Smitten Saturday

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle…because even glamorous girls are conscious about helping the environment; they simply know how to do it in a fashionable way – like with the assistance of Ora Bags. Crafted out of vintage, recycled leather; each piece is a stylish reminder of the part you are playing in the recycling movement. I’ll take the Cory Small Satchel #192 Natural Gold, s’il vous plait!

Starring Moi!…because every girl should have the chance to star in her very own fairytale at some point in time; Getting Personal lets you do just that via their Personalized Classic Books. Select the title of your choice – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Pride & Prejudice, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Robin Hood, Dracula, Romeo & Juliet, The Hound of the Baskervilles, or Frankenstein - cast yourself and your friends and family as supporting characters, and voila! Getting Personal reprints the book starring you! Which tale do you want to be a part of, my loves?

Pat-A-Cake, Pat-A Cake, Baker’s Man…because every girl has the right to satisfy her sweet tooth every now and then; and there is no way so satisfying as with Little Oven’s colorful Macaron creations, which make you feel more and more like Marie Antoinette with each nibble!

London Calling…because a girls style is forever evolving, requiring a different look for each day. Chichi London understands that; serving up saucy, unique collections such as Succulent, Understated Regal, Mwangaza, and Made in Dar. I’m partial to Succulent myself. Which collection is your favorite, dolls?

Going Native…because being an Indian Princess a la Pocahontas is a dream no girl can refuse. Though you may lack the Native American heritage; that’s no reason for you to go without the classic outdoor humble abode. Forgo the standard tent this summer and instead spend your evenings holed up in a true Tepee from Design Within Reach. Just don’t forget the marshmallows, kitty cats; no campout is complete without them!

What were you smitten with this week?


Fashionably yours!

Your posts are always so cupcakely-wonderfully inspirational! I'm in NY now. My U.S. trip rolls along sweetly. I saw some mighty yummy treats yesterday at a corner deli here in Manhattan and thought about you - cupcake princess! Sending hugs!

Erika, you're brilliant for these finds. How I love that tepee! I can't imagine much more fun than decorating the inside beautifully and having summer outdoor sleepovers out there--amazing! I'm kind of crushed that it's over 2,000!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love those personalized books! So fun! And give me some macaroons and marshmallows because I am ready to camp like a queen.
This week I was smitten with Thin Mints. I love Girl Scout Cookies.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Love this! The Personalized Classic Books (I'm thinking Pride & Prejudice) is on my wish list.

Joanne said...

The new crocheted look, perfect to top off a sun dress!

Sootjeelina said...

I was smitten with exciting movie-sound-tracks and the movies itself. For example: Extreme Ways of Moby with The Bourne-series. Oh yeah I love it :D
BTW, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I really appreciate it :D

I was recently head over heels smitten when my BFF (and Fashion Rehab sister) and I got to stay at The Empire Hotel in NYC - the faux home of Chuck Bass (as seen on GG)! The hotel was absolutely marvy!
My only regret is that Ali & I never got to take a photo on the famous staircase...
Love, P

I wouldn't mind starring in Pride&Prejudice, as I have a major soft spot for Mr. Darcy. I've never had macarons, but they are popping up on blogs everywhere, and they sound amazing.
