There’s nothing like a great little skirt to really put you in the mood to have fun! That’s exactly what happens when I find a great fit and flare skirt. Being petite, I love to look for styles that are flattering and also make me feel like I actually have some legs to show off!
I find it extremely difficult to wear one of these without having the desire to twirl a little or dance (something you should know I do often on my walk home from the subway). I thought it would be fun to give a wintery twist on this for the Holidays and a more casual party look.
Shopping for guys can be really tough – my friends have been asking me for ideas for their significant others and so I’ve started making a list of the staples I usually think through when trying to buy anything for a dude.
Cool gadget — this shaving tool is incredible! It’s the Clarisonic for guys pre-shave and I can almost guarantee they will be thanking you for this (once you can get him to use it)
Bar/Drinking items – because let’s be honest, what guy doesn’t enjoy something related to this?
Watch — a worthwhile investment for a man looking for step up his watch game, perfect for a special occasion
Vest or Down Jacket – something comfortable and warm? Did I mention the vest is flannel lined and reversible?
Tie — every guy should own at least one really nice tie
Cufflinks or Tie Clip — same thing goes, you will wear them and you don’t need a ton of them but having a nice one is worth the investment
Something funny — the best way to a man’s heart is through his belly (food and laughter)
A little something for the office — My Dad loved framed photos for his office of our family, so what better than a little globe decor (that is especially nice after the work day ends)
If all else fails, go with something adventurous and gadget-y! They will be less likely to return it and there will be no issues with how it fits :). What are your go-to’s for shopping for the men in your lives?
Bells will be ringing the glad, glad news.. Christmas is right around the corner! I’m definitely in the festive holiday spirit and am excited about the next 10 days and everything in store. I mentioned on Friday, but it’s Holiday party season!
When I started looking for something to wear, I ended up turning to one of my favorite new brands, Reiss, for something perfect for this season. They walk the line of feminine with a little bit of edge so well and I’m head over heels for this UK line. Somehow their dresses just seem to put the ‘special’ in ‘special occasion’ for me and are true head turners.
Miss Elizabeth Arden said it best when she said “to be beautiful is the birthright of every woman” and this Holiday season I really wanted someone to be on the receiving end of just that.
I’ve teamed up with the Elizabeth Arden team to giveaway a beautiful moisturizing lipstick and the brand new Untold perfume to one lucky reader! The fragrance is light and feminine with a bit of floral notes, perfect for wearing all day and into the night. My favorite thing about the lipstick is how my lips don’t feel dry after hours into the day. Enter below, the giveaway will end tomorrow at midnight, good luck! :)
Holiday parties are one of my favorite parts of the month of December! I love a good excuse to get dressed up and go out on the town… not that I always need one :).
This is my first Christmas in New York and also my first Holiday party in my new job, and of course the question that always comes up is.. what are you wearing? I’ve found that there are so many different types of parties during the Holidays that allow flexibility in what you choose.
I started shopping at Scoop NYC a lot in Chicago when one of my friends worked at the store and quickly fell in love with their top of the line, highly curated selection. It’s one of my go-to boutiques, especially when they do sales. Right now there’s 25% off all sale, denim and other select styles right now. Some of my favorite pieces are these Stuart Weitzman d’orsay pumps exclusively for Scoop and this wishbone bracelet (only $75, a great gift!).
Stay tuned next week for more holiday looks and tips!
