Holiday 2015 Wish List

In anticipation of Cyber Week, we’ve rounded up our top gift picks (to give, or receive) for 2015.

First up, GOLD & GLAM:

Gift-Guide-2015

1. LOREN HOPE LUCILE NECKLACE IN CRYSTAL • Bring on the ice, ice, baby!

2. SYDNEY LARGE ZIP CLUTCH by FOSSIL {Also check out the SYDNEY ZIP PHONE WALLET & RFID ZIP PHONE WALLET} • I’ve had this wallet for 2+ years in red and ♥ it! Ready to go for the gold.

3. TORY BURCH METAL LOGO STUD BRACELET {Have a Fitbit? Check out the TORY BURCH METAL HINGED BRACELET} • P.S., Santa, I could really use a Fitbit…

4. MARIPOSA EAR JACKETS from BAUBLEBAR, only $32! • I’m typically not into trendy jewelry, but these are gorgeous {and appear to be pretty timeless, too}.

5. Q GRANT CHRONOGRAPH WATCH by FOSSIL • Form meets function. This stylish watch is Bluetooth smart-enabled. The built-in activity tracker lets you know how many calories you’ve burned and steps you’ve taken!

6. S’WELL SPARKLING CHAMPAGNE STAINLESS STEEL WATER BOTTLE • I have the 17oz bottle and use it daily! Stocking up on a few more as gifts. Stay hydrated, my friends!

7. BRASS STAG BOTTLE OPENER FROM ANTHROPOLOGIE • Speaking of hydrated… this darling piece of decor doubles as a bottle opener. Could you ask for anything more? {Ok, ok, if you need a corkscrew, let us recommend the RABBIT. And you could probably use the VINTURI DELUXE AERATOR SET, too.}

8. TORY BURCH AMY PUMPS • These shoes were made for… holiday parties! A nice chunky heel is classic and chic, while keeping you comfortable.

Now on to Nordstrom. You can easily get LOST in the selection of merch offered by our favorite “Free Shipping. Free Returns.” retailer. We’ve combed through Nordstrom.com and selected some practical picks for holiday 2015:

Norstrom-Outfits [From Left to Right]

1. SLEEPY HOLLOW TURTLENECK SWEATER BY CUPCAKES AND CASHMERE • {Looks like Cream is SOLD OUT — Shop similar styles at L.L. Bean} • Trust us on this one, fishermen sweaters NEVER go out of style.

2. SOLOISTE FEATHER HEM LACE BODY-CON DRESS • Doesn’t it look like a million bucks? It’s from the Juniors section, so size up and save some serious $$$.

3. SCALLOP FRILL TEE • Frivolous, but necessary, am I right?

Nordstrom-Gifts-2

[From Top to Bottom]

1. LEATHER MATINEE WALLET BY TED BAKER LONDON • So many color options, what’s a girl to do?

2. DEBORAH LIPPMANN ‘ROAR’ NAIL COLOR Great gift idea for when you have fancy friends, but you’re not a millionaire yet.

3. MICHAEL KORS BRACELET WATCH • I honestly can’t decide between this and the Fossil Q… Can you?

4. MARC BY MARC JACOBS NEW Q NATASHA CROSSBODY BAG • I’ve had my eyes on this ‘prize’ for years. Should probably make a move now, since rumor has it Marc by Marc Jacobs is shutting down {i.e. nothing will be under $1,000 ever again…}

Best-Faux-Leather-Leggings
And last but not least, the best faux leather leggings you ever did see/wear/experience: LYSEE FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS • Just got these – worn them ONCE and can’t tell you how many people have stopped me to ask, “Where did you get those pants?” Best part is, they are basically leggings // extremely comfortable!

Pro Tip: Wear a tunic / longer top if you don’t wanna look like Sandy from Grease.

These Kate Spade Surprise Sales Get Me Every Time…

So Kate, she’s great, but all of these amazing sales are both a blessing and a curse. A blessing, because of the incredible deals, of course, but a curse because I simply can’t resist! While I’m trying to cut back on spending (because I have a house and wedding to pay for this spring + summer — eeek!), these sales make it really really difficult to say “No.”

So, I didn’t. But rather than buying a new handbag (I actually just had to a purge a few that I adored but knew I would not use probably ever again), I opted for some small accessories. I purchased two pairs of these Gumdrop Earrings (practical, so practical – back me up on this purchase!).

I’m actually wearing a beat up pair of Gumdrop Earrings right now. I’ve worn them every day for the past 2+ years and I ♥ them. Which is why I figured it was time for an upgrade – a shiny new set of studs, and a spare pair. I actually planned on purchasing these during the last KSNY Surprise Salebut I hesitated (you must never hesitate!) and of course they sold out.

So, here’s the skinny on the good stuff from the Kate Spade Surprise Sale – Feb 2015 (ok, it’s all good stuff, but this is some really good stuff) because it will sell out–and the sale ends in 2 days, so hustle people!

This Mod Floral Thin Bangle is absolutely adorable and while I don’t really wear bracelets, I should probably purchase and keep in my “gift closet” because everyone seems to love bracelets, and this one is cute as can be. This Striped Bangle doesn’t even require a description–just look at it!

Kate-Spade-Bracelets

Speaking of cute…
These Eiffel Tower earrings + necklace? STOP. Just stop. Like, I’m not even going to get upset over the fact that their product listing misspelled Eiffel (unless ‘Eiffle’ is some new trendy term I don’t know about?) because they are so freakin’ cute. As are these très chic earrings. Go ahead, put French words on your earlobes. You know you want to.
Kate-Spade-Surprise-Sale

Ok, I’m really feeling ALL OF THE EARRINGS. These, titled the Gatsby Dot Huggies, are darling.

Gatsby-Dot-Huggies I pretty much like anything with Gatsby in it’s name because it’s almost always super fancy and vintagey. And Huggies? Well, they hug your ears, I suppose. [Not to be confused with Huggies diapers.]

Scrolling though the sale, you’ll also come across some clothing with leather elbow patches (oh, how I love leather elbow patches!), polka dots (naturally), tortoise print (obviously), anchors, and bows. Lots of bows.

What’s that? You’re in search of a new satchel? I’d recommend these pretties:

1. The Charm City Ostrich Provence – Oh! Fer cute!

Charm-City-Ostrich-Provence-Kate-Spade-Sale

Why yes, I’d love this bag for Valentine’s Day, that’s so sweet of you!

2. The Alice Court Kaiya – Boxier, with a bow, and also…CUTE!

Kate-Spade-Alice-Court-Kaiya

 

3. The Alice Court Diehl — Bigger bag, bigger bow, nice & neutral (cliff grey / bone, to be precise)

Kate-Spade-Alice-Court-Diehl-Sale

4. The Knightsbridge Constance* – It sounds posh. It looks posh. And structured. And vintagey. A+
Kate-Spade-Knightsbridge-Constance

*Not sure where they come up with these names.
Have you ever wondered how Essie names their nail polish colors? Me too. This piece of literature won’t answer your question, but it’s definitely worth a read.

Happy Shopping!

XO,

Marty

Last Minute Gift Guide: For the Beauty Lover

Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit quite like the promise of a colorful new eye shadow palette for my collection. It’s the one time of the year I don’t have to justify my want of designer mascara or sparkly caviar nail pearls because that’s the beauty (see what I did there?) of gift-giving season.

So I say away with you practicality! Pop open a can of Champers and treat yourself (and the ladies in your life) to something pretty, like one of these gems below:
1.. Because you can never have too many eye shadow palettes.
2.. This cult mascara stuffs stockings and changes lives.
3.. Save the calories for Santa and smell like an iced gingerbread cookie instead.
4. You want the men in your life to look good too.
5. Ultra-rich hand cream ornaments for your tree? Yes please!
6. Lip glosses in every shade for holiday celebrations and the year ahead!
7. Erase a year of skincare sins with this hypoallergenic Re-Everything Treatment Toner.
8. Ring in the new year looking looking fierce with this edgy 24/7 Eyeliner Collection.
9. Then glow all winter with this hydrating skincare set.
10. Countdown to Christmas with this advent calendar of festive nail polishes and sparkly goodies.

Black Friday Sale Round Up: Part II

Our first Black Friday post was more focused of self-gifting, let’s be honest.

Below we’ve thrown together some more picks from our favorite retailers with picks for him and her (you can hover over each product to see the info and click right through to the website!).
