J'adore the Lacoste. And that Oasis Stephanie Bag is simply calling my name. Gorgeous finds, darling! I'd say that drawstrings are a delight!

By the way...Congratulations Carrie, you're the winner of Cafe Fashionista's Charmed and Dangerous Giveaway! :)

Nice selection- the Chloe boots are fab!

Have a nice weekend, CC!

Ela said...

What a fabulous promotion from Swatch. Makes me wish I was on Facebook and Twitter!
I used to despise drawstrings when I was younger, perhaps because the jackets were never designed the way they are now. So I love what shape and interest they can bring.
Happy weekend, CC! xx

Great post!

I love the jackets, cinched at the waist -- it creates such a feminine and tailored look, even though it can come off as casual, in some cases. I adore the Mike & Chris jacket!

Have a fantastic weekend :)

Carrie said...

Hi Carrie. Thank you so much for the fashion advice. I think I'm gonna go buy some leopard tights and see how it looks with a black dress. Can't wait to test it out!

This is another fabulous post. I've seen these tops in stores but didn't bother to buy it. Doesn't really suit my body type. Hope you're having a great weekend, Carrie.

Fabulous post! Loving the heeled boots! They would be so perfect for fall!

Gabbi said...

Love little drawstrings on clothing! Adds such a pretty adjustable touch and I adore when I can tie it into a nice little bow. I also am such a nostalgic fan of Swatch Watches... it was the first watch I ever owned. Pink and blue I believe? :)

Did you go get your ice cream dear CC?xo
