Christmas Party

Hi everyone. On Saturday night it was one of my favourite times of the year which is my husband's work Christmas party. It's the same every year and this is our sixth year of attending. It's a cruise around Sydney Harbour with free drinks and amazing food. It's the perfect opportunity to dress up (at least for me, no one else was quite this dressed up). I've been waiting for three months to wear this scarlet lace dress and I couldn't be happier I finally had the chance. It's my favourite dress I've ever owned. This dress was released as part of the Dolce Vita Collection at Kitten D'Amour and I fell in love with it instantly- there is no other dress which represents my style so perfectly. The lace is so beautiful and I adore the ballerina length. The detailing is so pretty and delicate. I also wore a petticoat underneath to make the dress have even more of a vintage silhouette. As the dress is exclusively a special occasion dress and was the most expensive piece I've ever bought, I could only justify it knowing I had the cruise to attend, in addition to a wedding (which coincidentally is next Saturday). Isn't it just the best when you finally get to wear a piece after waiting for a long time!? I very rarely go out on a Saturday night so it was nice to have a change, it was a really enjoyable night. I feel like I've turned into an old boring person as I really struggled to stay out so late and even fell asleep on the way home on the train haha. The night would have been perfect if the weather wasn't quite as cold. I look forward to our annual tradition of attending next year.

The pair of you look amazing!!!! Your dress is truly stunning! I like the fact you always look like a lady Imogen!!! Your husband looks very dapper too!!! It sounds like a great occasion! Nice to see Juliette Princess Miracle too!x
P.S. I have a favour to ask- I've entered a competition with Lady Vintage London with an outfit and I was wondering if you'd take a look and if you like me outfit, perhaps give me a like- if not, don't worry, but I'd love if if you were able to!!!
