Happy Holidays


‘Tis the season, ladies and gentlemen – the holiday season! Here at Vintage Tex, we’ve got everything you’ll need to get you through it from holiday party dresses and coats to keep you nice and cozy to special and unique gifts for everyone on your list!

First up, let’s get dressed for that holiday event you’ve got coming up – whether you prefer a more classic style or want something super fun and festive, we have options for everyone!

For something more classically glamorous, this ensemble is perfect. The base is a 1960s cocktail dress in a gorgeous chocolate brown. The cut of the bodice is especially unique and flattering and it comes with a matching held which is always a great find with vintage as things like belts and other attachments tend to get separated from their pieces over the years. The real star of this look, however, is the amazing 1970s fur coat. Between the super luxurious mink fur and the buttery soft leather both in a lovely taupe-y grey tone, you’ll definitely be warm and you’ll also look amazing! Allow the coat to remain the star by keeping your accessories simple and topping off your look with a strange of pearls, carry on the classic vibes with a simple pair of pumps or some brown knee high boots for a bit of a cooler, more modern feel, and you’re good to go!

This next party-ready outfit is super fun and festive – as promised – without the typical tacky Christmas sweater. The metallic silver thread running through the bodice of this adorable dress just makes it that much more special! From the bright and cheery shade of green, to the sheer, puffy sleeves topped off with wide green cuffs, to the super trendy just-below-the-knee hemline, it definitely gets our Vintage Tex holiday seal of approval! Again, this dress has held onto its matching belt for over 40 years which is pretty incredible! In keeping with the cute and quirky feel of this outfit, pair it with a fun 1970s collar style necklace like this one by Napier, one of the first modern corporations in the United States which began producing jewelry pieces all the way back in 1920! You could always keep your shoes tame and go for a simple 60s block heel as shown here, or you can really pump up those vintage vibes and pull on a pair of white gogo boots!

Now you don’t wanna show up to a gift exchange empty handed, but you also don’t wanna show up with the same gift as someone else or give anyone anything they’ve already got at home…so what do you do? You shop vintage, of course! We’ve got everything from hats and handbags to scarves, gloves, jewelry, even ties and cufflinks for the gentlemen in your life!

 This handbag and pair of gloves would make an adorable gift set, or try adding some extra sweetness by filling the handbag up with chocolates and other candy for a special surprise!

Instead of giving a simple strand of ivory pearls which many women already have in their jewelry collections, go for a fun twist on a classic with one of these variations!

For a cozy gift, go for a hat and scarf combo! We have so many different styles, colors, shapes, and sizes to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect pair!

 

Guys, we didn’t forget about you! For all the fellas in your life, we’ve got a great selection of ties – from more classic patterns like stripes to funkier ones like this super cool peacock print – as well as cufflinks, many of which can be personalized with an engraving for a truly personal touch!
