Holiday – Fave Gifts For Her… and Me ;)

Black Saint Laurent Tote for 'Gifts for Her and Me'

There are so many fabulous choices for Holiday ‘Gifts For Her’. Whether it’s a beauty product (see my post here), clothing or accessories, I always select items for this gift list at a variety of price points that I would love to receive as well. In fact, I already own many of the items featured below like the Spanx leggings. If I don’t already have them in my closet, they are definitely on my wish list!

Since we’re cutting close to Christmas, don’t forget that you can often buy online and pick up in-store to save time and avoid shipping delays and higher fees. And if you’re shopping for yourself, well… relax.

Gifts for Her (and Me)

Another gift idea that I absolutely love is “The Traveler Deluxe” from Beauty & the Box. Received it as a gift from the brand, I use it regularly in my studio office in NYC and especially when I travel. Shown set up in my hotel bathroom during Paris Fashion Week, it was the perfect beauty product organizer for my trip! (See it featured on my Instagram feed, as well!)

Holiday – Beauty Product Gifts + Essentials

Holiday Beauty Product Gift Sets

Christmas music started playing on the radio last weekend so you know what that means… the holiday season is officially here! In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing my gift guides. So get those lists checked off early and focus your energy on enjoying the festivities of the season! To start off is my gift guide for Beauty Product Gifts. There are a lot of gift sets that are made specifically for or during the holidays that are not available at other times of the year. Because these sets tend to be very special product offerings at a great price, they often sell out fast. Check these out first and buy the ones you love before they’re gone. Continue Reading →

Fashion Week SS20 Recap (PFW & More) – Part 2

Fashion Week Recap, OOTD - Faux Fur jacket and Agolde Jeans

To continue from my previous post (sorry for the delay!), fashion week in London and Milan followed in the same direction as in NYC. Highlights were also modern suiting, lots of color and an optimistic vibe. I particularly loved the collections by Roland Mouret and Victoria Beckham in London, and Drome and Seventy in Milan. As hoped, Paris Fashion Week followed suit as a grand finale to an upbeat season for SS20 with sophistication and excitement the way only Paris can bring. πŸ™‚ Continue Reading →

Tote Bags For Work and Play… Worth the Splurge!

Carrying favorite Saint Louis 'Shopping' tote bag while walking to work in NYC.

Tote bags are an essential part of my ‘everyday’ outfit look. Going to meetings or just doing errands, they are my bag of choice to hold everything that I may need in one place! Because tote bags are used regularly as well as in a variety of situations, I’m careful to select a tote that is classic, well-made and in a neutral/ versatile color. Most importantly, the tote needs to be lightweight. Continue Reading →
