♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

6.08.2011

Wearing: Forever 21 Open Crochet Poncho in Taupe; Forever 21 Ripped Shorts with Belt in Medium Denim; Seychelles Pickford Sandal in Gold; Rhinestone Arrow Connector Ring via Forever 21.

Reading: Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World’s Most Coveted Handbag by Michael Tonello. Exotic locales, shopping, romance…swoon! There is nothing that this book doesn’t have. It is official, mes chéris; Michael Tonello is my new BFF in spirit! Amour!

Glamourizing: Nails: Steady as She Rose from the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Collection. Lips: mark Lots of Lacquer Hook Up Super Color Lip Gloss in Thrill. Eyes: mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Fairy Dust.

Listening: Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People. The quintessential soundtrack for a lazy summer day.

Adoring: Whisper-thin tanks featuring dreamy draping and not one, but two Deep-V aesthetics – front et back. Mes préférés actuels? Blu Moon’s Double Take Tank in Tea Party, state & lake’s Ginger Camisole in Rose Paisley, and Bec & Bridge’s Bobine Racer Back Tank in Black. They are quite tongue-in-cheek chic, mais oui? Love! American Apparel Leather Carry-All Pouches. Between their abundance of sizes - Small, Medium, or Large – and selection of colors, growing tired of one’s handbag counterpart is simply not an option. I’ll take one of each, s'il vous plait! Short shorts sporting barely-there hemlines and playful prints a la Kenny’s Seoul Shorts in Fruit Punch, Georgie’s Tilly Print Shorts in Multi, and Joie’s Ikat Print Abbott Shorts in Spicy Orange. Le perfect accessory to these pretties? A fruity-flavored popsicle in a punchy pigment, of course!

Watching: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I call dibs on Sloane’s white fringed leather jacket. Swoon!

Desiring: Juicy Couture Sunnies Laptop Sleeve. Leave it to the ladies of Juicy Couture to make something as simple as a laptop case downright cheeky and flirty fabulous. The metallic sunnies, the crimson pucker, the pretty Perfume Pink hue…hi, I adore you. Calvin Klein Collection Katarina Suede Sandals. The ankle cuff, ankle tie, and platform make them sexy; the Jute / Tmoro (Taupe) color makes them sophisticated. Who could possibly resist such an incredible juxtaposition? Certainly not I! L'amour chronomètre l'infinité! Patricia Schultz’s 1000 Places to See Before You Die by Graphic Image via Cambria Cove. Aside from sporting a pretty in pink cover, the allure of chapters about locations such as the Cipriani Hotel in Venice leads me to believe that this is one of the most glamorous guidebooks available; and gives me a serious case of wanderlust! Le besoin chronomètre trois!

Quoting: Johnny Depp - “You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.”

Awaiting: Rebecca Minkoff Little Louie Key Pouch in Pink Ostrich. Le perfect companion to the new Rebecca Minkoff Ostrich BF in Pink Ostrich I picked up a few weeks ago. Amour. Il.

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!

Your outfit sounds cuuuuute! And I had a thing to Cameron hehe!

My Heart Blogged said...

I think there is something sexy about the double v cami's. It's not overly sexy but shows just enough skin. That laptop sleeve is too cute, and I would love to carry it this summer.

StyleID said...

What a Beautiful [Ginger] camisole... I am adoring it. I want your shoes, very pretty summer choice you are wearing today.

Bringing home the Birkin was one of my fav books. Now I am reading "Malled" - which is a bit dry, but interesting observations on the retail sales industry.
