Another Page from the Beautiful Paris Catalog!


Hello, everyone, my name is Vanessa and if I weren't so sweet, I would be saying, "Don't hate me because I am beautiful."

I mean, seriously...too freaking adorable. Everything about this shot must have pleased the dickens out of the photographer, the stylist, the director, and of course, lovely Ms. Vanessa herself.

The clothing itself is also to die for...the color of the coat, the exquisite print on the skirt (I happen to own that print in the doll dress), the pretty plaid shoes, and the sweet grey sweater all belted up.

The makeup--simply exquisite. Black eyeliner and mascara placed just so...check; Red lipstick in the most amazing shade...check; The perfect color foundation and eyebrows plucked exactly right...check.

And the hair...mussed to say, "I don't really care how I look because even though I am a bit messy, it keeps the whole entire look from being too twee."

Yep, J. Crew...this is it. Can we go back to this? And soon, please?

Don't forget...I have more images from this catalog...simply click on the Paris Catalog tag to see them all...

This is one of my most favorite images from that catalog. Sometimes, I use those images as my inspiration when doing makeup (although I'm not usually terribly creative). Love love love the look!

Ladies: I totally agree...I feel transported everytime I look at this catalog. The main reason I am posting it here on my blog? I desire the ability to look at these pics even when I am away from the house. Plus it helps preserve the images. And with today being oh so nasty, the escape is perfect timing!!! ;) Have a nice day, everyone.

Oh, Anon? I posted another pic with the library print!!!
