is truly an online shopping gem, stocked with unique designers at affordable prices. An amazing alternative to seeing yourself coming and going in the same Urban Outfitters sweater all winter! But what really drew us in was Koshka’s extensive selection of funky socks and tights. These styles are perfect for jazzing up an otherwise basic look and making it a little quirky and fun. And most retail for $19 to $77, so you won’t spend your entire holiday budget on one wardrobe update. Go shop now at!koshka_sock_boutique_thumb.jpg

obey_oljk148_exp-2.jpgWhile browsing around on 80s Purple (one of our favorite websites for scoring cool styles from up and coming brands), we came across this leatherette moto jacket by Obey that’s so right now. The built-in zip up fleece hoodie will keep you warm and cozy during chilly fall weather, and the different color sleeves are right on trend. The price is also right - at just over $100 this style is a steal!

Obey Women’s Jump Street MC Jacket - $103 at

Excuse the play on words, but we are quite enamored with the line Smitten NYC. Mixing retro  details with modern cuts, the collection is inspired by the intoxicating love found in 1940s romance comic books. The result is very wearable, with pieces like basic sweaters, vests, and dresses perfect for layering with all your favorite fall trends. Items cost around $30 to $200 at

Finding that perfect unique, personalized, and stylish gift for everyone on your list can be so difficult! But you can cross at least one lucky lady off your list after you check out these vintage bracelets from Washington D.C. based jewelry designer Libby Diamant

Made from 14k gold, the classic bracelets are available with a variety of names (just check out Diamant’s online shop to see if she has yours). At $12, it’s a steal for the perfect gift soon to become a staple part the receiver’s look!personalized_affordable_gifts_thumb.jpg

dconfetti_etsy_shop_thumb.jpgWe love hunting through Etsy for new shops and designers to follow, and this week the Poland-based shop Deconfetti caught our eyes with its colorful, unique handmade accessories. A crochet necklace that doubles as a neckwarmer ($25) is the perfect way to inject some color into your winter style. A linen and bead statement necklace ($95) is both funky and chic, as well as one-of-a-kind. Other styles we are coveting are a set of blue crochet bangles ($45), a red rope bracelet ($15), and fingerless knit mittens ($30) in a pretty shade of green.
