Christmas Special: Choosing The Dress

November 20, 2012 § Leave a comment

Today the realisation hit me – it is just over a month left until Christmas and I haven’t produced any holiday related content on my blog, let alone done any real life Christmas preparation. So I decided to start with all important choice of holiday outfits for ourselves, since we all know that is what we are all secretly looking forward to the most: our holiday wardrobe! Since I only have one month left and a whole bunch of Christmas related decisions to make I am doing this one the easy way. You can shop around for hours going from store to store to choose a dress, but sometimes you do not have to sacrifice the selection while shopping under one roof from great pre-selected range, cutting all the time wasting out. This is what I did today – I headed to department store House of Fraser which surprised me with the selection: there are literally thousands of dresses!

And another time saving technique (otherwise I still could have been there for days) is to decide exactly the type of dress you want for this special occasion, and the only way to do it, is to seek your inspiration before you head to the shops. My inspiration came from flicking through last year’s Christmas pictures – I once again fell in love with my family’s Christmas tree that was beautifully decorated in red and gold palette. And since red and gold also go perfectly with this holiday season, those are the hues I chose for my outfits. Since I also know that I am having a few Christmas parties and a few are going to be formal I am opting for full length gowns (haven’t had a reason to wear one for so long yet desperately want to). Thus I entered House of Fraser with clear image of what I want and surprisingly was still spoiled with choice! Here are my favourite styles that are also available online. So if you haven’t already, use this for inspiration, or pick your colour and style and set off to find your perfect Christmas dress!
