dress: vintage New Bohemia on South Congress // coat: old Papaya // shoes: thrifted
Over the summer, I went on a little thrifting mission to find head scarves. While I was out, I popped into a little shop on South Congress called New Bohemia, just to see if they had anything I couldn’t live without. And then they did. I walked right up to her and my heart felt like it met its soulmate. I knew she was going to come home with me.
I got all gussied up for a night out to dinner with Dago after work. Long story short, the Time Warner guy was supposed to show up at 5pm and didn’t come til 11:30pm, so we never got to go. My pretty new dress didn’t even get to see the outside of my apartment!
I wanted her first time out to be special, so I decided maybe I’d save her for the holidays. I’ve always wanted a little red holiday dress, so why not a perfectly ’60s frock? Also, it took at least this many months to figure out what shoes to wear with her! I defaulted to my favorite platinum glitter flats, but I’m thinking she really needs a pair of emerald suede or velvet shoes. What do you think?
I ended up wearing her to my agency’s holiday party. In case there were any doubt, she was a hit! Hopefully I have another chance to wear her this season, and maybe I’ll even find a pair of shoes to match.
What are you wearing to holiday parties this season?
