This weeks Holiday one on one is with the endlessly talented Sarah Klassen from Haute Design.  Sarah is such a delight! We know you will think so too!  

1. Favourite holiday tradition?
Selecting our Christmas tree. The entire family is involved, and we usually end up with an enormous tree and a funny story to tell. This year, I brought up a new idea: 3 trees instead of one, in staggering sizes. It threw everyone off, but I’m optimistic.

2. Favourite holiday movie?
Love Actually.

3. What’s on your Christmas wish list?
*A bottle of L’exclusive de Chanel perfume, Beige
*A new cape knitted by my Grandma

*Demy Lee Black Cashmere Cardigan
*Avoca socks 

*A cozy long-sleeve knit
*Encyclopedia of the Exquisite book
*A bike

One that includes a fabulous dress, heels and jewelry, my boyfriend, and the city.
