Holiday 2010 Gift Guide: my wish list

As I hope you've gathered from my previous gift guides, I truly enjoy giving gifts--probably more than I enjoy receiving them. However, if Santa decided to open up his big red bag to anything my heart desires, here's what's on my dream wish list.

Clockwise from top left (click on links to go directly to products):


I don't know about you, but I've been freezing the last few weeks. This Talini Fox Coat, $3,600, is totally extravagant and sure to draw nasty stares, but damn if it won't keep me toasty.

Philip Crangi is one of my favorite jewelry designers out there, and I love him even more for his weird, slightly Goth Giles & Brother line, which is actually somewhat affordable, as in this Large Antler Necklace, $250

All Saints Spitalfields has quickly become one of my new favorite stores, and while I love their drapey everyday basics, they make some pretty fabulous nighttime clothes too, such as the Devo Mini Dress, $490

Like pretty much every woman I know, I think the sun rises and sets in the house of Lanvin. This Leopard Sleep Kit, $490, seems wildly impractical and is thus something I'd never buy myself, but I'd likely live in the slippers and sleeping mask.

One of those totally practical, must-have items that I don't own is a pair of nude pumps. Loeffler Randall's Esther platform pump, $450, is the stuff dreams--or maybe just mile-long legs--are made of.

There's been quite the uproar over this Jonathan Adler pillow, featuring a quote made by Kate Moss earlier this year. I think it's a pretty kitschy subversion of glamour--which is, in turn, pretty glamorous. "Nothing Tastes As Good..." Pillow, $116

I'm a perfume junkie, ever in search of my holy grail scent. Comme des Garcons Kyoto, $75, may not be holy, but it smells like the inside of a Japanese temple; in other words, heavenly.

My ideal bag wavers between the Balenciaga Day hobo, the YSL Downtown Tote, and the Proenza Schouler PS1 satchel, $1,595. I'd gladly take any of the three, but my current favorite is the PS1.

I am of a dying breed of woman in that I sleep in a nightgown; they're becoming harder to find. But why women would want to sleep in flannels instead of something as gorgeous as this Elle Macpherson Intimates Boudoir satin boned-cup chemise, $175, is beyond me.
