♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

5.11.2011

Wearing: Heritage 1981 Cable Knit Cardigan in Cream via Forever 21; Forever 21 Essential V-Neck Cami in Coral; Forever 21 Fab Stitched Skinny Jean in Indigo (worn as cuffed crop); Diane von Furstenberg Pandora Wedge Espadrilles in Nude; Rhinestone Arrow Connector Ring via Forever 21.

Reading: Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel by Candace Bushnell. I thought the first in the series was amazing, but the sequel is incredible beyond belief. Cinq mots: Samantha Jones at age twenty-five. La lecture, la lecture, la lecture!

Glamourizing: Nails: Nicole by OPI “Baby” Blue from the Justin Bieber One Less Lonely Girl Collection. Lips: mark Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint. ‘Tis like a mood ring of sorts for one’s perfect pucker. Fabulous, mais oui? Eyes: mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Iconic.

Listening: Just Can’t Get Enough by Black Eyed Peas. At le risk of sounding très clichéd, I just can’t get enough of this song. J’adore!

Adoring: Ombre / tie dye embellished styles that transport the wearer back to Woodstock and the summer of 1969 – specifically the pretties crafted by Young Fabulous and Broke. I’m partial to the Eden Canyon Long Dress, St. Tropez Long Dress, and Tamara Long Dress. Fabuleux, n'est-ce pas? Reptilian-embossed pieces iridescent in hue which proffer the ability to morph chameleon-style to match anything you may elect to don for a night out with the girls or a mid-day tête-à-tête with your cute boy du jour. The pieces I am currently smitten with? Botkier’s Ava Snake Cross Body Bag in Coral, Elizabeth and James’ Manic Gladiator Platform Sandals in Blush, and Michael Kors Collection Python Print Linked Triangle Bikini in Natural. Bodysuits, bodysuits, bodysuits! Strapless a la Undrest’s Ruffle Bodysuit in Knotting Hill and American Apparel’s Cotton Spandex Jersey Bandeau Bodysuit; sporting daring deep-v necklines like Elkin’s Eyre Bodysuit in Rose or Clove and American Apparel’s Cotton Spandex Jersey Cross-V Bodysuit; or luxuriously lacy courtesy of Kiki de Montparnasse Le Fleur Bodysuit and American Apparel’s Stretch Floral Lace Bodysuit. Each one is saucier than the last, n'est-ce pas?

Watching: The Little Rascals. Darla is the cutest thing, is she not? I kind of want to be her (despite the fact that she’s, like, five). Aimer l'amour!

Desiring: Minnetonka Front Lace Knee High Boots in Minnetonka Brown. Boots in the summer? But of course! I have plans to style them with an all white motif – think 7 For All Mankind Roll Up Shorts in Clean White topped with Soft Joie’s Keeley Tank in Porcelain and sealed with Diane von Furstenberg’s Julie Leather Belt in Luggage. Très adorbs, mais oui? Aimer l'amour! Rebecca Taylor’s Sequin Hoodie in Natural. Sequins make everything more decadent…even your standard knit hoodie - j’adore! sass & bide’s 10 Rules for Happiness Top. No wardrobe is complete without a piece of frippery harboring such a marvelous moniker, n'est-ce pas? Gimme, gimme, gimme!

Quoting: Sophia Loren - “Sex appeal is fifty percent what you’ve got and fifty percent what people think you’ve got.”

Awaiting: Rebecca Minkoff Iridescent Python Morning After Mini Bag in Purple Multi. The Shopbop Friends & Family Code made me do it! Who on earth could possibly resist Rebecca Minkoff marvels at 15% Off retail? Certainly not I! For those of you who are interested, simply enter Promotion Code INTHEFAMILY15 upon checkout to receive 15% Off all full price and sale items. S'incroyablement fabuleux, mais oui?

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!

It's always a sad day when I put away my boots for the summer season. I'm so liking the idea of summer boots, and wonder if the idea's been done ... Boots specifically made for summer wearin'.

OneCraftyFox said...

You rock girl!! I'm totally wearing little cardi's every day and have been scoping out the tye-dye!!

Rick said...

That photo is amazing, as is the outfit that you described wearing. Love it, and I wish I could see you to photograph it :)

I loved watching the Little Rascals (not the 1994 version, but yes, b&w lol). I always thought Spanky was the coolest.

Meanwhile, walked past a Rebecca Minkoff sample sale yesterday. Line was wrapped around the block. They probably were coveting that bag you described!

Mimi said...

it's been so long since i last saw the little rascals! :)

meg said...

Oh, how fun, these picks are. Love the quote too. I must find that baby blue nail polish!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

I love your Fashionably Moi days Erika. You're always so full of cheer and fashion wonder--I love it! Hope this week has been a good one so far for you!

xo Mary Jo

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

These are a great find Erika, especially since Stella McCartney doesn't use leather, so her shoes really aren't patent, but made of the same stuff as Sam Edleman, and unless they are made substantially much better, they are definitely not worth the $645 price tag when they probably cost $25 to make.

Audrey Allure said...

The Little Rascals is one of my fave movies!

Sherin said...

I love the shoes you're wearing. They look amazing.

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

love Black Eyed Peas too! have a fab weekend! xo

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I really want to read that book! And what a great Sophia Loren quote.

Grace said...

Oh, I've really been meaning to read the new Carrie Diaries book--perhaps once I get to Maine I'll find time? And that Rebecca Taylor hoodie is divine!
