Holiday Gift Guide: Little Luxuries for Her!

I like my little luxuries - no doubt about it at all! Since we are in the giving season and many of my friend's husbands can do with some inspiration for spoiling their wives :-), here are a few of my favorite little luxuries.


Leather Trim Tees & Tops

During this time of year, there are tons of leather options from boots to jackets to skirts to pants. This year, I am really loving the subtle use of leather in unexpected places like collars, elbow pads, pockets and sleeves of tees and tops.  It's a perfect option for women who aren't completely comfortable wearing too much leather.
The tops are particularly appealing to me as I like the mixing of different textures.
Throw it on with jeans and boots and you have a stylishly sexy outfit!
Lots of options out there in a range of prices depending on whether its real or faux leather.
Here are some of my favorites....

Holiday Style: Sparkling Silver

This is one of my favorite Alice & Olivia dresses as it is the perfect combination of sparkle and ruffle. To make it holiday party appropriate, wear it with the season's hot color, burgundy, accessories. The Chanel Camillia brooch is gorgeous and would look awesome pinned to the waist. Keep your hair lose and wavy, add a dramatic eye and lip and you are bound to be the talk of the party!

Thanksgiving Table Centerpieces!

With Thanksgiving around the corner, its a good time to start thinking about your thanksgiving menu and table presentation. Whether you are serving a buffet style meal or a sit down dinner, its nice to have an inviting table. I personally love the rustic elegant look!

Still Time Left: Support the Cause!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.
There are still a few days left in the month so I have picked a few of my favorite pink products. A portion of the proceeds benefit breast cancer initiatives!

Holiday Style: Lady in Red

This is a great look for a cocktail party! Let the drama be all about the bright red dress. Keep hair and makeup neutral. Wear minimal or no jewelry but definitely a sexy pair of shoes and a nice, classy clutch.
