What A SheFinds Editor Wants For Christmas: Jen

As a sufferer of shopaholism, I often find myself browsing online shops and collecting links of items I desperately need, gazing longingly into boutique windows as I walk past, and wracking my brain to try and figure out how a $600 pair of boots could fit into my monthly budget. So, as might be expected, I always have a ready-made list of things I would like for when I just happen to stumble on a million dollars — or in case someone wants to buy me a Christmas present!

1. Santa Maria Novella Rosewater ($28): When I studied in Florence, my art history professor took us to an ancient apothecary that was hidden inside a church called Santa Maria Novella. I tried a bottle of this rosewater and instantly fell in love with the way it kept my skin hydrated and clear. It turns out that the recipe of water infused with rose petals is a great antiseptic and purifier, and it even reduces under eye puffiness and protects the skin against environmental elements. And that's just was it does for your face: Pour it into your bath and it will relieve sore muscles; pour it into your washing machine and it will refresh and disinfect your washables. Of course, at the time I was more interested in overpacking my suitcase with bottles of wine instead of rosewater, so I haven't had any since. I only recently discovered that you can buy it online!

2. Tod's Cindy Jais Ballerinas ($327): A gal can always use a new pair of shoes, and I already have the Tory Burches. These Tod's have elasticized sides so you know they are going to be comfortable, and they're from Italy so you know they are going to be well made. I am really enjoying the stark contrast in color, which gives them a modern look, but the bow detail adds a nice girly touch. Yes, I will definitely be needing these.

3. BCBG Max Azria Quilted Wristlet ($98): I would just love to have one of these gold-chained quilted wristlets…or two or three. They remind me of a Chanel (minus a thousand dollars or so), and the colors are amazing. I think my favorite is the one they call 'Royal Blue,' even though it looks quite purple to me. That whole box clutch thing seems to be coming back into style.

4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Essex Faille Dress ($384): Oh Marc, I could just eat some of your designs up with a spoon, they are so cute. This dress is like a beautiful three-tiered cake! I would probably only be able to wear it like one time, but it'd be worth it. Ahh, who am I kidding — I'd wear it to the grocery store.

5. Valentino Open-Temple Sunglasses ($340): My favorite accessory, (actually my favorite thing to wear, period), is a killer pair of sunglasses. I like these Valentinos because they have a great shape, the 'V' temple detail is pretty cool, and most likely not a lot of other people I know, if anyone, will have them. A good potential conversation starter.

Oh please Santa, can't I just have one of these things? I was so good this year.
