♥Reading: Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik. Ladies Beware: Regardless of how moody Mr. Derek Edwards is, you will find yourself swooning over him in the very same fashion as you do Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy. It is, after all, a modern re-telling of Pride and Prejudice. Just sayin’.
♥Glamourizing: Nails: OPI It’s My Year from the Miss Universe 2011 Collection. Lips: mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Sexy. Eyes: mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Fairy Dust.
♥Listening: Mad World - Gary Jules. One part brooding + one part somber + one part romantic = a melting pot of pure beauty. Ecouter tout de suite, mes amours!
♥Adoring: Iosselliani. The union of mixed metals, unlikely texture combinations, and haphazard aesthetics is so incredibly unexpected that it can only be described in one way…unforgettable. I am currently obsessing over the Fused Ring in Gold, Cornelian & Turquoise Bangle Set in Gold/Turquoise, and the Fused Stone Earrings in Turquoise. Salut, je vous adore! Charming carryalls trimmed not in diamonds, rhinestones, gold, or pearls; rather, fabulous fringe that shimmies flirtily with every single step one takes! Coveting…Foley + Corinna’s Tassel Fringe Cross Body Bag in Redwood, and JJ Winters’ Small Fringe Bag in Grey, Taupe, et Black. Good things come in small packages – and multiples, mais oui? Sheer blouses which transform pretty underthings from an optional to a decadent essential a la Thakoon’s Long Sleeve Blouse, Rebecca Minkoff’s Kate Leopard Blouse, and Equipment’s Sisley Blouse. Le sigh.
♥Watching: Eloise at Christmastime. Let’s be honest, shall we darlings? Christmas is four months away; it is high time that we begin preparing for the holiday season, and there is no better way to do so than with the assistance of le ultra-precocious Eloise.
♥Desiring: Rebecca Minkoff I Heart Boys, Shoes & Bags Cory Pouch in Blood Red. Apparently Ms. Minkoff has tapped into my inner psyche and scrawled my three loves in saucy script upon this petite pouch. Obviously it needs to make its way into my accessory collection tout de suite! Plush Legwarmer Leggings in Black/Grey. One year later and I am still lusting after these lovelies. Perhaps it’s a sign that I should finally make them mine, mais oui? Marc by Marc Jacobs High Heel Tall Boots in Brick. MJ brings new meaning to the lyrics “she’s a brick…house,” vous ne pensez pas? Could it be that, for 2011, brick is the new black? Aimer l'amour!
♥Quoting: Unknown - “The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation that you ever had.”
♥Awaiting: Forever 21 I’m With the Band Slub Top in Cream/Black. The juxtaposition between effortless glamour and just a smidgen of nineties-inspired grunge is perfection, 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?
