Making My List...

It's that time again. Time to brace ourselves for what we hope will be an opportunity to check things off our "gotta have" list. As you might have determined, I have an actual list and prefer to focus on the acquisition of specific items. Occasionally something else will catch my eye, but for the most part I limit my attention to the items on my "wanted" list. 

Perhaps it's the perfect black leather jacket or the ideal nude platform pumps. Regardless, this girl has her list, my laptop and my cappuccino ready to go Friday morning while I shop barefoot in my jammies. Doesn't get better than that, does it?

The real key to my strategy, however, is to keep my finger on the pulse of pricing of the items long before the holidays appear. It's important to not get so swept up in "the deal" that you don't leave with your prize. Of course my goal is to acquire pieces I'll cherish for years to come, not stuff my closet to the gills. I'm focused on style not trends. Given the choice between quality and quantity, I'll choose the former every single time. And frankly, I'm not ashamed to tell you (or my husband) that the best gifts are always the ones I buy for myself. So why settle for anything less than exactly what I want?

So have a look, lovely friends. Here are some of the items I'm asking "Santa" for this holiday season..

Christian Louboutin Nude Pumps // Christian Louboutin Black Pumps // Prada Saffiano Satchel // Chanel No5 Sensual Elixir // La Perla Belted Suit // Balenciaga Florabotanica // Tory Burch Leopard Revas // Michael Kors Booties // Eddie Borgo Chain Link Bracelet // Marni Satin Necklace // Alexander McQueen Bracelet // Lulu Frost Earrings // Louboutin Book // Karl Lagerfeld Jewel-Encrusted Gloves // The Big Book of Chic // Giambattista Valli // The Allure of Beauty // Milly Ostrich Skirt // Milly Black & White Zip-up Jacket // Zip Up Booties // Altuzarra Leather Jacket

What the beautiful people are saying...

Something to say, gorgeous?
