Holiday Wish List: Day Four

Wish List Items:

This holiday season I’ll be looking forward to gifts that have created a notable buzz in the fashion world and will continue to resonate with consumers into next season.


First up, a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. There’s nothing more desirable than a sold-out item and this one has been sold out every time I check on their site. I definitely believe women should invest in special pieces, but I also think that some luxury items are overrated since everyone already has them so, this relatively new brand does it for me. I can’t wait to get my hands on the black mini bucket bag, a timeless and versatile piece that I’m hoping will find itself a very special place under my Christmas tree.


Something blue. There’s just something magical about getting a Little Tiffany’s blue box under your Christmas tree and this doesn´t involve spending thousands of dollars on diamonds, there are lovely silver necklaces from US$70 up at Tiffany’s.

A Yellow Helicopter. Calm down, I’m talking about the helicopter top designed by Rosie Assoulin. I would definitely buy any off the shoulder top right now if I could make some more room for them on my closet, they are a new must have for summer and resort season but this yellow beauty is definitely a statement piece worthy of investment.

And last but not least, the new Johanna Ortiz collection. I just can’t get enough of her and her flirty silhouettes. She is also taking advantage of the off-the-shoulder momentum, but mastering this new sexiness and focal point like nobody else. I’ve been proudly wearing these Colombian designs on my trips since the big boom on Summer 15 and getting lots of compliments for them, so I seriously need a few more and would probably began with a Gingham Top.
