As we get older, we begin to realize Mama wasn't kissing Santa Clause! And although it's quite a relief to know your dearest mother is still as saintly as you had hoped, it dawns on you: All of the holiday hooplah is all one big...fat...lie! What can I say? Life's tough. But...we get used to it; you know, not writing to the big guy for lavish gifts. We learn that it's better to give than receive, and that sometimes there are more important things to consider, liiiiike...the recession. Yet, sometimes I find myself writing that 'obligatory' list even at my age...just for fun (out of habit?!). I make my own list and check it twice. If you're still receiving gifts it can't hurt. In fact, I find that it makes it easier for your family & friends. They know exactly what you're into for the year...ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU
purposely POST THE LIST SMACK-DAB ON YOUR VERY OWN BLOG! (cough-cough)
(1).Prada's 1950's car-print collection is one of my favorites! Thanks to PRADA, Spring 2012 trends look promising! (2).DANNIJO Jewelry designers and sisters, Danielle and Jodie Snyder create hand-made jewelry using a mix of different metals. My fave right now is definitely the Cloe necklace. It's the perfect statement piece! (3). YSL went outside the box, during a fashion show, with these segmented gold hoops, "which encased each knot and resembled the biggest door-knocker earrings I’ve ever seen." - Couldn't agree more!! Beautiful new hair accessory! (4).Givenchy L’Or Céleste Starry Loose Powder - Adds just the right amount sparkle to just about any part of your body. (5). Lanvin - Alber Elbaz has created a new sunglasses collection with De Rigo that is scheduled to hit the counter—in Paris at least—in time for New Year’s Eve.(6). Miniature nail polishes from Le Métier de Beauté—luxe jewel-tone metallics. Holiday perfection! (7). Isabel Marant sneakers. They're a hit in NYC and Paris right now! (8). Dannijo Amara earrings! Yum!! (9).Karl Lagerfeld scarf - Let me put it this way, I would never put anyone else's face on my scarf/clothing!
Just wishful thinking! ;)
I hope everyone has a healthy, safe and fashionable holiday!!!
