My Mom has always said that nothing gives her greater joy than to shower the people she loves in gifts, and as a result, my brothers and I are the same way. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting gifts (who doesn’t?) but I also have so much fun shopping for other people. Would Gillian wear that blouse? Would Sevan like that bracelet? Does Erin have this cookbook? These are the things that run through my mind every time I go shopping.

For the first installment of my holiday gift guides I’ve pulled together a number of gifts that I wouldn’t mind giving or receiving this Christmas. After all, the best gifts are one’s you wouldn’t mind keeping for yourself.

Holiday Blowouts

November 16, 2011

Thanksgiving is practically a week away, I’ve booked my plane ticket back to San Francisco for Christmas, and I’ve got about five parties coming up in the next couple of weeks - suffice it to say, the holiday season is here!

Fa la la la la la la la la!

As with every holiday season (see here and here), I’m on the hunt for a few new festive dresses to make the coming month that much more exciting. While last year my picks were a bit more scattered, this year I’ve narrowed my party dress wishlist down to three categories/trends: bold patterns, updated LBDs, and sequins and embellishments. Now comes the even harder part of narrowing it down to just one or two pieces!

Which ones would you choose? (Keep in mind the Thanksgiving dress always needs a bit of room around the waist…)

  1. Tibi Rococo Print Dress - $462
  2. Betsey Johnson Envy the Heiress Dress - $398
  3. Edun Marble Silk Chiffon Dress - $500
  4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Panthera Shift Dress - $358
  5. Topshop Tinsel Fringe Dress - $120
  6. AllSaints Char Dress - $295
  7. Rebecca Taylor Lace Bustier - $425
  8. Vanessa Bruno Athé Black-Beaded Dress - $360
  9. Anthropologie Wink & Rimple Dress - $228
  10. AllSaints Erodes Dress - $495
  11. Vince Sequin-Embellished Crepe Dress - $495
  12. Philosophy di Alberta Ferreti Embellished Lace-Overlay Dress - $322

I have always hated the “no white after labor day” rule. What poppycock!  Did you know that the rule was supposedly made in the late 19th century because wearing white clothing makes you cooler and you should thus avoid it in the fall and winter months? Well, most of us have air conditioning and heat now so I think it’s time we kick this fashion etiquette rule out the door. I love winter whites and plan on wearing them as much as possible in the upcoming months.

I figured I’d start this week off with an all white ensemble complemented by all white rooms (which I also happen to have an affinity for - see here) to fully embrace my petition against the no white rule. I understand that such an outfit also begs for lots of food stains but that’s a chance I’m willing to take.

Natural φ Disasters

Yesterday I (among many other New Yorkers) experienced my first New York City earthquake. I was sitting on the 20th floor of a building in midtown and suddenly my chair went shaky shaky and my computer went wibble wobble. Having grown up and experienced my fair share of earthquakes in San Francisco, you would think I’d be the epitome of calm in such a situation. But no. I pretty much went cross-eyed, shoveled a ton of chocolate in my mouth and was the first (and maybe only) person on my floor to evacuate the building. Better safe than sorry or just awkward? Still not sure.

With natural disasters on my mind, I decided to collage some of the images I found on the interwebs with the look I wore yesterday, otherwise known as the outfit I was wearing when New York City experienced an earthquake. Let’s hope I only ever have to have one of those outfits…

Isn’t amazing how a week can go by so slowly and then poof! it‘s Friday!? That was this week fo sho. Even though I didn’t have a lot going on in terms of events and meetings, it seemed like any time I tried to grab a second for myself another task came popping up on my to-do list, thus leaving me strapped to my desk chair. At least I got some time in to hang out with dinosaurs though…

The highlight of this week however, was last night’s Anthropologie event which was hands down one of the best events I’ve ever been to (*note this isn’t a sponsored post by any means - I seriously did have a fantastic time!). Not only was their showroom filled with candies that make Willy Wonka’s factory look like a dump, but the upcoming collection was beautifully displayed all around the space and my fellow bloggers and I each got to style and model a look made up of the new pieces! I’m always a little awkward when I have to pose for a picture in front of people I don’t know, but as most situations require in life, I decided to kick that awkwardness in the face and did my best not to pose with a double chin…

As for this weekend, I already have a ton on the agenda. Tonight my friend Ally and I are heading over to The Lot on the Highline (an outdoor spot filled with yummy food trucks and brews) and on Saturday I promised Finn we’d hit up the dog park and then I’m off to dinner with my favorite foodie, Erin!

What are you guys getting into this weekend? Something fun I hope!

Until Monday…

tanti baci!!
