OOTW: Griswold Glamour

Jesse L. Brooks


One of our all-time favorite holiday films is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Now you might not think of the Griswolds as a super fashionable family, but leave it to us to find inspiration, even in Clark and Cousin Eddie. There are so many iconic scenes in the movie! For this week's outfit, we are bringing pieces of them to our look. 

Let's start with a local gem we found at the Kentucky For Kentucky store. They're known for cleverly turning all things pop culture into Kentucky-inspired designs for clothing and accessories. Not only is this sweatshirt filled with the unforgettable characters and hilarious moments, but it also references the current STAYcation we are currently in. We paired up our cozy Christmas top with comfy skinny jeans by 7 For All Mankind. 

Since this is a Christmas look, we obviously needed a hearty dose of red, and what better place for a splash of bold color than on our feet! Aquazzura's Palace 85 ankle boots are crafted from soft matte suede in statement red. This stiletto-heeled design cinches at the ankle with a tonal buckled strap, allowing for a lady-like ruffled gathering that emphasizes a sleek leg shape. We can't pay tribute to the Griswolds without bringing in Christmas lights. These handmade bulb earrings instantly take us to Clark's lighting battle and bring beautiful color to our accessories. 

Next, we tied in the family's extra large and extra sappy Christmas tree with Unbranded's adorable crossbody bag and a classic moose mug perfect for a little holiday eggnog. Rounding out this holly, jolly look is the hap, hap, happiest red lip gloss by Bobbi Brown. 

Since we're all making an effort to stay in as much as possible, we hope you'll find inspiration in our "Griswold Glamour!" We hope it enhances your holiday spirit.
