The Top 10 Gifts for the Fashionista on Your List

Ever wonder what to buy for the girl that has everything? Here's your cheat sheet.

Butter LondonQuick Change Artist
Butter London Quick Change Artist (Ulta), $15

Yummy Mummy is the perfect nail polish shade for anyone. It is 3 Free with no DPB, Toulene or Formaldehyde. It can be worn year-round with any outfit, but it is perfect for your New Years party. This set comes with the most amazing nail polish remover.

the guide to living colorfully book set
Kate Spade The Guide to Living Colorfully Book Set, $35

This adorable collection of books will provide the recipient with six guides to help her think, travel, dress, decorate, celebrate and charm colorfully. The tips provided are excellent and the illustrations are charming.

Choc-A-Lot: Gourmet Chocolate Pretzels
Dylan's Candy Bar Choc-A-Lot: Gourmet Chocolate Pretzels, $24

Treat her sweet tooth to a selection of chocolate-covered pretzels with delicious toppings like M&M's and toffee. The colorful box would add sunshine to any gray, winter day.

Stila Daydream Palette (Ulta), $18

I adore this beautiful eye shadow palette. There are 22 different colors that will allow her to create the perfect look for any holiday event.

100 Unforgettable Dresses by Hal Rubenstein (Amazon), $23

This book includes more than 200 pictures of the most memorable dresses in history. If your fashionista loves Versace, Audrey Hepburn or Fashion Week she will surely love this book.

Thin hand-enameled bangle
J.CREW Thin Hand-Enameled Bangle, $20 each

These bracelets look fantastic on their own or stacked with other bracelets. They come in six different colors as well as a wide width style.

Breakfast at Tiffany's   Sex and the City: The Movie (Widescreen) (Dual-layered DVD)   The Devil Wears Prada (Dual-layered DVD, Director's cut)
Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada DVDs, $10 each

Every girl needs the trifecta of fashion-focused movies! These movies are classics for a reason. I have all of these and find myself watching them over and over again.

soap sampler
LATHER Soap Sampler, $24

This set of four luxury soaps will help her relax after a long day. They are made from olive oil and other natural ingredients. The sampler includes invigorating as well as rejuvenating scents.

Kate Spade Franca Slippers, $58

I know $58 seems like a lot to spend on a pair of shoes that will not be worn out of the house. This is another instance of cost-per-wear. The recipient of this gift will wear these all the time, and it is almost impossible to find slippers that are comfy and cute. Besides, you can always bring these to throw on once you get inside (work, party, restaurant).

Instyle Cover
InStyle Magazine Subscription, $18

The fashionable girl on your list will love a year of inspiration. A subscription to InStyle magazine is 365 days of ideas.

Each and every one of these gifts would be a hit. Good luck and happy shopping!!
