Is it too early to think about Christmas Wish Lists? Judging by the fact that all the department stores have been decked out since the day after Halloween, I’d say wish (or perhaps shop) away!
Clearly, this list is for the mostly casual girl that likes a little sparkle and a nice, red lip from time to time. Hmmm, I wonder who I was channeling when I put this together.
Take a look at some of these can’t fail items, if you need inspiration for your own list (I’m sorry, I do not comprehend this concept) or if you are shopping for some special chick(s) this year. (Shop them on my Polyvore page.)
Anything I’m missing? What’s at the top of your list? Let me know in the comments below!
I’ve been carrying a super cool Ralph Lauren tote for several years now. It’s this shiny black leather tote with a “pinking shears” look along the top edge.
I get compliments on it almost daily and I love how it’s firm sides stand up so I can see inside it at all times. My 15″ laptop fits in it along with my iPad, snacks for post-school sports practices, swim goggles, mittens and a hat, my wallet and a small bag of personal affects.
Lately, I’ve been noticing that the handles, which are anchored by small gold-ish square hardware, are starting to wear thin. The day where one of those handles snaps is coming soon and I can’t be without a tote that gets me through virtually every day.
So my hunt has begun – no pun intended – and my top pick so far is this awesome HUNTER Nylon Moustache Messenger Bag. I love how simple it is and while I’m not a huge fan of big, fat labels on things – I do love the bright pop of red and white against the black background. I also love that there are both short and long-handled options, which is something my current bag doesn’t have.
