and I think really I'm just loving any excuse to post a festive picture or two (or as many as I can possibly fit in the allotted timeframe).
But better than that, I may as well use the season to present you with my 2012 Christmas Wish List - if Santa knows what's good for him he'll be working his credit card pretty right about now.
the HIT List
Valentino Techno Bow-Hem Dress
The fun-dorable (like, fun and adorable) Fuchsia boatneck dress has deep side pleats finishing in bows at the hem and will help you stand out, like a fashionable beacon, from the oh-so-last-decade, cherry red apparel people somehow feel obliged to pull out at this time of year.
Givenchy Pandora Bag
The washed sky-blue hue of this crazy angled bag is just divine. Totally unique silhouette and way too cute to possibly be holding all the world's evils in it's depths.
Dolce & Gabbana Raffia Crochet Wedges
I'm sorry, what!? Yes these are for real; raffia, crochet, colours and carvings! Oh my!!
Maison Martin Margiela Arm Cuffs
Wrist cuffs are cool no more! Arm cuffs are where it's at these days... green arm cuffs. Clean lines and a modern aesthetic for some futuristic cool, triple-M style.
Thierry Lasry Magnety Sunglasses
Tortoiseshell shot through with cobalt and violet hues. Graduated brown lenses and handmade in France the style is "futuristic vintage".
Lanvin Russian Dolls Set
6 Wooden Russian Dolls in a Lanvin boxed set, original drawings by Alber Elbaz designed exclusively for Christmas 2012 and handmade and hand painted in Italy.
Zimmermann Zoe Mesh Panelled One Piece
With spliced panels of blue, cream, red and pink paisley amongst cream mesh detailing, deep v-neck cut and slim racerback fit make this one sexy 'kini - or maybe it's to have the body wearing it that I should be wishing for?
hmm... I think I could go on forever.
