It is that time of year again and it is shaping up to be a merry and bright season. Relatives will be rolling in soon, and decorations have long since been up. We love the holidays because it is a small space in the year for us to share time with those most important to us. Not only is the holiday season a reason to get glamorous, but it's also an occasion to be celebrated with family, friends, and tradition both new and old.

Cocktails Anyone

A fabulous cocktail requires the finest ingredients and a flair for flavors. Likewise, the perfect outfit for your next holiday soiree deserves the same attention to detail. The Marchesa strapless sculpted satin evening dress is high impact and a great foundation for glamorous accessories. Pair it with Valentino sequin and mesh peep toe pumps that make one feel as heady as a glass of champagne. Last, cluster these Lanvin cabochon stone and crystal cuff bracelets on your arm for a clean and alluring finish.

All That Glitters

Deck the halls, as well as yourself by mixing and matching jewelry and accessories this season. The Alexis Bittar hydroquartz pave hinged cuff bracelet is great on its own, but would look great stacked with a fine jewelry piece you already own. Be your own designer and layer accessories other than your bracelets and necklaces. The sheen of the Marchesa satin fan clutch is played up even more when you attach the Iradj Moini citrine and emerald feather pin.

Weekends are a Gift

Get away this season by packing a weekend bag burgeoning with gifts for you and your special someone to share. Whether you have actually planned a trip, or you are wanting to reminisce about a vacation taken together long ago, this present will be a refreshing surprise amidst all the bows and wrapping paper. Load the Brunello Cucinelli leather weekend bag with items like His and Hers Oliver Peoples sunglasses, Breil watches, or your favorite books.

Ornamentally Speaking

Neapolitan glass sculptor, Conrad Williams now makes his home in Eugene, Oregon, where his STUDIO WEST is a hub for innovative artists and a glass blowing production and education. Conrad worked with both Ben Moore and Dale Chihuly, resulting in his personal glasswork style which draws from the heritage of Italian techniques, while appreciating Scandinavian simplicity. The ornaments will be available for purchase over the holiday season, and Conrad will be making a personal appearance in-store on December 23rd, 2010.
