A cute little cactus, party platforms, stay-at-home slip-ons, and more.

For our next Holiday Wishlist, we head to the West Coast to check in on LA-based designer Raquel Allegra. With her eponymous brand of bohemian-minded clothing (think elevated loungewear you could take out of the home), Allegra has found fans in Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway, and can be found sold in Barneys and Net-a-Porter. Taking in her latest collection of billowy paint-splattered pants, raw-edge denim, and slouchy blouses, it’s not hard to see the designer’s artful aesthetic come shining through. One gets the feeling that Allegra, while clearly motivated, has an enviably easy-going approach to life.

Here she rounds up six of her holiday must-haves, and they’re just as colorful and cute as you could imagine.    

THE TRINKET

A bronze cactus statuette from Mohawk Hardware: "This little guy pulls at my heartstrings! My friends over at Mohawk General Store created this based on a found vintage treasure, perfect for the Wild West lover in all of us."

THE SHOE

Platform boots from Vetements: "A pair for the parties." 

THE SLIP-ON

Ankle boots from The Row: "For the home."

THE DRESS

Silk tie dye peasant dress, "Poppy Bloom," from Raquel Allegra: "This hand-dyed dress. In my favorite color combination. With heels. With sneakers."

THE SCENT

Cowboy fragrance from Mondo Mondo: "This store and all its affordable treasures. I want three of everything. Especially this cowboy perfume. Nothing sexier than a lady cowboy (wink)."

THE ACCESSORY

Rainbow Shield Diamond Ring by Polly Wales: "Pretty sure this ring will make me feel like the treasure at the end of the rainbow."
