Tracking down the perfect present for the Glam Globalist might arguably be the most exciting task of your holiday shopping! After all, fun and fearless fashion is the name of the game when it comes to this ultra-stylish lady, so the options are pretty much endless. Whether she works at a modern art gallery, an indie record label, or even a travel magazine, the Glam Globalist is often turned out in a sophisticated mix of bright colors and bold patterns, and, much like the sartorial risktaker extraordinaire Solange Knowles, has a fondness for fashion-forward items with a unique, artsy twist. Considering all of that, we've sourced a handful of awesome gift ideas-like a Kabuki lip set from NARS and a penguin-emblazoned top by Charlotte Taylor-all of which are sure to please the GG in your life. Happy shopping!
Charlotte Taylor Penguin Blouse ($336)
There is no doubt in our minds that the Glam Globalist will go crazy for this darling penguin blouse by Charlotte Taylor. From the vibrant hues to the quirky print, it reflects the GG's sensibilities perfectly! In addition to this oh-so cute top, we recommend checking out the designer's entire collection, which includes a scarf covered in red ants and a silky button-up with tiny robots-it's fun fashion at its best! For a more affordable option, do yourself a favor and pick up Topshop's Buttercup Slash Neck Top ($75) today.
echo Sporty Touch Glove ($42) in Fuchsia
While gloves are always a must for protecting your hands from winter's chill, we know firsthand that having to take them off every time you want to use your phone can become quite frustrating. Fortunately, the tech-savvy team at echo created a pair of gloves that are not only stylish, but are also equipped with an eLink fabric that interacts with touch screen devices. That means the Glam Globalist can text and tweet without skipping a beat!
NARS Kabuki Mini Lip Set ($125)
Our subject's obsession with statement-making color extends to her beauty look too, as she's often experimenting with a bold lip or bright shadow. Speaking of the former, we have a hunch she'll dig the dramatic look of this mini lip set by NARS. Inspired by Japan's kabuki theater, the wooden bento box includes three rich shades, ranging from a soft pink to a deep red, and a hand-spun wisteria-wrapped kabuki lip brush to allow for easy application. This is one keepsake she'll definitely want to hold on to!
Topshop Madison Leopard Print Loafers ($64) in Animal Print
We couldn't think of a more fitting pair of shoes for the GG than Topshop's Madison Leopard Print Loafers. For starters, they are perfect in keeping with some of the season's most beloved trends-the classic loafer and the animal print-and it's obvious she'll adore the fluorescent hot pink color! And with an affordable price tag to boot, we wouldn't be surprised if these flats landed on your wish list too!
Henrik Vibskov Judith Laptop Case ($190) in Multi
A laptop is a necessary accessory for this creative girl on the go, which is why a cool case like this one from Henrik Vibskov is sure to be on her list of must-haves this year. We love the Southwestern vibe of the multi-colored pattern, especially the lux mix of wool and cashmere. We're also fans of O'Hanlon Mills' Knit Laptop Case ($29), which has a similar pattern but at budget-friendly price!
Eddie Borgo Silver-Plated Turquoise Spike Earrings ($315)
The Glam Globalist is constantly on the lookout for interesting, sculptural jewelry, so these Eddie Borgo spike earrings are an ideal pick for this giftee. Thanks to the yellow and turquoise marbled design and sleek shape, they manage to be edgy, artsy, and modern all at the same time. If you can't spend quite so much, we'd like to direct you to Guess' Pretty in Punk Spike Earrings ($28), which are a bit more glamorous, but equally cool.-Jessica Baker
