One Day

It is my firm belief that as long as Lone Scherfig continues to make movies based in London & Paris, and that I can continue to see each and every one that I will lead a very beautiful and fulfilled life. Well, thats my belief anyway. I heart Lone Scherfig and her style of film making. Most especially with An Education as that is my all time favorite movie, one I could watch time and time again.  I  loved One Day. I laughed, I cried, but mostly I was transported during every scene. . If I can convince you of any one thing to do this week, its to see this movie (preferrably at matinee time like I just did. $5 to see a movie at the cinema?? crazy good deal!!).

The one website you don’t know about…

and should! BHLDN (pronounced beholden) the brain child of Anthropologie & Urban Outfitters, catering (but not limited to) wedding attire is my new drool worthy obsession.

My choice picks below:

Modern Mythology Gown

Pleated Fantasy Gown

Three-By-Three Clutch

Platinum Promise Gloves

Paramount D’Orsays

Feather Trimmed d’Orsays

Tied-And-True Booties

Polka-Dot d’Orsays

Liberty D’Orsays

Wreathed Laurel Barefoot Sandals

Also coveting just about everything from their accessories line, as well as a few racy-lacy choices for the boudoir!

Chucks

I have been on the look out for a pair of Converse in my usual taupe’s or grey’s since seeing them on the feet of almost every Parisian, male and female last fall. However now must add white to the list. Leave it to Garance Dore to revive my hunt for the perfect pair of Converse…

Happy Birthday Coco!


Happy Birthday to the first lady of fashion; Coco Chanel. Plan on honoring the ultimate style icon by spritzing some Chanel No. 5 and popping in my copy of Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky.

Anticipating Fall…

Crisp air, cinnamon spiced apple cider, and those fabulous shades of golden reds and amber that seem to radiate from the sky and trees… pretty much sums up my absolute favorite season. I know its still the middle of August and I should be doing what most people do around this time, which is soak up as much of summers warmth before things turn cold again. But, Im 100% unabashedly ready to put summer behind me in anticipation of the most beautiful time of year.
