A Few of Our Favorite Things

With the holidays coming up and glittering Chirstmas decorations everywhere you look, I became inspired to compile a "few of our favorite things" that I will either treat myself to or hope someone else has on their gift list for me.  (If you are a plus-size fox on my Xmas list you may be receiving some of my fave things!)

If you have read ANY number of my blog posts, this does not come as a shock. I usually swoon over dresses that fit and flatter, but as soon as I saw this David Meister stunner at Saks, I started to drool. Accentuates a smokin' hot hourglass and hides flaws. The luxe fabric and sequins make this dress a triple-threat on my lust list!!

 The best thing about the holiday party season is the uptick in dressing up. That means more dresses, shimmer and glam. Leading me to my next few items on the list...

Glam handbags!
A statement bag is all a girl needs to look and feel fabulous during a season too snowy for sexy heels. When you are covered up in your standard winter coat and hat, at least a bold bag will let your personality shine!

 Coach, "Poppy" dark blue sequin bags, $579 (smaller ones for under $200) Ebay.com

Betsey Johnson, Purple Rose bag, $148

Shiny Objects!
In the spirit of all of the decorations, twinkle lights and gleaming ice, I crave all things shiny during Christmastime. Though one day I hope to get myself that 6-carat yellow-diamond ring  in the store window in my building, I am more than satisfied with cheap bling like these! :)

Juicy Couture, rhinestone hoop earrings, $58, Von Maur

Seriously just search "Sequin" on sites like Old Navy and Target to score some cheap, festive gear to make you look more exciting than what's under the tree.  Even the sparkly pillows are cool!

Rock 'n' Roll!
Most know that I am obsessed with music and collect old records. I would love to get a rare bootleg, memorbelia or box set of some of my favorite artists, but if you are shopping for a music lover and are not sure what bands she is into, I say go for a set of record frames. It will create sassy decor for all the rockers on your list who had no way to display her fave collectibles. Studded punk-rock jewelry works too!

Shimmery eyeshadows and glittering glosses are always a good gift for any gal on your list. Stumped on what shades to go for? Get her a Sephora gift card! It's like the gift that will make her happy twice - once when she opens it and then when she has the fun of going shopping!

Speaking of gift certificate....

Spa Treatments!
There is nothing more luxurious and incredible than a massage. Spa Finder is the BEST place to get get gift cards from since the gift recipient can search 1,000s of spas in her area and find a place that suits her desires. Coupled up? Get a massages side-by-side for a couples day of indulgence.

Champagne and Flute set, $84, GiftTree.com
Ok so to me Jack Daniels is just as useful to me as a pricey bottle of Dom, since they both create a party, but for a gift a bottle of bubbly or a nice scotch is decadent and gift-worthy.
As a 40F bra size, it is pretty hard to find sexy lingerie that fits, but Frederick's of Hollywood, the original purveyor of sexy wares, has a great selection of plus-size panties and slips with leather or lace.
"Katherine" chemise, $26, Fredericks of Hollywood

Simone Perele Luxury Lace Lingerie, $99 bra

Leopard print!
Few things are as bold or foxy. We at Foxy Roxy don't care what it is, it is better in leopard!!
Leopard flats, Zappos.com

L'objet Leopard champagne-scented candle, $95, Neiman Marcus

Luxe Fabrics!
There is nothing like plush velvets and soft silks to make you feel like hotter than ever, even in a cold winter. I love this holiday-perfect wine colored wrap top, that will cover big arms and highlight your cleavage. 

Anna Scholz, Velvet Top, $235, Saks Fifth Avenue

Have a foxy, fabulous, winter holiday season!
