As I’m coming up with a list for Santa this year, I’m realizing that all I really want are beauty products. Don’t get me wrong, there are a handful (ok, a million) of clothes/accessories/shoes I have my eye one, but those kinds of things I like to buy for myself, because A. I like the act of going to the store and basking in that rush I feel when I swipe my plastic and B. big purchases seem more special when I work for them. Oh and C. I feel uncomfortable when people spend a lot of money on me on stuff that isn’t totally necessary. Like, spend that on yourself, you prob deserve it! Anyway, most of these little trinkets are under $50, with the exception of the perfume and candle, and make great presents/stocking stuffers for your sis, mom, gf… or daughter. AHEM, MOM!READ MORE
I really am like, an awful vegetarian sometimes. I’m just a sucker for leather used in nonconventional ways! Sorry boutcha, PETA. Leather is trending real hard right now, especially colored leather, and it’s not just in jacket form. I need to get my hands on a leather dress and/or shirt pronto! These are all grossly out of my price range, but hey, a girl can dream.

Alexander McQueen Pleated Leather Dress
Maje Suzanne Metallic Leather T Shirt
McQ Leather Mini
Lanvin Leather Ankle Boots
Joseph Frank Leather Kilt Style Mini

I never used to drop money on lingerie, because I always felt like it went unappreciated! No one ever saw it and if they did, they just want it to come off, and I’m like helloooo, can we just take a minute to admire the fact that this bra is Kiki Montparnasse? I mean, where’s the respect? One Valentine’s Day spent solo, I took myself shopping for some quality lingerie (Sad? I think not.) and spent the night all dolled up in bed with some scented candles, a box of chocolates, and played video games for hours. For real though, it was a great night. It was then I realized that you wear lingerie for yourself to make yourself feel confident. Duh.
Anyway, I have had my eye on these four sets for a minute now. These are all Stella McCartney, ‘cept for the 2nd one. That one is Kiki Montparnasse, worn in the first photo by my girl crush, Rosie Huntington-Whitley. What a mega-babe!
