All I want for Christmas…

…is the new Longchamp x Jeremy Scott bag at Colette. OMG, so awesome. I’ve missed out on all the previous collaborations between Longchamp and Jeremy Scott (due to me not pooping gold bars) and I will be so bummed if this one slips between my fingers as well. Will someone please poop me out a gold bar??

…is Burberry’s Snap Front Classic Quilted Jacket. One of my BFF’s Celeste (the founder of the Missoni headband I posted about (and now own, BTW)) has this jacket in navy blue and the first time I saw her wearing it, I was shocked that such a classic piece could look appropriate on such a pretty young lady (i.e. Celeste looked chic, not frumpy). I want, ahem, rather…NEED it in red.

…is this totally fabulous but really understated Givenchy bag. Allow me to expand… The shape of the Nightingale bag is brilliant; do you notice how it is wider at the top than at the bottom and the zipper extends allllll the way to the corners? I’d imagine this was done on purpose, so that you are able to open that baby up wide and see all the goodies you have stashed inside. There is nothing I hate more than using a purse that I can’t see all the way inside of because it doesn’t open wide enough. The other thing I love about the Nightingale bag is the simple geometric design that breaks up the size of the bag but doesn’t clutter the overall aesthetic. The handles are another plus: tejus lizard is the material, short is the length, and chic is the combination!¬†And this work of art comes equipped with a removable shoulder strap. Form and function!

…is Lanvin’s Ribbon Pom Pom Pump. These don’t need much explanation. Are they not the perfect party shoe? Hmmm?? In addition to being the perfect party shoe, they are the perfect date-night shoe, sassy work outfit shoe, girls night out shoe…blah blah blah. Wear them everywhere, is what I’m trying to say. But practice walking in them before leaving the house. These babies are tall.

…is…A GOLD BAR!¬†Enter Stage Right: Vintage Chanel Gold Bar Clutch. There really has never been a more perfect gift for the editor-in-chief, fashion editor, style director, photo editor, and art director of a blog pertaining to pooping gold bars. Has there??

Unfortunately, this Chanel clutch rings up at a whopping $4,180, so I think I have a better of chance of pinching off a gold nugget than I do of ever owning it.


Don’t be blue, wear Aqua!

That was… a terribly cheesy title.

Aqua is a mid-range, contemporary clothing line with a big presence at Bloomingdale’s (at least the San Francisco store). It is generally very reasonable, save for a handful of items that get up into the two-hundreds. To be fair, those pricier items are jackets, cashmere, heavily sequined items, or things of the like that you would spend more money on anyways. Aaaaand the pieces are cute! Nothing you’ll be passing down to your daughter someday, but definitely good for a couple seasons (or a few years if you have trouble throwing things away, like me). Here are (a lot of) my favorite items, and remember: Bloomie’s friends and family sale is going on right now!
