Christmas with Betty – 1950’s glamour

It’s December and Christmas is well and truly on its way. Now, I don’t know about you, but I have been thinking about what to wear to all of those Christmas parties for weeks now and I have found the gorgeous Betty Dress. 



There are so many things that I love about this dress, thatI truly don’t know where to start! Well, let’s start by stating the obvious...it has polka dots; the first box in my ‘Perfect Dress’ criteria ticked! Secondly, it is black (second box ticked) and features a rather festive red bow in the centre of the dress. Thirdly, it has a gorgeous lace panel at the top of the dress, making it perfect for day (with the additional of a black bolero) or night. However, last, but by no means least, the thing I love about this dress the most, is that it is lovely and stretchy!


So, even though it is a pencil dress, there is no need to deliberate over whether you should scoff that third mince pie. EAT IT! You will still feel comfortable in the Betty dress not matter how many pies you eat, due to her generous amount of stretch!


One word of warning regarding this dress is that it is of a pull-over style. There are no zips or buttons, so do make sure that you pull the dress on over your head, BEFORE you have done your hair and makeup!

Size wise, I am wearing a Size XS here, a UK Size 8 and I have the following measurements: Bust=35in, Waist=26.5in, Hips=34 in. According to the size guide, the dress should come up a little smaller than it actually does, so I would say that there is a good few inches of stretch in the dress. I did have a little trouble getting it over my head, but once in, it fit like a glove. The Betty Dress is £66 and available in two colour ways (black and blue) and available in sizes UK 8 – 18.


Plus, an added bonus is that these Lori gloves come with Tech Enabled touch finger tips, so you can add a video of yourself visiting Santa’sGrotto to your Instagram story without the need to remove your gloves! What a time to be alive!
