Burgundy velvet...

Christmas can be quite strange. It's probably when you spend the longest on the sofa but your clothes tend to be pretty fancy and unsuited for slouching - in my house at least! I picked up this velvet shift dress during Gap's Black Friday sale and I couldn't be more chuffed with it. The simple shape makes it easy to wear and the burgundy colour is pretty festive, even though I will definitely be wearing it all year round. I couldn't believe how pale it made me look though, I am almost blending into the wall behind me!

Dress: Gap, tights: Tesco, shoes: Marks & Spencer
I layered Topshop's Get Me Bodied Christmas Lip Bullet and Revlon's lipstain in Crush to get the perfect berry shade and although it's a little bit darker than I would normally go for, I quite liked it. It is weird, I am happy as Larry in bright lipsticks but nude or dark ones give me the heebie-jeebies!

I have long loved nude fishnets for adding a bit of texture to an outfit (I even wore them to my graduation!) and when I saw that Accessorize was selling them, it's safe to say that I stockpiled a few pairs! They are way more interesting than plain nude tights and weirdly make it easier to walk if you are wearing heels, I guess it's easier for your feet to grip inside your shoes?! 

Any tips for wearing dark lippie?

I have a weak spot for anything velvet, I never think of looking in gap for some reason! x

You look gorgeous. I've been loving velvet dresses myself recently, investing in a nice navy blue one for over Christmas.

Love this dress! I never think to look in Gap as I associate it just with jeans and jumpers! x

This dress is a winner! The colour, the fabric and the cut are all amazing. It would be really use styled as a pinafore or with a leather jacket to toughen it up a little... I'm going to have to buy it now, I've so many ideas how I'd wear it!! Off to search high and low on Gaps website! x
