Affordable Holiday Gift Ideas for "The Fashionista" on Your List #ThisisStyle #Shop #cbias

In preparation for the Holidays and as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® I have put together the perfect gift guide for the fashionista in your life. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client. #ThisisStyle #cbias
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us it's time to start making your plan of attack for Holiday shopping. I always say the earlier you shop the better. That way you can actually enjoy the Holidays when they are actually happening. Lucky for you I have put together a fabulous and affordable Gift Guide specifically for the Fashionista in your life.

My Tips For Gifting Success : My advice when purchasing a gift for someone that loves their fashion is to pick out accessories.  Unless you know for a fact what their apparel size, shoe size, ring size etc is, I would personally stay away from these types of items. You want them to enjoy the gift not have to worry about exchanging it for another size. Especially with the crazy long lines during the Holidays. Anything from statement pieces to more simple ones, accessories allow the giftee to wear and style them to their pleasing; making them the perfect present.

A fashionista can never own TOO many accessories! 

My inspiration for picking the perfect accessories comes from the 2013 Fall Fashion Trends. I love reading my favorite fashion blogs, magazines or heck even watching my favorite TV shows and being sparked with inspiration. The feel I went with for this gift guide is classy, yet fun and of course include versatile pieces that could be used in all kinds of ways / looks.

Sophia and I started our shopping adventure online then took the scavenger hunt to the store to actually see what we could physically find. We didn't find anything we saw online in the store but that didn't stop us from scoping out some amazing pieces. Check out what made the cut into the perfect 2013 fashionista shopping guide.
Tri-Coastal Hat Box - Adorable and great for packing other little gifts inside; this fabulously decorated hat box makes your gift 'the whole package'. Then after the festivities the box can be used on display as decor or a cute box to store scarves, memories and other goodies in. I have a Winnie the Pooh hat box that was given to me at one of my baby showers that I kept to hold all of my treasures of the kids over the years.
Studio S Infinity Scarf - Animal Print (Maroon) - Speaking of scarves check out this beauty. I love the pop of color along side the totally on trend leopard print. Sophia actually picked it out.
Studio S Black Jeweled Tear Drop Earrings - I fell in love with these the moment I saw them. Two seconds later a woman even came up behind me, complimented them and picked up a duplicate pair that was on the display for her self. These are definitely a hit !
Studio S Jeweled Chain Necklace - The 'IT' necklace. When I saw this necklace I knew it needed to be included in the line up. Long, great for layering or standing alone this necklace emanates the dark world of fashion with black jewels accompanied by a pop of sparkle and gold.
Bangle Sparkle Bracelets - We picked up these ones out of a clearance bin but there were a ton of other styles and colors to choose from. I chose these because - duh - they sparkled like crazy !
The cool part about shopping with Sears is their Shop Your Way Rewards program. A totally free program where you earn points for your purchases. Plus you will occasionally receive bonus points / coupons in your email !!

In the end just remember that a gift only becomes the best gift ever when it comes from the the heart. It sounds cheesy but it really is the thought that counts, so try not the think too much when picking your gifts out this Holiday season.
