{mini} Perfect Prezzies: 22 Days To Go!

Welcome to the last installment of {mini} Perfect Prezzies week!  Today, I am posting about the accessory of the season — the scarf.  It can be the primary element in an outfit or play a supporting role.  And they are affordable and easy to style. 

I love Boden’s selection of accessories right now, especially their scarves:

I have posted about this one before, but I am still swooning over this bright, fun ikat scarf ($48).  It comes in five additional great colors too.

And, I am mad for plaid lately, so I think a gorgeous, modern tartan scarf would make a great gift for any preppy gal on your holiday list:

{Precocious Plaid Scarf, Anthropologie, $48}

These two scarves from Target would make a great gift, stocking stuffer or “purple elephant” present:

{Global Girlfriend, Darling Dots Scarf, Target, 100% cotton, $14.24}

{Muk Luks, Houndstooth Fur Scarf, Target, $24.99}

I hope this week has given you a few ideas for your holiday shopping.  I am back in town now and hope to be back to regularly scheduled posting next week.  Happy shopping!

Ikat: It’s Not Just for the Curtains Anymore

We all know and love the look of ikat in our homes: curtains, rugs, bedding, throw pillows and blankets….  We can’t get enough!

Ikat is a dying pattern (similar to tie dye) that originated in southeast Asia, and it’s been popular in home design for a while.  But it’s now popping up in fashion all over the place:  

This dress would be great dressed up for work or dressed down for a summer party, I DIE!  {Carmen Marc Valvo, Saks Fifth Avenue, $340}

DVF wrap in ikat?  Yes please.  {Capela Dress, Diane von Furstenberg, Bloomingdales, $258.75}

A great choice for the office or Sunday morning (I think this dress would look better with a tan!) {Sheath Dress, Anne Klein, $148}

Great for summer date night!  {Print One Shoulder Dress, The Loft, $98}

I love this tunic by St. John paired with white jeans — looks fab (sorry for the small picture). {Ikat Tunic, St. John, $237}

I love this easy, sophisticated look.  I can seen a colorful tunic, white jeans and flops easily becoming my go-to summer uniform!  {Ikat Print Poncho, Gucci, Saks Fifth Avenue, $635}

I love these two ikat bags by DVF — the orange one may be an early birthday gift to myself!
