Holiday Gift Guide: Melissa's Investment Pieces
Posted by Melissa Colgan
While I love receiving little somethings I didn't know I wanted during the holiday season, sometimes it's best to be practical and ask for pieces you want, need, and have had your eye on for months. Your most prized possessions can become so worn when living in New York City—I have the thrashed ballet flats and distressed totes to prove it!—and so I always like to ask my family members for stylish pieces I know I will wear to death. Check out the practical presents (and ultimate pipe dreams!) I'll be sticking on my wish list this season.
1 I am constantly freezing at my desk. This oversized tartan wool wrap would certainly keep in the heat. ($275, annmashburn.com)
2 I need a new everyday work tote. This one by Rib & Hull is simple and chic. And the color is so versatile. ($285, ribandhull.com)
3 I am obsessed with my Equipment silk pajamas and would love a suitable sub for when they are at the cleaners. I love their menswear style and the comfy fit of the drawstring pants. Plus, they are unbelievable soft and chic enough to laze around my apartment in. ($408, equipmentfr.com)
4 I can't get enough of Chloe ballet flats and I've been coveting this pair for months! ($485, Saks Fifth Avenue)
5 Mid-Victorian era earrings from A La Vieille Ruisse—hey, a girl can dream! (alvr.com)
