Dear Santa: Vintage Party Dresses for the Holidays

Originally posted on Paper Mothball Vintage


The holiday season is once again dashing through the snow making its way upon us with the holly jolly delights of parties, and the chance to get dolled up in your vintage best. So deck the halls and roast your chestnuts, hang your back seamed stockings with care, and start shopping – time is running out to find that dress!

While I was in Texas for Thanksgiving, my sister was searching relentlessly for the perfect holiday party dress. Trying to find the right one can be a real hunt! Im still on the look out for her perfect sparkler. It made me realize I had been stashing my own wish list this year and wanted to share my personal favorites with you. This is not a sponsored post, but an opportunity for me to support the vintage community that so often supports me in return, and hopefully inspire you to find the perfect frock.

The above black dress can be found at Adored Vintage. Its the fabulous little black dress version of my Central Park in November dress.

A little Christmas come early while I was asking permission to share images, Adored Vintage is offering Paper Mothball Vintage Readers a 10% coupon for the whole month of February! Use code PAPERMOTH and get something sweet for your honey on the 14th.

These beauties ranging from vintage inspired, 1930s to 1950s can be found vertically listed from left to right, below:

Happy Holidays and Merry Hunting!
Thank you to all the stores for letting me share your treasures. xoxo

"I am mostly self taught using vintage sewing patterns. I create all my garment patterns and sew all my designs. I specialize in luxury fabrics and hand beading and embroidery, and occasionally create my own prints for fabrics. I take most of my own pictures and videos, working in both film and digital. As a model, I always try to bring the clothing to life. Every garment has its own story that it wants to tell. When I step into a dress, I step into being that girl."
