The Luxury Brand Starter Pack For Holiday Shopping This Year
Start writing a post

Whether you're just getting into designer brands or have a friend/sibling/cousin who's really into them, it really helps to have a starter guide! You can either use this for yourself throughout the year or around this season if you're having trouble gift shopping for that one person who would love something on this list. Items are organized by how much you're willing and/or able to spend.

If your price limit is between $100 and $300...

1. Armani sweatshirt

Armani Sweatshirt, $172Buy this item here

Athleisure has been really popular lately, and Emporio Armani offers really stylish athletic wear. They're perfect for people that are fans of the Calvin Klein pieces but want something slightly different.

2. Rebecca Minkoff purse

Rebecca Minkoff purse, $195Buy this item here

If you've never heard of Rebecca Minkoff purses, they're similar to Micheal Kors ones in the way that they have the look of the more expensive brands without you having to spend that much. This one is $195 and has impressive leather and hardware.

3. Tory Burch flats

Tory Burch flats, $228 Buy this item here

Tory Burch is a great choice for your first designer shoe because they're comfortable and beautiful without being too expensive. The awesome thing about Tory Burch is that they hold sales multiple times throughout the year. It's best to get them in a neutral color rather than a bright one if you can only buy one pair at a time because a shade like black can go with anything.

4. Salvatore Ferragamo bracelet

Ferragamo Gancini Bracelet, $160Buy this item here

I highly recommend this one. If you double wrap it, you can wear it as a bracelet. You can also wear it around your neck as a choker.

5. Tiffany's necklace

Key necklace from Tiffany's, $285Buy this item here

If you're going to have something from Tiffany's, a no-fail go-to is either something in their signature robin's egg blue shade or a pendant shaped like a key. This just happens to be both.

If your price limit is between $300 and $400...

1. Dolce and Gabbana belt

Dolce and Gabbana belt, $345Buy this item here

If you're getting your first logo belt, a Dolce and Gabbana one is a good option because it's made of strong and good quality material.

2. Gucci Scarf

Gucci scarf, $350Buy this item here

This scarf is $350 and is a perfect accessory to add to your outfit. Gucci offers many different color combinations of this type of scarf. The material makes it perfect for the winter weather.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
