Blogger High-5, Holiday Edition: Nicolette Mason's Cheeky-Chic Wish List

When it comes to getting dressed, we're all about the little things. Embellishments, glittery finishes — it's those shiny bits that take outfits up a thousand notches. And if anyone has mastered how to seamlessly lob together gilded cockroach necklaces with fur vests and platform heels, it's Nicolette Mason. The writer, style setter, and contributing Marie Claire editor excels at effortless femininity, which is why we've become nonstop obsessed over Mason's fanciful taste. Add to it a dream closet filled with Miu Miu's glittery best, as much adoration for Chris Benz's fried-egg top as we have, and her poetic writing and dreamy wish lists have reeled us in to her namesake blog — and left us wanting more, more, more.
We simply had to find out her must-haves for this holiday season, and thankfully, she let us in on her favorite wants and wishes for winter. From the cheeky purse she's pined after for years to the bold baubles that'll gussy up any ol' dress, this fashion blogger's chic picks are rife with fun, kitschy details — setting her apart from the rest. Have a spin around her party of a blog, but first, take a look at what Mason's crossing her (well-tipped!) fingers for this holiday season.

"I'm a bit of a fragrance junkie, and virtually always have a candle burning when I'm home (which is often, since I'm a freelancer!). Diptyque candles are among my absolute favorites, and once they're all burned, the jars make chic storage for makeup brushes or pens!"

"I'm an unabashed lover of a tent dress (albeit, with a belt at the waist!), and the hanky silhouette from DVF is one of my wardrobe staples. I love this whimsical cloud print! It would be perfect to wear during my upcoming trip to Thailand and will be on the mark next spring and summer, too. Of note: This dress is basically one size fits all."

"Yes, I'm a magpie! This Jenna Lyons-approved necklace is stealing my heart. I'm a sucker for jewelry with emerald, green, and blue tones — because it complements my (totally artificial) red hair really well."

For every curveball you might encounter at the office or after hours, make sure you have your glamour-girl essentials alongside you in a pretty, little package — like this city-savvy, crossbody baby.

"Like most Millennials, I'm a slave to my iPhone — but nothing beats paper and pen when it comes to planners! I've been a devotee to Kate Spade's planners for over a decade, and they make great gifts for friends, too!"

"The Lulu Guinness lips clutch has been on my wish list for a few years now. While it's yet to make its way into my wardrobe, I think it's utterly iconic, and something I'll use forever."
