Smitten Saturday


Chopper Chic I have searched high and low for a pair of motorcycle boots that were affordable yet divine. Finally, after putting a halt to my hunt, the pair of my dreams seemingly comes right up and bites me on the nose in the form of an under-eighteen-dollar find at Target. The discovery, however, may have caused more harm than good. Sure, I’m absolutely weak in the knees from this fashion find; but it has also left me in a complete and utter tizzy. Suddenly I’m obsessed with motorcycle boots, and want to add more chopper chic magnificence to my footwear. These offer a quintessential mix of handsome ruggedness and feminine mystique. Wouldn’t these look blissful if paired with a crisp white shirtdress cinched with a black belt or ribbon? And these are obviously destined to make an appearance in little Jenny Humphrey’s rebellious wardrobe any day now. Regardless of the fact that I am terrified of motorcycles, I am utterly tempted by the fashion that is synonymous to them.

Dear Dylan I have never had much of a sweet tooth. In fact, when I was a child, I would collect candy on Halloween while decked out as my favorite Disney Princess, bring it home to sort and count; then promptly give it to my sugar-addicted friends and family members. That said, ever since I learned of Dylan’s Candy Bar, I’ve wanted to move in. Or at least pop in for a visit. Especially now that they have accessories. I plan on donning this Striped Ring while digging into these Chocolate Covered Gummy Bears. I’d love to swipe on some of this Chocolate Cupcake Lip Saver while sucking on these Whirly Pops. And splashing into a puddle while wearing these Rain Boots and chomping on these Chocolate Covered Pretzels? Sounds like a plan to me. I’m in dire need of a sugar rush; Dear Dylan, please bring a Candy Bar location to California!

Channeling Chanel I’ve come to the conclusion that I most likely will be unable to afford a Chanel 2.55 Quilted Bag, or Chanel Two-Tone Ballerina Flats anytime in the near future; thus, to satisfy my craving for Chanel, I have decided to acquire the designer’s divine pieces via a cheaper outlet – nail polish. I’ll take this Le Vernis Nail Colour in Ballerina (because my dream is to be one), Paparazzi (who doesn’t love to feel as if they’re being hounded by the press?), and Fizz (because I plan on indulging in many fizzy, fruit, colorful, tropical drinks over the summer); and this Nail Colour Limited Edition Exclusive Creation Facettes D’or in Gold Fiction because every girl deserves a little gold in her life. Who knew that Channeling Chanel could be so simple?


Madame Butterfly I was always a very loyal follower of butterflies. Until owls came into my life, that is. The nocturnal dreamboats quickly took center stage in my eyes, replacing the fluttering femme fatales. This colorful butterfly dress has restored my affections for them. I first saw Ashley Tisdale donning it over six months ago and instantly wondered who the mastermind behind such a cheery creation could be. Now I know...Free People! I long to add this delight to my summer attire. In addition to this, this, and this, of course. Just call me Madame Butterfly!

Breakfast in New York I blame it on Heidi Merrick and her divine Aunt Judy Dress which I raved about not too long ago. If it weren’t for her, I may not have stumbled upon Sunday Brunch Dress Shop; but I suppose it’s too late to do anything about it now. Sunday Brunch Dress Shop has become one of my first stops each time I log onto the information highway. Each offering looks like something straight out of the closet of Daisy Buchanan; and manages to appear classic, while completely modern at the same time. Currently I’m salivating over the electric blue Mel en Stel Cup of Tea Ruffle Dress (pinkies up!); the Heidi Merrick Traveling Dress; the Mimi Turner Terra Cotta Zipper Dress (perfect for dancing the night away!), the Fin Eco Slouchy Dress; and, of course, my dear Aunt Judy. So...who wants some breakfast?

Livin’ La Vida Leighton It has taken me some time to come to terms with the fact that Leighton Meester is not Blair Waldorf and Blair Waldorf is not Leighton Meester. Remiss, I must admit that I L-O-V-E the both of them just as if they were one and the same. Like Blair, Leighton has a wonderful fashion sense. Just look at this perfect peach pairing – j’adore! Like Blair, Leighton has an adorable boyfriend who is a part-time Gossip Guy – Sebastian Stan. And, while Blair has never belted anything out on Gossip Girl (at least as far as I can remember), I am a huge fan of Leighton’s voice, which can be heard a la Bette Davis Eyes here. Yes, I’m livin’ la vida Leighton; and proud of it!

What were you smitten with this week?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Luphia Loves...for the picture.

I love your new layout!

I have slowly come to the realisation that Leighton Meester isn't Blair Waldorf, either. I had no idea that LM was a singer! Listening to the song now - her voice is really fab.

I do think I prefer Blair Waldorf's dress sense to Leighton's, but I do like the fact that she is experimentative and fresh when it comes to fashion. And she is incredibly beautiful!
