kpeach said...

amazing picks-love them all-esp that grey corset top and fur vest-something about that striped mini calls to me too!
I'd wear the watch with all black-mini long sleeve dress and over the knee boots (stella please) to make it pop.

Erika said...

That Sequin Tank Dress and absolutely anything by PRVCY top my list. Love. Of course, I have been obsessed with Victoria Beckham since I was 10-years-old and she was better known as Posh Spice. When I spotted her on the cover of ELLE, I was thrilled. She only gets more posh with age! :)

Sher said...

Oh my favourite is the miu miu caged platforms! Simply breathtaking, CC!!

Melissa Blake said...

I want to live in that castle!

Fabulous giveaway! I would style that cool watch with a total menswear look- my skinny dark jeans, flats, a white men's hanes tank top, my boyfriend blazer, and loads of silver bangles with the watch! :)

Michelle said...

Man oh man, Stella McCartney is my hero. It's almost impossible to find vegan products that actually look nice.

Orient makes such beautiful watches. It'd be awesome to win one, especially one like the one in the giveaway, it'd go with everything.

Thanks for having such an awesome blog!

An avid rss reader,

-Michelle

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

pretty*pink*rat said...

You're really feeling the stripes and leather! I love that grey bustier, I love that its not too sexy, perfect to layer and transition from the work place to happy hour!

And that watch is gorgeous. I agree that it would go with anything!

megatonk said...

Nice post. I think I'm becoming addicted to your blog...! :)

Juliet said...

I love what you love!

But the watch, I love it cause it's a classic, I'd style it with everything and would deserve it because I'm broke after getting presents for my bf (his birthday and our anniversary).

South Loop Social Light said...

I love the black, white and leather in this post!!! I just purchased my first pair of hidden platform, otk leather boots. I absolutely love them though they aren't great for my daily commute to work in the city... but I don't mind suffering a bit for fashion.

issa said...

i would love to find a faux fur swing coat!

Leah said...

I'm lusting for that thigh high boots and the sequined dress. Love 'em.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Apparently we love the same things. LOL! Fabulous post. And what a fabulous giveaway. I have been looking for a decent watch for months now. All the good ones I want I simply cannot afford. I would pair this watch with a long-sleeved button down white men's shirt and blue jeans, because it is casual and classy all at the same time. :)

Little Red said...

I love that sequin dress! So perfect for a night out!
That castle is just magnificent. I know I would get lost wandering around in there! Haha!

WendyB said...

I love the look of those McCartney boots but would be skeptical about wearing such tight pleather. Seems like it would be sweaty.

Sher said...

Ohhh another watch giveaway! I've yet to get one. What I love about that watch is the blue face, it's my favorite color ;)

meraldia said...

I like most the Alexander Wang dress! So chic!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Nina said...

It's been years since I last wore a watch, I miss wearing one. Plus I love, love, love the color of the watch's face! I am so into blue right now, that watch is perfect!

Repeat Possessions said...

I love this blog. Sleek style - class act. BTW - Lindsey is rockin' those PRVCY Jeans.

Make Do Style said...

Gosh what a feast of gorgeous images and the watch is lovely the blue face is unexpected but makes it more exciting.

I'd wear it with skinny gap chinos, a white shirt with rolled up sleeves and my manolo's!

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Fabulous fashion as always CC. Loving the watch; favorite style. I could use one since I drank too much tequila on Sat. night & dived into my hosts swimming pool with mine on. Not smart in soooo many ways!

Intrinsically Florrie said...

The Italien Vogue editorial (June 09) is really beautiful. I love the different textures at work in that photo.
And the Chambord Castle in France.. it's stunning!

Florrie x

Maria Confer said...

That castle is so gorgeous it looks imaginary!

Alecca Rox said...

i am shamelessly inviting myself to an imaginary holiday at your imaginary home away from home:) I'll arrive in the Lauren Urstadt gloves!

Marie-Louise said...

mom & son said...

I cuissards della McCartney... meravigliosi....

missDTM said...

looooooooooooove everything in this post!! these pics are amazingly inspiring!

clarewbrown said...

I love your "loves" as well! Such an awesome group of eye catching and fabulous photos! You clearly have marvelous taste, CC!

Hunters Glory said...

... love dem studded leather gloves ...


;)

Kristin said...

Oh, Stella. You continue to make me drool. Those boots are so incredibly sexy!

Couture Cookie said...

Vegan thigh highs... I like the sound of that! Also, the watch is beautiful. I would wear it with a black turtleneck, a black boucle skirt and buckled patent flats.

xo

Tracy-Girl said...

Oh my goodness, beautiful! I love the stripes!

Martina said...

The watch is perfection! It screams classy without being staid, matronly, or frumpy. How would I style it? Classic, baby: navy blue trousers, camel blazer, light blue blouse. But let's make it fun, shall we? The watch deserves it: the blouse will be ruffled, the trousers wide legged, and I plan on wearing fierce heels.

Bunny B said...

Gorgeous watch! I would love to win this for my mom! Her birthday's coming up and I'm not really making much to get her something really nice. This would be really awesome! Thanks!

Dana (MODAna) said...

those stella mccartney boots are BEYOND

joannapple said...

I love France, Miu Miu cage platforms, furs and strippes!! Adorable post!

Amelia said...

So much prettiness! I love how decadent this all is.

Ashley said...

Beautiful watch! I'd style my look so that the watch was the focal point - I'd wear a white drape-y tee, skinny black jeans, black boots, and an armful of bracelets along with the watch! The watch would be my statement piece :)

Sam said...

So many many wonderful things here!!! Especially that castle!! Wonderful as always CC! I think I'd wear that watch with those stunning cage shoes!!

Butterfly said...

Yummy images. Thanks for brightening up my day - I'm day dreaming of a château en France and wearing all these fabulous garments to swan around in!! XOXO

miss cavendish said...

I especially love the color of the pool on the ELLE magazine cover.

ellevictoire said...

those leggings with the chains are made of awesome! they'd make anyone wearing them look so fierce.

fashionblogger said...

What I like about the Orient watch is that it looks solid and well-made. Also the design is very universal. xs
PS. The castle from the Italian Vogue shoot looks amazing.

Imogen said...

I love the picture of the castle, so beautiful. It makes me feel dreamy and imaginative just looking at it.

Dani @ Weddings Fresh said...

oooh, that Hervé Léger bustier is fab! great picks!

Style Redux 2 said...

You have wonderful taste.

Noble Beeyotch said...

I love orient watches. They are always so chic and classy...i would love to own one of these!

beckyxoxo said...

great post ! love the sequin dress . and yeah for the watch ! love them ! so sweet you're giving it . :D

Carrie said...

Victoria Beckham looks so amazing in zebra print. Another wonderful post, Carrie. It's very inspiring.

Quixsa said...

I LOOOOOVE the Orient watch and I believe I deserve it ( deserve may not be the right word for it...I'd REALLY REALLY LIKE IT thought :0) because I've been using a $12.00 Powder Puff Girls watch since I was 13 and it JUST broke...and now I am in need of a new time piece :0)
Love your post- amazing fashion style.

nao said...

I love that this watch has a menswear vibe. Tough yet chic enough to be on a ladies wrist.

Grad School Mommy said...

As usual, your blog is a visual feast... so thanks for that! As for the Orient watch... well, I've been coveting this one for a while. I love the stainless steel look & that it's a mechanical watch. Since I'll be wrapping up my degree soon, and I'd love to have this watch as a special treat. :)

mridula said...

Wow this is a stunning watch. I love the deep blue face and the rectangular insets. A rich look. I haven't owned a watch in years, relying instead on my cell phone to tell me the time. But would take the trouble to wear this one, especially on those days when I'm wearing the uniform, tie jeans with a t-shirt. A watch like this would inject style and excitement into a blah outfir. yes? I'm not sure about dserving to win...but I suppose I could say I deserve to win just about as much as anyone else who hasn't won any of your fabulous giveaways.

STYLEEZTA said...

I heart watches! this one is unique and quite classic looking. I'd wear it with a boyfriend blazer and skinny jeans.

the little eastern heretic said...

i deserve to win... because i haven't won anything for a long time! :)

love your blog! :)

Charlene Ashley Dy said...

Oh I would love to win this watch!!!

I want to pair it with a very classy outfit. I think I deserve it too since I don't have a watch right now. :(

Luanna said...

i love this watch! it's such a great everyday casual watch! i'm starting my life over from square one, after ending a 5 year relationship, switching careers, and losing everything i own. i just recently discovered this blog and truly appreciate it because it inspires me and really gets my creative juices flowing. i love fashion, so this blog makes me happy. :-) thanks carrie!

PowerSweepstaking said...

really a sharp watch, for the wife on our Hawaii trip next month that I won in a sweepstakes through Marriott last week, says she needs a whole new wardrobe, this would be a start

Vanessa said...

The watch would be great with denim or a casual dress. The color is great.

jennifer57 said...

Love it all...unsure about those chain linked pants though :)
