Holiday Must-Haves: Alexis Swanson Traina

Alexis Swanson Traina is the Creative Director of Swanson Vineyards, a boutique winery in the Napa Valley that we are completely smitten with. Alexis, along with her talented and creative sisters, fashion photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank, and fashion designer Veronica Swanson Beard, are a serious set of taste makers. Alexis has always had an eccentric and chic style—which appeals to the individuals in all of us—and she shared her personal tastes with us, all with a holiday twist!


SONG: I’m obsessed with the Andrew sisters during the holidays!

COOKIE: Spice or Gingerbread cookies are my favorites.

DRINK: Sweet wine/ports in colored cut-crystal cordials by the fire. (image)

PARTY DRESS: A piece from Erdem in a fun technicolor can’t be beat.

PARTY SHOES: Red plaid makes the perfect statement!

FAVORITE GIFT TO GIVE: Holiday care packages in carefully curated themes.

LIPSTICK COLOR: I like just a light tint of color.

HOSTESS TRICK: Hire an old fashion accordion player!

DECOR: Bavarian wooden pyramids, smokers, nutcrackers and lots of flickering candle light.

WAY TO SPARKLE: With a little sparkly nail polish, I love all the chunky top coats from OPI. (image)
