Matching Your Dresses To Your Teaware Part 11: Golden Fleur De Lis

 It's a fleur de lis and holly pairing today! 

Well there's no actual holly anywhere on the blog post today but I wanted to feature this pairing just before the Christmas holiday because to me gold is a classic if not a staple elegant addition to anyone's Christmas color scheme.

Heart of Haute's Monique dress in gold Fleur de Lis found at Cats Like Us blows my mind! I love the metallic all over fleur de lis pattern in this print. Together with the classic boatneck and a-line styling of the Monique dress, this dress makes for a beautiful and elegant dress that I think would be perfect for Christmas morning!  This dress comes with a matching self fabric tie belt which can be tied into a dainty bow in either the front or back of the dress.

This elegant dress pairs perfectly with the Spode Fleur de Lys teapot.

Spode is a longtime standing company that dates back to 1770. The name is synonymous with quality teaware and dinnerware products. While they have many pieces in their collection that exude class and elegance, their Fleur de Lys teapot really stands out as a tour de force piece! This teapot found at the Bowl Company features a distinctively fluted Chelsea shape, the term which defines all the numerous embossed ridges along the body of the teapot and lid. The details on this teapot do not stop there! The fluted Chelsea shape extend all the way to the knob of the tea lid throughout the body of the spout, and can also be seen along the handle of the teapot. While this is an indisputably elegant teapot, what I personally love most about this teapot is the all over gold fleur de lys pattern accompanied by the filigree detail at the edges of the lid and top of teapot.

The all over fleur de lys print in the teapot coordinates perfectly with the all over gold fleur de lis print in Heart of Haute's Monique dress. And that they are both in metallic gold make this a quintessential pairing perfect for your most bedecked Christmas holiday.
