"Gimme, Gimme!" Holiday Wish List

We all have one. You know, that secret list you would give the real Santa if you could. It is the list that is not at all made up of the practical things you asked for, or peace on earth or good will towards men.

I mean the wish list with the REALLY cool stuff on it that makes your heart skip a beat. Those things that you love just because they are beautiful and the mere thought of rocking them makes you feel that much more marvelous. 

Fabulous extended-calf Frye Jane boots to pair with a great Nic +Zoe cardigan? Yes, please! Natori pajamas in a luxurious, soft and silky fabric for a night in with a good glass of wine and a great book? Check! A cozy, fabulous, and soft Pendleton wool dress to pair with a fabulous Coach bag? Oh, Santa! Cat-eye Maui Jim glasses for looking Hollywood fabulous while rocking a Michael Kors lambskin moto jacket? Be still my heart! Close out the wish list with a luxurious and cozy Michael Kors faux fur vest paired with a BB Dakota sequined skirt and you are ready to show the world a little bit of your inner diva.

I hope Santa, Krampus and all the Magi bring you everything you want this holiday season, beyond peace on earth and good will towards men. I look forward to sharing more with you in the coming New Year!

Frye Fall Favorites

One of our most popular boot brands also happens to be the oldest shoe company still operating in the United States. With such a long heritage of making high-quality boots that last, it’s no wonder Frye continues to be at the top of our must-have list season after season!

With fall in full swing and winter well on its chilly way for most of the country, we’ve understandably got boots on the brain! But Frye is so much more than just timeless boots. They also craft some amazing handbags, wallets, messenger bags and even bracelets with the same artisanal attention to detail as their iconic boots.

Below are some of our top picks for fall:

Inspired By: Grown-Up Overalls

Let’s face it; overalls are one of the most polarizing trends right now. Although it’s true that certain overalls and overall pairings can run you the risk of looking kindergarten rather than grown-up chic, don’t dismiss this unexpectedly wearable trend just yet!

There are actually lots of ways to make the overall look very current and yes—even chic! Try doing a black and white pairing (like our lovely street style inspiration below) or opt for stark monochromatic white. If you prefer a more classic blue denim style, pair it with something dressier underneath, like a pretty silk blouse.

Check out our take on the updated, very of-the-moment overalls below!

Inspired By: Rustic Vibes

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

Today’s street style inspiration is still influenced by wintry weather and its many bundling-up possibilities. This neo-rustic ensemble is a great example of mixing prints impeccably with its fresh combo of buffalo checks and classic heritage plaid. It’s part log cabin, part downtown-cool in the best way!
