Party season has arrived, providing us all with an excuse to dress up in our most sophisticated eveningwear and get drunk until we’re sick on ourselves. I’m joking of course; I care far too much about my dresses to ever be sick on them. I’ll aim for the taxi floor or the nearest badly dressed person instead.
I like a red dress for Christmas (and for the other 364 days of the year), preferably in satin or lace. This one’s from Pin Up Girl Clothing and has a mystifying wraparound sash. If you buy the dress and can’t fathom the sash, don’t feel stupid for being outfoxed by a frock. It’s so confusing, the manufacturer has made a video tutorial just to show you how to do the pesky thing up.
Elizabeth Taylor is my vintage jewellery icon. In her words…
Yes, we do, Liz. Especially at Christmas. No-one wants to be upstaged by a fairy light. And sparkly things don’t just look pretty, they make you look pretty too by sneakily illuminating your face. Wearing a big pair of bejewelled earrings is like carrying around your own personal lighting director. When Elizabeth heard this news, she got a bit overexcited.
Here are some more showstopping frocks to get you in the party mood. Remember ladies, keep it classy to get the vintage look. Don’t dress like a ho ho ho. Unless you’re into that, in which case, all power to you – Merry Grindmas!
