wishful thinking

some of my personal favorite holiday gift ideas.  these will go over well if the recipient is anything like me, or specifically–me.

coach poppy ostrich feather clutch, $398

kicking myself for not snatching this up when i had the chance (with a $100 off coupon no less!).  how was i supposed to know they’re limited edition??

 

marc by marc jacobs velvet sleeping mouse slippers, $195

these are so cute!  one of my favorite shoes and probably my favorite flats are the famous mbmj mouse flats…mine are spotted calf-hair.  these little guys are sleeping…cuties.

 

maria sharapova by cole haan air bacara ballet flat, $178

already on my wish list!

 

olympus pen e-p3, $900

this one’s been sitting in my wish list forever…some day, some day…

 

fuji instax 210, $92

i’m not picky, any instax will do for instant fun!

 

cambridge satchel for bloomingdale's, $155

cambridge satchels are hot, hot, hot…they’re everywhere now, and with imitators to boot!  this electric blue version is a bloomingdale’s exclusive.  i’ll be getting mine in yellow from my special someone this season.

 

j. crew darby glitter loafer, on sale: $175

because you can’t have too many sparkly shoes for the holidays and i’m obsessed with smoking slippers these days (they’re the new ballet flats!).  not only are the glitter ones on sale down from $215, j. crew’s also offering 30% off with code “JINGLE”.

 

christian louboutin coffee table book, $150

wow, sold out??  also been sitting in my wish list for a while…because the ladies love louboutin (at least this one does).

’nuff said

although what she had to say about them was kinda interesting too.

christian louboutin is en pointe

if you find christian louboutin’s painful, then these 8″ stiletto toe shoes will be murder on your feet.  they were designed for a charity auction to benefit the english national ballet.  msr. louboutin commented, “‘Isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven.”

i love ballet and louboutin but these are definitely meant for display, not wear.

high fashion meets high art in christian louboutin’s fall 2011 look book

i’m loving (and geeking out over) christian louboutin’s fall 2011 lookbook!!  this lookbook, which is photographed by peter lippman, is inspired by classic portraiture style and features recreations of iconic paintings.

art history is one of the few classes i got an a+ in college so i’m pretty stoked.
