2012 has been an extremely busy year! Forgive me for getting such a late start. Normally my list is out on the 1st of December, but I think you’ll still have time if you order now to get your family friends and loved ones some of the most coveted things I’ve come across all year. As always it’s a difficult process to just pick 10 items for my Holiday Guide List. Remember these mentions are actual products I’ve seen, owned and in some cases have reviewed. I hope you love what I’ve put together this year! Just leave me a message in the comment section telling me which products are your favorites!
1. Lauren Luna Elizabeth Peep Toe Pumps
Lauren Luna has been a staple on the PrincessDominique.com website from almost the very beginning because we love her style, her amazing eye for design and color and we especially love how she transformed her own Lauren Luna brand basic black peep-toe pump into all of these whimsical statement pieces with her unique customizations. We did a review of her product earlier in the year here and I must reiterate that they are by far one of the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever worn. So, if you are looking to dazzle the lady in your life this holiday season or treat yourself to something extra special, from leopard and giraffe to color block and peacock feathers, the Lauren Luna Elizabeth Peep Toe Pump is DEFINITELY it. $95.00-125.00.
2. Love Cortni Clutch
Love clutches. Adore them. Whenever I leave home I have one tucked under my arm. So it’s only a given that I would simply and utterly adore Love Cortni Clutches. So far I’ve purchased one and have my eye on the one above and we even look forward to stocking them in PrincessDominiqueVintage.com. Life would never be right if there wasn’t a clutch on my must have list. Her tagline is Clutches Perfect for Making a Statement, and if you browse her shop you’ll see that whether you are a fan of sequin, leather with studs or animal print there is something for everyone. $45.00-115.00.
3. LASPACENY Crown Bangle
As a fashionable woman who like to look like a million without spending it LASPACENY is right up my alley. When I reviewed the Crown Bangle I fell in love because I am truly a fan of having the ability to keep my outfits simple and classic or make them edgy with accessories be it earrings, a necklace or a cute bangle. The thing that I love the most is that this bangle definitely got compliments, so much so that you won’t think it was as affordable as it is. It’s definitely a quality piece. The style was unique and allows me to let out my inner rocker chick every time I wear it. If you have a few budding fashionistas on your list grab a few of these because they will definitely SELL OUT at this price. $18.00.
4. Jypsea Leathergoods Swing Earrings
Because I love out of the box thinking and leather, to me these Swing Earrings by Jypsea Leathergoods made the perfect choice for my Must Have Favorite Things List. That’s probably why they’re one of her best selling products too! Her description is as beautiful as the product: They get so much attention and do wonders to flatter the face. Fun, fabulous and flattering. Made of beautiful “dragon-scale” embossed terracotta leather. 4″ long. $30.00.
5. Gwan by Charon Casey Romper
I loved this jumper from the moment I saw it. Like Charon says on her website it can be worn so many ways, with a cardigan, a jean jacket, the amazing leather brooches she sells or just by itself. It’s very versatile and the side pockets make it comfy enough that you can pair it with jeans or dress it up with heels. I just hope you love yours as much as I love mine. $95.00.
6. MeCurios Pink Silver Dipped Raw Quartz Point Necklace
When I saw this cute necklace it was love at first sight. First of all I adore quartz, secondly I love pink. Thirdly if you mix both together you have my full attention. All of the jewelry in her shop is handmade and the quantity is limited, but I still couldn’t pass up sharing. The blessed few who do get their hands on these will enjoy them forever. Perfect for those eclectic people in your life! $30.00.
7. Day Three Whipped Milk & Honey Sugar Scrub
As a fashionista pampering the body is a NECESSITY! Imagine getting pampered by bath and body products that are natural and honor God and the amazing ingredients He crated at the same time. That’s what Day Three’s motto is. And you can’t go wrong with this whipped milk and honey body scrub. Slather it on and enjoy. Available in 4 ounce for $12.00 and 8 ounce for $20.00.
8. Dearfoams Fuzzy Plushy Booties
Our list wouldn’t be complete for the holidays without a pair of comfy cozy Dearfoams slippers. You may remember when I reviewed a pair of Dearfoams leopard bootie slippers back in January here, however, you can really add a little bit of sass to your life or the life of that special someone with these plush faux-fur bootie slippers with the foldable flaps. They’re machine washable and oh so adorable. $28.00.
9. Candy Flavas Lover Boi Candle
Men are often overlooked during the holidays. They end up with socks, a tie, a tool belt. Men love nice things. This Lover Boi candle is it! The black velvet damask print on the matte black votive is luxurious and the 10 ounce candle is long lasting. Pamper him with the distinct notes of cedar, lime and mango. $40.00.
10. Essie Lady Leading Winter Mini Collection 2012
For the girl that has everything nail lacquer will do. Essie polish is known for its durability and it’s smooth application and the colors in this collection are amazing.
