what to gift (me).

on a personal note personal shopper Uncategorized

as is it getting closer to christmas, many (myself included) are in the homestretch of holiday gift shopping. while i love gift guides, it seems there are an abundance of them out there, which is helpful if you are still struggling to find the perfect something for the preppy mom, hipster dad, second wife, or the friend who just started grad school. i, on the other hand, know that instead of me telling you what pieces are perfect for that special someone (or acquaintance), what you really want to know is what i am wishing for this year.

my list is a mix of stylish must-haves, a few things to satisfy my love of sports and quirky extras. and while i know a toaster isn’t the most glamourous present, it is one that will be put to good use (and isn’t that the goal of a good gift?)

1. rag & bone “kemble” cardigan at shopbop
2. smythson fashion diary (because i’m old school)
3. kate spade doodle pen necklace (just like joan holloway’s)
4. marc by marc jacobs upper crusty ruth bracelet at shopbop
5. warhol x basquiat x burton snowboard (from 2009)
