Cocktail Party

The other night I attended a blogger cocktail party, and it was so super lovely. I adore any excuse to get really dressed up. I met some lovely new blogging ladies and I can't wait for us all to get together again.


 I bought this dress over a year ago and had never taken it out for a spin, so I was so excited to be able to wear it. Even though it was made in the 70's I think it has a lovely look of the 40's about it.

  
70's dress flash backs
50's fur coat my grandmothers
shoes not sure
pearl necklace gift from my father
30's bracelet flea market

Please excuse the odd look of these pictures they were taken inside at night so I worked with what I had.

I hope you all have been having a fabulous week!

xo,
Em

  7. Haha, one thing we talked about that night at the party was how all of us have bad pictures lately because winter lighting sucks. :) I was disappointed that I didn't get to talk to you that night; Keith and I got there a little later than most. I saw you in the kitchen, and I thought She looks like a movie star. What an amazing dress! And then you were gone. Oh well, next time?

  10. You look divine! That cropped fur coat is so lovely and the dress is such a beautiful colour, I love the sheen the fabric has to it! You're so lucky to have blog events to attend, I'm fairly certain there are no bloggers where I live :P

  12. You look absolutely stunning. This dress was made for your bombshell curves. Glad to see you finally let this bad boy out to see the light of day. I would love to attend a blogger cocktail party. It involves two of my favorite things...drinking and socializing!

  14. I love how you've used pieces from across the decades and yet it all works (stitching time together, you're a magician!!). I love your hair styling. I haven't styled my hair in faux bangs in about 8 months. And I really really want to start wearing my hair like it again.

    1. Thank you! Oh it's fine, I almost listed it in what I was wearing haha. It's a vintage strapless bullet bra. The only bullet bras that I find that really fit me well are usually vintage.

    2. Yeah, it almost looks like a 60s bullet bra because it's not super pointy. I really like it. It's so hard to find good bras!

  16. I love it!I actually have a few 70s pieces that I think look 40s - there were some definite influences.

  22. How immensely stylish, elegant and drop-dead gorgeous! I completely agree that this dress smacks of the 40s, and all the more so when it's accessorized and partnered with the perfect vintage hairstyle, as you have done here. Stunning cocktail party look, dear Emma!

  24. What a stunning ensemble! The fur coat is gorgeous. I love the idea of a blogger cocktail party... I wish the bloggers around here were a little more sociable or easier to find!

  25. The dress is amazing! I love 70s-does-40s clothes. Often look just as lovely and they can handle a bit more wear and tear than the 40s articles! You look absolutely fabulous in it x

  35. Oh, how gorgeous. Love you in that dress!

  36. So gorgeous! In just glancing at these pics, I first thought they *were* vintage--that's how convincing the look is. I thought you were going to follow it up with something along the lines of '...and I got the inspiration for my look from this vintage magazine' or something!
