2012 Holiday Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 20, 2012

My turn for a holiday wishlist. I’m very lucky and have already received and opened gifts from my husband’s family and I have already received so many amazing things, many from my Amazon Wishlist. I know people think it is boring to buy from wishlists, but I really love receiving things I picked for myself but probably wouldn’t spend my own money on – luxury stuff, beauty items, etc.

Anyway, the blog holiday wishlist is another beast. I’m going all out on some things I would never ask for. However, some of these aren’t bad at all.

Philip Crangi Trinket Box from the Target+Neiman Marcus holiday collection. This is currently $69.99, but since it isn’t sold out, I’m waiting for it (and some of it’s friends in that collection) to go on sale before I get one of my own.

Prada Flower-Applique Spazzolato Oxford. These are on sale at Neiman Marcus for $904. I would wear these to death. They are beautiful.

Antique Owl Watch Necklace from Fred Flare. A hot deal at $24. So cute.

OMG also from Fred Flare, this total fake McQueen studded clutch. $24.99!

A puppy! I only want a rescue dog though. Smaller than 15 lbs full-grown would be good.

The name is spelled incorrectly, but the Alexander Wang Jaime Chastity Satchel is still fabulous. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue for $925.

Finally, I would like Petra Island in upstate New York. On the island are 2 buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The island is heart-shaped. I am obsessed. I have been plotting a bigger blog post about it but I have to put it in my wishlist first. Does anyone have a spare $20 million to give me?

Happy holidays everyone. I am traveling for a bit but will be back to write my recaps before the end of 2012.

Instagram Roundup #4

by Jamie Sanford on August 23, 2012

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Still having macaron obsession. I bought a batch from Sugar & Plumm for Will and I to enjoy during the Olympic opening ceremonies.

As is the tradition now, we went to the Melting Pot for our Meet-A-Versary (this year was 12 years since we first met in person).

I was THRILLED to see that camera behind Gabby Douglas while watching some gymnastics. People say that film cameras are making a comeback, but I think they haven’t left. It’s certainly easier to use digital, but there is something inherent to film that will never be replicated.

I took this while under my fantastic Britto umbrella.

One of the best parts of the NJ State Fair was watching the 4-H kids walking their alpacas through an obstacle course while holding an egg on a spoon.

I also hung out with this baby chick at the fair. So cute.

We bought the best ice cube tray ever at Bed Bath & Beyond. My root beer was greatly improved by a skull & crossbones.

My Holiday Wishlist: Kelly Kreth, Part 2

by Jamie Sanford on December 2, 2010

Striped and Fabulous.

Kelly Kreth

(Today’s guest post was contributed by Kelly Kreth. I “met” Kelly online around 10 years ago, and since then she’s made me jewelry, she’s been the subject of one of the best photos I’ve ever taken, and thoroughly kicked my ass in Facebook Scrabble. Check out her new blog which explores optimism and pessimism with great humor and frankness. Check out Part 1 of Kelly’s Holiday Wishlist here.)

Wow! That first part took a lot out of me. So I think I’ll start this second part off with a nice bottle of champagne. [Hell, 52 bottles. One for each week. Veuve Clicquot Rose is a “perfectly balanced rosé which combines elegance and personality. This delectable champagne is beautifully ample and full of charm. It is a delicious wine in early bloom, a rosé with character, wonderful as an aperitif to be shared as a twosome [or for Kelly, alone] or with dear friends.” $71.99 per bottle.

If this booze doesn’t get me sufficiently soused, I’d also like this vodka, but mostly because I love the bottle. $41.99.

Once I am sufficiently buzzed, it’s not enough to just feel good, but I’ll also need to look good. Hence my desire for sexy undies from my favorite lingerie line, Agent Provocateur. I’d pretty much take any of the pieces on the site, but if I had to pick one it’d be this Alina bra, $180 and panty $180.

Whenever I travel or even just stay the night at someone’s home, I always hate having to carry my big daytime bag and also bring a smaller, fancier clutch for evening. Tiffany’s of Breakfast at… fame has come up with a gorgeous solution. This metallic tote reverses to tan for a day look and has a smaller gold clutch attached for evening. How brilliant! Holly Golightly would think it was darling, darling. It is part of their new leather collection, and costs $595. If you aren’t hot for beige and gold, their other color combos are: Tiffany blue and platinum, coral suede and gold, and black and onyx.

And speaking of Tiffany’s, I’ve always wanted two carat diamond stud earrings. These beauties will run about $11,000, but as you all know, as cliché as it sounds, diamonds are forevah.

Now that my ears are a’sparkling, I’d want my wrist to not be naked. I’ve passed the TENO store in Soho tons of times and always marvel at this bracelet. For $1650, it seems pricey for rubber and some gold, but it is a wish list…

I have a flat-screen Bravia tv in my bedroom but it is only 26 inches. I’d love a 40-inch one for my living room. (Currently available for $1,349.)

And now that I’d no longer have to invite those who want to watch tv with me to lay in my bed, I’d get a new couch. Because I am neurotic about keeping everything in my home black, white and red. I’d get this couch, the Antoinette Fainting Sofa at Urban Outfitters for $578.

In case there still is someone who’d like to lay in bed and watch tv with me, I’d get an assortment of these creative black and white pillowcases at Urban Outftters for $28 a pair.

And on that note, I am exhausted; to all a good holiday and to all a good night.
