On the 10th Day of Christmas …

Hey Dolls! I’m a little old school and believe that white shouldn’t be worn after Labor Day. I know that many have long since rid of this tradition, but I adhere. The thing is, I love white. Nothing is more classic than a crisp white blouse, white jeans, a fresh pair of white Keds. I could go on. With the love of white in mind, today I gift you, Christmas en Blanc!

Beats Studio3 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

Beats really have evolved since entering the market in 2006. There’s something for every listening aesthetic. Regardless of the Beats product, I love the look of Gloss White, with the touch of silver. Perfect for the techy in your life.

We all gravitate to the traditional Burberry check. I mean, what’s not to like. Lately however, I have been swooning over the iconic check in white. Surprise your Burberry lover with the Giant Check Cashmere Scarf, but with a twist.

J. Crew Vintage Pajamas

When I was a little girl, I said to my Mother, “Why does it matter what I sleep in?” Her reply, “You never know who you will meet in your dreams.” That one little line stuck with me, and to this day, I carefully select my sleepwear. One of my go-to’s are vintage pajamas, and these  by J. Crew make for a perfect gift.

Mark & Graham Bamboo Elisabetta Slouch Handbag

Now Dolls know, not all white bags are created equal. Some can look super janky. But not this number from Mark & Graham. I have a similar tote from M & G. The leather is quality, combined with the monogram and bamboo handles – fab! I know, I know, it’s too early to carry, but why not gift it in preparation for Summer 2018.
