Everyone and their sister is doing a holiday gift countdown, so I wanted to do one too….but mine won’t be specifically for the holidays….it will be for the bridal party. I’ll be doing a bridesmaid and groomsmen edition, maybe with more to follow. You might recognize some of these from past posts, but they were just too good to not post again…others might be twists on traditional gifts….either way, all these gifts are ones that I would love to have myself, so if your bridal party has killer taste, start taking notes!
So, bags……whether it be toiletry, clutch, or tote, please don’t let it be ordinary! One of my favorites this year is the Hunters Tote from LL Bean…a very nice departure from the standard preppy Boat Totes. Get it in camoflage and have their initials embroidered in bright orange for a nice twist!
clockwise from top left: toiletry bag $46, smyka bag $72, um carry $95, freddy and ma $165, claire clutch $50, hunter’s tote $19-34
I love the chunkiness of these crystal pieces by Kenneth Jay. Perfect for a punk rock bride!

By now everyone who signed up for the card swap should have received their partners….if you signed up and have NOT gotten an email from me, please email as soon as possible!
I have been waiting SOOOO long to be able to use this picture, because he is just so adorable!
Just wanted to clarify something about the cardswap that many people have been asking me….this is essentially just like sending holiday cards to your family and friends, except that you’re sending them to your swap partners! So be creative and have fun with it!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! See you next week!
