So, here you’ll find my personally curated selection from the C Wonder Store (yes, they have stuff for guys), Teavana, the Art of Shaving, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Day Furs.

Have you been outside recently? You need a scarf. Like, really bad.
Scarves are great because they’re basically a publicly acceptable way to wear a blanket around your neck. Just take a look at this wondrous thing Lenny Kravitz did two years ago. But if you aren’t as bold as Mr. Kravitz, then here are a few other options you might want to consider to protect that precious neck of yours this winter.
This Double Cable-Knit Eternity Scarf from Urban Outfitters is a chunky and perfect way to keep warm. It comes in black, red, and grey… not to mention that it can double as a pillow for catnaps at your desk.
If eternity/infinity scarves aren’t your thing, what is wrong with you? But whatever, you can still get this Marled Chunky Oblong Scarf from Urban Outfitters. Still chunky, perfect, and warm. Still able to use as a pillow. Just, you know… less infinite.
In you’re in the market for something more seasonally appropriate and classic, I’m in love with this burgundy plaid Mosaic Wool Scarf from J.Crew. Festive, retro, and casual, all in one look.
Seeking a neck so warm Dante’s Inferno would be jealous? This Bickley + Mitchell Scarf from Urban Outfitters has a cozy fleece lining that provides the ultimate winter protection.
The Rail department at Nordstrom also has a variety of pieces perfect for any guy looking to up his scarf game. One of my favorites is this Geometric Knit Scarf with the fringed tips finish.

Hello Fashion Lovers,
It’s almost that time of the year where we hunt through our local Simon Malls to pick and choose our favorite gifts for the special people in our lives. I was preparing myself for Black Friday, making gift lists and wish lists, when I stumbled upon an entire Kate Spade Accessories collection (available at the Shops at Mission Viejo and Brea Mall locations) that is perfect for any special lady, best friend or sister! And if you can’t find anything for them… then at least you can find something for yourself. Especially when each item is covered in black and white polka dots or adorned with a classic bow, it’s hard not to fall in love with it all. The Kate Spade collection has everything from bluetooth speakers, bow magnets, adorable notebooks, pretty ornaments and, of course, beautiful hand bags. So make your list and check it twice. This Friday, Nordstrom will have a wonderful Black Friday sale and you’ll find plenty of these items heavily discounted! So get ready to swing by your local Simon Mall and stock up on these beauties!
Items Shown: Kate Spade Tacky Bow Ornament, ‘cedar street – mini maise’ crossbody bag, ‘le pavillion’ iPhone 5 charger case, ‘wedding belles – small grayden’ bracelet case, ‘jackpot jewels’ leather wrap bracelet, Kate Spade ‘it’s written in the stars’ mini notebook, dot thermal travel mug, bow magnets (set of 6), ‘metro’ scallop dial leather strap watch, 34mm, Kate Spade’all aboard – clock’ coin purse, Le Pavillion Bluetooth Speaker, Kate Spade ‘garden drive’ square jewelry box
