If you know a glamour girl or two, you’re well aware they like to steal the show with a lot of glitz and glitter. Play up to her movie-star personality by decking her out in gifts with class and a lot of bling.
Glam up your gift-giving
Nothing transforms a little black dress into a jaw-dropping, head-turning number faster than a striking piece of statement jewelry. Think about the type of clothing your glamour girl prefers: If she likes deep-v dresses, pick up a stunning necklace like the Jessica by Kendra Scott Jewelry. If she’s a skinny-jeans-and-blazer type of lady, an oversized cocktail ring might be in order, like the Smoky Topaz Statement Ring by Marie Bruns or the Silver Wrap Around Bangle by Ben Amun. And no matter what type of woman you have in your life, a pair of chandelier earrings is always in style. The Black Forest Vintage earrings from BonBon by Micah Yancey feature pear-cut Spinel gemstones on vintage findings. At only $56.00, they’re quite a steal.
Scarves are everywhere this season, and as any glamour girl knows, staying on trend is important. Pick up a brightly colored, extra-long scarf in a vibrant print to make your favorite lady stand out from the crowd. The Indian-inspired Skinny Silk Kantha Scarf by Krickette offers the perfect blend of form and function for any stylish woman.
An aspiring diva won’t ditch her shades just because winter’s arrived. As every movie star knows, an oversized pair of sunglasses is the perfect accessory when heading outdoors. Give a practical and glamorous gift when you pick up the Rough Justice Wrapped Up sunglasses in Blue Mood. Not only do they rival the shades of the Kardashian sisters, but they also offer maximum UV protection and can be customized for prescription lenses.
Hats and glitzy hair bands
The busy glamour girl must be able to run out the door quickly without forfeiting style. To help her tame her hair quickly, pick up headbands, hair ties and hats that go beyond the boring, classic look. Nobis offers the Lola –- a beautiful handwoven hat with custom buttons and satin detailing that’s perfect for cold winter days. And for the glamour girl who needs to dress up a ponytail, check out the pony cuffs from Di Manno Designs. They come in various widths, colors and styles including animal prints and crystal.
Real fur may be a fashion faux pas, but faux fur says “glamour girl” in a way that no other fabric does. Help your glamorous friend layer in style with the gift of a faux fur vest, like this one by Vintage Havana.
If a vest isn’t quite your friend’s style, consider giving her glamorously casual footwear like the Cozzycrocs Fuzz Bootie in brown-black. They instantly jazz up a pair of skinny jeans, and they’re comfortable, to boot.
If she needs a less expensive way to achieve a high-end fur look, get her a pair of Huggrz Boot Wraps in Grooved Black Mink. For less than $40, your friend’s high-heeled boots get an instant makeover and end up looking faux-mazing.
Cold weather makes stockings a must, but no glamorous woman would set foot outside in old-fashioned nude hose. Give the gift of glam with a few pairs of tights in fun styles and patterns. Some stockings even come with crystal appliqués like these stunners offered as part of the Steve Madden Holiday 2011 legwear collection.
Bag with bling
Every glamorous woman loves a good purse, and nothing will please her more than a bag with some bling. Pick up a clutch adorned in rhinestones or metal studs for an evening event, or opt for a simple hobo with animal-print details for a daytime option. Check out Olivia + Joy for several excellent choices, such as the Luxe Wristlet in silver sequins or the Vava Voom hobo with a snakeskin inlay.
