Holiday Planner #1

It's never too early to start thinking about holiday! Shopping, decorating and party planning are just a few of the things we need to anticipate early, especially in these times. But we can still have a little fun in the meantime, and maybe even find a little lovely thing or two to make this season extra special! Surely you have at least one party to attend, and if not, why not plan on hosting one! This photo is a great place to start for a little glamorous, vintage inspiration!

Every girl needs to have had one memorable red dress in her life! This could be it for some lucky lady! From the 1950's, this silk chiffon gown flatters the figure with its Grecian asymmetrical draping. This gown is really a stunner, and because it's handmade, you'll be the only one at your event in anything like it! From Jackie D Retro Boutique. Dresses like this are why I just love vintage!

For an unexpected accessory, why not carry this hand painted fan. This one is extra special with it's embellishing and black hanging tassel. I guess your escort will just have to carry your lipstick in his pocket! I love the sellers name, too. Go check her out at Boudoir Barbie.

These are quite special black, opera length gloves! Unlike most styles out there, these are 1960's vintage Kay Fuchs, from Germany and are detailed with three black faceted beaded buttons on the inside of each wrist. Even the seller, Vintage Starr Beads, says they are pristine and are "holiday ready"!

Your just can't really make a mistake with these classic pearl drop earrings. Available from Forever Andrea, these have the added glitz of sparkling rhinestones to light up your perfectly applied holiday make up.

Wrapping paper in shiny silver, double-faced red satin ribbon, Perfume for Mom, cashmere robe for my sweetie, champagne, caviar! I need to make a list!

Now where did I lay my pen?......
