Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply – this Christmas.
 I honestly hate Christmas list making, but if it’s one thing I’ve been coveting all year it’s this Morocco Headboard from West Elm. I’m determined to add this geometric carved chocolate wood headboard to my decor. It’s one of those things that are in that image I keep fresh in my mind of my dream apartment – and it may just be the first piece I add to start building it in the real world.
 If I’m honest with myself and everyone else, I’ll admit that for many facets of my life – I live in organized chaos. I’ve tried to structure my life out in a leather bound planner before, but I always end up abandoning at some point. I find my smart phone and Google planners to be a pain in my rear end. So this time my theory is that if I get one that’s really pretty, like this emerald green Smythson diary, I won’t be able to stop myself from writing everything down in it.
 So it’s no secret that I love Samantha Jones more than Carrie Bradshaw – which to some may seem sacrilegious, but I digress it’s the truth. This Lazar wool-crepe blazer from Preen beckons “Samantha!” It’s gorgeous, it’s vibrant, and… it’s a little too much. Perfect for a suit or a pair of jeans, it’s seventies chic and I want it!
 I lament the rise of the cell phone for the very reason that it caused the demise of the wrist watch. Perhaps it’s all the time I spent learning how to tell time, but it was a valuable – self-taught lesson, and I want to use it on something as gorgeous as this grey Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘Amy’ Leather Strap Watch.
 I have a love of sequins that can at times get irrational. I’ve hunted for the perfect vintage black sequin dress and found it and this stunning skirt is just one of those great finds. This pale gold sequin pencil skirt reminds me of the skirt I tried to swipe from my mother’s closet time and time again only to be reprimanded for touching things that didn’t belong to me.
