Fawn MUSE: Elizabeth Taylor

Beauty, grace, and femme fatale are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of the legend that is Liz.  She epitomized Hollywood glamour and will forever be known as one of the most beautiful women to ever live.  Yesterday, we lost this iconic movie star and to honor her memory I wanted to share some of my favorite images of her. 
 Butterfield 8 is my favorite Elizabeth Taylor movie....slips and furs and backwards worn pearls. phenom.

"Every breath you take today should be with someone else in mind"
Rest in Peace Elizabeth

Ivy League

A crisp white button down shirt never goes out of style. I like this version because it spices up the classic shirt with the zig-zag collar.
I adore the pattern on the wooden heel of these shoes!
A linen blazer = my spring must have!

We shot this outfit at Princeton University on a pleasantly surprising warm day.  Yay for spring and not needing to wear tights!  I love walking through this antiquated campus and observing the Gothic architecture.  I come here every spring and enjoy the fresh air and people watching. You can even find many quiet little spots to steal a kiss if you bring a date. Purely innocent! Something about this campus is very romantic to me.

Fawn on Phrequency

Hey friends! My Sam Edelman's and I were featured here at Phrequency.com.  They are a Philly lifestyle publication that focuses on music, art and fashion. The photos were shot by their blogging affiliates from Streets Dept ......Check them out!

I'm wearing an Anthropologie tiered trench coat, Goldenbleu handbag, Hue tights and the platforms I wore in my last post :)

Onyx & Congac


I purchased this Gorjana necklace at my favorite online retailer, Shopbop

Anthropologie top and skirt, Hue tights, Sam Edelman platform wedges, Goldenbleu clutch, Gorjana peacock feather necklace

I immediately fell in love with these shoes when I first saw them on Free People's website.  The wedge design makes them easy to walk in, minus the occasional teeter that occurs when my foot leans too far to the side.  When you're as clumsy as I am, you get used to such occurences! The top I'm wearing from Anthropologie has a longer silhouette that looks great over jeans as well. Surpisingly, the stripes do not make you look larger than you are, but they actually streamline your middle.  I also love wearing this top with cropped blazers....it looks super modern and trendy.

Wild Horses Couldn't Drag Me Away....

I must admit that I am a sale QUEEN. I can scour through racks upon racks of random markdowns to find that one perfect bargain.  However, I could not resist the splurge of this gorgeous sweater. The ribbed weaving and scalloped edges had me obsessing about it from the moment I saw it in Anthro's catalogue.  It's as comfy cozy as it looks....sigghhh...soon I'll have to retire it for spring.






Ohhhhhh my free peeps skirt makes me so happy!  It's perfect for layering and even doubles as a top....I'm sure I will have a set coming soon that features it as such.


I wear these Coach boots almost everyday....its kind of an obsession. They are so comfortable and the detailing is special, but simple.

The concept behind this set was inspired by the song "Wild Horses" by The Rolling Stones. It's a bit melancholy, but overall expresses a love so consuming that nothing could keep you from it.  I'm a sucker for romance I know! I wish that I could have a soundtrack to my life and the perfect song for my mood could be magically cued from my own personal dj.  In this set, my mood is introspective, I am a wanderer letting the serenity of nature keep my secret thoughts about the love I pine for.
My favorite version of  "Wild Horses" is a cover by The Sundays....I  made this video with the song to share how I trully envisioned this set....it also includes some outtake photos.
