♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Heritage 1981 Cable Knit Cardigan in Cream via Forever 21; Forever 21 Essential V-Neck Cami in Coral; Forever 21 Denim Hotpants in Medium Denim; Diane von Furstenberg Pandora Wedge Espadrilles in Nude; Forever 21 Rhinestone Arrow Connector Ring.

Reading: Scaredy Kat (Suddenly Supernatural Series # 2) by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel. It may be written with a middle schooler in mind; but I find myself always enthralled to begin a new paranormal adventure with le teenage medium-in-training!

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI's So Many Clowns...So Little Time from the Femme de Cirque Collection. Lips: mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Peek-A-Boo. Eyes: Revlon CustomEyes Shadow & Liner in Naturally Glamorous.

Listening: Crush by Jennifer Paige. L'ultime soundtrack for an impromptu spring fling or saucy summer romance. Download. Listen. Fall in love. Répéter un million de temps sur!

Adoring: Floor-skimming maxi skirts that drape decadently and create the illusion of being a tall drink of water – even if you’re a short stylista (comme moi!). My current favorites…American Apparel’s Chiffon Double-Layered Full Length Skirt (I’ll take one in every color, s'il vous plait!), Winter Kate’s Health Long Floral Skirt, Rachel Pally’s Long Full Skirt, and Oonagh by Nanette Lepore’s Timmy Floor Length Skirt. I believe I am taking it to the max, lovers! Stylish stationary fit for the posh yet playful fashionista a la Cambria Cove’s Fabulous Friends 3 – Sassy Girl – Boxed Cards, Girl Power Boxed Cards, and Fabulous Friends Boxed Cards. The juxtaposition between whimsy and sophistication is enough to make my heart skip a beat. Adorer au dixième pouvoir! Nanette Lepore’s Rain or Shine Skirt and Top Combo. Le premier way for combating gloomy weather, mais oui? Who could possibly resist the bright colors, flouncy hemline, and feminine ruffles? Merely gazing upon its loveliness has put a spring in my step. Ooh, être toujours mon Coeur!

Watching: Ella Enchanted. One of my préféré films (and books – if you haven’t read it, I beg you to do so tout de suite; you will love!). Also one that taught me a très, très important lesson…I have teeny tiny feet; therefore, I must be part fairy!

Desiring: sass & bide The Paradox Flare Jeans in Iceberg Blue. Though the 38” inseam indicates that these would virtually eat me alive; I am still convinced that they are l'exemple de perfection. Haute Hippie’s Marianne Embellished Skirt. Is it just me, or is there something about the aesthetic that gives off a mermaid vibe? Swoon! Je pense que je vous aime! Giuseppe Zanotti’s High Platform Clog Sandals. Oui, ‘tis true that I fall in amour with a new pair of shoes no less than trois times per week; but there is a certain je ne sais quoi about this pair that I find utterly irresistible. Le besoin, le désir, adorer!

Quoting: Paul Coelho - “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

Awaiting: Forever 21 Ripped Shorts with Belt in Dark Denim. A fabulous woven belt can be quite difficult to find; this one came alongside an utterly adorbs pair of shorts. Of course I had to scoop them up. It would have been très wrong of me not to, 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!

I so love Crush by Jennifer Paige!

Joanne said...

I like the look of the maxi skirts. It'll be interesting to see if they really catch on, or if they'll be shortlived. I do see them more as an autumn, winter look though, so we'll see what the fall brings.

StyleID said...

Rain or Shine Skirt and Top Combo: B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L !! I am speechless, I want it now.
Love the shorts you are wearing.

I am addicted to maxi skirts and maxi dresses. Plus, I may wear some hot pants this Summer. My legs love leggings, but I think they need to breathe. Those cards are so adorable, too. I'm such a card freak. Hope you have a good Wednesday, E.

Hahaha I haven't heard that Jennifer Paige song in YEARS!! That song also brings back a very vivid memory because I remember it playing in the car while my dad drove me and my friends to go see The Parent Trap. :P

You know I love these posts Erika! That entire OPI collection - ADORE. I'm wearing a blue OPI shade on my fingertips at the moment - thought I'd try something a little out of the norm. 'Crush' is one of my fave songs! And maxi skirts - just can't get enough of them. Ella Enchanted - I don't have teeny tiny feet, but I still love it! ;)
