OOTW: Holly Jolly Christmas

Jesse L. Brooks



We can't believe Christmas week is already here and that the countdown is officially on! 2020 has been quite a dark year and with social distancing being of the upmost importance, holidays have not felt like true holidays. Without gatherings, we still encourage a fabulous outfit even when celebrating at home. Since it is the holiday season we obviously had to make our Christmas look all about red, especially with our star piece. Capture the romance and creative vision of Alexander McQueen in this unforgettable and eye-catching faille dress. Made in Italy, the tailored design is shaped with pleats at the plunging bodice, which is topped with cape sleeves and falls to a full skirt. A red dress always makes a statement and the details with this one gives it an enchanting vintage vibe that we absolutely love. Bringing some colorful sparkle to our feet are Gucci's gold embellished sandals featuring a variety of multi-colored stones that can't help but remind us of the lights on a Christmas tree. Getting extra festive with the bag is a super fun beaded clutch, complete with shimmering holly and a sparkling reindeer. There's no better time to bling up the ears than with a dazzling holiday look, and these Baublebar arrow burst ear jackets serve up the perfect blast of shine. Now more than ever we encourage shopping locally as much as you can (and as safely),  that's why both of the finishing touches for our beauty look can be found right here in Lexington. Sweed's (found at CosBar) soft and subtle 'Caro' lashes offer just the right amount of eye drama without looking over the top. Last but not least is what every Christmas makeup look calls for - a beautiful red lip. Charlotte Tilbury's 'Tell Laura' shade is a gorgeous red with orange undertones that will give your mouth a mesmerizing plump, matte finish. Head over to Sephora to Fayette Mall to scoop a tube and see the vibrant hue in person. The holidays might look a little different this year, but remember to hang in there and have a fashionable 'Holly Jolly Christmas' at home and in style.
