The date was planned, the food decided on; the only thing left was of course, the outfit! I always start with the shoes, as that is my favourite part of any outfit, and that of course takes me on to the handbag.
The bag is from Next a few months ago, I can't resist a pretty red bag, I think it was around the £30.00 mark. The shoes are from Primark. Originally they had a canvas tie to them but I didn't like it so replaced with a bright red ribbon.
Next comes the dress. Now under my new "As little black as possible" rule, I went shopping in the Dorothy Perkins sale a couple of weeks ago and uncovered a navy blue dress with white bows on. It was love at first sight and upon checking the price, £10.30, I practically snatched their hand off.
The complete was completed when I found a bright red cardigan from Primark, my first ever Primark purchase. Again, for £6.00, I was thrilled to get another bargain. So I am, dressed up for the night.

We were joined this year by some friends of my mum's and together we all enjoyed lovely food, all dressed up to the nines. I had my usual starter, Chicken Liver Pate followed by Salmon with Prawns and then Tiramisu.
Upon returning home I decided to take one last picture, I wasn't going to include it as you can tell the glasses of wine had been consumed, but it made me giggle so might have the same affect for you.

Do you have any family Christmas traditions?
