♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Charlotte Russe Cropped Black Blazer; Forever 21 Essential Knit Tank in White; Forever 21 Fab Stitch Skinny Jean in Indigo; Forever 21 Sparkling Collar Necklace in Dark Grey; Nine West Magic in Black Leather.

Reading: The Teen Vogue Handbook. How this book has escaped my notice since its publication in 2009 is truly beyond me; it has been my BFF since it arrived on my doorstep two weeks ago! Aimer au dixième pouvoir!

Glamourizing: Nails: OPI Blue My Mind. Lips: mark Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint. Eyes: mark Mini Mark It Stick Hook Up Stick for Eyes in Cocoa Bean.

Listening: Plastic Jungle by Miike Snow.

Adoring: Simple shift dresses sporting minimal aesthetics and high hemlines – perfect for maintaining modesty; whilst showing off a bit of one’s glamorous gams. Actuellement adorer? Rory Beca's Juliette Shift Dress in Poinsettia, and Tibi's Long Sleeve Shift Dress in Aqua et Red. Magnifique, vous ne pensez pas? Love! Pointy-toe pumps which pair perfectly with cuffed boyfriend jeans and a sloppy (yet utterly sophisticated) bun a la Elizabeth and James’ Selby Pointy Toe Pumps, Kate Spade Shoes' Licorice Suede Pumps, and Nine West’s Martina. Tuxedo-inspired frippery feminized for le fashionista’s wardrobe – specifically, Rachel Zoe’s Cameron Tux Dress, and ADAM’s Cropped Tuxedo Jacket. ‘Tis the epitome of dapper dressing, mais oui?

Watching: Elf.

Desiring: J. Crew Mona Suede Pumps in Wild Berry – the ultimate form of footwear for channeling one’s inner Barbie girl. I have plans to don them with cuffed denim, striped boatneck tees, and piles upon piles of statement necklaces. Salut, je vous adore! Juicy Couture Fashionista Necklace. I propose that we make this bauble the official fashion bloggers symbol. Who’s with me? Botkier Eden Satchel in Multi. A colorblock handbag that juxtaposes between one’s vixen-ish side (via the red), and playful persona (a la the pink)? Yes. Please. J’adore!

Quoting: Barney Stinson of How I Met Your Mother - “When I get sad I just stop being sad and be awesome instead.”

Awaiting: Rebecca Minkoff Cheetah iPhone Case in Fuchsia / Royal Blue. My Black iPhone 4S requested a colorful new ensemble; I was more than happy to comply. Le. Fin.

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 outfit sounds perfect! I have been semi-obsessed with tuxedo jackets, too - really want to find one with a nice fit to wear over flirty dresses at Holiday parties, and with skinnies and ankle boots during the day!

I like the idea of the skinny jeans with the Russe cropped black blazer. It's a look I wear often.
