Fashion Friday: Fashiony Wish List

1. A little bling from Stella and Dot 

Who wouldn’t want to don this gorgeous Olivia Bib Necklace at this year’s New Years Party? Classy and a fab splash of color.

2. Classic luxurious coat
Coats make great gifts, as the sizing isn’t as tricky as something like a dress. This one is on trend, gorgeous and a terrific price. No one would guess this was from Target!

3. Fabulous handbag

I’m not sure I know any girl who would pass this up! For the best deals on handbags, head to Gilt. This Kate Spade GORGEOUS little beauty was originally $398 – but on Gilt its only $198! Those are the kind of deals you’ll find. (You can score killer deals on watches as well!)


4. Magazine Subscription

What better way to keep her updated on all the up-to-date fashion news than a subscription to Instyle Magazine? It’s literally the gift that keeps on giving.

5. Comfortable Sweater

Friends, it doesn’t get any cozier than cashmere. This particular color is called “Vintage Kelly.” And it has POCKETS. Why do I love that so much?

6. Make-up

Having the Ultimate Beauty Kit from Pixi Beauty is the equivalent to a stocked toolbox. Any girl who gets this will be set for the year.

7. Styling Tools

Don’t let curls go crazy this Winter. A quality flat iron will tame the most wildest of manes.

8. Sunglasses

The right set of shades can dress you up even on a “bumming it” kind of day. Also? When you wear sunglasses like these  Michael Kors, you can pretend you are a movie star. We won’t tell anyone.


9. Perfume

There is nothing better than showing up at a party, and everyone exclaiming, “You smell SO good! WHAT are you wearing?” This eau de Taylor Swift is particularly sweet.

10. Wrist Candy

Sure, it helps you know what time it is. But it’s just so sparkly
