Wearing: Forever 21 Leatherette Bomber Jacket in Cream; Forever 21 Essential V-Neck Cami in Coral; Forever 21 Classic Skinny Jeans in Medium Denim; Sam Edelman Shalin Faux Fur Boots in Smoke Stack; Rhinestone Arrow Connector Ring via Forever 21.

Reading: City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments Book 2) by Cassandra Clare.

Listening: Fire In Your New Shoes by Kaskade feat. Dragonette. Préparer à tomber dans l'amour!

Adoring: Sandals sporting crisscross applesauce aesthetics a la Diane von Furstenberg’s Ilias Strappy Sandals, Pelle Moda’s Crisscross Pumps in Black and Burlywood, and Tory Burch’s Stripe Elastic Strap Espadrille. Etre toujours mon Coeur! Corsets, corsets, and more corsets! Le Proenza Schouler Corset Wedge Sandals, Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Corset Slip Dress, Rebecca Taylor Quilted Silk Corset Top…there is nothing so coquettish yet classy as a corset, n’est-ce pas? Styles that bring back the innocence of childhood known as…overalls! Oui, je suis obsédé! En haut de ma liste est...Factory by Erik Hart’s Sueded Twill Overalls with Front Zip, See by Chloe’s Chiffon Overalls, and American Apparel’s Thick-Knit Jersey High-Waist Cross-Back Short-All.

I simply cannot get enough of Susy Pilgrim Waters’ stunning illustrations. She has given me l'ultime case of wanderlust. L'amour, l'amour, l'amour! Wildfox’s Sparkle Heart Baggy Beach Top. Sweets? Non. Exotic getaways? Absolument pas! Diamonds? A l'avenir, peut-être. Presently, the true key to my heart is this very top. Pure bliss, mais oui? Besoin!

Quoting: Michelle Williams - “Water – I want to be like water; strong enough to hold up a ship but able to slip through your fingers.”

Awaiting: Revenge of the Witch (The Last Apprentice Series # 1) by Joseph Delaney, Mockingjay (Hunger Games Series # 3 by Suzanne Collins, and The Initiation and The Captive (Part 1) (Secret Circle Series # 1 – 2) by L.J. Smith. Oui, I needed a few new bookie-wookies to add to le ever-burgeoning collection. A girl can never be without reading material, n’est-ce pas?

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!

Love that movie, what a classic ... Can't we all use a fun day off like that every now and then, with someone take attendance wherever we should be, but we're off doing our own thing ... Good times.

I remember seeing Michelle Williams say that on "Nightline." It's one of the best quotes ever. I miss overalls more than anyone, and I'm adoring my iPod right now because it holds my music and music are the keys to all of my great ideas. Hope you have a great day, E. :)

Awesome quote! I love corsets! I wore one to work! blogged about it here: http://fashnlvr.blogspot.com/2010/12/bustier-gap-perfect-trouser.html
It was more like a bustier I guess, but close enough for me!
I need a manicure/pedicure - plan to get one Friday. Not sure if I should go navy or purple or RED!

Sizzling hot chocolate
and coffee with a dash of liquer.
A snowfall
winter in paris
chocolate chaux en hiver
ballet slippers hanging from
the ballet bars
a grammophone left playing
while no ones in the room.

thanks.

Stephanie said...

Michelle Williams is one of my favorite actresses, such a class act.

By the way, I spoke to my family and I received my giveaway winnings. Thank you so much! I can't wait to read it when I come home :)

Eternally yours,

Love this! So chic, especially the outfit. I'm currently rocking yoga pants-- and a little too much! I can't wait for warm weather to wear dresses!

Fashionography. said...

You've now inspired me to paint my nails "Do You Lilac It"! I don't know if you've read Mockingjay or not, but if you haven't you'll LOVE it. :)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

OK I love that quote! Sounds something that's come from a poet, very deep ;)

Fantastic post as always! =) and ooh, I adore Kaskade, such amazing music, great for a late night of studying! And I've heard so many good reviews about the Hunger Games, seems so interesting, might give it a try! :)

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

AH. this is SO embarrassing, but I've never seen Ferris Bueller. SHHH. I mean, I have. But I was, like, ten. Things don't make sense when you're ten. Okay. This is OFFICIALLY on my "to watch" list.

I love the Michelle Williams quote and can't wait to see if you find a great deal on something like the DVF strappy sandals on an upcoming tightwad Tuesday.

p.s. Ferris Bueller is so great!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

amazing, I always love these glimpses into you! And holy hell Erika that quote is amazing- so true, so deep (like water..man, I'm corny). And I just love how you write "Sandals sporting crisscross applesauce"... loves it.

Kavery said...

Great movie choice. The guys at OPI must have fun making up names for their shades

Glass and Splinters said...

I'm wearing faded blue Levi straight leg jeans, T-Shirt, with one of my anodised cuffs and ring. Doesn't sound quite as classy as your outfit!
I'm currently reading Stephen King's "Full Dark, No Stars". I agree we need plenty of reading material!

janettaylor said...

Love the teacup dress!

Rick said...

Alas, I arrive at your blog first thing this morning for a cup of fashion jo, and while still waking up, come across the reference to Ferris. And. His famous day off. Fun, but bad influence. But while it's under your stylish influence, it's all good :)

Oh to Be a Muse said...
