Dressing for the Holidays – part 1

I would say that by now, almost EVERY store I go into has some sort of Christmas tunes tweeting from their stereos.  And while that still does not do anything for me and I pity the store clerks who had to listen to this music for the last four weeks, I must admit that I DO feel kind of festive these days.  I have seen beautifully decorated trees in my friends houses, we had had an arctic cold front come through, I baked cookies, held a Holiday market and bought some gifts.  There is a (good) chocolate Advent Calendar in my house and I am having fun creating an online one for my friends.

So, it is about time to think about the party dresses.

My first installment shall be about some outfits that would look good at any party.

This dress is by Kersh, is knee-length, looks just darling – and will work even after the holidays when put over a pair of jeans.

A delicate velvet shift dress by Anni Kuan, covered by a red cardigan by Armand&Alba.

Folklore stitch blouse by Hazel combined with Anni Kuan’s black ‘fuzz’ skirt.  Great also separately.

A classic, vintage inspired, body-hugging dress, also by Kersh.  Length below the knee.

This top is by Hazel, has a wide scoop neck and will go with slacks or a long skirt.

To commemorate the spirit, I am wearing a green/red plaid skirt today, red sweater and tights and green boots!


The Greek theme

Now that I have finally caught up and straightened out the store, entered receipts, paid bills and looked at all the new merchandise that came in during my absence – I remember something I heard on the radio.  The piece was about Michelle Obama, her fashion style and … Greece.  I cannot recall the exact wording but something was said to the effect that dresses and fashion has a Greek theme to them this summer.  Maybe Ms. Obama was wearing something to that effect and the media caught on.  While we all know that fashion repeats itself and certain influences show up in the designs – I was not aware of Greece when picking out my summer fashions.

Well – what do you know – that Greek ‘theme’ stuck with me, and sure enough, I find some Greek-inspired pieces among the new orders that came in.


Anni Kuan calls this dress the ‘Grecian’.  The neckline and the fall of this jersey dress certainly does it justice.


This one is by Press and has the same simple lines – a high bust and simple hanging skirt.


And here is the ultimate European fashion:  a Maxi dress.  I did see a lot of those in the shop windows in Europe and women wearing them.  While I admit that it might not be a good office dress – it will make the best for weekends and garden parties.  EVERY woman will look great in this.  The color combination is also perfect:  white/ yellow/gray. And did I mention pockets?  It should sell itself just for the pockets.

And here this SkunkFunk top:


It does not get more greek-ish.  On a side note:  all of these styles will hide certain unwanted rolls in different places.

So as for my store – I am all with Michelle Obama:  Greek rocks.


I can take a breath now

After having done it again, I can say that I am almost caught up with my life.  By having done it again, I mean that I was sooo wrong about the departure time of our flight home.  Again.  Off by a whole day.  If it wasn’t my trademark, I would cry.

Back to the store.  Entered receipts.  Paid bills.  Rearranged the socks.  NEW socks have arrived – yeah!  And also a new line – HAZEL.  I am thrilled.  Pretty pieces, wearable all by themselves.  I spent part of the day photographing all the new items.  How I love all the internet options!  Here you go:
