PRESENT PICK: FOR THE PREP

Clare V Ipad Cover

Today’s present pick is for The Prep. There was just something about the hot pink and racing stripes that immediately gave me a flash back to my rather large (and now completely embarrassing) collection of ribbon belts that we all wore so proudly in high school.

This Clare V. iPad case is infinitely cooler and it’s success as a gift surely extends beyond owners of The Original Preppy Handbook. The stripes are also a little reminiscent of Goyard, no?

So, if you have any Preps on your list, or Preps in remission (like myself) this is your gift pick. Bonus points if you find a way to monogram it!

DISCOVERY: CLARE VIVIER COIN PURSES

Persimmon | Navy | Green

I have a whole series of gift guides for you next week, but couldn’t resist sharing these personalized coin purses from Clare Vivier a bit early. Simple but chic, I can’t imagine anyone on my shopping list that wouldn’t mind adding one of these to their purse. A little luxury that you might not buy for yourself (but I’m seriously considering the persimmon) which makes it all the better gift to give. If you’re interested, be sure to shop quickly, the sale ends on Moda Operandi tomorrow!

Which color would you choose?

UPDATED CLASSICS

Mango Contrast Trimmed Trench | Claridge and King Shirt | Nine West Pumps | Asha Horn Bangles (also love) | Clare Vivier Clutch

I pinned the above image of Emma Stone from Who What Wear about a month ago and haven’t been able to get that amazing trench out of my head. Emma is wearing Burberry (of course) but I recently came across a much more affordable option that I think you might be excited about. Mango’s contrast trimmed trench comes in at just under $130 but will give you the same timeless look.

Since I’m a big proponent of updated classics, I’d throw in a leopard Clare Vivier clutch and set of drop dead gorgeous Asha horn bangles to jazz up the ensemble. Pair the above items with your favorite pair of skinnies and the photogs might be snapping your picture on the street!
