Good morning my lovely readers! How was your week? December is finally here, and we’re getting closer to Christmas every day. I’m so excited! Christmas is my favourite holiday. I love decorating my house, and making Christmas recipes, but it also leaves me really tired, as I’m now.
This is my wishlist of December. Hope you enjoy it, as much as I do. There aren’t many things for the holidays in this list, but I’m planning to do an extra post about them. I just need to find some time in my schedule to do some “research”.
Here we go.
1. B Brian Atwood Paramour Suede High Heel Booties, $450.00, $315 (30% off) or €242.66.

It’s been a long time since I last showed you a pair of Brian Atwood shoes. So here’s a lovely pair of booties, from his B Brian Atwood line, in wine/dark brown. I really liked their shape, their color and their snake-embossed leather panel at the heel. I would really love to have them in my collection especially now that they’re 30% off. Unfortunately they’re not available in my size, but it could be in yours. Find out here. They’re also available in all black but I prefer this version.
2. Zara jacket with zipper, 79.95€.

I’ve been looking for a long time for this in my local Zara but it was sold out. It took me a while to decide whether I wanted to give the almost 80€, and now it’s gone. But I’m hoping to find it again. I think it would be a nice addition to my closet, as the zipper and the material makes it really special. Check it out here.
3. Diane von Furstenberg, Cassiana printed velvet pencil skirt, $275 $165.

From the moment I saw it on Helena from Brooklyn Blonde, I fell in love with that skirt. Unfortunately, I had a long time on my mind to post about it on this blog and it’s already sold out. With that price, it was expected, but it’s a pity. I blame the US sales. hehe… Our sales haven’t started yet, as they usually start on February, or after Christmas, if we’re lucky.
4. Bordello By Pleaser Platform Pumps, $66.00.

I saw these beautiful pumps on the feet of one of my fellow Greek bloggers, and I had to ask her about their brand. While searching for them, I found many other fantastic pairs, with sky-high heels, and huge platforms but today I’m just going to show you these. Apart from the 2 characteristics I’ve already stated, they are red mary-janes, with cute white dots. How can I not be in love with them? I need something dotty in my closet! If you loved them too, you can order them from Amazon in red or black.
5. VJ style smiling face bag, €24.40.

As you can clearly see, this bag is entirely inspired by Celine’s tote, but it’s much more economical. It can be yours here, for 24.40€ plus shipping costs. While searching for a site to buy online the Celine tote in B&W (with no luck), I came across this one too. It’s yet another look alike in B&W by Jessica Buurman.

The quality seems much better, and it clearly states that it’s inspired by Celine’s Luggage Tote Bag. The model is called Panda, made by calf leather, with free express worldwide shipping, for $139. Not bad at all. 🙂
How did you like this month’s wishlist? I’m hoping to find some time to make a more holiday appropriate one, with lots of sequins and glitters, and items to be worn on Christmas or New Year’s Eve. 🙂
One more thing before I leave you. A few days ago, Google announced that they’re going to cancel Google Friend Connect. I’m sure that most of you already know it. So from March 2012, they’re retiring the service for all non-Blogger sites (which made many people think, that it’s a strategic move to promote Google+). As GFC was a popular tool for bloggers, to build up followers, that means that from March 1st, we’re going to lose those followers.
What I want from you is to follow my blog via Bloglovin’, or Facebook, if you want to stay updated. Many bloggers have already removed the GFC widget from their sidebars, as gathering more followers there, doesn’t really matter anymore, and maybe I’ll do it too really soon. So, please, show me your support and help me and my blog, by following me elsewhere. It would mean a lot to me, and I really appreciate your doing it. I want to thank all my readers, and all my followers for coming to my blog and commenting so often, and I encourage all of you to do the same with your blogs.
Have a great weekend!♥ BLOGLOVIN / FACEBOOK ♥ ♥ Lookbook / Chicisimo ♥
