Party season is almost upon us… YUS! There really is nothing better than getting all girly-fied with your besties and heading out for some drinks and of course some serious dancing.
But as y’all know, girly-fying myself is no easy task for a self confessed, sixties tomboy, so I took to Etsy, my one stop destination for all things vintage and handmade, and boy did they impress!
Boutique after boutique of independent sellers, means;
1. You”ll spend hours of your life hopping from store to store and revelling in the hand made and vintage beautifullness; trust me, I did, and these are some of my fave party pieces from Etsy that I am currently pining after, along with a homeware list as long as my arm, but thats for a different post.
2. You’ll end up leaving with a seriously unique piece or two, that you won’t find on anybody else, so no wardrobe dramz when you show up at your Christmas do… BONUS!
I chose this freaking marvellous hand made dress from Etsy Seller Violet House; the mix of textures, the sixties cut and of course the fact that this was tailor-made to fit, as, being a mere 5ft4, hem line is everything, and, just look, they got it bloody spot on!
I accessorised my look with some bad ass silver winklepickers from The Gothic Shoe Company; again totally handmade and now my go-to boots for both comfort and style! I’m already eyeing up a good few pairs from the store that you can see over on my Etsy edit page. And then finally throwing in the ultimate Almost Famous suede coat from September Girl Vintage and I am pretty much in Christmas party look heaven!
So there we have it, my first Christmas party look is a GO! And what a way to kick of the party season than with Etsy ey? Make sure you check out my gals Carms and Abbie’s blogs to find all the deets to their looks. I really hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for more party inspo very soon.
