The Fashion Magpie Collosol French Secret

Le Latest.

Guys, I’ve been in a splurge-y mood lately.  (Gulp.)  There are so many items on my lust list right now — below, Le Latest.

Pick No. 1: The Statement Top

How fabulous is this statement top?!  Love the idea of pairing this with my favorite skinnies, a bold red lip, and some great heels.  Easy, fashion-forward genius.  The best part?  The shirt is under $50!  Very Johanna Ortiz.  If you are after more great deals, check out my sale sweep section.

Pick No. 2: The New Shades

OBSESSED with these Le Specs shades ($69).  Just ordered them in the black and may also need them in the tortoise!

Pick No. 3: The New Bedding

I’ve mentioned chic bedding line House Hill Home before on the blog, but I only recently took a closer look at their wares when I realized the monograms on the pillow shams have become a bit unraveled and messy looking owing to heavy use of late (I’m always balling up pillows and leaning against them while breastfeeding!).  I really wanted to order a pair of their Savile pillows (shown below with the black trim, $130 for set of two — so tidy!  so elegant!  so European!), but black would really clash with our predominantly gray-with-pops-of-lavender situation in our bedroom, and white was sold out.  I’m now contemplating a set of their Waverley pillows with the cornflower blue trim or maybe just the plain white trim.  I’m also on the fence about what to embroider on the pillows — they have so many creative ideas!  Mr. and Mrs.?  Mr. Shoop and Mrs. Shoop?  Jen and Landon?  Decisions, decisions…

Pick No. 4: Open-Weave Sweater

This open-weave neutral sweater is the sort of staple classic that is rather boring to buy, but will see a ton of use — and it’s on sale for $39!  I’m imagining throwing it on with my white distressed denim skinnies on a cooler evening.

Pick No. 5: The French Skin Cleanser

Have you guys heard all the buzz about the milky French skin cleanser, Collosol?  Apparently it’s a French pharmacy classic and cult favorite — Karl Lagerfeld reportedly uses a full bottle of it every time he takes a bath?! — and has only recently become available for purchase in the U.S. ($28).  I’m very intrigued…and P.S., more new beauty finds, and, speaking of Les Francais, some reflections on my beloved Paris.

Pick No. 5: The New Pert Plus.

I love the styling of this new shampoo-and-conditioner-in-1: it reminds me of my middle school years in more ways than one.  Also supposedly amazing.

Pick No. 6: The Hermes Leather Bracelet.

My mom gave me a classic Hermes wrap bracelet for my birthday a few years ago — it’s a classic that layers well with so many other pieces.  I’m considering adding another to my stack, and Real Real carries a bunch of gently used ones at a decent price: I love this white one ($245) or this blue one ($395).

Pick No. 7: The Santa Maria Novella Pomegranate.

I read in a recent edition of Town + Country that one well-appointed interior designer stocks her guest bedrooms with these Santa Maria Novella terracotta pomegranates ($69 each), describing them as “transformative.”  It’s apparently soaked in the old Italian label’s signature scent and it slowly releases the fragrance into the air over time, gently perfuming the room.  I need to give this a try as an alternative to keeping candles lit all over the place!  Also: what a chic and luxurious hostess gift.

Pick No. 8: The Embroidered Button-Down.

Speaking of embroidered goodies (ahem, those damn chic pillowcases above!), I have my eye on of these adorable “bonjour” embroidered button-downs from Maison Labiche (on sale for $79 in limited sizes here; more sizes available here).


Also — Smallable carries a fairly extensive collection of embroidered Maison Labiche goodies for the wee ones.  How perfect is this striped tee embroidered with “Enfant Terrible” (on sale for $40)?!?!?!  Also love this “Bubble Gum” sweatshirt, and this striped “Bonjour” onesie.



Pick No. 9: The Frothy LWD.

I bought this Ulla Johnson dress (on sale for $354) for minimagpie’s upcoming Baptism.  I just felt white was appropriate for the day.  I’ll accent with pearls and pink.  But, for those who missed out on the Ulla style, I also found this lookalike H+M dress for $79!

Pick No. 10: The Gingham Midi.

Still obsessing over the midi length RN.  More inspo, especially of the gingham variety:

I’ll be recreating with this $95 gingham skirt.  Please and thank you.







  1. OMG … love the Maison Labiche picks! Smallable is my favorite destination for children’s gear in Paris … such a cute space. They also have a small selection of clothes for women, too — I got a great cotton gauze midi skirt there (it’s a size 16 ans, but works!) and a pair of fun, glittery socks.

    I am equally enamored of the midi skirt this season and have a black & white gingham version that’s my favorite! We’re on the same wavelength, clearly.

    Your dress for mini’s baptism is so gorgeous!

    1. AHHH I am obsessed with Smallable — their baby bedding in particular is so chic! AND, re: minimagpie’s Baptism dress, I am so sad because the Ulla Johnson dress arrived and I was swimming in it, so I had to return it 🙁 I decided to go for the H+M bow-shouldered dress I’ve been blabbing on about: Now I’m waiting for its arrival to see if IT will fit. If not…boooooo!

    2. Oh no! Too bad about the Ulla Johnson … but I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the other dress works! Love the bow shoulders.

    3. MK, it arrived just yesterday and it is LOVELY! I’m wearing it! xoxo
