Wishlisht Wednesday #36 – Elina Gleizer Torn Silver Ring

I know this is the time of year that people usually post about gifts to get other people. But if you haven’t been able to tell, my family doesn’t celebrate Christmas. And we don’t do presents. Which leaves me free to keep cultivating my own wishlist. 😉

High up on that list is this gorgeous Elina Gleizer Torn Silver Ring.

Okay, so it looks kind of like a ring I already have. But it also kind of doesn’t. It’s exquisite. And unusual. And classy. And rough around the edges. Everything I aspire to be, come to think of it.

(It also comes in a version with black diamonds that I like even better…but I don’t like the price better. Still. Thought I would point that out for all of you.)

If I close my eyes and squint, I can see it on my finger! (Or is that my ring that looks kind of like it??)

What are you guys wishing for this holiday season?

OOTD: Ça va, Degas?

Affilier Acheté

One of my favorite things to do is to take something dressy and wear it for everyday by dressing it down with something casual. I finally got my long-coveted Alexandra Grecco tulle skirt, and the sun finally came out in New York, and so I spun together my favorite kind of OOTD: a magical one.

OOTD: Ready for my closeup

Gratuit

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

When you work in Long Island City and are looking for places to shoot an OOTD, your choices are pretty limited. The day these photos were taken, Danielle and I meandered over to what turned out to actually be Silvercup Studios. Luckily, no one kicked us out! Alas, I was not discovered, and am still working my day job. Le sigh.

What you can’t see is that the light above Stage B was lit, meaning they were taping behind there.

FOTD: Bite Beauty, Hourglass Cosmetics, and NARS

Affilier Acheté

Sometimes I go into Target and I come out with more than I bargained for. Case in point, this top. I know I should save my money for investment pieces, but this was so cute and decently priced. And it inspired this FOTD using Bite Beauty, Hourglass Cosmetics, and NARS.

Live on the edge: FOTD with Lady Danger by MAC

P.S. See how much better my skin is looking?!

MAC Lady Danger lipstick. You knew I was going to break down and buy it, right? Well, of course. It’s such a standout color, I think, even more vibrant and attention catching than red. But I have a gorgeous look for you to incorporate it into your everyday makeup wardrobe.

Les Cinq Petites Choses #4

Affilier Acheté

I decided that instead of talking about all the things that I want, I would talk about the things that I have or that I don’t have but am just appreciating.

Alors, voici, les cinq petites choses que je suis amoureuse en ce moment (is that right?). The 5 little things I’m loving right now.

#1 – You’ll notice that I threw in some French again, and that’s heavily influenced by two of the things on the list today.

I was talking to my friend Darren in Montreal, and he recommended some music artists to me who sing in French. (As we know, I like them.) I promptly went and looked them up, and super glad I did. I’m pretty crap discussing music (despite how much I love listening to it), so I’ll paraphrase Darren.

Alex Nevsky – Himalaya Mon Amour He’s kind of chamber pop/rock with some 60s influences. Apparently, “On leur a fait croire” became an actual radio hit up there, despite the fact that though it sounds so fun, the lyrics are terribly sarcastic and dark.

Le Couleur – Voyage Love EP (Yes, “Le,” not “La,” the error is apparently intentional.) It has a very disco synth sound, but it’s undeniably modern. I even like it despite the synth. 😉 “Vacances de 87” and “Voyage amoureux” are great to dance to.

Peter Peter – Une version amĂ©liorĂ©e de la tristesse He’s apparently the indie darling up in Montreal. He used to make more folk rock music, but discovered the synthesizer for this album, so it’s kind of experimental synth pop. And good.

(Okay, so technically this was 3 things. A bonus. 😉 )

Wishlist Wednesday #14 – Jewelry by Cleopatra’s Bling

I’ve written before in brief about my love for my jewelry from Cleopatra’s Bling. Now that the lovely Olivia finally launched her own web site, I pretty much want…well, everything. Where should we start?

How about this?

I love how this Quartz, Pearl, and Agate 4-stone ring has such beautiful symmetry and how the colors complement each other.
