♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Mossimo Supply Co. V-Neck Hoodie in Myth Blue (it’s un peu long on my five-foot-one-and-a-half frame, therefore I wear it as a mini-dress/tunic); Mossimo Supply Co. Full Legging in Ebony; Steve Madden Maryn in Black; Lola and George Reef Ring (if you have yet to discover the wonderment that is Lola and George, please do so now – each and every piece is stupéfiant!); Veronique Pendant Necklace via Alloy.

Reading: The Vampire Diaries: The Fury by L.J. Smith. Very rarely do I…devour a book series so quickly; thus, it is quite evident how much j’adore this one.

Glamourizing: Nails: Nicole by OPI Too Rich For You from the Gossip Girl Collection. Lips: Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Swirl Lip Gloss in Ice Teased. Eyes: mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Minx.

Listening: Armistice by Phoenix. I will forever be obsédé with this song. Also, there’s something about the lyrics that makes me think of The Vampire Diaries. I think this song may need to be added to the soundtrack. Just un petit suggestion.

Adoring: Xhilaration’s Faux Shearling Bomber Jacket in Dark Brown via Target. The photographs don’t do this bit of blissful outerwear justice; I picked mine up last week and feel like I’m strutting down the Burberry catwalk alongside Lily Donaldson whenever I put it on. J’adore! Paula Deen. Gah! She is cuteness personified. I want to be a part of her family; or she a part of mine – same diff! Holiday inspired nail polish collections a la China Glaze’s ‘Tis the Season to Be Naughty and Nice. Party Hearty, Mommy Kissing Santa, Sugar Plums, Naughty and Nice, Midnight Kiss, Cheers to You, Jolly Holly, Mistletoe Kisses, Phat Santa, Ruby Deer, Mrs. Claus, Peace On Earth, Frosty, Snow, Jingle Bells, and Little Drummer Boy…ummm, hello…with lacquer monikers such as those it is absolutely no surprise that I should need them all. Merry Early Christmas to moi!

Watching: Nancy Drew…Reporter - the black and white original from 1939. I found it for a quarter at Target a few years back and never got around to watching it. Now that I have, I want to be the roving girl reporter (and amateur sleuth!) more than ever!

Desiring: ADAM Aviator Jacket with Shearling Collar – hello gorgeous. This jacket makes me foam at the mouth - non, I am most certainly pas joking. Bored to Death: The Complete First Season. Jason Schwartzman. Brooklyn. Unlicensed private eyes. Enough said. Dolce Vita Vanessa Suede Platform Booties in Grey. The jury’s still out on whether or not I’d be able to walk in these marvels (the heel is tout à fait high); but ohmigosh I besoin them with every fiber of my being!

Quoting: Randy Pausch - “When it comes to men who are romantically interested in you, it’s really simple. Just ignore everything they say and only pay attention to what they do.”

Awaiting: Sam Edelman’s Naharra Piped High Heel Boot. I couldn’t decide between Graphite Leather or Whiskey Leather, so I splurged and bought them both!

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!

And I am trying to figure out what to be for Halloween...I'm thinking maybe Cleopatra?!

Dancing Branflake said...

I'm also 5'2! Us shorties need to go on a shopping trip to Target! And do you like the Vampire diaries? I mean, would you recommend it to someone who hasn't read any vampire anything?

Maddy said...

I love that quote you picked!! So so true!! I would've saved myself a lot of heartache if I lived by that rule.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

If you like The Vampire Diaries you should definitely read Alyson Noel's Immortals series, you'd like it!

anhesty said...

Nancy Drew was cool from the70's too.

FASHION SNAG said...

oh my, I used to read all the Nancy Drew books. I checked out every damn one from our little town library. They had the hardcover and I liked that. I used to want to be her.

Cindy Whitehead said...

Nancy Drew - I do need to watch that - she was the original "cool" girl - way before Nikita and all these other shows (-:

fashion junkie said...

Wow!! I read all the Nancy Drew books!!
This quote is fantastic by the way. I love it!

xoxo,
MelRod

Rae said...

:) I also am coveting that lovely aviator jacket... now that I live in a place that actually has a winter, perhaps I can justify something like that <3

Leia said...

There's a Nancy Drew MOVIE? I need to see this!!

Joanne said...

I love the bomber jackets this time of year. They are the perfect fall look, with a little attitude thrown in too.

Natasha said...

I adore your entire outfit today, including those Steve Madden boots. Tres Magnifique. Hope you have a good one, sweets.

ellie said...

So love the gossip girl nail polish collection! So who's your favorite vampire now? I have to say I have never seen anyone more confident in his vamping role than Ian Somerhalder as Damien.

ivy's closet said...

What a selection! So much to savor in today's post.

The Blonde Duck said...

I love Nancy Drew! I was obsessed with her books when I was little!

AH said...

that ring is gorgeous!! i'm still waiting for my vampire diaries books, but it's probably for the best, as i really should spend my time studying...

better days said...

Amazing necklace. So many pretty things.

fashion trends said...

I really love your Fashionably Moi feature!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I saw that Xhiliration bomber jacket today- I like the light brown!

Sara said...

Love those Sam Edelman boots! I'm trying to find the perfect pair of boots myself.

Grace said...

I love the boots you have on-I've been searching for wedge boots myself, actually. And I love the band Phoenix!!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Omgggg now you have me obsessed with that Phoenix song!! LOL! And I desperately want a cheaper version of that aviator jacket. I have been searching for one for AGES!! I want to find one before fall ends. Sigh. :P

Erin said...

Those Sam Edelman boots are gorgeous, and I don't consider that a splurge. You NEED to have boots in both black and brown! That way one of them will always match.
And thanks for the comment, I feel like me and wide legs are going to become good friends :)

MarchMusings said...

I've heard so much about the Vampire Diaries but haven't yet succumbed. Perhaps now is the right time?

MissNeira said...

That bomber jacket is adorable! want!

jess said...

I love Phoenix.

Punctuation Mark said...

i've been thinking about getting the series... love the show and have read all sookie's books... hope you're having a nice one!

Clare said...

Ahhh! I have "Too Rich for You"!! The name kills me, I just had to buy it!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Thanks for the recommendations dear - now I really want to read the Vampire Diaries!

Rachel said...

The Lola and George ring, the ADAM jacket, and the Dolce Vita booties... Love, love, LOVE! And those Sam Edelman boots? Perfect! I'm sure they'll look fabulous on you!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

I had no idea you were so tiny! This is a great season for your height. Everything fits like a tunic and that precisely what leggings need! I'm nearly 5'10" and NOTHING fits like a tunic. Not even tunics.

I love that you watched the old Nancy Drew movie! Those were some of my favorite books as a kid.

Sherin said...

I am so jealous of your nails right now!! I love the Adam Aviator jacket as well: it's so lovely.

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

Fabulous post. That ADAM jacket will be in my dreams for the forthcoming future, I can already tell!

Don't worry about the Ash boots: I have a pair that look similar and they are pretty comfortable. I'd buy Ash again in a heartbeat!

Panda said...

I love this post! So cute! Ahhh give us a picture of the outfit too, sounds amazing! Oooh, and I'm 5'4, I'm i still in the shorty group aha. Love your blog, Panda xo

The Anthology said...

You're 5 foot 1? You don't look it at all!

What am I up to this week? Relaxing. Just got back from vacation and I always find I need a week to recover.

Krystal said...

that reef ring is prettyyyyyy and glams up the hoody, love it!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Nancy Drew...Reporter sounds like a good movie! I will have to try to find a copy. Also, loving China Glaze Party Hearty nail polish.

Islandia Lane said...

absolutely LOVE that quote - almost the truest thing I've heard in awhile! :-)

Rick said...

Erika,
I so missed being away from "Cafe Fashionista." You were missed, as well as me reading your imaginative posts and storytelling. Love this picture and how much of yourself you share. Hope you are well.
much love,
Rick

She look so lovely from head to toe. Anyway, Mossimo is really fabulous when it comes of their work. I'm so amazed of what she read about The Vampire Diaries. I wanted to read it too.
