DRESS CODE: THE NO-REGIFTING GUIDE 2018

Posted on December 06 2018

Recess Los Angeles Vintage Designer Consignment Marie Monsod No Regifting Guide 2018

Last year's guide was such a success that Recess' very own Marie Monsod is back again to share her fave five unique gifts that ensure re-gifting isn't an option. You can always spot a Recess girl from her amazing accessories, and might even want to pick up a few for yourself. (Go on, we won't tell!)

 

RECESS Los Angeles Vintage Dress Code Marie Monsod No Regifting Guide Holiday Earrings

It wouldn't be a Recess gift guide without a collection of statement earrings. Whether she's a gold girl or a silver stunna, we've got you covered. Silver, bronze, gold, and crystal shoulder dusters make a look, from tee shirts and jeans to formal wear. Pick up a pair of these Recess signature statements and watch the compliments roll in. Whether they're signed, unsigned, vintage, designer, or obscure, you can't go wrong with any one of these earpieces. A busy woman, Marie never goes out without a stunning pair- and with a quick red lip, she's ready for anything the night brings.

 

RECESS Los Angeles Vintage Dress Code Marie Monsod No Regifting Guide Holiday Evening Bags Pouches

Give a girl the right bag, and she can go anywhere. Impromptu cocktails with the girls? Just swap out that work bag for one of these blinged-out babes and slip on a pair of heels- that tee and denim jacket now looks fresh. Caught off-guard for that formal event? Pull out a trusty LBD and add a crystal clutch for an instant upgrade. Marie's favorite way to wear the clutch is to add a jeweled little number in a fun color to her studded leather jacket for an effortless cool-girl look.

 

RECESS Los Angeles Vintage Dress Code Marie Monsod No Regifting Guide Holiday Big Brooches Pins

Big brooches are back! We love a great pin, they add a pop of personality to any look. Pick a pin (or a handful) and fasten to a well-worn denim jacket for extra laid-back cool. Tell everyone about your LA love with a colorful Hollywood pin, or make a sophisticated statement with a large Lacroix right at the top of the collar of a sharp button-down shirt. Show off those loose screws with a Versace set, or pin one onto a beret to keep the look anything but basic.

 

RECESS Los Angeles Vintage Dress Code Marie Monsod No Regifting Guide Holiday Big Bright Bags Colorful Carryalls

Our favorite color at Recess is rainbow. Add in all of the hallmarks of a great bag, and we're in. Printed, woven, or a suede, these bags currently have our hearts and elevate just about any look. A bag that can fit everything and look great is a bonus- and one that adds a pop of personality? Even better. Why be boring when you can express yourself? Tie a coordinating scarf on to one of these bags and rock the look in true Marie style.

 

RECESS Los Angeles Vintage Dress Code Marie Monsod No Regifting Guide Holiday Belt Bling Locked and Logod

A pant without a belt is an unfinished sentence. Finish that thought by belting one of these on and make a strong statement. Gold chains and charms are jewelry for the waist, large buckles cinch, and logos add panache. Hook one around a silky dress, over a blazer, threaded through belt loops, or even around the neck; the styling options are limitless. Take if from a pro: Marie's go-to look is a silk blouse tucked into a flattering jean, all pulled together with a statement belt.
