♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Open Crochet Poncho in Taupe; Forever 21 Essential V-Neck Cami in Nude; Forever 21 Ripped Shorts w/ Belt in Dark Denim; Pelle Moda Yaritza Platform Sandal in Cuoio; House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring in Gold; Forever 21 Interlocking Bangle Set in Gold.

Reading: Espresso Shot (Coffeehouse Mysteries No. 7) by Cleo Coyle. There are two words to describe this book series, my loves…frothy and fabulous. Read. Now.

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI’s Magic from the Designer Series. Le name says it all. A few coats and you have celestial bliss on your fingertips. J’adore! Even if you’re not a fan of blue lacquers you le devoir, le devoir, le devoir try this immediately! Lips: mark Lots of Lacquer Hook Up Super Color Lip Gloss in Thrill. Eyes: mark Mini Mark It Stick Hook Up Stick for Eyes in Cocoa Bean.

Listening: Inside Out by Britney Spears. Why yes, I do have une petite obsession with Ms. Spears. Then again, who doesn’t, J'ai raison?

Adoring: Turban-esque headbands which add a touch of bohemian whimsy juxtaposed with effortless elegance to one’s current look du jour a la Diane von Furstenberg’s Steffie Headband, Eugenia Kim’s Chiara Turban Headband, and Gold Saturn’s collection of Turband’s. Chic cover-ups that make lounging poolside or traipsing through resort towns on impromptu shopping sprees a truly glamorous affair, specifically Diane von Furstenberg’s Krystle Cover-Up in Warm River Leopard, Indah’s Kamani Butterfly Cover Up in Black, and mon préféré personnel Michael Kors’ Wraparound Cover Up Dress in White. Je meurs! Jumpsuits. Last year it was rompers; this year I am défaillir over full-fledged jumpsuits. Thakoon’s Button Front Long Jumpsuit, Rachel Pally’s Nantucket Jumpsuit, American Apparel’s Tri-Blend Pocket Jumpsuit. Hello, lovers!

Watching: The Princess Diaries. Oui, I am on quite the princess kick as of late. And, of course, I am incapable of resisting Robert Schwartzman as Michael Moscovitz. Swoon!

Desiring: Young Fabulous & Broke’s Sierra Pants. Swoon! Je suis obsédé with the harem-like aesthetic created by the flared hemline and miniskirt overlay. Black, Sepia, Crème…I’ll take a pair in every color, s'il vous plait! Oscar the Third’s Trapeze Dress. There is a certain je ne sais quoi about this frock that juxtaposes playful childlike innocence with grown-up sophistication that I simply cannot resist. Aimer l'amour! Chris Benz’s Lilian Cocktail Dress. There are no words to describe the fabulosity of this frock; simply take a gander and fall in love. Salut, je vous adore.

Quoting: Paulo Coelho - “In fairytales, the princesses kiss the frogs, and the frogs become princes. In real life, the princesses kiss princes, and the princes turn into frogs.”

Awaiting: Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat by Gwen Cooper, All Things Wise and Wonderful by James Herriot, and The Rules According to JWOWW: Shore-Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition to the Curb by Jenni JWOWW Farley. As Cicero once said, “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” My room was running a bit low on books; therefore, I felt the time had come to replenish.

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!

StyleID said...

I adore what you are adoring .... the first time I saw the turban on someone's look I was like "that is not for me" but in the past week I've seen so many cool looks with it that now that the turban and I 'broke the ice' I think that is my next purchase .... you always select the best cute things, also loving the Kamani Butterfly Cover Up.

My Heart Blogged said...

I'm loving the Chris Benz dress. Anytime I need a confidence boost I just play a Britney song. I mean she is a legend. All I need is I'm a Slave for you or Boys to get me in a dancing mood.

Those Sierra pants are so cute! You inspire me with all your reading, I don't know when I became the world's slowest reader--slow to pick up the book that is...

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I was just at F21 yesterday afternoon and I tried on that poncho!! Unfortunately I looked like a giant potato in it. Sigh.

And yay for Princess Diaries! One of the best films EVER. I could watch it every day. :P

Clare said...

Those Sierra pants look sooo comfy!!

(I could use a late night trip to the buffet right about now too. Feelin' like some pancakes...lol)

karen said...

oh, I need to watch the Princess Diaries. I've had that on my to-watch list for a very long time!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

honestly, your WRITING is fashionable!! it's so couture in itself. But on to the goods... loving the headbands you mentioned. I really do not think I can pull them off (have tried many a time but they always float up my head and away ... ) but I so want to, I love that look! Also, I read JWoww's book last week. It took me 2 gym workouts- moral of the story, easiest read ever. I must say though, if you look past the obvious goofiness of it, there's a lot of sense in her words! I'm telling you, a good self esteem book.

Leia said...

Ooh the coffeehouse mysteries sound like such fun! I love the Princess Diaries too, I should watch them again :)
