holiday 2014: gift ideas for the fashion lover

for the fashion loving gals on your list, consider these fabulous gift ideas…

the blanket scarf is having a moment! any fashionista would love having multiple {because chances are she has one already}. you can find it in many patterns and price points {i just ordered this one on cyber monday, and it's still on sale!}.

a monogrammed necklace is timeless, personal and thoughtful.

a phone case with a playful image {can't go wrong with Kate Spade!}

to keep her organized, consider a new wallet  to house all of her important must-haves

and of course, i wouldn't be me if i didn't recommend some books. these three i recommend highly:

Fifty Dresses That Changed the World by Design Museum {the publisher has other list-centric reads to consider} includes images of dresses worn by Wallis Simpson, Jackie Kennedy, Twiggy and Cher and, of course, Princess Di. this fun volume shares fascinating appraisals of what gave the 50 most important garments their iconic status.

Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington, is the gorgeously insightful and overall enjoyable read that any fashion-loving reader would love. Grace is the creative director of american Vogue magazine and her influence is all over its pages. in the book she describes everything from her early career as a model to working with world-class photographers, fashion's best and most influential to her time at british Vogue and shares stories behind some of the most memorable photo shoots and editorials; of course, these's so much more! i listened to the audiobook {read by Grace herself} when it was first published back in 2012, and know it would be fab to have the hardcover.

Teen Vogue Handbook: An Insider's Guide to Careers in Fashion isn't a new title, but it has been updated with 90% new content, including info for our digital age. this book was sent to me, and it's an incredible resource! if you know your recipient is interested in any aspect of the fashion industry, from design to makeup to photography as well as hair, writing online, styling and PR, this book is fabulous. i've really enjoyed reading all the oodles of advice, features and great profiles of industry experts and the overall fact that it helps the reader to understand what each job requires.

what fashionable gifts are you planning to give this year?
