I’m a firm believer in the fact that holiday gifts should not be too practical.
Indeed, often the very purpose of a gift is to give someone something that they
would never purchase for themselves – whether it is something too extravagant,
time-consuming, or just something that they would never think of on their own.
Therefore, my wish list is composed of fabulous, splurge-worthy items. Hey, a
girl can dream, right?
Black Max Studio Stiletto boots
girl needs a pair of killer boots, and these are definitely made for walking.
Featuring a four inch heel and trimmed with elegant covered buttons, they could
go from day to night with ease and they are classic enough to remain stylish for
seasons to come. $302.95 Zappos
Rag & Bone Tailcoat
a bold silhouette with menswear detailing and I’m sold. This would up the style
quotient of basic jeans and a tee for sure, and it is from Rag & Bone, a
label known for their exquisite tailoring, especially their coats. $545 Shopbop
TSE Cashmere Sweater Dress
says luxury more than cashmere, and I’m sure that this TSE cashmere
sweater-dress is incredibly warm and cozy, and besides, that deep shade of blue
is just luscious. Also, unlike many other sweater-dresses, it is structured
enough to flatter your figure (as opposed to hanging like a sack, as many
cheaper options seem to do). $695 Saks Fifth Avenue
Jules Multi-Chain Necklace and
it comes to jewelry, my motto is “go big or go home”. I’m a huge fan of dramatic
statement pieces – the kind that you can throw on over a simple dress and look
like a million stylish bucks. This layered chain necklace and earrings fit the
bill perfectly. $320 Second City Store

Onyx Chess Set
but not least, a girl can’t live on fashion alone – that is where this
extravagant chess set comes in. Granted, you can still play the ultimate game of
strategy with a cheap plastic set, but that wouldn’t be very chic now, would it?
