The JENNA Inspired Gift Guide

Happy Black Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am still coming out of my turkey/ mashed potato/ pie coma and yet all I can think is that I still want MORE. Thank goodness for leftovers!!!! For those of you who are out battling the crowds right now- godspeed. If you are like me and prefer to do your holiday shopping from the comfort of your sofa, today is a good day because it seems as though almost every retailer is having an epic sale right now!

In related news, today is the day that I'm kicking off my holiday gift guides! This year, in addition to my usual "for home" and "for the kiddos" I'll be doing a few different gift guides "for her" inspired by our three #BOSSLADIES. I'm starting things off with a guide inspired by the one and only Jenna Lyons! The queen of cool, Jenna perfectly embodies downtown chic and as far as I'm concerned, if Jenna approves of something then you know it has to be good!

  1. A great book by Jenna's BFF Garance Dore. (Amazon use code HOLIDAY30 for 30% off one book)
  2. Jenna's favorite lipsticks make for great stocking stuffers.
  3. Black glasses, to emulate Jenna's signature look.
  4. The perfect leopard clutch because as Jenna says: "Leopard is a neutral". (J.Crew 30% your purchase + Extra 40% off sale use code HOLIDAY)
  5. Jenna's favorite shampoo, conditioner and styling creme for luscious locks. (Barney's 40% off selected sale styles.
  6. Jenna's signature scent. For the favorite perfumes of other style mavens, check out this post! (Nordstrom use code Black Friday for up to 50% off select styles for all + free shipping and returns)
  7. Blue suede heels, which just so happen to be topping my own list this year! Take a cue from Jenna and pair them with skinny jeans and a button down shirt. (J.Crew 30% your purchase + Extra 40% off sale) use code HOLIDAY)
  8. The documentary Iris about the legendary Iris Apfel who Jenna has named as one of her fashion idols.
  9. Metallic loafers. Pretty much the coolest shoes I've ever seen and what Jenna was wearing when I met her. These will certainly make the fashion forward gal on your list swoon. (J.Crew 30% your purchase + Extra 40% off sale) use code HOLIDAY)

Of course, the ultimate gift for any Jenna Lyons fan is "THE JENNA" available as a tote or a sweatshirt! This is the last week to order yours to guarantee Christmas delivery and I'm pretty sure the tote will be selling out this season. Make sure you get yours before she's gone!
