The Holidays Are Coming…..

People say you either love or hate the holidays… what’s not to love? I especially get very excited about Christmas, since I was so small I remember the excitement of going to sleep on Christmas Eve and wondering what time Santa would come and leave my gifts under the tree… Oh what a mystery it all was when I was so small. Now I am all grown up with not only children of my own but grandchildren and I still love the days leading up to the 25th.

My only dilema this year is what to buy everyone, then Lord and Taylor and the Accessories Council came to my aid with a twitter party to show case some of their ideas, so here we go.

My sister would love, love , love the Vince Camuto Jennah Cross Body Bag, which as she travels a lot I know she will use to carry all her valuables in, passport, purse, keys, tickets and at only $148 it is an absolute steal.

Next up was the Swarovski Studio Bracelet featuring black calfskin and woven cords adorned with Swarovski crystals in a variety of colors, it comes with a button closure and is perfect to be anyone’s arm candy. I love to stack my bracelets with different colors and textures and this will be just the gift to give my daughter in law. It is a bargain at $90

Arm Candy

Watches, you can never have enough time pieces, they are the ultimate accessory and I love the collection at Anne Klein, classic and elegant. This particular watch is over sized and comes in a rose gold toned frame and has brilliant, clear Swarovski crystals. The smooth white leather strap is adjustable to fit any size wrist and retails at $75, my mum will love this gift.

Now my husband looses at least one pair of headphones a month and so this next gift was the best idea ever for him the Swarovski Crystal adorned retractable ChicBuds, they are a mixture of fashion and function and come with a clip so that they can be attached to your jacket or coat. A totally stylish music listening experience. Although the ones I picked are a little too girlie for my OH, this means I can gift them and then borrow them! they retail at $40 and come in many different colors and styles. Now excuse me whilst I kill the neighbors with my singing !

My favorite gift which actually I am giving to myself is the Jessica Simpson Panama Hat by Collection 18 I adore this wool hat, I have a hat stand full of different hats for all occasions and moods! This hat is 100% Wool and has a real feather and a traditional grosgrain band, it comes in 3 colors but I am glad I got the black one which I can match to so many different outfits. At only $58 this is a complete steal.

The ultimate in Hats

I love Lord and Taylor and never miss their friends and family sale, in fact I never miss the opportunity to pass by and check out what is in store if I am in the city, so imagine my delight when they gave me a VIP gift Card for 25% discount, so my big shout out goes to LORD AND TAYLOR !!! Forgive me now I have to run and get the rest of my Christmas gifts and of course I will be going to….. Lord and Taylor!

I am a Lord & Taylor VIP

I have a good feeling this year will be a very Merry Christmas…..
