These picks will please any fashionista who loves the cutting edge and doesn’t want the exact same thing as everyone else.
The cool thing about these Alexandria-made glass and metal rings is that the glass “petals” are attached with stretchy string so the ring expands and contracts to fit the wearer. No need to worry that the ring won’t fit! Bonus: if you buy them online, they are 20 percent off now through Christmas! $58 from Poppi.
What fashionista wouldn’t want this in her closet? The selection of other prints, notecards, city- and college-inspired designs by this Richmond artist are all gift-worthy. $20 from Faye Street Studios .
Any makeup fiend will adore a chance to try five different mascaras and choose a favorite. Plus, the enclosed redeemable coupon for a full-size favorite makes this package a great deal. $28 from Sephora.
This selection of the season’s hottest lip colors is perfect for anyone who likes experimenting with style trends. $28 from Sephora.
Cross body purses are so in this season, as is fringe, so this one hits two trends, plus the metallic gold tone is eye catching. I recently purchased this bag at the Ivy Market in Richmond and I’m obsessed. I know the price tag is a little steep, but it’s a great choice if you want to really impress the style maven in your life. $188 from Beau & Ro.
This locally made silk scarf features a watercolor painting printed on an oversized wearable square. The colors are beautiful, unique and eye catching. $42 from SABartStudio.
These necklaces are handmade by Kay Adams and come in a variety of colors and lengths. They are perfect for gifts because you can pick a size and style for just about any preference. Prices range from $20 to $35 based on beads and length from Anthill Antiques.
I usually wouldn’t advise going out on a limb and buying a hat for a gift, but Ignatius hats are made in old-fashioned millinery style and these holiday fascinators will impress anyone who loves dressing up for an event. I’m dying to buy one. $85-$165 from Ignatius Hats.
These two elegant polish shades can be worn together or apart and are perfect for winter even after the holidays. $17 from Elements Beauty Shop.
Vapour Trick Stick Highlighter is a subtle illuminating cream that can be applied to the brow bone, lip bow, cheek bones, or anywhere the wearer wants a highlight. It’s a fun shimmer product, but it’s made with soothing chrysanthemum flower, anti-inflammatory eyebright herb and circulatory-enhancing horsetail herb and a chemical-free formula. The Dazzle shade is a perfect warming gold shade for use throughout the rest of winter. $20 from Elements Beauty Shop.
I can’t stop obsessing over these locally made Molly VA Made leather marbled clutches. The designer has shut down her online store for the rest of the year, but you can still find options like this one at Rosewood Clothing Co. $85 as well as smaller, less expensive sizes.
