Party Dress

MOTH the Grumpy Christmas Grinch reminded me last night I need to start thinking about a pretty new dress for Christmas Day lunch. The clock is ticking he said - he's right, so I'm onto it. I've had this gorgeous tear sheet image tucked away for years, & while I may be a little old for the puffed sleeves, Peter Pan collar & sash around the waist, these two cherubs look so sweet in their gorgeous party dresses!

  1. Beautiful photo Millie :)

    Bless the Grinch's heart! Have fun shopping!

  2. These two are adorable Millie.
    Perhaps your ensemble could be be white and airy, vs light and frothy.

    PS Good on you MOTH for being so considerate of your lovely wife's wardrobe needs.

  3. Don't they look gorgeous. It is not Christmas lunch I am worried about finding a dress for, but my brother's wedding this weekend. Dragging six kids around the packed shopping centre in not exactly conducive to making a considered purchase! Good luck with finding your perfect dress.

  4. Hi Millie,

    What darling little girls in sweet dresses.
    That is kind of Moth and I hope you have fun finding the perfect party dress.

  10. Oh,go for it Millie,
    I'm sure you would look gorgeous in one of these pretty little dresses. I will wear the other one.

    Sorry I haven't been over for a while, I'm still not quite sure what menapausal moment I was going through when I decided to open a shop. Hmmmmmmm it has certainly added 10 more hours to my 24 hour day.
    Sending lots of love from the Highlands,

  14. MOTH says the right thing sometimes doesn't he! I bought my Christmas top and white as opposed to the normal black and white! Being a rebel :)

  15. They are just beautiful. I have a similar tear sheet taken from the original Victoria magazine.
    You don't see little girls in dresses like this very often now, They all seem to want to look thirty at seven!!!
    Have a fabulous shopping trip!

  16. Moth can't be Too Grumpy Millie if he is Suggesting you go Shopping for a Party Dress...Have Fun.

  17. Oh Millie you are NOT too old for these charming dresses. Just add a wee knitted flower for irony and there you are.

  19. Yes but Millie,
    How often does a husband remind his wife she needs to go shopping for clothes? Yes we are alive and well and just a bit misplaced this year. Missed you and hope you enjoy the season and all those parties. Whew!
