The Tyranny of the Christmas Wish List

Look, I like some expensive products. It's because I have extraordinarily good taste! Mmm, do I ever. But the Christmas wish list stories everywhere are driving me crazy, because the stuff on them is pricey garbage. Here's a contribution from W Accessories Director Brooke Magnaghi!

You know, I told my co-workers that people will pay thousands of dollars for a bag. They refused to believe me.

In other news, I am "posting comments too quickly"? What gives, WordPress?

Fanwy, don't take the "posting comments too quickly" personally. It is directed against me alone. The bitches.

SORRIE! Cho is working on it.

Oh thank goodness. Now stop breaking The Awl!

Oh, here I was blaming myself, when it's actually THE SYSTEM.

Magazine subscriptions are the gifts that keep on giving.

Also, half my Chrismukkah wish list consists of clothing from L.L Bean or J. Crew – practical, quality gifts trump all in my book.

Booze is always practical and quality.

That New England common sense!!

HiredGoons (#603)

Booze, yes. That too.

We're doing most of our giving to charity this year, but it's still pernicious. I had to stick up three Saks to buy gifts for my Adopt-A-Family at Tiffany.

I want world peace.
And jobs.
And health care.

I also want a cat who won't climb up our Christmas tree and knock off all the decorations all day long.

GOOD LUCK. Fucking cats.

hockeymom (#143)

No kidding. We've had years of smart, independent cats. This one is cute and stupid, stupid, stupid. The concept of snow has completely undone her.

Our cats were supposed to pull the sleigh, but they're on strike.

my kittens are to busy EATING PEOPLE'S PHONES to bother with the christmas tree.
(i lie. i haven't even put the tree up yet. i'm sure the kittens will be shitting glitter for a month.)

I thought the headline read "The Tranny of the Christmas Wish List" and was quite disappointed when I clicked through…

What's up with the fuggo pave shit this holiday?

Also, THIS.

Jeremy Scott = emps new clothes. Lanvin has no excuse.

The New Yorker had a pleasant article with plenty of affordable and delightful items like squirrel underpants ( They included a few outrageously expensive items, but they seemed to mainly be there to "tut, tut" or chuckle at.

Why does my Christmas Wish List always look like my shopping list for the liquor store?

Because you, too, are practical and quality!

hockeymom (#143)

I go for quantity, actually.

[x] naughty
[x] nice

Who needs a shopping list for the liquor store?

myfanwy (#1,124)

Us leftards, apparently.

HiredGoons (#603)

Seriously, it's called 'one of each, please.'
