♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Basic Racerback Tank in Black; Mossimo Supply Co. Denim Legging – Acid Wash via Target; Zodiac Panda Boot in Black; Forever 21 Antique Pendant Necklace; Rhinestone Panda Ring via Forever 21.

Reading: Mary Poppins in the Kitchen: A Cookery Book with a Story by P.L. Travers. Who better to steal recipes from than Miss Mary Poppins?

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark – this is one of the très few nail colors I will wear for weeks at a time. Lips: mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Peek-A-Boo. Oui, oui, my loves; the nude hue is just as playful as its coquettish moniker - j’adore! Eyes: CoverGirl Line Exact Liquid Liner in Very Black.

Listening: Christmas Don’t Be Late by Alvin & The Chipmunks. Christmas isn’t Christmas without this song; plus, it makes me think of Almost Famous. Amour!

Adoring: Tailored shorts styled over sheer tights and paired with oversized sweaters/ponchos and knee-high boots. L'amour, l'amour, l'amour! Afternoons spent pouring over holiday-themed mail order catalogs from J. Crew, Anthropologie, Nordstrom, and Free People – the usual suspects, to be sure! Eugenia Kim Berets – specifically the quartet of glamorous girls known as Valentina, Madeline, Isla, and Zoe.

Watching: Elf. Un petit confession if you’ll bear with me, lovers…after seeing this film for the first time, I answered my cell phone with “Erika the Elf, what’s your favorite color?” a la Buddy himself for an entire year. Embarrassing, non?

Desiring: Mossimo Supply Co. Wrap Sweater Coat – Charcoal. Chunky, fair isle knits are my weakness; that is all. ROSEGOLD Genie Suede Platform Booties in Taupe. Swoon! The Royal Tenenbaums. I have heard far too many amazing things about this film over the years. Besoin!

Quoting: Carrie Bradshaw - “The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.”

Awaiting: The release of Jessica Schroeder’s Recipes for Style: A Cookbook for Your Closet. I am obsédé with her blog, and just know that I will feel the same about her literary debut. April 2011 cannot come soon enough!

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!

Don't you love fall and winter fashion? I like the sound of those tailored shorts with boots. I liked the look of gauchos a couple years back, too, with the high boots, but am not seeing them anymore :/

Maddy said...

Carrie alway has the right thing to say! And me....I want a hula hoop ;o) I ♥ Alvin and the Chipmunks! And I've never watched Elft, but I hear so many great things about it, that it's definitely going on my holiday movie list!

HAHAHA. One of my friends STILL has her voicemail as "Amanda the elf, what's your favorite color?"
We play along.
I'm thinking of buying her tickets to see the broadway version for christmas.

You just might be getting in the holiday mood here! So love the denim leggings and what a cool necklace too.

Tres fabulous. I'm watching Sex and The City 2 as I'm typing this. Carrie's wardrobe, and apartments, are so wonderful. I die.

glad you listed Lincoln Park After Dark - I am still wearing that shade after 2 1/2 yrs and was thinking I should move on - but I do love it!

Dancing Branflake said...

I'm so glad you liked the picture so much! And seriously, Christmas is here and we should all answer the phone like Buddy. And then sing in a department store.

A La Mode et Plus! said...

These are always my favorite posts of yours! Love the boots you are wearing and those rosegold booties are sooo cute! Totally agree with you about tailored shorts, and I have been hunting for a nice pair myself. Hahaha I LOVE that you answered your cell like that and that is one of my all-time favorite movies! And that carrie bradshaw quote is my favorite :)
Ok, now that I have written a book on your post (lol) have a great day hun!!
