A Christmas Dinner

Thursday, December 23, 2010

I spent the most lovely evening last night having Christmas dinner with some truly fabulous people.
All the stops were pulled.

Homemade turkey dinner, classic English and American dishes, homemade desserts, presents on our chairs, overflowing champagne...

Laughter, love, and reasons to dress up in my festive vintage gear.
Military jacket, hat & purse - vintage
Inspiration here

Underneath was an excuse to wear a ridiculously sexy red dress I found via thrift a couple of weeks ago.

Not true vintage, just a cool find someone was silly enough to give up.
The hostess (my goddess of a friend) was so glamorous in her couture gown from Paris (that she found crumpled up in a ball at a charity shop for $8!)

It was literally jaw dropping gorgeous. With a draping cape back, elegant neckline, in a flawless silk fabric. ($8!!) See why we're friends?
It was so much fun that the hubs literally had to drag me away. Hope you have somewhere fabulous to go, somewhere soon. Happy holidays, guys. xx

Check back in tomorrow for the winner of the
vintage clutch giveaway!
