Holidays scream for metallics. You never see more gold, silver and jewel tone dresses in the stores than during the winter holidays. Here are some of my favorite ways to go full metal:Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Every year, I have high hopes that Arizona will finally make it to the Rose Bowl and every year, I am sad because we just can’t seem to GET THERE! But one day we will, and until then I will continue to watch our games with 8 pm and 9 pm kickoffs that no one on the East Coast will ever see! Let’s make this season a success by beating the Sun Devils. PLEASE!
So, as much as we all understand that Tucson is often an online shopping town, there are surprises that do happen in T-Town! And, while escaping The Home Depot–which always overwhelms this non-tool girl–I discovered that global women’s designer Jason Wu has a limited-time capsule collection at Kohl’s and it is not bad!
Wu, winner of the Swarovski Award for Womenswear at the CFDA Fashion Awards, has created some stunning jumpsuits and dresses, just in time for the holiday season. Seriously, worth a trip to your nearest Kohl’s! While there, you can also look at the fun new looks by Rock & Republic and Elle. Also, Kohl’s UA section (or should I say UArizona) offers some unique things you can’t always find other places.
Every girl can wear red and green, but why not choose a lush blue velvet dress this holiday season? The color is universally flattering and we have six less days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year to wear beautiful holiday dresses, so gotta take advantage! Nordstrom, Dillards and 6pm.com have stunning options right now…Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
If you’ve taken notice of Duchess Kate’s newest obsession, it seems to be the high headband. And the royal is not the only fan. The headbands are all over Pinterest and even made Parade magazine’s 2019 Christmas Wish List.
But, I’d like to argue that my friend Griselda, whom we fondly call “Salma” bc of her movie-star looks, saw the trend coming before anyone else. She has been making beautiful, embellished headbands like those coveted by the duchess and other social media influencers for several months now. You can find them, starting at $20 at Posh Boutique. Covered in velvet, satin and patterned fabric and studded with pearls and gemstones, this is a trend you don’t have to order. You can find it right here in Tucson!
You can also follow G’s instagram, ghobbies for more selection.
