My Christmas Wishlist for 2011

This isn't new, really. I've posted it on my Facebook and I might just alter it a little bit since it's for a different setting (for the lack of a better term). I just find it appropriate to talk about something in regards of the holidays sooner than later. Now's the perfect time.

A couple of months back (just a month ago, really) I decided to compile my annual Christmas wishlist composed of random material things and not. On most times I really have a hard time looking for things that would really tickle my interest but I get the job done anyway, so it's all good!

So, shall we start? Okay, let me begin with the random material things that have been making me somewhat drool.

The first things I should definitely start piling in my closet are dresses.

Structured sleeve skater dress

Tuck shift dress

Crossover dress by LOVE

Lace sleeve dress

Ditsy contrast collar dress

Angle sleeve dress.

These are all from Topshop. While,

This fold over geo dress is from Forever 21 (it's on sale by the way).

In case you'd like to send me a couple of these items, in Topshop, I'm a size 8. Easily a medium everywhere else. For asian brands, I'm a large since our sizes here are somehow smaller than the European / American ones.

On to the outer wears!

A Gryffindor jacket from Hot Topic.

Double-knit blazer with heart patch

Letterman jacket

Peace dove open cardigan. All from Forever 21 as well.
While this Four Year Strong jacket is available.. Well honestly I have no idea. But I'm pretty sure these babies are available from their website.

That would be it for the jackets. Now for the tops.

Day of the dead tank top.

Blood is the New Black metal bears distressed tank top, both from Urban Outfitters. It sucks how expensive their stuff are. I swear.
I've also got a thing for band merch.

So I've included this Pierce the Veil raglan tee

And this Pierce the Veil heather gray tee

And a bunch of their other stuff like SD tank tops and stuff like that.

These Pierce the Veil shorts are absolutely adorable. I'd totally wear them out.

I've recently realized that my favorite skinny jeans are missing. I forgot where I last left them. I'm pretty sure they're at my dad's place though but I haven't really gotten the chance to just raid the closets for it. So I just decided to include jeans to my wishlist.

Classic skinny jeans

Essential skinny jeans
Both from Forever 21. You might have noticed that I included quite a number of clothes that are from Forever 21. It's because, first and foremost: they're not that expensive. And secondly, there's basically a Forever 21 anywhere in the world. I'm a size 30. Shut up, I gained weight.

And now, for my ultimate favorite. I never really considered myself as a shoe collector but with the number of footwear I currently own, it's not hard to classify myself as one.

Vans Authentics in royal blue. Also in black, red and orange. Recently I've been loving everything with bright colors just to steer clear from a little bit of black. But the next things I'm about to post is going to contradict what I just said but what the hell.

Keds hi-top Champions in black.

Cooperative suede oxford wedge from Urban Outfitters. They look extremely sturdy and comfortable. Like I can wear them on a regular day and not worry how much they're going to hurt my feet but I'm most positive that they won't. There's a similar pair from Aldo. I'm going to have to save up for those. Aldo isn't exactly the cheapest there is.

Brown oxfords just because.

Minnetonka moccasins. I think this is a closet (or shoe rack) staple.

Ecote leather criss cross lace up boots from Urban Outfitters. Again, too expensive.

T-strap floral flats from Ichigo. Cheapest footwear on my wishlist.
I'm usually a size 7.5 (US Women's). Sometimes 8. Obviously bigger for Asian footwear. I'm a 9 for those.

I also decided to add a couple of accessories to my list!

Ecote around the world backpack from UO. They're so cute!

Cat eye sunnies from Urban Outfitters. I'm still trying to find a compensation for this. I'm currently using the one from my friend - I sort of switched sunnies with her. She has my flat-topped pair of tortoise sun glasses.

Free spirit leatherette necklace from Forever 21.

Harry Potter silly bandz! Don't ask.

That would be it for the accessories. On to other material things!

An iPhone 4. I would have posted a picture of the iPhone 4s but it wasn't existing at the time I made this list.

A room make over I've been bugging my mother for already a year, I think. White walls and Christmas lights. I'd like it to be a little bit messier than this of course.

A MacBook Pro and a new dog.

I also decided on putting up stuff that cannot be represented through photos but I still tried. These things are bigger than the rest of my wishlist but I still think that having some of those material things wouldn't hurt. Anyway, the next few stuff I'll be posting will also include some feelings as I explain. Hmm. Ready?

What's written is pretty much self-explanatory. Although I would like to expound. Most of you must be aware that I've always wanted to leave the Philippines. I can't remember when this want blossomed but I'm pretty solid on my thoughts. My mom approves, my dad approves. Now, the only problem I have are the visas, fares and stuff like that. I've decided on a couple of countries already but I'll decide later on really where I want to be. Once I graduate from my Fine Arts course, I'd like to pursue art history. I'm still not sure whether I want a masteral or a second degree. Either would definitely look good on my credentials.

Another thing I've been setting my hopes on was going to Vans Warped Tour. Photography has been one of my passions since I was in high school - back then it wasn't as overrated as it is today. Just admit it. I've been really hooked on event photography. I like taking pictures of musicians and random people. Never really a fan of the studio and a set, honestly. I just want everything to be spontaneous. It would also be a great thing since music has got to be the one thing I love next to my family and friends. I can never live a day without it - it's a part of who I am.

And last but not the least. This has got to be the cheesiest thing on my wishlist ever. True love. Overrated but I couldn't help myself. I'm just a girl after all. I know I wouldn't find it here. I don't know how, but I just do.

So that's it, folks. Oh and another thing that I really want is to finally get that (tattoo) sleeve I've been itching to get for more than a month now. I have the design and all so hopefully it wouldn't be too hard to fulfill.

Phew! This is one long blog post. Longest I've ever made, perhaps? If not then whatever. Who cares right? If you have nothing better to do maybe you should take some time and think of the things you really want. Christmas is not always about the material things in life. As you can see, I ended this wishlist not with those, but things that I know are irreplaceable - things that nobody can ever take away from me. Well okay, maybe some people can but a girl can only hope.
