I love to have a new dress for Christmas. It helps build the excitement for the festive season and helps me feel good. Bon Marche offered me to try out one of their dresses as my Christmas frock this year. I picked this Red Velour Side Drape Dress and Necklace which is priced at £35.
It’s a very flattering cut indeed with a drapey bit at the front to hide any tummy issues. I love the fact that it comes with a matching necklace so you don’t have to go out and shop for accessories. All you need for your Christmas party is a pair of heels and a clutch bag.
I’m thinking I might wear it on Christmas day too. It’s a very comfortable dress to wear with its soft velour fabric and it’s very forgiving if you put away a big lunch. It’s also a perfect Christmas colour as it’s a dark, rich, ruby-red. It has elbow length sleeves, which provide some welcome extra warmth in winter.
Very practical too – you can pop it in the washing machine, so there are no expensive dry cleaning bills to pay.
