Winding Down for Christmas

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Here at Retro Chick HQ I’m winding down a little for Christmas.

It’s time to get into the festive spirit (Gin? Vodka? Whisky?), deck the halls and relax a little. The Christmas Stocking is in the post to the lucky winner of the giveaway and I’m planning on doing some frantic exercise in an attempt to minimise the mince pie damage so I can sit down in the 1950s wiggle dress I plan to wear on New Years Eve.

I still have Christmas presents to buy, so sensible shoes for a walk (slide?) into town are in order this afternoon, and I’ll still be heading off to the Post Office right up until it shuts on Christmas Eve, so if you’re looking for a last minute New Years Eve party frock there’s still a chance it’ll make it!

In the mean time I’ve been collecting vintage Christmas photos from around the web so I’ll leave you with a bit of festive spirit to be getting on with.

I can’t remember where I found all these I’m afraid so sorry for lack of credit!

    I’ll have one of each please, and a baileys on the side.

    I have been winding down since the weekend as I’ve been a bit poorly. On the plus side, so has Lord Cherry, and he has lost his voice πŸ˜‰ I think this is an excellent reason to prevent him playing call of duty world at war, as we all know that finger over exertion makes sore throats much worse.

    On a seperate note that Santa mask is a little creepy…! x

    I just love those over-the-top sexy lace stockings and lingerie. I have some myself but would be kind of embarrassed to wear it for a man. It’s SO oh-la-la.
