guest post: teacup vintage on dressing for december

Hey lovelies!

Today, the wonderful gals of Teacup Vintage are takin’ over the blog. I’m so excited that they tackled a conundrum we Minnesota girls face annually: Dressing cute when it’s -20 outside. As expected, they came up with some super adorable looks for all kinds of holiday situations. If I had it my way, I’d be cozying up to a roaring fire in look #3 every night now through March.
I hope you all enjoy it, too!

Dressing for December, Outfits & Inspiration

In the winter wonderland of December, we want outfits that say cozy with style. Personally, we tend to mix vintage and modern clothing, with lots of feminine details that add a touch of softness (think ruffles, pearly buttons, fur, velvet, and silk) thrown in for good measure. Since the Mighty Swell sale is just around the corner, we pulled pieces from our winter collection to put together looks for holiday style inspiration. Find these Teacup Vintage pieces and more at Tarnish & Gold this weekend.

Look #1: Under the Mistletoe


Classic colors, red and black, can be played up with a multitude of textures. This look is ladylike and classy with a hint of sex appeal (you choose how high to button it up): a red ruffled polka-dotted blouse paired with a black velvet high-waisted skirt, black tights, and lace-up heels. Add another dimension with a multicolored floral clutch.

Look #2: Date at the Ice Rink


Winter dates can be fun and stylish with the right outerwear. Vintage coats are unique and always in style: this one is an ivory wool blend with pearly brown buttons and a belted waist. Top off the look with soft gloves, a cream muff with brown velvet lining, cable knit tights, and ice skates of course!

Look #3: Sipping Cocoa by the Fire


This outfit says “cuddle me” and is so cozy and cute. We are loving novelty sweaters this season, especially those featuring animals. This look features an oversized sweater with two puppies in love, jeans tucked into cream stockings, with tall brown woven leather boots. Complete the look with a large vintage ivory handbag. Extra marshmallows please!

Look #4: As the Ball Drops


On New Year’s Eve, anything goes. We wanted to sparkle it up so we paired a lovely black 50’s party dress with gold tights, a black sequined head wrap, a small metallic handbag, and heels. We love mixing and matching metal tones with a black base piece. So fun, easy, and adds an extra splash of fanciness to a look.

Check the Teacup Vintage blog for more style inspiration, we will be updating it regularly!
