Three Top Picks:: A Vintage-Inspired Holiday

The energy and joy of the holidays is upon us and I trust you're all basking in the glow of early December's holiday spirit as much as I am!

With only a few weekends left before Christmas, no doubt your social calendar is growing increasingly full with parties and fetes and gatherings with loved ones to celebrate the season. And, of course, this requires a few new ensembles for every engagement, right?

While I will forever adore the little black dress for its simplicity and timelessness, sometimes a girl's got to mix it up and give homage to the greatness of the past and its classic, radiant style.

1 - Gold sequined vintage sheath dress with delicate inlay. The style is incredibly feminine and drapes beautifully, while the addition of the black collar lends an extra element of sophistication and refinement. This Burberry dress has a similarly glowing and gorgeous golden feel to it.

2 - A low-slung chignon is never, ever, ever flawless and gorgeous. Paired with the perfect red lip (I'd recommend MAC's Viva Glam 1 lipstick), you'll be the talk of the party.

3 - My Old Mine Cut diamond ring is the epitome of radiant, sparkling, vintage style! One of the earliest cuts used for engagement rings, Old Mine Cut diamonds were all cut individually by hand. While modern diamonds are cut with lasers to specific specifications in mass quantities, Old Mine Cuts are all truly unique and one-of-a-kind. These vintage diamonds are very rare and very difficult to find. This particular ring here is so original that it's already sold (as of today!) and no other quite like it currently exists. That said, I can keep my eyes open for another Old Mine Cut and create a new ring in the future.

Happy vintage-style holidays!
