Holiday Gift Guide

Day Eleven of Garden of Glam’s Holiday Gift Guide: Jenny (Marketing for Club Monaco)

Jenny is the Associate Marketing Manager for Club Monaco, did marketing for Alice + Olivia, and worked in publishing at InStyle.  Jenny is the definition of fabulous, always looking super stylish whether she is casual in chucks or dressed to the nines for Fashion Week or other incredible events.  Jenny has been featured in Refinery 29 and has been photographed by Bill Cunningham (the ultimate honor).

As a reminder, I have asked each contributor to share what’s on their wish list and give list this holiday season with the hope of making your holiday shopping a little easier.

Ralph Lauren Keyhole Sunglasses.  I’m always on the search for the perfect pair of sunglasses.  I think my search has ended.

These sunglasses are to die for! These have been added to my wish list, which is ridiculously long now.  The shape is amazing and I love the yellow tortoise shell.  Sunglasses are a personal gift to give, because fit is crucial so make sure you are close with the lucky recipient of this gift.  These glasses are also gender neutral.  These would be great for a significant other, sibling or close family member.

Catbird Stacking Rings.  As someone who doesn’t wear much jewelry at all, I love simple and delicate pieces.  Catbird in Williamsburg, Brooklyn carries some of my favorite whimsical jewelry–their thin stacking rings are my favorite.

Catbird has the most incredible one of a kind, delicate pieces.  And they have a fully functioning website so you don’t have to be a NY resident to shop there.  Their rings or any jewels would be perfect for a friend, girlfriend, sister or mother.

Club Monaco Bobble Hats.  I love these bobble hats Club Monaco made this winter!  They’re the perfect gift for a Secret Santa Exchange, as well as for all of my little cousins.

These hats are so fab and add much needed humor to the chilly winter!  As Jenny said, they are great gifts for cousins, uncles, in laws, boyfriends, friends, anyone!

Terrapin Stationary.  As the oldest running stationer in NYC, family owned Terrapin Stationers offers some of the finest quality stationary with a does of irreverence.  They are beautiful yet will make anyone on your gift list laugh.

I am obsessed with the idea of giving personalized stationary!  There is nothing more special than receiving a hand written note in the mail, a nod to a more dignified time.  Terrapin has beautiful and cheeky stationary, the best combination.  Great for a co-worker, friend, family member, or as a host gift.

Resort Wear

I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day weekend, which normally marks the end of summer.  However, (and please forgive me)  this post is my desperate attempt to cling to summer for as long as possible.  I just got back from Hawaii and wanted to share a bit of the fashion from my trip with you.  Resort wear is tricky, because it can be so limiting, only being worn on vacation and then it ends up monopolizing valuable real estate in your closet.  So for me, the important thing when shopping for a tropical vacation, is making sure the clothes can also be worn off the island, while having enough beach flair.  This is not always an easy balance to find, but is crucial when shopping on a budget!

I love this dress because it combines pleats & ruffles, which make it wonderfully beachy. The dark green also allows the dress to be worn during transition seasons with a fab cropped jacket.

Dress: Hunter Dixon, Shoes: Nine West (last season), Sunglasses: Ray Ban, Watch: Michael Kors, Accessories: Random Assortment

I absolutely love rompers and this one is so great because it is practically a blank canvas and you can take the look in any direction.

Sunglasses are one of the most important accessories, especially when you’re in a tropical location. I love Ray Ban because they are always the original innovator of sunglasses designs. Sunglasses found here.

Romper: BCBGengeretion (found here), Shoes: DVF (last season), Purse: Gigee Marie (similar found here), Accessories: Random Assortment

The sunset is celebrated by ceremoniously lighting all the torches and blowing the conch shell. The wind was not working with us for this picture and my hair almost caught on fire!
