Cat's Meow

I love how outrageously cute these Givenchy Panther glasses are!  They come in navy, charcoal, yellow & even have a black fur-trimmed version, but these plum ones are my favorite!

Nailed It

I’m loving these nail colors.  I normally like darker shades, but I love the naked look on Lily Donaldson.  I also love the pop of the pastel & the fluorescent orange.  Which reminds me, I need a manicure…

Backing Out

I love this look.  Everything about it is so cool—from the open back contrasting with the oversized cable knit to the pattern on the pyjama-esque silk short!  I need to get this look together for fall!

This skirt is my new favorite.  I got it at Zara & I’m always excited about wearing it.  I think one of the best things about fashion is that I would not have imagined myself as one to wear gold leather before, but now, I cannot wait to wear it again.  I love how the slightest change in the fashion pendulum can somehow affect the way you see things & you never know what your new favorite item will be & where it will be from.

Future Classic

I’m so in love with this minaudière.  When I first came across it online, I thought it was a vintage piece.  However, today, I was on instagram & discovered it was a F/W 2011 piece!  There is hope that I can one day possess this gorgeous item! 

I’m always a sucker for shagreen, but the colorful stone detail is so beautiful.  I love when beautiful items like this are made.  This minaudière looks so well crafted & doesn’t look like something that is manufactured by the thousands.  It might be, but at least it doesn’t give the appearance like it is.  This is something that will remain a classic in your closet forever & won’t become untouchable in a year like many other “it” bags.

"The Edge of Love"

I watched "The Edge of Love" over the weekend.  The storytelling wasn't as good as I expected, but the costuming was beautiful.  Despite the World War II setting, the clothes look very modern, don't they?  I was wondering if Sienna Miller's fedora was an anachronism or not--as well as the knee-length hemlines without stockings...  It was beautiful to look at nonetheless.

Wouldn't Be Caught Dead Without Perfect Make-Up?

I love the idea of collaborating on your final look.  Illamasqua is working with London funeral home Leverton & Sons to provide make-up services for your very final final look.  "To wear the most fabulous makeup applied by a professionally trained makeup artist for your final journey is the ultimate statement of celebration," stated the company's blog.  They describe it as "the final act of self-expression."

The Kids are Alright

The Lanvin children’s line debuted for Resort 2012.  How cute are they?  However, growing up in Lanvin sets the bar high in life, doesn’t it? 

Time for Change

For many years, I’ve had elbow length hair.  That's what I tell my hairdresser when I get it trimmed.  One even took it literally & wanted to check my hair against my elbow (I’m not complaining though--I always appreciate meticulousness!).  However, I’ve been growing bored with my look & am now obsessed with Freja’s length.

"Never Let Me Go"

I watched "Never Let Me Go" a month or two ago & it still lingers with me.  It is definitely not your typical science fiction movie.  It reads more like a period film.  The scenery is what you expect from an English movie with tweeds, thick sweaters & wellies.  It's visually stunning & the story is just so haunting that for the first time, I wonder if the book is as good as the movie.

I Heart Balenciaga

I normally don’t gravitate towards flat shoes, but I love these two pairs by Balenciaga.  Of course, they are no where near being “sensible shoes,” which is probably why I love them!

To Have Loved & Lost...

I had this Miu Miu clutch in my hands at Barney’s.  Oh, why didn’t I buy it??? 
It’s been years, but I still look for it on ebay every once in a while.  If anyone wants to sell theirs, you know where to find me! 

On the Fringe

These are two of my Prada lost loves.  I didn’t even attempt to get the dress, but I was always on the fence on the tote.  I worried I wouldn’t carry it.  I’m not too much of a tote bag girl…  However, I always still come back to these pictures & look at them with a longing.  Maybe one day…
