Christmas Giveaway || Maddy James Angeline Dressing Gown



As you all know, I love incorporating glamour as much as possible, even when lounging at home.  Maddy James provides a beautiful alternative to t-shirts & yoga pants, and their stunning loungewear is for women of all ages and all shapes.  I recently had the pleasure of modeling for the new collection, and I was smitten with the Angeline Dressing Gown - here pictured in a lovely shade of powder blue.  Just in time for Christmas, Maddy James is kind enough to provide one lucky Chicago Chic reader with their very own Angeline Dressing Gown!  The winner will be able to choose between powder blue color or antique white.  I'm so happy for this opportunity to provide one of my amazing readers with a holiday gift as a way to say thank you for all your support.  I'm so grateful to have found such a wonderful community of glamour-loving vintage-obsessed friends to share this journey with me.  I have so many plans for the new year and some exciting things coming up, and for now let's celebrate with a Maddy James giveaway!  

The requirements are very very simple:

That's it, but for an *extra point* share the giveaway on your Facebook page!

The giveaway ends on Christmas day, and I'll announce the winner in my blog post following Christmas... Good Luck!

Blue Christmas || Voodoo Vixen 1940's Taffeta Dress

IMG_1731

As I'm sure you can tell, I find myself wearing so much red during the holiday season.  This year I've been searching for different colors to add to my wardrobe, with prints and fabrics that still have that holiday glamour feeling.  This 1940's style taffeta dress from Voodoo Vixen has the most gorgeous shade of blue and stunning vintage floral pattern.  With the elegant shine and unique shape, it is the perfect frock that I was searching for!  Chicago is all lit up with lights lining the streets, trees up in every hotel lobby, and I often find myself almost wishing we could leave up the decorations year-round... but then again, the anticipation is a big part of what makes it so special each year!

Cherries & Holly || Holiday Wreath and Festive Red

IMG_1862_2

Christmas is only 10 days away, and it's all happening too fast for me!  My favorite time of year is just flying by... but at least I know I'm savoring every moment.  This year I found the perfect wreath, the Oregon Fresh Holiday Wreath from Uncommon Goods, and it's amazing!  Each wreath is custom made, crafted from trimmed branches at a tree farm in Oregon!  Not only is the smell incredible, but the design is gorgeous... containing accents of pinecones, holly, juniper, and a red bow.  Even beyond Christmas, I plan to keep it up well into the new year!  December is moving fast but there is still some time for last minute gifts, and Uncommon Goods has some great options here, and stocking stuffers here.  Or perhaps, you might want to shop a bit for yourself from the unique items on this page.  Uncommon Goods is privately owned, featuring unique designs and handmade creations with a mission to support artists and designers, and in harmony with the environment.  Uncommon Goods is B Corp, using business to solve social and environmental issues which you can read about here.

We hung our holiday wreath above our original built-ins, which we use partly as our living room bar area.  My cherry top from Collectif is a new favorite.  Although it's sold out in red, it's available in black with polka dots and I love it just as much!
