The Perfect Gift

I don't care what woman in your life you are buying for, you really can't go wrong with a great scarf. Like a statement necklace or a fabulous belt, a scarf can completely transform an otherwise boring outfit. Not only do they provide warmth in the chilly winter months but they can add an unexpected pop of color. I believe that much like shoes a handbags, a woman can never have too many scarves. If you are looking for a winning gift try one of these gorgeous scarves that surely won't disappoint.

Tis the Season....

....for holiday parties and thus, holiday party attire! Many women get very stressed at the thought of having to yet again find something to wear to that office party or neighborhood event. I think you should embrace the season and consider it an excuse to add bright color or sparkle to your wardrobe. I know a lot of women shy away from the color red, but it truly looks great with so many skin tones. Plus, you can double dip and wear it again in a few months for Valentine's Day! I have included a sampling of my favorite holiday festive pieces.

Everything Old is New Again

Your grandmother will be the first to tell you that tweeds never go out of style.  Each winter they come in a variety of patterns such as herringbone, houndstooth, plaid, boucle and twill.  These classic pieces keep you warmer on those chilly winter days and most styles can easily go from the office to a night out on the town.  The cropped tweed jackets look great with jeans and heels and I recommending wearing the skirts with riding boots.  If you are feeling extra daring, you could mix with leather as shown in the photo below.
