It’s hard trying to find the perfect gift for your mother, sister and best friend. Let alone women you don’t know as well like teachers and co-workers. What makes it easier is that all these women probably have their own “look” that they have developed over time. They went through the grunge, punk and alternative looks and came out the other side with a style all their own. When you see a piece of jewelry or an outfit in a store you probably say to yourself, “I can see my friend in that outfit” or “she wouldn’t be caught dead in that dress”. So, when it comes to getting her a present, you are confident you know her style well enough that the chances of finding something that she will like are pretty high.
Teenage girls are different. They are most likely exploring different styles. They haven’t quite settled on a the Boho, Preppy or Urban look. If they haven’t found their own style, then teens are at the mercy of whatever is trendy and popular. So herein lies the problem. You are trying to find a gift for someone who’s A. Own style is evolving and B. Is looking to find fashion forward clothes and jewelry that their friends and celebrity “it” girls are wearing. It is like trying to hit a moving target!
Here are Ten Do’s and Dont’s to help with the difficult task of buying a present for a teen girl:
Not all Teen Girls are going to like the same gift. What teens consider cool and stylish changes quickly. Therefore, think outside the box to find a present they will really love. Get to know who they are and what they like to do, talk to their friends and stick to jewelry and fashion that will stand the test of time. Use the gift as an opportunity to make them feel good about themselves. As long as you keep the ten tips in mind while you shop, you can’t go wrong!
Kate Hudson looking gorgeous, as always, wearing her ShameOnJane Small Name Necklace. Her kids are always close to her heart, even when working far from home. Bing and Ryder in Sterling Silver topped off her sporty, sexy outfit at the FL2 event in NYC.
As promised…here he is, Joel Kinnaman. It is embarrassing how big my smile is!
Some more pics from the Red Carpet and After Party…
Common was amazing in Run All Night. As if that wasn’t enough, Pablo Schreiber, Uzo Aduba and Natasha Lyonne showed up. Fun night had by all.
I have not posted any recent photos of me or my kids with celebrities. ShameOnJane has kept me a bit busy this year. But, on March 9th, I will be at the NYC premiere of “Run All Night” starring Liam Neesen, Ed Harris and Joel Kinnaman. I am especially excited to meet Joel Kinnaman since I became obsessed with the show “The Killing” on Netflix. At the last premiere I attended in NYC, “Winter’s Tale”, I took a selfie with Colin Farrell. Pictures a little dark, but trust me, he is so cute! I’ll let you know who I meet this time….stay tuned.
p.s. ShameOnJane at Bloomingdales 59th street this week!
As I have said before, I will do anything for Jane. I went to the Hamptons, multiple cocktail parties, dinners and lunches with fabulous important people and flew to Los Angeles. If that is not sacrifice, I don’t know what is! My Stepfather is a Movie Producer. For me, this is comparable to a kid who lives above a candy store. His job in the movie business has allowed me to live out my fantasy of becoming a movie star. I play dress up with the costume designers, have my hair and makeup done and I’ve been an extra in movies such as “Hitch” and “Cop Out”. Not to mention, hanging out with Ryan Gossling. My kids work on various movie sets, talking on the walkie talkies, sitting in the director’s chair and watching the video monitor as if they know what they are doing. My son was even playfully mauled on the red carpet by Russell Brand which ended up all over the newspapers and magazines (continue reading at the bottom
Below are more photos of me and my family celebrity-hopping in Hollywood.

During the filming of the remake of “Arthur” I even auditioned and got a small role as a reporter. Not that I ever wanted to be an actual actress, but I wanted to have the experience of “acting” in a movie. But wait, it gets even better, I even had a trailer and a stand in. Stand in: the actress that had to stand in position while the director blocked out scenes, because I was really too important to do that. Under the pretense of having a ton of meetings for SOJ (I had a few), I left my husband and kids and flew from NYC to California to hob nob with the Celebs. I went to the set and met Emma Stone and Ryan Gossling, my new bffs. We hung out and I gave Emma a set of RemindeRings that said “Flirt with Costars”, “Turn to your Best Side”, ”Smile for the camera”, “Suck in Stomach” and “Push Latest Project”. If anyone spots her wearing them, please write in! Emma loved the RemindeRings and so did Ryan’s assistant. I also met David Spade, Sean Penn, Troy Garity and Holt McCallany. I can’t wait to see where Jane takes me next.
