My fav Anne Hathaway not only had a great movie released last week, but she’s also now up for an industry top job: hosting the Oscars (with hunk James Franco). This is less fashion-related than it is rocking my world, but since she has become somewhat of a style icon and gets featured on The Rachel Zoe Project as a client I think this post is justified.
She’s hosted SNL twice in the last three seasons (the Mary Poppins skit is still one of my favorites!) and remains, in my book, one of the most stunning faces in Hollywood with great style and pipes to boot. She elegantly moved from Disney Princess to topless screen siren (in two films mind you, and come to think of it, both with Mr. Gyllenhaal) without getting much – if any – flack. She’s comedic, dramatic and chick flick gold, and it’s my personal belief that if she had a few more Parkinson’s disease scenes in Love and Other Drugs, she would be up for an Oscar nom. I think she’s totally deserving of this host-ship. It’s about time there was some youth in the prime hosting gigs. I really hope the rumors are true!
My fingers will more than likely freeze unless I have some gloves. My mom thinks I should invest in a pair of glittens so I can text in the cold weather (she’s so considerate, and knows me too well…). So we picked up a pair today at Target, but these are cuter and require less work to wear. And they’re cuter. Like, way cuter. And from Anthropologie (seriously, where’s the bad?!) for $38. Is someone in your life moving to a colder climate or already living in one? Consider this as a thoughtful and fashionable option. Or if you need a fab Secret Santa gift idea, this will more than suffice.
I promise, this will be my last gift idea post inspired by fredflare.com. If you know me well, you know I went as Holly Golightly for Halloween this year (photo at the bottom of this post, I apologize that this photo does not adequately capture my costume, I really went all out). If you know me well, you also know that I must wear a sleep mask to bed. It’s sort of a long story how that began, but the point is, this particular sleep mask is freakin’ adorable and $14 – by now you know I’m going to say it’s a perfect stocking stuffer idea, so chime in if you like.
Here’s the sleep mask circa 1961.
Here’s me this Halloween, as promised (I so wish I had a better picture to show off my costume, I did Audrey proud!).
I can’t get enough of fredflare.com. Honestly this is practical and cute. I can’t count to you the number of times a day I wish my laptop had more USB outlets (I swear, two is not enough!). Wish granted. For $22 this also makes a fantastic stocking stuffer idea *wink, wink* for anyone in your life who, like me, suffers this same conundrum frequently.
I really wonder if my loved ones read this blog. If not, this time of year is an excellent time to start since I can be a hard person to shop for…
To any of my friends or cousins who still don’t know what to get me: look no further! At only $12 this fashion origami set is way too presh! Thanks, Glamour.com for hooking me up with this website. Expect several other gift ideas to come from fredflare.com because I can’t get enough of the little trinkets on the site. But really, I’m not kidding about this one. With 120 sheets of origami paper and a 20-page instruction book (I have no clue how many origamis that makes), oh my gosh, I can’t stand how cute it is! Seriously, if this isn’t a cute and cheap stocking stuffer, I don’t know what is. Move over, Starbucks card.
Here’s another brilliant gift idea! For $48 at Nordstrom a special someone in your life could unwrap this gorge Marc Jacobs* laptop sleeve. If I were an iPad user, I would have posted about the iPad sleeve, but since I don’t have one, I’m putting this gem on my list. I’d like it in the ‘true turqoise’ color, even though it also comes in black, hot pink, marigold yellow and purple dream – all great options. They are a treat for the eyes and, well I could use a laptop sleeve like that. I don’t have one.
*It wasn’t until the end of this post that I realized my sole other gift idea post (thus far) is also a Marc Jacobs product.
Just like last year with the Michael Kors Very Hollywood solid perfume ring, this year’s of-the-moment solid perfume ring is by Marc Jacobs! The Marc Jacobs Daisy solid perfume ring is a few bucks more than Michael Kors (inflation, huh?) at $43. Snatch them up at a Sephora near you.
