Welcome to blouse's first annual holiday gift guides!

Now that Thanksgiving is over and we can officially play the christmas radio station without any embarrassment - we're thinking of finding that perfect something for that perfect someone to wrap in a big red bow.

This week -- blouse is doing gift guides organized by fashion style ... so whether she's an adorable old fashioned girl that loves arch support and is inspired by all things vintage ... or she's an easygoing hippie that loves the naturals and the neutrals ... or even an ever-so-cool rockstar that loves making a statement ... we'll provide you with clever, creative and affordable gift ideas!

First up ... (a personal favorite of jen's) ... The Old Fashioned Girl.

She's the one with glasses that prefers staying in with a glass of wine and a good board game. She's sexy and smart - a ruthless combination. Loves fashion ... but never sacrifices being comfy and cute. You'll find her in a lot of skirts, mary janes and cardigans. She'll also actually use words like "blouse" and "slacks" in real conversations. Her favorite movies usually lean toward comedies - but she is a sucker for a cheesy romance. Expresses herself through all sorts of creative efforts. Loves to travel ... but also loves coming home. Oh - and loves getting stuff*.
