holiday Gift Guide : #7 Animal Print Wallet

I'm a sucker for large folded wallets that can double as a fashionable clutch, and I can't deny I love the look of animal print, so of course this Faux Leopard Kate Spade Wallet made my day, and my wishlist.

Holiday Gift Guide : #6 Fashion Photography Books

I'm not a big reader, never have been, and while I think that digital books are brilliant, in my opinion, there is nothing like holding a big beautiful book filled with the greatest photography to really and truly inspire. Whether they were published recently or years ago, anthologies or collections from my favorite photographers and artists will never grow old.

Holiday Gift Guide : #5 Quilted Puffer Coat

I've never really been a fan of the puffy, quilted coat or jacket, that is, until I spotted this dapper down dream on Victoria's Secret. I don't know if I like Caramel, Steel or this Gold color or if I want classic black, but I like how it's feminine and cozy, with lots of pockets and a cute, faux fur trim hood. With the cold, snowy Winter's we've had the last few years here in the Mid Atlantic, I know this adorable coat will get a lot of use, keep me warm and look fabulous with a pair of jeans and my favorite Duck Boots for trekking through slush.

Holiday Gift Guide : #4 Set of Rocks Glasses

This is a gift a man can appreciate, and would most likely, get a lot of use from, I happen to love the hip but vintage feel of this set of 4 rocks glasses from Vital. Perfect for parties, hanging out with friends, or after a long hard day of work when all he wants to do is sit in his pajama's and watch DVR of Top Gear, these glasses are just the type of home decor item that you both can live with.

Holiday Gift Guide : #3 Cashmere Sweater from Calypso St. Barth

This is the perfect Cashmere Sweater, in my humble opinion. Soft, luxurious, flattering on many shapes, sizes and ages, and the thumbholes in the cuff take me to a whole other level of sweater lust. This is a sweater I would want in every color available, which there are three-baby blue, cream and this flaxy darling, vicuna. I can see myself growing old with this sweater, as a great layering piece, dressed up or dressed down, this sweater is aces. You could get this sweater for your best friend, girlfriend, daughter, mother, wife or in-law and I guarantee, she will love it. She wouldn't be able to help herself.

Holiday Gift Guide : #2 Ralph Lauren Gloves, Hat & Scarf

The moment I first laid eyes on that hat and fingerless gloves, I was in love. Then when I saw just how expensive it was, my heart sank. I believe in investment pieces, but $900 for a hat, glove and scarf set is a little out of my league. I guess this is a stocking stuffer for families who buy each other islands and cars and houses. Needless to say, a girl can dream, and if any of you know of similar, less expensive Southwest inspired coldweather sets, let me know, but for know, I'll pine away for after these gorgeous threads in hopes of a massive blowout sale at Ralph Lauren can heavily discount these enough so I can buy them without selling a kidney.

Real Wedding : Laura & Brian

Laura & Brian were married this past August in Easton on the Eastern Shore of Maryland at the Tidewater Inn. They wanted the wedding to be sweet, playful and bright, and the most important thing for their wedding was that at the end of the day, they were married to one another.

Holiday Gift Guide : #1 iPhone Book Case

There are a few things that I both wanted AND needed, and one of those was a case for my iPhone 4s. I don't like the open face cases, since my phone had a habit of purse dialing friends or family, and the screen could easily get scratched. I learned the hard way with my iPhone 4 how fragile those damn screens are when it broke less than a month into owning it from a slight bump (I'm guessing the proprietary touch screen is made of blown sugar). Now with my new iPhone 4S, I want to keep my phone protected, which is one of the many reason's I LOVE the 12 South Book Book iPhone Case, and am so excited that we're selling it at fourcornerstore.com. The other thing I LURVE about this case is that it's a mini wallet-I can put my ID, 2-3 credit/debit cards and some folded cash and go-which is great for heading to the gym, running errands, small nighttime clutches, or for guys, just a regular, everyday wallet. AND it's only $45 for genuine leather and overall design awesomeness/adorability, whatever you wanna call it. While you do need to remove the phone slightly from the case for photos or videos, that's the only bugaboo I have with this otherwise stellar and perfect little iPhone Case. If you're scratching your head as to what to get a guy, a girl, friend, in-law or anyone who loves them some iPhone, you really cannot go wrong with the Book Book iPhone Case from Four Corner Store. I rest my case.
