♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Basic V-Neck Top in Taupe; Forever 21 Antique Pendant Necklace; Truck Jeans Gray Stretch Skinny Jean via Alloy; Steve Madden Maryn Boots in Cognac; Ribbed Knit Leg Warmers in Ivory via Sock Dreams; Textured Bangle Set in Gold from Forever 21; Key to Love Double Ring in Gold from Forever 21.

Reading: Envy (Luxe Series # 3) by Anna Godbersen. Devastatingly addicting; Godbersen is truly a literary genius. J’adore times infinité!

Glamourizing: Nails: Essie’s Wicked. Dark, vampy, and divine. Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Sexy. Long-lasting and luscious…amour! Eyes: mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Nomadic.

Listening: Any Fun by Coconut Records. This is one of those rare songs that I am utterly incapable of growing tired of - c'est magnifique!

Adoring: Chilly days spent curled up in chunky knit sweaters a la Ami Dans La Rue’s Cashmere Wide Neck Sweater in Nude. Target’s Cadee Bootie Slippers. I already have them in Tan; now I want them in Brown, Black, and Grey! Afternoon tête-à-têtes at Starbucks, complete with White Chocolate Mochas.

Watching: The Vampire Diaries: The Complete First Season on DVD. Un petit present from ma mere for having graduated from college last week!

Desiring: Haute Hippie Suede Spats with Fringe. I cannot say what, precisely, I need fringed spats for. Nevertheless, I find these incredibly irrésistible, and I want them desperately. Cheap Monday’s Net Tight Skinny Jeans. I am, after all, a child of the 80s – though late; thus, it should come as no surprise that ignoring the lure of acid wash denim in any way, shape, or form is somewhat of a…challenge. Anything and everything Cassette Society – specifically the Acidic Heart Tee Dress. Le simplicity of this line is what makes it all so striking.

Quoting: Oscar Wilde - “The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.”

Awaiting: L.J. Smith’s The Vampire Diaries # 3 - 4: The Fury and Dark Reunion, Nightfall (Vampire Diaries: The Return Series # 1), Shadow Souls (Vampire Diaries: The Return Series # 2), and Anna Godbersen’s Splendor (Luxe Series # 4). Fall is my absolute préféré time of year for curling up with a good book; therefore I have already begun stocking up!

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!
