A velvetty vintage christmas dress

I’ve been a bit quiet here lately owing to a rather unfortunate injury. Back at the end of November I broke my foot, as you can see here!




But, that hasn’t stopped me from wearing very fun vintage outfits (you’ve got to accessorise an air cast somehow!) Last night it was my friend Tasha’s house warming/ christmas party and I decided to go full on christmassy with my outfit. The dress is a 1950s debutante dress and is by Marcel Fenez, the  label states ‘Creation de Paris’ which means it must be a copy of a Paris original.

I wore the dress with some dangly 1950s earrings and a statement 60s bracelet. I also decided to do something a bit different with my hair yesterday (not that it lasted very long in the weather last night) partly owing to the fact I didn’t manage to curl it very evenly using my curlers (one day I will learn…one day!), but I quite like the effect it created.

I’ll be back soon with more posts about some of my latest horrockses purchases!
