My Wish (Dream) List

Okay. There are a lot of pretty things out there this time of year. While of course the best things about Christmas are not things... I can't say I'd be disappointed to find a couple of these under the tree this year!

Here's my dreamy wishlist:

I tried these on twice -- at two different Nordstroms -- and they are perfect. Just perfect. I love the brown/blue combo, size, shape, everything.

anything by Kendra Scott

Le Creuset in Flame
I have a teapot and French oven in this hue and love the pop of color in my kitchen.

Acqua di Parma - the original
I wore this years ago and want to go back. Audrey Hepburn wore it, Cary Grant too.

Korres lipstick in Pink Frost
I've been looking for a pale frosty pink and the Korres mango lipsticks are great. (I don't think that's Pink Frost pictured. It really is pink and frosty.)

My husband gave me one of these for our anniversary this year and my plan is to get two more and wear all three together - one for each of my children.

a pretty iPad case
this one comes in a few great colors - my pick would be yellow, but this green is nice too

Also, Metallic Snake in Gold and Snake Print in Grey (both on sale and sold out in my size)

Stainless Steel Rice Cooker
I don't like our food to touch plastic while cooking - Oyama and Miracle make rice cookers with all stainless interiors.

This is such a classic everyday bag in the perfect neutral.

Just dreaming here for now. My husband pointed this out for me to try on at Nordstrom the other day. Good job, Hubs - I was surprised! What a lovely structured handbag. The red is a perfect medium hue that could be used as a neutral. Love. Also looks to be gorgeous in Peonia on the N-M site.

What's on your list???



  1. I love your wishlist!! I was just looking at Etsy this morning for an iPad case!

  2. Great Tory picks. I have the gold snake print, they are absolutely gorgeous and I just ordered the tumbled leather in royal tan.

  3. Your wish list is well thought out and in a variety of price points...maybe your husband reads your blog!

    I like the idea of the 3 David Yurman bangles...one for each child, very significant.

    Oh my the red Prada...isn't that a cheery bag to compensate for all this wind and rain?

    Whatever is under your tree ...no peeking!
    Have a Joyous Holiday!

    Hugs from the Hostess

  4. I also love the David Yurman bangle, one for each child. What a great idea, and beautiful bracelet:) Happy Holidays to you and your family!! Also love the Mulberry bag--great color, great structure.

  5. Dear Sparrow and Sparles,
    this wishlist could just go out to Santa in Berlin! Yesterday I was asked again what I wish (having birthday 5 days after Holy Eve) and I knew a lot - but one can never have enough sunglasses, bags and perfume... :-) I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Britta

  6. I hope Santa brings you everything on your list. Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas and a joyous, healthy and happy New Year.

  7. so what did you get? dying to know!

  8. thanks everyone for your comments & happy holiday wishes!
    Lizzy T - well, I bought the tan TB shoes & lipstick myself, but was given everything else on the list except the two handbags :) + some Tyler candles (love these), Ugg slippers and a beautiful ceramic box handpainted by my 9 year old. The KS earrings I got are the Trista Chain Swag Chandelier in Navy - gorgeous! pics & reviews soon :) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!
