DIY: Feather Cuffs

What I'm Wearing: GILET, Primark | SHOES, Primark | Dress, AX Paris.

Hi everyone, this is our first outfit post of December! It's freezing cold outside so that's why I probably look like I'm in pain in these photographs, haha! I'm already getting quite festive as you can probably tell. I'm getting obsessed with glitter and sparkles. My black velvet sparkly dress was a present I got last Christmas and it is perfect for this time of year, don't you think? I absolutely love it and to top it all off it has a high neck to it.

However, there is something on my dress that wasn't there last year and that is the black faux fur cuffs on the sleeves! How cute is it? I'm not going to pretend that I got all creative and sewn this fur on myself because my lovely mum done it for me! I think it adds so much to the dress and makes it look so much more expensive. I can't remember the exact price of this dress but it was fairly cheap I think. I know I get loads of wear out of this in December. The fur was from Ebay and didn't take long at all to get sewn on. It was cheap and it's so soft! So if you'd like to be all orginal and spice your your own clothes, this is the perfect way to do it! Plus, it's really easy too!

Are you all looking forward to Christmas? I know I am!
