2016 Christmas Wish List – Part 1

Today I put up my Christmas tree.  This may be the earliest I’ve put it up but, it has been crappy weather outside, I’m home, and after doing some crazy Black Friday weekend shopping yesterday in the City with the girls (followed by an evening of spicy wine and girl chats) I was kind of in the mood.

So, the tree is up, the presents are underneath (although not yet wrapped), and I did some more shopping this afternoon.

I also got a massive splinter underneath my fingernail in the midst of all this, which is still dug in there and doesn’t seem like it’s planning to vacate itself anytime soon.

But, since I’m at the computer already and basically in the Christmas mood, here is the very first of my Christmas Wish List posts for 2016.

BIB NECKLACE

I love bib necklaces.  They are the perfect way to make a statement and dress up any outfit.

I have a few “sorta” bib necklaces, but when I visited Amazon recently I was overwhelmed and jealous of all the gorgeous necklaces that popped up.  I want one…or two….or a half dozen.

bib-necklace-1

I mean, isn’t it *JUST*

bib-2

Just enough

bib-3

This is one of my favorites – and currently in my cart on Amazon.ca

bib-4

I love every variation

bib-5

And of course the list wouldn’t be complete without an orange one (I have a yellow one in my cart)

 

Listen, if anyone out there in WordPress Land wants to indulge me and buy me a bib necklace like these – or any variation – I happily accept.

Christmas Wish List #s 2, 3, 4, and 5

Ack!  If you know me you know that I love dresses.  Love them.  Live in them throughout spring, summer, and half of fall.  Basically, I live in dresses until the weather is too cold to go bare-legged and wear open toe shoes.

So it’s very fitting that the next four items on my wish list are dresses.  Not just dresses but gorgeous dresses that I must have in my wardrobe.

#1  This turquoise dress is what dreams are made of  *sigh* Turquoise dress

#2 This cream dress is a fairy tale

Cream dress

#3  Every girl needs a little black dress (or 10) and this LBD is so bewitching

Black Dress

#4  My favorite color is yellow and this dress, although not as elegant as the others, is adorbs.  And I could totally wear it to work.

Yellow Dream Dress

Christmas Wish List – #1

Last year I posted several time on items on my Christmas wish list and luckily someone was paying attention because a few of my gifts were directly from the list (my sister-in-law ROCKS!).  So, I thought, for fun, I’d continue the list for 2013.

#1 This Sweater

Robin Intarsia Knit Jumper by Poem

Robin Intarsia Knit Jumper by Poem

I.Love.This.Sweater.  But I’m cheap and it’s about a hundred bucks before shipping and taxes so I highly doubt I’ll expect it – unless Santa wants to drop it down the chimney.  But there’s something so eye catching about those robins.

Here Kitty Kitty…..

I WANT THIS:

H&M tank

H&M tank

I know Christmas is over and I can’t add to my Holiday Wish List but I can’t stop looking at this tank.  I think it’s too cute.   Who said Animal Prints were out??

Cheers!


Holiday Wish List (part 8)

Pineapple Print Dress

Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good dress.  As soon as spring hits and all the damn snow has melted I live in dresses until the end of fall (or until it gets too cold to go bare-legged).

A few years ago I spotted a pineapple print dress in a magazine and have been on the lookout for one since.  Sadly, I haven’t found any.  But my eyes are still open.  Maybe Santa will be kind and bring me one.  Here are a few of my favorites:

This is my favorite!

This is my favorite!

 

But this is more my style.

But this is more my shape/style.

As is this.

As is this.

 

But this one I completely adore...I love the punchy yellow (my favorite color!!).

Aren’t these all adorable?  I can’t wait to find one I like so that I can wear it and feel like summer again.

Cheers!


Holiday Wish List (part 4)

GLITZY BOOTIES

Glitter booties

How magnificent are these glitzy, sparkly booties?  I think everyone needs a little bling for their feet.  I would totally rock these.  Unfortunately, I don’t know who makes them….so I may have to do a little glitter painting to my regular booties.

Cha-ching.

Cheers!


Holiday Wish List (part 3)

A Bedazzled Collar

My friend over at Fashion For Lunch (http://fashionforlunch.wordpress.com/) introduced me to this gorgeous Gemma Lister collar.  I absolutely love it!  And have been admiring it for quite some time.

A few weeks ago I picked up a collar at H&M.  It’s pretty but not quite the same…..

….However, I feel that both myself and FFF are very festive.  🙂
