Every year once I’m finished with my holiday shopping I create my Christmas wish list to make it easier on my friends and family. I’m hard to shop for because I like specific labels and particular pieces. As I was working on A Girl in LA’s annual gift guides, I came across so many things I fell in love with. From clothing, to jewelry, to items for my apartment. These are the top 20 gifts I’m asking for this Christmas.
Another trend I’m loving are track pants. I almost wish I didn’t get rid of mine from years ago. I like how these are tailored so they can be dressed up and worn with stilettos rather than look like a gym pant.
I could never have enough concert tees; my closet is filled with them. I pair them with denim shorts, faux leather pants, or if they’re long enough, I’ll wear them as a dress with thigh-high boots. This Madeworn, Rolling Stones tee would be an ideal addition to my wardrobe. I’m a huge fan of the rock n roll band, and I love the colorful logo and the deconstruction of this tee!
I’m a pescatarian (I can’t give up sushi), but I love cooking vegan dishes. There are over 100 recipes in this cookbook and everything can be prepared in 15 minutes. It would be useful when I get back from the gym at night and I don’t feel like making a meal from scratch.
Lately, I’ve been longing for a pair of wide leg pants. I love the multicolored stripes, the unique waistline, and the cuffs on the bottom of them. They could be dressed up with heels and a bodysuit, or dressed down with sandals and a cami for a day at the coast.
This Opening Ceremony hoodie is what I want the most this year. I plan on styling it with leggings, or with thigh-high boots. It‘s just a basic sweatshirt, but the logo makes it a statement piece. I recently purchased the Corduroy Varsity Jacket and I’ve become obsessed with the label ever since.
I’ve lost count of the number of deconstructed jeans I own; skinny, boyfriend and various colors. Deconstructed indigo is the one denim style not in my closet so these would be a perfect addition to my collection.
I’ve been so busy this year, I’ve been neglecting both my personal and A Girl in LA’s Instagram accounts. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is start to creating content more frequently. Styling for Instagram is by the Conde Nast photographer Leela Cyd, and features layout inspiration and advice—it would give me the motivation I need to get back into the Insta game.
During the winter when it gets dark early, there’s nothing like opening a book, lighting a candle, and getting lost in the story. This past year I have had little time to read, so I’m making one of my New Year’s resolutions to get back into it. I’m hoping this candle will inspire me to do so.
I’m really into “Y” necklaces right now, and this elegant lariat chain is so beautiful. The glass crystals and the star make it the optimal statement piece. It would look excellent styled with a solid shirt to add some sparkle.
I have so many pairs of black skinny jeans but I love the hook-and-eye closures on these, which gives them a punk vibe. Also, my favorite pair of jeans are by Pistola so I’m confident these would be a perfect fit.
This is the cutest brush I’ve ever seen! Instead of using it to apply foundation, I‘d love to display it with my cosmetics. It‘s too adorable to get makeup all over it.
