There are only a few more hours left until December begins which means the holiday season is on. We only have a few short weeks to get everything done…so start shopping.  Rather than rushing to a packed mall with excessive line-ups and frantic shoppers, spend some time on The Peacock Parade and pick out awesome gifts for the incredible women on your list. Stylish gifts for way less than retail and you don’t even have to leave home. How awesome is that?

The best part is we’re here to help! I will be diligently offering tips, advice and making holiday suggestions throughout December so you can get through the holidays with your sanity. If you have any Peacock-related questions about what to buy for someone or need some styling advice for yourself, feel free to tweet us @PeacockParade, @DianaCina, post on our Facebook page or comment below!

Without further adieu, here are some of my picks from the sales this week.

The coveted “Designer of the Year” award was given to Stella McCartney for her sartorial excellence, as well as “Designer Brand.” After years of proving she was more than just what’s-his-name’s daughter, McCartney was honoured to receive such an award. Of course, many of the attendees were decked out in McCartney’s clothing.
