♥Wearing: Mossimo Supply Co. Sweater Jacket in Burgundy via Target; Forever 21 Basic cotton Thermal Top in White; Mossimo Supply Co. Skinny Jean – Medium Vintage Wash via Target; Long Cuffable Scrunchable Socks in Natural via Sock Dreams; Steve Madden Maryn in Cognac; Forever 21 Antique Pendant Necklace; Rhinestone Arrow Connector Ring in Gold via Forever 21.
♥Reading: Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City by Kirsten Miller. It saddens me to admit that I have been harboring this book in my bedroom since its publication in 2006, and am only now getting the chance to read it. Regardless, I am positively hooked. I highly recommend it for the How to Take Advantage of Being A Girl list which can be found on pages 15-16 (of the hardcover version) alone. Incroyable! You will amour; marquer mes mots!
♥Glamourizing: Nails: Essie Blanc – hands down the most stunning winter white I have ever seen. Lips: mark Shine Tubes Hook Up Lip Gloss in Sugared Almond. Eyes: mark’s i-glimmer Illuminating Eye Color in Bronzed.
♥Listening: Lights by Ellie Goulding. There are no words to describe how obsessed I am with this song at the moment; it makes me think of twinkling fairy lights and glitter whenever I hear it! J'adore de l'infinité de temps!
♥Adoring: American Apparel’s Stretch Velvet Double U-Neck Long Sleeve Mini Dress – the epitome of true holiday style, mais oui? I find it incredibly irrésistible myself - amour! Mistletoe, mistletoe, and more mistletoe – specifically when it is in the possession of cute boys; sadly, it seems most often harbored by the undesirables. Très tragique, non? Nevertheless, j’adore it! Body-hugging turtleneck sweaters that transport the wearer back in time to 1960s Greenwich Village, New York and the world of beatnik poets and folkloric musicians a la BCBGMAXAZRIA’s Turtleneck in Black.
♥Watching: The Vampire Diaries: The Complete First Season. Non, it will never live up to the book series (which I simply cannot get enough of); but I find myself fairly smitten with Elena’s wardrobe. And really now, who could resist Stefan and Damon? You know you love them!
♥Desiring: Eugenia Kim’s Foxy Scarf – a rather childlike way of taking a walk on the wild side, consenti? A lifetime supply of Starbucks’ Caramel Brulee Latte. In all honesty, I would have no qualms with subsisting solely on this beverage for the remainder of my days. Why oh why must it be seasonal? Le sigh! Free People’s Lace Puff Sleeve Dress. I have yet to determine what I adore more – the ladylike lace construction, or the Lolita-esque aesthetic of the frock in its entirety. Is it just me or does it simply scream Blair Waldorf?
♥Quoting: Gossip Girl - “Sometimes, you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be.”
♥Awaiting: Divine Rights of Denim Grey Wash Skinny Jeans via Forever 21. I have been on quite the denim kick as of late; I believe that 50% of my wardrobe now consists of skinny jeans, and the other 50% is devoted to boots - there is very little room for anything else. L'amour, l'amour, l'amour!
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?
