I’ve been hunting for a simple, chic iPad case for months and these abitax felt sleeves from Roztayger certainly fit the bill! My husband and I share ours so I’m thinking the powder blue or green grey would keep both parties happy. Problem solved!

How Holly Golightly are these colorful Margaret Elizabeth tassel earrings? We’re in love! I’m specifically eyeing the lapis for a night at the ballet and the pool for New Year’s Eve. Best of all? Today everything on the site is 25% off using the code BEMERRY — happy Cyber Monday, girls!
We’ve been searching high and low and believe we’ve finally found the perfect gift for bibliophile friends and family… We’re absolutely smitten with Assouline’s luxury box set of Library Candles! Scented in their signature Book, Leather, Wood, and Culture Lounge, each smells absolutely divine. Also, while they’ll be available at Bergdorfs, Neiman Marcus, and worldwide Assouline boutiques soon, the candles are launching exclusively on Assouline’s Facebook page! So hop on over and happy shopping :)
This morning’s daily fancy isn’t one item, but three! They were all so charming and affordable I simply couldn’t choose. First up, this darling navy felt cloche – at only $17 I’d never take it off! Next, the chic plaid gloves for $20 (just call me Nancy Drew…), and last, but certainly not least, a smart gold finish watch for a mere $20 (nobody needs to know it’s not Kors…). Oh Target, how do I love thee? Let me know count the ways… ;)
We’ve been searching high and low for the perfect holiday cards and recently settled on a darling set from Minted. They have so many charming designs it was so hard to choose (we went for the Paris + Vintage Holiday Ribbon)! I especially loved that you can customize just about anything and they email you a digital proof so you can make sure it looks perfect! Best of all? Minted graciously offered all the Matchbook readers a special 15% off discount on all their holiday cards! Simply enter MATCHBOOK at checkout — it’s good through Sunday the 27th! Happy card writing, girls!
