It feels rather weird to just post a list of things that I want. It's not that I don't like getting presents - I fucking love getting presents - but isn't it kind of strange to just tell a person what you want? I guess it's a convenient arrangement sometimes, since it can be hard to choose a present for someone, especially if it's not someone that you know well, and I know plenty of people that just want to be sure they'll get something they'll actually like, rather than just some body lotion that makes them sneeze and a gift card to Amazon.
But I did sign up for Secret Santa, so Secret Santa buddy, this list is partly for you (although feel free to get me whatever you want, these are just suggestions for if you're stumped), and partly for any of my friends who read this and need some help picking out a gift for me. If anyone else wants to buy me a gift... um, don't do that. That's weird. I definitely didn't get you anything.
Mid-Century Needlepoint Purse
I don't usually go for vintage purses, but sometimes a pretty needlepoint bag seems like just the thing to complete an outfit. This one even has bakelite handles!
Red Rhinestone Dress Clips
I actually have a small collection of dress clips, so anything in that realm would be very welcome. I really like these red rhinestone ones since I've been adding a lot of red to my wardrobe.
Green Floral Scarf
Scarves are an awesome accessory year round, and I think this green, floral print scarf is especially pretty.
Rabbit Print Lunch Bag
I could really use a cute lunch bag instead of just throwing my stuff into a grocery bag.
Turquoise Insect Brooch
Guys. Guys. Guys. Oh my god. Guys. This is cute.
Sugar Lip Polish
I would never, ever buy something like this for myself, but as the queen of flaky, chapped lips, I'd actually love to have this.
Am I the only one who feels weird about the concept of a wishlist? I don't remember making them when I was a kid (no, "Dear Santa" for me), so maybe that has something to do with it.
