What I want to be wearing..

This weekend I was scrounging around my wardrobe for something “Festive” to wear to a Holiday party and I really wanted a pair of sparkly, patterned or plaid pants to wear with a white silk blouse and my new L.K. Bennett flats (below) or a red suede pump for a pop of color.   I saw the pants all over the place last year and did not buy them. Now when I want them I can’t find them!  Ugh! So I went on the hunt and found a few (on sale!) on The Outnet.  Now if I could get them for this coming weekend…

Best No Show Socks!

I gave you a little preview of these socks from Rhone Apparel in my Men’s Gift Guide but, it didn’t really do them justice. They are super soft, comfortable and the stretchy fabric feels amazing.  They have loads of colors to choose from and are having a special bundle offer on-line.  I grabbed the below bullet-ed information from their website because they say it much better than I ever could:

  • Silicone pad in heel to prevent slipping and blisters 
  • SilverTechTM to keep your feet anti-odorant and anti-bacterial
  • Seamless construction to keep annoying seems to a minimum
  • Diamond mesh and ribbing for extra support

Grab a pair, or bundle, for Stocking Stuffers.  I promise your families’ feet will thank me…

Look I Love!

I have Princess fever and while I did not get to see Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, up close and personal, I did watch from afar as she brought grace, style and color to a very wet New York City day.  Amid a sea of dark colors, her pink coat was a ray of sunshine.  I loved it!  I am going to take a page out of her book and find a fabulous pink coat!

Gift Guide: No Limits

I don’t know if you noticed, but I have been dropping hints all year long for what I want for Christmas. Just in case you missed it, I complied some items I have previously talked about and some new things I have on my list.  I really need a new wallet and I like how this one has a coin purse that opens up. I would love some new monogrammed bed linens and I have always wanted a Burberry trench, now that is one item every gal needs in her closet! My current Love,Alex bag is a favorite but it doesn’t hurt to ask… I am coveting this larger, softer structure…in of course black.  I hope you like my picks and if so, mark what you like and forward this post on to the ones who need to know….

Gift Guides: for the Guys

I am back with more gifts for your guy! I know how hard it is, they don’t have as many options as us gals, but you can still give them something they will love.  My husband helped me out with these picks and turned me onto three great brands: Stio, Ibex and Rhone Apparel. All three have interesting stories and philosophies. Stio and Ibex are outdoor apparel companies located in Jackson Hole, WY and Vermont respectively.  Considering where they are located, they should know something about creating clothing for winter sports. For all my local friends and readers, the other brand is Rhone Apparel, based in New Canaan, CT. Surprise your guy with a great new find and then forward this post to the other guys in your life, they might discover clothes and gear that work for their leisure, sport and outdoor endeavors!
