Holiday Wish List: Day 21

WGSN Staffer: Nina Solomon, WGSN Art Director Creative Services


There’s something about a red lip; the glamour of it means you don’t need to think about the rest of your outfit.


I like Bobbi Brown’s Atomic Orange lipstick because it is coral-based and I can wear it day or night. It’s perfect for the holiday season, and throughout the winter months.


I have been looking for just the right boyfriend blazer since last season. Now that I live in LA, I think this key item will fast become a year-round staple. I can’t wait to pair it with this For Love and Lemons dress. I think the tailored masculine lines of the blazer perfectly complement this soft feminine style.


My active wardrobe is due for a complete overhaul. I’m sick of looking at my practical grey shapeless hoodies. I love this Koral Activewear mesh hoodie, adding a high dose of style into my daily workout items.


I’ve worn my trusty Chelsea boots down to the sole. It’s time to replace them with this newest direction in footwear – the cropped-ankle Rodeo boot. These ‘Carroll’ studded, pointy toe Marc Jacobs gems sit right at the top of my list Santa 🙂
