Currently



book
I'm about to start reading Nina Garcia's Little Black Book of Style. Who knows? Maybe I'll learn something.

song
Into My Arms by Nick cave. Actually, this is my favorite song of all time. I don't allow myself to indulge in it too often, so it remains special. But I listened to it today and it's as amazing as ever.

frequently worn outfit or item
Elie Tahari denim jackets. Dressing up a t-shirt or dressing down a silk dress. I love the feminine cuts and all the cute details.

perfume
Parfumerie Generale Bois Blond. It's not necessarily a spring scent and not very feminine. It's all wood, all the time, and I can't get enough.

food
Tofu in every shape and form. What kind of person gets tofu cravings?

drink
I probably need to just remove this category. I only drink water.

guilty pleasure
Reading people's personal blogs. We live in strange times.

bane of my existence
The DMV.

anticipation
A shopping spree.

wishlist
By the time I saw these perfect Burberry sandals on Neiman's web site, they were already out of my size (7.5). I'll need to hunt them down in person. Must.Have.These.


Please tell me about your current loves!

  6. Katie- I hope you found my dry skin posts. Basically, go for something with lots of shea butter.

  7. Kim- I've been on a Shalimar kick, too. I have a bottle of Shalimar light on the way. I'll definitely try layering.
