What a girl wants

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!

Daily Covet: Coach Station Bag for you too!

The Coach Station Bag.  Today, I am coveting one for anyone, who loves a convenient mid-sized feel in a compact little handbag.

While I did covet the Station Bag for a long time, I acquired one back in about 1998 or so.  I have recently resurrected it, and have to tell you, I LOVE IT!

It has 3 inside pockets that you can easy slip things in and out of… think accordian file.  And you can pop your oversized sunglasses on the top without their oversized case because the soft leather won’t scratch your lenses.  It can also be worn as a crossbody bag or held demurely with the top handle.

My black Coach Station Bag has the classic bronze hardware, which is cool because gold is so big right now.  But if you absolutely must have silver, Coach does that too.  And if you prefer a vintage one, there are plenty of those.  Although I don’t know who wouldn’t want to hold on to this amazing little bag!

So this day, I am doing more of a product review.  This is a fabulous little bag, and luckily one bag that I don’t have to buy!

Daily Covet: Navy and White Striped Blazer

Looking Parisian-chic in stripes should be a cinch this season.  Anything and everything you could ever want can be found in stripes.  And this adorable blazer is no exception.  It has a great fit, it’s a great weight for spring and summer, and it looks great with every color under the sun.

My Banana Republic happens to be next door to Ann Taylor, where there is also an adorable red knit dress that I would love to wear with it for going out or a day at the office.  But throw it on with jeans and a bright yellow tee, and you have a cute “around town” outfit.   Or choose kelly green boyfriend chinos and a denim shirt for a business casual Friday and shopping with your best girls.  The possibilities are endless!  (See Polyvore.com for where to buy.)

One jacket, three ways!
