holiday wish list

Though we no longer believe in the portly old man sliding down chimneys in the dark of night, the magic of Christmas endures. The eggnog sipping and carol singing aside, what can be more magical than gift giving around the Holidays? Picking a thoughtful and appropriate cadeau for a loved one is the easiest way to say “I care and I listen.” However as is true in the case of countless men running into department stores on Christmas Eve clamoring to buy a last minute present, it is not always easy to figure out what a woman wants – assuming you don’t possess Mel Gibson’s supernatural powers. This year Fashionlines is making it is easy on everyone and publishing a stellar wish list that will send any girls heart aflutter with delight.

Banana Republic Cashmere Chalet Slipper
Your feet will get the royal treatment in this exquisite cashmere ballet slipper adorned with a pretty little bow. Delicately trimmed in soft leather and lined in luxurious cashmere, this feminine flat will make you feel like a princess every time you take a step. Forget it Cinderella! Glass is so last year.
Gucci Bianca Evening Clutch
If the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, then it would be safe to assert that a woman’s affections travel through a completely different route. I am yet to meet a lady whose eyes don’t light up at the very mention of purses. Nonetheless, it is that one special item that makes a girl go absolutely insane with excitement, like the The Bianca Evening Clutch by Gucci. Made of luxurious suede, the embellished clutch with an outsized buckle and mirror details is 4¾"H X 13¾"L X ½"W. But don’t be fooled by sheer size. Remember, great things come in small packages.
Lanvin Vermillion Choker
Accessories are the easiest way to update a wardrobe. Can’t afford the latest silk gowns cut by Alber Elbaz’s hand, but would love a piece of his unique interpretation of timeless elegance? Then opt for a luxurious 2-strand choker made of wool jersey covered pearls and crystals. The gorgeous piece with satin tie enclosure will make head turns at every holiday party and special gathering thereafter.
Peter Som Skirt
Peter Som is one of those wildly talented young designers whose pieces flatter the feminine figure with deceptively simple lines. His style is elegant with a twist of contemporary chic. To experiment with Som’s look try on this gorgeous silk faille full skirt with velvet trim. The piece is flattering on practically any figure as the waistband gathers for volume.
Diptyque Candles
Smells are closely tied with our fondest memories. Think of gooey marshmallows, cinnamon infused pumpkin pies, and candied apples. But gourmand recollections cannot be our sole remembrances. Add to your holiday tradition new favorite scents with aromatic candles from Diptyque. All the Diptyque fragrances are natural, whether they are woodsy, spicy, green, floral or fruity. It is Diptyque's proudest accomplishment to have never used a synthetic fragrance in developing its products. The individually hand-poured candles burn for an average of 50 to 60 hours and are made of paraffin wax with a lead-free wick.
Legwear from Wolford
Trend legwear has been receiving unprecedented attention this season. But in light of the proliferation of footless pantyhose to every wardrobe, we suggest a return to luxurious Wolford stockings. The legendary brand’s new collection is a testament to their commitment to unparalleled craftsmanship and timeless style. Combining luxurious materials with innovative shapes and extraordinary décor these pieces are positively au courant.
Smythson Fashion Diary by Missoni
There is something so romantic about keeping a diary. This year, instead of entrusting your deepest (and perhaps darkest) secrets to your shrink, you can write them down in a limited edition diary created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iconic Smythson Fashion Diary. Designed by Missoni, the diary is soft bound in Missoni’s colorful trademark knit with the inside cover lined in brown silk. In fact Smythson edited title section including fashion show dates, fashion council listings and fashion guides to London, Paris, New York and Milan. The city listings include fashion, jewelry and accessory shop addresses, places to eat, drink and stay, city maps, national holidays and key days and dates as well as year planners for 2007 and 2008. I dare say, “What more could a fashionista ask for?”
Monoi Body Glow II by Nars
Forget the chunky sweater grandma made and bare your flawless skin. Continuing in the tradition and spirit of French Polynesia, Nars launches Monoi Body Glow II to complement the original and all around best-selling favorite, Nars Body Glow. Monoi Body Glow II is the ultimate multi-purpose beauty oil and may be used for daily moisture, or as massage oil. This lightweight, sheer oil is absorbed immediately and instantly makes skin smooth and luminous.Capturing Monoi de Tahiti oil in its purest state, Monoi Body Glow II creates glowing, healthy looking, and naturally fragrant skin. Native to the South Pacific and France, Monoi de Tahiti oil is the result of macerating the native tiare flower (Tahitian gardenia) in refined coconut extract for at least ten days, slowly infusing the oil with nutrients as well as a delicate, natural fragrance. Each bottle of Nars Monoi Body Glow II retains an original tiare flower to capture the essence of this unique process.
Whether stepping out in a pair of gorgeous Christian Louboutin peeptoe platform slingbacks or getting your feet toasty by the crackling by the fire Christmas is a time to remember and be remembered. Show that special someone your true feelings with a gift chosen with half finesse, half pizzazz and all love.
