In celebration of a $250 Giveaway (read more below), I asked one of the coolest LA-based stylists I know to take over as Guest Editor. Lauren Messiah shares her must-have picks from the new A Mom in Red High Heels StyleOwner store:

Montana Studded iPhone Case, available in a variety of colors

Montana Studded iPhone Case: I saw this case at one of my favorite boutiques in Los Angeles, Church. I went into the store week after week just to look at it and finally I took the plunge and got it. Since then it has been compliment after compliment and it protects my phone like no other case can!

Silver Double Bone Ring by Low Luv x Erin Wasson

Double Bone Ring: I love this ring! I purchased it to show a client, sadly my client never saw it because the ring found its way to my finger first. It’s a statement ring without being over the top. Perfect enhancement to a casual daytime look.

Strap Solutions fashion forms

Strap Solutions: This this do-dad is always in my stylist tool kit. Turns a regular bra into a racerback in a snap.

Low-Rise Lace Thong hanky panky

Hanky Panky Thong: There is no better thong out there. I’ve tried them all and I always fall back to Hanky Panky. They are comfortable and don’t get all messed up in the wash.

Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss by Clinique

Clinique Lip Balm: It was actually Stacy London who turned me on to this. She raved about the Black Ice shade so I had to try it. It’s universally flattering and the balm isn’t too sticky. It’s perfect.
