Raquel's Style 2 - Portland Prepster | Guest Post

I was originally going to post every four weeks or so, but four weeks from my last guest post would be the 30th, and I will be in Peru by then.  (I'm leaving the 22nd and will be back January 9th:)  So I decided to post it the Friday before I leave so I'd be able to share it on Facebook, and have a chance to reply to any of your lovely comments:)

With this outfit, I decided to represent my Portland.  I'm not sure how many of you know that I'm from Portland, Oregon, so I thought I'd really make that obvious and state it here.  Yup, born and raised in that gorgeous city.  I live out in the country now, but nothing will ever come between me and my love of Ptown.  And I live not far so I go there often.

One of my favoritest things about Portland is its inhabitant's fashion statements.  We're trendy, preppy hipsters.  I hope I do it justice.


Cuz 'Baby, it's cold outside' is one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs. <3
...and I may or may not be listening to it right now.  Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw's version is the best, okay bye.

Oh and don't worry, I have a cozy coat to wear over this outfit.

 I went for a thin eyeliner with soft red lips look for this outfit.
Eyeshadow / Estee Lauder
Eyeliner / Estee Lauder
Mascara / Maybelline
Pink undertone lipstick / Estee Lauder
Red over-gloss / Etsy store Parallel  

I got dreads recently.  The whole half underside of my hair is dreaded.  It's been a bucketlist wish of mine for a couple years now, and I am thrilled to finally be able to be part of the #dreadfamily.


What I'm Wearing:

Black spaghetti strap tank top / Walmart - $3
'Baby, It's Cold Outside' sweatshirt / Papaya - $16.99
Black knitted cowl / handmade by yours truly
Black leggings / Ross (clearance) $5
Black and red flannel plaid / Papaya (clearance) $12
Black coat / JCPenney (clearance) - $20

Black boots / Payless (clearance) $39

So there you have it!  Pretty much the only thing missing is a Dutch Bros salted caramel to warm my hands.

Merry Christmas, peeps!  Blowing lots of Oregon - and Peruvian - love and wishes your way.

- Raquel

Ulta Chic | '50s Glam

Hello lovelies! So, yeah, I've been kinda been missing in the social media world for almost a week now. Why? My family left last weekend for Florida for a Christmas vacation, I'm staying back 'cause of this thing called work. Taking about work, I've been picking up a lot of extra hours at work and today is my first day off, so I'm taking a little bit of time to create this post before heading to my Dad's office for a few hours to check the phone.

Hi there! I'm Hannah Barta, the fashion and lifestyle blogger behind Dance A Real. I'm eighteen and a sophomore in college, and I don't have a huge wardrobe, so my blog features a lot of remixed outfits that I've tried my hardest to buy on sale or in a thrift store. If you want ideas for how to use your pieces in different ways, hop on over! I love visitors :)

My Holiday Must-Haves

The snow is falling [at least for some people], ice is glistening, the Christmas lights are twinkling, the smell of peppermint is in the air, and you are rushing around getting ready for the Christmas day.

With the holiday season fully upon us, and I thought it would be fun to share some of my holiday must-haves. Once you've read mine, beside to let me know what yours are down in the comments.

1. Starbucks -- Once November hits and the holiday drinks have arrived, I find myself stopping by for a latte or a Frapp when ever I'm running low on energy, getting tired, or just get a hankering for coffee. Seriously, you could give me gift cards to Starbucks and they will be used up almost right away. *grin*

Christmas Outfit Ideas from Abbey | Guest Post

Hello, gals!

I don't know about you, but I love Christmas! And who doesn't adore the smell of pine trees, listening to Michael Buble's Christmas album, hot chocolate, the twinkling lights on Christmas trees, and you can't forget the bright + merry shades of red, green and gold adorning our homes, stores, and pretty much anything from packaging to clothing.

Today I have two outfit ideas for you that I came up with for Christmas, or any holiday event!

Ulta Chic | Holiday Cheer

Hello lovelies! It has been awhile since I've done one of these Ulta Chic outfit posts, and it isn't because I haven't been working, but because I've been working early morning [6:30am] or the store closing shifts [meaning it is dark both shifts]. haha...I could do outfit pictures after truck days, but lately I've either had to work my other job afterwards, or had something else to do so I would change immediately after work once I got home before heading out again. :p
