It’s very likely that this year (more so than in previous) you’re shopping for one of the best gifts for dog lovers. And it’s not a coincidence. While most of those pandemic behaviors we all indulged in feel like blips (banana bread had its moment in the sun, we all bought matching sweatsuits, and maybe started roller skating) but one trend had a longer shelf life—pet ownership. Though it does feel odd to consider Getting a dog a fad, there’s been an undeniable uptick. reebok black shoes Since March of 2020, nearly 20 people in my close circle have adopted dogs. Even I jumped on the bandwagon, taking home a corgi puppy, Wally, that September. But it’s not just me and my friends who welcomed a new pet into their lives. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the number of people who were looking to foster a dog in L.A. and New York last 2020 at least doubled, and it’s estimated that up to 47% of households in the United States now have a dog. With so much more time spent at home over the past months, having a pet around to provide affection, support, and distraction seemed sensible.
Now, pandemic puppies are getting older, settling in as family members. Looking ahead to the quickly approaching holidays, the best gifts for dog lovers just might reign supreme because there’s nothing quite like the joy of purchasing something joy-inducing for a furry friend. The best gifts for dog lovers is one that both pup and parent can enjoy, whether a nice-looking dog bed, chic harness and leash sets, or even dog-themed fashion items.
No matter the occasion—and especially around the holidays—it’s important to celebrate those women nearest and dearest to you with a carefully chosen gift. From a pocket-size luxury to a thoughtful token, a gift, no matter the cost or scale, can show someone that you’re thinking of them.
Shopping for a fashion enthusiast? reebok work boots Who could refuse a new padded cassette bag from Bottega Veneta or cozy-chic shearling slides from JW Anderson? Looking for something for someone who takes pride in their well-stocked beauty cabinet? They’ll surely delight in a limited edition lipstick. Still feeling overwhelmed? You can’t go wrong with something classic, like a pair of leather driving gloves or a gold bauble and a luxe velvet jewelry box to stash it in. A thoughtful gift will go a long way, maybe with a lovely, handwritten holiday card too.
Unless, of course, I’ve determined it’s absolutely essential that I get my hands on the title in question as soon as humanly possible, as was the case with Sally Rooney and Lauren Groff’s latest novels.
The thing about pursuing gifts for others is that you’re bound to stumble across something that’s better suited for you (right?). So when a gift for my husband didn’t meet Everlane’s threshold for free shipping, I had no choice but to add this cashmere bandana to the order.
Home decor can be tricky to gift. A succulent? Sure. A vase? Maybe. Artwork and wall hangings? Generally better to skip. After several months spent hunting for a narrow-ish, vertically proportioned asymmetrical mirror to grace the last unadorned wall kurtka w kratę damska in my living room, I didn’t see the point in waiting any longer to complete the space.
Some items don’t necessarily make sense to those around you until they’ve been successfully incorporated into your wardrobe. To request this pair of shearling clogs from my husband would require too much explaining. Where would you wear those? Why do you need them? Are you supposed to wear socks with them? Instead, I bought them for myself and can now happily say I wear them almost everywhere, never without socks.
As someone who wears almost exclusively black pants and white tee shirts, a forest green turtleneck is about as flamboyant as things get in my closet. But the thought of buying a black beanie to wear with my black jacket, grey scarf, black jeans, and black boots was simply too grim to go through with. Enter: this incredibly cozy pink White + Warren beanie that makes dressing for subzero temperatures just a tiny bit more bearable.
I’ve been searching for a small-ish, all-purpose black bag for over a year, to no avail. So when my friend (and Vogue communications guru) Jill Weiskopf told me she’d found the softest leather bags on the internet, I knew my moment had finally arrived. After an endless wiatrówka kurtka search for the right piece, there was just no way I was going to wait another several weeks to start wearing it.
Scented candles make a great gift—or do they? More than once, I’ve given a friend what I considered a deliciously scented candle, only to notice it sitting unburnt on their bookshelf months later. Scents are subjective, and as such, it makes sense to snag a candle whenever you find one you really love.
Aya Nakamura has well and truly won over the music scene. Her album Nakamura has sold more than one million copies worldwide. However, for some time, the fashion industry has taken interest in this new generation diva. She was seen at the Balenciaga haute couture fall 2021 show, leaving behind her streetwear wardrobe for an ultra chic emerald green silhouette. 
Cover girl of Vogue France November 2021 issue (the first under the new name), Aya Nakamura proves her fashion credentials by posing in the latest objects of desire from the most cutting edge brands and fashion houses of the moment. We take the opportunity to fjallraven kanken backpack review her style evolution, which features sporty looks and modern glamour. Here's a flashback.
Below, a list of all the very best gifts for myself that I plan to (or have already) purchased, because after a certain age, writing a wish list can start to feel, well, silly. That’s not to say I don’t see the value in it, but as a (mostly) financially solvent adult human, the exercise of sending my loved ones a curated list of items that I want, but have tacitly agreed not to order for myself, has become decidedly overindulgent.
Besides, once I’ve identified something I need, I see no point in gambling with size availability, holiday shipping deadlines (supply chain!), and the statistical unlikelihood that someone will decide to give it to me. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but as a small-space dweller fjallraven bag who manages to over-research even the most straightforward purchase, I’d rather not leave anything to chance.
So this year, I asked any interested parties (really, just my mom) to consider sending me a snarky greeting card instead of a gift. In turn, I was able to rationalize my own rampant consumerism, indulging in seven best gifts for myself—no backorders, no guessing games.
I love receiving books as gifts. There is never a need for speculation about sizing, and they comfortably straddle the line that separates necessity and indulgence. Generally speaking, it’s no problem to wait a few weeks to see whether someone has gifted me a particular title while I work my way through the already teetering stack on my bedside table.
Unfortunately, many of Diana’s best Chanel moments came after her exit from the royal family, and Spencer’s story plays out during a period where courtiers controlled her wardrobe. “There were all these restrictions to consider,” says Durran. “She wore more Chanel later in life than during the late ’80s and early ’90s.” The royal dress code, which contains rules about everything from hem lengths to nail-polish colors, couldn’t be ignored. Still, when Durran happened upon the film’s pièce de résistance, a strapless gown from Chanel’s spring 1988 haute couture collection, she wasn’t about to change it. “Initially, I was worried we’d have to add sleeves and hide her arms because of the protocols,” she says. “When I had the fitting with Kristen and Paolo in London, she put it on and it was just so great, the perfect look for an extremely glamorous princess. We hadn’t even planned to use it green bay packers jersey for such a large chunk of the movie, but it was just too good to pass up.”  
Adorned with pleated tulle ruffles, an appliqué satin belt, and a delicate frieze composed of fabric florets, the gown was appropriately opulent. Still, after more than 30 years in the archives, the original was far too fragile to function as a costume. “It was too precious—you couldn’t even take it outside,” says Durran. “Thankfully, Chanel came back to us and said they could completely replicate the piece.” It took 1,034 hours—700 devoted solely to the intricate embroidery—to duplicate the couture look. With five seamstresses in Chanel’s atelier working nonstop, they were able to turn the project around in just under a month. “We’re indebted to them,” says Durran. “They had almost no time and were able to recreate every detail. In the end, the only difference was that the new version fit Kristen even better than the first.”
Though it wasn’t the only piece recreated for the film, the couture gown features prominently in the final cut and its poster, which shows Diana crumpled on the ground, her body shrouded in layers of tulle. For Stewart, the couture reflected Diana’s privileged yet unhappy existence. “It’s heartbreaking how gorgeous it was,” she says of the look. “We went through the archives thinking, What is the dress? [And] it was so undeniably the right one. To see someone on the bathroom floor in such a dress is truly heartbreaking. You can’t imagine someone being unwell in a dress [that is] so spectacularly beautiful, unique, and one of a kind. I have such jersey green bay packers nostalgia for it. Usually, I don’t have an emotional reaction to my movie posters, but every time I see Spencer’s, it makes me want to cry.”  
For Durran, helping to facilitate such powerful responses from Stewart was the costume design’s primary role.   “My work is supporting her as an actress,” she says. “Watching the final movie was overwhelming because the only thing I wanted was for my work to give Kristen all she needed to achieve her performance. I believed in her so much, and she’s mesmerizing as Diana.”
