Referencing the holiday song, “Silver Bells”, I made a slight alteration in the lyrics (for the sake of this blog post). I often think of the season as a social time. This means parties, and lots of them: festive parties for your company, intimate gatherings celebrating with friends, and every event in between. And if you’re like me the inevitable question is, “what do I wear?”.
My favorite remedy to this question is vintage. Most of us don’t get the opportunity to dress up like we do for the holidays. Here’s a chance to wear that vibrant color or luxe fabric that you usually shy away from. Think of this time as an excuse to get fancy.
I recently discovered the lovely site Delena Vintage. They appreciate dresses from another era and highlight their finds.
This is a great time to indulge in sumptuous fabrics, like the red velvet shift above.
I love the simplicity of this chiffon party dress from the sixties.
Or for a more casual possible outdoor setting, why not wrap yourself in this lovely plaid cape?
Finally if you’re more interested in just making your accessories holiday oriented, why not a vintage beaded clutch? I particularly like the varying colors of stripes which you can coordinate with your outfit.Whatever you find yourself in this holiday season, I wish you joy and love!
