Who is Anabela??, you might be wondering… but probably not, because I’m sure you all read her amazing blog, Fieldguided! She is a great friend and Robber enthusiast and very kindly agreed to do a guest post of her holiday gift ideas. Thanks pal!
This year I’ve been veering away from vintage, ruffled party dresses and towards clothing that is slightly more sophisticated and grown-up. The existence of Robber has been absolutely essential in this act of transformation, and far more efficient than a self-help book. Thanks, guys! The items on my wishlist, however, are quite possibly the girliest pieces of clothing that Robber carries. I just can’t help myself.
I have been longing (yes, longing — that is not an exaggeration) for the Annabelle dress by Dace since it first arrived in August (shown here in navy). It is the perfect shade of plum, and the shoulders on this dress give it an edge that my vintage, ruffled party dresses don’t have. It’s made of silk, my favourite material, and the dress and I share a name. Basically, I’m not sure why I don’t actually own it yet.
I already have this amethyst slice necklace from Chain Chain Chained, but I love it so much that I wouldn’t mind having another. You know, just in case. It feels as though I’m wearing the prettiest science project around my neck. A+, first place.
A perfect pair of tights can help pull an outfit together. The Hansel from Basel gargantuan cable tights are so amazing that they can become the focal point of an outfit! These tights + LBD + some heels, and you’re done.
I love all of Erin Templeton’s bags, but in particular I love the texture of the whiskey-coloured leather that she uses. The Good Girl purse is so sweet. I’m a good girl; I should have this purse.
Goths and George “I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable” Costanza know how great velvet is. The Built By Wendy velvet miniskirt is so adorable, and perfectly holiday party ready. The fabric feels so luxurious. I’m so glad to see velvet used in such a beautiful way.
Finally, I would love to have a drawer full of the Alternative Apparel silk modal boyfriend tees. This shirt is slightly sheer and oh so hot. The drape is as perfect as drape comes. Love at first sight!
Thanks, Robber, for letting me daydream!
