Smitten Saturday

Twinkle Toes Girls really get the short end of the stick when it comes to dressing for a night out, don’t you think, dearests? While boys are allowed to cover themselves from head to toe, we being the fashionable femme fatales that we are, find ourselves compelled to be daring in our dress, allowing slivers of our soft, porcelain skin to be frostbitten by whipping winds for the sake of style. I don’t know about all of you, but there is one bit of my body that simply cannot be exposed to cutting conditions…my feet!

Winter, spring, summer, or fall, my tootsies can always be found bound in tights or socks that will keep them cozy no matter how low the temperature drops; therefore, yes, I will be donning my pleasing peep-toes for the holiday season, but no, my pedicured paws will not be bare. I shall be perusing a trio of lingerie-inspired girls by the names of Maria, Gloria, and Rita to keep my toes toasty yet tantalizing all at once. Voet Hosiery’s sassy scalloping, luring lace, and magnetizing mesh embellishments turn typical peds into swank selections you’ll be dying to show off to your friends, and don with your most darling pairs of slingbacks, ballerinas, and peep-toes. Which Voet girl is your favorite?

This Magic Moment Perhaps I’m unable to speak for all of you; but the concept of time capsules has forever left me riddled with excitement! There’s something quite enchanting about putting your hopes, dreams, and memories into a box, sealing it with a Juice Gems kiss, and settling it out of sight for years upon years, only to open it later on in life to reminisce, and re-discover your old self. But alas; far too many time capsules are buried underground, never to be seen again. So is not something to worry about with The Moment Jars. As opposed to spending countless hours searching for the perfect pieces to install in your capsule, The Moment Jars provides one with the ability to create as many as they’d like, and share them virtually with the world Online. What memories will you lock away in your moment jar?

Frosty Freeze Kitty cats, why on earth are we allowing Frosty the Snowman to have all the fun? There he is gallivanting through the streets singing jubilantly, a trail of pint-sized pals following closely in his wake, and where are we? Searching for the perfect product to coat our lips, of course! But lip gloss doesn’t always make the cut. Yes darlings, I’ve said it…when it comes to a powerful pucker sometimes we must forgo the slick surface of gloss, and embrace a frosty smooch for a kisser that draws crowds. A hue reminiscent of freshly fallen snow tinged with persuasive pastel or nude shades that play upon your lips in the most luxurious of fashions.

Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lipstick in Frosted is the perfect present for the golden girl looking to add a subtle shimmer to her nude attitude. For the city slicker who loves bold colors, there’s no better choice than the brazen New York Apple from MAC. And the sophisticate who wants only an ever so slight sparkle will never be able to resist mark’s Pro Glimmer Hook Up Lip Powder. Layer it underneath your gloss du jour for an effect which juxtaposes between coquettish and cosmopolitan. Ready to get frosty?

What were you smitten with this week?


Fashionably yours!

I am entirely smitten with the beautiful weather we've been having here in Texas! Can't get enough!

I'm glad you enjoyed the CL bag I posted...tell me dear, what's your fantasy bag? I'm dying to know!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love those toe Voet things! I was at DSW on Wednesday eyeing a pair of open toe booties and thinking... I like them, but do I really want my toes exposed all the time with them? This is such a stylish answer!
And yes, I love time capsules. I have one hidden... somewhere...

The Style Revolution said...

OMG> The Moment Jar.... Unfreakinbelievable! LOVE

nookie said...

Dolly Daydream aka Jasmine said...

I see young women baring their legs an awful lot in magazines as well as the streets I cannot imagine how I would manage to shave my legs every night to party (of which the concept still baffles me) in fact partying dsoes not baffle me but raving does jumping up and down does not seem like fun it just seems like a loss of energy as far as I am concerned. But no, I am far too obsessed with the variety of tights there are to let them slip to easily and if it gets too hot well we always have extra thin tights!

I love the picture at the top of the post.

Alice said...

I love the idea of a bit of lace peeping out of my shoe...

I have been moving so often for the past years that there has been no chance to descover any hidden packages I buried and forgot about...however I love rummaging through my old stuff whenever I go home in Hungary, that is my time capsule :)

Hope said...

I REALLY like that MAC lipstick, might have to pick that up!

And in response to your comment on my blog- You haven't bought blush!!! Girl, this need to change!! ;)

Haute World said...

Those Voet pieces are adorable! What a lovely idea to keep toes warm and chic! Adore the idea of the Moment Jars as well!

tess said...

The F Word Online said...

hahah its funny cause i always thought that to myself too - that if we want to look good through the cold seasons we pretty much have to freeze to death ! life is so unfair isnt it?

and this week i was completely smitten with my boyfriend :) its only been a week but i woke up to coffee beside my bed and breakfast.

Leah said...

The lingerie for the toes is such an amazing idea... love it.

Happy Saturday Erika! xoxo

Cafe Pasadena said...

I think girls have so many more choices to dress than guys. Which can be both a pro & con. Especially if time is a factor.

Lady said...

Wonderful pictures used darling!!!!!! I hate that I need to be all dressed up to go out and guys just have to put on a collared shirt. Tsktsk. Wonderful post darling.

E said...

ediot said...

great post my dear!!
well there is definitely an challenge to wearing chic warm clothes- but i try to first and foremost dress warm.
but ive made an decision so far to always pick wool coats over bubble-jackets..
equally warm-i think- but cuter..

:)
have a lovely weekend.

The Fancier said...

I love those little lacy toe covers! I might have to get me some of those.

Andhari said...

I like them. They're cute! I get cold around the feet a lot too, I will probably say yes to tights most of the times.

Claire Kiefer said...

Although I can't imagine that those lacy mini-socks would really keep anyone's feet warm, they are BEAUTIFUL! I'm trying to imagine them with shoes that would show them off a little . . . so pretty. :)

Jessica said...

that's funny you mention your feet bc I have bad circulation so my hands and feet always feel like ice cubes regardless, so they are usually my last thought since no matter what i do they're cold. haha!

Jessica said...

The Moment Jars are such a sweet idea!

Fashionography. said...

I love the idea of keepsake boxes! I've written letters to be opened later in my life, but a keepsake box sounds lovely!

Sherin said...

Those socks are so adorable and sexy. I want a pair to wear over the next few months, so my feet never get cold.
Oh, I'm loving frosted lipstick. It is such a gorgeous look.

Maddy said...

My feet are always cold! That's why I'm Ugg obsessed! What am I smitten with this week?...Anything that has to deal with camera! I'm going overboard with the camera shopping lately :o)

Sara Lynn said...

Keepsake boxes are so cool! I really like the little "twinkle toes" that is a great Idea. I love that picture too by the way, very pretty.

Shannon of ** Happiness Is...** said...

Um...I want to be that girl in the photos. She is stunning. Love those twinkle toes too. Have a beautiful day my friend! xo
