♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Summer Eyelet Woven Dress in Coral; Jessica Simpson Jungle in Sesame; 18K Gold-Plated Sterling Silver “Carrie” Style Name Necklace via MyNameNecklace; House of Harlow 1960 14KT Horseshoe Stack Ring in Yellow Gold.

Reading: Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey. One part history, two parts paranormal, and a whole lot of forbidden romance make this one of the best books I have read all year – and I’m only halfway through! Get your hands on a copy tout de suite, s'il vous plait!

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI I Eat Mainely Lobster from the Touring America Collection. Lips: mark Juice Gems in Juicy Honeydew. Eyes: mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Iconic.

Listening: High Society by Bear Hands. Download. Listen. Repeat. Traverser mon coeur, vous aimerez!

Adoring: Oversized hoop earrings which add a little extra oomph to chic chignons and messy updos a la MELINDA MARIA’s Galaxy Textured Hoop Earrings in Gold, Alexis Bittar’s Gold Textured Hoop Earrings, and Kenneth Jay Lane’s Large Hoop Earrings in Polished Gold. J'adore des temps trois! The Queen herself…Ms. Diane von Furstenberg. The Andy Long Coat, the Whitman Blouse, the Arria Embellished Dress, the Fimby Trousers. Etre toujours mon Coeur! Each and every one of her designs is sophisticated yet oh-so cheeky, mais oui? Amour! American Apparel Party Pant. The tailored, trouser-like aesthetic is quite intoxicating, is it not? These would make the perfect partner for a colorful Baby Rib Crop T or Cotton Spandex Ruched Front Tube Bra and Juliet & Company Ballerine Parfaite Necklace a la Carrie Bradshaw. I’ll take an XS in Coral, s'il vous plait!

Watching: How to Train Your Dragon.

Desiring: See by Chloe Wallabee High Heel Calf Boots in Cognac/Brown. Rugged when styled with Acne’s Rita Leather Jacket; romantic when accompanying Elizabeth and James’ Delphine Lace Top. Oui, mes amours, it’s official; I have found the mid-calf boot of my dreams. Swoon! Gemma Redux Envelopment Ring. Le perfect accessory for the girl who never has enough love letters in her life, mais oui? J’adore! Club Monaco Gwen Skirt in Golden Rose. The accordion pleats give off quite the coquettish ambiance, n'ils fait pas? You can’t help but to imagine this skirt leading a life all its own – dancing and twirling with wild abandonment at every turn. Le sigh. Me le donner maintenant, s'il vous plait!

Quoting: James Patterson - “Good memories are like charms. Each is special. You collect them, one by one, until one day you look back and discover they make a long, colorful bracelet.”

Awaiting: Long Sleeve Cardigan in Olive and Cobalt Blue via Alloy. It is never too early to start scooping up adorable accoutrements for fall, n'est-ce pas?

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'm yearning for days to wear a cardigan, again.

Natasha said...

I have to pull (and wash) all my Fall stuff soon because I'm hoping it gets cool, like, tomorrow. My new favorite thing, though, is denim leggings or pencil jeans and heels that won't break my toes.

Okay, this has nothing to do with this post but I had to tell you:
I totally collected horses also!!!! No joke, I have well over thirty plastic figurines that I would play with all day long.
