With the holiday season upon us, chances are you’ve got at least one party penciled in on your calendar. Whether it’s a work function, a night out with friends or a New Year’s Eve celebration, you may be looking for a little inspiration for your outfit.
There’s no right or wrong way to do holiday fashion: opt for something with sparkle, go for shades of red or show off your sense of humor and partake in the ‘ugly holiday sweater’ tradition. My style is something classic with a hint of nostalgia:
When shopping for holiday gifts, I prefer local and handmade fare. I visit my favorite independent shops, buy handmade online (via Etsy, of course) and even get in on a little of the handmade action myself (loving experimenting with jewelry and body care these days, try one of Crunchy Betty’s DIY’s here).
The challenge sometimes is finding a gift that is also eco-friendly: organic, made with natural materials, sweatshop-free… the list goes on. Yet another challenge is finding that perfect gift for the fashion lover on your list. To get you started, I’ve put together some Etsy-inspired eco-friendly gift ideas: Earrings by BeJeweledNH, Earwarmer by PierogiPicnic, Vintage Brooch by FunkydevazVintage
Happy Holidays, and happy shopping!
