Normally, by this time of year, there are a million things I want. Sale season is in full swing, my trigger finger is itchy in anticipation of second markdowns, everything on the shopping front is grand. This year, despite the fact that I love a lot of what’s going on in fashion right now, my Christmas Wish List (and birthday wish list, since it’s Christmas Eve) is kind of limited.
I don’t know if that’s a sign of maturity (unlikely!) or just an indicator that I’ve gotten better at deciphering my own ever-narrowing taste, but the list of things I’d like to receive this year is rather short. In fact, it’s actually shorter than what I’ve presented here, because I got impatient and already bought the Shinola watch. Self-denial has never been one of my talents.
