These are a few of my favorite things. As I reflect on my 2012 style purchases, some items stand out as clear favorites. You know, those items that you always reach for because you enjoy wearing them so much. I pulled together a few of these faves—statement watches, bold earrings, a small crossbody bag, infinity scarves, and tools for the perfect pout—and created a gift guide.
1. Michael Kors watch, $250
2. Aldo watch, $40
3. Kendra Scott “Danielle” earrings, $60
4. Coach “Penny” purse, $198
5. Infinity scarf, $38
6. Infinity scarf, $10.80
7. Bliss Fabulips treatment kit, $45
9. Mac Pro lipstick (violetta), $15
Don’t like paying full-price? Here are some tips to get some of these items for less:
Kendra Scott earrings:
Check for sales listings at Nordstrom and Zappos. Certain colors frequently go on sale and both sites have free shipping and free returns. On rare occasions, you can find Kendra Scott earrings in Nordstrom Rack.
Amazon often has the kit listed for less than its $45 retail cost. The set usually qualifies for free super saver shipping too.
Coach has extended its exclusive 25% off discount several times this year. There’s a current 25% discount available (valid through December 16). If you’d like to receive the discount, use my invitation, and sign up here.
Michael Kors watch
Off-price stores like Nordstrom Rack and TJ Maxx always have large selections of MK watches. I’ve spent between $99 and $149 (orig. $250 to $275) for mine on the off-price market. By the way, the Nordstrom Rack stores in St. Louis have huge selections of MK watches right now for $124.97 (orig. $275).
