All that Glimmers is Gold – My Christmas Wishlist

Every year, I draw up a wishlist for Christmas, and eagerly wait for Christmas to arrive.  Since I’m Russian, I have to wait until January 7th to see what Santa has in store. But If you’re still looking for a gift for that special someone, here are some of my picks…       They’re golden.

The Cambridge Satchel is a sartorial staple for any fashionista.  All summer long, bright and fluorescent school bags swung off the shoulders of fashion’s elite. Made in England out of durable leather, these bags will be cherished for years.  While I love my deep purple satchel, but this Gold Metallic Satchel from Asos stands out from the [back]pack.

My second must-have item is an oversized gold watch from Michael Kors.  My gold watch broke recently, and I’m looking for a replacement, and this one came onto Shopbop just in time!  I love the classic white face, as well as the roman numerals.  While I love the rosegold and espresso-coloured watches in the new collection, a classic gold watch is still a thoughtful gift that will be appreciated when I make it in to work on time!

Ditch the ugly Christmas sweater and don this gold-lame sweater from Zara. Metallic knits are very trendy right now, and it would look great paired with jeans or a flowy maxi skirt.  Why not give one to grandma too? She’s always complaining about being cold!

Another accessory I can’t stop thinking about are collar necklaces.  Add some oomph to a plain button-down or wear it against bare skin and an LBD for a glamourous look.  This collar necklace from Dannijo is made of oxidized brass, and each piece is handmade in New York City.  I love the feminine design of this collar necklace, accentuated by the chainmail bow.  But what seals the deal for me is its name – the Stella.

I think the necklace would look darling on my cat, who shares the necklace’s namesake.

A young woman’s Christmas wishlist wouldn’t be complete without a dainty bauble wrapped in a light turquoise box.  This year, my wishes are locked in.  The Tiffany Locks emblem lock pendant has a vintage, classic feel, adorned with four round diamonds and the classic Tiffany & Co. engraving.  I’m not one for overpriced, overhyped precious metals, but certain pieces will always be timeless.

So much for silver belles, I’m a golden girl.
