Holiday Style: Vintage Glam

holiday-style-with-faux-fur-and-green-polka-dot-dress-1024x749

I’ve expressed my love for vintage many times on this blog, there is just something so special about being able to wear pieces that were a part of someone else’s life before… in a different time. I have been fortunate enough to acquire some pieces from my grandmother, and have also loved searching for vintage pieces online and while thrifting. Vintage pieces are so well made, it makes it worth the purchase even if sometimes the price is a little more steep than I want to pay. I discovered this faux fur jacket and polka dot green maxi at American Gothic Antiques in Stillwater, MN. So far, my favorite area nearby to shop for vintage pieces! There are a few other antique stores in walking distance.

I added some emerald statement earrings and a bit of red lipstick to really set this holiday look. I also brushed out my curls like I did here to achieve a more glam vintage style. Even though sometimes the vintage I buy is a bit more pricey, I was lucky to walk out with both of these pieces for under $40. The dress is a stunning green and will be something I can wear in the spring and summer. As far as the faux fur coat, this is the second one I’ve found and it is just different enough to justify having two). Some people might think that’s crazy, but I love the different shades in the coat and it is so warm. It also makes me feel instantly glamorous!

Patterned Wrap

This gorgeous patterned wrap has just a hint of metallic in it, making it perfect for this time of year. It gives it just enough of the holiday feel without being too obvious. I am also always am looking for ways to add color to my wardrobe during the winter, so this wrap is just what I’ve been looking for! Of course, I couldn’t go through my weekend without my trusty felt fedora – it could be the fact my roots are awful because I haven’t been to the hair salon since August (whoops). Anyway, make sure to check out Bohme’s new arrivals and this similar patterned sweater, there are so many great pieces, including warm, cozy sweaters and cute dresses.

Also today is my little sister’s 21st birthday!!!!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAITLYN! I wish I could be celebrating with her, but sadly it is the first day of her finals week so she has to focus through Thursday! I will see her this coming weekend though and can’t wait to give her a big birthday hug, her gift and buy her a margarita, or two ;) LOVE YOU SISTER!
