Fashion girl's guide to holiday gifting







I'm big on Christmas shopping. So much so that I'm usually have my gift list all wrapped up by November — no joke.

But no matter how far in advance I try to plan, I always seem to have one or two gifts left to the last minute ... and they're often for my fellow fashion-loving folks.



So with that in mind, I've put together a quick gift guide for fashion girls (and guys!). Most of these items are ones I already have — and would therefore readily endorse — but there are also a few things that are just straight-up on my X-mas wish list ... ehem, like the two Chloe bags.

So without further ado, here are my 10 top gift ideas for the fashion girl.

1. 


$795
Chloe bags are the it carrying items of the street-style set, and I have to admit — I want into the club (who doesn't?). I prefer this mini Marcie or the Faye bag below to the overpopular Drew bag. Because while I like to have an 'It' bag, I don't want to have the 'Over It' bag. 

2.

$59.95
There are a lot of things to love about this dress: the mock turtleneck, the figure flattering ponte fabric, the midi length ... the list goes on. While I would suggest buying this for a gift, I would also highly recommend picking one up for yourself too. And it's made in Canada! #justsayin

3.

$38/each
These are so cute — and won't break the bank. Bag accessories are having a big moment right now, so they have the bonus of being very on trend. #winwin

4.

From $220
If you're looking to gift an item that's sure to get a lot of wear, these boots would be it. The pointed toe and slight heel mean they're sure to fit into virtually any style situation. And, who doesn't love black boots? I mean, really. 

5. 

$25
I'm big on beanies ... or toques. I think they can look effortlessly stylish when they fit well. (Yes, even hats need to fit well!) This beanie has a very forgiving shape for those of us with larger heads. No sausage hat here. Thankfully.

6. 

$1,390
This bag looks so fresh and modern to me — even though it's a heavy riff off the bags of the 70s. But what's old is new again, right? 

7. 

$100 for 50ml
We've all fallen in love with the iconic Chloe perfume at one point or another. But I actually prefer this slightly rosier eau de toilette. It still has all the style of the original fragrance, with a touch of timeless glamour, courtesy of the romantic bloom. 

8. 

$299
Ok, full disclosure: This Bench coat wasn't really my first pick. This one was. But I couldn't find a good image of it, so I went with the above pictured one instead. I love a good parka-type coat, and factor in quality faux fur accents and I'm basically in love. So will your fashion fan — I guarantee it. 

9. 

From $150
I couldn't find these shoes online because they're pretty new. But in any case, a style like these can be oh-so versatile. They really are a work-to-weekend shoe. And who's not in need of one of those?

10.

$39.95
Last but definitely not least is this simple black turtleneck. I have like five of these, I kid you not. (See me wearing one here!) They fit well, are easy to wash and they don't fade. I mean, there's not really anything else I could ask for. Well, other than an affordable price, which these have too.

Happy holidays and even happier shopping!
