Something to Make Her Smile

My holiday gift guide for your friend, lover, and love of your life.

Cheap and easy (around $50 or less):

Under $100:

A little bit more:


  • The best bling I know – Erica Courtney huggies or eternity band (email Naomi) – so your girl can shine everyday – don’t worry, they’ aren’t ridiculous.  Both are at the top of my wishlist.
  • LuxuryLink.com – vacation of a lifetime that won’t break the bank
  • Cashmere chic – Ralph Lauren cashmere circle cardigan ($1098 – I can’t find it online, comes in black, creme, or my favorite purple) – here’s a less expensive cable navy version, or an even cheaper  alternative I like too! I have this cashmere zip up and absolutely love it.
  • A fun watch you won’t have to pay off – My faves are Glam Rock and Brera.  Both run $500-$995 available at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills or Barneys. Glam Rock example.  Brera for women is new on the market and unavailable online to my knowledge – Love the gold chronograph with white rubber band.

Helpful Websites:

Not at all glamorous, but I would be so excited to receive:

  • A car payment
  • Amex or Visa gift card
  • Gas card
  • Mani/Pedi/Wax (click for LA, NYC, Houston locations)

Fab Faux

May 8th, 2009 No Comments


Thanks to Mary, it’s a new more accessorized me.

Check out my new faux snake skinned teal Brook Bag by Karen Zambos ($121). The quality is outrageous, and it’s even sturdy enough to haul my laptop around the city.


Lookin’ good lady!

(I have been dying for her to get a new bag.  The Fendi was on it’s last thread!)

Something we didn’t mention in the spring style edition of TMI are faux skin bags, shoes, belts – basically any accessory you can think of. You can get cow or lamb embossed skins to look like croc or python, but I’m in love with Zambos & Ziega Brooke Bag ($121) that is completely vegan. It’s durable, sturdy, really cute, and….affordable!

It’s the perfect carry-all to compliment your spring wardrobe.  Especially if you’re into prints.  Mixing and matching patterns and textures is one of the harder trends to follow right now, but with a solid colored faux skin acting as one of them, you really can’t go wrong.

Right now only two colors are available online: teal and ivory, but I’m sure the other colors are soon to follow.  I took this picture in Karen’s showroom so I know they’re around somewhere!

UPDATE: The other colors (chocolate brown, camel, and gunmetal) are fall colors and she will be putting them online for pre-order.

If you have to have one NOW (which it is my strong belief you do. I’m in love with mine from H&M but it’s long gone from the racks.), then I think the Ivory would be my first choice. Although the teal is a denim color which would go with anything too. Tough call!
