Christmas eve dress - 1950s fitted shift dress (still not fitted enough on the waist, hence the belt) in Christmassy green, black and red plaid, with a red ribbon rosette decoration. Vintage 1950s-60s long string of plastic rosebud beads. Wool beret with bow from Accessorize. The outfit really calls for elbow-length red gloves, but I don't have any, so black short gloves will have to do. Mince Pies with homemade pear mincemeat (pears from mother's garden) by my domestic goddess sister.
