A Little Topshop Dress

Dress - Topshop
Tights - Primark
Rings - Fashionology
Razzle Dazzle Nail Polish - Deborah Lippmann

I bought this Topshop dress last week, taking advantage of their free online delivery. It arrived just in time for a Christmas get-together with friends and I'm already in love with it. The low dip back is just high enough to cover my bra strap and it actually stays on my shoulders! It's a dark grey almost black covered in teeny coloured metallic threads that sparkle under the light. It's stretchy and breathable and perfect for eating lots in one sitting!

Just like last year we got together to swap presents and enjoy a three course Christmas meal. I just wore my Topshop Vectras and New Look blazer-coat (which I need to photograph soon!) to dress it down a bit.
This nail polish came in this month's GlossyBox and was a star addition for me.(more on this soon) It's my first Deborah Lippmann polish in such a beautiful colour for the holiday season. My mum and sister have already requested to wear it over Xmas.

I apologise for the quality of these pics, that's one thing I won't miss about Winter - the dark evenings! Come Spring I promise lots more outfit posts of better quality. 
I'm also wearing my hair extensions for the first time in months and if you follow me on Twitter you'll know I dyed them so they'd actually match my hair colour. I think I did a pretty good job.
I'm looking forward to the rest of this weekend's festivities, trying desperately to fend off illness as everyone in my house seems to have suffered or still is suffering from colds and flu. I'm writing this from work whilst drinking a Lemsip Max!
