Christmas in the City

Dress - Bettie Page
Shoes - Betts
Sunglasses - Sportsgirl
The city is looking wonderfully festive already and I couldn't help getting into the Christmas spirit by dressing like a candy cane to go shopping for Christmas ornaments! I bought this dress three years ago when I first started dressing vintage reproduction, and it has become a bit of Christmas tradition that I wear this dress throughout the festive season. This dress is special for another reason, as it is one of the first few dresses that I bought when I was first discovering vintage reproduction. It's funny because it says a lot about the fact my style really hasn't changed in the last few years, while my wardrobe however, has expanded!

    1. Hiya Rosie! I was totally stunned that someone in Brisbane knew my blog - no one has ever come up to me before so I hope you can forgive me for being so shy and tongue tied! It was lovely to meet you, your Hell Bunny dress that you were wearing was gorgeous!

  5. White and red dresses were made for you - so pretty! Very cute little kitten heels too. I love that you always dress for the occasion, something I would love to do as good as you do!

  17. Splendidly sweet Christmas dress! My (new) Christmas frock for this year (from Blue Velvet Vintage's house line of 50s style frocks) is red and white, too. We're going to be doing a shoot with it later this month and I can hardly wait!

    Big hugs from snowy Penticton (the first from my new computer :)),

  18. What a lovely dress you're wearing! It must be so odd to have Christmas without snow, I couldn't possibly imagine it.

    Fashionably,
