Admittedly, at times I can be a spendthrifty, Discover Card-toting, instant gratification shopper. But, with three weeks before the next student loan check and bills to pay, I'm limited to just posting the pretty things that I would want for Christmas if A) Santa Claus were real and B) Santa Claus were a very generous sugar daddy. Materialism ahoy.
Marc Jacobs lizard-skin bad-ass cuff watch
because my current watch has three dots and no numbers, and I haven't really know if it was 4:40 or 5:40 for seven years now.
Matt & Nat baby blue Jorja Fox bag
because I can think of no classier way to smuggle a pair of flats, a sandwich, a magazine, a sweater, and possibly even my cat into work than with a big, beautiful purse.
The perfect not-too-cropped motorcrossy leather jacket
because "winter" in Cincinnati means "windy and 30 degrees", which means a puffy Columbia coat is just silly.
An ipod that will make running through the park slightly more motivating
because my regular ipod requires a arm-strap holder for workouts that leaves a very odd tan line of my left bicep.
For Noah: a laptop of his own. For me: not having to share my laptop when I want to watch "Gossip Girl" and he wants to work on silly things like finishing his Master's.
A pretty, pretty dress from French Connection
because IT'S NOT BLACK!
I still do not have a new camera.
because I'd love to put more photos of the cat on the internet.
The Allumonde ring (hint! only $35!)
because my current ring flies off when I gesture too grandly. Also, oooh, shiny.
Grey Citizens of Humanity jeans
because high-rise pants = happy girl.
Things to put in my stocking include:
Anything in which Gael wears a dress
The exhibition catalogue for "Diane Arbus: Revelations"
Warm (sexy) socks
Yummy and not-cloying lotion
