I'm kicking off this season's gift guide series with a BIG one... Timeless, quality investment pieces (and closet staples) for any woman in your life. I think Christmas is the time of year when most girls put the things on their list that they wouldn't (or couldn't) purchase for themselves. Why not add that Michele watch you've been lusting after for years? I sure have! Every woman needs a classic pair of Louboutin's, a Burberry trench, and a David Yurman "cable classics" piece (any of them really... necklace, ring, bracelet), in her closet. If you live in a cold weather climate like me, there is absolutely nothing better than the warmest (and chicest) down parka money can buy. Seriously, Canada Goose guarantees that they are the warmest parka on the market. Polar Vortex what? An LBD is a given in every single woman's closet, but this one is just to die for, and is so worth the investment. That baby will never go out of style.

Leather gloves aren't a huge investment, but get a neutral colored pair, and you will wear them with absolutely everything in the winter months. Plus, they finish off a cold weather look so perfectly, and why not personalize them by adding a monogram while you're at it? It's the perfect gift. The Stuart Weitzman Lowland's are a no brainer. They are by far the most gorgeous suede over-the-knee boots ever made in my opinion, and they come in a variety of amazing colors. Oh and those skinny jeans by 7 FAM? I just bought them, and they've been added to my list of closet staples. The slim illusion really do what they say they will... They are the most comfortable jeans I've ever worn, look incredible on, and make you feel like a million bucks all at once!

I could go on and on about all the pieces I think should be in every girls closet, but I won't. Hopefully this post inspired you while looking for gifts for your mom, sister, daughter, wife, etc. or even inspired you enough to add one or two of the pieces to your own Christmas list (half of them are on mine!). Conveniently, Nordstrom carries most of the items above for a one-stop shopping experience (I tried to link a lot back to their site). A few more of my favorite investments pieces and staples are below too, and a men's version to come next week... Happy shopping!
