Some ‘Gifts For Her’ Highlights

Whether you’re looking to buy a bag as a gift or for yourself, GiGi New York has a broad range of leather accessories to choose from at a price point that is very reasonable. Made with great quality, their products are fashion-forward yet timeless and classic.

I received the crossbody bag and phone wallet shown above as a gift from the brand. The bag is perfect on-the-go with the strap or as a clutch for date-night. Hard to see in the photo, but it actually has a gold metallic finish… perfect for the holidays and those parties! Also love the phone wallet as it is so practical! I often carry a tote bag going to work and work events, so having this as a separate accessory to hold my money/phone is so convenient. Useful as well as I’m jumping into my car for quick errands. 🙂

They are currently having a sale on their site, So head over and check out the pieces before it’s over!


Sweater and boots OOTD for taking home the Christmas tree

The Gucci belt I’m wearing (as well as shown in the top photo) is my favorite belt. I was trying to decide between this one and the Marmont belt. So happy I bought this one as it is more understated (although still a statement piece!) and more versatile than the Marmont. The gold tone on the buckle is light and can look silver which makes it coordinate with any metal that you’re wearing. Especially love that it’s not worn by everyone… 😉

Other outfit details:


My obsession with YETI started with the tumbler shown above. Why? Because it keeps my hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold, and it really is durable. But what I love about it the most is that you can wash it in the dishwasher (almost all competing brands say ‘handwash only’). Who has time to handwash?! Also love its beautiful, minimal design. Now I have the pink mug (shown in the photo) for my everyday coffee when I’m not traveling.

Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty Gift Sets + Nordstrom Giveaway!

Outfit wearing items from Rachel Zoe's Box of Style Fall 2018

Happy Holidays! Hope you had a great week. Below are some of my favorite Beauty Gift Sets to give (and receive!) for the holidays. I have, or at least tried, most of these products, and truly love them. Since most of these gift sets (maybe all…) are special gift items created only for the holiday season, they often sell out quickly. So if you’re shopping for a friend/ family member and not quite sure what to get them or just want to try the beauty gifts for yourself, check these out now before they’re gone. Oh, and don’t forget to scroll down to the end of this post to enter a giveaway to win a $500 Nordstrom E-Gift Card! 🙂 Continue Reading →

The week of Thanksgiving and it’s officially the holiday season! With all the yummy food opportunities, it’s a time to slow down and give thanks.

I will be posting gift guides in the next few weeks, but now is a good time to plan holiday outfits and get them on sale if you can.

ANDREW GN Ready to wear spring summer 2019 _Paris fashion week september 2018

As with many of you, Fall is that time of year when I’m the most excited about fashion. There’s something about the after summer ‘back to business’ mood mixed with a change to more fashion versatile temps that makes this season fresh and unique. And when I see a collection during fashion week that seems to celebrate the art of fashion as well as respects the craftsmanship of creating beautiful, wearable clothes, I’m especially excited. Andrew Gn Spring/Summer 2019 is one of these collections. Continue Reading →

Redemption Summer 2019 - Models walking for finale of runway show in Paris for Fashion Week

During Paris Fashion week, I attended the Redemption Show for Summer 2019. Having gone to their show last year as well ( see my post ), I was particularly excited to view their collection. Creative Director, Bebe Moratti, has a style aesthetic for the Redemption woman that is in line with my own, and based on their previous shows I expected a beautiful mix of elegance, rawness and drama.
