Like a lot of people, the idea of owning something vintage and unique really appeals to me, but I don’t always have the time nor energy to rifle through rails of vintage to find something perfect. But ASOS Marketplace have a great vintage selection, and regularly create edits of the best vintage jumpers, jackets, or bags, so you don’t even have to go through all of the stock online! I’m always on the lookout for a unique dress for Christmas, something I’d be happy to eat my weight in Christmas dinner in, but also festive and flattering (a tricky criteria I’ll admit). So when I spotted this velvet dress, I knew it would tick as many of the boxes as was realistically possible, plus it was in my favourite colour!
Being the New Girl superfan that I am, I took a leaf out of Jess’s book when styling the dress- which means include at least one animal-shaped item and a bow ; ). The beautiful hummingbird ring and bunny ears bag would make Jess proud, I like to think..! I could definitely picture her wearing this outfit for a Christmas do, but then I am a little biased… Plus, Zalando are running a competition where winners receive a New Girl boxset! I’ll have my fingers (and everything else) crossed for that!
P.S. A friend commented over on my Instagram that I resembled a certain Mrs. Claus in this outfit, and I’m secretly quite pleased with that! x
