Kendra Richards: Great blazer by Theory or Helmut Lang in white or black. Skinny jeans usually from True Religion or 7 for All Mankind in black or dark denim. Great Booties. A Simple V-Neck T-Shirt in black or white (I love the ones at Zara! Inexpensive and work perfectly for me). And one statement piece like a unique belt or statement ring. (A-Lister)
Victoria Pavon: Hmmm... I love to wear cute leggings and a comfortable top to work with sneakers.
Lux Pavon: A plain tee or tank with some amazing jeans or pants and either, sneakers, Doc Martens or boots.
Ginger Harris: Distressed denim, a white top and black heels with a statement necklace is a failsafe. Also love my platfrom Jimmy Choos.
Jaclyn Shanfeld: Fit and Flare mini rag & bone skirt, Valentino studded pumps, white t-shirt and a my cropped leather jacket from acne. And Galanos gown from my grandma, she was his muse in the 50's....
Jaclyn Morse: Anything new is always my go to.
Becky Kung: Nothing beats pairing my Rag & Bone Wonderland skinny jeans with my bright pink Zara blazer, Old Navy vintage v-neck tee shirt and my black Callen Nine West ankle heels. This outfit is my go to and I often wear it for creative business meetings, running errands or a dinner date.
Jeanette Marie Hummel: I wear my Elliott Lucca Bali Woven Square Tote EVERYDAY!

"There's nothing like when someone says something to you that just makes your heart beat faster... then...stop. All within the same moment." (A-Lister)
I make lists year round of things I see that remind me of people or that they mention in passing. Then when an occasion arises I have a plan.
For my last birthday my husband surprised me by having my babies (aka dogs) professionally photographed while I was (working). He's basically screwed now because he'll never be able to top that gift. (A-Lister)
Dinner with friends instead of gifts
My husband surprised me with a vintage Rolex watch for my wedding gift!
A 2 1/2 week vacation to my favorite place in the world...Bora Bora"
I got my husband a pair of amazing hand-cut, ocean pearl and black onyx cufflinks that are reversible for our wedding.
We love the idea of bringing a really nice bottle of olive oil as a host gift. So few people buy nice olive oil for themselves -- it’s such a treat.
iTunes Gift Card
Make someone dinner. There’s not much you can do that’s more thoughtful than to make them something yourself.
A custom made action figure of my boyfriend
Handmade books and art from my daughters in endless supplies. I love them!
ZOE JORDAN Shetland sequin jumper

Ferragamo shoes. My husband claims he can never have enough of them!
A video of my wedding, complete with an awesome soundtrack.
A photo album of my family from one of my best friends. She snuck onto Instagram and made a book from all our pics.
We make a calendar with pics of my daughter for the whole family every year. It’s a huge hit.
A photo of a tree and its roots. My photographer friend snapped the photo and framed it. When she gave it to me, she said this symbolized how I have depth and my roots go deep. This gift was so heart-felt and inspiring!
I gave my husband a watch for our 5th anniversary. I love watches because they are timeless (no pun intended!) and I especially love watches on guys.
You can never go wrong with something that’s vintage or antique, because there’s a story behind it and the gift can be super meaningful!
