Last Minute Christmas Glamour

"Christmas Eve Coat" in a wine shade of red, Harper's Bazaar, December 1938.
Surround yourself in glamour. Ladies Home Journal, December 1933. The wine dress with tiny muff and puffed shoulders reminds us of the dress Rhett makes Scarlett wear to Ashley's birthday party in Gone With the Wind (1939). Also a black and white dress with "cold shoulder" sleeves, and a red dress with peaked shoulders and low-V back.
"No night falls without the flare of lamé streaking through its hours," wrote Vouge, November 15, 1936. Dinner dresses above, left, of "tawny gold lamé, ends its pleated skirt just at the ankles. The wide-belted blouse bares your jeweled arms, and more lamé is twisted into a golden aureole (Henri Bendel). On the second siren, a jacket like those worn by the young blades of Dalmatia. It's of velvet, thick with gold braid, short as a bolero. In place of their velvet trousers, a slim black broadcloth evening dress."
Coats of 1936: Black worn over green and black worn over red.
Black and red with gold gowns. 1940.
Evening dresses, 1935.
Black, red, and green. Lilly Daché, 1939.
Over the top in green, with red, black and white accents. Cover of Vogue, September 1, 1939.
Some gala green ideas from Vogue, December 1, 1939. Green and purple was a very popular combination.
More green and purple, with blue. This is by Hattie Carnegie.
