Hermes and Prada Holiday Gift Giving for Yourself – A Green Guide

It is that holiday gift giving time of year again and you are probably getting invitations to parties and booking trips to go see your families. Gift giving is always a stressful time of the year and you will need to figure out what to get your husband’s brother’s wife or your mother in law’s boyfriend for holiday gifts, but while doing that why not take a little time and give yourself something special for this time of year. You work hard you deserve it. What is it that you have wanted all year? Is it a Hermes birkin bag? A pair of Prada shoes? a Rag & Bone jacket?

This year we thought we would make gift giving even more rewarding for you to shop designers for yourself for the holidays by thinking Green. Why not look at items that may have been pre loved? When you buy something preowned you can get quite a great deal. You can also find items that are very hard to find or no longer being made. So many great finds can be found when you are not looking to shop for your favorite designers in the same place where everyone else is shopping. You may end up with a highly coveted piece that the designer no longer makes. Also you may find something for a loved one to fill your gift giving quota.

Case in point – the following items were rare finds on Ebay.com that I thought you may be interested in. They are all designers and in great condition. Think GREEN this holiday and save.

Rag & Bone Navy blazer regular $595 now 80% off

Rag & Bone sold out turquoise blazer regular $595 now 70% off

Iris Apfel Yoox Jewelry Collection

I am obsessed with Iris Apfel’s style because she is an icon that wears what she likes and mixes it up in such an eclectic fashion that even at 90 years old she looks COOL. I love her vintage giant round eyeglasses, her giant Flintstones looking jewelry and pins, and her comfy chic clothes. I am tempted to take a trip to Boston this summer just to see the 900 pieces of clothing she has donated for the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art. I am sure the collection includes orange cashmere sweaters and pants, elegant black coats, and giant sunglasses. The next best substitute to her authentic vintage eyeglasses would be to buy a pair of Eyebobs where she did a collaboration to create a line of eyeglasses and sunglasses. My obsession is definitely with her statement making jewelry. And I am so happy to see that she has it for sale now at Yoox.com. The pieces are just so grand and exquisite that you must own at least one piece. I want to find a pair of her eyeglasses or sunglasses somewhere and channel my own Iris Apfel.

Shop Iris Apfel now for her jewelry collection at Yoox.
