If you think the holidays are fun and festive, then you’ve got to check out Hallie Wilson’s blog, corals + cognacs. Full of color, texture, and sparkle, Hallie’s super-chic, yet playful ensembles are like little celebrations unto themselves. We asked Hallie to pick out some of her favorite ModCloth pieces for our 2014 Gift Guide, and this style-savvy Manhattanite did not disappoint. Peruse the collection Hallie inspired, and learn what holiday fun she’s most looking forward to in our Q&A!
We love the fashionable assortment you’ve picked for your curated collection. What kind of gal did you have in mind when choosing the looks?
Much like me, she’s a girl on the go! Her look is all about fashion that’s functional.
You’re a happenin’ Manhattanite — what’s your favorite thing about the holidays in the big city?
New York City is the perfect backdrop for holiday happenings. The ice rink in Bryant Park, the larger-than-life tree at Rockefeller Center — this city sparkles throughout the holiday season. Quite literally.
How do give your wardrobe an extra pop of festive flair?
A bold red lip. Feminine, festive, and oh-so-chic!
What’s at the top of your holiday to-do list?
Going home, actually. I was traveling in Asia over the holidays last season, and I’m eager to spend this year with my family (and, okay — to veg out and raid my parents’ wine vault).
Out of all the items you picked for your collection, which is your absolute fave? Why did you choose it, and who would you gift it to?
Tough one, but I’d have to pick the There’s a Map for That Necklace. This simple piece makes a big statement. And it has added sentimental value — I love to travel, and this is the perfect gift to give friends that I’ve been on trips with.
