As we approach the holiday season, the day-to-day winter look just won’t do. Statement coats, perfectly darted cocktail dresses, and a proper scarf will make or break you on the holiday party circuit. Luckily, Xtabay Vintage Boutique owner Liz Gross is here to help. Gross rounded up some of the gotta-have-it pieces currently on the floor at her SE Clinton St shop worthy of combatting any winter style doldrums:
"Vintage fire engine red Burberry’s trench coat, a time tested wardrobe staple. Never out of style and 100% practical in Oregon. The bright red makes it especially fun for the Holiday season."
"The perfect 1950’s holiday party dress! I love plaid and this little taffeta interpretation is festive and flirty! A sure-fire way to be the cutest at the office party."
60s Leopard Trench
"In my book, leopard is a neutral. This fabulous 1960’s leopard raincoat from Saks Fifth Avenue is one of my favorites in the shop right now. It is the coat that will get you the most compliments, I'll guarantee it."
70s Missoni Dress
"OMG. This 1970’s Missoni knit dress paired with a 1950’s copper belt by Renoir was one of my favorite looks this fall. It spent a day or two in the shop window before a very chic out-of-towner came in and snatched it all up. Vintage, yet modern and chic and...sold."
70s Chloe Coat
"1970’s Chloe wool princess coat in Merlot. This coat caused a firestorm when I posted a picture of it on instagram. By the way, you should really follow us on instagram :) #soldinseconds"
60s Party Dress
"I love this early 1960’s gold brocade party dress with falling leaves print. Paired with pearls and one of our fur wraps it is so lovely. The perfect things again to wear to a holiday party, winter wedding, or charity function."
