Guest Blogger: CARADISE FOUND!
So in the craziness that is LUSSO DECEMBER, it occured to me that i have no time to blog anything cool. so i reached out to a few of my fav local bloggers and they said YES! so here goes - installment 1!
Meet Cara of CaradiseFound.com:
I love it when a store is a one stop shop - especially around the holidays. Who has time to be trudging somewhere to dress yourself for holiday parties and then somewhere else to check all the names off your holiday lists?! Not I! Lusso is that one stop shop for fun, unique gifts for your friends and kids as well as great clothes and hard to find brands that will get you party ready! Think of Lusso as the hip-gals Amazon! Here are some of my favorite gift giving ideas and a few of my favorite holiday looks, all from one place.
These ceramic ornaments make the perfect gift tag. I signed my name and dated the back and attached to a bottle of wine for a hostess gift last weekend. Or wrap them up (Lusso wraps for free!) and give to your yoga teacher, best friend or kids teachers - anyone in your life who will appreciate those inspirational sayings!
Who doesn't love a necklace? And these make the perfect gift. Festive and tassle-trend right, I'm pretty sure I can think of like 5 women on my Holiday gift list that would love any one of these!
My book club always does a gift exchange and this year, I'm taking one of these mini glass dishes. You can buy them with a cute saying already on them or add a monogram (that takes a little more time, so plan accordingly!). Perfect for stashing your jewelry, lose change or just buy to look cute on your desk.
And don't forget about yourself this holiday season! While browsing the store, I was drawn to these silk camouflage Rungolee separates. I've never met a print I don't like and this one was no exception! It has great fringe detail and I love the fact that it's separates, so the combo looks like a jumpsuit only I guarantee it will fit better. I paired the look with pale blue strappy shoes and a metallic bag.
I know everyone has a go-to pair of jeans in their closet. Sometimes all you need to find is that perfect party shirt to wear with them. Look no further than this sassy star sequin number by Chaser Brand. The criss cross straps ensure it stays on your shoulders and the bell sleeves add some interest.
Finally, what is holiday dressing (at least in St. Louis) without a fun coat? This one by Yoana Baraschi is dressy enough for weekend nights, but also good for day to day. It's black but not just basic black (read: equally versatile yet a little less boring!).
If you live in St. Louis, you can shop Lusso in Clayton in the Carondelet Plaza right by the Ritz Carlton. Not local? You're still in luck because they have a great website, they gift wrap AND they ship!
Happy shopping and happy holidays!
