Winter Wonderland-A Vintage Outfit Post

Which means it is time for one of my favorite holiday traditions, seasonal dressing.  Christmas sweaters, novelty prints, festive jewelry, I love it all.  That is why when I saw the Bernie Dexter Veronique dress in Winter Wonderland print on super sale last May I had to snap it up even if it meant I'd be waiting a looong time to wear it.  This dress has been hanging in my closet for 6 months and I've been itching to wear it, but I'm a stickler for waiting for the right season for an outfit, so I didn't put it on until  Thanksgiving, but Oh My Gosh was it ever worth the wait! I love it!




It makes me feel like I'm living in a snow globe, even if I'm just standing on my grubby urban porch.



























The print is just too beautiful



and the cut is very flattering.  I ordered my usual size in Bernie Dexter, large.  It's maybe a little big on me in the waist and chest, but nothing terrible, and I like a bit of wiggle room.



I paired the dress with a 1960s sequin cardigan




and a hair flower from Chatter Blossom.  Jamie made the flower to match the dress and she did a perfect job.




I also added one of my petticoats from Amazon to make the most of the full 50s style skirt and I wore my 1950s style Baby Doll pumps from Remix Vintage Shoes.  These shoes are surprisingly comfortable for high heels.




You may ask where did I wear this fancy Holiday outfit?  The answer no where special.  I've worn it twice so far once to get Bubble tea and once to the movie theatre to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (very good by the way and it has a pug in it!).   I'll definitely keep wearing it.  After all Christmas comes but once a year and we aught to make the most of it!

    You are very patient to wait to wear until the right season. But it sure was worth the wait :-) I love the matching hair flower, too!
