Why Don't You...?

…teeter off to the corner bakery in your See by Chloe Lace Up Suede Boots on Crepe Wedge, buy a fresh-baked baguette, and spend the afternoon eating it in the park while reading Wharton’s The Age of Innocence? Don’t forget to toss a few pieces to the birds, darlings!

…carry un petit vial of glitter in your Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Callie Bag to toss at somber strangers you may encounter? After all, it is impossible for one to remain somber when something sparkly is involved!

…put on a pair of power heels a la Pour La Victoire’s Irina Suede Pumps on Hidden Platform, and play the role of heartbreaker? As Marilyn Monroe once said, “A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”

…cinch Eberjey’s Anouk Waterfall Robe around your waist, and spend the weekend in hibernation accompanied only by DEAN & DELUCA’s Sea Salt Caramel Collection?

…whip up a batch of Chocolate Pretzel Cookies, shimmy into your MiH Jeans’ Vienna Skinny Jeans, and invite your friends over for a Cookie Swap? Only those armed with at least two dozen homemade cookies for sharing will be permitted entry!


Fashionably yours!

You know how much I love your "why don't you" posts! Mmmm carmels with sea salt, how perfect! I woke up with a craving for a big fluffy steaming cinammon roll, not my usual breakfast by a mile--so we'll have to see how the morning pans out, there's still time :)

Hope you're having a great day Erika!

I LOVE the cookie swap idea!! I'm so looking forward to baking cookies in the fall -- nothing better than that aroma wafting through the house, is there? I'll bake the chocolate pretzel cookies as my first batch :)

Midnight Cowgirl said...

The Age of Innocence is on my to read list!

Ruby Mines said...

If you havent already read it you might like My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk. It won the nobel prize in literature a few years ago- its a heavy read but is probably one of the best books I have ever read.
Great post- love the first pic btw - vavoom! ;)
