Happy Holidays, everyone! Isn't this time of year just the greatest? Being the lover of all things clothing, shoes and accessories that I am, it'd be a good guess to say that I only think so because of all the prettily wrapped packages my boyfriend, friends and family spoil me with, but such is not so. I love Christmas for the music, and the lights; the TV specials, and the food (yum). And, most importantly, for all of the time I get to spend with those dearest to me. There's nothing in the world that gives me the warm and fuzzies like a shared bottle of wine with girlfriends, or hitting up the spa with my mama, or trying to keep up with my boyfriend as we shred down the hills at Blue Mountain. Everything is just so...sparkly, and light, and joyous in December.
That being said, I do still squeal like a little girl when I unwrap that perfect gift I've been wanting all year.
Here's a list of the top three pressies I'm begging Santa for this December 25.
TNA Aspen Knee-Length Parka
Laugh as you might, you lucky Californians and other southern US'ers, but being Canadian, there is nothing more lust-worthy, or practical, to ask for at Christmas than an uber warm, super cozy parka. And the fact that this one by TNA, available at the always fashionable Aritzia, is adorable and slim-fitting (not bulky) to boot? Well, that's just a bonus on top of the lack of frost bite it allows!
Just take it from the always stylish, talented and gorgeous actress, Ashley Greene: "In Vancouver, I found my favorite store on the face of the planet - Aritzia. Every time I filmed there, I'd basically clean out the store. It was a nice thing because they only had it in Canada, but now it's also in New York. I feel that's going to get me into a lot of trouble."
I feel your pain, Ashley, I feel your pain.
Nightcap High Neck Victorian Lace Dress
This dress literally makes me forget to breathe. It's just...heaven, in dress form. It's ladylike yet sexy, and completely unexpected with its high neck and super mini, scalloped hem. Take a cue from Vanessa Hudgens or reality star Kristen Cavallari, who have both dawned similar dresses by the brand, and pair yours with loose, mused hair for a sexy, modern look.
Novella Royale Janis Bells
These extremely flared Janis Bells by Novella Royale are perfect for any bohemian babe's New Years party. Shimmery in all of their pewter glory, they'd be perfect with a sharp black blazer, slouchy white tank and fierce statement necklace for a night out on the town. Please, Santa, oh please? They're just so feminine, flattering and insanely comfy looking!
Wishing you all a safe, healthy and fab holiday season! Be merry. Be giving. Be happy.
