The Vintage LBD

It’s holiday party season! What better way to celebrate than by finding a really great deal on a gorgeous vintage little black dress (LBD) and pairing it with some other great vintage finds. I’m a huge fan of less is more when it comes to formal attire so for this post I paired two of my FAVORITE little black dresses from Beulah Louise Vintage with some really classy black and winter-white accessories. My favorite is the simple long black velour dress which screams 90s. It’s really hard to capture in a photograph how great this dress is. It’s very comfy, stretchy, and flattering on any shape. It fit me (I’m a size 6) and made my butt look fabulous. Plus the velour adds that extra pizazz it needs to transition into formal wear. Throw in some chandelier earrings, a statement ring, black stilettos, and a retro black and white clutch and you have the perfect holiday party outfit. The 70s does 20s fringe flapper dress is also a great option for those ladies who want to show off a little leg or see dancing in their future. It’s also a great example of the Great Gatsby Style that is all the rage right now. All of these items can be found on Etsy, links are provided below. Black & White #2

Vintage Inspired Island Getaway

Regardless if you’re one of the lucky few who already live in a warm climate town, or you’re planning a holiday getaway to somewhere sunny, vintage island inspired clothing is an awesome way to supplement your wardrobe for a special occasion. I’ve paired together two great straight-from-the-beach looks that will transition into an evening of drinking and dining, because sometimes the hardest part about vacation is putting down your Mai Tai long enough to change clothes.

The focal point of this post is the two 1960’s Royal Hawaiian dresses that are currently located in the Beulah Louise Vintage shop. Royal Hawaiian was a clothing manufacturer based out of Honolulu, HI that got it’s start in 1937 and specialized in tropical print clothing.The royal blue one is estimated to be a modern size small and the red is estimated to be a modern size medium. Both have elastic waist bands for all that extra vacation eating, flutter sleeves, and are made of a lightweight synthetic fabric, which make them ideal for any Island Getaway. I paired them both with vintage swimsuits and really fun vibrant accessories.
