Dolce, Dulce, Dolci

As much as I love chocolates, jewelry and romantic dinners... shoes make an even sweeter surprise. Especially when they are Dolce & Gabbana, seude and in the shape of a pretty platform.
I finally got to experience snow this weekend, as in I'm walking in a Winter Wonderland kind of snow. We got 5 inches, roughly. I played, I ran, I threw snowballs and did plenty of sledding too.
The first fall was on Friday night
Saturday morning
and, Today.

Me, Muchacha

I felt like a French school girl wearing this the other day. I was instantly drawn to my Parka upon waking up, wanting to work it in somehow for a pre-Spring look. It's been a lot colder and harder to pull looks together here versus when I was in Miami, but I welcome the challenge. Thankfully, for every few days of cold... one warm one pops out to play. What are you most excited for come Spring? For me it's shorts (lots and lots of them) floral prints, skirts, mini dresses and hats. I also want to get back into sandals and flats. It's been a while...

I feel it's due time to give back to you, my lovely readers... one more time. Remember last time with Coach?
Well, this time it will be a large bottle of perfume. Now, I want to keep it a surprise but I will say you can find it in my collage above.

Can you guess which one?
Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Chanel or Sarah Jessica Parker?

Your comments, friendship, feedback and tremendous support deserve a little recognition in the form of an aromatic gift.
Also, this time the contest will be open to everyone. US and International alike.

So keep an eye out for this stellar giveaway..... Coming Soon!

View of the Summer Sky

The galactic shimmer that forms the iconic Mickey Mouse illustration on my shirt makes me think of Space and all things magical. No?

Under the Milky Way

Can't take these heels off. Funniest part is I got them over a month ago and am only just now wearing them. Closet cleanups are the best. For those who were inquiring in my last post on the socks, they're lambs wool from Bloomingdale's last Christmas. These partially fingerless gloves are not only fierce but functional. I can easily access my iPod and cell while still keeping my hands warm and toasty. The forever 21 boutique piece was previously worn here.

Living the charmed life is not about material possessions or status, it's about being a good person. If you can give any assistance or help to the people in Haiti, feel free to do so with the Red Cross here.

And every night we'll watch the Stars

Recently I have been: watching the night sky just after the rain clears, singing along to Britney Spears, watching My So-Called Life while snacking on cereal, dancing in the rain, writing inspirational quotes into my journal, supporting Haiti, running in the park with Sweety, making strawberry smoothies, loving knee-socks, lounging in my vintage Mickey sweater, playing with kittens, tuning in to Golden Girls reruns, painting my nails Gothic black a la Lincoln Park by OPI, practicing my whistling, settling into my favorite corner in Borders with a pile of fashion magazines, mocha coffee for breakfast, becoming makeup obsessed at Sephora, reading Nylon, hoping for Alexa Chung to make a US comeback, adoring Catbreath's collaboration with Obey, finding my high school yearbooks and reminiscing, waking up to sunshine and warmth.

The Little Match Girl

I've been craving a blanket-like accessory all Winter long. I finally found one. I love the comfort of just throwing on one big piece over your other layers. It's systematically comfortable and cool.

I got these very Superhero worthy over the knee boots about a month ago. I finally got the opportunity to debut them, at a Barbecue party in the park yesterday. Roasting marshmallows, listening to mix CD's with friends and laughing at the silliest of things made for a fun night.

As a kid one of my favorite fairy tales was The Little Match Girl.

Many thanks for the weardrobe 100 feature - the best of 2009 street style
from the top fashion blogs online.
