I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! I also wanted to thank you for all of the incredible support you have given to Brittany and I as we prepare to launch our Hey Doll Vintage Living Magazine. I still have more important news to share with you but this darn cold I have has slowed me down a bit-I should be able to announce it before the new year!
So, as some of you may recall, once in a while I post a special series called My Vintage Wardrobe. It consists of the things I have learned about vintage clothing as well as how I apply what I have learned into my own growing vintage wardrobe. All the things that are important such as, what colors look best on you and the wonderful world of trousers, dresses, etc. Today I would like to share with you what I wore for Christmas Eve.
Christmas Eve prior to this one I would always wear a pair of nice jeans and a red sweater or top. this year I changed into two outfits; one was a 1970's dress that reminded me of something Vera-Ellen wore in White Christmas and the other was a more casual look (my 40's jeans, a white blouse, and red cardigan) that I wore as we went house hopping that day.
I didn't know if I could make a 1970's dress look like it was a 1940's one but I think I did a pretty good job. I loved the way it fit and I am now inspired to search for more dresses that have a 1940's feel. It is great to score authentic 1940's clothing but the price difference is massive. Believe it or not I purchased this dress for just $27.00!!!!
I adore the last photo as my youngest baby grabbed my face to give me a kiss under the mistletoe! My little monkey boy sure like too kiss hehe
I hope Santa gave all of you loads of goodies! I cannot believe a New Year is about to begin! My family and I have dealt with some big challenges this year but there have been so many blessings-I cannot begin to count them. So instead of looking back at your year and thinking of all that you didn't do or didn't have or didn't get, perhaps we can all remember all that we did do, get, and have.
I feel grateful for all of you-many who I have forged friendships with and my wish for you for this New Year would be for good health, peace of mind, and joy.
Happy New Year!
