Vintage Tex Holiday Collection 2016


Hello everybody! I’m back with another holiday blog post! This time, I’m featuring some of the items from our holiday collection. We released these pieces along with tons of other new items at our holiday open house on November 30th! If you weren’t able to make it to the event, don’t worry! We’ve still got everything you’ll need to create your perfect holiday outfit – whether that’s something more casual and comfy for opening presents on Christmas morning (and then eating twice your weight in Christmas cookies) or something glitzy and glamorous for your New Year’s Eve party.

The first casual look I’ve put together is a combination of 50s and 60s pieces. I’ve kept the top half on the more simple side with a tan loopy knit cardigan over a slightly cropped black sleeveless top tucked into the focus of the look – a lovely little plaid pencil skirt! I’ve topped it with a cute red beret and some red beads to match the red in our skirt and added some brown leather loafers to finish it off, but a pair of boots would look great too! You could also add a pair of tights for some extra warmth if needed.

This next merry and bright outfit is so 60s and so adorable. The combination of this bright green cable knit cardigan with these bright red wool shorts (how cute are they?) and white sleeveless top with little red polka dots is the perfect amount of festive. I’ve added my signature cluster of brooches to the sweater and paired it with those same brown leather flats from the last look. Again, I would put some tights on for an extra layer of warmth (I actually own a pair of green tights that I’ve got in mind in particular) and I might even take it one step further and switch out the brown leather flats for some red shoes! You can never have too much Christmas spirit, am I right?

Now, onto the fancier side of our holiday collection! The first party-ready ensemble I’ve styled is a golden champagne-y furry metallic brocade-y dream straight out of the 1960s! You’ll look so cool in this cocktail dress you might need to warm up – I think this incredible curly lambswool coat with mink fur trim will do the trick! Pearls and gloves make for the ultimate classy pairing of accessories, and then all you’ll need is a nice pair of heels and a handbag to fit your phone, lipstick, and other necessities in, and you’re ready to go!

Last but not least, this luxurious mixture of 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s pieces. The base of this look is the epitome of the perfect little black dress. The shape is so flattering, there’s a beautiful wide belt cinching in the waist, and the skirt flares out into big, fluffy, pleated layers of chiffon, perfect for spinning and twirling on the dance floor ’til the clock strikes midnight. The coat on top is quite a showstopper as well, made up of the softest chocolate brown mink fur, and we just so happen to have a mink fur beret in the exact same color – such a glamorous set! Keeping it classy again I’ve added another strand of pearls and pair of gloves, and completed it with some simple black patent leather heels.

And voila! Four outfits perfect for all of your holiday events, from comfy and cozy to glitzy and glamorous! Did you like them? Well, there’s plenty more where these came from!
