Acclaimed Stylist Stephanie Alexis of SA Style Studio Weighs In on Top Accessories Picks for Her
The holidays are here. The clock is ticking down on Christmas morning or that party your best friend is throwing and you’re just now realizing that you haven’t gotten around to purchasing a gift. Maybe next year will be the one where you start shopping earlier.
If you haven’t finished (or haven’t started) your holiday shopping yet, fear not! There’s still time to come out of this holiday season as a gift-giving hero. You just have to know where to look — and have a good sense of exactly how much time you have left. Here are some ideas that can add a touch of personalization to your last-minute gift — and spare you from grabbing a gift card from the corner store.
For the Woman On-The-Go
Every wardrobe should have a handbag that a woman has longed for, maybe even dreamed about owning. Picking out a purse to gift to that special woman can be a big task. A fabulous handbag can change an entire outfit and really speak for itself.
Accessories, bags in particular, can dramatically change the feel the entire feel of an outfit. When choosing a purse the most important factors to think about are quality and versatility. I love pieces like the Reversible Tote by Aurelia Garza because it is the perfect size whether you’re off to work, running errands, or going out to dinner. The bag is adaptable for any season, the fine craftsmanship allows you to sport a basic black or nude on one side, and instantaneous reverse the bag to show the light metallic gold on the other side! You can take your look from Autumn/Winter to Spring/Summer in just seconds.
For the Simple Fashionista
Jewelry is always a great gift, whether its intended recipient is your sister, friend, or last minute guest. Adorning their necks with fine delicate layers that will provide additional depth that is easy on the eyes, without taking attention away from their ensemble. The Golden Strands Necklace by 7 Charming Sisters provides elegance and quality at a reasonable price.
Choosing the right statement piece can dress up any modest outfit to provide that “WOW” factor. The On the Go Necklace and the Topshop n Roll Cuff Bracelet are flawless choices for upping the ante on any look.
For the Social Butterfly
For those women who find themselves constantly attending social engagements and fundraisers, the perfect gift is something that will compliment her cocktail attire. When heading out for the evening add a touch of intricacy with the perfect pair of earrings. The Executive earrings are great for any occasion, from a night out on the town to a cocktail reception.
For those women with a glamour flair, the A Bag add the perfect touch of decadence. Its smooth mirrored patent lends a sophisticated feel to this vibrantly hued chain bag. The transformative nature of this purse can lend itself as a shoulder bag, or tuck the 10kt gold chain strap in for a red carpet ready clutch. This multifaceted purse stands out in the crowd, and is sure to be a conversation starter.
