I guess my invitation was lost in the mail (ha, ha, ha), but that didn’t stop me from planning a very special outfit for the occasion…I even added my wedding tiara to complete the look that features the Miss Candyfloss Sacnite-Lee dressing gown I picked up last spring with the Platinum Jubilee in mind:
The tiara is the main accessory, but I also added my favorite pearls (of course!), crown earrings from Erstwilder, a pair of glittery Duchess bangles from Splendette, and the Royal Collection replica brooch I always pull out for events featuring the British monarchy:
My daughters also think that this would be the perfect Disney Bound of Queen Elsa, and they’re not wrong!
I also added my most sparkly shoes, for a regal look from head to toe!
I love that if I try hard enough (and am creative enough), I can pull together an outfit for any occasion from what I already have in my closet!
Time for a look at this year’s festive fashion, heavily influenced by the Arctic weather we’ve been having. The chill made warm clothing a must on Christmas Eve, so I added a cape and beret (and red tights), to my usual Christmas dress. I also added a Christmas Splendette stack, my favorite sparkly Christmas brooch, and equally sparkly silver shoes.
Even at home, I had to dress with the cold in mind, so I threw a cardigan on over my Miss Candyfloss dressing gown:
The faux fur collar on my cape is removable, so I changed up its look on Christmas Day. This time I wore a Rare Dirndl and my new Christmas apron, plus a flower crown that arrived just in time for Christmas. I accessorized with edelweiss, a brand-new Homes bracelet, and some Erstwilder brooches:
I kind of enjoyed having truly cold weather for Christmas, especially since it allowed me to dress a little differently this year!
We’re only a week away from the big Platinum Jubilee weekend! In honor of that auspicious event, I’m taking a look at an unbelievable piece that was inspired by another royal lady (Princess Grace), and makes me feel like a queen myself…the Sacnite-Lee dressing gown by Miss Candyfloss!
This is a one-of-a-kind piece that, while it shares the same general shape and style as my other Miss Candyfloss dressing gown, has been upgraded with the addition of sequins on the lace bodice (I love to sparkle!), and a fantastic ombre shading in the most lovely shades of blue:
How do you accessorize a dressing gown? Well I decided to play up the royal look with a Cinderella-inspired necklace, my Erstwilder crown earrings, and some sparkly hair pins:
Like my other dressing gown, I would definitely wear this out if I had a place fancy enough, but for now, it’s also perfect for watching Encanto on a Friday night! Or twirling around the house, because the skirt has an amazing spin!
I love how luxurious and special this gown is!
Now I have a dressing gown perfect for spring and summer, and another that’s just right for fall and winter…I’m glad to have all the seasons covered in elegant glamour!
Now that even Epiphany has come and gone, I’m taking a look back at my favorite festive fashions of the 2021 Christmas season. I picked my favorite styling of each Christmas piece I have in my wardrobe (four skirts, a dress, and a dirndl apron), plus a photo of how I accessorized each:
Also, two bonus pictures that don’t really fit anywhere else…the dressing gown I wore on Christmas Eve, and a playful shot of one of my new Christmas brooches on my overalls against a candy cane-inspired background:
As much as I’m looking forward to mixing up my fashion a bit more in the coming weeks, I’m really going to miss my Christmas prints until it’s time to pull them out again!
Time for a look at something completely different!
I have always admired ladies in old TV shows and movies who wore beautiful, glamorous dressing gowns. Anyone can wear a robe, but a gorgeous gown made of satin and lace? That was always the dream!
This spring, Miss Candyfloss offered a beautiful dressing gown in a few lovely pastels. Since it was a new and special item, it was extremely limited, both in sizes and quantity, and I wasn’t able to purchase one. But then they surprised me with something that wasn’t in the autumn/winter lookbook, the lovely Chantilly-Violette and Chantilly-Pine, which is the same dressing gown, but in beautiful autumnal shades of purple and green. To be honest, the purple was my first choice…it is my favorite color after all! But it sold out in a flash, and I was happy to get the gown at all. In the end, this green is stunning, and especially nice around the holidays!
This gown isn’t just beautiful, it’s also extraordinarily well made. My parcel had a mishap somewhere between Sweden and my home, and when it was delivered, it was torn open, part of the gown was actually exposed to the elements, and the invoice inside was literally shredded. I was terrified to even look at the gown, because I was sure the lace had to be ruined based on the condition of the package and the paper invoice. But is flawless, which has got to be due to how well it was constructed!
I’m especially looking forward to wearing this over the Christmas season!
I don’t think I’ve ever felt quite so glamorous!
I would also wear this outside of the house if I had a fancy enough event to attend. While it’s marketed as a dressing gown, it can also be worn as simply a gown…it isn’t too revealing and certainly doesn’t look like something that can be worn only around the house. I love a piece that’s both versatile and elegant, and makes my vintage glamour dreams come true!
