p.s.  I’m back home on the east coast — in a spot that’s the complete opposite of these gorg photos.  I’ll be pretty MIA over the next week so my apologies in advance.  Hope you’re all swell…

Finally, how amazing would the Jeffrey Campbell PIXIE look in cheetah fur?

Jeffrey Campbell PIXIE-Solestruck

Well, start saving your $, because Solestruck will have them in about a month.  IMHO, far superior to the sold-out Jeffrey Campbell 99 Fur in Cheetah, these are going on my lust list.

Personally, leopard/cheetah/animal (excluding zebra — I don’t do black & white vertical stripes) print will always be a staple in my closet.  I could walk out the door wearing any of the above shoes with a plain Hanes t-shirt and skinny jeans and still feel put together.  Hail to the power of shoes.

Are you over leopard print or still on the bandwagon like me?

Which shoe above is your fav?

xoxo, becs

I spend my time just thinkin ’bout you

Everything is quote_Yimmys YayoImage via Yimmys Yayo

“Sunlight creeps in between the curtains
Lose the sheets there’s no time for sleep
I lie, I pretend ‘til I’m almost certain
It’s a beautiful world

Lately I’ve been feeling uninspired which is the reason for the lack of recent updates.  Being uninspired and unmotivated is a fast way for things to start looking like the movie “Groundhog Day”.  So to my little lost inspiration, I hope you return soon for the sake of this blog… and my sanity.

My Favorite Things

Chicisimo

I know a number of you have been featured on Chicisimo, but I wanted to thank the lovely Maria for recently choosing and posting some of my looks on her site.  Maria also just launched Chicisimo Brides, providing fab inspiration pics for wedding dresses.  I’ve discovered some amazing new blogs from Chicisimo, so check her sites out!

Another thank you goes to the always complimentary Antoine of florilège d’esthète for passing along the One Lovely Blog Award.  He has an incredible way with words, making his writing and descriptions unparallel to anyone else.  Antoine, thanks for making me blush with your kind words…

Becs, Epitomesque “BOMBnextDoor” who Really knows How to make blow a dazzling/electrifying “Wind of Sexy Freshness” from L Aaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!!

And finally, the always hip and incredibly sweet Eden from Chic in the Tropics tagged me for a list of my 20 favorite things…

1.  COLOR – Red and black are my college colors, so I’ll always be a fan of those.  I’m also partial to blue.

2.  DESSERT – I’m actually not a big dessert or cake person, even though I have a sweet tooth for candy.  I don’t think I’ve ever had actual cake on my birthday… always ice cream cakes.  In fact, here’s my little Carvel ice cream cake I just had last week.

Birthday ice cream cake

3.  SMELL – I dig fruity scents like coconut and strawberry.  I also like vanilla.  My perfume at the moment is Versace Bright Crystal.

4.  FLOWER - Orchids and sunflowers

5.  ANIMAL – I love monkeys!  Whenever I go to the zoo, I love to watch them swing around.

MonkeysSan Diego Zoo

6.  MONTH - June because it’s my birthday and the start of summer

7.  BEVERAGE – My daily beverages include lots of water and Nestea.

8.  SHOES – Favorite shoes that I own are my Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties.  Shoe crushes are the Alexander Wang “Hanne” Triple Buckle Boots and Balmain Multi-zip Suede Boots.

9.  SNACK – If I want something sweet, I’ll eat Skittles or Sour Patch Kids.  If I’m craving something salty, which is usually the case, I’ll opt for popcorn or Kettle potato chips.

10.  SONG/S - Yea, I have too many favs, but I’ll always love “Sway” by The Perishers, “With or Without You” by U2 and “Friday I’m in Love” by The Cure.  And no matter how many times they’ve been overplayed on the radio, I still dig “Just Dance” by Lady Gaga and “Live Your Life” by T.I. and Rhianna.

11.  BOOKWhere the Wild Things Are (can’t wait for the movie!)

12.  FRUIT - Pineapple and mandarin oranges

13.  HAIRSTYLE – Honestly on a daily basis I don’t do anything with my hair.  I let it air dry after washing it and I’ll fess up that I don’t even brush my hair… until it gets too knotty to stand, and then I’ll whip out my brush.  The most I do with my hair is twist it into a tight bun if I want to add some waves.  On occasion, I do like to throw on a headband every now and then.

UO headband

14.  PIECE/S OF CLOTHING – Skinny jeans, leather jackets, oversized blazers, corset tops and men’s plaid shirts (like the Stapleford Buffalo Work shirt via Urban Outfitters below) .

15.  STORES TO SHOP - Since my mall trips have steadily declined, my fav online shops are Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Nasty Gal Vintage, Shopbop, Oaknyc and RevolveClothing.

16.  SEASON – Summer lovin’

17.  HOBBY - Dancing, following college basketball, dreaming up ideas for my future screenplay, watching bad reality TV, discovering new music bands or artists and of course shopping and flea marketing.

18.  THINGS TO COLLECT - Quotes.  I have an ever growing collection full of movie/TV, song, life, friendship and love quotes.

19.  MOVIE - Oh I could never just pick one, so off the top of my head, my favs are Goonies, Sixteen Candles, Dirty Dancing, The Rock, The Notebook, The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses, The Hangover and I Love you, Man.

20.  RESTAURANT – Any Italian restaurant.  I could eat pasta everyday!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend!  The June Gloom has passed and we are now enjoying the sunny LA weather again.  Yesterday, I saw “My Sister’s Keeper” and cried my eyes out.  OK, maybe I didn’t ball, but the tears were flowing every 5 min. or so.  If you like beautiful slow songs, then check out a sampling of the soundtrack.
