One of the best events of every season are the Accessories Council #ACTOPPICKS Previews that allow us to check out the latest and greatest accessories on the market. Here is the best for Holiday 2016:
1. Eleni’s Cookies |$
Guests to the preview were greeted with these adorable cookies. I have always loved Eleni and her cookies and plan to make these a holiday gift this year.
2. Judith Leiber Handbags Candy Pillboxes|$575
I have always been a fan of Judith Leiber’s glittering and whimsical bags. This year there are tons of beautiful options for every woman on your list. My favorites this year are these adorable candy shaped pill holders that are perfect for your elderly relatives and the weed smokers on your list, as well!
3. Edie Parker Happy Trays and Coasters |$495
With the world going mad around us, we all need to have little reminders of our every day blessings. I am mad for these sparkly little trays and coasters.
4. Elyse Ryan WristRocks Stackable Gem Stretch Bracelets|$75 per
I first met Elyse a couple years ago and have remained a fan ever since. Fusing fun and philanthropy, buying her jewelry always gives back. This year, she has created WristRocks, must-have baubly bracelets with 20% of sales going to to the Vasculitis Foundation, which supports Vasculitis research, awareness and patient care. In 2016, the Vasculitis Foundation co-sponsored their first Vasculitis center in partnership with Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Learn more about this autoimmune disease and how you can help increase awareness, by visiting www.VasculitisFoundation.com.
5. Heather Hawkins Jewelry Arrowhead Chain Necklace|$165
This is a new brand to TGATP and I love it. Hawkins’ jagged agate arrowhead creates an eclectic accent on this long chain necklace of 14 gold fill. With an adjustable length and lobster-claw clasp, this is sure to please.
6. Vera Bradley Fur Clutch |$58
I am feeling everything Vera Bradley this year. The brand has come a long way from the simple florals that they are known for and have created a line of on-trend leather and faux fur handbags including this color-block fur.
7. Nicole Miller Sweet Pea Pave Necklace |$78
It’s Nicole Miller, what’s not to LOVE about this elegant whisp of a sparkly drop necklace? I love this piece because it can be paired with either a simple tee and jacket for day or dressed up with a LBD for evening.
8. Ava Nadri Crystal Hinged X Bracelet for Sales |$100
This is so stunning you will want to gift every woman on your list AND by yourself one as well! I like it best in the silver, which we were blessed to be gifted with at the preview.
9. SakRoots Power Banks |$18
Cute as stocking stuffers, these will be a welcome gift for every busy gal on your list. I can never get enough power banks, as my phone seems to be always running out.
10. Doucce Luscious Lip Stain |$28
Perfect stocking stuffer for every beauty loving female on your list. The Golden Caramel is a great neutral for every skin tone.
11. Heet Rock AG Crystal Mist Bracelets |$145
Leather with stones, make this bracelet a must-have for the edgier gals on your list. I pair mine with a collection of other leather, rubber and jeweled bracelets for a standout look.
