Winter Evenings in Edwina…

So, let’s talk about Edwina! I’ve had my eyes on her since Halloween! It was a tricky decision back in October but eventually I chose to be a classy Kitty cat for Halloween and Edwina had to wait in the wings in anticipation of party season!

I decided to go for the Edwina Lace Dress in black for Christmas and New Year as I have a tendency to go for bright colours when thrift shopping and I leave myself without the LBD every woman needs in her wardrobe.

This dress is a compromise for me, it has the shape of the 50’s dresses I’m so fond of, whilst the lace back and plunging neckline give it a hint of sex appeal. A pinup’s ideal Little Black Dress.


I teamed the dress with my new red seamed, black stockings from What Katie Did (great for when you want a thicker denier stocking) and a red  petticoat I found on eBay, and of course my favourite red lipstick by Chanel (Rouge Allure – 104 Passion) – The injection of red meant I could embrace my love of coloured clothes and I just find red and black exudes classic glamour so easily.

However, I was a little heartbroken when I couldn’t find my vintage dress gloves, but actually the Accessorize ones I have on worked well because of the delicate bow detailing, and they’re also a bit warmer, perfect for this Antarctic weather we’re having.



Once I popped my pearls on and unleashed my pin curls and brushed them through, I grabbed my charity shop clutch bag and was ready for the night, and more importantly, my of bubbles.


If you need a party dress, I’d definitely make an appointment with Edwina. Don’t fret too much if you don’t have a petticoat, I posed a bit without it on, and as you can see the skirt is still a super shapely full circle with it's own net underskirt – so flattering on any waistline!

Speaking of which, mine will definitely be expanding with all the party food I intend on eating.

Happy Holidays x
