♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Cropped Tie Waist Denim Shirt in Medium Denim; Forever 21 Double Button Skinny Jean in Cream (worn as cuffed capri); Jessica Simpson Jungle in Sesame; House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring in Gold; 18k Gold-Plated Sterling Silver “Carrie” Style Name Necklace via MyNameNecklace.

Reading: The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. Oui, I have read it multiple times, but I truly never grow tired of Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo (aka Mia). Besides, who am I to refuse the chance to swoon over Michael Moscovitz. Le sigh. Fictional character or not, he is my future husband. Amour!

Glamourizing: Nails: mark Ibiza Sol Nailed It Trend Mini Lacquers in Mojito. Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Splashy. Eyes: mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Surreal.

Listening: She’s On the Move by Far East Movement.

Adoring: Faux fur fabulosity – specifically, MM6 Maison Martin Margiela’s Faux Fur Cropped Poncho, and Alice + Olivia’s Faux Fur Vest. It is never too early for one to begin preparing for fall fashion, n'est-ce pas? American Apparel’s Vinyl Fanny Pack. If Carrie Bradshaw can rock the fanny pack / belt bag with wild abandonment, I believe we all owe it to ourselves to give the look a whirl, ne fait pas vous? I’ll take one in all eight haute hues, s'il vous plait! Notte by MARCHESA. The Strapless Dress with Organza Ruffle for cocktail parties; the Strapless Column Gown with Ruffle Cascade for high society soirees; and the Strapless Column Dress with Ruffles for those evenings when you feel like being all dressed up whether you have somewhere fabulous to go or not. Le sigh. Etre toujours mon Coeur!

Watching: Robots. Two words…Must. See. Cross my heart you will love!

Desiring: Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag in Black. The quilted leather; the antique gold hardware, the très chic chain strap…swoon! Etre toujours mon Coeur! I am totes having a love affair with this charming carryall! Giuseppe Zanotti Suede Wedge Pumps with Ankle Strap in Black. Typically I don’t covet footwear with pointy toes but this is one time when I’ll make an exception – love love! 7 For All Mankind Josefina Skinny Boyfriend Jeans in Heraux Blue. Tell me I’m not the only one incapable of resisting the subtle slouch throughout the leg – it is effortlessly sexy et seductive, mais oui? Especially when styled with Free People’s Spending Time Sweater. Salut, je vous adore!

Quoting: Marilyn Monroe - "A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left."

Awaiting: House of Harlow 1960 14KT Horseshoe Stack Ring in Yellow Gold. A girl can never have too many good luck charms, 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!

Sarah said...

Erika! Thank you so much for leaving such great recommendations! I've added them to my list to start reading ASAP! I'm currently reading Valkyre - about Hilter... kind of a downer, but for some reason it's interesting! Up next - Breakfast at Tiffany's for sure. It's my FAVOURITE movie, so not sure why I haven't read it yet.

Thank you so much!! It's great to have a comment on such a new blog! :)

Maddy said...

I agree that a girl can never have enough good luck charms, or any baubles for that matter :)

Tights Lover said...

I love the horseshoe ring. What a fabulous price for it too!

Jessica said...

First off, Princess Diaries is amazing (I don't care how "childish" it may seem. lol)! Secondly, I love the outfit pictured, and the items you have listed in the post! Shopbop is being difficult so some of the links aren't working, but they say it's "technical difficulties". Hopefully they get it worked out.
