♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Knit Sweater Top in Pink; Forever 21 Essential V-Neck Cami in White; Forever 21 Denim Hotpants in Light Denim; Charles David Kini Espadrille in Camel Suede; House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring.

Reading: Free Gift with Purchase: My Improbable Career in Magazines and Makeup by Jean Godfrey-June. Love makeup? You will absolutely adore this - traverser mon Coeur!

Glamourizing: Nails: Nicole by OPI’s My Lifesaver. ‘Tis the epitome of minty freshness - j’adore! Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Swell layered over mark Pro Glimmer Hook Up Lip Powder in Peek. Eyes: mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven (Black).

Listening: Till the World Ends by Britney Spears. Salut, je vous adore!

Adoring: Oversized floppy sunhats that add a touch of mystérieux to any and all ensembles - le Rodarte for Opening Ceremony Tom Petty Felt Hat, American Apparel’s Wool Floppy Hat, and mon préféré actuel, the Floppy Rafia Sunhat from Bop Basics. I would gladly accept one in either color – Natural or Tobacco. Evanouissement! Diane von Furstenberg. Though I have always adored her, this season has been better than ever before! The shoes – specifically, the Pandora Wedge Espadrilles, and Theia Platform Wedge Sandals; the clothes – swoon at the Alysa Cover Up Romper and Odanda Shorts; the bags – I die at the Lytton Small Printed Snake Clutch. Je l'aime tous plus que les mots peuvent commencer à décrire meme! OPI’s Texas Collection. Between the sorbet-like finish of the colors, and the kitschy monikers (Guy Meets Gal-veston anyone?) what’s not to love?

Watching: Serendipity. Swoon! Methinks I have a new favorite movie!

Desiring: Opening Ceremony’s Cork Print Shorts. Le seventies silhouette is incredibly hard for me to resist. I need these in my life tout de suite; my many platform sandals are incredibly lonely without them! 291’s Satisfaction Lightweight Sweatshirt. The juxtaposition of casual, coquettish, and saucy in the aesthetic is extrêmement magnifique, mais oui? So perfect for a day spent blading and eating ice cream on the boardwalk with a cute boy. Amour! Opening Ceremony’s Violet Knot Wedge Sandals. The cutout in the wooden wedge heel makes these a true work of art. I am aimer the indigo shade.

Quoting: Mark Twain - “Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Awaiting: Forever 21's Open Crochet Poncho in Taupe. My very first poncho purchase ever; I am literally counting down the seconds until it arrives! L'amour chronomètre l'infinité!

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!

Ooo, I love Serendipity as well. It's a great movie. Although, my new favourite movie is Tamara Drewe. I saw it on the plane yesterday and fell in love with it.

Joanne said...

I love that Mark Twain quote. Even if we only do so here and there, throwing off the bowlines and sailing away from the safe harbor, it's always worth it to follow our heart.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

I just love AAs floppy hat too!! I want to order it, but can't seem to bring myself to spend so much on a hat.... We'll see, I'm sure I'll break.

Another wonderful post. Everyone should live life by Mark Twain's quote...it's so true.

Serendipity is so so good! I also love the floppy hat look. Need to get one of those. I normally sport the fedora but maybe it's time to mix it up!

Cafe Fashionista -
In the photo at the top of this posting - do you know what the bag in the photo is? I've been looking for a bag just like that! Thanks!!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i am adoring what you're adoring and wearing both a floppy hat and rodarte dress in my latest post.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Love floppy hats, espadrilles, and Serendipity!

madeleine said...

Oooohhh my. Serendipity is definitely one of my favorite movies, but I'm also a John Cusack fan. Love anything OPI. They make any color look fabulous, and the names?! Don't even get me started on the cute names.

Stay classy,
Madeleine

Cafe Fashionista said...

To Anonymous...the bag is from Longchamp. This is a photograph from their new ad campaign, so I believe that it may be a bag from the current/upcoming collection. :)

Artdecodiamonds said...

Love mark twain..the necklace is cool and funky.
