Everyone was looking merry and bright on Thursday evening as Fashion Washington (a Washington Post publication) partnered with Redeem boutique to celebrate the launch of their Holiday Gift Guide. Hostesses and FW editors, Jennifer Barger and Holley Simmons brought together an eclectic group, including some of the city’s finest fashion gurus, for merriment, libations, and to share what’s hot in gift giving — and receiving.
The event featured local bloggers’ prime picks for festive and fabulous gifts, like Liz Fassbender (So Much to Smile About), who wants to wrap up colorful accessories — like Nikki Baker multi-color stackable rings.
Grant Harris (Image Granted) elevates men’s looks by gifting classic and colorful pocket squares to add elegant pizazz to an otherwise ordinary blazer.
Lauren Liess, (The Pure Style blogger and mom of three) suggests buying gifts for kids that complement the decor–“I often find myself wondering, ‘Will it look good on the floor?'” The Jonathan Adler piggy bank she’s putting under the tree could make even the worst saver want to pinch their pennies!
And if you’re looking to give the gift of good taste, Jenna Golden (Eat More Drink More) is all about a gift that keeps on giving. A pie subscription, anyone?
But then there’s that F part of FW: Fashion. If you’re wondering what to wear to the myriad holiday parties happening around town, FW Editor Jennifer Barger recommends trading in button downed traditional attire for easy, yet luxurious separates. Bring out the cashmere sweaters and flowy skirts, don bright colored frocks that are more festive than formal…and of course drape yourself with glittery baubles!
