Fashionattitude: Holiday Shopping One For You, One For Me

December 2, 2013 • Fashionattitude, Magazine


I find holiday gift shopping to be the perfect opportunity to shop for myself. Is it really so selfish? If I pick up a few things for me (me! me!) while I shop, then I can cross a few things off my own wish list. Well…maybe not. Here’s what I found for a few people on my list, (and, ahem, for me).

1. Best Friend: Cashmere is great to give, so when I found this Neiman Marcus Cashmere High-Low Sweater for my best friend, I stumbled upon this Michael Kors Lace-Print Cashmere Dress. Well, she may like it too, but I couldn’t get this for her, she would need to try it on. Besides, it was on sale.

For You: Neiman Marcus Cashmere High-Low Sweater, $250

For Me: Michael Kors Lace-Print Cashmere Dress, now $777

2. Sister: I’m always telling my sister she could use a small, slim handbag. This Clare Vivier Foldover Clutch in Black/Pewter is perfect for her! Even more perfect, I found a leopard print for myself. Leopard is too wild for her, and she wouldn’t want to have the same bag as me anyway.

For You: Clare Vivier Foldover Clutch Black/Pewter, $210

For Me: Clare Vivier Foldover Clutch – Leopard, $210

3. Boyfriend: I am going to surprise my boyfriend with a Burberry Mid-Length Trench Coat in black. I realized I don’t have a mid-length, and I could use one as well so I picked one up for myself in a different color!

For You: Burberry Mid-Length Technical Cotton Trench Coat, $1495

For Me: Mid-Length Cotton Sateen Trench Coat in Beetroot, $1495

4. Mother: I saw these lovely slippers for my mother and while I was cutting through the shoe department, I scooped up these fabulous Alejandro Ingelmo tie-up pumps.

For You: LMN / Luxe Me Now Camellia Embellished Black Satin Slippers, $175

For Me: Alejandro Ingelmo Mariposa Leather Tie-Up Pumps, $925
