Well, that is no longer the problem. The problem now is that all the things I like are way too expensive. That's what happens when you go shopping in Tampa, with all its fancy, high-class stores.
So, without further ado, here is my over-priced Christmas list:
First up, these earrings from Betsey Johnson. I have some similar ones, which I bought on Ebay, but they're not as sparkly as these.
I also loved these Cole Haan boots (link), but I couldn't get a picture of them. They also come in green!At the international mall, I also saw this sweater in J. Crew. I'm not usually a huge J. Crew fan. Their stuff is a little too plain and traditional for me. But I do love this sweater. It's sparkly but not obnoxiously so. I actually tried it on, and it is so beautiful.
Kate Spade had this cute notebook. It says "Big Secrets. Brilliant Ideas." Perfect!
I also liked this sweater, by Juicy Couture. It's hard to see in the picture, but it has a little bit of gold thread detailing. It's very pretty.
Okay, this next one might be my favorite. I saw this Kate Spade bag on their website awhile ago. It's since sold out on the website, but there are still a few floating around on the internet. Anyway, I think it is so, so beautiful and elegant. It also comes in brown, with a black bow. I can't decide which one I like better.
Also from Kate Spade, these air quote gloves! So delightfully pretentious.
More sparkly shoes! I'm not sure where I'd ever wear shoes like this but, hey, we're just day-dreaming right?
Also love this bangle. On the inside it says "There's strength in numbers" and around the outside it says "hand in hand" over and over again.
More funny gloves from Kate Spade
I saw a Missoni scarf at Anthropologie that was beautiful. I'm not sure the one in the picture is it, but it's close. It was all different shades of pink, with a little bit of silver and gold, and some of the thread was sparkly. So pretty.
I think you'll notice there's a bit of a winter theme going on. Maybe that's just because that's what's in stores right now, but I also think it has to do with me being a Floridian. I think we Floridians lust over winter items because we never get to wear them. Seriously. I fall in love with basically every coat I see (although my Black Friday one is still my favorite).
Ah...if only I had lots and lots of money.
PS. Speaking of money, I didn't put the prices up because I thought it would ruin the fun. But should I put them up? Do you guys want to know the prices?
Anyway, if nothing else, this blog post definitely motivates me to work hard so that someday I'll actually be able to buy these nice things.
What are you guys dreaming of for Christmas?
PPS. I am not sponsored by any of the brands named above. In fact, as we discussed in this blog post, I am not sponsored by any one. But if any of the aforementioned brands want to send me some free stuff, or sponsor me, or whatever...holla!
