December 18, 2010Holiday Dresses And Michelle Obama In Vintage Norman Norell
Who out there is excited to dress up for the Holidays?
Oh! Oh! *madly waving arms in the air* “Meeeeeeeeee!”
Well, maybe I am not as excited as our fashion-forward First Lady, Michelle Obama, who wore a vintage Norman Norell dress at a recent Christmas special taped at The White House.
Completely gorgeous! In the article, it also states that more vintage dresses are going to be worn by her in future appearances. Lovely.
But I am still pretty excited. And why am I excited, you ask? Oh, only because I have a killer Holiday outfit this year! Ka-Pow!
It consists of a retro leopard print dress with a teeny black sewn-in petticoat (Squee!), my grandmother’s amazing vintage necklace and (in a nod to the recent freezing weather) black footless tights. Very glam. It is supposed to be finished off with black and tan opened-toed shoes, but since the weather has decided to turn Arctic, I have been wearing leather boots with it. I have worn it to the theater, I am wearing it tonight to go out to a fancy restaurant, and I most likely will be wearing it for Christmas Eve. Good thing the dress is machine washable!
I will try to remember to take a picture tonight so everyone can admire my amazing fashion sense. *Fluffing hair*
In the meantime, I have found some totally amazing vintage Holiday dresses on Etsy so we can make like the First Lady for the Christmas. Man, Tom is lucky I have SOME self-control.
This gorgeous dress may look like it belongs to the summer, but a few sparklers and some vintage white fur accents will make it fit for an Ice Princess. From RaleighVintage.
