I have seen lots of these lovely styled outfits by Helena of Dollie patch that she makes in the winter months, so I have wished I had bought and some have flown to high to buy.

But when I saw this one before Christmas I just had to make a bid. I have been very into red in the later part of 2012 and this beautiful warm cranberry colour attracted me immediately.

Claudia very kindly said she would wear it first! and I do think it suits her dark colouring.

I love the two little tassels hanging from both the hat and the dress.

 A back view showing the tassels. I have teamed it with some boots by Lisa Hartley but i need to see if she has any in a red to match !

Lastly a close up of Claudia looking pretty and warm in red .
