"Sunday Runway, Holiday Style . . . "

All dressed up - with somewhere to go . . . .



Greetings,

Since one can not live by Holiday Decorating Contests alone . . . I thought we'd take a little break from prizes and judges - and talk about clothes!  These next few weeks are most likely jammed packed parties and merriment abounding.   So we need a little velvet.  A little tartan. A bow tie or two.  And plenty of perfect holiday style.

Enjoy . . . .

Some vintage fabulousness . . . 

I simply love this image . . . 
Tied in tartan . . .

And some aubergine velvet could work for New Year's Eve too . . .

Ask Hutton Wilkinson if you can borrow his velvet dinner jacket he wore to our daughter Ella's deb party in 1987!! (He and Tony Duquette did the decorations.....Michael Carney did the music....! In Pasadena!!!) quite remarkable! How much do you know about Pasadena?)

Hutton still has it; it still fits him! And you will love it!!

(I think you are too tall for it.....but you could take pictures of it!)

Hutton has a portrait in some attic that is aging....because he is not!!!

fab post! If I can find myself in the cutest long plaid skirt in 1972 I will send it!
I cannot enter the contest! We are on vacation in Rancho Santa Fe....and won't be home in time to sending our live tree.....and our antique toile Christmas stockings.....but I will send them anyway!

Genius; my friend buys fragments of 18th century toile....and makes small things with them (especially loving the hand-sewn patches)!

Now that is "green"!
I will send some pictures!
