I'm Lucky Enough to Be a Shopping Editor, and These Are 11 Items I'm Loving This Week
Though this is the season to shop for others, I can't help but pick out a few things for myself as well. As an assistant shopping editor, my job is to hunt down the hottest items on the internet that readers should know about. I scour the web for the best of fashion, beauty, home, and many more categories that are on everyone's minds. Naturally, it's hard not to discover products to add to my own mental shopping cart. With the holiday season in full swing, I'm digging cuddle-worthy knits, head-turning dresses, sparkly makeup, statement shoes, cozy decor, and more.
If you are curious about what shopping editors put on their wish lists, now is the time to see for yourself. I curated a roundup of the coolest goodies out there. Get ready to practice self-control, because you'll be tempted to pull out that credit card.
BaubleBar Corsetta Tassel Earrings
I am hopelessly addicted to statement jewelry, and these BaubleBar Parisian Duster Earrings ($52) are all I can currently think about. Baublebar has so many new, dazzling designs right now, it's hard to choose just one. I'm crossing my fingers I'll find this pair in my stocking.
ASOS Velvet Bardot Embroidered Midi Dress
The words and phrases embroidered onto this ASOS Velvet Bardot Midi Dress ($92) give it a romantic look — it reminds me of a love letter. I think this would be a pretty, unexpected option for New Year's Eve.
Urban Outfitters Copper Bar Cocktail Shaker Set
I am setting up my new bar cart, and I'm into this Urban Outfitters Copper Bar Cocktail Shaker Set ($39) because it will give off a cohesive, polished look. It would also make a great gift if you're stumped on what to get a friend or loved one.
Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
My sister introduced me to this Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27), and OMG I'm so impressed with the color payoff of these formulas. The palette is a mini (about the size of a compact) so it easily slides into my purse for touch-ups.
Shein Insect Detail Velvet Chain Bag With Jewelry
This Shein Insect Detail Velvet Chain Bag With Jewelry ($18) reminds me of the designer purses I'm lusting after, but this one has an insanely affordable price tag. It will liven up a simple little black dress.
Stars In Her Eyes Anklet by Lirika Matoshi at Free People
I freaked out over these Stars In Her Eyes Anklet by Lirika Matoshi at Free People ($36). Wear them with heels or sneakers; they step up your outfit game either way.
Illume Nightmarket Candle
This unique vintage-inspired design of this Illume Nightmarket Candle ($20) makes for a thoughtful hosting gift. I have plenty of holiday parties to attend this month, and it's always nice to show up with a present. It's available in three different scents: milk and cookies, hot buttered rum, and mulled wine.
Christian Louboutin Douce Du Desert 100 Satin-Crepe Pumps
All I want for Christmas? These Christian Louboutin Douce Du Desert 100 Satin-Crepe Pumps ($895), obviously. A designer pair like this will last me for years, plus they make any outfit feel extra special. The wrap-around ankle ribbon adds the hint of drama we all need.
