"Since the beginning of civilization perfume has always been used and has been considered an essential part of woman's attraction." -Christian Dior, from The Little Dictionary of Fashion

I've been wanting J'adore Dior for quite some time, and I'm so happy to finally have it! I also have my two little Chloe sampler sized scents. :) I love perfume very much and I have a bajillion bottles haha.

"Fashion may be part of their world, but it's not their whole life. It's not everything." -Marc Jacobs

Hmmm, what could be inside this pretty gift box from Saks? ;)

"I believe to be successful at anything you have to give it a 100% commitment and that is what I still do to this day." -Miranda Kerr

I hope you all had a very happy holiday and have a healthy, successful, and joyful New Year! :)
I picked up a couple of bits and bobs (as my wonderful friend India would say haha :D) from Sephora and Victoria's Secret. I also have a bunch of amazing things to post about in the upcoming couple of days, but I can't take decent photos tonight because I don't have proper lighting.

"It is a gown in which your family sees you every is the first thing you wear to start the day, and it is so important to look always right especially in the intimacy of your home." -Christian Dior

I am certainly a believer in cute sleepwear. I agree with Mr. Christian Dior in that your sleeping garments are what you start and end the day in, so why shouldn't they be nice? :)

"I love red and I think it suits almost every complexion. It is good for any time, too." -Christian Dior

I have a serious affinity for cardigans. I just can't help myself when I see a cute cardigan! I got this Juicy Couture cardigan recently, and it is a lovely burgundy color.

"Dots...they are lovely, elegant, easy, and always in fashion. I never get tired of dots." -Christian Dior

I picked up this gorgeous blouse from What Goes Around Comes Around today!

Currently Coveting: Net-A-Porter Edition

I was browsing Net-A-Porter today, looking mostly at clothes (that is, tops and knits...because I am incapable of resisting a cute cardigan). I saw some stuff that I am absolutely in love with!

"Style is wearing an evening dress to McDonald’s, wearing heels to play football." - John Galliano

I finally picked up Chanel Pirate, and I recently also tried out April, May and June. I must say, I find the three new colors absolutely stunning and I'll be purchasing all of them. Pirate is a really pretty red; every time I catch a glimpse of my hands, I marvel at how nice the color looks!

Currently Coveting: Tibi, Juicy Couture, Marc by Marc Jacobs

I was browsing Tibi's website earlier and I saw a bunch of really beautiful things. I absolutely love Tibi. I only have a few things from the brand (two skirts, a blouse, and two cardigans) but they're all gorgeous pieces.

"I never look at fashion magazines. I find them incredibly boring. To me, reading a fashion magazine is the last thing I need to do. I've got books I need to read. More people should read books." - Vivienne Westwood

I just made a new blogspot post, but I decided to make another one lol. Yesterday I picked up Chanel's Rose Exuberant nail polish. I still have a lengthy wishlist of Chanel nail polish. The next one  want to purchase is Pirate. They already have May, April, and June in stores and I have to say, I am absolutely in love with every shade. I'm going to make a Chanel nail polish wishlist behind the cut. :)

"Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, and of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times." – Betsey Johnson

My order of Betsey Johnson socks finally came from HauteLook, so I figured I'd make a post about recent essentials I've gotten (read: socks, underwear, yoga/gym pants, lol....exciting). The socks have such cute packaging that I almost don't want to take them out! There are some other Betsey Johnson socks I want to get, as well. (I always want to shorten Betsey Johnson to BJ but that just doesn't sound right....ahem.)

"I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!" -Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly

I never got around to making this post, but here is the amazing birthday present my boyfriend got for me! :)

"No elegant woman follows fashion slavishly." -Christian Dior

I FINALLY got a pair of Tory Burch flats! The things in this post are partially my holiday gifts from my parents, but I picked them out so I asked to photograph them before they get put away for New Years. :) (In most Slavic countries, New Years is celebrated like Christmas, and we still do this even though we live in NYC - we put up a tree for New Year's and get presents at midnight.)

Currently Coveting: Prada and Bags

Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing well. I'm about to head off to class, and then the gym, so I figured I'd make a quick "Currently Coveting" post. :)

My Sunglasses Collection ♥

I got a couple of requests to do a post on here about my sunglasses, so I decided to take photos of all of them and share with you all! I have acquired eight pairs of designer sunglasses in the past few years (one of the pairs is not pictured above because they did not come with a box). I love them all :)

“Take care of yourself, be healthy, and always believe you can be successful in anything you truly want.” -Alessandra Ambrosio

I picked up my RueLaLa order from the post office today. I ordered a pair of sunglasses from Juicy Couture and I'm excited to show them to you! They're a bit whimsical, but I think they'll be so cute for the beach in the summer, or even just to spice up an outfit. I fell in love with these and I couldn't pass them up!
