Two Outfits For The Holidays


I knew pairing local talents Larissa Martinez of truckee love. + Larissa's Chaotic Closet and photographer Christina Giardina would yield nothing but magic, and thankfully, I was right. Looking at the photos below, you wouldn't believe this was only a 30 minute mini photoshoot, or that Larissa was freezing her you-know-what off (it was 30 degrees outside!). We styled two outfits into the shoot, taking place on the gorgeous Truckee River right behind our store. Whether you're attending multiple holiday parties or need an outfit for both Christmas and New Years, these pieces make the perfect festive outfits. Everything can be found in our boutique, including that sumptuous velvet emerald chair!

From Larissa: I had THE BEST time freezing on the shore of the Truckee River with two of the most talented women Truckee has to offer. We had so much fun playing with the natural landscape that we are lucky enough to call home alongside some incredible pieces that anyone would feel amazing in.

Look #1: Sparkle & Shine

For this look I wanted to incorporate some of our rock 'n roll pieces with sophisticated glamour. Larissa wears the pieces perfectly. All can be shopped in our boutique (the leather pants are from her own personal collection). Wear this look for a romantic New Years Eve dinner or a Christmas gala with your girlfriends.

From Larissa: This look had me feeling fabulous in the sequin top from Single that is an absolute showstopper! Feminine and beautiful with a super fun edge. The Art Deco shapes and colors pop and would look incredible when lit by the twinkling lights around town. Paired with long pants and an amazing faux fur jacket, you are sure to sparkle and stay warm all night.

Look #2: Holiday Glam

I can't get enough of this look. There's something super sexy about pairing a long feminine silky dress with an oversized coat, baring just enough leg to keep it flirty. All of these pieces can be found in our boutique, including the amazing jewelry! I love how Larissa's teal hair matches the couch.

From Larissa: This look had me feeling like a classic glamour girl. The plunging neckline of the beautiful Scotch + Soda dress plays perfectly with the ultra long skirt. Perhaps the best part of the dress is that it has pockets... who doesn't love a dress with pockets?!? The Calleen Cordero platform wedges were supremely comfortable, even when playing on the uneven, rocky Truckee riverbed... I can only imagine how amazing they would feel on the dance floor!
