Christmas Wish List

My family and boyfriend are secretly going about buying presents for the rest of the family, as am I. But I always want to know what I'm getting. Around birthday/Christmas time, I pester Stuart to give me hints about what I'm getting. He entertained me the first couple of times, but I guessed correctly every single time so he refuses to even speak about it these days :D

Regardless, here are some of the things I would be delighted to receive as gifts.


Zu 'Fuji' wedges. Even better than these though....are the ones I saw a few days ago when I walked into a Zu store. They had a new pair of wedges in there (the wedge portion of the patent peep-toe cut away dramatically, but they were oh-so-comfy!) which are unfortunately not yet on their website


Topshop leather skinnies (I did find an awesome straight legged, snug fit pair at an op-shop the other day, which are currently with the tailor for skinny-fying. Cannot wait!)

Chanel 2.55 bag; always have, always will want one <3>

Adore the Canon Rebel XTI Digital camera, would love anyone who bought me this forever. Cupboard love much? ;)


Influence. Nuf said.

Books would not go astray either. I'm the biggest book worm. My problem tends to be the speedreading, so that I'm always on the hunt for new books. Lucky op-shops have them too :)

I'm not going to give away what I've bought people for Christmas in this post though. Nooo sir....I love the surprise/delight on peoples faces when they open up presents you've given them (and hopefully not shock and horror :P)

Petra said...

Great wish list! Fingers crossed father christmas brings you all these goodies :)

I'm lusting after 'Influence' and a 2.55 also... They are just too perfect!

I cann't wait to see your leather skinnies!


Anika said...

Thanks guys :

Lisa, tell me about it...I've been lusting after a 2.55 for longer than it's considered healthy....I figure I'll just have to bite the bullet at some stage or find a vintage shop that does sell slightly discounted ones :/

Bella, I got my modified skinnies back. I haven't tried them on yet though. It's bout 35 degrees celcius here, so I don't want any Ross - Friends style leather dramas :)

fashion chalet, I got too sentimental about the black skinnies. I have never owned a pair that fit sooo fabuluously cough*sowilljusthavetoebayanotherpair*cough :D

unwise pedestrian, here's hoping you get Influence!

Petra, I'll try and slip into the skinnies (maybe with aircon on in the house? :) and take some snaps in the new year!
