"Perfume, like your clothes, can so much express your personality." -Christian Dior, from The Little Dictionary of Fashion
Above are the three perfumes I've purchased/gotten in the past few months - Miss Dior Cherie, Juicy Couture's original scent, and Treson In Love by Lancome. The latter was gifted to my mom, but she is very picky about her perfumes and it was too strong for her, so she gave it to me!

"Quality is essential to elegance. I will always put quality before quantity." -Christian Dior, from The Little Dictionary of Fashion
If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me mention buying two cardigans. Well, here they are! (Along with a few other goodies!)

I couldn't agree more with the quote I titled this post after. The most important and wonderful things in life are priceless - family, loved ones, friends, your health....but the next best thing after that is most certainly saving up and buying something you've been coveting for a while, like a trip to Spain or a ring you've been reblogging on Tumblr for what feels like years... So, without further ado, let's open these bags! ;)

"To reinvent a newly impeccable you in the most modern of outfits, don’t skip on makeup and be sure to have flawless skin and hair. That will have more impact than expensive clothes.” -Karl Lagerfeld

"I love things that age well - things that don't date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best." -Giorgio Armani
I love the Salvatore Ferragamo bow. I love it on the Varina flats; I love it on the Vara pumps; I love it on everything! A pair of Vara pumps is definitely a purchase I am going to make sometime soon, and I decided to get this headband to match them. :)

I am obsessed with huge sunglasses. I have a gray pair from Fendi, a tortoise pair from Dolce & Gabbana, and a black pair from Oscar de la Renta. A white pair was on my wishlist for an incredibly long time. Ideally, I wanted to add either a pair of Chanels or a pair of Diors to my collection, but I didn't think I'd be lucky enough to snag either brand at a good price. I was on the lookout for any oversized white sunglasses though, as I think they're a summer essential. I got these around a month ago, and I was so pleased!

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick." -Audrey Hepburn
I've read that the quote in my title is miss-attributed to Audrey Hepburn and that it is actually from a poem. It's still a lovely quote though! This post is going to be about all of the nail polishes I've picked up in the past two months. I've purchases a few O.P.I. colors and some Chanel polishes, so without further ado....

"I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it." -Audrey Hepburn

I was terribly bored the other day, so I decided to paint some Loubies. I am horrendous at drawing shoes, so I thought these turned out fairly decent, considering my general ineptitude with shoe art. I painted them in watercolor. Not bad for an hour's work, I think. :)
"Anything you do, work or pleasure, you have to do it with zest." -Christian Dior, from "The Little Dictionary of Fashion"
ANNOUNCEMENT: I changed my blogspot URL. It is now http://bergdorfprincess.blogspot.com, like my tumblr (http://bergdorfprincess.tumblr.com). This post is going to be devoted to all of my latest Juicy Couture purchases. I know a lot of people find Juicy to be tacky/young, but I really adore their clothing items and some of their accessories. Their velour sweatsuits may not be fashion forward, but they are extremely comfortable for lounging around. That being said, I wouldn't be caught dead with a velour logo handbag. I do love everything I purchased from them, though!
