Some genius items this week you won’t know how you lived without: an umbrella that closes outward, a belt with a built-in curve (no more gaps!), and a candle that can conquer any unpleasant scent. Plus the most “charming” way to count down to Christmas and cheese knives that elevate any buffet.
Angela: Unbelievabrella is the answer to all your umbrella issues. It won’t bend back or break in a gust of wind and it closes outward, making getting in your car so much easier. Best of all, it stands up to dry! (Available at Bellacara, $20)
Alicia: The ease of a woven knit dress is perfect when you’re traveling. This one won’t need ironing and will look and feel great from the moment you put it on until the final toast of the evening. The fit-and-flare style makes it flattering on most body types and we’re finding the print a welcome point of interest that keeps the eye engaged. (Available at TSALT, $338)
Gayla: These cheese knives are so unique and beautiful. They will elevate your holiday entertaining or make a beautiful gift. (Available at Coco Blanca, $75)
Elizabeth: Advent starts December 3 and we have the perfect calendar to help your little girls count the days down in style. This Nutcracker jewerly box comes with a bracelet and charms for each day. (Available at The Shoe Hive, $30)
Amy: Sydney Hale’s new fragrance, Coastal Juniper, is nothing short of amazing. With hints of juniper, wild berry, beach grass, and cedar, this candle will make any terrible smell a distant memory. (Available at Red Barn Mercantile, $32)
Celeste: Obsession Alert! Embrazio curved belts have a unique s-curved wrap that fit your hips and waist much better than any straight belt! There is no annoying gap when wearing with jeans or pants and it will not press into your hip bones…such comfort and style! We have many styles available, such as this gorgeous perforated belt, plus we have belts with studs and of course simple, classic leather. In gray, black, camel, and brown. (Available at Kiskadee, $88)
