(Or the post alternately called, "Lindsay's Expensive Taste"...)
Two weeks til Christmas Eve and I still don't have a plane ticket to Minnesota. $700+ is just not sounding very palatable for a roundtrip that normally costs about $300-$350. So I'm waiting this one out. On Thursday I saw a price drop to $560, but even that seems overpriced.
While I wait patiently for airfares to fall (go ahead, tell me I'm foolish), I thought I'd at least show you what's on my wish list this year...
1. Patagonia Classic Retro-X Vest (size: XS, color: turquoise). $149.00, plus free shipping for orders over $75.
This is the perfect vest for the office and for weekend errands in the city. Bonus: it's from Patagonia, so it's made tough enough to wear to the ends of the earth.
2. Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera (with 18-135mm lens). $1,078.99, on sale now at Best Buy.
This is pretty much my dream camera. I've mastered my Canon PowerShot 780IS, and I'd like to take my photography to the next level. Bonus: the camera also takes HD video!
3. Steve Jobs, the book (by Walter Isaacson). $17.87 at Amazon, $35.00 elsewhere.
I've heard nothing but rave reviews about one of the most significant new biographies of 2011.
4. Adobe Lightroom 3 (for Mac iOS). $193.00 on Amazon, $299.99 elsewhere.
Fancy new camera needs fancy new photo editing software, don't you think? iPhoto is good for storing photos, but it's not good for editing.
5. 1950's Smith-Corona Typewriter (in PINK). Prices vary.
I have massive typewriter lust. I've been searching for something vintage (in good working order) for the last month or two. The pink ones are so fabulous. An awesome conversation piece for any room and a fun accessory for a DIY-girl.
6. Jawbone Up (size: S). Currently recalled and unavailable for sale.
Yes, that's right this product is full of bugs and the company recently started offering full refunds to all customers while it sorts of some technical problems. But when version 2 hits store shelves, I want one of these most-amazing bracelets that connect to an iPhone and offer health data (sleep, activity/calories, GPS/exercise tracking) galore.
7. Lululemon Wrap Tank (size: 6, color: white coal tinted canvas)
I've been on a Bar Method binge. While I "tuck, tuck, squeeze" my way to a beautiful body, I at least want to do it in great style. The uniform at Bar seems to be Lululemon, and I've always been one to conform. Ok, the conformity part is kind of a fib, but Lululemon is a fabulous brand anyways. In fact the girls in my Bar class actually go hang out at the Palo Alto store after class. It's definitely a cult.
