Hi all,
I am wearing the attached dress on Christmas day, with ankle boots, 100 denier black tights, a decorative belt and a shoulder bag. I hadn't thought about a jacket but I now wonder if I should have a jacket or wrap or something. What do you think?
Best wishes,
FH x

Great youthful outfit FlyingHxndbag I suppose it’s down to how warm you will be. In my house, I would need an extra layer. A black fur gilet would look good and maybe a big, light soft black scarf.

A vest

Thanks Hollysteers, that's a good idea, I do have a black faux fur bomber jacket but I think I like the idea of the gilet. I think I'll wear something so I can have it on in some photos and off in others. X

Whitewavemark2, why would I wear a vest over my dress? That's something a child would wear under its clothes. X

You d already posted this in another thread !!!

FlyingHxndbag Thu 22-Oct-20 19:12:46

BlueBelle, no I didn't, I posted about my Christmas plans, which I don't wish to discuss. X

BlueBelle Thu 22-Oct-20 19:18:48

Oh yes you did you put the same photo up and had the same responses Perhaps you ve forgotten

FlyingHxndbag Thu 22-Oct-20 19:23:12

I posted about my Christmas plans and showed the picture of my dress. I am now showing the photo so people can advise what to wear with it. X

BlueBelle Thu 22-Oct-20 19:36:21

You already had advise

FlyingHxndbag Thu 22-Oct-20 19:44:00

I didn't ask what to wear with it so no, I didn't have advice on this. X

I’ve not thought further than breakfast tomorrow let alone what to wear in 8 weeks time.

We've only just had fish pie never mind breakfast tomorrow!

Very nice FH, it looks quite short so you must have nice legs! Definitely a jacket or wrap, it could be quite cold by then. 🎄

The weather forecast is for Arctic weather

It's looks so short, I would worry about you bending down in company!
I once had to speak to a young colleague after she bent down to pick something up.
It left absolutely nothing to the imagination.blush
I thought our male headteacher was going to have a heart attack.

That’s a lovely vest Callistemon
I’m assuming it’s thermal - who is it by?

SpringyChicken Thu 22-Oct-20 20:08:31

I'd wear a coatigan, probably pale grey.

SpringyChicken Thu 22-Oct-20 20:10:22

I think the vest would show, Callistemon. The dress neckline is quite wide

Hetty58 Thu 22-Oct-20 20:12:29

Brilliant joke FlyingHxndbag - you are joking, aren't you?

Marydoll Thu 22-Oct-20 20:12:47

Maw, I have an M&S one like that. They are a godsend in chilly Glasgow. 🥶

It's Damart - of course, MawB2!

I understand that Princess Diana always wore thermal underwear under her lovely silk clothes.
Well, not all of them, obviously.

Callistemon Thu 22-Oct-20 20:16:01

Perhaps not this one

Callistemon Thu 22-Oct-20 20:17:01

That's odd - the picture didn't appear at first

Which boots, FH?
