The Vintage Bazaar's Holiday Jubilee in ModCloth

I discovered a new antique/vintage extravaganza in my area recently - The Vintage Bazaar! Like the Brimfield Show you've heard me babble about, the Vintage Bazaar happens three times a year and their last event, taking place in early November, is their Holiday Jubilee.

Vintage decorations, antiques, and Christmas??

It really was an event made for me. How did they know?

Unlike Brimfield, there is a $10 admission fee but it's totally worth it! The event takes place on a farm and vendors fill their multiple tents and heated greenhouses with holiday goodies, vintage, and antique items. Among the vendors there are food trucks selling yummy delights and stands serving hot cocoa and cider.

My pal, Christina, came over early a few Saturdays ago and we ventured up to Salisbury (about an hour away) for a day of holiday cheer. I had just received this incredible new Christmas dress from ModCloth the day before the Jubilee and I knew I had to wear it.

I was surprised to find no one else in holiday garb (not one Santa hat or holiday sweater in sight!) but did receive a tremendous amounts of compliments on my dress throughout the day. It didn't surprise me - look at this beauty! I am so in love with the little ladies getting ready for Christmas.

This dress is part of the ModCloth brand and runs a bit big, in my opinion. I ordered my usual medium (expecting it to be a snug fit as most dresses are these days due to being in-between sizes) but it actually fits me so comfortably and well.

The waist according to the size chart is 28"-29" but it's definitely more of a 29"-30" since my waist is just that and this fits as if it were made for me. I was extremely pleased with the fit. I wouldn't say it is enough to size down, but it's definitely worth mentioning!

The Holiday Jubilee was a sight to see! They had Christmas music playing outside the tents and cheer was everywhere. Nearly every booth was so full, it was hard to make it through it all! It was great to see the place so full! Everyone was in a happy mood, smiling, and enjoying the unique and vintage decorations.

I grabbed a few items including some Christmas tree mason jar snow globes and a string of vintage tree garland made out of plastic cookies from the 60s. I even found a gift or two for some lucky friends!

If you're debating getting this dress (I know it's a splurge at $99 - even I don't usually spend that much if I can help it!), treat yourself and make it your Christmas gift to yourself.

It's just a beautiful piece. The fabric is good quality, it's lined, the back zips up to the nape of your neck, it's flattering and has a lovely neckline, and the print is simply to die for!

I can't praise this beauty enough. ModCloth, you knocked it out of the park with this one!
