Holiday Gifts for the Fashion Forward
December 19, 2005

Want to look like you stepped right off the runway when you hit those holiday parties this year? Well, you're in luck! Our Terri Seymour stopped by Los Angeles' trendy Patty Faye Boutique to ask owners Erin Anderson and Carla Helmholz what you need to be in style this season.

"It's the Victorian look which is very happening this year," Anderson said.

For example, a unique, handmade corset looks great with straight-leg jeans, metallic heels and a glittery clutch.

Meanwhile, tweed pants, an asymmetrical sweater and casual boots are perfect for the office. "Tweed will take you into nighttime," Helmholz insisted.

Or you can show some skin with a navy and copper halter top, a great necklace and sexy sandals.

If you're giving fashion as the ultimate gift this year, Anderson and Helmholz have some cool suggestions, including Puella camisole and leggings, a sexy clutch by Golden Bleu or handcrafted necklaces.

Finally, for the person who has everything, the fashion duo suggests a pair of fur-lined cashmere slippers.
