Sorry, Santa: Gift Yourself With Chic, Cheeky Baubles At This Trunk Show

Here's the thing about making a holiday wish list — it's a bit of a gamble, right? You might drop enough oh-so-subtle hints that someone will get you that gorgeous goody you really want ... but then again, things might not go according to present-acquiring plan. Which is why we say: If you find something you just can't live without, it's okay to take matters into your own hands. You'll have just such an opportunity starting today and going through the weekend, during the Monserat de Lucca trunk show at M29 Lifestyle. The L.A.-based accessories line sets up shop for three days to showcase their wonderful-and-weird — but seriously stylish — collection of brass jewelry. And because it's Friday and we're feeling extra cheery, we've picked out our dream pieces, as well as a few that will, um, spark a conversation, to say the least.
When: Today, December 9, and Saturday, December 10, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, December 11, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: M29 Lifestyle Boutique, 2800 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (corner of 29th Street NW and M Street NW); 202-295-2829.
