holiday gift guide: los angeles

The Steele Maiden: Holiday Gift Guide - Los Angeles
As most of you know, I spent a stint in Los Angeles before returning to New York last Spring and since we're on the road with my Holiday Gift Guides (catch up with NYC and Austin) - I figured the City of Angels deserved a pitstop. There's a vibe to that area unlike anywhere else in the world.. relaxed and cool, but with a definite taste for the finer things in life. Which means for that brother of yours out on the West Coast (a mid-century yet totally modern pair of woodgrain headphones), for your best friend who's a total health nut (a fitbit or shoes that go from the yoga studio to the streets), and for your roommate who's homesick for the beach (a dainty bar necklace engraved with LA's map coordinates).  Happy Shopping!

winter whites

The Steele Maiden: Winter Whites
Brrrr.. we had a cold week here in New York (and a crazy busy week but that's another story) and it had me reaching for lots of layers and cozy textures. There's a tendency to pull on darker colors when the temperatures drop, but there's something about ivory that looks so chic. This off-white wool mini skirt was the perfect blank canvas for a matching sweater - and provides such a strong contrast against my typical black tights, tweed coat and big scarf. I can't wait for this weekend and a chance to catch up and catch my breath. The rest of my gift guides are coming up, what I'm wearing to Thanksgiving dinner and some other fun features are all on their way! 

Sunglass Warehouse Sunglasses c/o // F21 Tweed Coat // Old Navy Sweater // Madewell Skirt // Sole Society Bag and Scarf c/o // ASOS Oxfords c/o // Lulu Frost Ring (psst - they're hosting an online sample sale this weekend so be sure to check it out!)

holiday gift guide: austin, texas

The Steele Maiden: Holiday Gift Guide - Austin Texas Style
If you caught my first Holiday Gift Guide last week then you already know we're on the road with city-themed collections to help you find everything you're searching for..and then some! Today, we're focusing on Austin, Texas style - for those in your life that expel that independent, authentic and always easy going attitude. That means for your sister-in-law the foodie (a mouthwatering cookbook and indulgent chocolates), for your hard to shop for Mom (a pretty plaid tote and tree ornament) and for yourself (no judgement, you've been good this year) the ultimate in Southern cool.. blue suede shoes. Happy shopping!
