♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Mossimo Supply Co. Sweater Jacket in Grass; Forever 21 Fab Basic Knit Top in Taupe; Mossimo Supply Co. Skinny Jean – Medium Wash; Sam Edelman Shalin Faux Fur Boots in Smokestack Gray; Forever 21 Key to Love Double Ring.

Reading: The Vampire Diaries: Dark Reunion by L.J. Smith. Le final book in the quartet. Such a bittersweet undertaking, if you ask me – I am both thrilled to see what happens next; yet I loathe the fact that the series is coming to an end.

Glamourizing: Nails: Essie Mink Muffs. Lips: mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Sweet Talk. Eyes: mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven.

Listening: Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt. I have developed quite the…codependency on this song. I accomplish very little unless it is playing in the background. J’adore!

Adoring: Faux fur boot covers a la Steve Madden’s M24053 and M24050 - j’adore the idea of being able to change the entire aesthetic of any boot in my collection merely by slipping one over the shaft. Brilliant, non? Holiday drinks at Starbucks. The Caramel Brulee Latte; the Toffee Mocha; the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Yes. Please. Lurrrrve! Platform Booties – specifically Dolce Vita’s Vanessa; Opening Ceremony’s Racer; Diane von Furstenberg’s Famke Shearling; and Sam Edelman’s Vancouver Lace Up. ‘Tis the season for sassy shoes, lovers!

Watching: Gossip Girl - Season 2. I think I should love to have Cyrus Rose as my stepfather a la Blair Waldorf. He is très fabuleux, non?

Desiring: American Apparel’s Cotton Spandex Jersey Double U-Neck Dress. Le minimalism is tres magnifique - I want one in every color! GUESS Obelize. There are no words to describe the amount of fear that wells up within me at the sight of that heel; but ohmigosh Je suis dans l'amour! Have you ever before seen such beauty? Elegance? Sophistication? And, above all else, ferocity? I think not! Le besoin, le besoin, avoir besoin de!! Dolce Vita Joelle Platform Booties in Olive. Why, oh why, are you no longer available in my size, my loves? I had such fabulously fashionable plans for the two of us! Le sigh. Quoi que sera, sera - I suppose.

Quoting: Scott Hamilton - “The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”

Awaiting: Toy Story 3’s Big Roarin’ Rex. Non, this is not a gift for moi; rather, it is for my two-year-old nephew whom fell in love with it at first roar. He will adore it – as he should; you would never believe what I went through to find this thing – it is literally sold out at every store!

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!

Ohh! I JUST bought Mink Muffs and love the color for the season!!

Natasha said...

Ugh! I hate coming to an end of a book series, and Eartha Kitt's voice is addictive. Happy Wednesday.

Krystal said...

the wearing links...are a perfect outfit!

The Favour Shoppe said...

I heard that it was a difficult toy to get this year!! But I love him too! or rather my kids do... ;)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Yay for listening to Santa Baby and reading The Vampire Diaries!

Joanne said...

I'm on the hunt for skinny jeans. They're perfect for wearing with boots, but this year I'm not finding them! All I'm seeing are either jeggings or straight legs, neither of which have the fit I'm looking for :/

Lex said...

The salted caramel hot chocolate is my favorite too! Since they brought it back i have developed a full blown addiction!

Megan said...

I love Gossip Girl! Blair is one of my style icons.

Joanne: I found skinny jeans that are NOT jeggings at Forever 21. They have studs all the way down the leg and gives them an edgy feel. Costs $25. Good luck in your hunt!!
Wearing: Items that push the envelope, such as argyle sweater tights, openwork scroll tights by Steve Madden, a bustier over a dress shirt to the office!
Glamourizing: Considering a serious trim to my hair which is difficult for me. I can't stand to cut off much but I have reached a stall in length :~S and I want to grow it to my waist so I think a good trim may be in order.

I had no clue you are an Aunt! I bet you're the best one out there! Giving him Rex is such an awesome gift.

Leia said...

I haven't read Vampire Diaries but I absolutely love watching the show (Damon is swoon-worthy!) Although I know how bittersweet it is to come to the end of a series.

I love Santa Baby! Such a good song. Eartha Kitt had such a fabulous voice!

And that double U neck dress is awesome! I have one in three colors! So versatile and comfortable.

Wow, so many sweet things. I do have a crisis at work when it comes to leggins and skinny jeans. My boss if pretty upset when I come in skinny jeans. I have to practically wear a dress with them.

Oh I didn't realize the Vampire Diaries were books (I should've guessed). Are they any good? And I LOVE that quote btw!

She is Sara said...

Erika every time I read these, I love you even more!!! I only listen to Ertha Kit's version of Santa Baby! I looooove her and I always watch "The Emperor's new groove" because she does the voice of the cat! :P

Ohhh how are the Mossimo skinny jeans? I have wanted to by some for ages!!

meg said...

From the very start..I love everything in the post.

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

It all sounds very lovely--those Starbucks drinks are sooo decadent--I love them! p.s. I actually picked up a sweet bulky gray sweater from Target after I saw a post you did on their sweaters recently. Hope your week continues to be a good one!
