The Get List: Mickey Boardman
Welcome to the Get List — where we help decipher what to get the Fashion Flock this holiday season.
First up? Paper Magazine’s very own Mickey Boardman. What do you get this twitter-happy fashion guru? For starters, it must be fun, vibrant and cruelty-free.
New York Holiday Tradition: Buying myself presents on Sale!
Ok, Mr Mickey. We understand: you need to keep your energy going and mind sharp. So why not Marie Belle dark chocolate? Word has it dark chocolate has myriad health benefits, so why not a chocolate bar wrapped up in a 1940s pin-up? 212 872 2808
Must-Have Winter Accessory: Stella McCartney Falabella Bag and Missoni Cardigan
We can’t not see Mr Mickey sans Falabella, so we thought we’d give update his cruelty-free style with Stella’s latest silhouette. Perfect for toting iPhones, statement necklaces, chocolate bars & such, this Stella McCartney backpack will come in handy when Mickey is tempted to break into a hands-free DJ Mad Marj-induced dance. 212 872 2519
Best Gift Ever Received: It’s tough to beat the thrill when I got a hamster in 1975.
Hamsters are hard to beat. But knowing Mickey’s combined love for tweeting, animals and tweeting about the thrills that take place during Marc Jacobs runway shows, we thought a Marc by Marc Jacobs iPhone case would be a close runner-up. 212 872 8901
Ultimate Holiday Movie: Handcuffed for the Holidays on ABC Family. And although it’s not officially a fully Christmas movie Auntie Mame!
So. Handcuffed for the Holidays is a new one for 5th/58th….so we’re sticking with Auntie Mame. We love this madcap 1950s classic for all of its irreverence, wit and glamour. So let’s deck Mickey’s tree with its very own glamour-puss ornament. The only thing missing is a crown. 212 872 8872
Favorite New York Restaurant: Indochine
Who doesn’t love to dish it at this beloved downtown hotspot? With its martinique wallpaper, Vietnamese menu and colorful cast of characters, we only can think to add to Mickey’s candlelit conversation via Sydney Evans’ beaded charm bracelets. 212 872 8622
