Party Girl

I sense a dark cloud creeping in the distance. You feel it too, I know. That foreboding sense of doom is the end of summer, and thus, the beginning of the holiday party season.

So you’re going to need a new evening gown. Don’t even think about wearing that one from last year. It’s tired and you know it. Be adventurous. Wear some freaking color you Quaker; it’s winter not a funeral. Or if you do go with black, make sure there are interesting details like lace or beading. Don’t make the accessories do all the work. And have some fun, man. It’s just a dress.

Here are some choice cocktail/evening gowns we found on etsy and eBay this week. Click on each image to see the full listing. Cheers.

Spotted at Target

Spotted at Target yesterday, some decent vintage-style cloches for $16. Not bad, Target, no bad. Unfortunately, they only come in one size and my head is on the small side. But hey, it’s what’s inside that counts, yeah? If you love this style, I recently found a nice crop of them on eBay and etsy. Click here to see them all.
