“Happiness is the secret to all beauty; there is no beauty that is attractive without happiness.” -Christian Dior
It’s Paris Fashion Week, so of course this week’s most wanted are several pieces from one of the couture shows – Christian Dior. The show itself included pieces representative of many different eras and was divided into 8 different groups. The pieces I loved so much were all the coats and jackets, and one specific black and white dress. Check them out below! While the fur coat is absolutely gorgeous, I wouldn’t wear it unless it was imitation fur, but I wanted to include it in this post because I love the way all the separate pieces are paired together. Jackets are paired with pants and tops that make the complete outfit look very cut and clean, but still stylish.

Have a clear vision about who you are and make sure your personality and your ideas are reflected in the company. Lastly, a high confidence level and a strong voice are two musts. -Fashion designer Paula Hian

I love anything smelly (scented might be a better word?), but it takes me forever to find just the right scent for me! It doesn’t matter what it is, body wash, a candle, lotion, perfume (this one takes me the longest to find), I always spend hours in the store trying to decide what to buy.
I recently discovered Scentbird – a site that let’s you try a perfume before you buy. So how does it work? Choose any perfume from the website you’d like to test out, and receive a 2 ml. sample. Wear it and see if it’s the right scent for you. If you love the perfume, keep the bottle. If it’s not “your scent” return it with free shipping. Love it!
You can shop by Scent Type, Personality, Occasion, and even type in your favorite perfumes to find your next new scent.

I saw this dress and H&M the other day, and knew right away that it would be this week’s most wanted piece. I really like the pattern and how it’s a long maxi dress – makes it a little more versatile, don’t you think?
Since this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, this week’s Friday’s Most Wanted is a very unique red, white, and blue dress (not in the traditional stars and striped way!). Check it out – it’s a Mary Katrantzou design, called Harbour Bridges Printed Dress in Multi. Isn’t it so unique? The entire dress is photo printed with bridges and trees. Talk about some pattern-and-print-play! The price is a little much, but hey a girl can dream. Hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day Weekend. I will be spending mine away in the mountains, and then at a spa. Can’t wait for some relaxing time!

Easy, breezy (beautiful Cover Girl?) dress. I really love this Anthropologie Estrella Maxi Dress. I’m an advocate of maxi dresses and skirts, AND I just read the other day that wearing them boosts women’s confidence, so take that all you maxi dress haters! Anyway, not only do I love that this Anthro dress is a little longer than the usual summer frock, I really like the cut and the bright design on black – this adds for a nice contrast, and allows for some great easy pairing. By that I mean, you can dress this look up or down, wear it with colored accents, or pair it with neutrals. Many options all in one dress.
