A Very Vintage Christmas - Like Honey

A Very Vintage Christmas

If you've been here for any amount of time, you'll know my love of vintage style runs deep. I've been wearing vintage and vintage inspired clothing and accessories for a long time, even sometimes donning vintage inspired makeup looks, but have never been able to perfect a vintage hairstyle! It took a few tries and a little help from some of my favorite YouTubers (see Laci Fay The Vintage Girl Next Door, Rachel Maksy, and The Eyre Effect), but today we made it happen! They're far from perfect yet, but I'm proud of myself for not giving up on it midway through like I used to, and I feel like the hair really completes the vintage vibes of this festive outfit! What do you think?

So this plaid top? It's actually a dress! You may remember it from this festive outfit last year, where I wore it two ways! I think this may be my new favorite way to wear it now! Layering a dress under a skirt is a great way to add a little extra modesty (I feel like this dress is a little too short and therefore don't wear it as often as I'd like), plus a bit of extra warmth!

Speaking of skirts, I've been on a skirt buying kick and this red beauty is going to be such a wonderful year round staple! From Christmas and Valentines to Fourth of July and everyday wear, red is a fantastic color to have in your vintage wardrobe arsenal. Even if you don't love the retro styles, a red skirt will go with so much and this cut is a timeless, classic option for day wear or office wear. If you do want to up the vintage ante even more, you could definitely add a fluffy crinoline to this skirt! Unique Vintage has lots of options for vintage inspired undergarments.




Since we're on the topic of layers, let me introduce you to my favorite "new" coat! This 100% Cashmere and real mink collar peacoat is a 1960s dream! I actually scored it over the summer while on vacation in Houston, Texas and couldn't be more excited to finally take it for a spin! The neutral color is exactly what I wanted and I couldn't believe the deal I got on it: $60! All it needed was one button fixed and a section of the satin lining reinforced which were super quick and easy fixes. A modern cashmere coat, even with faux fur, would go for hundreds of dollars, so to say it was a steal is an understatement! Vintage items like this are a worthwhile investment if you're willing to put in a little effort for repairs (or have a great tailor) that will last you for years to come!

How do you feel about vintage fashion? Do you ever go thrifting for your clothes and accessories? I live for a good deal and would love to hear about your favorite find!

  1. Perfect choice!!! This sweater dress looks so elegant on you. sweaters are such a vibrant color and attractive too. Other thing that attracts me the most is the design. Perfect design makes the superb combination. For perfect shape, right size of bras plays an important role. So do try Sexy bras them and flaunt yourself freely.

  2. Wow! I just love your fashion style. You are looking so beautiful in these pictures. Thanks for sharing this amazing post. This red dress looks so elegant on you. Fashion is a popular aesthetic in a certain time and context and you truly have a good taste of fashion and style selection. I'm a jewelry lover and I'll definitely try this look with my nose piercing jewelry. In these days Nose Piercing is a huge trend. Thanks.
