Designer Spotlight: Timmy Woods Beverly Hills

If you're looking for one-of-a-kind, innovative accessories, don't miss the Timmy Woods Beverly Hills line of wooden handbags. The bags, launched in 1992 by artist Timmy Woods, are considered to be fashion-forward, wearable versions of art.

Each handbag is hand-carved from fallen Acacia trees and comes with a certificate of authenticity and originality. Woods' designs include items from nature, pop culture, sports, hobbies and holidays. Several may remember the Eiffel Tower handbag held by Carrie Bradshaw in one of the first scenes of "Sex and the City: The Movie" - the bag was from the Timmy Woods Beverly Hills line.

In case you're still on the prowl for the perfect holiday handbag, Timmy Woods offers several holiday-inspired pieces.

Try this wooden Santa Claus bag, which comes with Santa's necessary pair of spectacles!

Also available is a drumming toy soldier, nutcracker and red truck, which is filled with wrapped gifts and decorated with a holiday wreath.

Holiday Icing

If you're looking for the perfect clutch or jewelry for that big holiday celebration or as a gift, look no further. Taking a cue from this season's hottest trends (ruffles, velvet, purple and gold), these accessories are bold enough for your favorite staple dress or to accentuate your latest fashion indulgence.

These two necklaces are from local Memphis designer, Olga King. King, as we've mentioned before, handcrafts all of her jewelry, making each piece as unique as they are lovely.

If you'd like to add a pop of color, try King's red freshwater pearl necklace. Incorporate a touch of whimsy with the gold star earrings, featuring pearl and rhinestone accents. Finish your look with a red and gold bracelet.

Shiraleah offers a wide assortment of clutches, including a velvet ruffle clutch in black or eggplant.

Shiraleah's Molly bag is an envelope-style clutch, available in black or red patent.

Don't forget Shiraleah's bold velvet clutch in eggplant, featuring a prominent clasp.

See you at the party!

Deck the Halls with Lots of Boots!

We love our heels - frankly, who doesn't? But with the threat of inclement, wintry weather upon us, we're taking a much-needed respite from stilettos and trying this season's flat boot trend.

Perfect with tights or skinny jeans, flat boots are stylish, yet comfortable for facing those holiday crowds.

Over-the-knee boots are a definite must-have this season. The Matisse Bentley boot in black micro-suede features great stud detailing.

The Matisse Benjamin boot is anything but boring with buttons from top to bottom.

If you're looking for a basic boot, try the Coconuts by Matisse Virginia boot in a rich brown. The detailing at the top is similar to that of a cowboy boot, with a gold stud on either side.

If you like the Virginia boot, don't miss these cowboy boots.

Put on Your Dancin' Shoes!

The holidays are finally here, and we bet your social schedule is just as hectic as ours. Whether you're attending a casual get-together with your closest pals or preparing for the annual office cocktail party, you want to look your best.

If you've already found the dress or are looking to your closet to provide inspiration (we all already own our share of LBDs, don't we?), don't forget the most important part of any outfit - shoes!

Pair Poetic Licence's Gift Wrapped heel in black and silver with your favorite cocktail dress.

Sam Edelman has the perfect shoe to add a bit of holiday cheer to any occasion. The Icelynn black flat or the Caper gold flat both feature a bejeweled toe and will allow you to stay on the dance floor all night long!

If you'd like to stick to seasonal red, try BCBGeneration's suede Kruz platform heel in Oxblood Red or the patent leather Ariel heel in Ruby Red.

Sam Edelman's Dominique flat in black or pewter is perfect for a casual get-together. Who can say no to a festive bow?

TrendWatch: Gray

A new trend is finding its rightful place on the runway. Gray is here to stay, and not merely as a neutral.

Try BCBGeneration's Million heel in Ash - this suede shoe is anything BUT neutral!

French Sole's Zeppa flat features hundreds of tiny metallic embellishments scattered over the shoe. It adds a bit of flair and is the perfect complement to your skinny jeans.

If you're anxious to try a few new trends this season, Sam Edelman's Maddie bootie is the perfect style combination. The bootie - available in Stone - is dinstictive, yet refined enough for a day at the office.

And, you can end your quest for the perfect handbag. Meet Shiraleah's oversized patent gray bag, featuring snakeskin handles. Need we say more?
