Stacy London has teamed up with Baublebar to create the ultimate holiday gift guide. When in doubt, gift a girl some jewels! London weighs in with her picks for best statement pieces, layered looks, and timeless classics. If you’re looking for a gift for your mom, your sister, or your girls this holiday season, this guide has got a look to please every uniquely styled lady in your life! I’m personally coveting the layered looks – so versatile!

P.S. Check out Baublebar’s blog, The Post, for the brand’s tribute to What Not to Wear, What NOT to Gift!

The 90’s Trend that Actually SHOULD Come Back

Cole Haan Chelsea Low Pump, $298

Many ladies would argue that I’m not a true fashionista for the following reason: I’m 5’2″ and refuse to wear a heel over 4 inches. I know you tall ladies are fuming at me for not taking advantage of the ability to wear 6-inch pumps and only be 5’8.” After years and years on pointe shoes back in my ballet days, I refuse to torture my feet any longer! So, it’s no wonder I’m rejoicing at this 90’s comeback: the court pump. And the heel height is (drum roll please…), 3.5 inches or less!

P.S. My philosophy is: you can have it all and never pay full price. See how much (or rather little) I snagged these pumps for from Rue La La. The deal is over now, but Cole Haan is a brand that recurs on many members only deal sites like Rue La La, so stay on the lookout!

Swoon-Worthy Campaigns

Banana Republic Holiday 2013

Banana Republic Holiday 2013

Tis the season for remarkable holiday and resort campaigns that make our wishlists runneth over. Popsugar has highlighted seven campaigns they find particularly swoon-worthy. Of their picks my personal fave is probably the Nicole Kidman for Jimmy Choo Resort 2014 collection I featured on the blog a few weeks ago. However, I’m also loving the Banana Republic ad. If this doesn’t say classic holiday campaign, I don’t know what does! Check out the complete list here.
