The holidays are fast approaching, and I thought a gift guide based on my favorite items would be interesting! These classic items happen to be some of my most cherished and covet-worthy belongings, and they would be delightful as a present to oneself, a sister, a close friend or a very stylish mother.
Like many women, I have tried on a ton of different blazers. Of all of them, the Smythe duchess blazer is by far the most gorgeous blazer of them all.
Any time I go to a work-professional event, this beautiful jacket is with me. It turns almost any relaxed outfit into something work-appropriate. Throw it over some jeans and a t-shirt, and you automatically look SO polished and hip.
This blazer is very flattering. Honestly, I would be SHOCKED if you didn't like this blazer on yourself. I find that Smythe runs small, so size up one size. :)
The Duchess Smythe blazer, here in black, here in white, and here in navy, is Smythe's most popular blazer design. I have never seen it go on sale in stores, and it has been counterfeited due to its popularity. :(
Well, I'm sure that you all already know about my obsession with Herve Leger dresses, and I'm sure that many of you also have a bunch of these dresses in your closet. Still, I can't help mentioning them, because I truly find them to be the most flattering head-turning dresses ever!
I love what they do for cleavage, the booty, and the torso! Plus, they are just so sexy in movement. Check out these Herve Leger videos to see what I mean. :)
Herve Leger stores have 2 major sales every single year where select dresses get marked down up to 70%. If you don't like waiting or if you want even bigger savings, keep an eye on Lollipuff. The selection and prices at Lollipuff are better.
Confession time. I have 6 Muubaa leather jackets. That's how much I love these.
Muubaa is a seriously under-rated brand. I'm shocked at how much I can snag these beauties... one of the reasons, why I have 6. Here is a favorite place of mine to snag deals on Muubaa.
Muubaa is a United Kingdom brand, and it definitely runs small. A Muubaa UK 8 is in between a usual US 0-2, even though Muubaa marks a UK 8 as a US4.
The close tailored fit and style makes any outfit cooler and edgier. The only negative thing that I can say about these quality leather jackets is that they are definitely more for fashion than for warmth. While the sumptuous lambskin provides some heat, these are not intended for harsh winter weather.
A Chanel bag really needs no introduction. Everyone knows Chanel, and a classic Chanel, modern or vintage, will be an exceedingly impressive present.
I love my classic Chanel bag, because it is SO MUCH MORE GORGEOUS than most other bags, and makes every outfit look better. And, unlike many other bags, it's one of those timeless styles that never gets old.
Last, but not least, are the Valentino rockstud heels. These heels are just dazzling to behold. They honestly look like art. Check out my Valentino rockstud pump review here.
Like many of the fashion items in this post, these shoes not only match but elevate most outfits. And, these stunning shoes are surprisingly comfortable too!
Hope you enjoyed this post! I'm thinking of doing some more gift guides based on my favorite things... Maybe a home goods or beauty edition? Let me know if you'd like to see a post on that. :)
Also, if you have a favorite fashion thing, please do share with us all!
