Gigee Marie 2013 Holiday Gift Guide

We love everything about the holidays. And while shopping is one of our favorite parts, it's always such a task trying to figure out what to get those special people in your life (my problem is that I always get side-tracked and end up buying "gifts" for myself, smh). We pulled together a few of our favorite gifts in hopes of making your job a bit easier this year :-)

1. The Fashionista - This bronze clutch is from the latest Gigee Marie Metallic collection. A girl can never have too many clutches, whether worn casually or dressed up. Give this as a gift for your favorite fashionista to rock at the New Year's Eve party! - $70

2. The Beauty Queen - Beauty box subscriptions are a great gift idea when you're unsure of what to get someone. It allows that person to try new products and be introduced to new brands. There are so many types of beauty subscription boxes to choose from these days, such as Birchbox (beauty), Julep (nail polish), and Curlbox (curly hair). Prices start as low as $20 per month, or some services allow you to purchase subscriptions in periods of 3, 6, or 12 months.

3. The Decor Diva - We came across Michelle Dwight Designs on Instagram and were immediately drawn to their simple yet fun vibe. This line of handmade home decor and accessories includes pillows, coasters, and prints. Their pieces will definitely breathe some life into any room. This "hello" pillow starts at $38 for the pillow cover.

4. The Girl on the Go - Now this is something I need in my life...ASAP. Although I try to remember to carry my phone charger with me if I plan on being away from home for a long period of time, sometimes trying to find an outlet is what's irritating (this has happened to me soooo many times on my trips to New York...and don't even try to go into a Starbucks, Panera, etc. looking for an outlet because they're all always taken...but I digress). Anyway, this little gadget is the size of a tube of lipstick and will give you the extra boost your phone outlet needed. Most importantly, it's compatible with most phones. - $20

5. The Accessories Addict - Have you heard of Wrist Soiree? If not, please do yourself a favor and check out their pieces. Their accessories are handmade and I absolutely love every single piece. I already own the "Libra" zodiac necklace, and I have these cute and fun tassel bracelets on my list as well. - $18

Happy shopping!

Gigee Marie 2013 Holiday Clutches

It's that time of year again! The time of excessive shopping, gatherings with family and friends, good food, elaborate decorations...I love it all! It's also time for Gigee Marie to release a few new clutches for the holidays. As you saw in this post, we're a bit obsessed with metallics. So it was only right to have a couple metallic clutches for the holiday season. The gold and bronze clutches are great for those holiday parties, or if you want to just add a pop of shimmer to a casual outfit. Both clutches can be purchased here.

Gigee Marie Muses: Metallic

The holidays are just around the corner, so that means a lot of metallics, sequins, and sparkle. I love metallics (especially gold and bronze) because I think they're a great neutral that can easily glam up an outfit. But metallics aren't just for going out and getting fancy. You can still rock metallics during the day without looking or feeling overdressed. For something a little more subtle, you can go with a metallic mani or a belt. Here are a few of my favorite metallic looks:

Sneak Peek: New Gigee Marie Collection

I mentioned in this post how I've been working with a manufacturer to produce my clutches going forward, and in my last post, I gave you a look into my trip to select fabrics. Now, I want to give you guys a sneak peek of one of the samples from the new collection. It's been a long process but I really enjoy seeing my design that started out on paper, actually come to life into a real product. I'm looking to have 3 different styles in the collection, of course staying true to the Gigee Marie signature foldover clutch. I've been listening to your feedback (thank you!) and one of the biggest things I get asked is whether or not my clutches have a detachable strap. Well, now they will :-)

There are also some additional details on the inside that I think you'll appreciate as well (I can't show you EVERYTHING! lol).  I really want Gigee Marie clutches to be versatile and practical, but still stylish and high-quality. There are still some tweaks that need to be made in terms of detail, but overall, I am extremely pleased at how the samples came out. The date for when this collection will launch is still TBD, but I can't wait to share more pictures and the additional colors with you guys.
