One of my new year resolutions was to invest more in true vintage pieces. Although I didn’t buy many original pieces from the 40s to 50s I bought some very special ones like the sparkling whool dress from my latest outfit post. Now, I want to welcome the new year in another breathtaking 50s dress.

A glamorous 50s Dress for New Year’s Eve and special Occasions

The couture dress is by Victoria Royal Ltd. and embroidered with many sequins. Especially the sparkling off-shoulder top is a real show-stopper. If you have a second look at it, you will be surprised by all the amazing details the dress has. There is a sequined underskirt which shows up wonderfully when the wearer is moving.

The 50s dress is from the private collection of the shop owner of Maison Chi Chi Vintage and is therefore now longer availble. On Etsy, however, there are some wonderful Victoria Royal Ltd. garments online.

Such an eye-catching dress doesn’t need a lot of accessories so I only chose sparkling earrings and a classy pearl bracelet. Stockings by Secrets in Lace and black pumps finish this glamorous 50s look.

Hairstyling tips for off-shoulder Dresses

Off-shoulder dresses look even better if the hair is worn in an elegant updo. A perfect choice is a huge but simple bun. For this, I use a big hair donut.

After all the reds and golds during Christmas time I now want some fresh colours. This is why I used flattering pink and rose shades on my eyes and lips.

We took the photos in beautiful Füssen. This city in the very south of Germany was also the location for my Audrey Hepburn post.

Now, I wish you a wonderful New Year’s Eve party and a lovely start into the next year!

PS: I don’t have new year resolutions for 2017, but I guess buying more true vintage pieces is something I can do again next year. 😉

  2. I’m a bit late with my comment because I’ve been away and semi-offline, but I have to comment on this utterly beautiful dress. It really is stunning, and a perfect fit and shape on you. I also really liked the post with the red dress. Sorry it’s so cold for you – it’s going to get colder in London by the end of the week but nothing like what you are having. Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you so much Karen!
      I hope you had a wonderful time and new year! It’s always good to be offline every now and then. I should try to do this more often. 😉
      I guess the coldest days are over here in Germany, we had about -20°C the last few days, now it’s getting a bit “warmer”.
