Guest Couturist | Sugar Laws Spills Four Holiday Secrets
Can you guys believe that it’s almost the holidays? I feel like last week it was still summer! But I love, love, LOVE this time of year, so I was especially excited when Juicy Couture asked me to answer a few holiday-themed questions for their fabulous blog! Juicy is the epitome of all things holiday for me, with clothes that are fun, flirty and totally perfect for whatever fabulous parties you’re headed to this season!
1. What’s on your holiday wishlist?
The holidays are all about getting to indulge your inner glamour-girl: sequins, sparkles, adorable dresses and heels, are all completely necessary at this time of the year! I usually take advantage of the holidays to stock up on a few amazing pieces that are on-trend, but will last forever. Fur vests are basically my favorite item of clothing (faux, of course), and this one is beyond amazing. I love to take something simple and elegant and spice it up with a cool vest or an amazing bag (like this one or this one)!
2. Without ruining any surprises, what are some of your gift ideas?
I love to give gifts that are experiences people can look forward to—a cooking class, tickets to a play, or a plane ticket to come visit me. This is my first holiday season where I actually have to get on a plane to visit my family, so I love the idea of a gift that turns into another visit. And if plane tickets aren’t in your budget, you can always give a cute suitcase, or an amazing scarf or cozy sweater to keep them cozy on the plane!
3. The holiday season can be notoriously rough. Do you have any survival tips?
Don’t revert back to your bratty teenage self just because you’re around your family! I *might* be guilty of this one every once in a while. It’s not much of a tip, but I always try to savor the times that my family is all together under one roof—it doesn’t happen as often as it should.
4. What’s your favorite holiday tradition?
On Christmas morning, ever since we were kids, we always open the gifts from our stockings right away, but save the presents under the tree for after breakfast. There’s something so exciting about eating pancakes in your pajamas, knowing there are presents waiting for you afterward. Kind of makes me feel like an impatient little kid again, but in a good way.
