A Taste of October

It has definitely been a while since I last shared my monthly purchases on the blog but in all honesty, most of the times I am just so eager to get to wear what I buy that I completely forget to take any photos. Those of you who happen to follow me on instagram might have already seen the bits & pieces of this month’s purchases, but I though I would take some pretty photographs anyway, especially as I had some beautiful leaves lying around the house. Yes, I gather them and spread them in the apartment as well, just to get a better feel of fall. I mean, warm tea and scented candles aren’t clearly enough ^^ Happy weekend! ♥

A Taste of October 01

Ready2Fall

It’s August, but the Sun didn’t get the memo yet, so it pretty much still feels like July outside. And I can’t seem to be able to enjoy it anymore. It may be way to soon for this, but I already started dreaming about Fall: Fall weather, Fall colors, Fall layers, cuddling beneath warm blankets, drinking hot chocolate and tea … everything sounds amazing to me right now. And the rain, oh how I miss the rainy days!

I can’t wait to start upgrading my Fall wardrobe in the following months, so here are some ideas that I wanted to share with you today. For more looks like these ones, feel free to check my Pinterest inspiration board.

I wish you all a wonderful week darlings and I’ll be back in a couple of days. I would love to hear your thoughts so feel free to leave a comment. I’d better start working already. Much love, O.

Yesterday was an amazing day for the fashion enthusiasts as the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival held in New York City kicked off with The Five Year Engagement premiere, a romantic comedy starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt.

Emily took on the Red Carpet looking lovely as ever in a Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2012 design.

Complementary Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and a black sparkling Valentino clutch accessorized the glamorous look.

Beauty wise, Emily opted for a sleek bun with a side part and for a pop of hot fuchsia color via her lips.

Victoria Justice – 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards

Victoria Justice attended the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards wearing one of my favorite colors this season, and one of my favorite looks of the award ceremony that took place in L.A., yesterday afternoon.

Victoria-Justice---Elizabeth-and-James

The Victorious young actress opted to wear a long sleeve Elizabeth and James Spring Jim blazer in a fresh tiger lily shade, which she paired with Elizabeth and James Colby tailored shorts with side pockets.

A delicate white shirt with a bow neck detail and the Valentino Crystal Embellished booties, enhanced the beauty of this shorts suit (one of the hot trends of the season).

Straightened hair, minimal jewelry and flawless make up, finished up the lovely look.

I think her appearance was incredible beautiful !

Ali Larter – 5th Annual Pieces of Heaven Art Auction

I love, love, love the YSL look Ali Larter donned on the Red Carpet on February 23, whilst attending The Art of Elysium Hosts 5th Annual “Pieces of Heaven” Art Auction. It’s simplicity at its best. And it is beautiful.

Ali-Larter---YSL

The refined bright yellow sleeveless mini number, was styled with a chic thin tan belt, which tightened the loose dress and accentuated the waist line .

A neutral toned Chloe Sally clutch, crafted from exotic python, a pair of Valentino studded latice slingback pumps and amazing David Webb jewelry, accessorized the minimal look.

Ali Larter Ring

Ali styled her chic blond bob in soft waves and wore a bold red lip color to complement the yellow dress. Yellow and red never fail together.
