A Fashionista's Valentine's Day Wishlist from TheFind!

A Fashionista's Valentine's Day Wishlist from TheFind! featured on Shopalicious.com

If you were to ask me what I want for Valentine's Day, I would be able to give you a definitive wish list. My tastes are very simple and few: Chocolate, jewelry, and handbags. Not necessarily in that order, but there you have it.

Nothing makes me happier than a steaming sweet hot cup of cocoa, except maybe a new pair of Louboutins! A sip of decadent chocolate on a dreary winter's day can work miracles. My favorites are Bianca and Parisienne, both from Vosges. Bianca is a white chocolate tinged with lavender and Parisienne is an essence of dark chocolate with a touch of vanilla. In the shoe department, I've got my eye on these Lanvin Pom-pom thong sandals ($585 at Net-a-Porter). A flat espadrille with Lanvin's now signature pom-pom for the season. What fun these will be for spring with matching coral toe polish! Love love love. To collect coins for parking meters a Marc Jacobs python-effect leather wallet, ($375 at Net-a-Porter) is perfectly pretty in pink with this season's requisite pyramid studs. The bright pink shade will make finding this wallet in the depths of my black handbag a snap! A favorite scent of mine is Lolita Lempicka $44 at Sephora, it is sweet with anise and vanilla while smoky with sandalwood at the same time. Pairs perfectly with the scent of the Vosges hot cocoa. Yum! An extra special Valentine's treat would be an Herm├Ęs Extra wide enamel bracelet ($660.00 at Hermes.com). I'd layer this with assorted gold toned bangles. Perhaps someone will surprise me with this bracelet on February 14th? Fingers crossed!
