Haute Holiday Gifts from Yes Virgina!! Trends You Would Love to Find Under Your Christmas Tree.
Let’s take a step back here and give you a bit more of a snapshot about me. I have a slew of sweet treat posts coming at you– that you are going to LOVE!! I love them! I managed to try a few things and there are some other things that I haven’t tried but I can see that they are amazing. Don’t miss the 12 Drinks of Christmas- a series that spans the holidays for 12 days featuring a different spirit with beverage recipes and maybe a food recipe tossed into the mix. There will be a series on tech gifts and gadgets too and some interesting/fun gifts from this new site I scoped out that I think you need to check out too. However — as a fashionista and former fashion editor– fashion is part of who I am. One of the things that has hit my radar (actually never left my radar) is leather.
Someone asked me what I wanted to find and it’s a mix of lots of things. First things first– good health for my family members and some willingness to compromise on the part of the national & state legislators would be nice but really– I can ask for that but I can’t make it happen. (Though if you think about it– if we ALL went to our legislators at the state and national level and said reach across the aisle and come up with a compromise that benefits us the people who elected you — we might make a difference. Call me an optimist, a hopeful person and some will call me a fool)
Anyway, Yes Virginia got my attention with his amazing photo:
This crimson mink wrap is elegant, chic, colorful and a show-stopper! The great thing is that it’s only $1000! ( I say that tongue in cheek because to me that’s a lot of money but for the actual product in comparison to what I know it really retails for- this is a STEAL!) Perfect for the person who has someone special to gift and has the cash to burn .. and trust me if that wrap doesn’t make her blood run hot, there’s something wrong!
Also in case you can’t afford to spend a grand on a mink wrap, here are few other items from Yes Virgina that I happen to think are pretty spectacular!! The price tags are less too!
Made from Naplon (goat leather), this cape/jacket is perfect for every kind of weather. Wear it in the rain, wear it in the sun. The secret to the divinely flattering shape is the way the belt slips in and out, creating (or showing off!!) a tiny waist. Don’t you love the miracles of good design?
While the price tag might throw you a bit, it’s a piece that you can wear year round because it’s lightweight and highly versatile. When did you last see leather that is this divine in these kinds of colors? It’s worth it.
Ok, let’s lower the bar a bit more here:
Zipped Napoleon Jacket — with pintucking. Price: $795
Available in: tobacco, camel, crimson, black, military green, fuchsia
According to Virginia (yes I called her for these quotes):
If I have made one jacket that makes people happy, this is the one! The sleek fit skirts over the body in a most flattering way! Enjoy this jacket worn on the suede side OR on the leather side. Two jackets in one!!
Think about this for a moment. This jacket is reversible!! You have 2 jackets in one! Each style is $400 –depending on how you wear it and it comes in a fabulous array of colors!!
So if you can find a jacket with this kind of style and detail for $400 elsewhere, let me know– because I know you can’t. (How do I know? I have been hunting it down for 3 years)
Detailed Wool Scarves with Silk Stitching Price: $299
Scarfaholics beware. We are about to feed your addiction! There are scarves in more colour combinations and stitchings than we could begin to show! Beyond gorgeous, beyond anything this scarfaholic has ever seen. Can you tell we love these????
Incredible workmanship on these gorgeous wool scarves with silk embroidery. There is nothing else out there like this at this kind of price. Wrap yourself up in this like you would a cashmere wrap and this will be less money– and garner you more compliments.
