Vintage Christmas Party Dresses

With the arrival of every season, fashion retailers are quick at the draw to reveal their exciting new collections and most coveted items, especially with the approaching gift-giving spirit and Christmas carnival. Seasonal reds, greens, and classic black and white remain a holiday constant, as do runway-worthy pieces carrying over from previous seasons. This year, a few winter favorite must-haves include jewel tones, cozy knits, crushed velvets, tailored wearability, over-sized coats, and of course, the beloved knee boot. And while many fads may come and go, finding quick extinction to another's lasting presence, one consistently recurring craze remains the quintessential vintage party dress.

We’ve managed to go from rejecting and neglecting old styles and desperately trying to reinvent our own, to the sudden realization and unprecedented genius of historical apparel. We've watched and learned vintage and retro become iconic mainstays within the fashion industry, as the celebratory comeback of maxis, Victorian lace frocks, layered tulle, and floor-length pleats leave us breathless with fashion wanderlust.

One particularly well-known vintage brand is Joe Browns. Long established as a reliable catalog retailer, currently most sales are now made online at www.joebrowns.co.uk. Their new women's and menswear Christmas collections feature some of the latest winter trends, as well as a “New for Christmas” section showcasing gorgeous vintage dresses! So whether you want to make an entrance in shades of vibrant red or deep green, the Joe Browns Christmas range is a good place to look.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
