After the Holidays we thought we might go off the deep end if we saw one more ounce of red plaid. That being said, we’ve had some time off from the good-tidings and realized it’s still cold, and it’s January. We picked up this cropped 1940’s buffalo check jacket and 1960’s repaired fedora for less than $50 each at the Melrose Flea Market in LA and decided to give them some love. When paired back to black basics and a neutral boot, your look is mid-week, errand running gold.

We’re taking our bomber jacket into fresh territory post Holidaze by pairing with cream jeans and neutral staples. (If you haven’ already, be sure to erase those silly rules about white jeans and Labor day out of your memory). Aviator sunnies keep this look Top Gun friendly, but it will be clear you are not heading to a costume party.

All of this Christmas shopping we’ve been up to is giving us the urge to splurge on something tiny for ourselves.

Just for fun — and in hopes that one of our generous readers wanted to buy us something — we decided to compile our ‘Grownup Christmas List.’ However, unlike the Kelly Clarkson song, instead of no more lies and wars, we picked out our favorite wish-I-may-wish-I-might luxury items. Sorry we’re not sorry.

Check out our picks after the jump.

We asked. They told. (and told, and told)

Let’s get real, unless you’re a mind reader like Mel Gibson in ‘What Women Want,’ you’re likely clueless as to what your girlfriend/sister/mother/BFF wants for the holidays. Join the club. Since we here at WTJ are just about as ill-informed as you, we decided to invest in the help from some of our favorite female bloggers and insta-favs. We asked them to show us what they’re asking their men for this Christmas, just in time for you to step up your gift game.

  1. This teeth whitening combo could quite possibly be the most romantic gift a guy can gift his gal.
  2. What gal doesn’t get parched in the middle of the night? Keep this beautiful carafe and glass set bedside to stay hydrated…or put wine in it, whatever.
  3. Help your gal look festive this holiday season with our fav hair accessories.
  4. We are huge fans of this bag line…”Oversized Lady” is so chic and feminine. A must have for your special (over or under) sized lady.
  5. We love this 3D twist on the charm necklace repin’ peace & love.
  6. Ummmm…”shower wine“? yes, please.
  7. Who wouldn’t want to get a box of marshmallows featuring your fav images? Added bonus…you can always make s’mores if you’re not feeling any of the pics.
  8. If you’re a lady and you MUST scrape the ice off your car windows solo you might as well do it in style.

Give Good Gift: UNDER $100

This Holiday, our team has rifled through the cyber mess and weeded through the junk to put together a specially edited shop of the BEST gifts for under $100.

We’ve kept things simple and put everything right here on our homepage, just click…shop…score.  We’ll keep this note short, and the product lists long, so go ahead…whip out your wallets and fire up the macbook, you’re in for a treat (without the mess):

We’ve taken a break from stuffing ourselves to drop you all a quick note. Thank you so much for all of the support and site-lovin this year. Just last January we decided to try our hand at a little blogging… never did we think it would take off like it has. We’re truly thankful for your support.

Much love,

InstaVegas.
We (sadly) just came back to the arctic from a west coast jaunt and had a blast (especially visiting our Spotify BFF @littlemiala). Los Angeles & Vegas were our stops of choice and with a bit of west coast chill in the air, we opted for layered flannels, tees, and lightweight bombers. 

We raided our iPhone & Instagram for some warm weather flashbacks to perk our spirits while waiting for the ice to melt in Manhattan.

It’s in the bag.
Working and playing in New York City, we never know what we’ll be doing from one minute to the next. We keep a good bag of tricks for whatever comes our way. 

Big work meeting at 9am? Check. Drinks with friends after work at 7? Check. What?! A bike is available in Conor’s Soul Cycle class at 8 tonight?! Check.  

Burn Notice.
After a recent working lunch at ABC Kitchen in Manhattan, we decided to take a stroll through the main floor of ABC Home and came across our new obsession, ‘Eclectic’ candles by Tom Dixon. Inspired by British heritage and not remotely ‘girly; these cool candles will elevate the vibe of any room…breaking down the burns, after the jump.
