♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

So what is Fashionably Moi!, you ask? Café Fashionista’s new weekly series that will give you the lowdown on everything I’m currently up to – from what’s on my nails to what’s on my nightstand. Let’s begin, shall we, my loves?!

Wearing: Black floral Xhilaration dress from Target; Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Luella Zip Wedge Sandals in Black (still searching for my size in Cognac!); House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring; Hot Pink Floral Ring from Forever 21.

Reading: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – Mary Engelbreit’s Classic Library Edition, that is. The story is so much more charming with Engelbreit’s whimsical illustration on the cover!

Glamourizing: Nails: Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers layered over OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark to create what Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere has titled Poison Apple. Lips: mark’s Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Tease (sadly, this shade appears to have been discontinued) layered over mark’s Pro Glimmer Hook Up Lip Powder in Peek – perfect for creating a subtly frosted lip. Eyes: mark’s i-glimmer Illuminating Eye Color in Bronzed (another product that has tragically been discontinued!).

Listening: Baby’s Romance by Chris Garneau. I like to think of it as a lullaby for grown-ups. Listen to it immediately, si vous s'il vous plait - you will love!

Adoring: Double-finger rings. Scrangie – literally THE best nail polish blog ever; she makes me want to buy more luscious lacquers than a girl could ever possibly need! White Hot Chocolate – the name says it all.

Watching: Gossip Girl Season 2 on DVD. I’ll be honest; one Ms. Serena van der Woodsen’s diva-tude leaves much to be desired – bring back the girl I adore from Season 1!

Desiring: Hard Candy’s Just Nails with Ring in Mr. Wrong – I have searched high and low for this color and cannot find it anywhere! Belle by Sigerson Morrison Stretch Mid Thigh Wedge Boots – swoon; be still my heart! Valley of the Dolls - j’adore the book by Jacqueline Susann; therefore, it is high time to see the big screen version.

Quoting: Henry Emerson Fosdick - “I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”

Awaiting: Merona Musetta Ruffled Booties in Black. Presently I am on quite the bootie kick – no pun intended; thus, I need these in my life…luckily, they should be here any day now!

But enough about moi; let’s talk about…vous. Time to give me the lowdown on your life, lovers! What are you up to this week?


Fashionably yours!

Great new post! The poison apple nails sound incredible, I have to give that a try!
Those booties at Target are incredible as well! xo

Ginger said...

Great idea for a series! I love finding out that you love nail polish as much as I do! And I always love Gossip Girl but particularly Blair just because I wanted to smack Serena all of season 2. And I just love Leighton (except in her Going the Distance role at the very beginning of the movie. she did NOT look her best there)

Collette Osuna said...

This will be soooo cool!! Looking forward to it:)

thebankofmylife said...

Ah, the Secret Garden. That brings me back to when I was a little girl. I hope you're having a good day, Mon Cherie.

Anaiz said...

House of Harlow rocks. I've been watching/reading a lot of Jane Austen lately, but I cannot seem to find Pride and Prejudice (w/Keira Knightly) at any store I visit :(

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

What a fun feature! I'll be looking forward to these each week :)

And can I just say, coming from an Avon/mark representative, that I love that you wear/use mark makeup! I assume you have a rep taking care of you, but if you ever want to shop my store, let me know! :)

Oh no, I wrote you a long response but I think it got eaten up! But the short of it was that this is my new favorite feature! :)

Sherin said...

I'm going to love reading this feature every week!
I loved The Secret Garden. The illustration on the cover is so cute.

The Blonde Duck said...

The Secret Garden is one of my favorite books.

ryan said...

LOVE that photo, I am a huge GG fan. xoxo

Toutou Ly said...

I love how you mix together affordable pieces. I'm gonna confess that I bought some of Miley Cyrus' clothes for the first time not too long ago from Wal Mart-- for the best prices ever. No one would ever think they were from there anyway, so why not buy something more affordable, right? :]

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

glamourizing--love it! this is super cool. i'm also still adoring double finger rings!

Be sure to enter my Jewelry & Dior Giveaway!

Vanessa said...

Mmm I love that pic! & that quote is amazing too!

Islandia Lane said...

beyond LOVE that photo of Chuck and B - had never seen that one before ::swoon::
I'm loving ANTM tonight! I just love watching the first one to see the new girls and choosing who I think will make the top 3 then watching the last episode to see who actually makes the top 3!
I'm obsessed NYFW starting and FNO is almost here, though I do kinda think it might be a madhouse this year... so much more hype than last year!

lucy and sarah said...

so many beautiful things. where to start..where to start...

ivy's closet said...

So romantic..true modern romance. Thanks for such a cool post.

jess said...

I love the picture. I never read the secret garden.

Grace said...

Haha, I was watching my season 1 dvds the other day! That nail polish sounds super great!

Jessica said...

Forget Season 2, try Season 3! B has sadly gotten very wishy washy. Her drama has hit a level where morals are debatable and growing up is apparently not going to happen. It makes me sad that I have actually gone to team S, since she has moved on from the HS drama. And Little J is even worse.

LOVE YOUR NEW ADDITION DARLING!!

Clare said...

Oh I love Lincoln Park After Dark and paired with that lovely shimmer it is divine! I will definitely try that!

Charlotte said...

i love this feature!! what a great idea!!
it's great to find out more about the girl behind the blog.
I'm tempted to copy you and do something similar on my blog!!
