My grownup Christmas list (that never made it down the chimney).

30 December 2008

While Barbie Dolls and play kitchens don’t rank particularly high on my list of needs these days, there’s nothing like writing to Santa (even if he tends to take the shape of an abused American Express card) to bring back the warmth of childhood holidays.  After all, what are visions of sugar plum fairies for while a gal keeps her manicured fingers crossed beneath the mistletoe?


Louis Vuitton Monogrammed Canvas Speedy bag $750

Despite the inevitable knockoff that exists somewhere on Canal Street, the LV Speedy is a classic bag that, much like its name implies, carries well with you wherever you go.  What can one place in a spacious 14″ by 9″ bag, you ask?  First class tickets to Fiji, a liter of Evian, and a prenuptial agreement for husband #1.

Jacob & Company rose gold 5-Time Zone watch $10,000

Typically adorned by members of the hip hop community, the 5-Time Zone Watch doesn’t mess around, and neither do its 5 carats of diamonds that encrust the bezel.  Pair this timepiece with jeans and a casual white oxford while zipping downtown for a latte or with your warmest fur on the way to the Grammys.  (Music mogul boyfriend optional.)

David Yurman Pave Quarterfoil ring $5,900

Because what’s two more carats (on your right hand, of course) as you wave goodbye to 2008 and kiss 2009 on both cheeks?

Santa, however, had other things in mind, placing me on the naughty list with a stern reminder that while a bit of bling can be wonderful, a thoughtful bargain is worth more than an exorbitant price tag.  I may not have Louis to accompany me to a New Year’s Eve party, but a circle of close friends and a toast to rationality suits me just fine.
