J. Crew holiday gift guide
26 Nov 2011
The people over at J. Crew prepared lots of surprises to make it easier for you to shop with them. Besides gender and age targeted gift guides, they also managed to gather some interesting people together and ask them would they would like for Christmas, from the J. Crew store, of course. The result is a series of wish lists/gift guides that are surely going to inspire you. Some of the people who were asked to put together a wish list are Martha Stewart, Lauren Hutton and Selima Salaun, each showing their own personal style while browsing the versatile pieces from J. Crew.
DKNY Winter 2011 – 2012 collection
25 Nov 2011
The Fall-Winter 2011 ready-to-wear collection consisted of masculine-inspired clothes, beautiful outerwear with a focus on capes, warm tones like orange, red and ochre combined with hot ones like pink, classic prints and an overall street style. While we loved the collection and found it stunning, we also like what they have prepared especially for winter: the Winter Wonderland line. It’s a small and warm line that you’re gonna love, not only because it’s perfect for this time of the year, but also because today – on Black Friday – everything is 50%.

Gift ideas for every budget
16 Nov 2011
With the holidays just around the corner, we’ve already started thinking about decorations, three-course meals, taking the time off from work and, of course, gifts. Whether you have a lot of money to spend, or you’re tight on the budget, we found some things that we think you might like. Accordingly, we separated our gift ideas into gifts for men and gifts for women, each section having a subsection for cash (things under $100, that you can easily buy) and credit (splurge! a nice gift and a smile on someone’s face is more important than money). There’s also a small section for children, but more on that later.

Blanco clothing Christmas campaign
10 Nov 2011
It may not be the season to be jolly – yet – but several brands have launched their holiday campaigns, look books, or they’ve been at least teasing with sneak peeks of what’s to come. Some say it’s never too soon to start shopping for Christmas, to make wishlists or at least lists of gift ideas for your loved ones. We don’t completely agree, but we agree that November is a good time to start. Even though it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, you can start thinking what you’ll wear for the New Year’s Eve party, who you’ll kiss under the mistletoe and what presents will rest under the Christmas tree.
