Holiday Gift List For The Men In Your Life

Fathers, brothers, boyfriends, guy friends, and husbands. No matter what your relationship, men are notoriously hard to shop for. Us girls, we’re not so difficult. Jewelry, a cozy sweater or a delicious smelling candle, and chances are we are one happy camper.

This year I’ve rounded up some of my guy friend’s favorite picks so you can gift the man/men in your life something he really wants. From unusual shot glasses, to a superb grooming kit, to a pair of awesome kicks, this list is loaded with the coolest gifts for men.

Gifts Every Girl Will Adore


gifts-for-the-jewelry-obsessed

I don’t know a girl who doesn’t love jewelry as a gift. Not a one. Whether you are buying gifts for your mom, sister, BFF, or need to send this to your significant other for hints, this curated jewelry gift list has something for every personality type on your list.

For the rock ‘n roller in our lives there is Cynthia Desser’s Stingray tri-colored cuff, or Alexander McQueen’s Swarovski crystal and pearl Queen skull ring. Or, maybe you’re shopping for someone more classically refined? In that case, there is the vintage 1940’s bracelet with Cartier and Tiffany & Co. charms, or Pamela Love’s Gravitation stud earrings from her fine jewelry collection. For the person who lies somewhere in the middle, I suggest either Pamela Froman’s turquoise 18 K Crush earrings, or Finn’s Figa fist necklace made from coral with a dangling diamond. They are all beautiful and unique in their own right. Just like the recipients!

Stay tuned for more gift lists coming up this week!

Pamela Froman Turquoise “Crush” Earrings // Alexander McQueen Swarovski Crystal-Embellished Queen Skull Ring // Finn Figa Fist Necklace // Cynthia Desser Genuine Stingray Skin Bracelet // 1940s Gold Charm Bracelet with Cartier and Tiffany & Co. Charms // Pamela Love Fine Jewelry Gravitation Stud Earrings

Catching The Bright Light Of Silver


Silver Style Gucci Silver Street Style

I know I’m not the only one that needs a touch of lightness in their life these days. It was a hard week for half of America, and I am just beginning to be able to wrap my head around it. Reading, talking to friends, and listening to a lot of music has helped. What also helped was perusing street style pics, and catching all the bright light that silver reflects.

Naomie Harris at the Hollywood Film Awards, where she took home the Hollywood Breakout Actress award, looked positively aglow in her Gucci silver lame pantsuit. What also caught my eye were all the silver skirts (both sequin and lame) worn during the day with a casual bent to them. Whether paired with Converse suede sneakers, oxfords, mid-sized heels or to the knee boots, all looked smashing! And, who doesn’t love a silver leather bomber jacket with red and black knit trim detailing. When paired with red it read like a breath of fresh air!

Make A Statement

There are those for which “making a statement” in their lives comes easily, and then there are those who find it much more difficult. They may not have the time or desire to post their objections and likes, political and otherwise, on social media , or maybe, they’re simply too darn shy, and like to keep their thoughts to themselves.

I suffer from none of the above, yet my preferred statement making method is via fashion. This season its all about the “statement sweater”. Sequins, ruffles, fringe and embellished sleeves have taken the sweater from its classic nature, and given it pizazz.

Pair any of the above sweaters with jeans and ankle boots and you’ve made your statement!! Voila. That was easy!

Fall Trend 2016: Luscious Velvet


PreenAlberta FerrettiGivenchy

This fall be prepared to channel your inner Ziggy Stardust. Last Autumn it was all about the velvet boot. This season the trend has gone viral….. its velvet everything! Designers can’t seem to get enough of its rich, chic look this season, and I can’t blame them, nothing says luxury like velvet.

The trend is not simply for evening, velvet blazers with denim or slip dresses worn over a tee are smashing day looks — Zara’s velvet toggle jacket, to be worn with everything, is on my must have list. What is swanker than a pair of emerald green cropped velvet pants? Not much. Except, maybe this Frame black velvet suit with cropped pants!!

Naples Spins Florals Into Glam Rock Chic

When I poured over the pages of Porter’s Winter 2016 issue (on news stands now) I fell hard for the glam-rock looks on Celine Bouly. Those Saint Laurent boots are divine!! Seeing Celine grace the streets of Naples – one of Italy’s oldest, most artistic and delicious cities made me wish I had spent more time there during my days living in Italy. The gritty elegance of Naples was the ideal backdrop for today’s urban makeover of floral prints.
