crushed/crushing: “all about me” edition

So my birthday AND Hanukah both fall out in December – making this month all about me, of course.

Here’s my list of recent fave purchases, along with some items I would love to receive (maybe you would too?)!

Crushed: I’m a wee bit obsessed with scarves, which I blame completely on my scarf-obsessed daughter. I’ve amassed quite the collection, but my hands-down favorite (and the one I get the most compliments on by far) is this one:

lil fox shoppe scarf

It’s from Lil Fox Shoppe and it’s ENORMOUS (8 feet!) – which is exactly what I was looking for. Hand knit, beautifully packaged and a great price for the size, material and quality.

Crushing: I whizzed past Pip-Squeak Chapeau at Renegade Craft Fair last month, but made a mental note to check them out, pronto. I love the mix of luxe materials executed in the most effortless-looking pieces. Very French, I think. I pretty much want everything on the site but am seriously crushing on this shirt:

Crushed: I’ve had the same watch for years – a chunky men’s metal number – and it was time (sorry) for a change. I still love a large-ish watch, and prefer men’s styles to women’s, but I wanted something more streamlined. I saw this beauty from Daniel Wellington on Hey Natalie Jean’s Instagram feed, and used her discount code (HOLIDAY_HEYNATALIEJEAN) to order!

Crushing: As I’ve shared, my taste in jewelry runs from minimal to – well, nothing at all. So a simple metal cuff is just my thing. Like these bracelets by Coordinates:

coordinates collection

The clean design incorporates coordinates of your choosing – perfect if you don’t want to go all Angelina on yourself. You could commemorate your birthplace (or that of a loved one), where you got married/engaged/had your first kiss – the possibilities are as endless as they are personal. Onyx & Blush has them, along with about a bajillion other well-priced, unique pieces (you know, if you’re like most normal females who love jewelry….).

Crushed: I know, another bag – but I’ve had my eye on FEED bags for a while now, and what better time than the holidays to make a purchase that also does so much good?

feed number 2 bag

FEED’s mission is to create quality products that help feed the world. A set donation is built into the cost of each product, whose impact is signified by a stenciled number. This bag will provide two children with school meals for one year.

Crushing: Still cursing Ellen for ever introducing me to Forestbound. Oh, do I want one of these bags. Forestbound uses exclusively found and salvaged textiles to create a line of durable, utilitarian tote bags that are like nothing I’ve ever seen. Take this one, for example (sadly, sold out):

forestbound wwii era bag

Worn-in canvas salvaged from a WWII era US military duffel bag has been reworked into a perfect carryall. Printing from the original canvas has been incorporated into the tote, and the variation of color of the fabric is the result of 70+ years of natural wear and aging.

So. Much. Awesomeness.

What’s on your wish list this year?

    Extra long cozy scarf? Want! Seriously, when that pic of Lenny Kravitz made the rounds and people were laughing I was secretly coveting.
