♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: LOVE 21 Silken Peasant Top in Pink/Grey via Forever 21; Forever 21 Classic Skinny Jeans in Medium Denim; Dolce Vita Jollen in Nude; House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring in Gold.

Reading: Exes and Ohs: A Downtown Girl’s (Mostly Awkward) Tales of Love, Lust, Revenge, and a Little Facebook Stalking by Shallon Lester. Shallon Lester is the BFF you’ve always dreamed of…that is all.

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Pink Flamenco from the Espana Collection. Lips: mark Juice Gems in Juicy Fig. Eyes: mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Tiki.

Listening: Ghost in the Machine by B.o.B. My current musical obsession - j’adore!

Adoring: Coquettish crop tops that allow one to be scandalous in an oh-so sophisticated fashion a la American Apparel’s Stretch Floral Lace Crop Top, 2x1 Racerback Cropped Tank, and Silky Loose Crop Tank. Un petit peek at one’s toned tummy goes a long way, n'est-ce pas? Alluring accessories which juxtapose between minimalist and utterly magnificent – specifically the pretties crafted by dalla nonna. My current favorites? The Heart Necklace, the XO Bracelet, and the Love Bracelet. Swoon! Le besoin, le désir, l'amour! One-shoulder aesthetics that allow one’s skin to play peek-a-boo with the world like Elizabeth and James’ Bijou Top, The Addison Story’s One Shoulder Dress, and Torn by Ronny Kobo’s Olivia One Shoulder Dress. Très flirty, yes? Love love!

Watching: Almost Famous. Should I ever be reincarnated, I would love to come back as Miss Penny Lane. She is truly too fabulous for words – as is her wardrobe!

Desiring: Alternative Adler Bag in Safari. The color makes it transitional through winter, spring, summer, and fall; the avant-garde aesthetic gives it personality; and the price…well, that’s simply irresistible. Avoir besoin de tout de suite! Pencey Crocheted Hoodie in Salmon. Swoon! Oui, mes amours, I am totes in the midst of a love affair with this garment – it is perfection to the tenth power; and would look so adorable topping Cali Dreaming’s The Nubby Bikini in Nude Shimmer, mais oui? Bop Basics The Fiance Blazer. After years of searching high and low for the perfect boyfriend blazer, I have finally found the true crème de la crème. Me pincer, je dois rêver!

Quoting: Marilyn Monroe - “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

Awaiting: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Clutch in Red. The color is perfection for fall; I simply couldn’t resist. Besides, it’s Rebecca Minkoff…l'amour chronomètre l'infinité!

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!
