Dear Santa…(An edited Gift Ideas List, Just For Inspiration!)

Dear Santa,

I have been GOOD.

Also, I know how busy you get this time of the year, so let me simplify it all for you, with a little Christmas list of my own, just for inspiration!

It goes something like this :

I L O V E watches.

I recently stumbled upon Henry London watches on Instagram and instantly fell in love with the vintage vibe and the choice of colors.

Then I saw the very reasonable prices and that was it : I needed one 😉

I usually prefer large, men watches and the more dials, the better

+ teal is my favorite color, so it is no surprise that I particularly like this chic mesh one, in their Stratford color :

£150.

 

Staying in the jewelry, and in the affordable department, I also have my eyes on this Baublebar Queenbee pendant necklace from their collaboration with fashionista extraordinaire Olivia Palermo :

I think It would look amazeballs tucked under the collar of my new plaid shirt.

(Ok, it’s a pre-order but it is ok to wait a little if it means getting exactly what you want!).

$54.

 

Sticking to Palermo in hope some of her amazing style will rub on us, let’s just say her collection for Ciaté London also is a hit;

I particularly like the Fashion Edit Nail Set , which has stylish deep colors :

$30.

 

Jewels again, but of the more precious kind this time, my friend and owner of Rocks N Sugar Fanny does a great job at making me drool over her amazing creations, with a love at first sight type of envy for the Pink Collar ring, in 14k pink gold and diamonds.

From $1800.

 

Table books, I always seek.

I just heard Dita Von Teese has a new one out, Your Beauty Mark, and it is always a treat!

$27.

 

In the all time classics section of my list, you will always find a few timeless choices, such as the Hermes Constance H belt, that is now a collector since the brand decided to retire it (gold H buckle, black reversible belt, thank you)

+ it happens to be my initial.

Enough said.

With a good eye and a little patience, you can find some good ones at designer consignments stores or sites.

(I can help!).

 

A chanel purse, because…I mean…

Of course I would pick the iconic Classic Flap Bag in black quilted leather, with gold hardware please 🙂

It’s $5500 for a good size at Chanel‘s, but it is the kind of pieces you should definitely consider getting vintage for even more charm.

 

Also always in my mind, some red soled heels :

My favorite are the classic black Decoletté 554 in 100mm

$675.

I am also in need of the sharp nude pump though, so I guess the Iriza “Maya” #3 in 100mm would do, too

$675.

 

Still love me some Vuitton shawls, too.

I like the Butterfly Square, in navy :

Gold tones bar accessories to populate my upcoming bar cart, such as an ice bucket
