Foxy Roxy's Holiday Gift Guide

                               Foxy Roxy's Favorite Things
 In my usual blog-related browsing I have come across a bunch of things that I would LOVE to see under my tree, and I'm sure your curvy cuties will love to receive. 
Here's the round up, but since they all ended up being so fabulous, the rankings don't really matter.  

1. Personalized Purse with her initials from Pink Monogram. This cross body leather bag with interchangeable monogram medallions are a thoughtful, unique gift she will love for years! 
Monogrammed Lather bag (many colors available),, $98

2. ASOS Curve Sequin Jacket. This can be worn over a dress or with jeans for a mix of dressed down and festive. Goes with everything and will make her feel like a queen like Liz Taylor when it flows as she walks. 
Sequin Kimono Jacket,, $92 (shown in black, also comes in white)

3. Lingerie from Frederick's of Hollywood. Nothing makes a woman feel special quite like something sexy for her curves from the store that invented racy lingerie. Hey significant others: not sure what to get your woman? Just browse the Plus section of Frederick's and pick something you want to see her in. Sometimes us curvy women need a little extra attention to remember how pretty we are and with this she will feel like a million bucks! (just remember to sneak a peek at her bra size before hand! )

Frederick's of Hollywood Lingerie. (satin robe shown $36)
4. The "Angel" Sweater from Victoria's Secret. It is warm, cozy, amazingly soft and hugs curves just right. Basic but with a little cleavage showing, this sweater can go from holiday baking to holiday parties. (an XL will fit most busty ladies)
Angel Cross-front Sweater (shown in Red Siren), Victoria's Secret, $49

5. Fortunoff Diamond Starburst necklace. Need something EXTRA special for that special someone? This amazing diamond pendant has a great look that can be worn every day and for fine jewelry, under $500 is a great price! 
Diamond Starburst,, $495

6. Sephora Eyeshadow Palette "In the Night". This collection of eyeshadows is shimmery, versatile and  extremely useful all-year-round. Works for everyone and the compact will look gorgeous on her dresser. 
Moonshadow Palette "In the Night",, $30

7. "Canary Diamond" faux ring. It may be just a fake CZ and not a precious yellow diamond, but if she loves the luxe look of yellow diamonds as much as I do,  you will love this affordable cocktail ring. There is one just like it (but real) in The Plaza Hotel's Fine Jewelry store that I just swoon over all the time but sadly had to wait to win the lottery first! 
Yellow Rhinestone ring,  AzureBella, $35

8. Bond No. 9 perfume. These sensual scents may be pricey but a bottle lasts years and the packaging is  beautiful enough to be an object of desire all on its own. Foxy Roxy favorite: The fresh grassy and floral notes of High Line. The Swarovski crystal bottles and gift sets are a whopping $500 but they are breathtaking!! 
fragrances from $170.00

9. Celebrity Replica Earrings. You may have seen them on Christina Aguilera and were green with envy but now that can be yours for under $100! 
Steve Sasco starburst earrings, $79

10. Silver Keepsake Bank. It is small, unique, and beautiful as it keeps your spare change or rings safe! Don't forget to get a name, initials or a message engraved on it too! 

Keepsake Savings Bank - Can be personalized!,, $39.95

Oooh Shiny Objects!!

Stunning Christmas red for only $28!!! 
OK so I may love metal music, muscle cars, Jack Daniels and other things that make me a bit tomboyish, but when I see anything glittering in the holiday window displays, I just turn into a little 5 year old girl!!

A message to all boyfriends who may be reading this: Shiny things rule!!! They wonder and amaze women and cats alike and always make me feel fierce, special and festive. Pretty universally if it sparkles, we will like it for a gift whether it's $5 or $500. Price doesn't matter as long as it's shiny and fun. Who doesn't like to get glam? Especially during the holidays when everything seems to twinkle. 

Only $20!!!
So when I went in search of a big, statement rhinestone necklace to pair with my Leopard dress for New Year's Eve, I went to the Garment District in NYC to one of the many costume jewelry stores. I found myself entranced by zillions of Swarovski crystals in crazy shapes and sizes, but the honeymoon was over once I saw the price tags.  

I feel that gaudy jewelry is amazing but I may not wear it enough to sink a huge investment in it and the vintage stores are priced more for antique stores rather than thrift stores. 

This is the one I bought for New Year's Eve. Dazzling! Only $48.00
Just when my hopes were dashed I found WhimZ Accessories! They are THE BEST FIND for jaw-dropping glitz on the web!! They had all the wild necklace designs, rhinestones and variety that the NYC stores had but for a quarter of the price. I thought that there had to be a catch. Was this a scam that will take ages to be delivered or in crappy condition once I got it? Was it going to be light like Halloween jewelry? 

Shown in Lavender for only $20
WhimZ WAS AMAZING!!!  I got a gorgeous necklace and earring set for UNDER $50 and it arrived in only a few days. Once I opened the box I got two big surprises: 
1) the quality was incredible- heavy set with great rhinestones
2) they sent me a FREE gift! I have no idea what qualified me for a gift but like a mystical fairy godmother, they knew exactly what I wanted and gifted me with rhinestone all-time essential. 

I couldn't be more pleased with WhimZ Accessories and urge you to deck yourself for the holidays in all their glitter and glam OR check them out for affordable gifts that will floor any recipient! 
Teal for $48

LOOK! They even have rings, brooches and bracelets....

Swoon!! Purple Peacock bracelet! $48

The glitter pots and sliver/gold eye liner make wonderful stocking stuffers!!
