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.

*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.*

I’m just a bit obsessed with stripes. I’m not sure that you knew that about me. Just in case you’re not familiar…

DSC_1653 With flash 20131001_160514_1-2 I have one or two Marinière, or Breton stripe, shirts (like so [Petit Bateau is classic, obvi], but lately I have been hankering for a Breton stripe dress.

(The history of the Marinière is really interesting, if you’re a nerd like me. It was originally the uniform of the French navy [hence the “Marinière”], who hailed from Brittany [hence the “Breton stripe”. If you want to read more, I loved this article.)

Wishlist Wednesday #22 – The perfect red lip eye makeup

For this Wishlist Wednesday, I’m going with something a little more abstract/theoretical. We all know how much I love my red lipstick, but I’ve yet to nail down the perfect red lip eye makeup.

I know it’s very French to wear red lips with no eye makeup, just mascara, but I feel like my eye shape and features look washed out and dull without both shadow and liner. But then when I use very nude, natural colors, I feel like I need something more.

Then the other night I saw this photo of Olivia Palermo (I don’t even really know who she is or why she’s famous, but she’s gorgeous, has great style, and her boyfriend fiance is a stone fox.)

The perfect red lip eye makeup
OOH LA LA!

Wishlist Wednesday #12

Despite the fact that I have finally received my first paycheck (HURRAH!!!), my shopping still has to remain wishlists. I have things I need to do with my money first.

And buying a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress is not one of them.

BUT LOOK AT IT.

Amelia Silk Combo Wrap Dress in simple stripe combo

It’s the DVF wrap dress taken to the next level. It’s just amazing.

I’m a big fan of mixing patterns, but I’m not that good at it. This is the perfect cheat! And I just adore the pop of color. And the flared skirt. UGH. SO PERFECT.
