Second City Style’s 12 Days Of Christmas (Shopping). Day 13: Rachel Yeomans’ Finds Above a Dime Picks. Second City Style Fashion Blog

December 12, 2007 • Shopping


After combing through resale shops, vintage wear and discount deals
for our lovely and fashionable SCS readers, I have decided that my
personal Christmas list will consist of everything but. I love a good deal,
but after drooling over many-a-full-priced item throughout the year, here are some fabulous (yet not-so-frugal) finds I would love to see under my Christmas tree.


Marc Jacobs Short Trench Coat – ($1,900) Net-a-Porter

have only ever owned one trench in my style career, and it’s the standard,
classic useful trench that has weathered many storms and gone with every
outfit. So this Marc Jacobs cover-up is not necessarily needed, but the
fantastic green and trendy shorter length would make a perfect introduction
into the spring season.


Samsonite Black Label Luggage  ($300-$600) Neiman Marcus

Beauty Case ($300); Duffel ($400);
Wheeled Upright ($600); 22” Wheeled Upright ($500); Combining craftsmanship
and fashion to my business travels (priceless)


Italian Leather Vertical Laptop Wheeler
– ($295) SuperiorLuggage

Making sure I get in that airport terminal
line early enough to get an overhead compartment is stressful enough. Add
that stress to my back from my 20-pound briefcase, and I’m spent before I
even make it to my morning meetings. Not only is this adorable briefcase
slim enough to fit above any window seat, but the best Christmas present
would be saving me from those knots in my back!


Diane von
Furstenberg Bilboa Cowlneck Dress
– ($365) Saks Fifth Avenue

how I LOVE the sweater dress! I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect sweater
dress (or several) for winter that is simple enough for me to accessorize
for different occasions and shapely enough to avoid the weekend-wear look.
This one by Diane von Furstenberg is so elegant and lovely, I could be warm
and fashionable throughout the entire season!


Christian Louboutin La
Donna Mary Jane Pump
– ($600) Neiman Marcus

How can one woman’s closet ever be complete
without the classic Mary Jane pump?! I have a pair of Kedzie black patent
Mary Jane’s that I love, but I admit they are a strut and a leap away from
my dream of owning these gorgeous Louboutin’s. If I could have these for
Christmas, I’d be happy for two seasons!


David Yurman Citrine
Cushion Capri Pendant Necklace
– ($1,800) Neiman Marcus

I must now be
cliché and wrap up my Holiday Wish List with none other than the
extravagant piece of jewelry. But I have adored David Yurman for years and
one day wish to own just one of his pieces, and this gorgeous pendant is at
the moment on the top of that list.

Now I leave you dear readers, to
return to my deals and discounts. But thank you kindly for allowing me to
indulge in my seemingly ridiculous fashion fantasies for a couple
paragraphs. If Christmas is the time for wishing, I am taking it in stride!
Happy Holidays!!

  1. I love the trench. It’s a beautiful color! Being a man, though, I don’t get the buckles on the sleeves.
