le chic batik : GIFTGUIDE : holiday 2009

4 Dec

________________________________________________________________________________________

‘Tis the season…for coveting things you cannot afford & imagining what your life would be like if you could have them. And in the spirit of things, I have created a gift guide with many things from my own wishlist:

________________________________________________________________________________________

Kate Spade Fiona Ballet Flat

$95

Zappos.com

These come in a bright color palette as well, perfect for my lineup of uncomfortable, extended family, holiday parties.

 Rachel Rachel Roy Dolman Crewneck Sweater Dress

$58.99

RachelRoy.com

I’m really into Rachel Roy & now she has an affordable collection, Rachel Rachel Roy. I like this dress because not only is it an awesome price, it’s all-occassion. I might be ever more drawn to it because of her “love” script necklace paired with it in the same tone. I prefer her “peace” script ($50), here.

Year-long subscription to The Believer

$45

BelieverMag.com

I love this magazine, it’s tricky to find, how fantastic if it came to my apartment all by itself!

Disney Couture Jewelry – Pirates Wrap w/ Gold Swords, in Red Plaid

$126

80spurple.com

I love this color plaid for fall/winter. Also, little known fact, Rashida Jones’ sister Kidada Jones designs for Disney Couture.

The Cambridge Chain in Gold – by Yokoo

$95

Etsy.com

I really love the knitwear this etsy seller has to offer in her online shop. This scarf comes in a bunch of colors that she will custom knit to order. I actually like the color she’s chosen to display it in, most of all.

 President tee by M.I.A., black/white

$85

Opening Ceremony

It’s hard to get away with designing a t-shirt in your own image…but somehow this works. Cool unisex soft tee designed by M.I.A. – also looks good in pink/purple. Fully designed on reverse.

Elizabeth and James Cocoon Shrug

$525

ShopBop.com

I just want to be in this.

Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas

$23.10

Amazon.com

I bought this at the New Museum, it’s a great value for the price, beautiful full-color prints inside, a beautiful body of work.

Red Flame Jumper by Dorothy Perkins

$63

DorothyPerkins.com

This is a great alternative to a typical holiday dress. Reminds me of graphic drawings.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Tickets to see Fela! on Broadway

$55-112

Felaonbroadway.com

I’d love to see this + Questlove of the Roots is a big fan.

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Opening Ceremony – Long Knit Squiggly Gloves

$60

OpeningCeremony.com

I love these, I saw them on the gift guide at Refinery29, which is chock-full of cool things.

Heartbeats by Lady Gaga – High Performance in-ear headphones

$119.95

BeatsByDre.com

Part of the headphone dynasty of Dr. Dre & his mad expensive (and amazing) Beats Studio Headphones, come these cool, lower-priced headphones designed by Lady Gaga. They come in black, chrome, and red – my favorite is the black.

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parliament Classic Funk Mothership UFO A-line Printed Skirt – by Fashion Rocks

$70

Etsy.com

Handmade from a seller on Etsy specializing in printed music photographs onto clothing. I can’t get over that they have a Parliament print!
