I hope everyone has been enjoying the slayride so far! I'm finally posting part two of my holiday lookbook after editing and battling a sore throat. We still have 2 days left till Christmas so maybe this last minute inspiration will serve you all well.
My first look is my take on the traditional holiday suit. Velvet is so in this year so I incorporated that as well as jewel tones to serve as my inspiration. My Blue Velvet vintage blazer($6 thrift) ,which I have been dying to pull out, seemed like perfect fit.Its Sapphire jewel tone got me thinking 'why don't I pair another jewel tone?' so I did.My Target x Altuzarra tuxedo pants ($12 on sale) in a velvety Ruby hue definitely sealed the deal.I love a good white button down so I grabbed my Express Studio one ,made to be worn with cufflinks, and added my vintage clip on bowtie for a feminine flair ($3 thrift).Instead of a basic pump I added fuzzy clip ons to the front of my Louboutins and grabbed my Pewter Micheal Kors bag for some dazzle.
My second look is one part romance , one part warm and fuzzy. My oversized fuzzy sweater (H&M, $12 last year) in cream compliment my black lace skirt (Shein.com , $5) so well. Just to make it fun, I added my pearl ear headband ($1.99) and my gold bow necklace (Forever 21 ,$4.80).This skirt always reminded me of Paris, and that Paris street style is bold, yet romantic, as well as fun. Being inspired by the French and their fancy wares, I zipped up my sassy pair of heels (JustFab, $14) and my dainty bag (Thrift, $3) and went with it. Nothing says romance and French elegance like wine, or at least the color. My fave stole from Forever 21 ( $17.80) gave the right amount of bold color and ritz to complete my look.
The last look *sad face is the ultimate fun holiday look! It has glitz, glam, sparkle, fur and shine. Living in North Carolina, I can expect not to see a 'White Christmas'. We are expecting 65 degree weather, so I put on a silver brocade skirt (Forever21, $7..old) and my new darling Zara heels ($30..Black Friday Sale).I layered a white button down with my jeweled sweatshirt (Forever21, $24..old) and then topped that with my Furry faux fur vest (Target old , $20) .I two-ponytailed this look for ultimate cuteness and my owl clutch (Asos.com $12) seemed to compliment the grays and silvers in my look.
I hope the slayride was all you expected and served as an inspiration .I would not have been able to do this without the encouraging words of all those who like my style as well as my wonderful husband/photographer Tim Ellis. Comment below and tell me which look is your favorite!
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
