Rose



I rolled up my lovely vintage eyelet bloomers today because I was getting sort of tired of the silhouette they were making around my legs. I like it this way a little better. Makes them a little looser and more casual.

As you can see I only have one of my hands painted red. Ive been a little busier than usual with a secret project I'll be able to share in March, and so therefore have had no time to really paint my nails the way Id like. Plus its kind of fun to just have one hand painted, and the other not.

I really want a rose scented perfume. Can anyone suggest an eu de toillette thats reasonably priced on the market right now?

Wearing a vintage Christian Dior rose mens shirt, american apparel triblend navy tank, rolled vintage white Ghost bloomers, vintage black hat with added ribbons, Steve by Steve Madden leather bag, David Aaron cream boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs large silver cuff, and vintage sterling silver bracelets.

Your bow ring is so cute! :)

You have to be careful with rose scented perfumes, or you risk smelling like an old lady. (I forget what you're supposed to look for so you won't, so I'm not really much help.)

Emz said...

L'Occitane always has great smelling perfume I have their honey one. I usually don't feel like they smell old cuz its really light and fresh! Um... http://usa.loccitane.com/ and I love your outfit its very cute =)

Love the hat!

I wish I could help you with a perfume suggestion but Ive been wearing the same one for years.

Rikki Lane said...

gorgeous outfit!
I love how you only have one hand painted red :]

E said...

very natural look - great setting for it, of course!

Copycat Sasha said...

I love the outfit, and I'm incredibly jealous of what looks like warm weather

cassiopeia said...

Gorgeous!

And I do so love the washed out quality of the photos...

The outfit and setting calls up 'the Virgin Suicides' costumes to me... Ooooh. Now yenning to watch that again! :-D

The crumpled shirt is def a good look.

Ditto on L'occitane-- that was my suggestion before I read hers. Kiehl's makes a great rose scented lotion too if you want something really light.

You are so stinkin' cute.

Francesca said...

I'm liking that color on you! I'm also excited to see what this project might be.

I've got my nails painted red too. It might be you who got me a bit obsessed! Hehe.

Elizabeth said...

Jenny H. said...

Teabagstains said...

such a relaxed outfit.
and i use a rose oil which is good coz it lasts longer then regular perfume.but i don't know of any perfume..if that helps
<3

msbeehave said...

I highly recommend Stella by Stella McCartney. It's lightly rose scented and smells lovely! I always get compliments when I wear it. The little roll on perfume is $17 at Sephora.

M said...

I adore Jo Malone Red Roses and wear it most days.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Where's your bag from? Or am I just blind and not noticing it in the entry...

Plus, I'm digging the only one hand painted look. Not sure I could pull it off though :)

Abeo said...

lovely photographs! i'm going to reblog in my tumblr ;)

Abeo said...

jurlique has very authentic rose scene, there are also other essential oil that's 100% rose extract but they're blooody expensive ( cost as much as $500 for a small 25ml glass bottle). Other authentic ones i've smelled are from cabtree & evelyn and aseop.

you have to be selective when you choose, some are just not rosily scene enough or rather very diluted.

:) just ask me if you have another other questions regarding rose! i'm a rose freak. lol

honey and lemon said...

leyandrea13 said...

am loving a few things about your outfit!!!!!
1) the silver cuff is chic yet edgy...loves!
2) your unbuttoned shirt to reveal that darker triangle of color...i am a Serious AA fan...comfy as hell.
3) black accents--yr bag + accessories. great juxtaposition.

on rose perfume...are u sure you want that anyway? it might be really cloying, but that's just me not preferring floral scents :)
cheers!

low esteem. self motivation

Em said...

as far as rose scented perfumes go, you should check out velvet tuberose from bath and body works. the eau de toilette is super cheap.

Demi said...

you look gorgeous as usual! such pretty photos!

I don't know if its rose-y or not, but I definitely recommend 'Intimately Beckham' by Victoria Beckham - its really light and gorgeous!

The color of your shirt is lovely. You wear hats so well. I have a similar hat, but it's bright red so I have lots of problems trying to wear it :(

Bridgette said...

I adore your eyelet bloomers! So cute!
I can totally understand the statement nail polish. I used to paint just one or two fingers myself. 10 painted nails are so boring anyways!

heleen db said...

What beautiful dream-like photos!

Tina said...

what an absolutely gorgeous outfit! you have such amazing style! the photos are so dreamy too :)

NCM said...

I love the colour of the shirt and all the bracelets you have on. You really have your own style, and an amzing one too!

Raez said...

Unrealized Fish said...

Great photos

Emily said...

go for Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf. I'm not sure it it's Rose scented exactly, but it's positively wonderful! It's my favorite floral scent, ever. But, I love the hat and the bag! I can't wait to hear about what you are secretly planning =]

Katia said...

I love your outfit and cute blog =]
as for the perfume you should try eternity rose, it's pretty old so it'll probobly be well prised? goodluck!

Lily said...

Beautiful photos. You look just like Blossom (from this terrible 90s sitcom which you're definitely way too young to know about!).

Love your blog! I am a bit obsessed with roses recently, so this post was just right. For a cheap rose fragrance, I use Cassis Rose from The Body Shop. Last time I bought it it might have been $14? But it's relatively strong, so it lasts longer.

anthropologie has really nice smelling perfume, its not name brand though but its really nice and less than 40$

Ah, A said...

ah! your rings... where do you usually go to for some nice ones? what's your favorite store?


nice bag (;

Fashlynable said...

I love your outfit! Also your bag is definitely to die for.
As for rose smelling things I think Crabtree and Evelyn may have something, they have a lot of REALLY nice smelling rose things but I don't know about perfume.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

I chose L'Occitane Four Queens and a unknown name rose oil

Anonymous said...

Rebecca said...

Hope its not to late...but try drole de rose by l'artisan parfumeur. its not cheap but its the best, and it lasts forever...you can get it at the perfume house on hawthorne.
