24 days until.....

Here's an out take from the shoot I did for my Christmas column in Metro News. I am so happy I finally get to decorate the house, I've been bursting to get the kitsch out since the beginning of November!
I found this dress at Savers, it's hand cut and hand made. I'd put it around mid 50s and I think it will be perfect on Christmas day. I always buy a new dress to wear, I didn't think I'd find this years in Savers, and a vintage gem at that!
Happy decorating!

Oh my, I can just imagine how gorgeous your place must look at this time of year :). Great picture, I love how the red of your lips is reflected in your dress and the little bird, so cute!
How do you make the tedious task of growing your fringe out look so chic and effortless?!

Skye said...

I was so excited to get out the decorations today too (although they are totally toddler-friendly and not at all chic like yours). Love the dress, good score!

I love your Cherry Blossom tree. Very stylish as one would expect LM.

I too always have a 'new' dress for Christmas! I have a vintage Alfred Shaheen that I'm saving for this year!

Great dress, what a find! And I love these pics too – and I want the bird!

K.Line said...

Great shot! I've always wondered how people in the southern hemisphere approach Xmas (a hol so associated with piles of snow and freezing cold, short days etc.) Your tree idea is so unique, so perfect for celebration in a warm time of year.

Fashion Tidbits said...

What a gorgeous tree! I love the little bird. Does he have a name, or is it only I who name every inanimate object in my house? Probably. You look stunning, as well - I love the print, and your red lipstick looks particularly vibrant.

Sal said...

What a fantastic score! I'm sure that fab frock will get some non-Christmas use, too. Your decorations are glorious, Lady - if my cats wouldn't destroy them in an instant, I might attempt something similar.

Your Christmas decorations are far from kitsch, they are the classiest decorations I've ever seen. That bird is so cute. I love your dress and your 'tree'!
