♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Fab Basic Knit Top in Taupe; Forever 21 Denim Hotpants in Medium Denim; Jessica Simpson Jungle in Sesame.

Reading: Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat by Gwen Cooper. Le most enchanting tale one will ever lay hands on. Whether you’re a cat owner or not you must, must, must read this book!

Glamourizing: Nails: Nicole by OPI Not A Gold Bigger. Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Swank. My new go-to shade when I want to add a smidgen of sophistication to my look du jour. Aimer au dixième pouvoir! Eyes: mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Surreal.

Listening: She Said by Stephen Jerzak (feat. Leighton Meester). There are seriously no words to describe how obsessed I am with this song at the moment. J'adore de l'infinité de temps.

Adoring: Trench coats decked out with feminine detailing, and infused with a blend of old-time noir and gritty glamour to help one channel their inner Honey West a la Rebecca Taylor’s Ruffle Duster Trench Coat, Tibi’s Bow Trench Coat, and 3.1 Phillip Lim’s 3.1 Trench Coat with Storm Flap Tie. Admit it, lovers; a part of you has always wanted to be a daring detective, mais oui? Fabulous footwear in nude-tones that make one’s legs go on forever. Les pommes actuelles de mon oeil? Pour La Victoire’s Jaclyn Espadrille Wedges in Nude/Luggage, Dolce Vita’s Talia Fisherman Sandals in Nude, and Diane von Furstenberg’s Pandora Wedge Espadrilles in Nude. L'amour, l'amour, l'amour! Flirty frocks with a seventies flair – specifically, Rebecca Taylor’s Pom Pom Halter Dress and Punched Halter Dress, T-Bags’ Studded Long Dress, and American Apparel’s Vintage Peach Bow Maxi Dress and Vintage Lilac Ruffle Petal Maxi Dress. Methinks l'été d'amour is officially upon us, J'ai raison?

Watching: Tangled. Ooh, I am totes a sucker for fairytales and happily-ever-afters. J’adore!

Desiring: Winter Kate’s Print Cooper Blouse – the saucy juxtaposition of professional (a la the silk-chiffon construction and front-button closure) and playful (courtesy of the print, ruffles, and bell sleeves) is totalment irrésistible, mais oui? Me le donner maintenant! Opening Ceremony’s Button Back Dress. The sheer, black bodice and nude-toned skirt is the most heavenly contrast ever. And let us not forget that adorable collar. Swoon! Halston Heritage’s Dolman Drawstring Top – casual, coquettish, charming, chic…it has it all. Salut, je vous adore!

Quoting: Diego Marchi - “In life we all have an unspeakable secret, an irreversible regret, an unreachable dream, and an unforgettable love.”

Awaiting: LC Lauren Conrad Zander Platform Sandals. Saw Lauren wearing these in the April 2011 issue of People StyleWatch magazine and fell in love – loved the price even more. I cannot wait for them to arrive!

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!

Rachel said...

I love the Jessica Simpson and Pour La Victoire wedges! They're perfect for spring! :)

Joanne said...

I like the sound of that book you're reading. Animal stories have a certain draw to them, don't they? I'll bet Homer's story is amazing.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Wonderful quote =-)

Laura said...

Love the wedges you are wearing! Those are so perfect. Also, all of those trenches have me swooning over here!!

She is Sara said...

I want to read that book! I love your outfit, you are always cute, cozy, & classy!

I want to see Tangled! My favorite Mandy Moore is the voice in that movie :)

Natasha said...

Those Jungle wedges are to die for. I die! On top of that, I love the La Victoire wedges as well, and I'm so crazy over the Button Back dress. Me and Sheer go well together. Have a good Wednesday :)

Gah! You are wearing everything I want to be wearing! And that photo? Soooo incredibly perfect! Can I just say how much I adore this feature and get giddy every time you post another one?

Tights Lover said...

I am absolutely loving the trenches. Probably has a lot to do with the ongoing downpour outside and how I got soaked coming to work and then going to Starbucks, today. But they are gorgeous...love them...especially the 3.1!

Josie said...

I love those Lauren Conrad sandals! And I too am ob-sessed with Leighton's new song.

Hi, Erika, and thanks so much for mentioning the book! I love your blog, and knowing that "Homer's Odyssey" was mentioned today was a wonderful reminder that it's been far too long since I last checked in!

One of these days I'd love to talk vintage with you...
