♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Summer Eyelet Woven Dress in Coral; Forever 21 Feminine Details Charm Necklace in Red/Gold; Jessica Simpson Jungle in Sesame; House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring in Gold.

Reading: Wanderlust: A Love Affair with Five Continents by Elisabeth Eaves. Place Rag & Bone’s Wide Brim Beach Hat in Natural upon your head, keep a glass of cold lemonade nearby, and take up residence in a lounge chair while reading this book – it creates le parfait ambiance for wanderlust. Just sayin’…

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Come to Poppy from the Summer 2011 Nice Stems! Collection. Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Swell. Eyes: mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven (Black).

Listening: You Make Me Feel by Cobra Starship (feat. Sabi). The song of summer 2011? I think so. Aimer l'amour!

Adoring: Fedoras. Adorable on your cute boy du jour, but far more appropriate for tossing atop your very own tresses. Mes préférés actuels? Eugenia Kim’s Kurt Panama Fedora, and Bop Basics’ Raffia Crochet Floppy Fedora. Does a cuter counterpart for a simple white tank and cropped boyfriend jeans exist? Mais non! Biker-esque boots perfect for toughening up that frilly lace frock you simply can’t get enough of a la Frye’s Veronica Slouch Boots, Boutique 9’s Dode Buckle Booties, and Jeffrey Campbell’s France Suede Boots. The juxtaposition of grunge meets glam is pure perfection, mais oui? Herve Leger. The Crisscross V Neck Dress in Rose, the Geometric Jacquard Dress in Corozo Combo, the Cap Sleeve A Line Dress in Grey. Je les veux tous! Correct me if I’m wrong, but there is nothing that could make a girl feel more feminine than pouring herself into a luscious Leger creation, n'est-ce pas? Swoon!

Watching: Aladdin. One of my forever favorites. A part of me will always want to be Princess Jasmine (P.S. I wouldn’t mind marrying Aladdin either).

Desiring: Alice + Olivia Evangeline Strapless Ruched Dress in Chocolate. Swoon at the allover pleating and ruching! It is luscious, mais oui? Need! American Apparel Illustrated Chiffon T-Shirt Dress in Cat Fancy. Oui, mes cheris, I am a cat lady and proud of it; thus, this pretty needs to find its way to my closet pronto! Alice + Olivia Nadine Sling Back Pumps in Leopard. Le perfect way to add a splash of playfulness to one’s look du jour, n'est-ce pas?

Quoting: Roald Dahl - “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”

Awaiting: 18K Gold-Plated Sterling Silver “Carrie” Style Name Necklace from MyNameNecklace. I am counting down the seconds until its arrival. Thank you, thank you to Mel of Modanista Junkie for posting about MyNameNecklace, otherwise I wouldn’t have found this beauty!

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!

I like the wide brim beach hat, but have actually seen people wearing straw fedoras on the beach. That look is definitely growing on me.

SO jealous you got the necklace!! I was hoping I could pull some strings since I know someone on the "inside" but alas...my connections did me no good. LOL!! But if it couldn't be me, then I'm glad it was you!!

i can't get enough hats this summer, so both beach hats and fedoras are right up my alley! and i LOVE that quote - so very true!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Yay for Aladdin, love that movie!

Fashionistable said...

Cute dress. Love the ring and the Roal Dahl quote. Xxxx

Nikolett said...

Awww yay Aladdin! Such a childhood classic. That 'Wanderlust' novel sounds really intriguing, you'll have to let me know how it is! And I adore your nail polish choice, too :) Right now I have on a red base with black OPI shatter (and each ring finger has a gold base, so it's the colour of the Gryffindor house haha). Hope everything's been going great with you :)

Diana said...

I bet you look so cute and summery in your outfit...love the dress, shoes, and necklace! Love that quote too! Hope you are having a great day!

Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney movies! Oh, and, I'm adding Wanderlust to my to-read list...

A fedora would be perfect for messy poolside hair. I always have loved Herve Leger's designs, I just wish they were in my price range!

Mimi said...
