With Thanksgiving fast approaching, the consequent countdown to Christmas is officially in full gear. One of my favorite holiday gifts is the “Fruit of the Month” delivery from our neighbors. Each month, a lovely box of in-season fruit arrives at my door. But I think this monthly gift just beat it. Possibly by a landslide.
One can never go wrong with a boho-chic hobo. Well, maybe you could go wrong with one on the red carpet or at a black-tie affair, but let’s not split hairs. When it comes to daily life, a good leather hobo is always laidback, inherently comfortable, and can even add an element of effortless glamour. Like this one.
I have to admit: I hadn’t had this much eyeliner on since high school. But unlike back in high school, this smoked-out eye looks so natural and beautiful, not harsh. Throw out any preconceived notions you might have that lining your entire eye will close it up and make your peepers appear smaller. Actually, when lined and smudged properly, eyes not only look bigger, they have substantially more depth. And let’s not even get into the glow on my skin!
From home goods (including jewelry boxes and even tampon cases!) to hardware-light bags, few can work an exotic skin like Elisabeth Weinstock. Since 2002, she’s cemented and maintained her unreal hand with decadent anaconda. Her latest – and greatest – is a backpack that’s polished and sophisticated.
You could spend years searching for a pair of knee high boots that look good on you and still come up bare-footed, but I’ve finally met my match! What’s so great about these is that they’ll flatter just about any Snob (and you know knee highs are not one style fits all). Most tall boots make my petite legs look stocky.
How many unworn bags sit in your closet, mocking you, serving as reminders of money wasted? You’ve tried selling at consignment shops, but the issue with that re-commerce model is that you have to wait for someone to actually buy your bag before you see any cash. It can take weeks, months, even up to a year…
Forget trendy black and white for a minute. There’s nothing more luxurious – or timeless – than the juxtaposition of perennially chic black against rich, melting gold. It’s just the kind of decadence you want to celebrate around the holidays, when sequins, oversized jewels, and general excess are at their height.
