We had a gorgeous Saturday in DC this weekend so Z and I took advantage and walked to Georgetown for a little shopping. I finally got to try on the sparkly Nell flats I’ve been obsessing over (fit TTS, really comfortable, yay! Hopefully they’ll be making it my way come birthday time…) and we played with various scents at Sephora in search of a new fall fragrance. I’m really loving the seasonal transition at the moment – it’s actually going to be cold enough for tights this week! Here are a few other things I’m loving at the moment as well…
Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo (my current fave dry shampoo, it’s actually invisible and smells great!)
Dior DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum (I’ve been using this for a couple months now as a primer under my mascara and also at night as a lash conditioner – I definitely notice fuller, thicker lashes. I don’t think they are particularly longer, but I also have short Asian eyelashes that don’t seem to want to grow…)
Gucci Guilty (after testing a number of scents, I think this is my new fall fave! Described as: “A sheer, floral-oriental fragrance, it opens with a bright burst of citrus and a dangerous hint of black pepper. This arresting introduction gives way to full-throttle femininity as its heart pulses with fruity and floral notes. The fragrance dries down to a rich, ambery base with notes of patchouli. The overall effect is young, stylish, and eminently wearable—a daring edge of sexiness and sensuality that captures the essence of Gucci.”)
Kate Spade Twirl capsule collection (inspired by the new fragrance Twirl, I’m especially loving the sparkly Twirl Karolina heels, Twirl Bow Cuff, perfectly red Twirl Lipstick, and festive Twirl Margie Clutch
YSL Muse, Balenciaga 10th Anniversary Iridescent First, Proenza Schouler Large PS1, Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle (I’m convinced my next splurge bag needs to be a color other than black or brown… right now I’m particularly attracted to iconic bags in shades of purple – despite the fact that the Wang bag color is called “ocean blue” is is most definitely a rich, dark purple. I spent a good 10 minutes petting it a Barneys this weekend – so not “me” but so pretty.)
Parker Double Flare Sleeve Dress (I don’t quite have it in me yet to cheat on my beloved DVF tabalah tunics but this dress is definitely close to being on the list of dresses-i-love-and-therefore-need-to-own-in-every-print-ever-created. I love the feminine, relaxed silhouette and how its perfect worn bare-legged and with tights/boots as it gets colder… It’s also on sale in cream!)
What are you loving this month?
