Gift Guide Ideas: Footwear!

 
The holidays are right around the corner and no matter how you choose to celebrate, chances are you’ll be giving out your fair share of gifts. Of course, with less than two weeks to the big day you probably should have already done your shopping but just in case you didn’t, I’ve got you covered. The following is a guide of the best footwear you can get for your friends and family.

Timberland Classic 8″ Boot  

If you got down with Drake’s “Hotline Bling” this holiday season and were one of the hundreds of millions of people who watched the music video, you might have noticed that Champagne Papi’s shoe game. He was rocking the throwback Timberland boot that dominated hip-hop in the late ’90s and early ’00s. The Tims are great because a fresh pair looks awesome and if you keep them nice and clean, they’ll look good for years. If they should get a little busted, though, they just become a really durable pair of work boots. Tims are perfect for both guys and girls and even dad would be hard-pressed to complain about finding a pair of these bad boys under the tree.

Low-Top Sneakers  

And it’s not just boots that are the big thing for the season. Plenty of stylish folks live in warmer climates where it’s not always practical to go rolling around in a huge pair of boots. The simple and classic low-top sneaker is a low-maintenance and good-looking way to rock some style with your kicks while staying comfortable. There are so many great options that you can roll with. There’s the longtime favorite Air Force 1 low-top (or “low-force” as they’re commonly called) or you can pull some inspiration from this list of fashionable footwear that includes big-name designers like Givenchy and Philippe Model. Depending on the person you’re shopping for, you could consider getting a couple pairs, one light and one dark, so they can easily be matched to his or her wardrobe.

Bean Boots  

They never really went out of style, but this year the classic L.L. Bean boot is back in a big way. The Bean Boot (or duck boot as it’s also affectionately known) was introduced in 1911 and has been a staple shoe for outdoorsy types for well over 100 years. Now, the beloved Bean Boot is the hot item for the holiday season and has been selling out everywhere. Best of luck finding a pair if you haven’t ordered them already, because there’s a major shortage that’s going to leave a lot of disappointed people on Christmas morning. If you order now, you might get your pair of the hand-crafted boots by summer, otherwise you’re probably out of luck. 

These are just a few of the hottest items for the holiday season but we assure you that just about anyone would go wild to unwrap any of these. Good luck with your last minute gift-hunting and remember: it’s the thought that counts.

WishList: Saint Laurent – Sac De Jour!

Like most women, I have a thang for handbags…but one that I’ve been crushing on for a while now is the Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour Bag. Just one look at this beauty and I’m sure you would crush on it too. This gorgeous bag features tubular handles, accordion sides, compression strap with tabs, brass feet and embossed Saint Laurent signature. The interior features a central zip compartment, 2 slot pockets, 1 zip pocket and key ring with padlock keys attached with a snap. This Italian-made bag also has suede lining and removable leather encased padlock for added detail. I just love the simplicity yet unique details of this bag, particularly the accordion sides which is why it is part of my must-have accessories WishList. This is definitely a classic that I would love to own in every colour of the rainbow (a girl can dream right?!). Here are some inspirational boards featuring the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Bag.       (Images via Pinterest)

Accessories: Daniel Wellington Watch!

  Daniel Wellington (DW) watches have been in the for front of must-have watches for quite some time now and understandably so. It’s preppy style with a sleek silhouette gives the watch a very simple yet classic look. This watch speaks to a classic design suitable for all occasions. They are available in a leather bracelet or nato strap which are interchangeable. Although the look is minimalist, this accessory makes a statement on its own but when paired with other bracelets, it stands out even more. Check out a few inspirational boards featuring the DW watch.     I’m particularly loving the Sheffield lady watch in black or brown. It’s definitely on my wishlist. It’s such a stylish and elegant timepiece that complements any outfit.

Wishlist: Fendi ‘2 Jours’ Shopper!

IMG_4598
Do you believe in love at first sight?! Well, that exactly how I felt when I first laid eyes on the Fendi 2Jours Shopper. It is absolutely gorgeous! This shopper is a classic and I believe that every woman must have (at least) one classic handbag in her closet. If you are fortunate enough to spend some serious dough on this beauty then it’s well worth the splurge but a girl can always dream right?! This Fendi is big enough to carry all of your essential items and then some….(I love a roomy bag!). It has a great shape and it comes in many rich hues that can complement any outfit. Made in Italy, this shopper also features elegant hardware, a magnetic closure, 2 internal compartments divided by a zipped partition and logo-jacquard lining. Monogramming is also available for a personalized touch. Use the double handle to rock it on your arm like #armcandy or attach the adjustable shoulder strap to rock it over your shoulders. It’s a timeless piece, it’s versatile and oh-so-lovely. This iconic Fendi design is definitely on my wishlist. Here are some inspirational looks featuring the Fendi 2Jours Shopper!

Fantasy Wish List!

IMG_4178.JPG
Everyone has a “Fantasy Wish List” (things that you don’t need but uber want) and I thought it would be fun to share mine (a girl can dream right?!). Plus you never know, Santa might have me on his good list this year.
My FWL consists of…
▫️Of course, shoes! I’m absolutely loving these laminated high heel court shoes in gold and silver from Zara. They are a must-have in my books and under $70.
▫️More shoes! I’ve been in love with these Pigalle red bottoms in black and nude forever now and I look forward to one day rocking a pair I can call my very own.
▫️Sephora Favorites! Sephora always has amazing gift set ideas and 1 2 3 that caught my eye are Bottled Dreams Fragrance Sampler For Her, Give Me Some Lip and Give Me Some More Lip. It’s a great way to discover new fragrances and lippies and I’m all about that.
▫️Michael Kors! MK came out with a new Sexy Rio de Janeiro Eau de Parfum and I’m in love with its soft, feminine, exotic yet everyday scent. It would be a perfect addition to my collection.
▫More MK! I am due for a new wallet and I’m loving the simplicity and sleekness of this jet set travel continental wallet.
▫️Wool Coat! I’ve been on the search for the perfect camel wool coat for a few years now but this Zara belted wool coat in mink made me lose sight of the ‘camel-colour-must’. It’s absolutely stunning!
▫️Clutches! Cortnie Elizabeth, designer of Love, Cortnie handbags has created some amazing clutches and tote bags. I’m particularly loving this Ashleigh statement clutch, the RiRi II statement clutch and the Calico calf hair statement clutch.
▫️Click Clash Flash! I know a good camera is a must-have so why not go for one that is sure to take the most beautifully vibrant photos like this Canon.
▫️Last but not least, wine! I’m a moscato lover so when I heard that Christina Milian (along with her momager & publicist) created Viva Diva Moscato Wines in different flavours, I knew I had to add that to my list…with so many options to choose from like strawberry, mango and pineapple & coconut, you just can’t go wrong.

These are the items that made it to my FWL. What’s on your list this year?

Happy Monday!

Accessories: “Mise en Dior” Earrings!

IMG_4136.JPG
Accessories that I never rarely leave home without are my earrings and watch (otherwise I feel ‘somewhat’ naked…you know that feeling, right?). My go-to earrings are either studs or pearls so when I first laid eyes on these “Mise en Dior” earrings, I instantly fell in love. How gorgeous are these double ended pearl earrings?! It’s the perfect statement piece that graciously frames any face. I’m loving the bold asymmetric effect. The small pearl rests on the ear while the large pearl peers out behind the lobe. You can even opt to wear it alone, which gives you 2 different sizes to choose from, or as a pair. Who doesn’t love versatility?

Kimono Love!

20140805-235640-86200978.jpg
I’m so thankful for Chinese and Japanese culture for introducing the kimono to the world of fashion. This traditional garment, which literally means “thing to wear”, has evolved into something that is now increasingly stylized. The T-shaped, straight lined robe can be worn in different lengths, patterns and colours. These are more than justifiable reasons for me to add this item to my wishlist. Wouldn’t you agree?

Here are some of my fave looks:

20140806-002142-1302005.jpg
I’m loving the various prints (floral, paisley, butterfly), the different materials (silk, chiffon, cotton) and the attention to details (shape, option to belt, bottom fringes).

20140806-000531-331004.jpg
You can choose from different length options…short, midi or long…I’ll take them all!
