happy holi-daze gift guide: one for you, one for me...

i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it actually is the gift that counts. let's be honest, no one is interested in the thought behind a flavored ham of the month club. and if you think that i could use anything at all that is sold exclusively on television at three o'clock in the morning, please think again. the wrong gift can turn a perfectly functional family gathering into the following: twelve accounts payable, eleven assigned seats, ten crocodile tears, nine family feuds, eight sucker punches, seven binge eaters, six sibling rivalries, five intoxicated confessions, four kissing cousins, three surprise engagements, two new chefs [who made the potato salad?], and a raw turkey to eat. i've compiled a lovely list of gift ideas guaranteed to bring only peace, love, and joy. i am wishing you all so much bliss and many blessings this holiday season.

[en]joy: soludos.

soludos are not just shoes. soludos are a tribute to summer. sun tea steeping on the back porch – that's soludos. the sprinkler system serving double duty as a water park – that's soludos. sidewalk chalk murals, backyard bbqs, and key lime pie – all soludos. an updated version of the espadrilles worn on mediterranean beaches, soludos is a celebration of life's simple pleasures.

raffia low cut:

the raffia low cut is a sleeker version of the soludos original. perfect for those warm summer days that transition into haute summer nights. styles shown: black green | black yellow | black orange | black white


the lalesso brand pays homage to the vibrant beauty of traditional african fabrics translated by kenyan artisans into contemporary silhouettes. the company's signature prints are the inspiration for this exclusive collaboration with soludos. styles shown: coconut | spearhead

polka dot:

classic summers: will smith's summertime | cherry limeade. summer classics: navy white | natural navy

[en]joy: ash footwear.

as much as i secretly covet skyscraper stilettos from afar, i don't do heels. i don't care what the fashion magazines suggest – there is no pain in pretty. sure my feisty alter ego absolutely has a runway walk and her fashion personality is without a doubt vintage glam. but ash footwear is my daily runway reality, the perfect balance of sophisticated edge and casual luxe.

the featured styles are from the spring summer 2013 collection, check here for updates on product selection and availability: flavia white | flavia peach | giulia lemon | giulia coral | ginger lemon | gipsy mandarin natural | cool ter silver | cool ter platine

[en]joy: tecnica moon boot.

channeling a retro feel, the tecnica moon boot is completely unexpected. upon our initial introduction i wanted to learn to ski.  okay i wanted to rent a villa at a resort, sip hot chocolate by the fire, and wear these sleek showstoppers downtown while i shop for souvenirs. in reality the purchase was not a prelude to the luxe life at the sundance film festival. however, freezing temperatures and snow drifts aside, tecnica does make cold winters very haute.

styles shown – moon boot glance! moon boot w.e. puddle jumper! moon boot w.e. duvet!
