versatile_holiday_party_dress_lamixx_thumb.jpgHoliday dressing can be so stressful - what do you wear to the office party? What do you wear to that get-together with your high school pals the night before Thanksgiving? And what do you wear to meet his grandma? 

Fortunately, we found this amazingly affordable dress by Lamixx ($36 at Moxsie) that is a blank canvas. Armed with the right accessories from your closet (and a pair of seriously conservative tights for that grandma encounter), this number can take you from day to night with ease. You even have two options to wear it: as a boatneck style, or off the shoulder. 

Just pull a chic statement necklace from your jewelry collection and a haute pair of heels or sexy boots for an insta-chic outfit. For daytime style, jazz up the dress with a cute red or metallic belt. And lastly, don’t forget a festive clutch!
Frieda_and_nellie_wish_bracelet.jpgRemember friendship bracelets from camp in elementary school? Everyone would make a wish, and then wear the bracelet until it fell off - and when it did, supposedly the wish would come true. Now Frieda and Nellie is helping you relive those childhood memories, and maybe even have a new wish granted, with their “Love, Luck, Good Karma & 1 Wish” bracelets ($40 at Made with hand-dyed silk and sterling charms, each bracelet is one of a kind. 
aro_curto_jewelry.jpgAroc Urtu is an up-and-coming jewelry line formed by Lauren Bergman (who has designed jewelry for the likes of Judith Leiber and Harry Winston) and her niece, Sarah Lederman. The pair had amassed an incredible collection of stones taken from the shores of Bali, the Montana River, and even the backyard for their home in Bridgehampton. They use the stones found in their travels to create simple yet sophisticated pieces, like an emerald pendant and assorted stackable rough diamond rings.

colorful_fingerless_mittens_thumb.jpgFingerless mittens are essential for driving, texting, typing, and well… looking chic when it’s chilly out! We love the bright colors on this knit pair, and they would make a great gift to a friend, a co-worker or yourself.

Simone Camille
is a collection of eclectic, one-of-a-kind designs that mix vintage and antique woven textiles. Designer and celebrity stylist Simone Harouche’s inspiration for the handbags comes from her own collection of antique clothing, collected over her years as a wardrobe stylist. Her stock spans all the way from 19th century dowry textiles to 1970s Thea Porter kaftans - quite impressive! Harouche began by making herself one of the bohemian-chic handbags, but after Nicole Richie, one of her clients, asked for one, requests for additional styles came rolling in. Snag yourself one of these pieces, and you might be carrying anything from a vintage doll dress to a wedding sash or a tribal costume from 19th century Morocco. So cool!
