I havn’t got my presents ready yet, but I do know I want to wear this tulle and lace dress for Christmas. Or shall I alter it into a skirt? (well, not me….the tailor!)
What a busy month November was! Gerben’s birthday, many meetings, a few concerts and many dinners. Also visited my lung doctor. He will retire by the end of this year! How strange is that! When I first came to see him twenty years ago, I really didn’t think I would outlive his retirement. But very annoying, I thought it was a very good doctor who knew me through and through! And helped me through a very black period. Gerben and I had a lovely present with wine and cheese for him. He appreciated that a lot.
Anyway, it’s December now. And I had hoped that I would have bought the presents a little in time, but in the meantime I have nothing yet. Pff. Yes, I still have three weeks left but to think of something for Gerben! What a job!
My pre-loved lace and tulle dress
I showed you this dress last Monday at Stylish Monday. This is a pre-loved dress. But I think it has never been worn. The lace and tulle skirt is so beautiful, the blue is really cobalt blue. It is a of shoulder dress but the body is too tight for me. It is very nicely fitted but with my bad lungs I hardly get any air. So I will go to the tailor to have the body altered, or I have the dress made into a skirt. I tend to the latter. But this is not a dress that I will only wear at festive days, I like to wear lace and tulle any kind of day.
How I styled this dress
I love to wear this faux leather bolero on these kind of dresses. You have seen it before. I only wear tights with a print, or laced tights, when I wear a solid dress or skirt. Otherwise I think it is to much. The gun metal ankle boots fit perfect with the lighter color of the lace in the dress. I am wearing blue and light pink with gold earrings, but I think I will wear black earrings next time with the dress. If there is one thing that draws the attention in a outfit, I like to keep the rest calm.
What about you? Do you already know what you will wear at Christmas? Will it be it a festive outfit, or are you happy that you can relax in your lounge outfit at home. Nothing wrong with that of course! I will put out my party dress and slip into my pyjamas when the visit is gone and we can relax!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest.
