On Christmas Day In The Morning

Just before Christmas I was contacted by the lovely folk at Scarlett & Jo who sent me a stunning, beautifully festive swing dress that I knew I had to wear on Christmas Day as soon as I received it!

Dress - Scarlett & Jo, Tights - Evans, Boots - Evans.

Oh this dress, this dress! The short of it is - it is heaven! The material, the cut, the length, the added lace across the d├ęcolletage! Its just wonderful! The sizing is perfect and totally true to size - I got a 24 and it fits beautifully. The darting just under the bust means that although it is a swing dress, it has a great, super flattering shape that accentuates all the right places! The material feels fantastic against the skin, it's so soft, even the lace! 

This dress is available in black too but I thought as it is the festive season - red would be a good choice and I feel I was definitely right! People that say redheads can't wear red, are very wrong in my opinions! I've never owned anything from Scarlett & Jo before but since receiving this dress, I know that I'm going to become a regular customer. The quality is beautiful and the fit is fantastic! 

My beautiful man and I had a lovely Christmas Day with his family, enjoying lots of delicious food and drink, presents and fun! 

Unfortunately later that evening hip pain I had woken up with got so bad, I had to go to A&E and since then I have been in and out of hospital with a suspected hip joint infection. I am usually pretty hardy with pain and can get by and ride it out, but this is like nothing I have ever experienced before.

I am now back at home with lots of painkillers. I still can't walk more than a few steps without crutches and they still aren't 100% sure what's the matter with me but I am very, very slowly improving. So although this Christmas has been a slightly funny one it has made me extra thankful for the incredible people I have in my life. Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year ya'll!

Lots Of Love,
