Smitten Saturday

Get the Boot!…because fabulous boots are essential even in the dead of summer; and you truly cannot get more fabulous than Penelope and Coco. Each shoe is handmade by designer Marisa Spinella in her Los Angeles studio, making the creations one-of-a-kind. The only hard part is deciding which to splurge on – Capone, GypsyRose, Riina, RubyK, or Millet. I believe I hear Miss Riina calling my name. Which Penelope and Coco creation is calling yours, dolls?

A Rose By Any Other Name…because there are no rules stating that children’s books are intended only for children; and when they are as dainty and delicate as Madonna’s The English Roses Collection, they are an absolute necessity – especially for the fashionista. As precocious as Eloise, as flowery as Shakespeare; don’t deny it, kitty cats – you know you want to add these to your home library!

Beauty and the Case…because a true glamorous girl deserves a suitcase, beauty case, or entire travel collection that is just as stylish as she; and that is precisely what the Britto Collection offers. Each piece is embellished with kitschy colors, avant-garde designs, and an Andy Warhol effect that is sure to give onlookers luggage envy. Which Britto Collection offering is your favorite, my loves?

Joy to the…Bath?…because every girl deserves a little soak in the tub to clear her head; but no soak is complete without some yummy smelling bath salts like the ones from Joyful Bath Co. Choose from ‘Nilla Buttermilk, Citrus Buzz, Oatsy Floatsie, Ginger Snap, Mellow Yellow, or Green Tea Glee. The best part? Each purchase is accompanied by an ambrosial Bath in Progress doorhanger to ensure that you’re not disturbed!

Head Case…because turbans are back with a bang, and no accessory drawer is complete without at least a few peeking out from inside; luckily, GoldSaturn provides you with an abundance of colors and patterns to choose from. I have my eye on Coral Sunset; which shade are you lusting over, lovers?

What were you smitten with this week?


Fashionably yours!

Oooh I love that picture; it is just so sweet. I agree on the soak in the tub... one needs lux items such as bath salts or the fabulous bathbombs from Lush.. which I intend to be using very, very soon =)

Pixie Drive-In said...

I am so obsessed with those turbans! I need to get my hands on any turban for this summer though. I love that they're back!

If I had done at least ONE of these things today, my Saturday would have been FABULOUS. Sigh.

Rachel said...

The 'Nilla Buttermilk bath salts sound like they'd smell amazing!

I don't think I could pull of turbans, but I love the Coral Sunset one. The color is so pretty!

Cindy Whitehead said...

childrens book and a long soak in the tub - a perfect Saturday evening!

Jen said...

S.Elisabeth said...

Ah I love the boots with the studs on the heel part! Love that they're handmade!
And oh Madonna you would create something as spectacular as that children's book! (I remember we read one in class or something as part of a feelings themed project)
Hmm I'm smitten with a Taiwanese drama "Autumn's Concerto," which was the best quality drama I've ever seen, heart shaped cookies, and that picture at the beginning of your post, tres romantic!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Hello Darling! I agree, great boots are SO essential for life.....all seasons. I love that Penelope and Coco shoes, so glad you introduced us to this amazing designer. I can't believe they are all handmade, how incredible! All of them are so amazing, but I think GypsyRose is the one calling my name! :)

What a fun post for this happy Saturday Erika!

Anonymous said...

Leah said...

Hope I can get my hand on those cute luggage and cases... I will be the center of attention when I walk in the airport. xoxo

J-Diggety said...

I think a bubble bath is in order... I've been pondering a good soak, but often hesitate, as most standard baths are a bit cramped for tall gals like me... I like to submerge! But add some bubbles and we're on a different playing field! :)
xoxo J

J. said...

Serious lust for those Britto cases! I might favor the landscape collection but I like the hearts too...Do I really have to choose? While not currently in my price range, they are not bad prices for hard cases either...
