Winter Plaid

Unique Vintage 1950s Style Grey Plaid Button Up Swing Dress

Today is Christmas Eve and I'm kind of sad about it.  I feel like I didn't do enough "Christmas-inspired" activities this year.  Because of my new job and Bianca starting school, we didn't have time to see Disneyland during their holiday time, visit Santa, or send out Christmas cards.  This year kind of feels like a massive fail.  Luckily, we still have today and tomorrow to jam in as much as we can!  This Unique Vintage dress feels really festive without being holiday restrictive and I can't get enough of it.  It really matched well with the holiday decor at my local historical society, which I happen to visit about once or twice a month.  The old homes (and this church) have a super creepy aura around them and I love it.

This plaid dress is made from a lightweight woven cotton and features a large tie at the neckline, button front closure, short sleeves, and a full gathered skirt with hidden side pockets.  I'm wearing my usual Unique Vintage size small and it definitely fits perfect in the bust.  The waist is quite big, but it's not noticeable when I add a belt.  I can't lift my arms all the way up when I wear this dress, but the sleeves are otherwise pretty functional.  I really love this dress and I hope they make more versions (especially solids and stripes) in the new year!

Tomorrow is my birthday and unlike other people in their 30's, I'm quite excited!  While aging isn't the most fun thing in the world, the confidence I've gained in myself is worth the ridiculous skincare regimens I now have to follow.  I'm looking forward to spending it with my family and enjoying a nice dinner with the people I love.  Not gonna lie, I'm also excited to open my presents from Kevin.  I didn't give him a list this year and I'm dying to know what he got me!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

xoxo
