10 Stylish Items on Our Editor’s Wish List
And, trust, they’re goooood
Admit it: You’ve been daydreaming about your holiday wish list since, um, September (we feel you). And now with Halloween safely tucked behind us, it’s socially acceptable to whip out the old pen and paper. Finally.
Before you start perusing all the goodies online, glean a little inspiration from Mary Kate McGrath, our seriously stylish Editor in Chief. We picked her brain to discover the top ten pieces she’s really coveting this season, from the chicest ankle boots to the fuzziest mittens we ever did see.
A SHAGGY VEST
Hear me out: New York gets cold. Real, real cold. And this shearling vest would keep me insanely warm. If you amortize the investment, it just makes sense.
IMPRACTICAL ANKLE BOOTS
Suede and fringe and slender heels on the slushy winter sidewalks of NYC? Um, that’s an affirmative. Especially because these beauties come in chic navy and make any cold-weather outfit that much cooler.
A DOUBLE-WRAP WATCH
The honest truth? My iPhone is always within arm’s reach (I know, I know), but I’m using it for a quick Instagram fix or to check the List app, not to look at the time. And as my friends can attest, I'm a tried-and-true timepiece devotee. I’m in love with this one’s pretty leather strap (and it’s a great way to ease the season’s tricky “It” green color into my wardrobe). The double-wrap design and gold-tone face make it really feminine, too.
Tory Burch ($295)
THE WARMEST MITTENS
Texting be damned.
THE NEXT GREAT SERUM
Forgive me while I turn a little “science nerd” on you for a minute: The latest beauty breakthrough is this serum essence, a happy accident discovered in La Mer’s legendary laboratories and captured in this gorgeous bottle. Sea-sourced ingredients mean anti-aging benefits, friends.

A LITTLE BLACK BIKINI
I cannot seem to go two months without a little sand between my toes. I mean, I do, but it?s not a pretty sight. And this two-piece is Curacao-ready with a one-shoulder design and tie-front top.
I’ve been meaning to redo my guestroom lighting with something mid-century modern. These brushed-brass sconces just might do the trick. The swing arm means you can redirect your light for reading (and not disturb a sleepy bedmate).
A FUZZY-BUT-FANCY CHARM
This is totally for my two boys to play with when we’re trapped in some waiting room or when I drag them to the coffee shop on Saturday mornings. OK, maybe it’s a little for me, too, but that monster face? It’s mostly for them.
THE SWEET STUFF
Listen. You can keep your candy canes and pumpkin pies and gingerbread men. The only sugar I need (and want) is a five-pound bag of gummies.
