We loved her on The Bachelor, and even more on The Bachelorette. And we’re delighted that this American sweetheart is, in fact, Canadian. (Otherwise she wouldn’t be overhauling houses on her third go-around on TV: Love It or List It Too…aka…Love It or List It Vancouver).
If you haven’t already guessed, I’m pleased as holiday punch to announce today’s very special guest editor: Jillian Harris. I’m also excited to announce her latest venture: Charlie Ford Vintage. This online home decor boutique is close to Jillian’s designer heart and carries everything vintage, from antique school globes to French gilt mirrors to cocktail rings. And let me assure you, Jillian’s eye for vintage finds is as impeccable as her eye for fashion.
Today, I’m lucky enough to share her guest editor’s list, a holiday edition full of gift ideas for your favorite gal pals or a little something for yourself. A little bit of fashion, a little bit of pampering, a little bit of home decor: Jillian, you really do have it figured out. Thank you so much for sharing your finds, both new and vintage, here at Celebrity Style Guide. Cheers!
