In case you guys need some holiday outfit inspiration, I thought I would share this classic ’40s inspired look.  One of my favorite eras. 

You know, what’s funny? I always say that I am not a fan of matchy-matchy but this is the second time that I wear a Voodoo Vixen outfit and I make it super matchy-matchy. 🙂 Accenting it with tons black and green accessories, it just kind of worked out that way. haha! If you’re wondering if this ’40s style dress is comfortable, well, it is – so much that I could probably go swing dancing in it. Um, if I actually knew how – ok, that’s one of my goals! Another quality I admire about the dress, is that it’s lined which is always a nice touch. ♥
It’s also dressy enough that I was able to wear it to a daytime holiday party.
For another occasion, I wanted a touch more glamour and drama so I switched it up with this vintage fur coat I had sittin’ in the back of my closet. I know, I know…fur is kind of a touchy subject. And I don’t really purchase it anymore, but there was a point in my life where I was hooked on collecting vintage furs…but I ‘ve been thinking that after a few more outfit posts, I will donate them all to Out of The Closet, The Goodwill or a women’s shelter.

Anyway, I love this dress and I hope you do too. 🙂 Voodoo Vixen was kind enough to provide me with a promo code to share with you all so that you may find your own party dress.
