Currently Loving (August 2011)

It’s that time of month again: here are 11 things that I am loving right now.  Links and more information are all below–enjoy!

1. Valentino Python Rockstud Python Pumps - neimanmarcus.com 2. ASOS Pleated Maxi Skirt - buy it here! 3. Blue Raspberry Snowcone Shower Gel - philosophy.com 4. rachel zoe natalie blouse - piperlime.com 5. Floating City Cape - freepeople.com 6. Giorgio Armani Beauty Eyes To Kill Mascara 7. Karl Lagerfeld for Macy's - nymag.com 8. Prada 'Baroque' Round Sunglasses - nordstrom.com 9. lanvin happy mini pop python bag - barneys.com 11. hazel & dewey - 70 South Broadway, Denver Colorado
1. Valentino Rockstud Python Flats (neimanmarcus.com) – A flat version of my most-loved kitten heels and in python?! Gorgeous, pretty, love.
2. ASOS Pleated Maxi (asos.com) – So. I created this little image about 10 days ago and meant to post it before my last ‘outfit of the day’, which…didn’t happen. Pardon the redundancy here, my dears!  But hey, I do love the skirt (and judging from the comments, I’m glad you all loved it too!).

3. Blue Raspberry Snow Cone Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Bubble Bath (philosophy.com) – Philosophy is well-known for their fun, limited edition scents that they come out with every season (Cinnamon Red Hots! Chocolate Easter bunnies!), but this scent is hands down my favorite of all time. It’s so sweet and juicy! (plus take 10% off with code “FRIENDS”)
4. Rachel Zoe Natalie Tie Collar Blouse (piperlime.com) – Say what you will about the boho-tastic Californian stylist, but her new clothing, shoe, and handbag collection has been making waves (ha, get it?) in the fashion world. It is with good reason, too: it’s full of gorgeous coats, beautiful capes, sophisticated blouses, and perfect pants cut in her signature wide-leg flare style.  Love this leopard-print bow blouse!
5. Free People City Floating Cape (freepeople.com) – Capes are cool, cozy, and set to be the coat-shape of the season–isn’t this one divine?

6. Giorgio Armani Eye To Kill Mascara (giorgioarmanibeauty.com) – There are lots of fancy mascaras out there (and I’ve tried them all, I swear!) but this is my current favorite.  It lengthens and volumizes while leaving lashes soft–not stiff, woohoo!  It also doesn’t bother my sensitive eyes.
7. Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s (nymag.com) – While reactions to the collection have been a bit mixed, there are a few pretty, standout pieces in the limited edition line (like this dress, and this one too!). The price points seem decent too, with most items falling between $50 to $70–look for it at a Macy’s near you on August 31st.
8. Prada ‘Minimal Baroque’ Round Sunglasses (nordstrom.com) – I love a good pair of fun sunglasses, and when I spied these pretty puppies in pictures of Prada’s Spring 2011 runway show I was immeeeediately smitten.  The rococo-swirly arms and big, round shades make these both cool and comfy, and I reach for them whenever I need to make a change-up from my tighter-fitting cat-eyes shades.
9. Lanvin Happy Mini Pop Python Bag (barneys.com) – Slithery-snake prints are set to be a huge upcoming trend this fall, and this bag keeps the scaly material super pretty with a nice, gold metallic sheen. Only someone like Mr. Alber Elbaz could find a fancy gold metallic python to kill and make into a beautiful bag, mmhm. ;)
10. Fantasy Fur Cuffs (asos.com) – Even though the cold weather of winter is still a ways away, I grabbed these cuffs as soon as I saw them pop up on asos.com. They attach easily to the sleeve of any jacket (or hey, even a long-sleeve sweater or sweater dress) and are a super fun way to keep old jackets and coats looking fresh for under $30. So easy!  (And if you like these, make sure to check out the fur collars, too!)
11. Hazel & Dewey – I found this new charming boutique last month while wondering down Broadway here in Denver.  They describe themselves as a “modern mercantile” that “curates quality goods that are courageously designed, for gifts, guests and hosts alike.” and indeed, they do–while the store itself isn’t big, the selection is super cool.  Find everything from pretty stationary to unique bowls and dish towels–if you love the housewares in Anthropologie or are looking for a unique gift, you will LOVE this!


What’s on your “lust list” for this month? Share in the comments! :)

    Hm. I think their being comfortable might be a good justification. I mean, hot and comfortable is always called for, right?

  • ggshoe

    Beautiful compilation! The tweed dress is on my list with a couple other pieces from the collection, is a basic must have dress. the maxi skirt is beautiful, I have my eye on the one from Missoni for Target.
    Thanks for sharing!
    : )

    Sheridan – me too! my coat closet is a lil' bit embarrassing, heh.

    Tangled In Texas – thank you, and same here! I'm happy that leopard is now considered to be more of a "classic" print, so hopefully it will stick around for awhile…'cuz I've already made quite the investment, ack!

    B.Inspired – ooh, good picks! I'm so happy that pointy-toe pumps have been coming back in style, they've always been my favorite. And I do love a good bow blouse–ASOS has tons that are so pretty, so pretty.

    Annabelle – I hope you find one! I won't ever say that an expensive pair of shoes is "worth" it, but they really are my favorites and so comfy to wear, too.

    ChiffonLaceLeather – YES.

    Lissy – Same here. I've convinced myself that pointy-toes and studs go with everything, yes? But I did have quite a few weird looks when I tried to wear them to the gym…just kidding.

    (Um. Kind of.)

  • Lissy

    I too have the Valentino rock stud kitten heels and they have become my most worn shoe…I looovveee them! I did recently see several of the flat versions (at Bergdorf's in NYC) and have been giving serious thought to picking up a pair.

  • ChiffonLaceLeather

    I need the Prada 'Minimal Baroque' Round Sunglasses in my life

  • Annabelle

    I have been lusting so hard after all of those Valentino studded shoes since they came out! Still trying to find a justification to buy them…

  • B.Inspired

    I am currently wanting a pair of knock out patent leather pointy toe pumps in bordeaux. And some replacement booties for the Fall and Winter. Maybe a bow front blouse if only I can make it not look like I am about to become a member of the AARP. YIKES!

  • Tangled In Texas

    Love your pretty picks!

    Right now, I am loving anything leopard print! I love leopard anyway, so I am thrilled that it is everywhere right now.

    This hot weather has me completely uninspired as far as outfits go, so I would love some cooler temperatures. I am looking forward to knee-high boots, cozy sweaters, and leggings!

  • Sheridan

    Everything on this list is so pretty! I love the Free People coat the most though, I have a obsession with coats : )
