What to Shop for in December, According to our Editor

December is the best month of the year. Hands down. I love everything about it—everyone's relaxed, it's OK to drink wine every day of the week, and there are more than enough excuses to get all dolled up. Fun. I even love the Christmas beetles! 

What's even better, is you can shop for yourself and excuse it as your present-to-self. It's been a big year. You deserve it. For the last month of the year (and on the first day of summer), I'm treating myself with pieces I'll wear during the end of year break. The perfect affordable beach bag, the coolest party dress I've ever seen, and the earrings I didn't know I'd been searching for my whole life.

UNDER $100

I'm deeply obsessed with anything that looks like it came out of a Dolce & Gabbana campaign.

I love a good beach adventure, so I need an easy tote I can throw all my essentials into.

I'm obsessed with tie-front tops at the moment, and need a pastel pink to add to my collection.

UNDER $500

My SO is into fashion, but he's into me saving my money even more, so you can imagine my delight when we walked past Bassike in Balmain the other day and he stopped and said I needed this shirt. Any excuse will do! 

These might just be the coolest earrings I've seen all year.

I need a pair of comfy shoes that I can wear from the minute I wake up until I fall into bed. These are dressy enough to cover any occasion. 

UNDER $2000

I've been living in slip dresses this summer, so it's time to turn up the heat for the end of year Christmas parties. Plus, Attico is all I care about RN.

I love the crinkled fabric of this maxi skirt and the long slit down the side. I can imagine wearing it with a silk cami, or a T-shirt and blazer for the office.

I've been obsessed with these mules for longer than I care to admit. These are my Christmas present to self.
