My 2017 Holiday Look Book

It’s finally here, one of my favourite posts of the year- 2017-18’s holiday looks! If you haven’t already noticed, or you’re new to my blog and haven’t had any reason to notice, I have quite the thing for anything festive. I kind of go all out for the holidays, and “go all out” as in every way possible one can “go all out”. This, of course, includes my holiday party looks. And as much as I loved giving you all an insight into my personal Christmas stylings, this year I’ve decided to create styles for every individual. But, if you want to see my holiday looks from last year, click here. And to check out my four Christmas looks for this year, keep reading below! 


The Sophisticated Gal


For the gal that prefers a good pantsuit over a dress any day of the week, this one’s for you! 

This ensemble is the perfect mix of velvet and pleating, and this gorgeous wreath by Fauna and Fern pairs ever so wonderfully, don’t you think? I kept the v-neck low and the pants hight to create a sultry and put together look. Classic black pumps and drop earrings gave it just the right finishing touches. Perfect for any gals’ Christmas parties that you and your girlfriends may have!

Is this not the most beautiful wreath you’ve ever seen? Don’t answer that, I already know that it is. Go give Fauna and Fern some love, all of their creations are just as stunning!

The Glam Gal


For the gal whose outfits aren’t complete without an accent of sparkle, this look’s for you!

Doesn’t this ensemble just scream Blair Waldorf? You have no idea how excited I am that her favourite accessory, the thick, satin brooched headband, is making a fashion come back. And, so of course I had to use it as an accessory in one of my holiday looks for the 2017 season; I figured it perfectly complimented this neon glitter knot dress that I have been just OBSESSING over lately. The pairing of these classic black pumps with this ensemble nicely coordinate with the headband, and allow all of the attention to be left to the details of the dress.

I am honestly head over heels in love with this head band and I am so excited to play around pairing it with different looks- both casual and formal!

I wish I could take credit for these locks, but I should probablyyy come clean and give it all to my girl Danille; she is the hair GODDESS. I literally wish she would move in with me so she could do my hair each and every morning. Not only would that make my mornings sooo much easier, but it would also leave my hair looking fabulous 24/7. Danille, if you’re reading this, would you mind at least considering it (ha)?!

The Feminine Gal


For the gal who’s all about PINK (regardless of whether it’s en trend or not), this one’s for you!

The embroidery, the pink, the tulle, the corset back. Everything about this dress is mesmerizing.

A huge thanks goes out to Out of the Blue for this stunning dress; not only is it the perfect shade of pink for the season, but it’s also super fun to twirl in!

Can we just talk about how insanely talented Shauna from MesmerEyezd Makeup is for a minute? She was the creator behind today’s makeup look, and I am so thankful that she was able to participate in this shoot.

Do you ever prolong washing your face at night because you’re makeup is just too good? Yah, that was me. I dreaded wiping everything off knowing that I wouldn’t be able to replicate it. Shauna, you really need to teach me your insane makeup ways!

And this embroidery detail is absolutely exquisite. I know that pink and florals are both super unconventional for the classic holiday look; however, with this year’s huge pink fad, and my love of embroidery, I find this dress to be the perfect holiday gala piece. Winter florals have also been in and out the past few seasons, and with the red accents mimicking poinsettias, I thought it a completely acceptable ensemble for Christmas this year.

The Trendy Gal


For the gal who’s always one step ahead of the fashion game, this look’s for you!

Ultra wide-cut pants made of satin paired with a sheer fringe top? Sounds like a dream come true to me. The perfect look for any office or work holiday party!

Yes this was probably a liability for the greenhouse, and no this probably wasn’t supposed to happen- but anything for the ‘gram, am I right?

Now I know I said that I was switching things up this year by incorporating looks for individuals of all styles and tastes; however, I didn’t say that I wouldn’t rock any which one of these looks myself! I don’t know whether or not that makes my fashion sense a bit scattered, but I refuse to isolate myself to one fashion preference. And my daily apparel is honestly highly contested by my mood that day; does anyone else relate to this?

Anyways, for this year’s Christmas looks, I was fortunate enough to collaborate with a bunch of super talented individuals… drum roll pleaseee: on makeup we had Shauna from MesmerEyezd Makeup, on hair we had Danille, for florals we had Fauna and Fern whip us up the stunning wreath that’s showcased throughout the photos, Out of the Blue provided the gorgeous pink tulle dress, and last (but certainly not least!) we had Jorja Coral Photography and Camryn Elizabeth Photography behind the camera. I know I say this in almost every post, but I am ever so grateful to be able to collaborate and create friendships with individuals who have such passions for their skills, especially around the holiday season. So here is a HUGE thank you to all of the above mentioned for making this shoot a possibility, and for just being all around awesome pawesome peeps.

And all in all, here’s to wishing all of you a joyous holiday filled with love, laughter, good friends, and even better food!

xo, Quinn
