ANM Gift Guide: Gifts for Guys post image

As a guy, I can admit that we can be pretty tricky to shop for. In the past, I have felt really bad for the girlfriends who got me gifts that I didn’t really like, or had no need for, and felt really impressed by the ones who got it right.

Back in November, Sabrina asked me to start thinking about a list of great gifts for guys and told me that she had done gift guides for guys during previous holiday seasons but never really felt like she knew what she was talking about. When it comes to the holidays and gift-giving, I really don’t need much. Most of the time I would prefer that the girl I’m going out with doesn’t even get me a gift – I’d rather she just save her money than blow it on something I don’t need (that I would have to pretend to like).

As I started to think about gifts for guys, I realized how hard it is to shop for something I would actually appreciate and want if it were given to me. After several weeks of deliberation (right up to the deadline), I finally came up with my picks for great gifts that virtually every guy would appreciate.

A Worthy Investment: The Boyfriend Watch post image

These days, the greatest perk of having a boyfriend is having access to his wardrobe. Boyfriend jeans, boyfriend blazers, boyfriend shirts- taking the BF route is really where it’s at (when it comes to fashion at least!).

I have been on the prowl for the perfect boyfriend watch for a while now. The whole androgyny-chic trend has been going strong for a few seasons now and there is no greater way to inject your look with a bit of masculinity than with this must-have accessory. Whether you’re wearing a sweet ultra-femme frock, a sizzling cocktail dress, or jeans and a basic tee, an oversized man’s watch injects that perfect dose of irreverence that ups the cool quotient of any look.

I have searched far and wide for the best boyfriend styles out there. Read on to see what made my list! [Click here to keep reading…]

Spring Must Have: Trench Coats post image

Spring Must Have: Trench Coats


A classic trench-coat is one of those year-round must-have items that can always be counted on to up the chic-quotient of your look. A well-cut trench will never be outdated and is a wardrobe staple for current trend-setters such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Victoria Beckham, to name a few, and was one for fashion icons of the past like Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn.

If you’re a celeb, you can afford a classic Burberry trench (all the ladies above are wearing styles from the iconic fashion house), but don’t despair if you don’t have that much cash lying around because there are tons of fantastic trench styles out there at all price points!

When buying a trench, look got a style that allows for layering underneath so you can get mileage out of this item in the winter months, but still sleek and fitted so it doesn’t add bulk to your figure.

Top 5 Seasonal Splurges post image

Top 5 Seasonal Splurges


I, like many, am definitely feeling the economic pinch and have been forced to reassess the value of my purchases and discover the hidden virtues behind the concept of downsizing.

Now as an avid fashion fanatic who is constantly surrounded by amazing items and some of the best-dressed people ever, abstaining from the stores is downright TORTUROUS!

Every season I like to make a few key purchases, my anchor items if you will. In season’s past I was guilty of going beyond my rigid wishlist, but this time around I WILL show restraint by sticking to the items I know I need and forgoing the rest, because in truth, I have plenty of fabulous pieces to get me by and I know you do too. So after careful consideration, the following items are those I deemed worthy of the investment during this very woeful season.
