Fly in July Lust List

My Darling Summer,
Why must you always speed by so quickly? I was just getting into the groove of bare skin and bright sun when BAM! Hello, July! So please slow motion for me so that I can enjoy the sweet kiss of your lazy lull for just a few moments more. And to show just how appreciative I am of your new more leisurely pace, I am compiling a Lust List so sartorially sinful that the other seasons will be envious all year long.

1. Mesi Jilly rings
As a little girl, I was team Belle all the way, never Ariel. I mean, I respected the mermaid’s dedication to the super-studly Prince Eric, but I just felt a connection with Belle that continues on today—the raven locks, the love of reading, and most of all being a magnet for the bad boy. But after discovering the ridiculously gorgeous rings by
Mesi Jilly at Amira in Miami’s Gansevoort Hotel, I was singing “Under the Sea” at the top of my lungs. These jewels are real-life buried treasure, combining the natural beauty of shell and coral with the glitzy addition of semi-precious stones and gold. And after seeing my style icon, the Ravishing Rachel Roy rocking Mesi Jilly, there was no turning back. Sebastian, can ya hear me?

2. Smoky Eye&Nude Lip
Nothing says naughty and nice quite like the combination of a devilishly dark smoky eye and a basically bare nude pout. Though you may be scared to tackle such conflicting sides of the cosmetics continuum, have no fear, tarte is here!
indelible wink is a two-for-one product with liquid liner on one end and the matching shadow, which sets the liner so it won’t budge or smudge all day long, on the other. I suggest black for all-out smoky seduction or the more subtle charcoal for a friendlier fire. As for your nude smacker, you must get the double-ended lipgloss in fred & ginger (how cute!). Fred is a rich caramel that gives your pout a natural gloss, while the golden Ginger brings the glitz and glamour.

3. July Jaunting
Whether you’re hitting the beaches of the South of France or the cultural cities of the Southeastern coast, get somewhere before summer comes to a screeching halt. With the endless number of “getyourcheapestflightwithus” websites, there is no excuse for being on self-imposed house arrest. I am beyond ecstatic to be jetsetting to Martha’s Vineyard at the end of August. I can’t wait to break out my seersucker and pastels for one last preppy party. Salty Dog CafĂ©, I’m coming for you! So get like me and make your vacation vows before school is no longer out for summer.

4. Peplum Skirts
This flouncy style harkens back to the days when I would put on my twirly skirt and bop to “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” till my 5-year-old body gave out. Well, fast-forward sixteen years and I still have a thing for the flirtiness of the twirl. But peplum is a more mature style that incorporates that adorable ruffle with the sleek sophistication of a slim skirt. Celeb stylistas like HP’s Emma Watson, the uber-chic Nicole Richie and her fierceness Fergie have been rocking this trend all summer long. FemmeFab designers Betsey Johnson and Tracey Reese have some totally ToDieFor looks. For the recessionally reasonable, Brit hotspot
Topshop has a wide range of fabulous dress and skirt styles. Talk about a plethora of peplum!

5. Torn by Ronny Kobo
If you don’t know about the sexy stylings of Israeli-born, Hong-Kong raised Ronny Kobo, get to Shopbopping, NatlJeanCo’in or something! I discovered Kobo’s line back in March and loved it so much, I not only
blogged, but also bought. There was something about the simple silhouettes, form-fitting fabrics and decadent designs that I just found irresistible. Well, the latest looks from Torn are just as tantalizing as Spring’s. I am obsessing over the One-shoulder Minidress in light heather grey because it is so subtly sexy. I’m thinking embellished flats for day and my haute pink pumps for night. I also L-O-V-E the Maryanne tank in leopard-print. The single-shoulder ruffle is such a funky take on the current trend. This top would work just as chicly paired with your slimmest jeans or under a structured blazer. Whichever style you gravitate towards, get Torn-up, Kobo-style!

I love the Fred and Ginger. I already own the Rhett and Scarlet, but have been hunting for a nice nude color. You will love The Vineyard!

I love love love indelible wink! It's the perfect 2 in 1 purse product to carry out around the town for a quick touch up!

Love the list!
The way I see it, a Mesi Jilly ring would be the perfect way to fuel my denial that this season is flying by at warp speed. I'm especially fond of the cowrie shell with turquoise...a perfectly elegant splash of color for a summer evening.
