As I mentioned last Monday, StyleCarrot has partnered with Finnish design house Marimekko with a series of holiday gift guides, among other projects. (Tomorrow evening I’ll be live blogging from the Marimekko flagship on Newbury Street in Boston—please stop by if you’re around.)
Las Monday’s gift guide, Marimekko for the Host, focused on tabletop and kitchen items. For our second installment, we bring you Marimekko fashions for your best friend, cousins, etc.— Marimekko clothing and accessories for men, women, and kids.
Raising the bar a few dollars. . . Last Wednesday it was Gifts for Her Under $25. Do I see see $50? Splurge a little on your sister or your BFF. These presents under $50 are all seriously cute. I’d love the earrings. The tape holder is tres chic, but not sure my desk is glam enough. The note blocks are cool though. And if you’re not totally into camo fashion, but want a taste of the trend, the cosmetic pouch is perfect.
Here’s a compilation oflovely presents for a friend or sister, all under $25. A few are from online boutiques you may not have heard of, , sites that are worth exploring whether you’re buying for yourself or choosing holiday gifts.
ModCloth has really cute clothing at great prices (I just bought this adorable camera tee). Furbish Studio, a boutique in Raleigh owned by designer Jamie Meares, has fun home furnishings, as well as gifty gems. And, I just discovered including Waiting on Martha, an e-boutique and blog by Mandy Kellogg Rye, who plans to open a brick and mortar outpost in Atlanta next year.
