As my husband and pals will tell you, I’m a nightmare to buy for. This is because I am terrible at waiting, so if I see something I like I will probably have already bought it for myself before I’ve had the chance to tell anybody that I want it. Since my birthday wishlist post worked so well – although apparently there was an awkward moment in which I nearly ended up with two of the Tatty Devine rainbow necklaces behind the scenes – I’m going to give this a go for Christmas too. Plus, if you’re anything like me, you probably also love having a nosy at what other people are wishing for.

Why, yes, after telling somebody earlier that I don’t need any more bags I’ve included two on my wishlist – although, to be fair, the Furla bag is my current Unrealistic Bag of Dreams (look how incredible it is! and it – almost – has my name on it!). The Olympus PEN is pretty unrealistic as well – all I know is I want a camera that’s easier to carry around with me than my SLR with anything more than my 50mm lens on it, but I can’t imagine spending more than the cost of an SLR to do so. I’ve loved the Dickins & Jones candy-cane striped dress since first I saw it, and Jes Baker is one of my favourite bloggers – I’m desperate to get my hands on her book.
The Crosley Cruiser is a shamefaced heart’s desire. As a proper music fan who buys most of the stuff she wants to keep on vinyl these days, I know that they’re no good for your records – but they’re so pretty! I have the music taste of your da – if your da was also a riot grrrl – and the aesthetics of a Zooey Deschanel movie role. The struggle is real, you guys!
