♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Fab V-Neck Sweater in Black; Mossimo Supply Co. Black Leggings via Target; Forever 21 Stunning Mid-Calf Boots in Black (these have an incredible Isabel Marant feel to them – I almost want to buy a second pair!); Alloy Veronique Pendant Necklace (for the record, this is even more magnifique than I expected. Not too long, not too short – pure perfection! If you’re looking for a new accessory, scoop this up immediately; cross my heart you will amour!); and a Chain Trim Faux Tiger Eye Ring from Forever 21.

Reading: The Debutante Divorcee by Plum Sykes. How anyone can possibly resist Plum is a mystère to me; I adore her – and this book!

Glamourizing: Nails: Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl Collection Nicole…Spotted layered over Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl Collection Too Rich For You a la Scrangie’s recommendation. I die at the intergalactic/outer space vibe the combination!) Lips: mark Shimmer Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint. Eyes: Maybelline New York The Colossal Volum’ Express. I literally swear by this mascara – it is phenom; though I’d love to give Volum’ Express the Falsies a whirl très, très soon.

Listening: One Week of Danger by The Virgins. At least one time per month I develop un petit obsession with this song and play it on loop – the time, obviously, is now, my loves!

Adoring: Carine Roitfeld’s Twitter Feed. Glamorous and full of words of wisdom – really now, what more could you possibly ask for? Salted Caramel Mochas. Sweet and salty is the best combination; thus the reason I dip my fries in my chocolate milkshake at In-N-Out! Daisy Lowe. Gah! Pretty please with cherries on top can I be her? And have her hair. And, perhaps, a slice of her wardrobe. Specifically, the Louis Vuitton Bowtie Platform Heels. Fabuleux!

Watching: Cruel Intentions. Given the fact that I have only just recently completed Choderlos de Laclos’ Les Liaisons Dangereuses - of which this film is said to be loosely based upon – I felt that I had to see it. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe…I think this may be my new guilty pleasure – in my world, it ranks right up there with Chocolate Covered Gummy Bears.

Desiring: Sigerson Morrison Long Cuff Suede Over the Knee Boots. Please bear with me, darlings; I’m in the throes of a Carrie Bradshaw-inspired “Hello, lover!” moment. Never before, in the entirety of my life, have I thought that I needed a pair of red shoes; until now. I am unsure of how much longer I will survive without these gems in my wardrobe! Nubar’s Chocolate Truffles Collection. The shades may be from 2009; but ohmigosh there is truly no more perfect arsenal of hues for fall. Cherry Cordial, Chocolate Caramel, Raspberry Truffle, Milk Chocolate Crème, and Chocolate Coffee Bean…gorgeous and delicious – plus, no calories to worry about. Le besoin, le besoin, le besoin - tout de suite! Gossip Girl: The Complete Third Season - Gossip Girl on DVD is nothing short of a necessity in every glamorous gal’s life – period.

Quoting: Roy R. Gilson - “It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.”

Awaiting: Dylan’s Candy Bar: Unwrap Your Sweet Life by Dylan Lauren. I just pre-ordered my copy; October 5 cannot come soon enough! Candy. Fashion. New York City. It’s a combination that sugar-filled dreams are made of. Pinch me, I think I’ve died and gone to heaven!

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!

I loved Plum Skye's books. I don't know if they're realistic to someone's life, but they're hilarious. I think I loved Berdorf Blondes even more ... I still can't figure out how she could text during sex.

OMG! You have my head spinning with this post. Your outfit is affordable yet chic (I die for V-Necks), you're watching one of my fave movies and those LV Bowtie Platform Heels almost made me faint. Keep 'em coming. I hope you have a good day.

P.S: I usually pass up sales for the same reason.
