Holiday Icons

My recent reading is all about landmarks of style.* My holiday wardrobe shall contain nothing less! Let’s see what’s on JV’s list of festive essentials.

The Velvet Dress: Silk velvet wraps you in luxury and dances you out the door. Make a date with Olivia Von Halle’s Velvet Issa slip dress in rich teal velvet matched to a beguiling botanical print. 

The Sheer Black Negligee: Imagine unfurling it from its gift box. A moment to remember. Consider the Gilda & Pearl All That Glitters Jacket in black silk chiffon with sheer embroidered accents at shoulders.  

The Gala Silk Pajamas: Holiday albums stacked sky-high, you the host and DJ. Turn up the volume in Olivia Von Halle’s Lila Havana Silk Pajamas. Don’t forget the fancy earrings.   

The Multiples: Mom would approve. Give practical stacks of pretty stockings from Gerbe and stretchy camisoles from Dana Pisarra.

The Sparkle: Catch the candlelight with Gilda & Pearl’s Melitza sheer black and gold lace in ankle-length robe and gown.     

The Holiday Blouse: To the rescue, the cocktail top that looks great with skinny black pants and highest heels. Cadolle’s fabulous beaded Olivia Ravage Top is there for you. Ready in a minute, darling.

The Elegant Robe: Save some time for yourself. Enjoy a long afternoon of pampering in Olivia Von Halle’s Anoushka Silk Robe in black with white piping. Tailored torso, twirly skirt.

The Escape Dress: the Klements Volcano Patti Dress packs in a moment and whisks you off to January sunshine. 

Let these classics simplify your life as they add the necessary zest. Happy holidays from Jane’s Vanity!
