♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Leatherette Bomber Jacket in Cream; Forever 21 Essential V-Neck Cami in Grey; 5-Mock Pocket Jeggings II in Dark Denim via Forever 21; Nine West Convince Me Boot in Medium Brown; House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring.

Reading: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I was truly unaware of just how much I missed Katniss and the crew until delving into the devilishly delicious pages of this tome. Amour!

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Alpine Snow. Lips: mark Shine Tubes Hook Up Lip Gloss in Marshmallow. Eyes: mark Mini Mark It Stick Hook Up Stick for Eyes in Cocoa Bean.

Listening: Love Is Colder Than Death by The Virgins. Download. Listen. Repeat.

Adoring: Diane von Furstenberg Eva Scarf Tie Platform Sandals. I honestly believe that DVF is trying to bleed my bank account dry with this creation; ils sont véritablement trop magnifiques pour les mots! Mushroom, Sea Dust, Black, Citron – I will gladly accept them in any and all shades. Me les donner maintenant, s'il vous plait! Oliver Peoples Eyewear. Le darling Donyale; zippy Zaya; luscious Lainie…if you hadn’t noticed (though I’m sure that you have), Mr. Peoples is the reigning king of sassy sunnies – he can do no wrong. L'amour chronomètre l'infinité! American Apparel’s Cotton Spandex Jersey Cross-V Bodysuit. From jazzercise to shopping sprees, girls nights on the town and quiet days spent on the couch (with Carrie and the girls, of course!) this is le preemptive piece for one’s wardrobe - Je suis obsédé au dixième pouvoir!

Watching: The Virgin Suicides - yet another Sofia Coppola masterpiece. Un petit conseil...if you’ve seen the film, you must read the book by Jeffrey Eugenides; if you’ve read the book, you must see the film. And if you’ve neither read the book or seen the film you must do so tout de suite! Both are captivating, enchanting, charming, and simplement irresistible!

Desiring: Vince Sequin Top. In the words of Gossip GirlO.M.G. It is official; my entire existence is incomplete until this sassy sequin top is a part of my wardrobe. I shall pair it with winter white skinny jeans and sky-scraping wedge heels. C'est l'exemple d'exquisiteness, mais oui? Ooh, I have chills! True Religion Morgan Wide Leg Flare Jeans in Sunbleached LT. Hello, loverrrr. Where have you been all my life, darling? Torn by Ronny Kobo’s Sally Striped Dress. There is a certain je ne sais quoi to this flirty frock that makes me want to set sail (despite the fact that I get seasick, and am unable to swim – shhhh…c'est notre petit secret!). Swoon!

Quoting: Jodi Picoult - “Extraordinary things are always hiding in places people never think to look.”

Awaiting: Charles David Kini in Camel Suede. Though I own countless pairs of wedge sandals; these shall be mon très premièrement pair of espadrilles. I simply could not resist the sassy ankle ties and skin-toned color. Gorgeous, 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!

I'm adoring those DVF platforms. Tres Magnifique. My favorite Sofia Coppola is Lost In Translation. As for what I'm adoring, I'm adoring the all natural sodas from Whole Foods. I'm adoring some of the latest songs from Ingrid Michaelson and Adele, and I'm adoring Glee. Hope you have a great day, sweets.

I tried watching The Virgin Suicides about 5 years ago because of my love for Josh Hartnett and I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I should try again..?

Isn't Catching Fire awesome?
I'm interested: who do you think should play Katniss? :D

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

Virgin Suicides is easily one of my favorite movies. Josh Hartnett is one stone fox, ha! Take care.

Daina Miller said...

Your Jodi Picoult quote is amazing... taking the time to appreciate the journey (no matter how tough) almost always leads to more amazing things than you could have imagined in the first place.

Love your blog!

Those Eva Scarf Tie Platform Sandals in Mushroom are gorgeous, but I'd be concerned the tie on the bows would drag on the ground!
