♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Knit Sweater Top in Pink; Forever 21 Basic Knit Tank in White; Forever 21 Classic Skinny Jeans in Medium Denim; Dolce Vita Jollen in Nude; Forever 21 Sparkling Love Ring in Gold/Clear; 18k Gold-Plated Sterling Silver “Carrie” Style Name Necklace via MyNameNecklace.

Reading: The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon. Pre-order your copy now. Seriously. It is epic and will become your newest literary obsession. Stupéfiant, stupéfiant, stupéfiant!

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Crown Me Already! from the Miss Universe 2011 Collection. Lips: mark Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint. Eyes: mark I-Mark Metallics Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Truffle.

Listening: Crush On You (Nero Remix) by The Jets. Download. Listen. Repeat. Insane!

Adoring: Mania Mania. The juxtaposition between gritty urban glamour and futuristic aesthetics makes me weak in the knees. Even better is the fact that, with the slight addition of the Vagabond Cuff in Bronze, Love on the Left Bank Cuff in Bronze/Silver, or The Eternal Ring with Amazonite in Bronze to jeans and a plain white tee, you can’t help but to radiate raw elegance. Swoon! Leather pants. Specifically, Elizabeth & James’ Bell Bottom Leather Pants, Haute Hippie’s Skinny Stretch Leather Pants, and Current/Elliott’s The Leather Leggings. Paired with Foley + Corinna’s Knit Poncho with Leather Buckles they are effortlessly elegant; topped with FASHION’S NIGHT OUT Fashion’s Night Out Short Sleeve Tee they are edgy chic; and styled alongside Sam Edelman’s Uma Haircalf Platform Booties they are flirty fabulous. With versatility like that, is there any question as to why j’adore? Mais non! Eugenia Kim Hats. They are très Serena van der Woodsen circa Gossip Girl Season 1, vous ne pensez pas? The Zoey Hat? Besoin! The Catherine Wide Brim Hat with Pierced Feather? Convoiter! The Carly Floppy Hat with Tiger Striped Feather? Amour!

Watching: The Rescuers Down Under.

Desiring: Gryphon Varsity Jacket in Ivory. Now one need not be Head Cheerleader, or the girlfriend of the captain of the football team to rock one of the coolest accoutrements on campus. Ooh, me le donner maintenant! Victoria Beckham Zip Low Rise Skinny Jeans in Wax Sky. The color is incredibly multifaceted, is it not? Just neutral enough to act as a base for oversized chunky knits; yet incredibly eye-catching for those evenings out when you want to cause a standing ovation. Kate Ermilio Double Swing Skirt in Navy. The mere sight of it invokes visions of charming tea parties, society ladies who lunch, and curtsies galore! I shall partner it with Vince’s Little Boy Tee in Coastal and Belle Noel’s Multi Chain Necklace in Palladium to downplay its frou-frou finesse. Amour!

Quoting: Robert Frost - “In three words, I can sum up everything I have learned about life: it goes on.”

Awaiting: Forever 21 Tiny Heart Ring in Gold/Red. There is something quite charming about a piece of jewelry sporting an aesthetic so simplistic it looks as if it could have been found within the folds of a Cracker Jack box, is there not? Love!

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!

The quote is so true, especially now with the aftermath of Irene in New Jersey. So many people were affected, but it's important to remember that this too shall pass.
