Tartan || The Pretty Dress at Christmastime



Let's be festive all month!  

The glamorous options at The Pretty Dress Company make for endless soiree looks, day or night.  Today's dress, Hepburn, is one that I particularly love for daytime.  A high neckline brings sophistication, while a V-shape back adds subtle sensuality.  Classic tartan print and a full 50's skirt complete this feminine frock, and I added a navy crinoline to match.  More in TPDC for the holidays to come...

Silver & Silk || Holidays with The Luxelle



Elegant, intricate, and original ... this is how I would describe The Luxelle.   It's such a pleasure to share with you this glamorous yet affordable luxury brand, with collections inspired by history from the west to the east.  

The Shirwani silk blouse immediately caught my eye, as it's style reflects the elegance of my favorite era, the 1940's.  I could easily see Lana Turner, Hedy Lamar or Barbara Stanwyck gracing a piece like this!  Aside from the gorgeous fabric and glamorous design, I can't get enough of it's unique shade... a shimmery, dusty silver gray.

Accompanying this ensemble, is one of the most breathtaking handbags I've ever seen.  Made of true silver-plating, this vintage-inspired clutch features exquisite, intricate fanlike detailing, with a royal blue velvet interior.  It is a statement of vintage glamour, that is for sure!  To match today's sultry 40's aesthetic, I donned victory rolls and sparkling crystals to complement such beauty.  Be sure to visit The Luxelle and follow on Instagram.

Holiday Leaves || Wintry with Top Vintage



It's almost December!  As if to welcome the holiday magic, leaves around town are colored with a mixture of festive red, green & gold.  Today I'm sharing more of Top Vintage Boutique, with two very wintry looks... in deep wine & leopard-accented noir.

I have such a weakness for beautiful coats, and the tempting selection at Top Vintage has me lusting over every single one.  The elegant 50's Jane Dress is shockingly comfortable, yet so flattering and glamorous.  I could easily see this piece being worn day into night!

Welcome, December!
