A Sherlockian Christmas
Last night Patrick and I took our friend Lizzie out to see Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol as her Christmas gift. Like me, Lizzie has a passion for the British detective and we got super gussied up for our night on the town.
Patrick and I saw the show last year, and were so pleased that Artists Rep decided to bring the show back for the season. It is a delightful play on A Christmas Carol, but in which Sherlock fills the role as Scrooge and is taken on an eye-opening journey by three spirits. If you’re in Portland this holiday season and a Sherlock fan, I highly recommend seeing it.

I am having a fabulous holiday giveaway right here.
What a snappy pair you make. Your dress hads such beautifyul detailing and love your hair here. That tie is so apt…I just love a good themed outfit. xx Shauna
OMG, the hair!
And I think it’s awesome that you get dressed up to go to the theater. We sort of have a joke here in Seattle about how badly people look when they go out on the town . . .
My stars, do you look absolutely stunning. That chic dress, amazing hair, and perfectly complimentary jewelry all add up to one of the most enchantingly lovely vintage evening looks I can ever recall seeing.
Patrick looked thoroughly dapper, too – I utterly adore his tie (I’ve always loved the scent of a classic pipe tobacco).
I can only imagine the heads that you two must turn when you step out!
That dress is just mind blowing and I love the necklace, and well, just everything! You two are so lucky to have each other, your outfits always compliment each others so beautifully 🙂
That dress is absolutely stunning on you! And I’ve gotta say – I love Patrick’s tie!!! 🙂
Ooh I love Sherlock Holmes, and I love your outfits! Your dress is just gorgeous, and Patrick’s tie is great–and how perfect for the occasion?!
What a perfect LBD! And the necklace really adds to the look!
Patrick’s tie… swoon! Also, amazing hair. I can’t victory roll to save my life.
It took a lot of practice for me to get to this point. I started by using synthetic rats and rolling my hair around those and then pinning. Have you checked out YouTube for tutorials? I found a handful of them useful!
Who besides a vintage clothing fanatic would have a pipe tie to wear to a Sherlock Holmes play? Well done!
You have a fabulous figure! And might I add that I am completely jealous of the amazing wardrobe you have! *sigh* One day… 🙂
