One of my favourite parts of running a style blog, is getting to go through email subscriptions, catalogs, websites – you name it -, prowling for great clothes that I love! Sharing my style with you is what I love, and today I get to do that again for #WishlistWednesday for part two of my Christmas wishlist. A couple of weeks ago, I created part one of this wishlist…
Today’s wishlist is going to focus mainly on accessories and things that I love (as opposed to clothing…):
Gold-Tone Bow Stud Earrings, Kate Spade New York, $67.04
I have really been getting into earrings this past year. I have really sensitive ears, so no all earrings work well with me…but lately, I have found as long as I stay away from cheaper brands, I am home-free! These bow earrings by Kate Spade New York are adorable, and personally…I love the all-gold motif (#teamgold)
Long-Knit Inset Leather Gloves, BCBG Max., $135.00
Like most, as I grow into adulthood, my style has completely changed. I like the more sophisticated look and with sophistication, comes expensive things (of course, any lady would love an expensive item or two). One of those expensive accessories that I am in love with right now are long, black, leather gloves. Personally, I am not brand-picky when it comes to hats and gloves, but these are to-die-for. (However, I did see this exact type at Winners…hint hint Mom)
Warm Up to It Muff Bag, mark. by Avon, $38.00
I profiled this in my very first gift-guide (check it out here), so of course it has to be on my Christmas wishlist this year. It is SO adorable – I love faux fur, and this muff bag is the perfect bag to keep me looking fab this Winter season. mark.Avon makes the best clutches and handbags (in my opinion). I have so many, thanks to my mother being an Avon rep. Believe me when I say that mark.Avon is completely worth it.
Two of a Kind Jeweled Bottle Stopper, Kate Spade, $35.07
Much to my mother’s dismay (hehe), I do enjoy the casual glass of wine, and although it may be tempting to many to drink the entire bottle in one sitting…I usually have a a glass or two. With this wine stopper, you can stop your bottles in style. Kate Spade does it again…does she have everything?! Pretty much…
Mark Jacobs Daisy Perfume, Various drug stores, ~$50.00
Okay, I know I am a little behind on this one. Everyone I know has a bottle of this perfume, which makes it easy to steal swatches here and there before heading out for the night (reality of living with all girls). However, it’s time that I get myself a bottle of this sweet-smelling, amazing, jaw dropping, butterfly smelling perfume. That was a lot of adjectives…I know. It’s how much I would love to sport this scent…just sayin’.
Put a Bow on it Drop Earrings, Kate Spade New York @ Lord and Taylor, $71.54
I know I already put a pair of bow earrings on the list…but these are literally too hard to resist. The pearls with the bows? The drop style? Come on… can I just be rich now? These cutesy little earrings are adorable and they may have to become my favourite ones in the jewelry box!
Initial Charm Pendent Necklace, Kohl’s, $43.75
When I came on the blog scene (first through Instagram), this ampersand necklace was all the rage. I saw it on every pretty lady I follow on Instagram. I would have loved to purchase one for myself, however I could not find a retailer that really fit my needs (I tried Etsy, along with other smaller retailers). Finally, it has become a bit more mainstream, which is why this year, I want to be sporting one around my neck!!
Classic Winchester Watch, Daniel Wellington @ Amazon, $125.07
Okay, technically, this is what I am planning on getting for myself when I graduate in the Spring…however, it could very well be my Christmas gift as well! I really admire Daniel Wellington watches. I find a lot of watches to be extremely flashy, and even though I love the bling, I don’t like flashing too much around. This understated design is simple, chic and completely classic. Plus, it had me at the pink and navy stripe…
Cedar Street Jensen, Kate Spade New York, $378.00
This is definitely not something I need. However, I feel like if someone were to ask me what my “big ticket item” was this Christmas…this would be my go-to answer. This bag is everything that is right with Kate Spade. So what does that mean? Well, I will tell you. It’s classic. It will never go out of style. It’s structured. It is big. It is marvelous. It is wonderful. Sold yet? Doesn’t matter…this bag sold me about a year and a half ago when I first laid eyes on it.
Occasions and Contacts Journal, Kate Spade New York, $35.07
Can anyone tell what my favourite brand is so far thanks to this post? I can’t help but love Kate Spade. She just makes the best accessories, clothes, shoes, bags….everything really. This little book is perfect. I am big on paper everything. I use a planner (it’s like my bible), I write out my notes to study…and although I love technology….there is just something about writing something out that I love. Truly, it helps me remember important things…like dates, occasions and contacts…
Well there is part 2 of my wishlist (your welcome Mom!). Personally, I don’t love whining about what I want (I feel like I sound bratty), however this #WishlistWednesday series is a place for me to express my style, show you guys what I love, and possibly showcase some GREAT deals that are going on right now. If any of these items interested you or caught your eye…click on the titles because I have linked for you right where to get them yourself.
