Sophia Webster for J.Crew Anneka kitten heel pumps
HELLOOOOOOO LOVER!!

Luckily for my wallet, this week’s Wishlist Wednesday item is theoretical only. I’m not a huge J.Crew person. I love their basic tees, and I do like some clothing, but it’s so overpriced. And so I never heard about, and subsequently missed, their collaboration with British shoe designer Sophia Webster. And I missed buying these Sophia Webster for J.Crew Anneka kitten heel pumps.

My Favorite Places: Paperdolls boutique, Paris

Paperdolls

When I started this blog, I mentioned that I was going to write about some of my favorite places in the world. My recent whirlwind 23-hour visit to Paris was a great place to start, since I knew I had to pop into Paperdolls boutique, one of my favorite places in Paris.

Tips for Shopping Overseas

Shopping overseas It will surprise no one that I like to shop. Or that I like to travel. Or that I like to shop while I’m traveling. Since I’m heading off to France (I know, again) in a week and a half, I thought I would write up a guide with everything I’ve learned about shopping overseas.

The Liebster Award x 2

I am honored and touched to have been nominated for the Liebster Award twice within a week or so, first by Anna of Beauty by Shortylegs and then by Dea of Her Deauty.

The Liebster Award is a way of giving accolades to blogs with 200 or less followers. Basically, most of us who work hard at our blogs and aren’t famous for it.

I’ve been so busy, that I haven’t had time to answer the questions until now, but here we go!

Wishlist Wednesday #20 – Valentino Rockstud Shoes

Affilier

Normally, I’m not one to want an article of clothing or an accessory that is super well known or that everyone has (part of my problem with designer bags), but I’ve seen different variations of the Valentino Rockstud Shoes on different blogs lately, and…they just look so HOT.

Celebrity Fashion Lust #11 – Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi

The dress Amy Adams wore to the Screen Actors Guild Awards was everything her Golden Globes dress was not, for me.

Amy-Adams-dress-2014-Screen-Actors-Guild-Awards-5 When the cast got up on stage and I saw how this looked full-length…just stunning. I love how it’s classic and modern at the same time. And the bright blue color, j’adore! Especially with the red lip.

Is spending money on designer handbags worth it?

Not so much a New Year’s resolution, but since the being-unemployed-and-having-no-money-and-then-getting-a-job-and-making-a-lot-less-money-than-before thing, I’m trying to spend my money more wisely (to varying degrees of success).

I know they say to make your investment pieces your shoes and handbags. My tendency, however, is to buy a lot of clothing rather than pay for quality and have fewer items. (I can’t help it! I see cute things and my fingers order them without my brain engaging! I could never even pretend to be French.)

The thing is that, like with the Chloé Susanna boots, I just can’t reconcile paying the price of a trip to Europe on a pair of shoes. That’s not to say I haven’t ever paid what I consider too much money on a pair of shoes or have only cheap handbags. But I do prefer buying lesser known or, preferably, indie designers. I don’t like advertising for a brand. The one bag I have that has a well-known name on it (thought it’s a canvas bag), I wear that side on the inside.

(I do confess the desire to one day own at least one pair of Manolos or Jimmy Choos or Louboutins.)

So, given my usual aversion to status bags, I am surprised by my recent fascination with them.

Two bloggers that I read have both been posting looks with their Chanel quilted flap bags. There is no way to hide that this is a Chanel bag. If I wore it backwards, there would be no point. (Not that I could afford any of them even used.) But look, there is something so undeniably special and fashionable about them.

Celebrity Fashion Lust #8

Celebrity Fashion Lust #6

I have a love/hate relationship with Jennifer Lawrence, but, like, I think I’d also want to be best friends with her. And I was one of the few people to immediately adore her haircut.

Her fashion trail on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire press tour has been sizzling, but I’m drawn to this pretty simple number by Proenza Schouler.

I think it’s the mod-ness of it, that appeals to me so much. I adore anything vintage-y. And those shoes don’t hurt, either. Phwoar!!

What do you think of this dress?

I feel like I just won the lottery!!

When the H&M website was already overloaded 10 minutes before noon, when the Isabel Marant for H&M collection was supposed to launch online, I pretty much gave up all hope of getting anything.

Still, I told myself I would try for 15 minutes after it was officially noon and see what happens. Well, this is what happened.

Isabel

For the record, because I’m weak (and stupid) (and because it was still available), I got the dress AND the silver skirt. Because maybe it’ll be long enough. And if not, I can always return it.
