The holidays are a time of traveling to and from the homes of friends and family. Perhaps you are the one traveling, but if you are the hostess with the mostess, we have some tips from Martha Stewart that will make your guests feel like they are staying in a bed and breakfast.
Give your spare bedroom that hotel feel. Set out guest essentials, such as towels and an alarm clock. Go that extra mile and add items such as bottles of water, chocolates and even a nice floral arrangement.
Set up guest towels in the bathroom in a special place, perhaps wrapped in a nice bow. This attention to detail will make your loved ones feel extra special. Also, stock up on anything your guest might need, such as toilet paper, q-tips, cotton balls or paper towels. By stocking up on these items you save your guest a potentially embarrassing request.
One of the biggest complaints we hear from holiday travelers is that there is never enough space for them to put away their clothing. Nobody likes to live out of a suitcase, so if your guest is staying in your child's room (for example) make sure there is adequate space to put their belongings in, whether it be a drawer or some closet space. This gesture makes friends and family feel 100 times more comfortable.

You saw that right...We have a dress that has been said to be one of the most successful pieces in the S/S 07 Gucci collection since Tom Ford stepped down from the creative director position a few years ago. New creative mind Frida Giannini has brought the sensuality back to this historic house.
Now, don't you want to own a little piece of history?

This dress was seen just this February at the S/S 07 Marc Jacobs Runway Show.
Such a timeless piece...Gorgeous billowing silk was his strength for this collection.
Don't believe me, come on over to the shop to see this work of art in person!

We get alot of exciting pieces daily here at New To You however, I'm partial to this black strapless lace Betsy Johnson dress. Music is my greatest inspiration when it comes to fashion. This dress is elegant enough to wear out or to a concert (if you want to be daring).
"She may be the 14th most powerful celebrity in the world (according to Forbes), but Angelina Jolie's latest red carpet dress cost her just $26."
"The silk-velvet dress was worn for the premiere of A Mighty Heart in New York. Jolie purchased the dress at a Los Angeles vintage boutique." ~www.damnimcute.com
