UncommonGoods: Christmas Gift guide

uncommongoods-christmas-gift-guide

With Christmas being not far around the corner, in fact November is only really a couple of weeks away. Prep for present hunting is key as I personally hate to leave it to the last minute, as honestly it isn't my ideal way of christmas shopping. UncommonGoods are place where you can pick up some unique Christmas gifts and are a brand that are all about sustainability, committed to selling products that are not harmful against humans or animals. They also work with their suppliers, including artists and small manufacturers, to make sure that their products are made in a socially and environmentally responsible way. 

As someone who is becoming more and more aware of the social and ethical impacts of our spending (you might have noticed my increase in wearing vintage clothing/sourcing vintage), this brand is perfect for Christmas gift shopping. Whether that's shopping for gifts for your family or even your friends. Especially with it being the time of year to give back and support small creatives, by purchasing truly one-off and personalised gifts. As you can see this is just a small selection of some my favourite items from the site, ranging from intricate pieces of jewellery and accessories to some truly stand out pieces of homeware. UncommonGoods also ship to the UK and other international locations, in addition to the USA.

Red Shirt

Sporting a couple of new wardrobe additions in today's post, courtesy of my birthday last week. The main item being these contrasting panel trousers, from Zara that might I add have turned out to be one of the 'comfiest' pairs of trousers round. Especially as someone who is 9/10 working from home, i.e. sat at my computer for hours on end. Comfort in trouser form is key and these are up there with ultimate levels of comfort. The slightly tapered leg also allows them to be perfect for pairing with my beloved biker boots. Paired with the faux fur jacket, I can definitely see this being an outfit for more 'casual days'.

70s

70s style has long been an obsession of mine, and one which is a frequently incorporated into my outfits. Whether thats opting for something flared or even pulling out the suede fringe jacket, this era has a dear place in my love of fashion. With it being an era where the amount of style icons are endless, I often see myself frequently switching up who I'm looking at for inspiration.

Recently I've been drawn towards the male icons of the 70s including the likes of Mick Jagger and David Bowie. As someone who is far gone from 'girly dressing' (skirts and dresses aren't really my 'jam') these sort of icons are more 'relatable' with my personal style, as recently I've gravitated towards styling more 'tailored' inspired pieces within my wardrobe. Opting for simpler colour palettes and 'fluid' silhouettes.With that being said my 'references' are forever changing, which is one of the greatest things about documenting your style.
