Accessories Council Holiday Gift Picks

Monday, November 25, 2013

This past week, I attended the Accessories Council event, co-hosted by Liliana Vazquez (editor Cheap Chicas + style expert). It was held at the beautiful Manhattan Club at the Manhattan House. Such an amazing view of the city - wish I was able to get decent photos! I got there a bit late, since I was still busy at work. When I arrived, I was instantly distracted by the sushi & macarons and massages ;)

Accessories Council's President, Karen Giberson, and Liliana presented the top holiday gift picks for this season. We were able to walk away with most of the goodies - definitely helped me cut down my list for Christmas shopping!
