Hello Everyone I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas with one of my recent favourite festive outfits.
It has recently been a bit quiet around here as I have been a bit ill the past few weeks and uber busy at work, but I very much hope this is going to get much better very soon…
Dress – Ann Harvey Baroque Print Dress* (Was £45, Now £22.50)
Leggings – Simply Be
Shoes – Deichman Winter Sale
Shawl – Generic Ebay
How I Will Be Celebrating
Theoretically for me as a German, yesterday the 24th would have been the most important day of Christmas. However, when in rome… So today I will meet up with a good Uni friend and will have Christmas with her and her family as I unfortunatelly could not make it home for the holidays this year.
The Ann Harvey Baroque Print Dress*
I am very much in love with this festive Ann Harvey Baroque Print Dress*. Initially I was a bit afraid that the red colour would not work with my currently pink hair. When trying the dress on I was doubly happy that it did as I absolutely adored the shape even more than I did judging by the pictures of the dress online.
Although it is not specificly a vintage or a 50s style dress I could not help but be reminded of a mad men style frock. I am not sure if it is my figure or the cut that is doing it, but I am loving it.
Another plus point for the dress is the cleavage. Showing some of your assets off without being too revealing, which is always a winner and for a lady with a g-cup bust often quite hard to find. This dress, with the wrap detailing appears to accommodate a larger or a smaller bust alike. Well done Ann Harvey!
Ann Harvey was one of these shops that just had not been on my radar yet, but I am glad they approached me for this review. Ann Harvey might not become my default go to shop but when looking for classic and above all classy fashion, they are definately the right place
Ann Harvey’s Winter Sale
They currently have a winter sale on, with up to 50% reduction. The dress reviewed in this post is actually one of the reduced pieces. So it might be worth having a nosey around over the holidays. On top of this, if you are a new customer you can make use of a 10% reduction using the code HELLOTEN.
The German Christmas Markets
I last wore the dress to the German Christmas Markets here in Manchester. Every year I am looking forward to it as it is a little piece of home for me. A year without a bag of sugar and cinnamon candied almonds (Gebrannte Mandeln), a Bratwurst and an overpriced mulled wine just is not complete.
The day was surprisingly warm for this time of year and so I actually ended up wearing just the dress with a shawl and some lovely ankle boots from the Deichman Winter sale, my newest addition to the shoe collection. My shoe collection is slowly getting out of hand… but I will address this in a later post…
Do you have any Christmas traditions you can’t live without?
Merry Christmas Everyone
