Cotton Canvas Window Panel — "I get that curtains aren't a super-sexy gift, but my apartment is in need of something to cover the Venetian blinds it came with, which I've been living with for a year now. And I love the weight of these, particularly for the winter."
$24 each, available at West Elm
Metallic Shoes — "I wear flats. Pretty much all the time (okay, all the time, except for black-tie gatherings). So, I like my shoes to be festive and fun — by way of shine and sparkle! I'm drawn to these metallic lace-ups like a magpie, and I see them working with pretty much every piece is my oh-so-neutral closet."
$61.57, available at ASOS
Beadnell Jacket — "I need a new Barbour jacket, because mine is very old and starting to fray. I had thought I'd want to upgrade with one of the options from the Paul Smith collab, but really, it's the classic jacket that has my heart."
$369, available at North River
Original Wayfarer — "Another no-brainer classic, but we're having a very sunny, global-warming-y winter this year, and I need a new pair of sunnies to get through it. I borrowed my brother's Ray-Bans recently, and was reminded of how much I love this reliable, so-flattering shape. Since stealing his would have felt wrong, I'm making this not-so-subtle request for them, here."
$200, available at Ray-Ban
