Wednesday, November 30, 2011

1 - West Elm's Tillary Modular Seating; 2 - Cavallini & Co's Butterfly Wall Calendar 2012
3 - Adam's Short Feather Embroidered Skirt; 4 - Kotur's Metallic Stingray Box Clutch
5 - Bvlgari's Jewel Charms Collection Prestige Set -- not online -- call 1.877.551.SAKS (7257).


Presents to give and presents to get. With the economy still slumping the wishlists my friends and I are exchanging are mostly simple pleasures like the Cavallini & Co Butterfly Wall Calendar above. As practicality dominates the external my personal wishlist is filled with luxuries -- pricier items that I'll have to save many, many pennies for.

In two weeks I'm moving into a new apartment that will yield some amazing views of the Financial District's spires and rooftops. A new place means a fresh start and I'm hoping to mix in some new furniture. I'm still holding a grudge against Pottery Barn but sister store West Elm is home to the sectional I'd love to own. Does anyone in the community own the Tillary sectional? I'd love to hear some reports about the quality, comfort and durability.

From feathers to sparkly clutches, this season's holiday parties are all about being bold. I'm in love with box clutches right now! A Judith Lieber is probably out of reach so I'm looking for similar designs in my price range. If sparkly's not your thing this House of Harlow Leopard Clutch also caught my eye.

The final splurge on my wishlist is the pretty Bvlgari charm fragrance gift set. I've never seen them all together like Saks has them. Seriously tempting! I'm more of a Chloe girl usually but I love the idea of being able to dab on a different fragrance each day for the next several months. Dropping casual hints to the boyfriend? You bet!

Next week will bring the annual holiday gift guide. Is there a category you'd like to see me cover?
