On My List

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is already over and we are staring Christmas right in the face. If I didn't cook and eat the turkey myself, I may have missed Thanksgiving all together. I feel like we were getting ready for Christmas right after Halloween. We're all hoping for great holiday sales, but I never thought playing Jingle Bells in October was the way to inspire people to shop.

In any case, it is THE shopping season (not that I need a season or an occasion), but it does help when I have to explain the credit card bills to my accountant, ahem, my husband. I love a good gift just like the next gal, so I've started my wish list in case "Santa" decides to come down the chimney.

The first two things on my list are both by Phillip Lim. It's been a while since I've bought anything by PL but oh boy, that's about to change. I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this peacoat leather beauty. The detachable hem gives the jacket so much versatility. I have several pieces of Phillip Lim outerwear...by far they are my most favorite. The fit and style are impeccable.

The Phillip Lim lovefest does not stop here. Take a peak at this beautiful sequined silk-chiffon top. The navy chiffon is adorned with gold, silver and bronze sequins giving an urban chic twist on evening wear. Cinch in the black grosgrain belt and layer it over draped pants -- it's a great alternative for cocktail attire.

The holidays are here. Whether you are making a list, buying off a list or just treating yourself, both of these beauties are winners.

Wow! that Phillip Lim jacket is truly an amazing piece!

I recently bought a BCBG dress (the drapey black and gold number?) I just wanted to let you know I wore it to the Claremont Christmas party last night....wow! so much fun to wear...my husband loved it too.
Thanks for having such good taste.
