A Fashion Girl’s Guide to Holiday Indulgences: Part I

We have seen gift guide after gift guide after gift guide this season and the one thing we’ve noticed, over and over, is that we wish just one magazine, just one blogger, just one insider, would go through them all and cherry-pick the small yet powerfully fabulous things that make the holidays so fashionably festive…those little items, straight from the houses that inspire us throughout the year, that we are just one ounce of willpower away from picking up for ourselves every time, but push forward to purchase as the perfect gifts for the few people in our lives that we know will truly appreciate them.  So we went ahead and put together our own, for all of you that feel the same way – some impossible-to-get-your-hands-on treasures, others simple pleasures – and so begins…A Fashion Girl’s Guide to Holiday Indulgences.

Isabel Marant? Zara? All that matters is the bootie.

Loving the western gone baroque thing going on this season?  Don’t go broke to get on that train.

We know Isabel Marant may have put the sleek, heeled cowboy bootie on the map…but we have to say, Zara has to get the credit for taking it to the next level this season.  Heavily inspired by Marant?  Most possibly.  Multiple variations and colorways available for a tiny-itty-bitty fraction of the price?  Done and done.  Compared to the $1,326 Blackson embroidered boots that Isabel has so successfully tempted us with for Fall, Zara made our mouth’s water with a bevy of stylishly comparable options ranging from just $129-$189, I mean, we could buy them all!  Or settle on just one and wait to see what’s up next season…either way, we really can’t go wrong.  We ❤ you IM but thanks Zara!
