Smitten Saturday

Red Ahead Nude lips are my affliction; perhaps because I embrace bold eyes. I love thick, luscious lashes rimmed in blackest black liquid kohl liner; thus, with such a statement being made with the peepers, you don’t want to overwhelm your audience by blinding them with a pouty red pucker. Perhaps now you can see my dilemma my loves.

I’ve always worshipped crimson kissers. The old-fashioned noir glamour such a look expels is simply mystifying and intriguing, with just the slightest hint of scandal behind the candy apple façade. Unfortunately, I’ve never had the chance to try out such a seductive style myself. I suppose I’m simply intimidated to attempt such a brazen look; frightened, you might say. But as of late, it has begun to call my name. I dream of slicking on mark’s Gleamstick Hook Up Lip Color in Passionate for a flaming, high-shine look. I am convinced that Nars’ bittersweet Fire Down Below has the ability to boost confidence with a single swipe. And there’s no denying that the satiny finish of Yves Saint Laurent’s Fard A Levres Rouge Pur in Opium Red is sure to lure the leading lady lurking within to step up to the forefront for a standing ovation. To displace bold eyes for red lips or not, that is the question. What’s your stand, kitty cats?

Seven Up Bubbly effervescence. Sweet bits that are creamy, frothy, and nectarous. Dolls, I am not discussing a new beverage available at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, mind you; I simply have Sarah Seven, my design crush du jour, on the tip of my tongue. Unlike many who strive to whip up fierce, rugged frocks with attitude, Sarah Seven prefers to sugarcoat her creations via saccharine titles, candy-coated colors, and honeyed fabrics. Fancy That is made syrupy with ruffles, rhinestones, and gauze; Powdered Sugar is sweetened with sparkly organza, silver beading, and layers of tulle; and A Peaceful Afternoon becomes luscious with cream-colored lace, ruffles, and silk. It’s a sugar rush for your wardrobe; and truly, there’s nothing sweeter than that!

Pride and Pendants Darlings Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice will forever be one of my favorite books. I have read it countless times, and never tire of the independent Elizabeth Bennett or the oftentimes ornery Mr. Darcy. Another thing I never tire of? Pendants that are so representative of the era depicted in the Victorian tale.

This rose-colored I Lilac It Ring, what with its antique, burnished-gold frame, pink rhinestones, and Victorian portrait has made my heart skip a beat ever since I first spotted it weeks ago. In my mind’s eye I can easily imagine Elizabeth Bennett herself fawning over this Ornate Charmed Necklace. The elegance found in this demure Paint My Portrait Necklace in Gold has left me completely gaga. And this little Ladylike Locket Ring? Such a clever place for storing a treasured photograph. It’s true my loves; I’m fully convinced that even the sharp-tongued Elizabeth would be quite pleased with these pretty pendants. The question is…are you?

What were you smitten with this week?

Fashionably yours!
