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.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Watercolor Wonderland x Nasty Gal

Still in shock...  Apart a from my instagram sneak peeks, it's been torture keeping this secret, but now I can finally share the amazing little fact that yours truly was featured on the one and only Nasty Gal (falls out of chair)!! When I was first contacted by NG and asked to design a few exclusive illustrations/paintings, I'm pretty sure my response was some highly intelligent verbiage falling along the lines of, "Wha-um-can't breathe. OMG am I dreaming?" But okay, here's a totally cliché moment... dreams come true!
