M Missoni dress* - not only does it tick all of the boxes above but it's fabulously made and makes me feel super special. The roll neck design makes it perfect for daywear, (these images were taken whilst out and about in North London doing a recce for a recent shoot), but because it's so beautiful it can also be dressed up for the evening with a pair of heels and a pretty clutch. I'm actually thinking about wearing it to a Christmas party later this week; I'm not one for "dressy" dresses anyway and the tartan makes it feel a little festive! Does anyone else have a Christmas party to plan for? What will you be wearing!?

We spent our afternoon chilling in our pyjamas because it was too cold to go out, and then we made mexican and minced pies in the evening whilst watching Dracula, (weird film). It's awful at the moment because whenever I get invited to parties or events I end up just wanting to stay inside in the warm and watch films... oh winter! I'll have to sort myself out soon and stop being such a hermit.

What I found most inspiring about this film however was the character Victoria Winters, played by the lovely Bella Heathcote, whose wardrobe throughout is cute and quaint with just the right amount of Gothic. Brought to life by costume designer Colleen Atwood, Victoria sports oversized collars, cardigans and pretty blouses, whilst her polished hair and doll-like features help to create a real Sixties vibe - basically I wish I was her.
The Whitepepper's Embroidery Detail Blouse, a navy cord pinafore from Mod Dolly, some white tights, (you can currently buy these from ASOS quite cheaply but American Apparel also sell them), and some pretty, mid-heel shoes - I personally quite like this velvet pair from Topshop. I know who I'll be dressing as for Halloween next year... talk about planning ahead!
