vera-ellen-3Merry Christmas!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it also happens to be “Pink Wednesday!”  We’ve found it hard in the past to come up with pink outfits for the holiday season, but while our mom was watching White Christmas earlier this month, we realized there was a perfect rose-colored dress for December 25th!  Vera Ellen dances with Danny Kaye in the 1954 film in a stunning pale pink chiffon frock.  Thevera-ellen-5 dressvera-ellen-4 has sequined details, really cute matching shoes, but the full skirt is just perfect for dance number she performs, which reminded us of Liesl’s famous dress in The Sound of Music.  It’s no surprise here, the lovely outfit was created by famous 20th century costume designer, Edith Head.  Another blogger whose site is called Ip & Audrey put it perfectly when she said Ellen looks “like a cream-puffed sugar plum fairy!”  Here’s hoping you have a wonderful Christmas! <3vera-ellen-6
