Wednesday Addams Outfit For The Winter Solstice

It was the winter Solstice a few days ago.The longest night of the year is honoured by many traditions as a sacred and rich time. In the past, it's been a night to gather round the fire or set out candles to call back the Sun.
I had my mum to visit and we had a Winter Solstice feast, lit candles and made merry.

How the dress looks on the S and J website

And here it is on me

This outfit seems perfect to celebrate a tradition with more than a nod to pagan times. Sure I know by channelling Wednesday Addams I am getting my Gothic all mashed up with the pagan but fashion see no colour, and cares not  a jot for authenticity (well that's my excuse)

This black tunic dress with lace collar by Scarlet and Jo £38 seems perfect for winter celebrations. Its chic and understated (even  a little bit pilgrimish if there can be such  a thing) but also has a jaunty 1960's feel with its white lace collar and A line shape.

I love the lace collar with pearl detail
The sizing on this is true so no need to size up or down and the thick jersey fabric means it isn't clingy at all. It feels beautifully made as is always the case with Scarlet and Jo.

Mary Jane's from primark

Never one to avoid flogging a theme to death I have gone totally Christina Ricci in my inspirations.Plaited hair, black tights and even a pair of patent Mary Jane shoes (£4 from primark)

J'Adore Wednesday Addams
I'm serving fat Wednesday Adams realness

I'll stop wearing black when they make  a darker colour

Whether you are celebrating the winter solstice,Christmas, Ḥănukkāh,Pancha Ganapati or simply using the holidays as a time to get together with friends, family or just enjoy some quiet reflection I hope you have a wonderful time.

*I never lie to you dear readers I was gifted this frock-the opinions however are my own*
