Merlot + Gold

unique vintage roman holiday dress

I can't believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I've always found that having pretty dresses for the holidays makes me even more excited for festivities, and this oxblood colored dress from Unique Vintage is no exception. I love the scalloped neckline and rich color, and the addition of the sleeves to this style comes in very handy for the cooler weather here. I found this particular style to run smaller than some other house brand vintage dresses, so I'd recommend sizing up – especially if you're like me and would prefer to have a bit of wiggle room in the waist to make it through Thanksgiving dinner!

I don't wear a ton of jewelry, but I do love delicate necklaces (especially in gold for the holidays!). I've featured my custom name necklace from Onecklace before on my blog, which I wear often, but when they reached out to me again to review another item, I wanted to try something different. It's weird: music is such a huge part of my life, but I don't actually own that many music-themed pieces! As a singer (and as the child of two musicians), I had to go for this beautiful treble clef necklace. It's the perfect length (which you can choose yourself, along with your choice of chain and finish), and it's of excellent quality. Although I opted to review a necklace, Onecklace also makes earrings, bracelets and rings, and they have a huge selection filled with awesome gift ideas! If you're looking for something special for the holidays (for yourself or someone else!), you can use the code Sammi10 at checkout for 10% off your purchase!

I'm also totally thrilled that I finally have some Loly in the Sky flats to call my own! I love these dressy gold flats (aren't the squared-off toes such a cute feature?), and they're going to become a staple for many of my holiday outfits. Pretty much all of their shoes are so charming and sweet – I have about five pairs on my wish list right now, like these sprinkle flats(!) and these quotation mark flats. Although I normally wear a size 9 in heels, I sometimes wear an 8.5 in flats, and I was advised to size down to the 8.5 on these; the fit is absolutely perfect, and they're super comfortable and padded on the inside. Even the packaging the shoes came in was adorable!

I'm feeling very thankful for all of the new and exciting things that have come my way this year: lots of new creative opportunities, achieving personal goals, new beginnings. I still have lots of work to do on myself, but that's always going to be the case. Right now, I'm glad to be where I am, and I feel very lucky to be surrounded by lots of love and constant support. I'm also thankful for pumpkin pie and my mom's mashed potatoes. :) What are you most thankful for this year?

Have a happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Gorgeous dress on you. I love the color, and especially love it paired with gold!

  2. This dress and colour is absolutely stunning on you! Happy Thanksgiving! (It feels so funny saying that because our Canadian Thanksgiving was over a month ago!)

  3. You look beautiful Sammi!!!! I love your treble clef necklace! It is beautiful and delicate and very much in your style!x

  4. Gorgeous ensemble! I completely agree with you about how having lovely clothes help make the holidays seem all the more merry and bright. It pains me a bit that a lot of people scarcely dress up at all any more for the biggest celebrations of the year. It's a beautiful tradition and one the deserves to be kept alive, arguably, all the more so, in our ever more casually attired society.

    Joyful Thanksgiving wishes!
    ♥ Jessica

  5. Love it all, from head to toes!You look lovely!
    Kisses from Spain!

  6. Love the outfit and the delicate necklace! I had no idea you were a musician. Do you sing in a band (or classically?)
