{Gift Guide} 15 Wonderful, Wearable gifts.

What would an FOF stylist buy this year . . . for herself? Our FOF Fashion gurus have the gorgeous–but affordable–answers. Fifteen fab gifts, (almost) all under $100–all FOF approved.



FOF Style Guru Glenyse Thompson is a personal home and wardrobe stylist and the creator of Styleosophy.

1. Brass Sea Necklace from Lilah Gabriel, $235
“Worn with with a crisp white shirt, a t-shirt or a black dress, this beautiful piece would be a stand-out! It’s saying so much you wouldn’t need any other jewelry.”


2. Songs from the Heart Dress, $68.
“I look for items that are wearable in a variety of climates, unique and inexpensive. My first request would be a comfy, customized dress from Kelans Art Couture. Send Kelans your measurements and they sew the dress to fit you exactly. You can even choose the fabric color.”


3. JazJewelz Abalone and Brass Necklace, $27
“Easily create a complete outfit when you pair the heart dress with a serious statement necklace. Jazjewlz repurposed materials to create this stand-out (and very affordable) piece. Also love their Blue Tagua Nut Necklace.”



FOF Style Guru Susan Hersh is a Ford model and the host and executive producer of Meet The Experts.

4. Bernardo Packable Down Vest, $78.00
“Lightweight, warm (without being bulky) and universally flattering. This is a great gift for anyone who runs around doing errands (i.e. everyone). Comes in bright, lush colors as well as neutrals.”


5. Echo Touch Tech Gloves, Starting at $32
“Brilliantly designed to work with touch screens, so you don’t have to take your gloves off to futz with your iphone! Comes in 30 different styles, from fair isle, to cashmere, to ‘cheetah.'”



FOF Style Guru Terry Gibralter is the Sr. Vice President and Creative Director at Grey advertising as well as a fashion stylist and the creator of these clever work accessories.

6. Audrey Necklace from MoMa Store, $98.
“Vintage-inspired and perfect for the holidays and beyond. I’ve bought many well-priced pieces at MoMA and they never fail to garner lots of attention.  People always seem surprised when I say where they’re from–even more so when I tell them the price!”


7. Helene Berman Faux Fur Collar $46
“A cool addition to a fitted sweater, a sheath dress or a narrow coat. Love the great price and the fact that its faux!  Found it on The Outnet, one of the designer discount sites I check every day.”


8. Sumana Dress from Anthropologie, $198
“Checks two of my common shopping boxes: (1) colorful and (2) slightly ethnic. I love the boho print, and I can see it over velvet skinny jeans or leggings, or on an island getaway if I get lucky enough to have one.”



FOF Style Guru Lovey Dash is a Beverly Hills-based personal stylist.

9. “Lovable” flat from Nine West, (starting at $42)
“I’m madly in love with this deal of the century. Why buy Prada when I can have these ballet slippers for $42$?”


10. Monica di Creddo Tropicalia Ring ($74) and Tropicalia Rose Ring ($84)
“Move over Dior. Love these rings–especially the Swarovkski Crystal baguettes. I would like two, please!”


FOF Linda Cohen owns her own consulting business specializing in retail merchandising.

11. Michael Kors Leather Wrap Bracelet, $75
“I wear a lot of black in the winter so I like accessories that add color and texture This Michael Kors bracelet gives you just the right amount of sophisticated “bling” for the holiday season as well as any vacation or warm weather climate.”


12. Calypso St. Barth Sari Scarf, Kipour Scarf and Lady Scarf ($135 each)
“Scarves that you can wear 12 months of the year (with jeans or to work) are perfect gifts. I like the weight of this scarf as well as the print and beads–bohemian and chic.”


13. Ann Taylor Icicle Beaded Scarf, $68
“Subtle ‘bling’ you can wear with a cashmere sweater and pants, jeans and a tee-shirt our any winter coat.”


14. Ann Taylor Golden Lace Long Necklace with Chains, $98
“This Gatsbyish necklace has the most magnificent 1920s feel. It’s capable of taking your favorite jeans, blouse and heels to an even more fabulous place. Add it to any holiday dress and use the 2″ extender, because some pieces just look sexier and richer when you leave them long.”



FOF Style Guru Sherrie Mathieson is a celebrated costume designer and stylist who has worked with everyone from Susan Sarandon to Brooke Shields. She is the author of two guides to finding great style after 50, Forever Cool and Steal this Style.

15. Recycled Rubber Bracelets from Made with Love, $28 for a set of 18
“These are fun, inexpensive and come in 8 stylish colors. (I love the orange.) Best of all, the profits go to L’Empire des Enfants, a center for homeless children from the streets of Dakar, Senegal.”

  • nascarblue3

    I haved lived by the ocean since I was a little one, so I have alot of respect & years collecting shells, unique rocks, etc. To me this necklace is very unique, it shows the designer loves the oceans, rivers, etc, and most importantly what the waters create on the ocean and river floors, beauty, to me she borrowed from the ocean floor and created this necklace knowing the history that goes back millions of years, she, in my opinion has a very unique eye for what the ocean floor has to offer, I tryed a couple of times to create a pair of earrings from the shell of oysters, it is not as easy as it may seem, so kudos to you Lilah. I lost both of my parents, my dads eyes were light blue and thankfully I inhernated his eyes, he was and still is my heart, I think in part that is why my love of the ocean and this necklace remind me of my dad, I want to thank you for a rare chance to win this very unique necklace that already has memories for me, happy holidays to you and your family.

    The ooo-la-la Lilah Gabriel Brass Sea necklace FOF Fashion Guru Glenyse Thompson picked is so stunningly fabulous that I checked out more Lilah Gabriel accessories and then take a look at Glenyse’s Styleosopy.

    What a wonderful way to add some colorful bling to an outfit. This necklace is beautiful.

  • bclaxton

    I love #1 the brass sea necklace. I ahve just the outfit to show it off well. The necklace with the 20’s vibe (14) is also awesome but I’m pretty short so I might not be able to carry that one off. The dress at 8 is great as well. don’t like the colors but turn that to gree, blue or purple and I would love it.

  • BlueBear

    The Audrey necklace caught my eye immediately. I collect vintage jet jewelry and, while I know this is probably not jet but glass, I still love the look of it. I also love anything by Anthropologie. They just know how to make great clothes that don’t break the bank. So many choices, so little chance of winning, but it sure would make my day if I did win!

  • eddyrobey

    Marvelous necklace. One of the joys of aging is being able to wear bling which would be indiscreet on younger women.

    Lovely selection! I’d wear almost any of it, but i particularly like the brass sea necklace and the darling, colorful flats! If anybody is looking for ideas- for me- please go for the necklace! It’s expensive, but I can wear it forever and ( are you listening, granddaughters??) I can leave it to you in my will!

    My favorite color is blue so this would be lovely.

  • Mary G

    Statement necklaces are the best! Really make an outfit. Craft marketplace etsy.com also has lots of great choices.

  • olga martin

    I would definately buy the dress or the necklace in blue as they are my style. I have to say that I never buy much for myself this time of the year and wait until March for my birthday- just seems more personal and we have seriously cut down on the waste of money that needless gift giving ends up being.

    Thanks so much.

  • Rennie

    My daughter would look lovely in this necklace. I hope I win it for her!

  • susan

    I love the colors in that necklace! That would go well with my wardrobe 😉

    Beautiful necklace, looks like a piece of art. I love to hang a necklace over the side of a picture frame to showcase it when I’m not wearing it.

  • tfanmom@aol.com

    What an outstanding necklace! I would absolutely love to adorn myself (and hide my slightly wrinkled chest :-)) with this beautiful and unique item.

  • Marsha

    I love to shop on line museums for unique and comfortably priced gifts. I love the necklaces here!
    Another good tip is to look at the gift stores that belong to national parks. There is always something special at a very reasonable price.
