The Twelve Days of Christmas Sweaters: On the Tenth Day...

On the Tenth Day of Christmas Sweaters,
Santa gave to me--
The French word for "Christmas"…

…lots of red poinsettias...
…trees and trees and trees...
European Santas...

a festive beaded vest… 
a classy Christmas tree!

a sequin Santa Claus...
…beaded holly leaves...
…knit poinsettias...
…and a white, sequined icicle frieze!

I really hate flash, but today's such a gross, overcast day, I had no choice.  This is one of those sweaters I'm unashamed to say I'll be wearing again, once I have a tad more choice about what to wear it with!  It has such a great 40s shape to it, I think it'd look great with a skirt, pumps, and a 40s updo.

Flash is the worst.  But check out those shoulders!


  1. This one is my new favorite!! It is amazing!!


    1. Thank you so much! I forgot to mention, I found this at the Brooklyn Flea in the middle of the summer, looking sad and unloved. Once I washed and laid it out, it took on this killer form, and I realized what a great silhouette it has. I had no idea, it just looked like your average, odd Christmas sweater. I'm so excited to wear it again soon!

  2. You have quite a collection. So festive! In response to your asking about vintage events, I post the things that happen regularly in the events section of my blog, but I'm going to start doing a weekly round up of everything happening in the city, so be on the lookout for that. As always, thanks for stopping by!

  3. Just have to say how much I have LOVED all the Christmas jumpers over the last few weeks. It's got me in the Christmas mood and I am very impressed with all the planning that has gone into the piece. Still love the holly leaves and the white one you started with the best. Happy Christmas Eve. x

  4. Okay, I'll admit that I do love this one! It's great how the 1980s designers took inspiration from the 40s and turned it on its head!
