Just because we love it!

The holidays are long gone. And now that all the gifts have been opened, it is time to get what you really want. No need to wait, hoping that your loved ones actually paid attention to your wish list. Especially the section that said: NO PLAID FLANNEL SHIRT!!! I have not yet heard of a person with an actual do-not-wish-list but you might want to consider it for next year. Just so there is no misunderstanding, allow me to add a disclaimer to this post: The items featured here do not represent the gifts I wish I would have received for Christmas. They are merely items that I find appealing and wish to share with the world. My family and friends know me well and are very good at selecting gifts for me. And for this I love them dearly. End of disclaimer. Varina glam ballet flat by Salvatore Ferragamo. $490 This is the perfect ballet flats for a dressy night out. I love heels but this little number is just as chic!
Flip Mino camcorder. $200
This camcorder was designed by Courtney Cox and David Arquette and five percent of its proceeds go to Feeding America, a network of food banks.
Miss Vara poncho hobo by Salvatore Ferragamo. $1, 590 This is the perfect size bag for everyday strolling around town in style. We love the gathered detail and gold hardware. Tres fab!
Cotton tank top by Guess. $26
The price is not the only good thing about this item. In fact, the proceeds benefit Invisible Children, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the war in Uganda, Africa. This makes this item doubly lovable. Tweed and patent leather clutch with acrylic stones by Marc Jacobs. $995 The marriage of textures found on this clutch brings added interest and dimension to any outfit. Perfect for brunch and dinner with the girls.
Love, Kelie
P.S.: Before I go, here's an idea: in the weeks leading up to the holidays try talking about the things you need and want. Not forcefully but casually, slipping them into conversations. Emphasize on how happy they would make you but that for the moment you unfortunately can't afford them and see what happens. It is definitely worth the try!

Just a thought...
