Russian roulette...

Whenever I wear this dress, I end up pairing it with faux fur of some kind and feeling incredibly Russian- I think it is the rich colour and the fact is it wool but who knows! When the snow covered the ground last week, it was the first thing I reached for and despite the short sleeves I was super cosy. Wearing this dress is always a bit like Russian roulette as it is so unpredictable, sometimes it works and other times I just look like a sausage, hopefully this was the former! ;)

Dress: ASOS via charity shop, faux fur gilet: Dorothy Perkins via eBay, tights: Marks & Spencer, bag: United Colours of Benetton shoulder bag c/o Spartoo shoes: Betty London ankle boots c/o Spartoo
 When our team won the quiz at #SWBXmas, one of the prizes was a Crown & Glory voucher and I couldn't have been more excited. I have written before about how much I love Sophie's accessories and I was super pleased to add these bobby pins to my collection. The colours are absolutely gorgeous and perfect for adding some interest to an otherwise dull hairdo...


 I really love these boots (so much so that I also bought them in brown!) and they kept my feet nice and cosy in all the snow. I have had these tights for years but the pattern is subtle enough to jazz up this outfit without drawing too much attention to my legs (never a good thing!)


What have you been wearing in the snow? Do you have 'unpredictable' outfits?
P.S. This post was done in collaboration with Spartoo

LOVE the dress, you look so glamorous. What a find! Really like those bobby pins too. I love crown and glory but I find a lot of their "big" hair bands too be a bit OTT for day-to-day use but these are just gorgeous xx

I'm so glad the snow has gone - my walks to the station in the morning were something I had started to dread because of the snow! Your glasses are so so amazing Maria.

What a wonderful outfit! I know what you mean by the color, it does give that Russian feel when you add more to it. Definitely looking like a Russian socialite! :) xx
