Dressing for Christmas Eve / Am Hl. Abend / La Vigilia



Like it is custom in my country of origin (Austria), the Holy Child deposits the presents under the Christmas Tree in the evening of the 24th. Ok, my son is grown up now, but he still clings to the old habits!!  So I try to pack as many parcels as possible (apart from the main presents all kinds of sweets, chewing gum, socks...) just to have him there sitting on the floor, unpacking for quite some time and distributing  the contents.
We don't really dress elegantly, just casual chic to be comfortable, so one of my last finds, a midi length floral lace skirt - in military camouflage print - will do nicely.

Com'é abitudine nella mia patria (Austria) Gesù Bambino porta i doni la sera del 24. Va bene, mio figlio e grande adesso, ma ciononostante ci piace unirci intorno all'albero, con lui seduto sul pavimento, aprendo i pacchi. Per tirarlo alla lunga a parte i regali veri incarto tutto quello che mi capita sottomano, dolci, molti pacchetti di liquirizia (che gli piace tanto), chicche,  tante paia di calze che nessuno mette mai perché sono già troppi.....
Non ci vestiamo proprio elegante, più casual chic, così posso usare una delle gonne che ho comprato nei ultimi mercatini - é di pizzo floreale, lunga fino alla caviglia - in disegno mimetico militare.

Obwohl ich jetzt in Mailand lebe, wo die Weihnachtsgeschenke am Morgen des 25. ausgeteilt werden, findet die Bescherung bei uns am Abend des 24. unter dem Weihnachtsbaum statt. Mein Sohn ist zwar schon erwachsen, feiert aber Weihnachten nach wie vor mit uns und hält an den alten Gewohnheiten fest. Das bedeutet, wir setzen uns rund um den Baum, er darunter auf den Fussboden, öffnet alle Geschenke und teilt sie aus. Um dieses Ritual schön in die Länge zu ziehen packe ich ausser den richtigen Geschenken so viele Dinge wie möglich ein (Süßigkeiten, Kaugummi, Socken die für einen Tausendfüßler reichen würden etc.)
Wir ziehen uns eher bequem als richtig elegant an - die ideale Gelegenheit für eine meiner letzten Erwerbungen, einen knöchellangen Spitzen-Rock - in militärischem Tarnmuster.









Elegant styling: Silk blouse with ruffles. Anyone owns a classic Chanel jacket in military green? Would be perfect!! No??? Me too - so I opt for a similar one by Rena Lange (left) or a gold and cream vintage one by Mila Schön (1980')


Elegantere Variante: Cremefarbige Seidenbluse mit Rüschen am Ausschnitt. Hat vielleicht jemand eine militärgrüne klassische Chanel-Jacke? Würde super dazu passen! In Ermangelung dieser tuts auch eine von Rena Lange (links) oder eine gold- und cremefarbene (Vintage Mila Schön, rechts)


Styling più elegante: Camicia di seta avorio con ruches. Avete per caso una classica giacca Chanel in verde militare? No??? Nemmeno io, ma basta anche questa di Rena Lange (a sinistra), o una in oro/crema (Mila Schön, 1980', a destra)






More practical: Top in knitted silk

Un po' più pratico: Golfino in maglia di seta

Ein bisschen praktischer: Pullover aus Seidenstrick






Sweet accessory: 1940' enamelled mesh bag by Whiting&Davis

Molto carino da abbinare: Borsetta da sera in maglia di metallo smaltata (Whiting&Davis, 1940')

Ganz süss dazu: Abendtasche aus emaillierten Metallplättchen (Whiting&Davis, 1940')









1920' style:  this is the version I prefer (....but would have to be slimmer...)

Stile anni '20: questo e la versione che mi piace di più (ma non perdona neanche un etto di troppo sui fianchi, figuriamoci tutti i chili che ho preso recentemente....)

20er-Jahre Styling: Diese Version gefällt mir persönlich am besten (habe aber dafür zuviel zugenommen in der letzten Zeit...)







And for an evening at the restaurant: Suede jacket bavarian style

Per una sera al ristorante: Giacca di camoscio stile bavarese

Und für einen Abend im Restaurant: Trachtenjacke aus Wildleder









:)))

  42. we also open our gifts after midnight here...usually after we get back from the mass that is held at midnight:) I also like to feel comfortable so I don't wear anything fancy, but I like to wear red and I usually do get a bit dressed up.

    great ideas for outfits!
