Now that the black Friday craziness is over, we can finally move on to what everyone has been really waiting for - LFA’s ultimate Christmas shopping guide, including something to match everyone’s taste, we promise! We have put together five virtual gift baskets for five different occasions, quickly mixing it up between cozy and glam.
THE COZY EDIT
First up, we have some ‘me-time’ galore, with the first gift selection revolving around cozy, stay-at-home pieces. If you haven’t already hopped on the viral UGG trend, then now would be the time because it doesn’t get warmer than the Disquette Slippers. Imagine a chilly Sunday afternoon, where all you want to do is binge-watch your favorite tv-show and replay Home Alone for the 5th time, enjoy some tea and just not leave the couch for the entire day. Well, that calls for a comfy loungewear set, a silky robe, and a soft cashmere blanket to top it all off.
THE NYE EDIT
Shifting our focus away from the couch and onto this year’s fancy New Year’s dinner, we believe Saint Laurent should do the trick. The all-black feather scallop-hem wool-silk mini dress is sensual, mysterious, and dramatic, so it’s going straight at the top of LFA’s party look picks. We know that as a rule of thumb, ‘less is more’, but who doesn’t like to be a little extra from time to time? When we think of extra, we want to go all out with a pair of Valentino 15mm rhinestone pumps paired with Jimmy Choo’s Callie crystal-embellished pink bag for a girlier touch, and finally, a pair of classic diamond stud earrings to tie the look together.
THE HOME EDIT
This one is for home decor lovers, and it features a selection of items looking like they have been taken out of a Pinterest mood board. A mint-green Fornasetti vase, a funky lip Seletti candle, and an iconic Medicom teddy-bear figurine already look like you won’t even need a Christmas tree this year. It’s okay, as long as you get the right coffee table book and Dr. Vranjes heavenly patchouli diffuser. Since we’ve already proposed an avalanche of colors, let’s cool it down with some neutral tones from the Off-White Arrow Mohair Large Cushion.
THE WINTER EDIT
We know, for many of you, the holiday season is all about the warm weather of Dubai or Maldives, but for the snow fans out there, the winter edit virtual gift basket is going to make you want to drop your fuzzy slippers and grab your winter boots. Be it Courchevel, St. Moritz, or Aspen, you cannot go wrong with an off-white and black combo to keep you warm. The padded Moncler puffer jacket, the nylon Prada snow boots, the Thom Browne teddy bucket hat, and of course, a cashmere Loro Piana turtleneck are a must for the cold season.
THE SELF-CARE EDIT
You didn’t think we would forget the skin-care-obsessed queens, did you? With so many events to attend in December and so many makeup looks to rock, it’s crucial to maintain a great skincare routine to make sure you enter 2023 with a flawless face. Start off by getting rid of puffy eyes and dark circles with the Noble Panacea restoring eye cream and setting it in place with a little LED light mask therapy. Of course, we’re not neglecting our hair or body, so we’re letting you on to a secret - the Balmain hair treatment and La Perla body balm are doing wonders. Since we’ve almost created an entire spa day with this edit, you must look cute while going through this whole self-care routine, and obviously, accessories are everything - a trusty Prada hair band and a soft Off-White bathrobe will make you feel just like at the Dior Spa in the Paris Cheval Blanc hotel.
