Holiday Dress & Vintage Swing Coat

Holiday Dress & Vintage Swing Coat

This Anthropologie halter dress is perfect for the Holidays. The festive color, full skirt and feminine design make it a Holiday home run. I paired it with suede pumps, glitzy dangles, crystal stretch bracelet and satin clutch. To top it off I threw on my vintage red and black swing coat and was ready for the party.

Decisions on hair and makeup are part of dressing up. When my hair was longer I frequently wore it up or back, especially when I dressed up. Since my hair is much shorter now, best decision, I choose to stick with my every day style. As far as makeup goes, I’m a bit more heavy handed with my eyes than for my usual day-to-day look. I tend to use darker browns or navy to create a smoky eye, which I love, and of course red lips.

This vintage red and black reversible swing coat is still one of my favorites.  I’ve had it so long the tags are gone and I have no idea who made it. It’s the heaviest and warmest coat I own and unfortunately there are few opportunities to wear it in Charleston.  It was perfect for those Michigan winters.

I love how the tie around the neck becomes a necklace for the back.  If you look closely you can also see the netted skirt underneath the dress that adds fullness and movement.

This dress can easily double as a resort/summer dress — score for stretching your wardrobe dollars.  How gorgeous would it look with a pair of slides, wide brim hat, fun earrings and your favorite sunnies!  An item must earn its keep in your closet.
