…. is yoooouuuu.” Thus, the immortal words of that most generous spirited songstress, Mariah Carey. What the song doesn’t continue to say is that Mariah is a multi-millionaire pop star, who already has everything she could ever possibly need or want, so of course all she wants for christmas is a delicious hunk wrapped up in a big bow.
For those of us with less pop star kudos and therefore less in the way of freebies from international designers, Christmas wish lists tend to have a more materialistic slant. I certainly wouldn’t say no to Mariah’s hunk wrapped up in a big bow (although ‘the man’ may have something to say about it…) but I would be extra happy if he was laden with gifts from Austique too!
So, in a shameless show of Christmas-time materialism, here is all I really want for Christmas from the best of Austique’s Christmas gift collection:
I’ll start at the very beginning; it’s a very good place to start, or so the Von Trapp family singers would have us believe! Starting small, I would dearly like a Seda France Candle in Rhubarb. These heavenly scents have been wafting down the halls of Austique HQ for weeks now and I think I’m addicted.
To go with my collection of Madeleine Thompson beanies, a Madeleine Thompson Chunky Knit Scarf.
If there’s one thing that’s a safe bet at Austique HQ, it’s that an Austique girl can never have enough bling. And I have a particularly Magpie-esque eye. So the Austique Diamond Initial Pendant would earn extra brownie points!
I’ve had my eye on these stunning python-skin pumps since they arrived last week and am hoping that if I’m a very good girl, santa may just see fit to pop them under the tree for me…
Finally, what I really really have my fingers and toes crossed for and what I really hope I’ll get is the Treesje Asher Handbage in Cognac. I have become addicted to Treesje bags over the years; they’re beautifully made, last forever and are always followed down the street by wistful stares from other fashion-savvy ladies. So if there are any Prince Charmings out there, looking to win Austiquegirl’s heart this Christmas, you now hold key!
