Pamela Pekerman is a style expert, host, TV personality, and soon-to-be mom! She throws regular events in NYC introducing guests (myself included) to a plethora of brands spanning beauty, fitness/health, style and lifestyle products and is a true tastemaker in the world of fashion —- can you tell I’m a fan? So I asked Pamela for her must-haves for the season and here’s what made her list:
Jill Zarin Facets Ring ($58)– cocktail rings make a big statement and this one talks from all sides. I love how sleek and modern the shape is, with just a hint of crystals. Best of all in December 35% of the purchase price goes to the Ilya Peckerman Fund Vasculitis Foundation, which raises money for research grants to find a cure for these rare, autoimmune diseases. www.
Pinch Provision kits ($15) – adorably compact kits because you never know when you’ll need hairspray, double sided sticky tape or clear nail polish. A savvy gal is always ready to shine, no excuses. I’d like someone to get me the Labor Delivery Kit. http://shop.pinchprovisions.
LAGOS Jewelry macramé bracelets ($150) – they are fun to stack and made with much more care and style than most of the macramé jewelry on the market. This is a great gift for all my girlfriends. Each one can have her own color. http://www.lagos.com/
Bindya cashmere/silk scarf ($135) – they feel amazingly, luxurious again your skin. Plus, scarves are so versatile. I love to wear them around my neck, draped over the shoulder, looped I front through a belt, or accenting the handle of my bag. http://www.chictweak.com/
Burberry Brit Rabbit Fur Vest – what can I say, I’m Russian. We love our fur. The right vest will never go out of style and transition from work to weekend (some even for weddings) seamlessly. For faux options, I keep the budget way under $100! Designers charging more are out of their minds because you can get real fur under $150 at off-price retailers or end-of-season sales at big box retailers like Saks and Bloomingdales. http://www1.bloomingdales.com
Grace Carter Shoe Covers – if you have someone on your list that loves her stilettos and can’t even think of putting her tootsies in rain boots, this is a must-buy. I hate the phrase “must-buy”, so trust me when I say THESE are a must-buy! The quality is amazing and the reaction when you slip them off is priceless. http://www.gracecarter.com/
