It’s hardly been a week since shoppers packed stores for Black Friday and dissed office work for Cyber Monday sales.
But how many of us are fully confident with the gift choices we make? And how many more are disappointed as they unwrap gifts from loved ones during the holiday season? Thank God for gift receipts, right?
It’s part of the reason why I thought I would make this year’s gift guide something special, unique, and hopefully, worth your while.
Here are my Christmas gift ideas for 2013.
Sure, I might have pledged to be more of a frugalista in 2013. But I’m still keeping a close eye on luxury.
Enter Louis Vuitton and the A/W 2013 collection presented in Paris this morning.
It was minimalist and mesmerizing.
Marc Jacobs juxtaposed menswear tailoring and super-feminine silhouettes and remixed the iconic Louis Vuitton handbags we’ve come to know and love.
I plan to do things very differently this year, especially when it comes to fashion.
As I journey through the next 363 days of the year, I resolve to be more careful, disciplined and creative with my style decisions.
Why? Well, because I need to–for my sanity and my financial health. Essentially, I’m making the transition from die-hard fashionista to frugalista.
So here is my public declaration of how I plan to enjoy fashion responsibly in 2013.
In short, there will be no more overspending and definitely no more overstocking!
Hoping and praying I can keep this up for the next 12 months! Wish me well.
Let’s face it. Some of the world’s best fashion isn’t exactly accessible.
So it’s not uncommon for average, aspiring style savants to find themselves poring over major fashion houses’ websites, daydreaming of one day owning one (or many) of their coveted goods.
Admittedly, I’m guilty of this awful time-wasting act.
Tuesday the 2010 style issue of Uptown Magazine hit newsstands, featuring supermodel Naomi Campbell.
It’s one of two covers for Campbell for African-American magazines this month.
