Perhaps it’s because I’ve been writing about it so the headlines about gender roles, women in the workplace, and the ongoing battle-of-the-sexes talks jump out at me more, but it seems like lately, for whatever reason, this topic has leaped to the top of social issues.

Putting all the debate aside though, and regardless of what side of the battle you’re on, I can’t imagine why anyone would willingly give up on, hide, suppress, or ignore one’s femininity. So, in honor of being a girl, and in the hopes of offering a few gift ideas for the ever-nearing Christmas Day (eeek! Yes, I still need to shop too), here’s a few of my favorite things about being, simply, a woman:


1. Petite cherie camera strap by Bloom theory |2. renewed nostalgia lace skirt

3. famous frocks pattern dress making book | 4. Ma petite knit shoes and english breakfast tea for one set

5. The little guide to vintage shopping by melody fortier and joan bow flats in nude

6. customized typewriter key cufflinks and Men’s tie chevron neckties | 7. By the creek ruffled scarf in mustard

Hopefully you get lots of your favorite things this Christmas, or, at least get some lovely lady (or a fine fella) in your life something that suits them. These are just a few of my favorite things from Shop Ruche  and Etsy’s men’s collections, check them out if you’re hitting a wall in the idea-room, they’ve got so many adorably-unique and vintage-inspired things for everyone you can imagine. Happy weekend everyone!
