"These Are a Few of My Fayyyy-vorite Things ..."

I must say, shopstyle.com is my new best friend. How else could you possibly find all these terribly cute items, all in one place? Here's a few of my favorites for this week:


Gareth Pugh: Two-tone Shoe Boots



YSL: Cage Sandals with Ties



Marc by Marc Jacobs: Tri-colour Suede Clutch



Kelly Ewing: Mid Hitched Grey and White Skirt



Manolita Watlin: Painterly Print Silk Skirt



Stella McCartney: Degrade Sequin Leggings



Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti: Green Knee Length Goddess Dress


Oh, I love each and every one of these items for a different reason, but that Kelly Ewing skirt? I don't think I've ever seen draping that fantastic, and if you're an avid follower of my blog, you know that insane draping gets me every time! The watercolors on the Manolita Watlin skirt are fantastic, as well. And that Philosophy dress? I honestly could not give you one thing I didn't absolutely love about it. Both pairs of shoes captured, or rather demanded, my attention from the moment I saw them. They're so striking in two completely different ways. The Marc Jacobs clutch caught my eye because of the colors and the fabric ... simply gorgeous! I didn't even need to look at the designer on the leggings; I knew it was Stella immediately. Aren't they lovely? I would kill to wear them with a bubble hem dress.

Also, I'd like to show you one of the pictures I discovered in the June edition of ELLE (I believe) magazine. There's a whole spread, but I just absolutely adored this skirt. I searched all over the internet to find this picture, but the time it took was well worth it. Introducing Louis Vuitton's Cotton and Silk Lurex Skirt:



Oh, one more thing: I've decided that I'm going to try an outfit post! A lot of commenters have been asking, and I'm sort of wierdly excited ... I believe it's going to be my next post, so keep checking back!

  19. I love the two-toned shoe boots! So nice!
    My only question is if this pair of shoes will elongate or make the legs more chunky-looking? Hmmm....not until I try them out, I guess.

    Thank you for posting all the nice pictures and bring these great pieces to our attention. :)

    Cheers,
