Ho ho ho.  It's that time! Everyone is putting on their favorite dresses, unpacking their velvets and re-visiting sequins and shimmer.  But what happens when you break the bank buying a dress from your favorite store only to find that your co-worker bought the same one and is wearing it to the same party?Good Cheer suddenly becomes embarrassment The answer might be to consider buying vintage for your next special event! Whether you are going to a Christmas cookie party, an office holiday party or a black tie holiday gala, you can find something vintage to wear that fits right in to your contemporary lifestyle.

Whenever I go to a holiday party, people always want to know where I got my dress - when I tell them it's vintage, they are usually shocked.  I think they are expecting vintage to look "VINTAGE" and are amazed that it actually can look quite contemporary if worn right.

There might be times, however, that you want to add some fun, obviously vintage, elements to your holiday ensemble - like opera gloves, vintage jewelry or a vintage handbag.  If you don't over-do the accessories and keep it simple, you can still look modern, elegant and sophisticated in a vintage dress.
