Last night was the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and I really thought it was a success. With performances from Nicki Minaj, Kanye, Jay-Z and Maroon 5, the energy was high and the outfits were extremely creative. I particularly loved the New Orleans Burlesque and Indian inspired outfits.
Since I didn’t do a wishlist yesterday, I think I’ll take today to discuss my top five holiday wishlist items (for now). Enjoy!!

I’m not sure how many of you watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show …but ever since I was in college my best friends and I would gather around the television at this time every year and watch the show. The outfits, the stage design, the music and the musical performances are all so spectacular that you don’t wanna miss out. The glitz, the glamour and the headpieces alone are some of the best fashion statements of the year.
Everyone has their favorite VS models-mine are definitely Bahati Prinsloo (for her name alone and her exoticism), and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for her classic beauty. Everyone enjoy the show tonight! Who’s your favorite VS supermodel?

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Mine was filled with visiting my family in Queens, some fabulous black Friday shopping (thank you Lord and Taylor) and seeing friends over the weekend. It’s always great to have a reunion at home with high school friends when everyone is home for the holidays.
Getting back into the swing of Monday is made a lot easier with cyber monday deals. I just picked out my holiday present (see photo below) from Alex courtesy of the fabulous sales Rebecca MInkoff is having on its website. (would you expect me to choose anything else?). Now for picking out presents for everyone else-including my parents. I think I have something great selected, but can’t share it here since my mom reads my blog.
Tomorrow’s post will be a huge holiday wishlist so stay tuned!
Finally made it to NYC after 6 hours of driving starting at 7 a.m. It’s good to be home. I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday with friends and family. xoxo
Happy Monday guys! Apologies for no post on Friday, but I was super busy putting together our very first holiday party at our apartment. Our law school’s holiday party was later on Friday evening, so we had friends over ahead of time to celebrate. I spent hours decorating the apartment with holiday lights, pine tree and apple cider candles, fake snow, pine tree centerpieces and glitter pine cones (all thanks to Pottery Barn). Apple cider and rum drinks plus a ton of beautiful desserts (made by my friend Michele) and Hors d’oeuvres completed the night.
I also spent entirely too much time and money at H&M yesterday. Although the Versace line didn’t come to Portland, there was still plenty of goodies ranging from H&M’s velvet panel leggings, feux leather pants, long tunic sweaters, holiday dresses and capes. I think I’m done shopping for a while…at least until Urban Outfitters makes it’s debut in Portland in a few months.
