Second City Style’s 12 Days Of Christmas (Shopping). Day 5: Editor-in-Chief Lauren Dimet Waters’ Picks. Second City Style Fashion Blog

November 30, 2007 • Shopping


So many gifts and so little time! I have been tossing photos into a folder for weeks now and when it came time to narrow my picks…I just couldn’t! The theme to these items are gifts I would treasure and wear/use to death! Maybe they cost a little more, but hey…I’m worth it. Aren’t you? I hope my husband sees this for some gift inspiration, hint, hint.


What Comes Around Goes Around Celeste Dress $698 Shopbop
I need a new dress for the myriad of parties I plan to attend, if not in my mind. The perfect little frock for New Years and for the flapper in us all.


Christian Louboutin Lady Gres 37942 Pumps $865 Saks Fifth Avenue
Hello lover! If I were not afraid I would break my neck in these bad boys I would wear them everywhere! Even the shower.


Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Quilted Croco Bag $1,395 Yves Saint Laurent
I have been *hearting* this bag since I first laid eyes on it many moons ago. It has all the necessary elements…patent, check…croco print, check. Oh and it tucks nicely under my your arm. I must have it.

Jules 11-Strand Bracelet $160 Second City Store
For some reason, I have a need for more yellow gold in my life. This bracelet is bold, yet elegant. Perfect for the office or a night on the town. The price is right too. Especially with a 20% discount! (Use the code ‘Holiday07’ at checkout)


Vanessa Bruno Hooded Cape-Coat $886 Net-a-Porter
You don’t see it? This cape-coat has my name written all over it. In fact, I can already think of 100 ways to wear it.


Cartier Roadster Steel Automatic Mens Watch $4,340 Jomashop
Yes, I would like the man’s watch. The bigger the better when it comes to Cartier watches if you ask me. Keeping it real.

Alessandro Dell’Acqua Suede Bondage Stiletto with Mosaic Glass Heel $670 Shopbop
These shoes are hot, hot, hot. Enough said.

Melanie Nicole Marauder Dress $175 Second City Store
Besides the price, the best part about this dress is that you can also wear it as a top. I’ve tried it on, it rocks. It also comes in other colors, so I can buy a few while I’m at it.

Kindle: Wireless Reading Device $399 Amazon
OK so it looks like a calculator relic from the 70’s, but this iPod (of sorts) for books is rather ingenious. The
electronic-paper display provides a sharp, high-resolution screen that looks and reads like real paper. There are currently 90,000 books available, including 100 of 112 current New York Times® Best Sellers. It weighs only 10.3 ounces and holds over 200 titles.Too bad they are selling out like crazy!

Tory Burch Uma Boots $495 Tory Burch
I was hoping I was over the whole Tory Burch shoe thing, but something about these boots speak to me. Could it be the gold hardware? Now that I live in NYC I am obsessed with flats (wonder why?).
