Holiday Wish List: Day 11

WGSN Staffer: Sam Aldenton, Associate Digital Editor


This holiday season offers up a variety of temperatures for me, for parts of it I’ll be in the New York office, and in need of winter warmers. However, I’m also headed to Hawaii for some beach time, and then home to Australia, so I’ve planned my wish list with all of that in mind.

1. Isabel Marant


First up, I found this ridiculously marked down amazing Isabel Marant cocoon coat in the Barneys’ Black Friday sale and I can. not. stop. thinking. about. it.

2. Prada Lug Boots


Vestiaire Collective is my favourite designer consignment site and is perfect for hunting down those pieces you hesitated on or couldn’t find when they first came out. I’ve been eyeing these Prada Lug Sole Zip Front Ankle Boots from the brand’s Fall 13/14 collection which sold out and I’ve finally found them again. Fingers crossed Santa is feeling benevolent this year 😉


3. Minimale Animale swimsuit

I’ll be headed to Hawaii in December and have had my eye on a couple of swimsuits from my favourite swim brand Minimale Animale. I discovered the LA label when I was covering Miami Fashion Week a few years ago and they’re one of the only brands doing a high cut brief right now, which I can’t get enough of.

4. Cashmere jogger pants

After Hawaii I’m heading home to Australia for Christmas and these joggers from White and Warren would be perfect for the very long 24-hour flight back to New York.

5. Missoma necklace


Finally, how could I neglect to have a little something sparkly on my list. I absolutely love this horn necklace on a satellite chain from Missoma. It was also designed by British blogger Lucy Williams.

Most wedding photographers prefer the Mesoamerican ruins,
and popular beach resorts as wedding locations.
There are miles of unspoiled white sand beaches and crystal clear
water, trekking through the desert (especially in the winter), whale watching, shark fishing and also lots
of choices in water sports such as scuba-diving and kayaking.

Having said that, there are many foreigners that achieve this by a standard work around being that the law does allow foreigners to hold property on

Because of this the price is low compared to other similar communities, priced only at $260,000 USD.
As of early July 2010, only 2 of 6 homes in Villas Tranquilidad
are remaining. Taking a Playa del Carmen all inclusive vacation takes much of the worry out
of the planning.
