♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Rib Knit Collar Bomber in Black; Forever 21 Fab Striped Sweater Top in Black/Cream; Xhilaration Seamed Legging in Black via Target; Alloy Maxie Boot in Black; Owl Face Ring in Black/Silver via Forever 21.

Reading: I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. Gah! If loving books is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Seriously. Je suis dans l'amour avec ce livre! Now release the sequel tout de suite, s'il vous plait! I may die if I don’t find out what happens next!

Glamourizing: Nails: Essie Mint Candy Apple. Lips: mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Peek-A-Boo. Eyes: Maybelline New York Cover Stick Corrector Concealer in Ivory.

Listening: Stuttering by Fefe Dobson. Trois acclamations for Fefe’s comeback - aimer l'amour her music!

Adoring: American Apparel’s Nylon Spandex Stretch Lace Long Sleeve Mini Dress in Crème, Black, Pink, Dusk, or Navy. The quintessential coquettish piece for testing le art of seduction; wouldn’t you agree, mes amours? Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathons. If ever I am permitted the chance to indulge in a second life, I should like to be reincarnated as one Ms. Buffy Summers. No hero and/or heroine could ever hold a candle to le slayer herself. Amore! Ballerina-inspired accoutrements that make one long to dance and twirl like an enchanted Sugar Plum Fairy a la BCBGMAXAZRIA’s Tulle Tutu Skirt, BCBGMAXAZRIA’s Lace Dress with Draped Skirt, and Club Monaco’s Olga Tulle Skirt.

Watching: Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Un petit confession, lovers…I still have my Cindy Lou Who Doll, and would not part with her for anything in le world. J’adore both her and the film itself!

Desiring: Velvet’s Dixon Ombre Sequin Cardigan. Already I am in possession of a sequin miniskirt and top; a sequin cardigan would round out my sparkly wardrobe quite well, mais oui? Pretty Little Liars Season 1 DVD Boxset. I have already read the books; now I devoir see the show! Trouve Alliance Wedge Bootie. Do I need? Non! Do I want? Oui, chronomètre l'infinité!

Quoting: Voltaire - “It is not enough to conquer; one must also know how to seduce.”

Awaiting: Alloy’s Cullen Boot in Taupe. A good over the knee boot is hard to come by, mais oui? I thought that these looked spectacular; therefore, they are now on their way to my welcoming arms. Amour!

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!

I am so back into the writing routine now that the holidays are over! It feels good to have my schedule back and be here at the keyboard. Happy New Year Erika, and raising my coffee cup in a 2-Year Anniversary toast to your blog ... Cheers :)

BUFFFFFFFFFFFY. For one of my English Honors classes my last year at college, I took Women Warriors (feminist lit class). My final thesis was on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. HOLLA.

Good over the knee boots ARE so hard to find--and I'm 5'11, so they're always too short. I just scored a pair from Nordstrom Rack for like 50 bucks, and they are well over my knee. They must be thigh highs. Awkwardddddd but I love them.

I'm in LOVE with those Alloy boots. FUN! Great color too.

Natasha said...

E, if you knew how much I admired Buffy. Ah, the Buffy love never ceases. Alas, I know for sure that I would look totally awkward in the American Apparel Spandex Dress. As for the boots. I wish I could wear heels as much as you do. Jealous! Have a good Wednesday!

P.S: You need a blog button so I could put it on my blog.

The Cullen boot is amazing...I absolutely love it!

I love that Voltaire quote! My favourite, though, is probably how he responded to a request to renounce Satan on his deathbed with "My dear man, this is no time for making enemies"

Hi doll! thanks for the mention...
Amber Gray is absolutely my favorite photographer ever. That is one of my favorite photos of hers.

This week is full of "lasts" for me- lots of last coffees with friends and last day at work, last day going here and there- its all a bit dreary if I weren't going to paradise in a few :)

Love your post as always!!!
