Polished Perfection


Good morning, loves! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I'm back from the beach and finally ready to get back to work. Being that it's September now, and fashion week no less, I think that means it's time to kick off the flip flops and dial up the style meter a few notches.  First thing on my list is to finally track down the Chanel bag I've been looking for since my birthday back in July. Wish me luck :)

What key item are you lusting  for this season?

Sadly a Chanel bag is out of the question for me but I did treat myself to a similar looking Kate Spade bag. It was love at first sight! xo

I am always lusting for shoes, but this autumn I've finally changed my mind and I would love a cape...Yep, Dawn, it is September, there is no way back into summer, we will just be dreaming about it for the next 9 months :D. Have a lovely day :* I was looking for your post yesterday, then I remembered you are celebrating labor day...

With love... said...

This season it is Jo Malone scents for me, both for the home and for the body. Am looking forward to visiting the London Shop.

Have a great week Dawn.

I'm shopping for some knee high black boots.. I look forward to the beautiful days ahead but I'm not ready for the cold grey days ahead.

Love that Chanel bag! I thought you already bought it? :) Keep us posted on how the search is going.

Glad you had a nice weekend and enjoyed a random text in the midst of it!

Hi Dawn! Gorgeous bag! What a lovely piece to be looking for! Don't know what is first on my list, need several things for fall and can't wait to start the search for some soft pieces ... that's one of the pleasures of fall, isn't it? The clothing is c-o-z-y ;) Thank you, sweet, for the congratulations on the book illustration! Can't wait till October 9 when it's out! Have a lovely September week! xo Sandy

I feel like it's been ages since popping over!! That long weekend apparently felt longg ;) I can't believe it's September, but I'm really hoping to step up my shoe game (no pun intended) in the coming weeks!

SabinePsynopsis said...

I fear my feet have become too big for elegant shoes through months of wearing flip-flops... Good luck with the bag, Dawn! xoxo

Oh so fun that you still have to get your Chanel bag! There really is something about fall that calls for a polishing of your look. I always have a new pair of boots on my lust list for fall.
Much love,
B

Good luck with the Chanel bag!
I will say I am also lusting after two things this season, the classic chanel black bag and a tan Celine bag.

good luck! looking for a great classic trench coat or nice fall coat. If I could buy my dream one it would be a Donna Karan, but seeing how it cost more than rent, that won't be happening anytime soon ;)

hope all is well!
