As the holiday season approaches, it’s hard to differentiate between the items we like and the items that we will actually use. It’s been far too long since I’ve been offered a glass of champagne off a silver tray or experienced the roaring sound of music and loud chatter as the elevators open to The Boom Boom Room.
It doesn’t appear as if any of these opportunities will present themselves any time soon. Even the awkwardness of being at a social event, surrounded by strangers, seems nostalgic. So how will we be shopping and for what? That remains the question.
Bags and shoes are always a safe purchase. Will sweatpants and heels become a thing? Let’s hope that times don’t become that desperate. Earlier this week, I dove into the elevation of outerwear in anticipation of increased outdoor socializing. You can click here to see what’s caught my eye.
Speaking of seasonal dressing, I worked with Intermix to and picked the perfect wardrobe heroes. You, know those items that save the day and keep you looking great over and over again. You can click here to see my favorite items.
