As lovely as my Thanksgiving was, spending time with family and enjoying yummy food, I am sort of glad 2011 is coming to an end. It’s been a roller coaster of a year. Sometimes exciting, sometimes downright scary. I am currently busy getting my house all dressed up for the holidays, including searching for the perfect pink Christmas tree. I would prefer a real flocked one, but I struck out last year.

And speaking of dressed up…I came across this gorgeous 1950s dress on Etsy. The gold and light green make it a perfect holiday dress without being so cliche in terms of color. What I love about this dress is that it is not so holiday that you couldn’t wear it any other time of the year. And it feels like it can easily transition from holiday to spring. I can see wearing this with some killer patent leather booties or some pumps with some serious hardware – gold studs maybe?

What are you searching for this holiday season?

 

Dress available from Custard Heart Vintage on Etsy.com

This dress is so perfect! It’s so true that it can be used in various event, not only for the holidays. It only depend on how you dress it up! Accessories and shoes are the essential to accompany the dress according to how you want to wear it. I am looking for a lot of sequence this holiday season, possibly a dress like this one, short and chick, but fancy and serious at the same time.
