Our Holiday WishlistNovember 15, 2019
Here’s a beautiful round-up of what we’re wearing, gifting and hoping to find in our stocking this holiday season. There’s something for everyone on your list (including you).
“For my nephew’s wife I’m planning on wrapping up the Printed All Leather Tippi Tote,” says Theresa McAllen our VP of Design. “They are hand made by artisans in Florence who have been crafting bags for generations. She loves a statement bag and this one is gorgeous.”
“I want to give every member of my family one of our Pima cotton pajama sets,” says Theresa. “All the prints are exclusive Johnny Was designs and, seriously, they are the coziest PJs I have ever slept in.”
“Our cozy blankets are the perfect gift and also so great to have in your home during winter,” says Amy Valentine, Design Director. “It comes in a cool carry bag so you don’t even need to gift wrap, just add a bow.”
“I always give out our silk scarves because everyone loves them,” says Biya Ramar, VP of Design. “I currently love the Bethia design but each one is beautiful and we really take time to make sure they’re all unique. Knot one around your neck, your hair or on the handle of your purse.”
“The Hazel Long Kimono is truly a stand out piece with its patchwork of silk prints and embroidered trim,” says Biya. “Great for holiday parties topping your outfit, and anyone who receives this as a gift will be ecstatic.”
“For the very lucky lady in your life, in my case, my mama—the Embroidered Tippi Tote,” says Senior Designer Lola Wydler. “She wears a lot of black so this is the perfect way to spice up her look--the embroidery is stunning and the leather is dreamy. Mamas deserve special gifts!”
“The Alison Smoking Jacket is something I want in my closet and have added to my wish list,” laughs Oranda Del Olmo, Senior Designer. “I’d wear it over a vintage band tee or with a cute dress for date night.”
“For my best friend I’m wrapping up the Castor Maxi Dress,” says Christy Whitley, VP of Design. “I had shown her a picture when I designed it and she absolutely loved it—perfect to wear on New Year’s Eve.”
“I’m giving the Calisto Embroidered Hoodie to my sister,” says Oranda. “It’s warm and fuzzy which is the same way I feel about her!”
“I love the colors and the print on the Fe Ruffle Button Shirt so that’s an easy one to give to my favorite cousin,” says Christy. “The pattern feels festive and vibrant, but it would be great all year round.”
