Happy Holiday Hoorah!

Today is one of my favorite shopping days of the year--it's the premiere of the God's Love We Deliver Holiday Catalog!

While this year's catalog doesn't have as many beauty items as years past, there are some great finds, like: the above-pictured Michael Kors Metallic Clutch; fun cards from Jonathan Adler, Ruben Toledo and William Ivey Long; interesting books (including Classic Greenwich Style, a great coffee table tome); and lots more including an auction featuring Blahnik, Ferragamo and lunch with Mario Buatta*! Best of all, all proceeds go directly to getting people suffering from HIV/AIDS the meals and medicine they desperately need.

Tip: if you click on the "shop all items" icon, you'll see a somewhat different selection of items than if you click on each of the individual categories, including sale items from last year's catalog (last year I gave the Burberry garden apron--a steal now for $39.99--and it was a HUGE hit, and the Lilly Pulitzer placemats and napkins for just 24 smackers for a set of four are perfect for the Lilly lover in your life!).

Happy shopping!

*Do note, however, that the auction items ALWAYS go for lots more than their estimated values. But it's always fun to feel like an upper east side doyenne by bidding on a few anyway!
