November is my favorite time of the year, from pumpkin-spice everything to the gluttony of Thanksgiving and, of course, my birthday! When it comes to the holiday season, I love buying presents for others (and for myself!), so I thought I'd put together a collection of some of my favorite items of the moment, many from adorable Etsy shops I recommend exploring. Hopefully they can give you ideas for Christmas shopping to come!
My first items are these fanciful, handmade pastel oxfords. All the pastels are completely covetable, but I'm really digging the pink ones. I haven't found replacement pink shoes since my sad saddle shoe days. Best of all, they are seriously well-priced for handmade leather shoes!

Seriously, how cute is this rabbit tote?!

Polaroid makes sunglasses?! Yep! Who knew?

Recommended by Vixen Vintage, these petticoats look oh-so-soft. All my petticoats are the itchy, scrunchy kind and this one seems so luxurious. I'm not sure which inch length I'd use the most, though.

I am officially obsessed with illustrations by Caitlin Shearer. Her style is fantastically twee, girly and adorable. Here are some of my favorites...
Tea Party Print, $15
I have a similar style scarf of pretty ladies or I would've convinced myself to buy this long ago:
Sunday Stroll Silk Scarf, $50
This Biscuits Dress is probably my favorite item of the Caitlin Shearer bunch. I got really excited when I thought it came in my size and then realized Australian sizes are completely different/smaller than U.S. sizes. Oh well. Seriously, how amazing is it though?
Biscuits Dress, $150
How fantastic does this book sound? Perfect for my new tea obsession!
The Vintage Tea Party Book: A Complete Guide to Hosting Your Perfect Party, $19.77
Bass shoes galore! I'm constantly in love with every Bass/Bass Loves Rachel Antonoff shoe that appears, but I curse myself for not getting these polka dot saddle shoes when I could!
These two lovelies are still available, though:
Maebird Black/Clear, $129
Leopard Saddle Shoe, $89
Picasso Cats Scarf by leahgoren, $96
It's a cat...in a bow tie! What's not to love?
Cat tote by Cat Vs. Human, $20
This is such amazing fabric. Of course it reminds me of my friend Ignacio's fantastic galaxy photos.
LMC Nebula Skirt by ShadowplayNYC, $138
Galaxy Scarf by ShadowplayNYC, $85
I know, I like way too much cat stuff…the odd thing is that I'm a dog person!
Cat pillow by Jessicaleighjones, $15
I love Girl Scout style, I really do.
Bow Tie by flappergirl, $18
Red Valentino patent-leather loafers, $425
This too is one of those things I wish came in my size, but it's ballet chic nonetheless. Anyone have any suggestions where to find a plus-size tulle skirt?
Alexandra Grecco skirt, $198
I love Ferragamo sling-backs! They are oddly more comfortable than the regular heel.
Vintage Slingback Open-toe Ferragamos from vintagegogirl, $62
With my love for girl groups, I need to own these volumes.
Girls in the Garage Volumes
Oh, Bill. Even during Sandy, there you were.

Lastly, these dreamy polka dot Keds come in men's and women's sizes! They are definitely a gift I recommend for yourself or the sartorially adventurous man in your life.
