Second City Style’s 12 Days of Christmas (Shopping) ’09. Simona Wishes To Feel Like A Star

December 17, 2009 • Shopping

Every year I clamor for what celebs wear at awards shows, major events, nights on the town or just walking down the street. When it looks good, of course (and you know we can’t really say that for those gaudy leopard print coats or lace tights.)

If only I had one day to do some dream shopping, here’s what would make me feel like a star.

Rihanna – Balmain Crystal-Embellished Military Jacket,, 33 (0) 1 47 20 78 55.

Michael Jackson may be gone but his clothing lives on. Yes, Rihanna and
Beyonce have rocked the look, but so has little Dakota Fanning. I’d
kill for a trendy Balmain military jacket, if only it was in my price

Sarah Jessica Parker – Theory Tuxedo Blazer, $415.

Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, and even Kelly Osbourne have rocked sharp shoulders. And so have I.  But I’m still hoping for a sculpted boyfriend blazer with Sarah Jessica Parker power shoulders … and yes, it must come with shoulder pads!

Jennine Tamm Jacob – Steve Madden Tuxxedo Flat, $69.95

Style blogger Jennine Tamm Jacob, creator of The Coveted may not be a full-fledged celeb yet, but her style certainly warrants.  Just check out these luscious black and white lace-up Oxford-inspired flats with her blue print dress. One of the few items on this list that’s actually affordable.

Dita Von Teese – MAC Lipstick in Russian Red, $14

I covet Dita Von Teese’s blood red lips. One of few people on Earth that can wear this bright color without looking garish. Well, I guess I’ll give it a try. I’d surely go for MAC’s Russian Red color. Not only is it MAC, but Dita’s been using this hue for ages!

Shenae Grimes – Lna Zipper Leggings, $105.00

While I wouldn’t kill for Shenae Grimes’ girly sexpot style, I do enjoy me a good pair of zippered leggings. These are trendy, but not over-the-top.


Michelle Monaghan – Imoni Slashed Extra Long Gloves, $229.46

The 80s are back and better then ever. While I don’t know if I could go for Michelle Monaghan’s technicolor Peter Som dress, I would enjoy a nice thick bracelet or some fingerless gloves in a bright yellow hue.

Here’s to a bright and cheery (and not too expensive!) holiday season.
