Current Obsessions…

By: Jen Shoop

A few items I’m currently lusting after, starting with the stunning bow-adorned boxwood wreaths above from Fig and Dove! Click on images below to be taken to details or see notes after.

+This ice blue puff-sleeved dress looked absolutely gorgeous on Amber Box — and far more expensive than its $120 pricetag!

+Yet another pair of statement earrings I’d love to own. These also look much more expensive than they are — they pass for fine jewelry! (More stunning statement jewelry finds.)

+Micro just outgrew his Polarn O. Pyret snowsuit and I’m ordering him this one in his current size. These are simply the best-made suits for inclement weather. Word to the wise: this brand runs big (specifically, long). Micro is very tall for his age and still he just now outgrew a size 2-4 month snowsuit. For context, he is six months old and usually wearing 9-12 months these days!

+Swooning over these stunning shatterproof dove ornaments. Thanks to Nicola Bathie (a Magpie woman of substance!) for the tip!

+How INSANE is this tinsel top, made from upcycled bottle tops?!

+Another darling holiday season book for little ones.

+Love these mother of pearl clover earrings from Hazen & Co. ($45!)

+Stylesetter Alice Naylor-Leyland’s tablescape collection is beyond. Would love these velvet-bow crackers to be on my holiday table.

+Caspari makes the absolute best taper candles in the prettiest colors.

+We finally find our tree-topper this year, from the incredible home goods store ABC Home here in New York. I absolutely love this dramatic star, which looks vaguely like a halo in a Medieval Christian painting to me. It looks startlingly statuesque, but is made of something like paper mache so super light!

+Tocca’s Cleopatra candle remains one of my all-time favorite year-round scents.

+Swooning over Hill House Home’s new baby collection. Hill has sadly outgrown the sizing for nearly everything they have, but I might gift one of their darling sets to a new mom in the coming months. (More gifts for new babies / new moms here.)

+Adore this oyster ornament.

P.S. Inspired by the above, I ordered these mini boxwood wreaths to hang in our windows with 2″ wide satin ribbon.

P.P.S. Two years in New York, things I want to know more about, and things I won’t soon forget.

  1. ADORE that upcycled Germanier top! How cool. I must say, for anyone who is considering a purchase, that I also love ordering from MatchesFashion — they often have amazing deals on hard-to-find brands (at least, ones that are hard to find in the US) and I love their marbled gift boxes! A++ packaging.


    1. Totally agree — I first ordered from them maybe two years ago because it felt like a kind of weird site to me for some reason. I have been SO impressed with their customer care, their speed of shipping, the variety of items they have, and their incredible promotions. Have bought a number of statement pieces that are hard to find elsewhere from them, including a few Emilia Wickstead items!
