A Very Merry Holiday

I love the holidays. Our family together, who come from all over the world, and as close as down the block. The food (mostly the cookies). Averting the naughty list and receiving the beautiful gifts on my nice list. Santa brought me a fab new laptop of which I am writing this post on. Maj bought me a stunning amethyst stone, for physical protection and mental clarity, hanging from a perfect 13" gold chain. I am so grateful and in a humble position to give. So, I give thanks And compassion. And the universal reflection that as life changes quickly around us, let us be kind to one another, and pliable to bend to the Earth's evolution. Here's to an undoubtedly adventurous 2012.

On the 3rd Day of Christmas

I love starting the new year off right with a few choice outfits that define my style for the year. Lordy knows I'm maturing when St. John is the store I'd most love a thing or two from. Their ad campaigns which first included Angelina Jolie and now the impeccable Kate Winslet, make an effortless knit and offer a streamlined style worthy of any Kate Middleton appearance. If St. John ain't yo' thang, ask Santa for a gift card to your favorite store, so you too can seasonally shop 'til you drop.

On the 3rd Day of Christmas

Every Christmas Eve, my thirty-something cousin Bobby dresses up like Santa Claus and brings our big, Italian family, a perfectly wrapped gift of pajamas. All twenty-something of us, who are now all over thirty years old, change into the PJs and head to bed to wait for Santa's morning bounty. I'm hoping this year, to get these luxe VS Afterhours Satin Pajama from Victoria's Secret. I love the Beverly Hills Hotel inspired stripes and the silky fabric perfect for opening gifts in.

On the 6th Day of Christmas

Trust me. Your hipster cousin or younger sister definitely wants a pair of colored denim this season. You'll be their hero if you buy these cropped Blank NYC for less than $50.

On the 7th Day of Christmas

If you're traveling this holiday season, a chic carry-on bag for laptop, book, and essentials is a must have. Buy for yourself or gift a visiting family member with this effortless prep tote. Extra points if you monogram for that someone special.

On the 8th Day of Christmas

Last week I hosted a lovely Vintage Chic tour with Cheap Chic Shopping Tours, and one of our style clients, Rachel Tipograph is a big wig with the Gap. We stopped in for a hello, and I fell in love with these very chic Stamped Leather Boots. They're discounted for the holidays so get walkin'.

On the 9th Day of Christmas

I ask for these Jonathan Adler Jet Set candles on every special occassion. The packaging is so stylish that I use it, by the front door, to collect our coins. And the musky, dense dew-y Big Sur sent, lit on my desk whilst working, is divine.

Scented Style

As a kid in the 80's, I owned more than one non-food product that was scented to smell like my favorite things. I had a collection of Strawberry Shortcake figures that were scented like their names such as Blueberry Muffin and Lemon Meringue. A book of scratch n' sniff stickers. And of course, the scented Swatch watch, my most treasured accessory. With a big style shoot happening tomorrow, I stopped into my local salon for mani / pedi and picked a bubble gum pink, that when applied, smells of actual pink bubble gum?!?! I'm smelling my fingers right now and sure enough - bubble gum! I can't believe it. It brought me right back to my time as a kid. And when I posted it on FB, and Julie said there were scented flip flops on the market, well, this product of the 80's couldn't resist. Yes, there are scented flip flops available. And sheets. And shirts. Who nose what else is out there? Ha.

I'm in love with my Boyfriend!

The bag du jour, the chicest treat to hit the trendy set, is the Chanel Boyfriend bag. Structured, classic, leather craftsmanship with a signature Chanel chain link strap and in a variety of colors and styles. Le sigh. I am in love. It goes perfectly with my Boyfriend Shirt from Sew, my J Crew boyfriend jeans and of course, with my actual boyfriend *wink*
