Smitten Saturday

Temple of Jewels…because jewelry simply isn’t satisfying if it doesn’t make you feel like a goddess; Temple St. Clair’s creations are capable of precisely that. Drawing inspiration from Helen of Troy and Islamic Art, Temple has put together a fall line that will make your jaw drop, your heart sing, and your personality take on a splash of Cleopatra’s feistiness courtesy of the glitz, glamour, and elegance found in each piece. I’m partial to the Evil Eye Swivel Ring myself; which pretty is calling out to you, darlings?

Tea with Audrey…because a girl should never drink alone; with Cup of Fame, she doesn’t have to. Simply choose the celebrity character you’d most like to share a morning tête-à-tête with – I’m partial to Miss Golightly and Marilyn myself – plunk their cardboard frame (attached to a petite bag of classic tea blend) into a piping cup of hot water, and sip. Who will you be drinking with today, my loves?

Luck Be A Lady…because embarrassing moments are completely out of the question for the fabulous femme fatale – especially those involving…ahem…girly items; Tampurse to the rescue, darlings! Simply store your lady products in the oh-so fashionable Tampurse, and your many dashing acquaintances will be none the wiser should your handbag take an unexpected tumble, spilling its contents to the floor. Don’t you feel lucky to be a lady, kitty cats?

Stationary With a Side of Style…because the note cards one uses should be every bit as stunning as the sender herself; quite the simple task when you are jotting down your thoughts on the charming creations of pursespastriesetc. Crafted by the sassy Sara B. Bentley of Purses, Pastries, Etc…, each digitally printed card depicts Cassandra Carmen (Sara’s spendthrift alter ego) as she ambles along side streets and shopping Mecca’s doing what she does best…spending money. What would your spendthrift alter ego spend her hard-earned cash on, lovers?

Hand It Over…because there is no such thing as a girl having too many handbags in her collection; thus the reason there is always room for something new and fabulous to move in…like OUFI. Ditta in Tan, Ditta in Black, and let’s not forget the gorgeous Poppy in Gray…ooh, I think I’m in love! Which OUFI piece are you coveting, dolls?

What were you smitten with this week?


Fashionably yours!

Oh goodness who can pick just one?? The Alexander is fun for when I feel like dressing with some rockstar edge, the Ditta is great for everyday use and the Francis is definitely for when I am going out and need that 'here I am' statement bag...LOVE!!

Goodness gracious alive that Poppy in Gray is adorable! And I just recently stumbled upon those tea bags . . . I'm not a tea sort of girl (gimme my coffee!), but if I was, I'd snatch up the James Dean and dream . . . ;). Happy weekend Erika--hope it's fun!

Devs said...

Love those OUFI Ditta bags, perfect for the fall. Which is exactly what I'm smitten with this week, the fall clothes arriving in the stores, with all their rich colors and textures :)

Peter Breese said...

I'll have tea with Audrey.. though they sound brilliant for my wife, I'll probably have to pass on the rest ;). Though I do hear that pinky rings are coming back for fellas.

Erika, I adore you for having a solution to every problem life could through at us. So perhaps my tea tete-a-tete choice would be YOU!

AH said...

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Awesome possum accumulation of things, as per usual.

I must admit that those note cards look awesome. Pretty stationary would certainly make school and homework and all those icky things a milestone better.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Rick said...

oh wow, Erika. I was just having a 'fashion conversation' yesterday with a friend with heritage from Egypt who shared with me all about the "Evil Eye" and how prominient it is in the Middle East. It was quite an education. And that is a good thing, because I was able to recognize when I saw it here!

Thank you! :) and hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

much love,

Rick

What cute stationary- we need to write more pretty letters these days instead of text messages!

And I absolutely love the Temple St Clair vine bracelets, perfect for the modern day goddess.
