Wish of the Moment: The Man With The Bag
It's officially December and it's high time to break out those knits! They're perfect for the inclement weather plus they remind me of good ole family gatherings. Need inspiration for knits? Just look at Prada, Michael Kors, Missoni, Reed Krakoff (my current favorite) and Rodarte. And if you feel brazen, ask the Big Man for those looks yourself!
Time to break out those knits!
Speaking of Santa, this song "The Man With The Bag" is my current Christmas theme. I'm just hoping I get to be the man with a new schoolbag by next year. Nevertheless, I am going forward with my narrowed down wish list:
1. Multi-purpose Bag - I'm really liking Alexander Wang's Rocco duffle, now with a shoulder strap. I saw it in Barneys New York CO-OP one time and it looks so nice. I want one in the blackest black!
2. Coat - Brown, camel, beige, nude and any shade in between are the IT colors for Fall-Winter 2010. I want in too, that is, until the new year comes. Maison Martin Margiela's coat looks very warm indeed, but it's gonna break the bank.
3. Snood - This has got to be the all time accessory for cold climate because it'll be useful no matter what. An added bonus is there's no need to wrap it around your neck! Burberry's snood still got my eye.
4. Dazed and Confused - Their December issue features electro/dance powerhouse Daft Punk! FASO or the Filipino American Symphony Orchestra is included in the spread too. Definitely more than one reason to buy.
Do you think I missed anything? Well, if you find yourself jolly generous this holiday, don't forget about me! Though, I'm sure I'll get the magazine soon.
