Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply.
 Is it too early to start thinking about what I’d like to ring in the new year with? Perhaps a bottle of Veuve Clicquot or Dom Perignon and this adorable scalloped tiger skirt from Timo Weiland. It’s a little Blair Waldorf with a little edge and maybe that’s why I love it so much, but it’s definitely on my birthday/Christmas list this year.
 I’m heading to Paris in a matter of weeks and if any brand knows the city of lights it’s Louis Vuitton (and Chanel of course). They’ve got guides for quite a few of the fashion capitals around the world, and the Louis Vuitton City Guide 2011 features 600 addresses that embody the essence of Paris. A few Audrey Hepburn films, a Gossip Girl episode, and a Louis Vuitton City Guide later and I’ll have the perfect Parisian getaway planned to perfection.
 I own the Manta Ray bangle, it’s positively stunning and it’s created a sort of obsession with the Alkemie line. The Starfish ring is next on my must have list, and I’m looking to collect all the animalistic cast in the Alkemie collection. They’re simple, but gorgeous – and happen to be socially and environmentally responsible; each piece is made from 100% reclaimed metal, hand crafted in Los Angeles.
 My penchant for odd little pendants continues, from Jessics de Lotz Jewellery, the Red Relished Resin Apple Necklace is quirky and that’s just the way I like it. Perhaps it’s the apple Snow White ate, or the forbidden fruit, but somehow this ravished apple is sexy and dark.
 From my fingernails to my feet, wine is one of my favorite shades for Fall, and booties are one of those fall necessities. These Proenza Schouler Lace-up booties in wine suede are luxurious and provocative. Not to mention, the 4.5 inch heel makes them sort of bearable for the New York City streets that seem to be ripping my feet and my favorite heels to shreds.
