It's the last month of the decade and we are ready to go out with a bang! The countdown to the NEW Roaring 20’s has begun and we’re sharing our must-haves for a modern take on ringing in 2020 and beyond.
1 | Step back in time and be transported to a bygone era during “The Party,” an immersive experience aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Hosted by Belmond, in partnership with Private Drama Events, no two guest experiences will be alike aboard the train; dine with Art Deco darlings, toast with bootleggers, and see the iconic locomotive brought to life through this once-in-a-lifetime theatrical journey. With an itinerary that begins in Venice and ends in London, this is undoubtedly the perfect bucket list gift for the adventure-seeker who has everything.
2 | The illustrious allure of girls with pearls has been admired for centuries and no Roaring 20’s ensemble would be complete without a plethora of pearls. As we head into 2020, a dazzling number of modern pearl accessories are set to anoint the next generation’s muse. Keren Wolf’s multi-strand pearl headbands have graced the runways of NYFW and are the new statement headpiece for a flapper with finesse. Target’s capsule collection, A New Day, created the ultimate evening handbag for dancing from dusk ‘til dawn. Cassandra Collection’s intricate pearl cuff reflects a luxurious juxtaposition of power and femininity, ideal for today’s contemporary gal and emblematic of the designer herself.
3 | To an entertaining pro, the notion of a self-serve bar has previously seemed rather inhospitable, until now- Neiman Marcus is giving your libations menu the 21st century makeover thanks to Moet & Chandon’s bespoke champagne vending machine. Earning a spot on this year’s exclusive fantasy gift list is a personal bubbly dispensary stocked with 360 splits of Moet & Chandon. Host an epic bash with ease, knowing that at the push of a button, your digital bartender will be making spirits bright well into the new year.
4 | After a night of New Year’s Eve revelry, we imagine you, and your tootsies, will be glad to slip into something more comfortable. Feather your flapper nest with these playful Olivia von Halle silk pajamas and bedroom slippers from Ann Taylor. Velvet, silk, and marabou feathers are a tried-and-true recipe for twenties chic; you may be headed to bed as the sun rises, but you’re sure to awaken looking fabulous for the first day of the new year. As an added bonus, this combo does double-duty as a posh packable for your overnight on the express.
5 | There’s no shortage of good times to be had in December and browsing the imaginative holiday window displays on 5th Avenue is always a highlight of the season. Bergdorf Goodman’s beloved window displays are a fixture of this tradition; on display this year is “Bergdorf GoodTimes,” where coveted items from everyone’s wish list are matched with celebratory scenes that “evoke the time-honored spirit of a holiday fête.” Their depiction of an Art Deco party is the ideal inspiration for the upcoming countdown and leaves us ready to exclaim "laissez le bon temps rouler" at midnight!
