Venti Girl Holiday Gift Guide: The Posh Princess


As a general rule I frown upon gifts that tell a recipient how to dress or how to decorate their homes. The idea of giving clothing to an adult or offering someone some form of home decor seems very imposing and assuming.

There are a few exceptions, however. If you're giving the gift to a love interest or very, very good friend whose taste (or burning desire) you absolutely know, then by all means forge ahead. In this case, the Vanessa Knox one-shoulder, curve hugging knit top is one such item that your favorite fashionable female would be hard pressed to refuse.

Designed with Grecian styling in a buttery soft jersey rib, this flattering silhouette creates a sexy look for night out glamour. I love it best in violet or mouse, but charcoal offers far more versatility. For added drama she might pair this with an arm full of bangles, tousled hair and skinny black pants. As gift-giver you might consider some dramatic earrings to top off the look. Caution: she (and you) should brace yourselves for compliments from this fabulous wardrobe addition. It's attention you both are likely to enjoy all season long.

What the beautiful people are saying...

It is a cute top. With respect to your rule about gift-giving, I completely agree. My one exception is for my husband. His entire wardrobe is, basically, composed of all gifts from me. I figure, on many occasions, he's part of my outfit, so he BETTER look good with me;)

Wow that is GORGEOUS!!!

That top is AMAZING! Love it!

Something to say, gorgeous?
