Who has a friend or family member who literally has everything? They don’t need another fragrance. They don’t need a kitschy new tree ornament. They’re on some kind of “I don’t eat chocolate/sugar/alcohol/salt diet” that eliminates every sweet or good bottle of wine known to man. I have a few on my list (and I’m secretly this person, too!). So what to get them? Tug on their heart strings with a tee that gives back in so many ways. This unisex shirt (a collab by Artbound, Me to We Style and MTV host AJ Sovani) is eco-friendly, sweatshop manufacturing free – and 50% of the profits go to Free the Children. One more stroke of giving? A tree is planted for each tee sold.
Reach for a chunky knit with a reindeer pattern… It’s what Santa would want
I’m in glorious, snowy Whistler village right now for the Whistler Film Festival. It’s as great as it sounds. Not great, though? Trying to pack for a week that includes TV appearances, skiing, cocktail parties, unglamorous photo suite setup and running around, and you know, regular old work. The extra caveat? Some parties have dress codes like “Whistler chic.”
Since I have no idea what that means in concrete terms, I decided to opt for playful apres-ski worthy items like this Tibi intarsia sweater (cheeky patterns were huge on the runway, so that automatically makes it chic, right?) paired with chunky necklaces and skinnies.
I won’t be the most dressed up person at any party, but I’m going to be the coziest and happiest!

Sure, it’s an atrocious amount of money to spend on a wallet. But, fashion logic: My finances could use some divine intervention. So…it all evens out. Right?
