For those of you who are still looking for the perfect locally sourced holiday gifts without breaking the bank, I have hand-picked these 5 Holiday Fashion Gifts for you, your girlfriend or that special someone.
1. Nelle – Tuxedo Cherub $95
The first time I learned about Nelle handbags was when the owner of this company had her wedding day featured on Minnesota Bride. I was intrigued by her wedding style and found out that she was a handbag designer (no wonder!). Her collections had graced countless magazines across the country but this clutch is one that I thought would go perfectly with any little black dress. The pink hand-dyed ruffles are just enough added touch of softness that says “I’m a girly girl and am proud of that!”. This style comes in various colors. www.nellehandbags.com
2. 10,000 Lakes Scarf in Cream $62
For the man in your life – with style. This one is a perfect blend of style and nod to our beloved state. Also comes in purple. www.pierpointhicks.com
3. Leather Passport Wallet $95
J.W. Hulme is a St. Paul-based company that has crafted classic leather bags, lugage and accessories for over a century. This classic red is perfect for that Holiday travel – wherever your heart takes you. www.jwhulmeco.com
4. PEARLS Earrings $30
They named it Pearls but the earrings were actually made out of wood and acrylic. I just thought they were cute and at $30/pair they can make anyone’s day brighter! Different colors are available. www.silvercocoon.com
5. Wrap Vest with Bow $99
What I like about this vest is the versatility of it. You can mix and match any way you like it, because it is such a classic. Check out the Ariel Simone shop by Adrienne Yancy at Etsy. She was one of the designers featured at Minnesota Fashion Week back in September 2012.
I hope these pretties inspire you =)
