Gingham Fancy

I kinda shared this dress last Saturday, it provided the skirt for my Christmas tree jumper.   And what a beautiful base it was!  It's another Marina from Tara Starlet, the fabric is less stiff than my checked Marina which makes it easier to wear as a day dress.  It's still a taffeta so looks really glam with heels and even works with a Christmas jumper over the top - the perfect versatile dress!  I am hoping Tara Starlet makes this style in some pretty cottons for summer.  I love wearing dresses with sleeves all year round and cotton would be perfect.  Fingers crossed. 

I am so looking forward to today, I have had a lovely lie in which was much needed.  I off to get my nails done, doing a spot of Christmas shopping with Gray before going to see Shed Seven tonight with my besties.  Perfect.  Shed Seven is our Christmas tradition, I get really sad on the years they don't do a December tour.  The atmosphere is amazing, so many happy people singing along.

 Dress: Tara Starlet
Shoes: Clarks

I've been entering lots of giveaways recently in the hope I might win something.  I never seem to win blog giveaways but have been relatively lucky with brand ones.  I have entered the giveaway for UnderU yesterday in the hope I might win and can get those slippers for Gray as an added bonus pressie.  Not that he needs any other pressies now I have a PS4 for him!  Spoilt boy!

Talking of giveaways I have chosen my winner for the box of goodies - Alex!

The joke that made me laugh the most -

Why is Christmas the cheesiest holiday?
Because of baby cheeses

HAHA! I do love cheese and it forms the perfect cheesy Christmas dress!

Send me your details please Alex :)
