There’s no doubt that Christmas is a celebratory time of year, but your time is usually (and your money) consumed with buying other people gifts, so that hot dress you wanted or that stylish jacket you must have, needs to be put on the back burner!
So I’ve combined a list of ‘ the twelve things I wish I was getting for Christmas’. Cross my fingers I’ll get just one…… maybe my other half or Santa will be good this year! Here’s hoping!!
SCANLAN & THEODORE
Scuba Pleat Skirt – Flesh ($600)
When I saw this, needless to say I had an ooohhhh….. moment. Beautifully made and thick and luxurious and the colour is so my style right now. Even girl needs a high waisted pleated skirt.
Race Black Leather Shoes ($189.95)
These are simple, elegant, yet very comfortable (not your sky high heel). A pair of heels that can go with absolutely any outfit, where could you go wrong?
Daphne Knot Pencil Skirt – Spring Green ($899)
Yes… I know it’s nearly $900 just for a skirt but this one nearly knocked me over when I saw it, stunning and original and the epitome of style. It also comes in pants, a top and a dress with the bow type style, all stylish to the max, but the skirt was definitely the winner for me.
Drew Ponte Tee Dress – White ($199)
White, crisp, comfortable and stylish, what’s not to like? This is essential for every wardrobe! A great spring/summer item, I can’t believe I don’t have one already.
Agatha Culotte – Cement, Ink ($180)
I have been searching for the right pair of culottes for a while. Well there’s been a few styles I have wanted, but they have sold out very quickly. I think these will be my next purchase. Easy to wear, comfortable, in season/on trend and pair nicely with a white or grey tee or a top with a bit more embellishment when you need to go out.
MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA
Beige Nude Bodysuit ($265)
A plain, stylish bodysuit is something I wish I had for a number of reasons. Great for when you wear high waisted pants or skirts and for this style it comes in other colours like black and white which will go with anything.
Barrel Bag – Medium, Black (695)
The perfect black bag is like the perfect black dress, you always need one and most of the time they never go out of style. This Oroton bag is just simple, but stunningly classic and will match any outfit, I’m sure I’d get plenty of bag wear out of this one.
The Powder Ruff One Shoulder Dress – Grey, White ($350)
I have really come to love the By Johnny brand, the materials are really nice and stretchy, and cling nicely to a woman’s body (and even one with curves like myself). I have always had a thing for one shoulder dresses so this was a bit of a stand out, and always a favourite of mine a peplum (I even had one of my wedding dress).
Silky Viscose Jumpsuit – Black ($279)
I wanted this to wear Christmas day….. stylish, cool and comfortable (especially for when you put yourself in a food coma). You could mix and match with different pairs of shoes to makes it more of a casual outfit or whack on some killer heels and glam accessories and you have a night out with the ladies. Love its versatility.
Little Bag – Pale Pink ($820)
Little pricey for what I would usually pay for a small bag but a bit of a luxury item. Although I’m not usually a pink fan, it swings more towards nude colour and hence why I love it. Always need a classy little bag for a night out on the town.
Crepe Wide Leg Panelled Pant – Black ($229)
As you have probably already guessed, I love a good high wasited anything and Cue is one of my favourite and trusted brands (that’s not too expensive)! I should have them by now, I actually only have some cream crepe pants that I adore, so it’s only right that I invest in some of these beauties…. why haven’t I already????
Raglan Sleeve Tee – White ($395)
These type and cut of tee shirts are always worth buying in a few different colours. They look great, match well with high waisted anything and can be worn in both a casual or more dressed up setting. Gotta have one of these, I already have a couple but in black, in different brands… I need more!
No 5 Paris – Eau Premiere
Yes, I know it was only supposed to be 12 but this one you just can’t go past. I ran out of my Chanel about a month ago and was trying to wait until Christmas to see these appear in my stocking. We’ll have to wait and see…. one hopes!
Nothing more elegant and beautiful than this perfume and I always love to have it on my dressing table.
So these are my top 12….. well 13 picks for the festive season! I think it’s better that I am restricted to a set amount because let’s be honest I could go on forever, there’s always something a girl wants and ain’t that the truth!!!
WHAT’S YOUR TOP PICKS FOR THIS CHRISTMAS?????
