The Luxury Brand Starter Pack For Holiday Shopping This Year

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 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.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
