Holiday Wine

Bringing a bottle of wine to a holiday party for the host is always the perfect gift.  It’s so perfect, that you’ll probably be one of many to bring the same gift.  Although some (like me) will not mind bottles upon bottles of wine, it would be nice if your bottle stands out from the rest.

One way to do this is by dressing up your bottle.  Yep, dressing it.  I’m not talking about the usual rectangular bottle gift bag in a holiday red/green color scheme.  I’m talking about using wrapping faux fur around the neck of the bottle and pinning it with a cute pin/brooch.  I did this last year – doesn’t it look so cozy all bundled up?



Another way is to gift a wine accessory, along with the bottle.  Items, such as stoppers and collars will be used long after the wine is gone.  I found some practical accessories at True Fabrications that are sleek and shiny.  Perfect for the holidays!


Row 1: (1) Black/White Flexible Wine Stoppers, $15.99 (2) Chrome Wine Drip Rings, $4.49
Row 2: (3) Chrome Wine Foil Cutter, $4.99 (4) Metal Plated Wine Collar, $7.99

Wipe Your Feet

Simple idea for the entry way (or mud room). Add small pebbles to a plastic or rubber tray for storing winter/rain boots. This way, the boots can dry in a super fashionable way.

Fashion Trend: Big Cozy Cardigans

If you buy into one trend this season, please let it be the big cozy cardigan.  You will wear it ALL winter long!

Although it is very easy to get lost in a giant sweater, it is also very possible to wear it with style.  The key is to pair the over-sized cardigan with form-fitting and monotone pieces, like dark-washed skinny jeans or a body-hugging black long-sleeve tee.

Here is a cardigan I scored at the Gap, paired with simple silhouette pieces.

And here are some other big cozy cardigan favs.
Row 1: (1) Patterson J. Kincaid Chunky Knit Cardigan, $198, Nordstrom (2) Marled Cocoon Cardigan, $79.50, LOFT
Row 2: (3) Beautiful Knit Sweater, $24.80, Forever 21 (4) Stella McCartney Sweater Coat, $1,445, Neiman Marcus
Row 3: (5) Cotton Cable Short-Sleeved Pullover, $58, Victoria's Secret (6) Cashmere Blend Sunday Cardigan, $198, Banana Republic

Nothing TOO Crazy!

In case you are in a SUPER giving mood this holiday season, here are some fabulous (read: outrageous) gift ideas from Neiman Marcus.  I mean, what recession!?!

How about treating your family to a Tory Burch Family Chariot Electric Tricycle.  It's only $4,500,  Or just get your kids an Edible Gingerbread Playhouse by Dylan's Candy Bar.  A small $15,000 check will cover it.


Thinking larger?  How about a Tequila Avion Private Party by Colin Cowie.  For a mere $125,000, you get non-stop tequila AND Colin!  If you are looking for something that lasts past the holiday season, how about a Dale Chihuly Pool Sculpture Installation.  $1,500,000 should cover it.

Keep Calm and Carry On

I have seen these posters in the past (can be found here).


But never seen a huge "Keep Calm and Carry On" door mat! Quite the first impression.

Displaying vintage scarves

Vintage silk scarves are a great idea, until you always forget to wear them. Here is an idea to show off that gorgeous silk scarf!

Get a square photo frame. Iron scarf (if necessary). Frame the scarf. Display in entry way or bedroom.
