Christmas is without question my favorite holiday. I love the joy, love and togetherness that this time of year can bring. To kick off my holiday season of gift giving, I partnered with Zappos to participate in their 2014 Zappos Present Palooza (aka a Secret Santa of Style). I was given the awesome opportunity to shop for a special and stylish gift for Melanee Shale of www.melaneeshale.com. The after reading her blog and exploring her style, I knew a Rebecca Minkoff bag would be just perfect for her. As I set out to search though Zappos site, I was amazed at the wide selection of not just shoes, but clothing, accessories, beauty products and more. While my main focus was Melanee’s gift, I couldn’t help but search for things for everyone on my holiday shopping list… and for myself! When I finally made it to the Rebecca Minkoff handbag section, I had 154 choices! How would I ever decide! As I browsed though, I came across this beautiful Mini 5 Zip bag. The zippers and fringe give it that special edge yet the classic shape makes it a perfect fit into any handbag collection. My obvious color choice was the deep burgundy; this rich color is one of Fall/Winter’s hottest colors and has been seen a color focus in clothing, jewelry and beauty. To complete my gift, I wanted to add a little piece of jewelry to complement her new handbag. I choose a pair of Vince Camuto gold hoop earrings with a leather trim. It was truly a joy shopping for Melanee! With a strong culture of style, community, and top notch customer service, my experience was Zappos was super easy.
As for the gifts I received, my blogger sent me these adorable Sam Edelman ankle boots that embody both comfort and style. These will be perfect for my casual days and my winter weekend adventures. My blogger sweetened my gift by adding a pair of Levi’s Black Skinny Jeans. I love the combination!
