The 2011 RGRS Gift Guide: Part 2

10 Dec

Last week we put the spotlight on The Label Whore. This week it’s all about The Colorful Chameleon. This person is far from glum and wears color like nobody else (electric blue with pastel pink? Why not!) This individual is also a fan of the arts and perhaps is an artist themselves. If they wear black, it must be paired with a colored jean or a bright accessory. They are a kid at heart and their energy is off the wall!

The 2011 RGRS Gift Guide: Part 1

3 Dec

It’s that time of the year again and what better way to kick off the season than to have an easy gift guide that will have everyone saying, “Wow, she/he really surprised me with that (fill in fun gift here)?!

This is not just any old guide though. I’ve actually been told that I give the best gifts. I think part of it has to do with that fact that I love shopping vicariously through other people but may I add that being a great listener as well as knowing where to source gifts that have a touch of  personality really helps too!

These guides are not by “Brother”, “Girlfriend”, “Mom”, etc. I did do them by personality but not just any run-of-the-mill type. Chances are if you read this site often, you actually know at least one of these types very well. Tonight features our first personality type, “The Label Whore.”

Yup, no explanation necessary, although I will proceed. She/he only wears the latest and greatest. Yes, even the nail polish is Chanel. Despite what people may think, this is actually a tough type to buy for. Just when you think you have them down, they are all sick of Balenciaga and onto Proenza……
