Hanukah Party Fashion Show!

I love going to my friend's Michael and Red's annual Hanukah party. While everyone is busy throwing Christmas or holiday soirees, Michael and Red just go straight for Hanukah Harry and whip up some FABULOUS latkes (that is potato pancake for those of you that don't speak Hanukah).

In addition to knowing how to throw a lovely cocktail party, Michael and Red are also some of my most fantastically fashionable friends. This comes along with having other fantastically fashionable friends. All of this combined means that we ended up having a fashion show while we ate large quantities of latkes and drank champagne. As Adam Sandler says, "8 crazy nights!". Well, our fashion show Hanukah party was a good example.

For those of you that are unfamiliar, this is a latke. It is fried heaven. Literally you fry up shredded potatoes into yummy pancakes. Adding apple sauce or sour cream is the most traditional way to eat it. I added a side of lox (smoked salmon) just to make it extra Jewish:)


Michael and Red even went all out and had Pixie sticks and Dr. Brown's soda! This is a big deal to me. Pixie sticks are a happy memory from childhood and are not just hanging around at any old store. They had to search for these. I think it was worth the struggle. And Dr. Brown's is a staple of any Jewish deli. The funny part is you really cannot find this brand anywhere else. If you have never tried it, today is your lucky day because I am introducing it to you! Try the cream soda, you will just die.


Now back to the fashion show.... How much do you love this picture? This is Red's best photo shoot pose... I think she has a new career in her future:) This is the top of a vintage suit that she picked up. We all loved it so much because it reminded us of what was cool back when we had our respective bar/bat-mitzvah's. This is around 12 or 13 and represents you becoming an adult. So much Jewish knowledge for you today! The point is that all of us had our lovely bar and bat-mitzvah's in the early 90's and this is exactly what was cool. Lots of big puffy shoulders. Oy, you should see my crazy bat-mitzvah dress. The best part is that this is cool again. I love it.




I know I look kind of scary in this picture, but the sweater is to die for. Rachel started pulling out her Bubby's (grandma's) vintage clothing and we all went nuts. This is her cardigan with pink motif's. It is grandma chic.
















This is Dom, one of our other fabulous friends. I was in love with her ruffled green dress and earthy necklace (a gift from Rachel). She topped it all off with her Chanel boots and brown tights. Who knew earthy chic could work so well at a Hanukah party?!?

The finale of the night's fashion show was this awesome holiday sweater. She was suppose to be going to an "Ugly Christmas sweater" party following our Hanukah party, but the recession proof side of her would not actually buy an ugly sweater. Instead, she purchased a cute vintage sweater at a thrift store and added her own version of ugly. Jingle bells strategically placed on her nipples. Classic.

Overall, Michael and Red's Hanukah party fashion show was a smashing success! I always knew I looked forward to this time of year for a reason.....
