ATTN: Friends and Family - My Holiday Wish List

My Fat-Chance, Not-Gunna-Happen-But-A-Girl-Can-Dream, Fingers-Crossed Holiday Wish-List:




Loeffler Randall Lula Side Zip Platform in snake-embossed leather, $695 on loefllerrandall.com

If these serpentine platform booties are as hard to walk in as the designer’s name is to pronounce, this girl is going to be in critical condition. But with shoes this impossibly chic, it’s a risk I’m willing to take. The gold-toned snake print is right on trend this season as animal prints surface once again, and every femme fatale should receive a pair this holiday season.






Blow By Blow, by Detmar Blow. $19.80, Amazon.com

Isabella Blow was one of fashions true geniuses. She was fascinating, eccentric, daring. She was one of the few lucky people that commanded Anna Wintour’s respect, and her loss was a true “blow” to the fashion world. In this new biography written by her husband, he gives us a real, intimate glimpse into her life and mind, her aristocratic childhood and her journey from assistant to the Editor at Vogue to Fashion Director at Tatler and muse and muse to many of the great designers of our time. Reading about this fantastic, yet very tragic beauty will be a real adventure, and I can’t wait to live vicariously through her outrageous hats!



$165 from Garbage Bag Dress on Etsy


This gorgeous, hand-made leather harness by Garbage Bag Dress can be worn beneath or on top of clothing and adds a bit of a tough, sexy edge to an everyday outfit. I wouldn’t recommend wearing this to the library or the coffee shop, but worn correctly, you can definitely transform a plain old LBD for cocktails or wear with a white oxford shirt and a blazer for an old-world Gothic look.



Devon Leigh Dark Blue Drusy Ring, $445, Endless.com


This chunky, Cleopatra-approved cocktail ring by jewelry designer and girl’s-best-friend Devon Leigh Sedlacek is decadent, organic, and looks like it belongs in a museum! The ornate gold setting plays off of the beautiful deep blue Agate Drusy stone that it hugs, and each one varies, so they are all one of a kind. Plus, you know it’s a winner when you start planning a party (and an outfit) just so you can have the perfect occassion to wear it.
Faux-Fur Lined Capelet, $218.00, Apartstyle.com


Even though Paul Rudd in Role Models (wrongfully) said “People Tend to Avoid People in Capes”, how wonderfully wonderful is this one from Apartstyle.com? And the best part is, it's FAUX! No cute, fuzzy, snuggly animals were harmed in the making of this amazing cape. It’s great for layering, and the waist-sinching belt is perfect for creating a sexy hourglass figure even when you’re wrapped and rolled in a veritable burrito of winter clothing.



Giant Gummy Bear, $12 Fredflare.com

Umm, this is cute and delicious!! I know it’s not wearable, but we fashionista’s gotta eat, right?? This gummy bear is 88 times the size of your everyday, run-of-the-mill chewy treat, and that is a timesaving goodie that us busy gals on the go can appreciate.
 Fiora Heels, $149, Rachel Rachel Roy on rachelroy.com

Loves. It. These. I know its like the dead of winter, but I think I deserve these....anyone care to differ? Hi-liter colors, plastic, AND spikes. These are the perfect colors to get one (me?) out of the winter doldrums. They make me long for a sunkissed tan, a mini-dress, a beachy destination, and these shoes!!!! Someone help me!


Axle Asymmetric Maxi Dress, $80, us.allsaints.com

Definitely NOT to be worn after holiday eating. Demi sheer, stretch body con maxi dress with asymmetric neck and arm detail. Awesome for layering, and I see this going great with my new Loeffler Randell snake-print booties and my Garbage Bag Dress body harness that some kind philanthropist (mom? dad?) will be buying me this holiday season.



Toy Watch Glow in the Dark Plasteramic Chronograph from saks.com, $191 - on sale!

I would definitely be the coolest kid on the block with this darkness-fighting Toy Watch. I love how bold and in your face Toy Watch watches are - everything from the color to the shape is totally fearless, and now you don't have to be afraid of the dark, either! Plus, all of those near and dear to me complain that I am always late (only fashionably so, I assure you), so this might benefit us all.

I also love this style:
Toy Watch Disco Colored Dial Watch in Neon Orange, on sale for $156 at saks.com



American Apparel Wool Cape, $155, americanapparel.net

It kind of reminds me of Hogwarts, and I like that. Enough said. It comes in tan, as well, which would be my preference, so I could channel the lady-like elegance of Grace Kelly or the equestrian sensibility of Charlotte Casiraghi.


Green Turban Beanie, $38 - oaknyc.com

I love hats, and this one is functional as a very warm winter accessorie, but its a real standout as well. Its a beanie with a twist - literally! Right there on the front...see it? As I mentioned to my favorite jewelry bloggers, Kaity and co. at Jewelry Dose Daily, I have the perfect jeweled brooch that I scored in a random antique furniture shop in Milan that I would plant right in the center.

Ok, almost at the end. I'm sure by now you've gotten a lot of inspiration for a lovely gift for me (hehehe?) but here are a couple more things I covet:


Chanel Inimitable Mascara, $30 from Neiman Marcus 



Three Stud Ring by Barbara Gongini, $77 on idontlikemondays.com 



Apollo Precision Tool Kit in Baby Pink, $43.50 on Amazon.com



But of course, I will be happy just spending time with my lovely friends and family this holiday season. (Rules and Restrictions May Apply.)

Love you all,
Renata
