Why Don't You...?

…put on a pretty frock, let down your hair, and be one with nature? Dance through a field of daisies; pirouette through a patch of petunias; twirl through a pasture laden with tulips. Now is the time to set yourself free, my loves!

…wear Kiki de Montparnasse Nuit Lace Gloves with everything? Allocate them as your signature accessory.

…spend the afternoon surrounded by never-ending sweets, and the latest issue of Cosmopolitan? Face it darlings, there is nothing so satisfying as a sugar rush coupled with a little scandal!

…make the world your catwalk? Strut down the sidewalk in your Sergio Rossi Definition Cutout Stiletto Sandals. Allow a pretty pout to play upon your lips while parading through the park in your Parker Cami Dress. Strike a pose in your LaROK Summer Love Romper while sashaying through the stuffy corridors of your workplace. Remember kitty cats…life is a runway.

…leave your pretty pendants at home and replace them with a whimsical bubble necklace? Blow bubbles at everyone you meet!


Fashionably yours!

I haven't picked up a Cosmo (or any magazine) in ages!!! Why buy cosmo when I have the wonderful Cafe Fashionista to look forward to on a daily basis ;o)

hélène said...

Couture Carrie said...

I always eat sweets while reading magazines. In fact, I always eat sweets and I always read fashion magaizes. I think it's like an obsession. Love xxx

amy anne said...

I love these lists! Thanks for brightening my day!

Jamie said...

I am loving that Parker Cami dress!! That is definitely sidewalk-catwalk worthy!!

The Pink Tutu said...

Dancing among spring flowers and indulging in sweets sounds like a perfect day to me!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, these Sergio Rossi sandals are adorable. Just thinking of them makes me feel elegant. Great find, Erika!

Pop Champagne said...

ohhh so cute! I love the sergio sandals in your prev post. I wouldn't spend $600 on a pair of shoes just to get mud of them!

Leah said...

I love to dance in a field of flowers. The Cosmo thing made me laugh.

Have a great day Erika! xoxo

Leia said...

I would love to do ALL these things! If only exams weren't taking over my life :( sigh.

And Erika, I can't believe you haven't yet seen the september issue! It wasn't a great movie, actually, but it did confirm my suspicions that Ms Wintour is not top of my "role model" list. To be quite frank, I think her hairstyle is completely outdated, she doesn't dress very well (always in the same type of dress!), she's far too skinny, and she doesn't seem like a very nice person at ALL! Now, go watch it and tell me your opinion :)

Sootjeelina said...

I want to do it all right now :D

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Sara Lynn said...

oh I sooo want a bubble necklace! lol That would be a riot! I love those lace gloves, very pretty! I love the pic you have up today too, well, I usually always love them :)

I totally want to run through some flowers! If only it would warm up a little more and I would!

Theresa said...

Now wherever will I find a big open field around here...
because I most do that!
The bubble necklace idea is so cute. I remember being quite a nuisance to my family as a child when it came to bubbles. haha

Claire Kiefer said...

I know, these are great. They almost give me the strength to will myself out of my office and into some lovely field or, better yet, Baker Beach. :) It's not that far away--I could be there in 20 minutes! haha. Happy mid-week, Erika!!

chaoskontrolowany said...

K said...

Awww, I miss Cosmo. My Allure subscription just doesn't do it for me.

ellie said...

so elegant indeed! but I'll have to settle for my crochetted wrist warmers..its kind of nippy here at the moment.

Sherin said...

What fantastic ideas! I am so tempted to put on my prettiest dress and run thtrough a field. But I'm definitely going to eat lots of sweets while reading a magazine tomorrow.

Rachel said...

One of these days I'm going to do all of these fabulous things you suggest, Erika! How amazing would that be? :)

Pixie Drive-In said...

YES to everything!

Joanne said...

I like the first suggestion best, probably because my garden is tilled and I'm getting ready to plant veggies and flowers in the next few days ...

I want those lace gloves! They fall in line with masks as Things-I-Could-Have-a-Fetish-For-If-I-Let-Myself!

gleenn said...

haha! I'd love to spread out my dark frocks on wide beautifull ground with the smile of fresh flowers and dried grasses mixed in that air.

This is a very beautiful photo I honestly was smitten by it. I tried lo find who owns this photo but I couldn't. I just remember taking it from tumblr.
