Happy new year! I’ve resolved to spend more time blogging this year, so I’m starting with my New Year’s Eve outfit. After seeing a beautiful mid century-style sari dress by Jeannette Redhead of Redhead’s Vintage on the Ooh La La! Vintage Facebook group, I promptly ordered one.
I’ve always loved the bright blue sari dress worn by Shirley MacLaine in the 1960 classic film Ocean’s Eleven, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have one of my own! While we couldn’t find a sari in quite the right blue color, Jeannette did discover several gorgeous color options for me. I picked a rich emerald green with gold accents and she got straight to work.
The result was amazing, and Jeannette couldn’t be nicer or more professional to work with. She even included a cute little reticule-style purse in the same sari fabric to match my dress! My dress is her standard sari dress design, which includes an asymmetrical shoulder, attached shawl, and pleated hip drape. Pricing varies, but the cost was very reasonable and order turnaround wasn’t bad at all, even from the UK. Highly recommended!
