It’s about that time of year, and ’tis the season for giving (and receiving, yay)! Although this year I’m resigned–no, determined!–not to receive any gifts from my family–my generous parents are discovering just how expensive a wedding is–but that doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream, right?

And dreaming is definitely the idea, here, as some of these wishlist items of mine are out-of-this-world expensive. But that’s alright. I like to have a running tab of items I’d like to own one day, in case I come across a huge cash windfall. Hey, it could happen.

  • Hi kristina, your parents ARE amazing! I follow your mom’s blog and i love her. ;)Your list is out of this works amazing, I love the glasses! They’re on my list too…

    Milena

    • Aw, thank you Milena! My mom will be so glad to hear that. 🙂

  • I am loving those J Crew bracelets! I remember telling my parents not to buy any Christmas gifts for me before my wedding in March 2007 – they were paying for my wedding. But of course they did anyway, because they didn’t want to leave that out. So funny how parents are 😉

  • I love that starfish necklace!

    • Isn’t it the cutest?? I’d wear it layered with the tiffany beads necklace. Or alone. It’s just so cute.

  • I have the tiffany bead in a bracelet. It’s so surprising…you see pearls but they are silver. Love!

    • That’s exactly why I love it, too! It’s just as professional but more modern than pearls. Love it. I would wear it layered with the starfish pendant, if I had both.

  • love those glasses! my sister actually got the bracelet version of the bead necklace from tiffany’s (i did a post about it: http://www.the-beautiful-things.com/2011/11/16/things-i-learned-please-return-to-tiffany-co/)…sigh, my tiffany wish-list is too long to even start!

  • That J Crew coat is FAB. Perfect for today in Houston! So cold, right?

    • Tell me about it! It is super chilly today in H-town! Brrr!

  • The J.Crew coat is something I wish for as well, though this year my holiday wishlist contains only adventures, and my parent will buy the tickets for them.:)

    • Well that sounds super exciting Niki! I’m super jealous!

  • I agree with you completly my amazon wish list has items no one would ever be able to acceptably afford to buy me but I too like to dream and maybe one day I can get a killer camera like that !!!! great pics!! so very Kristina! What do you plan to get your fiance for x-mas?

    • I’m working on that very dilemma right this very moment. He can be so easy to shop for but at the same time so very hard! I’m big on surprises so I don’t like to get his input too much, but I’m thinking this year I’ll have to.
      I, on the other hand, am not big on surprises when it comes to gifts (too many bad experiences lol) so I regularly wishlist.

  • I’m right there with you on the lens!

    • Talk about drool. It’s #1 on my wishlist in my head. Someday, someday.

  • Lovely list. I love the starfish pedant. Do pop over and enter our Giveaway; something sparkly also that you may like 😉

  • The starfish necklace, the bracelet, the trench coat, and of course, the camera and the lens- they’re all on my wishlist now, too 🙂

    • Yay! Glad to hear it Lauren. 🙂 Great minds think alike. 🙂

  • I have been giving to myself so much this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. A little depressed from all the shopping. But I’m going to say it’s all in the name of Fashion!
    I am in love with that J. Crew coat. I had it in my shopping cart but had to put it back. I just don’t need another coat right now.

  • Amy

    Nice wish list! I’m the same, I love to keep a running tab of items that I can only dream of owning some day. I especially like the retro look of that camera, very cool 🙂

  • that canon lens looks uber sexy … =) btw when is the date? It’s been so long since we’ve had a heart to heart, I miss you girly!! =(

  • This looks very similar to my wishlist 🙂 I am dying for that Canon lens…did you know there is a similar Tamron one that is comparable in quality and half the price?!

    • I’ve heard Tamron is comparable but…I’m just such a loyalist to Canon. I’m a label-whore when it comes to certain things, and I feel like I’m cheapening myself when I don’t get the real deal. Silly, I know, since I buy things that are off-brand all the time, every day, but…I’m just weird about certain things. LOL

  • love this!
    ps: super cute blog, girl. keep it up! 🙂

    love, rach.
