Angelique Serrano, Beauty Director
La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream, $310; nordstrom.com
"I would adore a facial at the new Spa de La Mer inside the sparkling New York City Baccarat Hotel. Until someone gets my not-so-subtle hint, I’ll continue to treat my face with the brand’s hydrating yet lightweight Soft Cream.
Design your own Burberry scarf, from $650; burberry.com
"I can’t wait to pop into the Burberry store and design my own neckwear at their super-chic scarf bar. What better gift is there than being allowed to play designer and pick out your own colors and patterns?"
Jimmy Choo sneakers, $432 (originally $750), saksfifthavenue.com
"I’ve been a high-heel-wearing girl since college. I’ve only now decided to step back into sneakers—thanks in part to the cool style of these Jimmy Choo leather lace-ups. They would look so cute with my black leather mini skirt and chunky knit sweater."
Andrea Cheng, Associate Editor
Charlotte Simone faux fur scarf, $456; coggles.com
“Charlotte Simone’s popsicle faux fur stoles aren’t new, but I wish for them every winter.”
Altuzarra crepe skirt, $620 (originally $887); mytheresa.com
“Joseph Altuzarra is celebrated for designing the perfect slit (among other things, of course). When I chatted with Michelle Monaghan earlier this year, she waxed lyrical about Altuzarra’s high-slit skirt. It’s been at the top of my wish list since.”
Fendi Mini Peekaboo bag, $3,150; fendi.com
“My collection of purses has one thing in common—they’re all black. A neutral beige one would bring a nice, refreshing change. Plus, I’m a sucker for adorable teeny-tiny bags.”
Alexandra DeRosa, eCommerce Editor
Wisteria Venetian Vanity Mirror, $195 (originally $229); wisteria.com
“I just moved into a new sparkly apartment in the Financial District. I bought myself a dove gray tufted velvet headboard (with curved wings!) and I plan to frame it with two of these Venetian mirrors."
Belusso two-piece swimsuit; for similar styles visit belusso.com
“I live for Belusso swimsuits. The brand consistently turns out unique silhouettes with look-at-me prints. I’ve never worn a Belusso suit without receiving a compliment.”
Gianvito Rossi lace open-toe booties, $1,150; mytheresa.com
“I’ve had my heart set on these booties since the moment I laid eyes on them. I tend to buy boots and booties that are sturdier and functional (I save my fun for pumps and sandals), so this lace pair will round out my collection.”
Meggan Crum, Accessories Director
Jemma Wynne emerald and diamond ring, $7,035; ylang23.com
"I’m obsessed with Jemma Wynne rings. I love emeralds and love the way the stone feels modern in this setting."
Apple TV, from $149; apple.com
"I’m actually getting this for my husband because I want it for myself!"
The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose print, from $25; theanimalprintshop.com
"This print is perfect for my daughter's room. It's so sweet and there are a lot of different animals to choose from."
Joanna Bober, Lifestyle Director
Nathalie Sonnet deep blue platters, $295 to $350; abchome.com
"I’ve had my eye on these deep blue, almost black, fragile platters. I’d mix them in with my white basic plates (and fill them with dark leafy greens)."
Monique Péan diamond & Kyanite ring, $6,690; barneys.com
"I love the mix of stones on this stunning ring—classic pave diamonds and a shard of Kyanite, a mineral that is, apparently, the 'Stone of Alignment' and a powerful energy conductor. Sign me up!"
Gucci metallic leather loafers, $355 (originally $595); saksfifthavenue.com
"Sleek loafers that look like they’ve been dipped in liquid silver! I like the rounded shape of the toe, and I’d wear them with black stovepipe pants."
Priya Rao, Senior Fashion Writer
Vince wool-blend coat, $595; matchesfashion.com
"I’m usually in all black, but something about this luxe navy coat that bleeds into deep oxblood has me loving color."
Chloé mini cross-body bag, $1,850; barneys.com
"I'm in the market for a new mini bag. This is the perfect size to carry my keys, cards, and lip tints."
Dries Van Noten embellished velvet sandals, $569; mytheresa.com
"I’ve been eyeing these velvet, fringed-trimmed sandals for months. They are such a statement."
