Santa Baby

red dress

Finally: my third holiday outfit option!  If you missed the first two, you can catch up here and here.  This gorgeous red dress was a birthday present from the sweet people at Unique Vintage.  I was so touched that they wanted to send me a dress of my choice, and I knew that this one would be perfect for Christmastime.  It has a built-in crinoline (always a bonus), and though you can't tell in these photos, the neckline is scalloped!  Plus, it goes perfectly with this Christmas ornament clutch from New Look.  What more could a girl want?  :)

For the past few years, my parents and I have had a traditional Jewish Christmas (i.e., going to the movies and out for Chinese food).  This year, we saw Tim Burton's new film, Big Eyes, which was really great.  I wasn't expecting to see so much midcentury loveliness (tons of classic cars and vintage dresses!), so that made it even better.  I didn't end up actually wearing this dress on Christmas Day, as it seemed a tad dressy for the movies (if you follow me on Instagram, you might've seen my real Christmas Day outfit), but I'm looking forward to remixing this dress for other occasions.  It would be such a wonderful Valentine's Day dress, too.

  1. That is one seriously stunning red frock! It shines with the spirit of the holidays, but will be equally at home during other times of year, which is something I generally look for in my own holiday attire. Really, really lovely accessorizing, too!
