Friday Favorites: Luxe Gift Guide

Santa granted me one pre-Christmas wish this morn--I was finally able to install Firefox on our decrepit home computer, which means I get catch up on what's been a sad blogging week.
You see, in addition to my (work) computer just not turning on, BF then went ahead and infected me with whatever weird sickness he was suffering through last week. I'm sure it doesn't help that I was gloating mercilessly--you see, I'm usually the sicky one around here. Fate strikes again, I suppose. I woke up this morning fearing the plague. It feels like a cat is sitting on my neck. The fat cat. (Er, fatter of the two.)

But hey! Early Christmas break for me, right?

In case you still haven't found that special gift for someone, and now you are feeling really guilty (cause hey, nothing says love like waiting until the last minute), here is the Friday Favorites Luxe Gift Guide. Even if they aren't worth it, maybe alleviating your conscience is?

Clemence Ring by Wendy Brandes, $3600

Erickson Beamon Suffragette City With Crystal Tassel Necklace, $1225
(This is supposedly a very trendy new brand, mentioned on my extremely guilty pleasure Gossip Girl a couple of episodes back. The jewelry is okay, as far as I can see, but no Wendy Brandes.)

Mark Davis Turquoise Irene Bangle, $950 (a couple of these stacked...lovely)

Shaesby Graduated Bubble Chain with Large Moonstone Pendant, $2145

Academie Oval 1 Earrings Turquoise by Phillip Crangi, $388

H.Stern Highlight Amethyst Ring, $5800

I hope you all get exactly what wished for, and a couple of things you didn't even realize you wanted...
See you on Wednesday---Happy Holidays, Bloggers!
