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 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  the red.



  1. Ooo--lucky you and Claudia. No Sasha gifts for me this year :( although I did participate in a swap :)

  2. Congratultions on finally joining the Jet Set of the Dollie Patch clothing collectors. A really lovely festive outfit and Claudia looks so warm and cosy in it, ready for whatever our unpredicable British climate decides to throw at us. I think that her hair and eye colouring are perfect with this rich looking cranberry colouring (plus I have a soft spot for these brunette haired, brown eyed girls.)
    I have had a few of Helena's outfits in the olden days before her clothing, due to huge demands, went out of my comfort zone price range so I know just how stylish, unique and lovely they are. A superb present from 'you to you!'
    Sasha love and 'well done' on this most attrtactive purchase. From Kendal.

  3. PS. Apologies for the spelling mistake of 'attractive.' Not long up so the eyes are still in a 'sleepy' mode.

  4. Very pretty! Red is such a nice warm colour for winter!

  5. Love those reds! Suit her perfectly. xxx Karin
