Christmas at Greenacres.

It was the most fantastic Christmas tree anyone had ever seen.

Rising at one end of the garden room at least 60 feet in the air, like “some great Athena in a Greek temple.”

This “Athena” was bedecked with a mass of colored baubles, 5,000 in all, some as big as pumpkins.

Greenacres, Harold Lloyd’s 44-room mansion, was the “hottest ticket in town” come the holidays.

And since you knew that nobody in their right mind could compete with the surroundings, you were smart enough not to try.

All you needed was:

  • The perfect drape.
  • The perfect velvet.
  • The perfect cut.

Say hello to Clark, he’s just coming over with the perfect Martini.

Isn’t that Colbert, and Garbo, looking lovely, but not nearly as lovely as you?

Velvet Evening Dress (No. 2503). True to the 1930s original. Simple front and back neckline, with that back action slightly lower. Bias cut has never been improved on for that impeccable way it suggests your curves without giving them away.

Does Lubitsch really want to cast you in his next movie? Imported.

Women’s sizes: 0 through 20.

Colors: Vintage Blue, Black.

So gorgeous
I bought this dress although I don't wear gowns as a rule, but I just couldn't resist. It's beautiful, very feminine, and makes me feel very lady like. It is perfect for women that have small waist and hips, falls beautifully without being too tight. I wear usually a 4 and I bought a 2... It seems roomy, I don't know if I a smaller size would work... In their night gowns I buy x-small. I have the teal color...stunning!

Luxurious holiday dress
I'm 5'10, large frame and ordered a size 20 in red. It fits great, just a tad too large under the armholes which can easily be tailored to fit perfect and the length is also perfect for my 2.5 inch heels. The dress has a lovely swish around my feet, a bit of stretch and I feel very pretty. New Years here I come! I find J.Peterman sizing doesn't match other retailers and I have to order much larger than I usually do, roughly 2 sizes up. I normally wear a size 16. Hope this helps!

velvet evening dress
Fabissimo! I wore this with the long gloves. I'm geting thei Victorian beady thing to go with it. It is a divine color. I got the garnet. I have very white skin, so it really looks super. Compliments up the wazzoo. It is very flattering. Drapes well around the dreaded hips and tummy. Will wear it and all the accessories to the MESSIAH later in December. thanks to whoever designed this little number

I bought this dress in the garnet color and love it. It has been a perfect dress when you need some glamour at an event. Sexy and classy. Shows off your jewelry nicely, too. Very nice quality. True to size.I am seriously thinking of getting the teal color.
