No Clue What to Buy for Your Gal for the Holidays? Go Vintage.
Recently I shared a few great ideas for shopping vintage for guy gifts. Now it is time for the ladies.

Finding gifts for the ladies is, I must admit, a lot easier due to sheer volume of choices and stores. I once again enlisted the help of Dawn Bell (a.k.a my vintage fairy godmother) and the great people at Antiques & Interiors at the Pavillion, Grace Hart & Co., Reply on 19th Street and Etsy shops Height of Vintage and Anitantique.
And now for the gifts...
Her coffee table is stacked high with new and old editions of Vogue, Elle, V Mag and CR Fashion Book. Her closet is her 2nd bedroom and Fashion Week is a national holiday. Don't go clothes shopping for this girl, instead look for great accessories or the tools of her trade.

Her Twitter location is "Everywhere" and her Instagram has more pictures of plane wings than selfies. She lives out of her suitcase for fun, not for work. Her go to gifts have a global feel and show off her love of travel.
