Holiday Gift Guide: Glamour Gals
Posted on December 06 2013
Do you remember Glamour Gals, the tiny dolls from the 80s that were like itty-bitty versions of Barbies? I was a big fan and ardent collector of these beauties in my formative years, even going so far as to build them tiny furniture out of old thread spools and pipe cleaners, with a hot tub built into a deck made from a cool whip container and a shoe box. Always just a bit over-the-top, these ladies wore cutting-edge, trendy 80s fashions, with big hair, lots of make-up and high heels. Likewise, if your lady won't be seen outside without "putting her face on" and lives in her Jimmy Choos, then this post is for you! A good rule of thumb: pay attention to fiber content. Silk is a safe bet, as well as anything made of French Leavers Lace. The Clara Whispering Collection (pictured above) is the perfect place to start, but there are dozens of other options for your fabulous diva. The Ellie Leaping Robe by Stella McCartney with Silk Stockings by Maria La Rosa has 'vintage glamour' written all over it. The finest, most exclusive French lingerie from Monette Paris will tell her just how special you think she is. Brand new luxury line, Morgan Lane, arriving soon, hits all the right notes with tulle ruffles, silk applique and flocked velvet mesh, to name a few highlights from the collection. She'll love the luxurious feel of this Hand Painted Silk Kimono by Samantha Chang. The Erin Wishing Collection by Stella McCartney combines glamour with sex appeal. The Boutique Hotel Demi Gown, hand crafted in NYC by Ari Dein, is sure to make any glamour gal smile, and the gift-giver can smile at the Sale price!
