Holiday party retro cheer

These pictures are my way of spreading some retro holiday cheer to you. Is there any other kind? Whenever its time for me to attend a holiday party, I always want to paint my lips and nails red. Why is that? Maybe its my way of feeling the retro cheer. Let's start by wrapping some presents and inviting our guests... Will you help?



I love this holiday invitation. The pictures is so simple, classic and I can feel the holiday cheer through the minty martini or is it water? Honestly, I wouldn't know the difference after two glasses!

How San Francisco is this holiday button? I would love wearing it on my party clothes...

Just stunning...as you know this shade is one of my favorites, but it really stands out against the white and beading of her dress. And a blue background...be still my beating heart.

I took this picture of a San Francisco office building. I love the festive ornaments. Maybe we can have our holiday retro party here?

Is there such a thing as an art deco Christmas tree? What a gorgeous holiday ornament.



She must be very cold!



That was a lot of fun. I think I'll just wear this outfit to spread the holiday retro cheer. But I think she forgot her pants...can we call her? Comment below and tell me how would you dress retro for a party or which picture is your favorite. Happy Wednesday lovelies!
