I'm dreaming of a velvet Christmas...

When I saw this dress in the charity shop,it was love at first sight. A pale grey and navy velvet midi dress, it was a blogger's dream! ;) 

Dress: Anna Belinda via charity shop, blazer: Tesco, belt: Primark, bag: Poisson Bleu, shoes: Bertie
I was a little unsure about how to style it after Mark said I looked 'Bavarian' in it but the gorgeous detailing and soft velvet convinced me that it would be the perfect dress for Christmas...


I paired it with a black slip dress and my beloved Bertie heels which showed off the button detail on the bodice and the gorgeously swooshy skirt. 


The name on the label said Anna Belinda and when I Googled it, it turns out they are dress designers based in Oxford. I don't know if this is a custom piece but it fitted like a dream and I couldn't have chosen a better dress for eating my body weight in food in! 

What did you wear for Christmas? How would you have styled it?

Oh my- beautiful! I love it when you find something so perfect in a charity shop. I also love (in a rather OCD way- accessories matching is the only thing I really get OCD about- generally I'm hideously disorganised and messy!) love the way the shoes match the dress so perfectly!
