♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Fab V-Neck Sweater in Oatmeal; Forever 21 Sequin Glam Mini; Nine West Convinceme Boots in Medium Brown; House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring in Gold.

Reading: Remember Me (Remember Me Series # 1) by Christopher Pike.

Glamourizing: Nails: Orly Lunar Eclipse. A supernatural shade to welcome in le New Year, mais oui? Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Sexy. Best. Lip color. Ever! Sérieusement. Eyes: CoverGirl Line Exact Liquid Liner in Very Black.

Listening: Umbrella by Rihanna. Oui, the torrential rains that have plagued Southern California over the past few weeks do have un petit to do with my present obsession with this song; nevertheless, J'adore à jamais!

Adoring: Rugged, lace-up, mountain man-esque boots with faux fur detailing and chunky heels. In other words, the Lucky Brand Eve. At le moment I covet these boots with every fiber of my being – especially in the French Roast hue. J’adore! Erin Bried’s How to Sew a Button: And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother Knew. The old-fashion charm simply oozes from its pages; there is no doubt in my mind that Mrs. Cleaver herself would thoroughly approve of this pocket-sized gem! The reincarnation of one of my favorite shoes ever – the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Luella - a la the heavenly Jagger Zip Front Wedge Sandal. It may not be Luella; but I will gladly accept le jazzy Jagger in both Butterscotch and Natural. Size 5 ½, s'il vous plait!

Watching: Serendipity. This should explain my sudden desire to go ice skating with a devastatingly cute boy, and indulge in Frozen Hot Chocolate at none other than Serendipity 3 in New York City. Aimer l'amour!

Desiring: Dolce Vita Minnie High Heel Boots in Brown and Natural. When a boot is as fabuleux as these, buying two colors is not excessive…it’s necessity. Amour! Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 1 on DVD. Let me reiterate that…it’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer…enough said. Oliver Peoples Eyewear Zaya Sunglasses. Oh, to have enough spare cash to snag them in both glorious colors – Cocobolo and Black. Le sigh.

Quoting: Gossip Girl - “There are songs that make us want to dance, songs that make us want to sing along. But the best songs are the ones that pull you back to the moment you first heard them. And once again, break your heart.”

Awaiting: I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore, City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments Series # 1) by Cassandra Clare, and Kiki Strike: The Empress’s Tomb by Kirsten Miller. Hibernating for the winter is utterly impossible without a stack of fabueleux new books (and a mug of Toffee Mocha from Starbucks) by one’s side, mais oui?

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!

Once I read the words "Toffee Mocha" I had an instant urge to run out and get one. It was almost primal.. lol ;)

Natasha H. said...

You're going to love Cassandra Clare's books. I was sucked into them. I haven't read I am Number Four Yet, but I'm interested in it. So far, I have Buffy season 4, 6 and 7 boxed sets. I'm looking forward to getting seasons 1, 2, 3, and 5, as well as season 1 of Roswell. Happy Wednesday, E.

Grace said...

OMG, I love you for posting that Gossip Girl quote--one of my favorites! I'm currently reading "William and Kate: A Royal Love Story" by Christopher Andersen. A guilty pleasure read, but sooo good!

My Heart Blogged said...

That nail polish is amazing. You always find the best stuff. You totally need to find a cheaper alternative to those sunglasses. I know you can, because your are amazing at it.

Eternally yours,
Stephanie
