Last Saturday, I hosted a holiday party at my apartment along with Ashley and Annalise. With garland and handmade wreaths delicately placed around the house, we sipped on spiced cider and gingerbread cookies with close friends. I really love hosting parties, mainly due to the planning and baking that precedes such events. There have been some minor accidents in parties past, such as my 1950s porcelain pink bathroom sink falling off the wall and shattering into a 1000 little pieces (free standing sinks are not seats for smooching sessions). Luckily, I avoided such catastrophes this year. And I got to put to use my 1960s bar cart, which usually sits neglected until holiday and birthday celebrations.
This 1960s babydoll watercolor dress is the first in our week long holiday dress series. I have quite a collection of fancy party dresses that come out only special occasions. It's rather funny that this party frock hasn't made its way on the blog since it is absolutely my favorite dress. The watercolor print, cut, and velvet bow make it a perfect holiday piece. And some vintage gold accessories make it soiree ready!
