♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Fab V-Neck Sweater in Oatmeal; 5-Mock Pocket Jeggings II in Dark Denim via Forever 21; Nine West Convinceme Boot in Medium Brown; Forever 21 Rhinestone Arrow Connector Ring.

Reading: The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games Series # 1) by Suzanne Collins. Despite the fact that I’m a little late in delving into the phenomenon that is Le Hunger Games, I am thoroughly obsessed and cannot wait to get my hand on the sequel! Aimer au dixième pouvoir!

Glamourizing: Nails: Nicole by OPI’s Miss Independent from the Liquid Metals Collection. Le ultimate girly glam color - j’adore! Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Spice. Eyes: mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Surreal.

Listening: Secrets by OneRepublic. Oui, I am in the throes of a love affair with all things OneRepublic at the moment – they are uber talented, consenti?

Adoring: Whimsical tees that proffer a touch of childlike innocence a la Sauce’s Lambs Pullover Top. Cuteness personified, oui? Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony. The sky-high platforms; the flirty frocks; the retro-inspired sunnies… Me pincer; je me sens comme si je suis mort et suis allé au ciel! Itty bitty bikinis with playful geometric prints – specifically, Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Broken Stripe Bandeau Bikini Top and matching Broken Stripe Bikini Bottoms. Watch out cute boys on the beach; you know they’ll never be able to resist!

Watching: I Know What You Did Last Summer. It is very, very possible that this will forever be one of my favorite films. C'est fantastique!

Desiring: 3.1 Phillip Lim Wide Leg Jumpsuit with Open Tie Back. Ooh, be still my heart. Simply having this pretty in one’s closet would make you feel like one of Charlie’s glamorous Angels, mais oui? I die! Ammi Sunglasses from Chloe. I am le queen of falling head over heels for devastatingly expensive sunnies – case in point, the amazing Ammi. Oh, comment je désire pour prendre ces maison à la seconde même - l'amour, l'amour, l'amour! Of Two Minds Jezebel Dress. The shimmer; the babydoll aesthetic...swoon!

Quoting: Charles W. Eliot - “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”

Awaiting: Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. In the last week alone, le nephew has made me sit through the first Scooby Doo film no less than nine times; thus, I think it is high time for us to see the sequel, non?

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!

The Hunger Games series is a great read. Hope you enjoy them all.

Melanie said...

Haha, I Know What You Did Last Summer. That was such a great era for horror films. Both that and Scream were so good.

Omg, I haven't seen "I Know What You Did Last Summer" in forever! That was THE movie to see back in the day. Have fun watching Sarah Michelle Gellar's demise, and looking at Freddie Prinze Jr.!

I Know What You Did Last Summer is suchhh a classic! I remember first seeing it in elementary school and having nightmares... but then re-watching it and loving it. Maybe I'll watch it this weekend!

Joanne said...

Love the Eliot quote, so true. This week, I'm in the midst of lots of writing tasks, from conducting an interview, to writing blog posts, to querying and editing. It's all writing, all the time this week :)

I love that song by One Republic. They are such a good band. The Jezebel dress is so pretty, it's already sold out! I'm scared to go on shopbop.com sometimes because I love everything they have.

Great photo:)

Natasha said...

I really love those Nine West Boots. Plus, I'm probably the only one who thinks SMG and Ryan Phillippe belong together for real. Hope you have a good Wednesday. I wish you could have a snow day with me, but there's always vacations to Chicago or a place in the midwest next winter where you had no idea that there was a snow storm coming and flights were being canceled. *cue innocent face*

AH said...

i love that quote! i'm currently awaiting 'black swan' to finally be released in norway this weekend, can't wait:)

Claire Kiefer said...

I really love reading these! Hunger Games was SO GOOD, although I haven't had the chance to read the other two books yet. And yes to One Republic. They are one poppy cheesy indulgence I am proud to claim! I want a day of reading on the couch . . . but alas, job #2 calls. Hope your day is fantastic!

I love the picture - she is gorgeous. Love the smokey eyes! I currently am fighting the desire to begin sewing for summer spring! 30X30 challenge says no shopping - I don't guess that extends to make it yourself fashion right?

Oh Erika, you have such fabulous taste! I'm a huge fan of One Republic and "Secrets". Ahh, that movie "I know What You Did Last Summer" (along with "Scream) scared me back in the day! I'm a wimp when it comes to any scary movies. :)
