♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Rib Knit Basic Tank in Lavender; Forever 21 Double Button Skinny Jean in Cream (worn as cuffed capri); Jessica Simpson Jungle in Sesame; Forever 21 Lacquered Flower Ring in White/Gold.

Reading: 100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know: Engagement Chicken and 99 Other Recipes to Get You Everything You Want in Life by Cindi Leive and the Editors of Glamour. Deux. Mots… Cuteness squared. Seriously. This weekend I shall attempt It’s Cocktail Hour ‘Somewhere’ Bourbon French Toast, Sexy City Cocktail, Skinny Jeans Scallops, and Win Friends and Influence People Cookies. The recipe titles are to-die-for, mais oui? J’adore!

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender from the Hong Kong Collection. Lips: mark Ibiza Sol Marbleized Lip Gloss in Bonita Pink. Eyes: Revlon CustomEyes Shadow & Liner in Naturally Glamorous.

Listening: The Ballad of Mona Lisa by Panic at the Disco.

Adoring: Pretty treasures in fruity flavors that leave one dreaming of far-off tropical destinations – specifically, Rebecca Minkoff’s Studded Infatuation Bag in Tangerine, BCBGMAXAZRIA’s Fei Fei Strapless Dress in Nectar, Rebecca Taylor’s Pin Dot Halter in Cherry, and American Apparel’s Medium Leather Carry-All Pouch in Plum Ostrich. Obviously fruit feeds one’s wardrobe just as well as it feeds one’s toned tummy, n'est-ce pas? Goddess-esque maxis capable of transforming one into a modern-day fairytale princess a la Shoshanna’s Beaded Maxi Strapless Dress in Ivory, Thread’s Clara Dress with Removable Skirt, and Catherine Deane’s Giselle Gown. Swoon! Now all that’s needed is Prince Charming! Tom Ford Eyewear. More appropriately, the three fabulous ladies known as Whitney, Eugenia, and Vicky. Utterly magnificent, mais oui? Le besoin, le désir, adorer!

Watching: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Kate Hudson as Andie Anderson is très magnifique. Amour!

Desiring: Rebecca Minkoff Brooke High Heel Sandals. The buckled t-strap and matching buckled sling-back strap is the absolute perfect amount of embellishment for these pretties. Le sigh; être toujours mon Coeur! PRPS Japan Set Me Free Skinny Jeans. As if the magnificent Medium Vintage wash didn’t thrill you enough; the perfectly placed bird doodles and “If you love me set me free” scribbled lettering is sure to do the trick. Evanouissement! Ash Gorgeous Denim Peep Toe Pumps. Distressed denim as the material used for a perfect pair of pumps is such a clever idea, ce n'est pas? ‘Tis a shame that they’re completely sold out of my size. Love love!

Quoting: Marilyn Monroe - “If you’re gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.”

Awaiting: Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World’s Most Coveted Handbag by Michael Tonello. This tome has been tantalizing me for ages; I had to pick up a copy for myself!

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!
