For Laura Vassar Brock, one half of the duo behind über-chic womenswear label Brock Collection (also the latest winners of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award), style is second nature. The California-born designer also happens to be one of the best-dressed moms on the East Coast, often bedecked in the Marie-Antoinette-meets-prairie-girl clothes with which her label (designed with husband Kristopher Brock) has become synonymous. Think: chinoiserie-inspired printed bustiers, fitted off-the-shoulder dresses with built-in corsets (their fit is second to none), plenty of white poplin, and cult-loved jeans that imbue a luxurious ease.

Now in its third year, Brock Collection has become a favorite among cool girls and celebrities alike, from Alicia Vikander, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts to Lauren Santo Domingo and Vanessa Traina (who styles the runway shows each season). Here, read more on Vassar Brock’s laid-back Cali-girl style, and discover what she’ll be gifting this holiday season.

My extraordinary facialist at Dr. Lancer’s office in Beverly Hills taught me a great beauty trick: use one of these ampoules before applying makeup before a night out, you’ll be glowing. These are perfect for one of my closest friends, Hayley Bloomingdale.

These masks are perfect for travel. If you take them on a vacation, your skin will forget about the flight after you use them. My dear friend Alex Vickers often travels from London and Paris to New York, so she’s going to love them!

My husband loves Tom Ford candles almost as much as I do. There is a subtle masculine scent to this one, and it looks great in his bathroom.
