Thanksgiving Weekend | Holiday Outfit Ideas

Sooo....it has been forever since I've done one of those holiday outfit ideas posts. My Thanksgiving isn't going to be very relaxing considering I work in retail, as I will be working Thanksgiving evening and all Black Friday weekend [morning to evening]. No Black Friday shopping for me, unless I can do some online shopping before and after shifts [or get my family to shop for me]. Anyhow...onto some outfit ideas for the upcoming weekend.

What I Picked Up at Ulta Beauty

The time I've been waiting for all year has arrived at Ulta Beauty. The time when we get our holiday discount. Of course, I've had my eye on many prestige items, but after planning for weeks I finally narrowed it down to my top wish list items.

1. LORAC PRO Contour Palette & Brush -- Ever since I first heard that LORAC was coming out with a contour palette, I wanted to give it a try. Their powder products feel like butter and their palette looked like a good match for those with fairer skin. Another bonus, it comes with a brush to contour with.

Editorial Fashion Shoot | UncommonGoods

We were given the wonderful opportunity of being able to work with the company UncommonGoods, a website that features and sells various items from independent designers, last month. They sent us two pieces to be featured in an editorial fashion shoot & review: Gaby decided that the theme for the shoot is: Alexa Chung + J.Crew inspired. I was very happy with that direction, as those are two major fashion inspirations for both of us.

With the holidays coming up you might want to check out UncommonGoods for gift ideas. Check out this page for gift ideas geared towards women. Why shop at UncommonGoods? They are a privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique and handcrafted gifts, and half of the products featured on their site are made by hand and are created right here in the USA. They celebrate and support the creative individual. If you are looking for general gift ideas for all your friends, look here.

Who Inspires Me [Fashion Wise] | Alexa Chung

I used to never get the hype over Alexa Chung that everyone had for her across the fashion and beauty world. Until I saw her in a video with Lisa Eldridge doing her makeup and my whole world changed. Well not really, but I did fall in-love with her style. Alexa's personality really shines through film and I just loved her British charm.

In fact, I want to find a vintage 80s/90s dress and style it how Alexa Chung would [I almost found one a few weeks ago at Goodwill, but it was wayy to big for me]. #lifegoals

Her beauty look is very 1960s a.k.a Jane Birkin which is a makeup style I dabble with from time to time. While her fashion style is all over the place, but is still very true to her. Always key when you are a brand.

"I like to dress in a way that's personal to me, and has a bit of nostalgia. If you're just dressing for all the trends, it lacks that essence." -- Alexa Chung, People Style Watch, November 2015
