Gift Guide For The Person Who’s Impossible to Shop For

We all have one. The person on your list that is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. The key with hard-to-shop-for gift recipients is to find something unique, useful, and memorable. Here are some ideas. A Game of Thrones coloring book. I wonder if there will be as much gratuitous nudity in the coloring book. That could be awkward — but still amazing! These wine glasses are unique and beautiful. I love the rose gold option the best. These hashtag coasters are #awesome. Everyone should have beautiful personalized notecards. These notebooks are the cutest, and also super useful. If there’s one thing UGG […]

A holiday explosion

Christmas in NYC is grand — but let’s just say that Christmas exploded on The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Va. Do you remember those cheesy Olan Mills portrait backgrounds from when we were kids? This background looks eerily similar to one of those. Except it is real and not a backdrop. And it is also really pretty in person. Merry Christmas!! I hope you all enjoy the day. xo Booties: J.

‘Tis this season to wear a giant red skirt

Every year, we kick off the holiday season “officially” at our dear friends’ beautiful house in rural Virginia. I always like to wear something super festive to this event — so this year I wore this giant red skirt. The silhouette is beyond flattering, and I definitely plan to wear this even when it isn’t Christmas. Shoes: Steve Madden | Skirt: Choies | Sweater: J. Crew Factory

So I have compiled 25 gift ideas, all from Etsy, to help make you the most popular gift-giver ever this holiday season.

Holiday Layers

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Unfortunately, it is also beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, too. Which means cold, cold, cold! Luckily I have these fancy and festive layering accessories my grandmother-in-law handmade for me! They are so snuggly and warm. I especially love the striped mittens. These photos were shot at Adam’s Christmas Tree Stand on 121st and 8th. The best little tree stand in Harlem, if I do say so myself. Shoes: LL Bean | Jeans: J. Brand | Jacket: J. Crew similar | Scarf, Mittens, Hat: Grandma

A Very New York Fourth

Since all the real New Yorkers were in the Hamptons/Jersey Shore this weekend, it was just me, my husband, and 30 billion tourists left in the city to hold everything down. Hoboken, NJ (right across the river from NYC) is the best place to watch the fireworks so husband and I hauled ourselves over there to get the best fireworks show possible. But first, it was cocktail time: I got this festive cocktail that was essentially crushed ice, syrup, and a splash of tequila (maybe). I switched to prosecco immediately after this was done. Then we made our way down to the […]
