Five Take Do Festive

Hello! I'm very honoured and excited to be taking part in the revival of "Five Take". If you're not familiar with it, 5 bloggers, Claire, Nicole, Rebecca, Gina & myself pick a theme each week and blog about our own interpretation of said theme. Gina and myself are newbies, so be kind, but if you'd like to see how the other ladies rock a theme, click below for some examples of past posts.....

In honour of the upcoming festive period, however you may celebrate it, we decided to go with just that "festive" and here's my take....

As some of you may know, I'm not actually that big of a fan of the festive period, but this being my first "Five Take", I thought I'd throw myself in whole heartedly.

I went for the traditional red, a risky choice as you can tread a thin line between looking festive and looking like Mother Christmas, I think I got away with it?!

I'm a little teapot, short and stout........
Dress - Tesco
Belt - Simply Be (past season)
Tights - Evans (not available on web)
Shoes - Miss L Fire (past season)
Necklace - Not sure V old!
Headband - Primark
Handbag - Gift

Terrible photograph, I'm still getting to grips with the self timer!!


I accessorised with warm woolly tights and cute vintage inspired heels. The belt adds definition to the waist, but is elasticated at the back in case I eat too much turkey! I chose the necklace because some of the links remind me of snowflakes, and the headband is just so cute and has a real wintery feel about it. The clutch bag adds a bit of sparkle.



Head on over to the other Five Take folks to see how they got on..... ClaireNicole, Rebecca & Gina
