So what is Fashionably Moi!, you ask? Café Fashionista’s new weekly series that will give you the lowdown on everything I’m currently up to – from what’s on my nails to what’s on my nightstand. Let’s begin, shall we, my loves?!
♥Wearing: Black floral Xhilaration dress from Target; Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Luella Zip Wedge Sandals in Black (still searching for my size in Cognac!); House of Harlow 1960 Key Cocktail Ring; Hot Pink Floral Ring from Forever 21.
♥Reading: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – Mary Engelbreit’s Classic Library Edition, that is. The story is so much more charming with Engelbreit’s whimsical illustration on the cover!
♥Glamourizing: Nails: Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers layered over OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark to create what Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere has titled Poison Apple. Lips: mark’s Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Tease (sadly, this shade appears to have been discontinued) layered over mark’s Pro Glimmer Hook Up Lip Powder in Peek – perfect for creating a subtly frosted lip. Eyes: mark’s i-glimmer Illuminating Eye Color in Bronzed (another product that has tragically been discontinued!).
♥Listening: Baby’s Romance by Chris Garneau. I like to think of it as a lullaby for grown-ups. Listen to it immediately, si vous s'il vous plait - you will love!
♥Adoring: Double-finger rings. Scrangie – literally THE best nail polish blog ever; she makes me want to buy more luscious lacquers than a girl could ever possibly need! White Hot Chocolate – the name says it all.
♥Watching: Gossip Girl Season 2 on DVD. I’ll be honest; one Ms. Serena van der Woodsen’s diva-tude leaves much to be desired – bring back the girl I adore from Season 1!
♥Desiring: Hard Candy’s Just Nails with Ring in Mr. Wrong – I have searched high and low for this color and cannot find it anywhere! Belle by Sigerson Morrison Stretch Mid Thigh Wedge Boots – swoon; be still my heart! Valley of the Dolls - j’adore the book by Jacqueline Susann; therefore, it is high time to see the big screen version.
♥Quoting: Henry Emerson Fosdick - “I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”
♥Awaiting: Merona Musetta Ruffled Booties in Black. Presently I am on quite the bootie kick – no pun intended; thus, I need these in my life…luckily, they should be here any day now!
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?
