the ombre plaid coat from urban outfitters has been on my mind non-stop lately. i'm not usually one to fall for plaid outerwear (or any pattern, to begin with, especially houndstooth or tweed) but this coat looks so cosy and canadian that i can't help but long for it. its shape is the deciding factor: i mean, how can you not appreciate such a well-constructed drop-waist and the perfect length of sleeves ? the only issue would be its warmth, but aided by simple layers, i could wear it all through the winter, no doubt. the price tag is really good too (approximately $100), and so the piece has found a spot on my christmas wishlist as of late.
alongside which are the samsung slyde cellie in pink; the american apparel raglan in dark violet or triblend black, and a subscription to marie claire magazine. i've already enumerated the (many) novels i'm lusting after. and, not pictured, is the frederik fekkai celebration of style (a set of coiff products, such as an anti-frizz creme, a staightening balm and a finishing creme, all in miniature formats) as well as gift certificates (hello joefreshstyle, starbucks, shopper's drug mart, american apparel, aritzia or chapters) and an eyelash curler.
i know for a fact that i'm terribly greedy. to think, some people cannot even permit themselves to give gifts during the holiday season, and i'm here with an arm's length list of sufficiently pricey items that are far from necessities. i'm not expecting the half of these things, i just like dreaming up infinite wishlists (as we all do, right ?). as a matter of fact, if i had to pick just three things to ask for this christmas, it would be lots of snow, holiday cheer and the good health of the loved ones who celebrate the season with me.
happy holidays !
