BECAUSE THE SUMMER IS NOT OVER!

(Dress - Lulus.com, Bag - Asos, Shoes - Giuseppe Zanotti, YSL Arti Ring, Kitson Necklace) 


No, no, no, no!!! I simply refuse to believe that Summer is over! Honestly I really tried this year, I mean I looked at leopard print, I played with burgundies and browns, I tried on a few very cute winter jackets, jeez, I even bought a pair of fabulous dark purple pumps. Basically all of my usual tricks for making this transition a little less difficult, surely shoes alone should have done it:) Yet nothing! I suppose I am simply not ready to let go just yet. So, I bought this dress and fully intend to wear it well into December, ok maybe November:) 

If I can wear open-toe shoes it's still Summer, right?
Love,

SURRENDER TO THE BLUE




( The BF Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Jeans - J Brand, Nasty Gal Silk Shirt, Wedges - Topshop, Bracelets - Shopbelina.com)

So, I am in smack in the middle of renovating my apartment. It started as a very small project, all I really wanted to do is to replace some of the furniture and drapes, maybe freshen up the paint on the walls. Now it snowballed into this major project. When we replaced the bed room furniture, everything else we had in the room simply didn't go anymore, then we started noticing things in different rooms which needed to be repaired or changed, long story short we are doing the whole apartment:) As a result, I don't have a single full-length mirror in my apartment! Wow, never knew how much I rely on that thing:) So, this outfit came together as a result of a lot of guessing, Emil's suggestions and relying on the tiny little mirror in my bathroom. So, don't judge to harshly. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
Love,
Annabelle

TOYING WITH TRANSPARENCY


(Love Asymmetrical Dress - inlovewithfashion.com, Alexander Wang Noemi Booties, Asos Bag, Forever 21 Necklace, YSL Arti Ring)

I got this dress the other day and I have to say I am absolutely in love. The asymmetrical hem, the sheerness of the fabric and of course the color all come together to create, what in my opinion is, a perfect dress. I decided to pair it with boots to sort of edge it out a little and to also give the outfit a little more weight. But of course the possibilities are endless, the other day I had it over a one-piece bathing suit and a pair of metallic flats for casual cocktails at the beach. Now I'm thinking a nice leather jacket and a pair of high-heeled booties, for those cooler Fall days. What do you think? 

I wanted to thank everyone for their sweet emails and comments in light of my recent surgery. I can honestly now say I am 100 percent back to my normal self. Much in opinion due to your constant support, which means more, to me, than words can describe.

Love,
Annabelle

FALL FICTION





(Top - Marc by Marc Jacobs, Skirt - Romwe, Bag - Asos, Necklase - ShopBelina.com, Pumps - Steve Madden)



Looking through some of my latest posts I definitely see a theme developing.... Yellow and animal print seem to be the obsessions du jour... So, when I saw these Steve Madden pumps I simply couldn't resist. I love a thick heel and a hidden platform, for me, this combination provides the maximum amount of comfort for a shoe on such a tall heel. God, I must be getting old if I am talking about shoes and comfort:)

As I slowly begin to accept that fall is here, I moving on to a more autumn appropriate palette. One of my favorite color combination is cream, reddish-burgundy, black and brown. I thought that a little bit of animal print might give this outfit a fun twist. What do you guys think? I also have a new found respect for higher waist-lines. As much as I adore low-rise jeans, lately I am attracted to a the level of sophistication higher waist-lines bring to outfits. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am not yet ready for high-rise skinny jeans, I tried a pair on last week and Emil almost died of laughter, but skirts and trousers are definitely a go:)

On a more personal note, I had minor surgery last Sunday which prevented me from posting more. I am doing better now, so I promise to get back to my usual routine!

Love,
Annabelle

I CHANGE SPOTS JUST TO HIDE WHO I AM

(Zara Animal Print Blouse, Asos Handbag, Skinny Jeans in Gold, Giuseppe Zanotti Heels, YSL Arti Ring, Planet Blue Bracelets)




I would like to start by congratulating A Heel in Mint for winning International Blouse & Pendant Giveaway! 

Last week a lovely package came for me, I opened it up only to find the most gorgeous pair of goldish-yellow jeans in the world! I of course love the color but I also love the way they fit, just the right amount of spandex, if you know what I mean:) What do you guys think, aren't they absolutely fabulous! I decided to pair it with my new Zara shirt for more drama. Love animal print for fall, although I refuse to believe Summer is over! It happens every year, I wear my sandals until December, at which point my toes fall off and I am forced to accept that Winter is here! Oh well, however long it takes:)

I hope you are having a wonderful week,
Love,
Annabelle
