The Christmas Vogue 1191


Here it is, pre turkey, pre eyelash application but post Christmas cocktail - which with hindsight was possibly the wrong order of doing things.

We had to get the bus to my friend's apartment for lunch and I felt so silly in the drag queen eyelashes I wore sunglasses, which looked almost as crazy. Ok maybe not....


Hope you all had a lovely time, we are winding down now but enjoying seeing England thrashing the Aussies at cricket!

Great dress. Nice to see the Aussies get a thrashing too. They're too full of themselves.

Erica B. said...

You look great! Fabulous for the holidays!

Gail said...

Ah you never know, if you can pull off drag queen eyelashes, we Aussies might just pull off the cricket!!

The eyelashes are the crowning glory of that outfit!

Beautiful dress and perfect for Christmas. Holidays are all about fun, so bat those eyelashes girl!

Jacquie said...

The dress is just fab - and still giggling at the eyelashes. I call myself an Aussie in most things, except when it comes to the Ashes - go the Poms! And cricket watching is a great accompaniment to sewing.

Audrey said...

Your dress looks lovely and just right for the holiday. I was wondering what the dress patten would look like made up in a solid color fabric. The draping looks terrific. What fun eyelashes!

Lindsay T said...

Fabulous, dahling! Love the dress, love the eyelashes. Simply marvelous.

JoanneM said...

Great dress. Eyelashes are a hoot!

Mazzygirl said...

Such a gorgeous dress! I want one too!
I probably should care that we're getting flogged in the cricket, but I really don't! The eyelashes are a bit funky, I have no idea how you get those things to stay on, I've never had any success with them, lordy knows I've tried! anyway, great outfit, & best of all, you can wear that dress again (did I mention I LUV it?!)

Gorgeous and fun!

The lashes totally crack me up! Love the dress though. :-)

Vicki said...

Don't mention the cricket! At least the torture is now over. On to the tennis I say :) Great Christmas dress and fun lashes. Hope Santa was kind to you.

Gorgeous dress--so incredibly flattering! I really must get around to that pattern, I have a deep magenta wool jersey earmarked for it. Love the lashes, too. What fun!

Amanda S. said...

Haha - I'm still working on my "Christmas" dress! Now it's just a red knit dress with no occasion attached. I'm glad you got yours done because it's just gorgeous!

sewabeginner said...
