Somewhat belated, but here, finally, is my Christmas day outfit.
One of the things that's been on my wishlist for a really long time is a knitted dress - they're normally so expensive, but I've been lucky enough to finally find two in the last couple of months on etsy.
Although I was after something more 30s-40s looking I'm delighted with this. It has a touch of Joan Holloway about it, don't you think? I'm rather getting into the late 50s - early 60s thing lately. Plus everyone said it looked lovely, and they can on occasion be a little dubious of some of my more vintagey looks. Anyway I had a lot of fun with the outfit and went full-on Mrs. Christmas with my rabbit fur hat (together with the matching muff I mentioned) and sparkly shoes.
My grandmother's 1950s Mikimoto pearl necklace, which my mother gave me, made the perfect finishing touch. The necklace is all the more special to me since Nanny lost most of her jewellery in a burglary when I was young.
