TGIT. Coast to Coast.
(Thank God It’s Thanksgiving) One of our favorite holidays, Thanksgiving always proves to be a blast. Filled with food, family, friends, football and, yes, shopping.

JINGLE BELLE FROCK
For our Holiday 2011 campaign, we snuck off to one of our favorite locations in NYC’s Greenwich Village. With Carter Smith behind the camera shooting Karen Elson and Andrew Cooper, it was a very merry shoot.

Think chunky cardigans. Wool pants. Tweed jackets. Altogether. Mixed and matched — that’s where the real cool factor comes in. It’s amazing how a cable sweater layered over The Great White Shirt can become a modern revelation. Your turn to texture.
A MATCH MADE IN WINE-MAKING HEAVEN
Since we’re partnering with Clos du Bois this holiday season, we jumped at the chance to ask their head wine-maker, Gary Sitton, a few questions. And he took us, quite literally, on a tour… 1.
