Over the last couple of weeks, we have shared some of our favorite gift-worthy items from retailers near and far. Because time was on our (and your) side, we were focused on the lazy-belle way of shopping…online. Now that “the big day” is only a little more than a week away, we decided to scour local shops to find the very best they had to offer in the grab-n-go category (no sizes needed, easy to wrap – or have wrapped – and not too hard on the wallet).
From Muse Shoe Studio…where the selection goes far beyond shoes…
From Savvy …
From Monkees of the West End…
So…there’s your first installment of shoppin’ local. We’ll take a right on Main Street tomorrow!!
Ho, ho, ho!!
A Jaffe, bags, bracelets, budhagirl, Christmas, Coordinates Collection, Croghan's Jewel Box, face brush, faux fur, fur, gifts, jewelry, Lenora Dame, Longchamp, makeup brush, Mark and Graham, necklaces, nordstrom, PJ Luxe, purse, rings, shopbop, Shrimps, socks, Stila, Tory Burch
It’s coming…ready or not! Christmas is just a few short weeks away, and those gifts aren’t going to buy themselves! We figured we would brainstorm some kick-ass ideas for you…’cause that’s what belles are for…
We have some ideas for him, her, the techies, the hostess…and we will share them all this week as we prepare to enter the “vortex”. First up:
Some ideas for her…
Ya know how we are always saying, “remember who you are and where you came from”?? These will help with that:
From A. Jaffe:
Choose any location in the world and A. Jaffe will engrave the map and place a diamond where “X marks the spot” for where her heart is (or should be)…(there’s a less expensive sterling version as well)
And from Coordinates Collection (above…we’ve told y’all about these before) use the coordinates of that special place to create a piece that will be all hers
From our fave belle-friend-owned jewelry store, Croghans, in Charleston, this crowning glory of a ring (above) is perfect for the princess or regal matriarch.
From Nordstrom she will love these Stila “sweet kisses”…an excellent stocking stuffer!
From Shopbop, the Shrimps “Abatha” faux fur coat will keep her warm
Stay tuned…there’s more to come!
While out-n-about and on the job (aka…shopping) the other day, we ran across an über-cool line of accessories that we simply MUST share! We love to see a little somethin’ new and different, and thought these were just a kick!
At Taz “on the Plaz” in Greenville, we found these awesome necklaces using vintage (and totally functional) whistles!
Combining style, history and safety (a belle needs to protect herself sometimes), these stunners from BLO Vintage will blow your socks off!!
With so many options (they have bracelets, too) we belles can always be ready for what comes at us…”every breath counts”
And speaking of “every breath counts”…BLO Vintage is very active in its support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, working to help those who battle CF and doing its part to help find a cure.
Now that’s worth whistlin’ about, belles!! You DO know how to whistle, don’t you??
Baublebar is letting us belles customize our own set of jewelry for summer!!
Look at what you can do !!!
And so much fun, we might just go for it twice!! Baublebar is speakin’ our language.
So get your summer refresh of adornments here. Y’all will be thanking us and your pocketbooks will be thanking you!
Here’s to summah!!!!
