Among all of the neutrals, I like camel the most. It’s not heavy compared to black, not harsh compared to white. Also doesn’t make me depressed as the 50 shades of grey do. It’s warm, understated, and sophisticated. It’s the color of the earth: makes us feel sturdy and reliable. It compliments all the other beautiful colors without competing. It’s the color you usually ignore, but couldn’t live without.

With the major promotions going on now, I decided to take full advantage of them and get things that have been on my list for a while for each family member… and some for myself.

These five places are where I always keep an eye on, and have been fortunate enough to get things I want the most: Shopbop (top must have is this “it bag”, now 35% off with code BIGEVENT12! Plus their year-round 70% off sales, great place to get all the iconic pieces that rarely go on sale combined with great deals); Saks Fifth Avenue (It’s the place I score high-fashion pieces. Various discounts now plus free shipping/return with code HOLIDAY); Ralph Lauren (you can never go wrong with Ralph Lauren. Extra 25% off and free shipping); Nordstrom (With free shipping and returns every day, it is a reliable place where I don’t need to worry about promotion code and expiration date). J.crew (My favorite affordable brand. 25% off with code COLOR25 both in-store and online. Stores may have deeper discount whereas you have more size options online. Popular pieces sell out quickly).

In my opinion, the best gift is what he or she wants but don’t necessarily need or splurge on. Below are my picks, hope can give you some inspirations. Don’t forget to share with me your gift ideas!
