December Daily Outfits - December 1, 2008

When I was a kid, I loved Advent calendars: all those windows waiting to be opened with treats or secrets behind. I couldn't wait to open one window a day to see what came next and I don't know how I managed to be disciplined enough to not just go crazy and open the entire thing in one seating. I guess I liked the anticipation more than the prize.

Now that it is December and you can actually say Christmas aloud without someone giving you the "drop dead" look I thought it would be fun to post an outfit everyday until Christmas, much like revealing a new window on the Advent calendar.

First up it's the dinner and a movie outfit, ideal for meeting up with friends for a casual week night out.It's slightly punky- with the boots and the knee socks, and slightly Parisienne, thanks to the stripy dress and red beret. I know it's a bit of a style cliché to team red with black and white stripes but there's a reason why it's a cliché - it just works.
