the lux list

wow–where did november go?! ill spare you the summary of turkey day and skip right over to one of my least favorite upcoming holidays. call me scrooge, but christmas (especially the decorating and subsequent clean up) and stress of present buying, combined with unseasonably warm weather in nyc, has me feeling very bah humbug. as an attempt to get in the spirit , ive rounded up a few of my dream Christmas gifts. while the price tags on these babies is not for the faint of heart, consider this list my equivalent of the NM gift book–anything goes! 7 lux gifts worthy of lasting a lifetime…

#1 hermes scarf– while im not the biggest silk scarf wearer, these always look so classy and are great to collect (and if you don’t feel like wearing it, take a page from this smart cookie and turn them into a piece of art)   hermes scarf

#2 burberry trench– inspired by my favorite little Burberry-clad Brit LKH. yes the idea of writing a $2,000 check for a raincoat makes me slightly sick, but you know you’d wear the heck out of it. and the nova check will always be timeless.

#3 cartier love bracelet– the perfect gift for the hopeless romantic. what could be better than unbreakable love, cartier and 18k gold?? yaaaaaas please.

#4 elegant evening bag– evening bags are one place i don’t typically spend a lot of money (particularly because they don’t get a lot of use) but a special bag can take your LBD up a notch season after season. the neutral suede paired with gold on this sleek maiyet one is dreamy perfection.

#5 red chanel flats- although these would be perfect for the holiday season, i love the idea of red flats for a pop of color all year round. I loved the way Caitlin wore them here

#6 a great piece of art- one of the most special things my mom has taught me is the value of investing in great art. unlike clothes, you look at your surroundings every day, so we think art is one area worth truly splurging on. some of my favorite artists id love to own are sally king benedict, kate long stevenson, karin olah, and teil duncan
