When it came time to create a virtual holiday party with my blogger babes, Liz, Nina, and Hailey, I knew this was the time I really wanted to ramp up the glamour.
Each one of us have organized a party with our own theme and we are inviting you to party hop to all four, virtually! We will each be dawning fashions gifted from Yours Clothing to show the range of styles they have available for the holidays.
Liz of With Wonder & Whimsy is hosting a Black & White Dessert Party, Nina of CurvyMod is creating a Cocktail Potluck, Hailey of Discourse of a Divine Diva has a Cozy Game Night planned, and I am doing a 1940s Inspired Glam Outdoor Holiday Party. Oh, so swanky!I adore vintage home decor, music, fashion, and recipes. So as I browsed the Yours Clothing website to pick an appropriately themed look, I was not disappointed. In fact, I had a hard time narrowing down my options. I finally decided upon the Navy & Pink Floral Print Midi Dress with Ruched Waist Panel to coincide with my vintage glamour theme.Let me express to you how much I love this dress! It is body hugging without being too tight and it is extremely comfortable. The large scale bloom beauty is unlined everywhere except the bodice, which means the stretch is amazing. I didn’t even need to wear shape wear! Woohoo!!! The silhouette with its fitted to-the-elbow sleeves, angled ruching at the waist, and just below the knee fitted skirt bring that vintage 1940s feel while the textured floral fabric give it a modern twist.To add even more glamour, I added this luxe faux fur stole in gorgeous grey tones. It has a hook & eye but I opted to style it open. Since I live in a warmer climate here in Southern California, I thought I would take advantage of using this outdoor fireplace as the venue for this party of mine.Although it does not get freezing here, a light jacket would be needed to stay nice and cozy as the evening progresses. The Wine Waterfall Longline Crepe Jacket was the perfect addition to complete this holiday look. The unlined covering brings sophistication to this dressy outfit while providing a little warmth. It has a tie belt that is even beautiful when closed.I chose a vintage gold beaded party bag, rhinestone stretch bracelet, pink cocktail ring, and burgundy flats from my own closet to finish it off. I fixed my hair in a side sweep with loose curls to go along with the glam getup.Outfit Details

To decorate the outdoor area, loose draped twinkling lights define the party space while old fashioned paper streamers and horns are scattered around for guests to have fun with. A little bubbly can be found in an ice bucket adorned with pine sprigs and cranberries.The food table is lined with gold encrusted candle holders while chiffon cake, barbecue meatballs with colorful toothpicks, pigs in a blanket arranged in the shape of a wreath, and metallic pom poms on a stick grace each drink. As we dine on dessert and appetizers, Andrew Sisters Christmas music will be filling the air with cheer. Gathered around the flames of the fireplace, talk of what we are thankful of for the past year and what our plans are for 2016 will be bountiful. A bit of carefree dancing may ensue as well. Enjoying the company of friends and family in an oh, so festive way, this vintage soiree is sure to be remembered. Thank you for joining me at my Glam Outdoor Holiday Party and I wish you a Merry Christmas! And I want to extend a big thanks to Yours Clothing for giving me the dress, jacket, and stole. Now I know you are ready to head off to see my friends Liz, Nina, & Hailey, so say hello to them for me.
