Monthly Favorites | January 2014

posted on: 1.31.2014

I'm not going to bother saying the usual things one says at the end of the month, because you already know the drill. ;)

Here are my five favorites for the month of January:

Favorite lip product:

Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc Lip Gel in Voilà!
This Marc Jacobs lipstick (or lip gel, as he calls it) in Voilà is the perfect bright pink color.

Favorite fragrance:

Bath & Body Works Body Fragrance Mist in Twisted Peppermint
This Bath & Body Works spray was a Christmas gift (and, unfortunately, limited edition). But it smells divine!

Favorite discovery:

St. Ives Lotion Spray in Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract
I'd been wanting to try a spray-on body lotion for a while, and I'm so glad I did! This one by St. Ives is super moisturizing and smells so good (and perfect for those gotta-get-out-the-door-fast days)!

Favorite TV show:

Sherlock
I'm almost completely caught up and I can't stress enough how OBSESSED I am. (source)

Favorite song:

"The Mother We Share" by Chvrches has been in my head all month long.

Yea or Nay | Fringe

Yea or Nay | Fringe
Sharon Wauchob dress / Ann Demeulemeester fringe shirt / The Row crop shirt / Yves Saint Laurent skinny pants / Current/Elliott super skinny jeans / Christian Louboutin ankle boots /  Topshop black sandals / ASOS duffel bag / Kendra Scott turquoise necklace / CÉLINE black sunglasses 

I like to think I have a pretty open mind when it comes to all matters sartorial. Even if I wouldn't personally wear a particular trend or style of clothing, I can still appreciate the artistry of it. But one trend I have never understood is fringe. It just doesn't hold any appeal whatsoever for me. I know I'm probably in the minority with this opinion, but there you have it. This is a trend in which I will most definitely not be partaking.

What say you - yea, or nay?

Forever 21 t-shirt + boots + necklace, American Eagle jeggings, Brandy Melville cardigan, DITA glasses, Rebecca Minkoff bag

I have this weird talent - I'm able to identify a Van Halen song on the radio within seconds of hearing it, despite the fact that I never listened to them at all while I was growing up. My husband likes to tease me about it, and recently he bought me this t-shirt as a bit of a joke. I'm not complaining, though - it's super comfy and, quite frankly, makes me feel a bit like a rock star. ;)

What's a weird talent that you have? I'd love if you shared in the comments below.

Currently Craving | Proenza Schouler PS1 Medium Leather Bag

Proenza Schouler PS1 Medium Leather Bag
Bag of my dreams, come to me. (source)

It's been a while since I've lusted after a bag so fervently. But the PS1 medium leather bag by Proenza Schouler has definitely got me smitten. I know it's been around for quite some time now, but I've only recently taken a shine to it. I love how simple it is, while still being really cool looking. How I wish I could have it sitting in my closet right now. 

What are you currently craving? Let me know in the comments below!

It's been a while since my last outfit of the day post, hasn't it? It's been difficult to get any good shots since the time change, as it's always dark out when I get off of work. #bloggerproblems, am I right?

I hope everyone has a great week! :)
