Winter Night Light

Dress (Bernie Dexter); Cardigan (Old Navy); Bow bracelet (Charming Charlie); Boots (Tommy Hilfiger)
This retro, 1950s style dress from Bernie Dexter is one of my favorite Winter dresses, though KDef says it looks like Thomas Kinkade threw up all over it. 
The glittery snow globe ring is from local boutique Silver in the City; I scored the statement necklace at this year's Style Swap Indy.
I have to admit I nearly spit Diet Coke through my nose laughing when he said it, though I wrinkled my nose and gave him the stink-eye, too.
The cloche from local boutique Ginger 'n Spice is a sometime accessory with this dress, depending on my mood and the weather.
I enjoy the Painter of Light's work on Christmas cards and cookie tins, but I can't imagine hanging his work over my couch - it's just doesn't fit my interior design aesthetic. 
That said, a quaint little Winter cottage scene reminiscent of the cover of a Wisconsin Cheeseman catalog is just the right amount of fairy-tale kitsch for a fun holiday dress!
I love these Tommy Hilfiger boots so much that I recently bought a second pair in burgundy. They're waterproof and lined in plaid flannel!
