The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to spread cheer and nostalgia than by donning attire that harks back to the charming eras of the 1950s and 1960s? At Crazy4MeStyle, we’re excited to unveil our exclusive collection of festive attire, inspired by the iconic vintage items that have captivated hearts for generations.
Vintage Elegance Meets Modern Comfort
Our collection is a delightful blend of retro charm and contemporary style. Each piece is thoughtfully designed to evoke the warm, cheerful spirit of vintage Pyrex dishes, kitschy Christmas decor, and the beloved Holt Howard Santas and Pixieware. Imagine wearing a shirt that not only looks festive but also tells a story of a bygone era!
With a radiant smile, I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Collectif Clothing is turning my Autumnal style fantasies into a stunning reality with their beautiful Vintage Eliana Forest Floral Swing Dress! The Eliana, a design I hadn’t previously explored, immediately swept me off my feet with its charming sweetheart neckline and a woodland print that sings of the colors of fall. The presence of adorable bunny rabbits dancing through the pattern added an unexpected dash of delight, leaving me absolutely brimming with excitement to slip into this lovely number.
Being a curvy girl I used to shy away from bright colors and statement jewelry pieces because I wasn’t sure I could pull them off. I learned that I sure can pull them off because it is all about wearing the right colors for my skin tone, wearing the right silhouette for my curvy figure, and accessorizing with the right scale jewelry pieces.
A great color combo that I especially like are yellow and green. I am wearing my lovely daisy floral dress from Heart of Haute that has lots of yellows and greens and paired it with a bright yellow cardigan. Because the dress top fits like a wrap (perfect for big boobs) I added this gorgeous bee necklace to accessorize my outfit with. I love a great retro inspired dress or Pinup dress because the styles from the 1950s are extremely flattering and Heart of Haute is also size inclusive. I think it just screams Spring and it makes me excited that warmer weather and sunshine are on the way.
My bee necklace is a large scale pendant that fits very nicely on a plus size curvy figure. If the bee pendant were smaller it would get lost on me, but, having the right scale pendant really makes a difference on a curvy figure. Also, the necklace is adjustable so it can be made longer or shorter and having length as an option is a really nice feature. I also paired my necklace with matching bee earrings to complete the set. My jewelry is from Erstwilder and they make very high quality pieces that flatter all bodies, especially curvy full figures.

Christmas time is here and that means a visit to one of our favorite places today, Grandma Buddies Christmas Tree Farm. This Christmas tree farm not only has loads of amazing trees, but they have a magical holiday barn decorated with gingerbread, flocked trees and wreaths, and lots and lots of decorations and special holiday touches. You can sip hot cocoa from their cocoa cart and walk around the farm to pick out your holiday tree.
On our visit today the sun came out for a little bit on this chilly December day, and we made the most of it by not only picking out our tree but also doing one last photo shoot of the year.
The theme for my outfit today was a mix of holiday cheer and half wonderland because my accessories are brooches from the Erstwilder Christmas collection and their brand-new Kitschy Witch collab for the Alice in Wonderland collection.
I wore my crimson red holiday top and matched it up with my Alice in Wonderland vintage-inspired Pinup circle skirt and my turquoise blue coat added the much-needed warmth that day.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while you know how much I love color. I love bright and bold colors and pastels too. Wearing color energizes me and gives me life!! My sweet hubby Gary and I did a photoshoot recently on how to wear a rainbow 🌈 where I mixed and matched cardigans, shoes, hair bows, and earrings with dress.
I have been wanting to write this blog post for a while now and it was actually my husband Gary that came up with the idea of why don’t we get dressed up for quarantine dinner instead of sitting around in the same athleisure we’ve been wearing for months and make dinner an experience.
Once we went into lock-down, we, like most other folks in California, didn’t really leave the house except for essentials. We got comfortable in our athleisure and even eating dinner on the couch. So I actually got really excited at the idea of dressing up for quarantine dinner. Being a modern day Pinup I used to spend a lot of time on styling my outfits, doing my hair and makeup and making sure I had just the right accessories for dinner out with my husband or a day out in the city. But, dressing for quarantine dinners doesn’t have to mean a very fancy outfit and ladies can wear a dress or skirt and guys can put on a nice shirt or sweater. Putting some effort in your dinner appearance really goes a long way with the family, your spouse, or significant other and instantly makes everyone perk-up and emotions uplift almost immediately and this is the time we could all use some uplifted feelings.
Here are some of my favorite quarantine dinner outfits over the past several months and I even got to pull out my vintage Pyrex and I can tell you that everything really does taste better when it is cooked in vintage Pyrex!! I felt like the Marvelous Mrs. Maisal!! I am using my super rare Australian Turquoise Pyrex Picket Fence or White Spears pattern, my Turquoise Snowflake Pyrex, my Pink Scroll Pyrex, and even my red Catherineholm Lotus Bowl that are all from the 1950s-1960s and are mid-century modern. Not all our meals were fancy, we sure do enjoy a pizza or even takeout but eating it in an outfit you spent a little time getting yourself into really does make it all taste yummy and it creates memories too!!
