Hi Ladies:

With the holidays fast approaching, no doubt you will be racking your brains to find the last minute gifts for your loved ones. Believe it or not, I haven't made the slightest dent in my shopping list yet. (I know, I am so bad!) What can I say—I am already fixated on the post-Christmas sales. I propose that if you have any money left over once all the shopping dust has settled, treat yourself to an investment piece that will see you looking fabulous in 2010. Post-Christmas holiday sales are the perfect time to snatch that oh-so-perfect bag or pair of shoes at a discount price. And we all know how crucial the right accessories are to the full-figured fashionista's wardrobe—they spruce up even the most basic black-on-black ensembles into a look-at-me showstopper.

For a super chic all-purpose bag, try the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Huge Hiller Leather Hobo—the perfect carryall. It comes in a variety of colors, including basics like cream and black, in addition to a bright red one that will add a punch of color to any outfit. Another one of my favorite splurges is an amazing pair of shoes. (You know how big girls love shoes!) I found a pair of Prada Triple Strap Mary Janes that work with just about everything in my wardrobe. And because timing is of the essence, a watch is a multipurpose wonder. Michael Kors Rosegold Midsized Chronograph Watch will keep you on time and looking chic. Good luck with the last minute shopping; hope your holidays are grand!
