What A SheFinds Writer Wants For Christmas: Erin

December 13, 2007 by SheFindsErin

This Christmas, my wish list is all about grown-up glamour. I crave the classics — pieces that make a fashionable impression and will continue to do so for years. Sure, there may be some initial sticker shock, but the timeless structure, femininity and style make these gifts that keep on giving.

1. The Hayden Bag from Dooney & Bourke ($500): This gorgeous, glossy bag looks like it would overwhelm wee Hayden Panettiere, Dooney & Bourke's muse and co-designer du jour. But its roominess, which hints at the oodles of luxe loot that must be stashed inside, is suitable for any woman who adores the classics with a twist. Sleek and lipstick red, the bag is a glam standout in a sea of drab winter black, and it's big enough to hold the hundreds of thank you notes I'd need to cover all the people who'd have to pitch in to make this extravagant wish come true.

2. Creed Fleurissimo Eau de Parfum ($190): Timeless and elegant, just like the scent's inspiration: Princess Grace of Monaco on her wedding day (the scent was commissioned by Prince Rainier for his bride). It's about time so high-end as a historically luxurious fragrance graced my vanity and my wrists. The floral, feminine notes of Bulgarian rose, violet, and Florentine iris make this the perfect transition-back-to-spring fragrance, and the emerald-green and cut crystal bottle is a fabulous find in itself.

3. Pinstriped wool cloche hat from Helen Welsh ($42): I've already invested in a kicky houndstooth swing coat (a nice change of pace from my standard black wool standby), but this flirty, '30s-inspired cloche hat is the winter accessory I've been missing. The pinstripes lend a menswear-esque feeling of order, but the black velvet bow and sweet shape make the overall effect decidedly feminine. Paired with bold red lips and a cheeky knowing smile, the look becomes a retro-chic throwback to go-getting women of yore.

4. A library full of fabulous inspiration ($30-$50): My current decor is enhanced (or, as some may see it, bedeviled) by stacks and stacks of artfully arranged magazines. But I'm ready for something more grown-up and orderly to adorn my Ikea coffee table. A collection of lovely, full-of-pictures books about fashion, design, art, and style would be the perfect centerpiece for my already reading-focused interior scheme. My guests and I can draw inspiration from the pages of 100 Years of Fashion Illustration, ooh and ahh over the haute baubles in Costume Jewelry for Haute Couture by Florence Muller, and lust over the chic, sophisticated personal style of designer Kelly Wearstler in her book, Modern Glamour: The Art of Unexpected Style.

5.
Sweet Life slingbacks from Nine West ($89): I may be a brunette hopping from house party to house party in chilly Chicago this New Year's, but these satin slingbacks would make me feel like a bombshell starlet partying in luxurious style in the Hollywood Hills. With a perfect combination of the season's shoe trends — metallics, a hidden platform, satin — these sexy and sturdy-looking pumps are glamorous gam-enhancers that make even trudging through slush in last year's snow boots seem worth it a thousand times over.
