ski style


Leave it to Zara to whip up a ski collection that can stylishly swish off the slopes. Let's start with the cute hooded knit, above, and the waterproof down puffer, below, that's equipped with technology to assist rescue professionals locate you in case of an accident, avalanche, or loss in a remote area. Genius, no? Other cold-weather experts: the asymmetric-button sweater, below, and this Prada-inspired bomber jacket! P.S. Khaite just launched a compelling apres-ski range, steeped in cozy cashmere.

good gifts

Every year I am the knucklehead who always waits until the very last minute to do my holiday shopping. I cannot tell you why this is the case, except that online shopping has enabled me to do this and, I might add, made it easy. This year, however, Net-A-Porter is facilitating things even further, greasing the wheels with its exceptional gift edit, which, to my delight (and those I'll be gifting), offers the unexpected, such as framed prints by British Vogue photographer Guy Bourdin, above, this striking ceramic vase by Brunello Cucinelli, these exclusive satin sandals by Toteme (total self-gift!) and this rainbow-pretty set of glasses by La Double J. Shop it (for) yourself right here!

shiny shoes


Leave it to the Parisiennes to come up with the easiset--and yet chicest--holiday dressing hack: elegant, sparkly shoes to elevate a simple outfit. I'd like to let my feet do the talking at the next party with any of these current conversation starters by Mach & Mach, Loeffler Randall, below, Prada, Miu Miu, and Gucci.



uniqlo x marni


In case you missed it: Uniqlo and Marni have teamed up again to create a vibrant edit of striped sweaters, knit dresses, color-blocked puffer jackets and other winter essentials, all combining the functionality of Uniqlo with the fashion-forward creativity of Marni. My faves include the $30 cute scarf-turned-bag, above, as well as the vibrant cashmere turtleneck, below. The $15 set of socks and mittens also make for great stocking stuffers! See the poised-to-sell-out collection here!



home for the holidays


Because our busy work schedules, family, children, travel--along with the 405 and meddling flyover states--keep my twin sister and me apart a lot, we make a point doing our downtime together. And lately we've been doing it well with help from Haven Well Within, a brand dedicated to off-duty style, restoring and recharging. Its masterfully curated collection of feel-good products, loungewear, pajamas, intimates, beauty, and home essentials help us embrace the rituals and healthy routines that ground us and keep us feeling our best. When my sis and I were together recently at her home in Beverly Hills, we threw on our favorite kick-back-and-get-comfy staples from Haven Well Within, including the cashmere cardigans, above, the super soft activewear, cotton knits, and our go-to silky shorts.

sunshine state


If you're one of the lucky ducks planning to fly south to Sunshine Land, then I suggest you make a pit stop at My Theresa to pick up some 80 degree-perfect provisions on sale! Start with the Hunza G bathing suit, above, marked down to $133! Also poised to holiday: this Dolce & Gabbana mini, this Poupette St. Barth midi, this Juliette Dunn floral shirtdress, and these Ancient Greek sandals.

tuesday try


If you failed to score on Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday, you can give it another shot today at Shopbop's 70% off sale--a jackpot of gems including the pretty Isabel Marant sweater, above, this ruffled Zimmermann, this Tory Burch knit skirt, this Vince wardrobe staple, and this pretty print La Double J dress. So many scores here.

ping me


Leave it to me to shop for a fold-up ping pong table and end up with a cart full of stylish stripes instead! That's exactly what happened to me while I was poking around Walmart's website the other day, when I stumbled across the quilted cutie (above for $30!) and so many more stylish surprises (thank you, Walmart!), like the striped button-down (below), this color-blocked cardigan, these patch-pocket drawstring sweatpants (in every color!), this blouson-sleeve blouse, and this adorable pea coat. See for yourself the seemingly endless stash of wonders here.

crew up

While I am not quite ready to hang up the garland and steep myself in egg nog, I could easily slip into a sparkly, holiday-ready top or a dressed-up knit. Not surprisingly,
J.Crew is serving up a slew of styles that are suitable for the occasion, including the festive feather-trimmed striped tee, above, that works both at home and out on the party circuit. Also noteworthy: these metallic pumps, this incredible sequin blouse (size up for a roomy fit), this jewel-button sweater (pictured), this elegant print blouse, and this embellished shirt (in all colors!).
