Dressember 2012, week 5

It's finally Week 5 and the last few days of Dressember 2012.  You can see the outfits we wore for Week 1 here, Week 2 here, Week 3 here and Week 4 here.

29th December

Today is an official bling theme day where Dressemberistas are encouraged to glam up in sequins and/or sparkle, so despite feeling far from sparkling right now thanks to a combination of lethargy and lurgy, we have donned our Blanes 'Mad Men' vintage cocktail dress in aqua lurex which was gifted to us by a friend a few years ago.

30th December

It's the penultimate day of Dressember and cold, dreich and downright miserable in our corner of Scotland, so we decided to brighten our mood with this purple and turquoise silk print dress with huge front pussy bow.

31st December, Hogmanay

How fast did December go? We can't quite believe it's Day 31 already and we have a whole New Year ahead of us, one in which we will be wearing many more dresses than usual thanks to taking part in Dressember. It has been a great pleasure to meet fellow Dressemberistas over the past few weeks, all of whom have brought their own unique sense of style and je ne sais quoi to the challenge. We hope some of them will also be up for the Frockery Fashion Challenge in February where we vaunt the vintage, rock the retro and celebrate the second hand for a chance to win £100 of frockery from our catalogue.

For the final day of Dressember 2012 we have gone back to the 70s with this navy print Susan Small dress, originally bought from Mr Ben's vintage shop in Glasgow some years ago, which has the most amazing crystal pleated flared sleeves and fit and flare styling. [Note to self: must not dip sleeves in the madeira sauce on tonight's menu!]

Happy New Year everyone and Lang May Your Lum Reek!
