My Wish List

My Wish List

I'm going strong on the gift theme these last few weeks. Last week I shared how to give a gift they won't return. This week I wanted to name a few of my fave gift picks for the season that'll hopefully help you do your own shopping!

Planning Ahead

Even though I have a smartphone, I'm still an old-fashioned girl at heart. I'm looking for a 2012 planner that is cool but still compact enough to not require a tote to carry it! I love MyAgenda's planners, like this one with a chic gray metallic cover. Sold locally at The Paper Deli; also featured in our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide!)


Nail It

I'm a huge fan of statement-making nail polish. It's so fun to change up your look temporarily by painting on a bright, bold color, or perhaps some sparkles. Urban Outfitters has a stellar lineup of polishes that I spotted—including gift kits where you can purchase six colors for a slight discount. I spotted a shocking purple, a lovely lilac and an all-sparkle color that I have to run back to buy. A fashionable coworker also tuned me in to FACE Stockholm's polishes, which are sold at J. Crew and come in a pretty nude, sparkly gold and vivid plum (shown), among other colors. FACE Stockholm polish, $10 J. Crew stores or



Helping Hand

I'm kind of a wimp about cold weather, so having accessories to help me brave the temps is imperative. I'm loving the idea of faux-fur lined leather gloves for this winter. Not only does this pair from Wilson's look luxurious, I would feel spoiled with the faux-fur lining! Wilson's leather gloves, $34.99,





Boot Beat

Although I've gotten used to sporting heels as tall as 5" (really), said heels are not as, er, practical for the weekends when I'm running around (or on a workday where I'm doing a lot of walking in general!). Flat boots are my go-to for comfort, style and warmth in the winter and I'm coveting a pair of flat black boots (like these ones) to toughen up some of my ensembles. My flat brown boots get a lot of wear, so I'd love to add some variety with a different color. Lucky Brand "Aida" boots, $199,




MJ Mania

There may have been a time in my younger days when a group of friends and I dressed up as the Jackson Five for Halloween. Maybe. So this brand-new show that's playing in Las Vegas now (and starts touring at the end of December nationwide) is right up my alley! And I want to be one of the lucky ones that sees this spectacle!






Something Sparkly

For New Year's I'd love to don a sequined dress that rivals a disco ball. And since there are so many versions out there, from affordable to pricey, this is one trend that (unlike disco) I hope never dies! BCBG "Marta" 3/4 sleeve sequined dress (I love the jade color!), $398,
