If I had to pick one brand that perfectly suits my personal style, it would be A Ruby. If you aren't familiar, the company was started by Avra Myers, one of the co-founders of Club Monaco. A Ruby offers staple pieces in flattering, feminine cuts, all available in neutral colors. I basically only wear black and gray, adding bright jewels for a pop of color. I wear so much black that a friend constantly jokes, "I will reward you anytime I see you wearing an actual color."
If you are still looking for holiday gifts for family and friends, let me introduce you to some of my favorite pieces from the A Ruby collection. Let's start with the riding leggings. I love the detailing.
If you order these online, use the code PANTSSHIPFREE.
How cozy does this tunic sweater look? The v-neck cut looks great on everyone and you can dress it up or down with accessories or a vest.
I flipped when I discovered the luxe poncho. This is the ultimate layering piece. Put it over your favorite long sleeve shirt once it's too cold to wear that on its own.
Winter clothes can feel bulky, but the cotton fleece moto jacket is nothing but chic. It comes in both winter white and charcoal gray and right now it's $45 dollars off. #Bonus
For a coat that's slightly longer (sometimes you just need to cover your butt, you know?) try the double wrap coat.
I really love it with the belt. My whole wardrobe is full of things that cinch at the waist.
In addition to apparel, this holiday season A Ruby is also offering a few special accessories. In honor of her poodle, Rocky, this year you can purchase a poodle charm bracelet!
Over the past year, A Ruby has popped in various locations - the Prudential Center, Legacy Place - but now the brand has a permanent home at the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham, MA. You can find it right in between Whole Foods and Lululemon.
Now, to decide which color of the moto jacket to order . . .
