We're all for saving pennies this year, but if you should splurge on just one thing, we'll place our cards on this beaut of a bag from one of our all time favorite Parisian labels. While our hearts are stopping over its two-tone gray colorway and shiny gold hardware, what makes us convinced is the way it elevates our good 'ol outfits a notch more luxe.
3. GFACTORY's Edifice Watch
GFactory watch, P29,995.00 each

4. Aranha 1979 Sandals from GELEIA

You stare at the infinite abyss that is your shoe closet and feel not underwhelmed, not overwhelmed, but just, whelmed. Break the boredom with an unorthodox footwear choice. It's white, chunky and coolly ginormous, which is exactly why you must have it. Plus, it looks great on Instagram.
5. Mid-rise pumps from VIA VENETTO
Via Venetto shoe, Price available in store
For: People to take your seriously
If your mall look is your church look is your meeting look is your date look, and you're not 14, you'll do good knowing that even a little sense of dress code will help people realize you're all grown up. Start with sensible shoes, like this classic pair from Via Venetto, and work your way from there.
6. This LABRADOR FACTORY Cardholder/Wallet
Labrador Factory cardholder/wallet, Price available in store
For: Organizing your hot mess of a life. Hello 2015!
It occurs in various settings: while you're in line at the cashier, while at a restaurant as the bill is handed out, while at a vending machine jonesing for a snack. You fumble through the crevices of your jeans pocket only to be rattled by the sound of a million coins dropping when what you needed was a solid bill. For fashion's sake, cease cramping your style and finally get a stylish cardholder that doubles as a wallet so you won't feel lazy fishing it out of your bag.
