It's bad, it's true, December! Now there is not long until Christmas is at the door, and in the store we are also getting ready - both to give our loved ones gifts and to be spoiled and surprised by those who love us! It can be difficult to come up with gifts, regardless of whether we are talking about the gift itself or what it costs or whether you are the giver or receiver of it, and that is why we asked all the lovely women in Team Mondo Kaos, which items from the store are on their wish list for Christmas this year, so you can hopefully find a nice Christmas present for someone you care about or for yourself, with us!
In this blog post, we tell you about what our lovely Team Mondo Ladies have on their wish list this year for Christmas 2019 based on our wonderful retro and vintage goodies:
Boss Lady Ditte's wishes for Christmas 2019
Ditte, who lives in Los Angeles, has already kicked off Christmas and had her Christmas gift wishes sent over.
Despite the fact that the weather is not quite for the winter wardrobe yet in LA, Ditte has jumped in the clothes to show off some of her early Christmas gifts from Mondo Kaos.
Shaped dress with elbow-length sleeves from Uniquer Vintage.
Ditte has chosen the classic pencil dress with a high collar Unique Vintage, as it is a super usable dress that can be dressed up or down on occasion. It is stretchy and has a slit at the back, so it is absolutely perfect for the daily bike rides (the dress will be in the store next week (week 51).
Americana jacket from House of Foxy.
The other thing on Ditte's list is the fine Americana jacket from The House Of Foxy. It is in wool mix, is lined and has a really nice and feminine cut. Ditte is mostly a "jeans girl" and along with a pair of tight jeans from Lady K Loves gives the jacket a slightly more raw look. The jacket is already a favorite!
It is a rare sight to see Ditte without a pair of hoops or bracelets and these are a few of her favorites. A lot of new earrings and bracelets from Rock It Rosie will land next week (week 51).
A must-have on Ditte's list were the beautiful Frida boots in brown suede from Miss L Four.
Ditte was unlucky and broke her foot a few years ago, and therefore it is important for her that shoes and boots have a comfortable sole, as well as fit well on the foot. And Ditte has reported back that they do!
Shop Manger Stine's wishes for Christmas 2019
Americana jacket from House of Foxy.
Stine also loves the new Americana jacket from The House of Foxy, due to its angular silhouette and the speech-cut cut, which fits perfectly into Stine's raw 60s inspired wardrobe. Whether Stine has a set on with t-shirt og miniskirt or a simple A-line dress, so the jacket fits, and therefore it is highest on her wish list!
Ice Skater burgundy cardigan from Emmy Design.
The Ice Skater cardigan from Emmy Design has been one of Stine's favorites since we first got it in the store! She loves the delicious, soft wool and the waist-cut cut, and she has it in a myriad of colors. However, she does not have it in dark red / burgundy, so it just had to be on the wish list this year!
Betty A-line dress in black from The House of Foxy.
Stine also wants the new Betty dress from The House of Foxy as a Christmas present. The Betty dress was designed in collaboration with Mondo Kaos, and Stine loves the beautiful sweetheart neckline, which highlights her bust, collarbone and neck really beautifully!
The fourth wish on Stine's list is the red glitter dress from Marmalade. She thinks it's a real 60's dance dress that looks like a dress that the Motown group The Supremes could have performed in back in the 60's!
Amber in rose sparkle from Miss L Fire.
Stine wants the beautiful Amber shoes from Miss L Fire in the new pink gold color with glitter as a Christmas present. One of Stine's favorite models is the Amber shoe, because they have an absolutely fantastic fit, and when she saw the new color, they immediately smoked on the wish list!
Kirstine's wishes for Christmas 2019
Amber shoes in gold from Miss L Fire.
Kirstine wants the beautiful Amber gold shoes from Miss L Fire as Christmas present. Kirstine also loves the Amber model, and thinks that in the gold color they are the perfect New Year's shoes that even match the gold dress from Marmalade, which she also wants as a Christmas present! In addition, Kirstine would also use the gold shoes to spice up her everyday life - we can just imagine Kirstine in a classic vintage-inspired outfit with a feminine shirt blouse, black pencil skirt and then the beautiful gold shoes as a contrast to the black / white!
Emma dress in green from Daisy Dapper.
Kirstine wants the new Emma dress from Daisy Dapper, because she thinks it's the perfect office dress - it reminds her of the sophisticated office manager 'Joan Holloway' from the TV series Mad Men, a character who became especially known for her amazing outfits!
Long red gloves from Rhanders Gloves.
The long leather gloves from Rhanders Handsker is on Kirstine's wish list because she thinks they are a must-have in all the retro and vintage-loving women's wardrobes and because they can be used for the next many winters! Long gloves are elegant for pretty much any outfit, and then red is just a great color that really lights up in the winter darkness!
Glitter dress in gold from Marmalade.
On Kirstine's wish list we also find the fantastic gold glitter dress from Marmalade, because she thinks it's the ultimate party dress that exudes 60s! The beautiful cocktail dress can be used for all festive occasions that you think lacks that extra sparkle, and it can be styled in a myriad of ways! If Kirstine gets the glitter dress as a Christmas present, she will style it with Marilyn curls, statement necklace and earrings, stockings in champagne and gold shoes from Miss L Fire!
Lines wishes for Christmas 2019
Frida shoes in burgundy wrinckle lacquer from Nordic ShoePeople.
The beautiful Frida shoes from Nordic Shoe People is on Line's wish list because they have it, and we quote, "BEST sole ever!".
Line has, in her own words, very square feet, and she swears she has found the dream shoe!
Hepburn swing dress in forest green from The Pretty dress company. On Line's wish list we also find the elegant Hepburn dress from The Pretty Dress Company. Line thinks the swing in the skirt is absolutely amazing, especially with one petticoat below, and then she also loves that the dress has pockets! The dark blue color also compliments her hair and highlights her eyes!
Swing skirt in red from Daisy Dapper.
Line owns many swing skirts, but not yet one in red, and now that we are approaching the sweet Christmas season, she has fallen in love with this new 50er inspired skirt frsa Daisy Dapper! We can just imagine Line dancing around the Christmas tree with the family in the beautiful skirt and a feminine retro blouse
Wrap dress in dark red with dots from Bloomsbury.
The last wish on Line's list is one of our bestselling dresses, the classic turn on dress from The Seamstress of Bloomsbury! Line thinks it is the best dress if you are on the go and the most beautiful "dressing gown" you can think of - just wrap the dress around yourself and blow your hair out, then you are ready for the day! Line already has it in a few different colors, but as she says, there is something about the color red, and Christmas is approaching!
Cecilie's wishes for Christmas 2019
Betty A-line dress in black from The House of Foxy.
The first wish on Cecilie's list is our beautiful Betty dress from The House of Foxy, one of our most popular dresses. Cecilie wants the dress because she loves its shapely cut, which she thinks can be worn all year round and for all occasions! A black dress is a must-have in the wardrobe, and depending on how you style the black Betty dress, you can both use it as cocktail dress and everyday dress with a hint of retro style!
Swing skirt with braces in black from Unique Vintage.
Cecilie also wants the new one Unique Vintage skirt with braces. She is 'head over heels' over it because it gives a classic early 60s look that exudes France, Brigitte Bardot and romantic walks through the streets of Paris!
Luiza cocktail dress in brown houndstooth from Stop Staring!
The beautiful new cocktail dress from Stop Staring! is on Cecilie's wish list because she thinks the detachable leopard collar is really cute and because it gives two completely different looks - so it's almost like two dresses in one! In addition, she thinks the cut is really beautiful and creates a classic hourglass silhouette!
Ginger pencil dress in dark brown from The House of Foxy.
The fourth Christmas gift wish on Cecilie's list is our new beautiful dress from The House of Foxy. Cecilie thinks the chocolate brown color is absolutely amazing and she almost feels like the dress melts down over her when she puts it on because it is made in such a really delicious material. In addition, she is completely crazy with the dress's classic silhouette, which sits close from top to knee, and the fantastic art deco lines that help to create additional shape!
Amber shoes in black from Miss L Fire. Cecilie is not used to walking in high heels and rarely does, but after she has tried the amazing Amber shoes from Miss L Fire, then she has begun to consider whether it is time to change it. She thinks that Amber is super comfortable to wear and wear, and she loves the design, which she thinks is classic and timeless and goes for all outfits and looks, and therefore the beautiful shoes are on Cecilie's wish list this year!
Karla's wishes for Christmas 2019
The dark green glitter lurex dress from Pretty Dress Company.
Karla wants this fantastic cocktail dress from The Pretty Dress Company, which she is completely in love with because the green color has a slight blue tinge when the light hits it. If she is lucky enough to get the beautiful dress as a Christmas present, then she will wear it for New Year's Eve, where she will wear it with stitched socks, red shoes, red nails and lipstick, glittering jewelry and a hairstyle with Hollywood Waves!
The new shirt blouse from Bloomsbury in cream.
Karla has long been looking for a feminine shirt blouse with plenty of room for the bosom, which is not made of cotton, so she was very excited when we got this new vintage shirt blouse from The Seamstress of Bloomsbury in the shop. Karla thinks that the shirt has really nice details and at the same time a formal design that makes it useful for many different retro looks, both for everyday and party!
Amber shoes in ruby red from Miss L'Fire.
Like most others, Karla is really happy with our shoes from Miss L Fire, and she wants the red Amber as a Christmas present this year because they remind her of the fairy tale 'The Red Shoes' by HC Andersen, which was one of her favorite adventures as a child!
The beautiful pencil skirt from House of Foxy with faux sarong effect in dark red.
One of Karla's favorite skirts in the shop is the beautiful 'waterfall' skirt from The House of Foxy. She loves it because it gives a narrow silhouette, while she has room to move due to the sarong effect, and therefore she also wants it in the new beautiful dark red color, which she thinks fits perfectly the colors of winter!
Socks with stitches from What Katie Did.
Karla thinks that socks with seams can always add an outfit 'that extra', whether it is for a party or in everyday life. In addition, she tells us that she has heard that stitched socks lengthen her legs, and that because she does not have the longest legs, she likes to create the illusion that she has - and therefore there are always retro socks with stitches from What Katie Did on Karla's wish list!
It was the whole team Mondo Kaos' wish list with requests from the store's own range of retro and vintage-inspired clothing and shoes! We hope that you have been inspired to write a wish or two on your own wish list - or that you may have found the perfect gift for your girlfriend, wife, girlfriend, colleague or fellow student!
Loving Christmas greetings,
Team Mondo Kaos
