♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Forever 21 Cozy Fox Sweater; Forever 21 Fab Stitch Skinny Jean in Indigo; Jessica Simpson Alster in Whiskey Lima Leather; Forever 21 Vintage Opaque Ring in Antique Gold / Taupe.

Reading: Violet on the Runway by Melissa Walker. Warning: Reading this book may leave you with a strong desire to strike a pose, and vogue!

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Sanguine from the OPI Go Goth! 2010 Halloween Collection. Lips: mark Juice Gems in Juicy Honeydew. Eyes: mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black.

Listening: Wrong Time Wrong Planet by Does It Offend You, Yeah?

Adoring: Bucket bags a la M Missoni’s Studded Tiger Cross Body Bag, Alexander Wang’s Diego Bucket Bag, and M Missoni’s Studded Pouch Bag. Two parts bohemian carryall; one part Victorian reticule; as a whole, they are a decadent style dedicated to adding a pop of personality to your look du jour. Shearling-lined booties – specifically, Pour La Victoire’s Aileen Platform Booties, Marc by Marc Jacobs Wedge Platform Booties, and Schutz’s Shearling Cuff Platform Booties. Inside, your toes stay toasty courtesy of the shearling lining; outside, your style sparkles via the shearling cuff embellishment. Cozy et chic…what more could a fabulous fashionista possibly ask for, oui? Shimmering cocktail dresses that make one twinkle effervescently (quite a bit like a human bottle of champagne, vous ne pensez pas?). My personal favorites? Halston Heritage’s Gathered Cocktail Dress in Khaki, and RED Valentino’s Cocktail Dress with Bows in Camel. Le sigh.

Watching: Monster House. If you like weird, you will amour this movie – it is insane (in an amazing way, bien sûr)!

Desiring: Tory Burch Blaire Riding Boots in Bordeaux. Classic in aesthetic; playful and unexpected in color. ‘Tis a true piece of statement footwear that will stand the test of time; whilst working with just about anything in your wardrobe. J’adore! Acne Simone Blushed Jacket in Blushed. Welt pockets and extra-long sleeves create a throwback to Melanie Griffith’s 80s Working Girl-style; while the pale pastel hue and oversized fit make it the perfect topper for simple skinny jeans when channeling one’s inner model-off-duty. Aimer au dixième pouvoir! ADAM Open Knit Crew Neck Sweater in Milk. Slouchy, seductive, demure, coquettish…it is a multifaceted marvel that epitomizes the term tongue-in-cheek chic. Swoon! Etre toujours mon Coeur!

Quoting: Albert Schweitzer - “There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.”

Awaiting: Le Bird Cage Bangle, Lost Treasure Bracelet, and Paramour Bracelet via JewelMint. Kate Bosworth has quite le eye for ambrosial accessories; thus, I felt the need to scoop up a trio of tantalizing treasures for my jewelry collection! Gorgeous, 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!

Your fashion sense is so amazing, and I have never even heard of the Violet series (where have I been?!). I'll admit that I haven't been reading that many books lately, but I'm probably going to be getting some new ones very soon.

Love the Albert Schweitzer quote ... Both have such an ability to reach out to us somehow. Schweitzer's line could be one of my credos :)

**Quoting: Albert Schweitzer - “There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.” **

Schweitzer must have never had a charge card at Saks, or had a daily dosage of Cafe Fashionista blog ;)
