In this season of giving, we love to shop our friends’ brilliant designs, fabulous jewelry and scrumptious delectables. Hilary has put together an assortment of some of her favorite items on her gift and wish list:
“I love a little sparkle and these beautiful jewelry pieces add just the right bling. And what fashionista wouldn’t love this gold Glamourpuss jacket. For the gentlemen in your life, a personalized golf score holder is just the ticket; a mahjong tote for the newest craze or a beautiful straw bag for those more beach inspired. Our friends have you covered. Merry Merry!!”
And a special mention or two to some other friend’s brands we love to shop and promote.
Ala von Auersperg created her iconic brand with the goal of dressing women of all ages and sizes allowing them to feel confident in Ala’s beautiful and versatile pieces. Her elegant designs translate into pieces to be layered or mixed & matched; and her diaphanous creations fold to almost nothing to pack and wear like a dream.
aRossGirl was launched in 2015 by Amanda Ross well known in the fashion world for her impeccable style and taste. An influencer to the core, Amanda’s style has been honed by her many years discovering the unique and the extraordinary. Her direct-to-consumer site is open for business – and don’t miss the pop-up at Holiday on Mad, 795 Madison Avenue.
Hilary’s daughter, Sophie, has been with the ASHA By Ashley McCormick team since the start and we have watched the brand grow in size and scope. Her delightful designs are feminine and whimsical inspired by Ashley’s well-traveled eye.
Her new line, Little Asha, offers collectibles for the young girls in your list.
We love the updated ladylike style by Jennifer Argenti inspired by her grandmother, Charlotte Brody. Fine fabrics and detailing is the hallmark of the collection created in the heart of New York City. The company honors those who pour their all into their craft, delivering unique pieces made to last.
Calling all sporty types. Kelly Corroon comes from a long line of independent, and well traveled women seeking to find adventure and inspiration in far away lands. Terrific gifts here for those hard-to-buy-for friends.
Are you feeling beautiful? Frederick Anderson’s style is made for you. A little naughty and a whole lot nice just like the designer himself bringing “Modern luxury back to New York.”
And while his fashion collection is at Saks on SALE, visit his website, Frederick Anderson, for his fab new bags.
North or South? Courtney Moss’ GlamourpussNYC is well heeled in both locales. For colder climes, nothing beats Courtney’s stylish furs and faux. And her collection of caftans, dresses and hats are for the beach to lunch crowd in the sunshine. Plus The Warehouse Sale is ongoing now to snatch up some last minute gifts. The 20- & 30-somethings love the cozy style.
If you want something truly special and commemorative, Jennifer Creel Jewelry offers so many personalized styles of bracelets, necklaces, rings and charms. Whether it be for family or friends, her “classic with a twist” designs make elegant keepsake gifts for those near and dear.

Libby Fitzgerald launched Sea Star Beachwear in the summer of 2015, creating the ultimate summer and water sport shoe and lifestyle brand for the whole family. Reimagining the classic espadrille design, the shoes feature a water friendly neoprene upper and a protective rubber sole, encouraging you to get your feet wet. I have worn them in the water, on a boat, and on hikes around St. B’s — it is the all-purpose travel shoe. This is THE PERFECT STOCKING STUFFER for everyone on your list.
Lauretta Kiddle’s philosophy is to “bring the beach back home” encouraging all of us to infuse bright, vivid colors and a sexy carefree resort style into our everyday lives. Walker & Wade, named after her two sons, transports the Bali experience right into your closet and says “let’s party” in the most expedient way. It is “Beach to Table” fashion and we are all in!
And last but not least, we offer you our very own W2WW Travel Bags, known far and wide as “The bags that pack themselves.”
Wherever you roam this holiday season, we wish you inspiration, appreciation, and love.
