OK and i just noticed you're wearing Lanvin boots: ahhhhhhh maaizingggggg!!1 they're gorgeous. adore the silver details and mr. elbaz is too cute for words. i love him. he once said his clothes were meant to whisper, not yell. i really love the image that connotes for his pieces. timeless. elegance.

You look amazing. Very daring to wear such a sheer top! But I love it paired with sheer tights too and your boots are CRAZY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

how was Toronto?!!!

This week's weather has been amazing! Those Spring shots were taken Tuesday- incredible day, eh?! Most people go for ice cream in the early spring days...but i can't have ice cream so i treated myself to gorgeous flowers lol.! Theyre on my desk and they look amazing :)

Thanks for feedback/praise on the new place :) I'm sooo glad you like it!!! :) Truthfully, apart from some furniture purchases...i had a lot of the accent pieces already-- they just look way better here than they ever did in my room in the last place lol! i also really committed myself to unpacking i was pretty much "ready" in a week...i hate living in boxes for too long :)

The trench shot is SO YOU! As a matter of fact, i thought of you when i posted it!!! I'm like, this is SO Hélène! ;)

My week has been OK...but it got shitty yesterday...i woke up with this toe situation on Tuesday and by Tuesday night it was unbearable. went to the doctor yesterday...and i have an infection on my baby toe :( and i have to take antiobiotics for 10 days. i have a really awful history with antibiotics (will explain when we meet ;)) and this batch is kind of giving me a hard time so im feeling a little under the weather right now. im sooo hibernating today lol! the blinds are closed and im doing some writing until 12 when there's a movie a TV i want to watch :) ughhhh the thought of 10 days of this...b r u t a l lol!!!
