Now that Thanksgiving is over we think it's finally safe to start celebrating Christmas!  There's no denying that there's just something special in the air during this time of year.  We got a jump start on celebrating this weekend. After years of searching, Amanda found the most amazing 6' tall vintage tinsel/aluminum Christmas tree (here's a photo of it on her Instagram here).  It's the perfect thing to match all of her vintage ornaments and we'll be sharing more of our Christmas decor closer to the actual date.  I started the holiday season by going to see the new Christmas comedy, The Night Before.  Definitely not your typical Christmas movie, but it was right up my alley.

As an early Christmas present, we've teamed up with Erstwilder to offer y'all 15% off your orders using the promo code 'JUNEBUGSONLY'.  The promo code is good now until December 7 so be sure to get those orders in soon! Brooches make really great stocking stuffers for others.... and maybe one could magically end up on your car while you're shopping for someone else because that happens... right? ;)

Le Chat Noir + Fox Trot

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Black Hair Scarf - Amazon | Heels - BAIT Footwear (Similar) | Cat Brooch c/o Erstwilder

June: Fox Trot Paris Dress + Tootsie Cardigan in Burgundy c/o Doll Me Up
Sleeping Fox Brooch c/o Hungry Designs | Black Hansel Heels - BAIT Footwear
Bracelets - vintage Bakelite + Splendette   |  Lip Color: Red Velvet c/o Besame Cosmetics


New clothes always makes us feel like trying new things with our hair.  Katie did a tutorial a little while ago about how she's styling her newly short hair (here) and I'm trying to cope with having a weird attachment to my longer hair but having no idea what to do with it because it's SO thick and heavy.  I was excited to see that Jasmin from Vintage Vandalizm (who I think has hair similar in texture to mine, but longer) posted a hair tutorial for Bettie Page Waves and I've been in love ever since.  I adapt it a little for a side part due to my lack of bangs and I've been tempted to order some clip-in ones from Classy Rebel for a while now.  Has anyone tried them?   I'm worried about attempting to match my specific color red, even if I buy unprocessed ones (my hair color is for dark hair only).

More about these outfits, in the past, we've talked about our love for cardigans, but hands down this fall, the Tootsie Cardigans from Doll Me Up are our absolute favorites.  They come in a multitude of colors, so there is a tootsie cardigan for pretty much every outfit.  So, whether you're using the cardigan to compliment a novelty print dress or to add some color to a simpler outfit, these are always the best.  Go ahead and load your cart down, we hear her Black Friday sale is going to be wonderful ;)

// For those who are planning out their Black Friday deals:  Doll Me Up is doing 25% off sitewide and 50% off their sale category.

Bryony at Tip-Top

Monday, November 23, 2015

JuneLong Sleeve Ava in Blue Hardware Store Print Dress
Leaf Brooch - Vintage  |  Yellow Betty Heels c/o Miss L Fire 

Black Hansel Heels - BAIT Footwear  |  Skunkboy Glasses - Bonlook

Amanda came to Georgia for a visit this weekend and we were so excited to hit some of our favorite spots (though it's a small town so it only takes us a few hours to stop by them all).  We went thrifting and found some more amazing wool pencil skirts to add to our collections, started Master of None on Netflix (hilarious), drank a lot of coffee and spent a lot of time in our pajamas.... it was wonderful.  When we were wandering about, we got to break out some dresses we've been holding onto since it was hot outside!

They've been floating around for a while, so you may recognize these dresses, but not the brand name; that's because Bryony was formerly UK brand Poppy England, but recently re-branded to set themselves apart.  We previously blogged several of their kitschy, cute pieces here and here.  Now that we own a few of their dresses, we love that a lot of our favorite features seem to carry over universally to almost all their dresses: most of them have pockets (yesss!), truly lovely + unique prints and are beautifully made.  We also love that the sashes are always a differing but complimentary print to the one on the actual dress (but the sashes are reversible, so the other side matches the dress).  The long sleeves on this specific dress made them great for the chilly weather over the weekend.

Scallops + Swiss Dots

Friday, November 20, 2015

 Black Nana Heels  - BAIT Footwear | Gold and Pearl Cornucopia Brooch - Vintage (Similar)
 Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat - Vintage (Similar) | Besame Red Lipstick c/o Besame

June: Unique Vintage Burgundy Swiss Dot Garden State Dress c/o Unique Vintage
Faux Fur Wrap - Amazon  |  Glitter Frankie Pump - Madewell 1937 (similar)
Pearls - Vintage  |  Beaded Bag - Vintage (similar)  |  Besame Red Lipstick c/o Besame

With Thanksgiving coming up quickly, we wanted to showcase what we would wear if our families dressed-up for Thanksgiving.  In reality, on Thanksgiving day I will be in pajamas and Amanda will be wearing a comfy sweater, and we will both be stuffing ourselves with all of the good Southern food and an entire table dedicated solely to desserts.  Let's be real, sometimes it's nice to just break out the fur and feel a little fancy!  We both decided to size-up in these dresses from Unique Vintage (to an S from our usual XS in anything with a little stretch) as they have less stretch in the bust area.  We recommending checking the size chart before ordering.  

What are your Thanksgiving plans?
