Gossip Girl Season 4 Premier In Paris!!!

With the Season 4 premier of Gossip Girl only two weeks away, I cant help but count down the days until we can all be inspired by the fabulous outfits Serena and Blair are sure to wear. Oo, la, la, spotted, Serena in a fab gold lame jacket and royal blue pants! Or my favorite look, the coral wide legs, oatmeal shear tank, sage green stone necklace and fedora! While the story line has gotten crazy, but sadly enough still realistic, the fashion is the real reason I watch the show.   I like to think of myself as a nice mix between Blair and Serena!  Then theirs the new girl (bottom left) I can't remember her name but he style is fab!  

While you wait for the season premier, check out this video of the song used in the promo.  Its the french version of "These Boots Are Made For Walking" preformed by Eileen.  
Everything sounds better in french...

September 13th - Gossip Girl Season Premier in Paris!  Don't miss it!

Currently Coveting: NECKLUSH

So I thought I would start off the week with an item I am currently coveting, Necklush.  I mean seriously, how fabulous are these scarfs?!  But wait, there way more cooler than any old scarf, its a Necklush, working double duty as both a scarf and a stylish necklace.  My favorite are the Necklush Ultra version (featured above, bottom right) which feature more strands and are thicker around the neck, but I cant get enough of the colors & patterns used in the others featured above.  With Fall just around the corner I MUST have one.  And even better,  their handmade in Brooklyn! What more could a girl ask for? 

Now the problem lays, in which to choose... Im thinking I will go with the leopard one, top middle one, but then again I really want them all.  Then when I thought picking from the above was a problem, I came across their newest style, Necklush Chains!  A-MAZ-ING!  Love!  Below are my two favorites, but I think I have decided on the Chocolate w/Silver Print.  

What's your favorite?

Check out the rest of the selection by stoping by their shop on Etsy.

Emmy's Fashion Trends 2010

Royal Hues & Ruffles

Sparkling Champagne

Although I was a bit underwhelmed in terms of the overall fashion statement at the 2010 Emmy's, we must admit when was the last time we were actually overwhelmed at an awards show?  None the less I still like to keep hope alive.  Above are my favorite picks form the ladies that I saw.  Once I pulled them all together I found that of the six I liked they all fell in to one of two trends that seemed to be occurring on the red carpet, so I grouped them as such. I have to say my #1 would have to be January Jones, for the simple fact that she took a risk.  I love the color, the volume and the texture of the dress she choose, her new shoulder length bob was a winner too! Well done ladies! 

Who were your stand outs from the evening?

p.s.  Congrats to MadMen for winning a Emmy for Best Drama... much deserved!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

{images via weheartit}

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I'm currently mid flight headed to San Diego for work... gotta love gogo in flight wifi. My favorite part about flying is looking out the window imaging I am floating in air, bouncing from cloud to cloud.  I love beautiful, cotton candy-esq clouds for one reason and one reason only the daydreaming possibilities are endless.  Since floating in the clouds is highly unlikely, the next best thing would be a hot air balloon right.  Oh, to float above the clouds, high up in the sky in a beautifully colored balloon propelled by hot air.  It just sounds magically! 

I must say that if a boy really wanted to impress me, a date in a hot air balloon would be a great place to start! I hope you all have a wonderful day! If you get a moment, look up to the clouds and wave hello *smile*

Dream House

"This house is warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and looks spectacular with Christmas lights. This is a great house. I never want to move. But the thing I like best about this house are the voices I hear when I walk though the door."   -George Banks

Above are my top picks for the season!  Starting at $129 and going up to $1,695, there's options to aspire to and options to make your own.  Which one is your favorite???

Oh Joy!... Creative Inc.

Oh, joy is right! The new venture by Joy Cho of Oh Joy! and Meg Ilasco of designers library, Creative Inc. is "The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business".  The book sounds amazing and I can't wait to read it, although I must admit the above video is what first caught my attention. If that weren't enough, the two lovely ladies behind Creative Inc.  will be doing a book tour, hitting San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.  How exciting!  I think I will wait until then to purchase my book, so I can do so in person and hopefully get a signed copy!

My Motto For the Week!

Created by: moleitau 

Im starting my Monday off right... each day I will wake up and think of this!  Its all about positive thinking and taking action. Now I just need to get to bed so I officially start the week off in the morning. 

So Much To Do, So Little Time

Hello everyone, long time no see!  I know its my fault,  I seemed to become MIA basically since the beginning of the year. Things in Fallonland have been pretty crazy since then and well I hate to attempt it but my pretty little Fairytale suffered because of it. Sorry if you felt a bit abandoned, please know that I still thought about all of you often!  I just simply didn't have the energy to come home after a 12+ hr day at work and share my wishes & dreams.  Of course that most certainly doesn't not mean that I stopped wishing and dreaming all together, that would just be pure craziness!  My wishes & dreams were still alive and kicking I just never seemed to find the moment to be able to share them. That is until now!  Things in Fallonland are still JUST as crazy, in fact maybe even more so since traveling season is picking up again. But I have vowed to try my hardest to balance work, play and my blog, because I really do love it and it really does bring me joy!  So this week, Im back! and better than ever.  I have a post lined up for you each day so stay tuned as I promise nothing short of pure fabulousness for the week ahead.  Miss Fallon is jumping back on the horse and making it all happen. So even though I have a lot of my plate at the moment... Im stacking them high and taking it one day at a time!  Honestly I thrive in this sort of madness... and I wouldn't have it any other way!

By the way, Im so excited to be so close to having 100 followers!  I know it doesn't sound like much, considering most blogs admire/aspire to be have 1,000 - 4,000 easily, but hey its a start.  Im just flattered that 81 people have chosen share in my Fairytale Wishes & Dreams and I just want to make them proud. If your not a follower yet but you love my blog, go ahead and click the follow button on the top left under the banner.  I promise you wont be disappointed!   

p.s. The above fabulous sketch is done by one of my personal favs.. Brooke Hagel of Fabulous Doodles.  She's is an amazing artist. Check out her blog here and etsy shop here.

Happy week ahead everyone!!!

In honor of tonights episode: MAD MEN

In honor of tonights episode of MADMENI bring you Christina Hendricks aka. Joan Holloway, who in my opinion is absolutely stunning! Her fire red hair, pale skin, bodacious curves and deep blue eyes are top notch.  She is everything and 1960's bombshell should be.  The roll of Joan Holloway was made for her! I can't wait to see what happens to Don Drapper and the gang this week!  Heading to make my self a cocktail now so I'm fully prepared.  

On that note have you downloaded the free MADMEN Cocktail Culture iphone app?  If not click here  and you'll be mixing up a Martini, Manhattan or Whisky Sour in now time.

Wishing & Dreaming On The Boulevard of Broken Dreams

J.Crew is giving me everything this season, I just can't seem to get enough.  The Marinete Feather Jacket above, it to die for!  Now if only I could figure out how I could justify spending $1,200 on a jacket. For those of you that may "have it like that" or if you just want to go on wishing & dreaming like me the jacket is available here.

"Edie Beal Goes To Summer Camp" -J.Crew Fall 2010

I am totally feeling J.Crew's Fall 2010 collection.  The mix of textures, the subdued color palette and all that textures.  I mean seriously, I see sequins, silk, fur, tweed, leather, fleece, velvet and hats galore.  What more could a girl ask for!  

The fall collection for J.Crew was a sorta "Edie Beal Goes To Summer Camp" inspiration, so says Jenna, J.Crews creative director.  Its military inspired but with more of a girl scout feel! I cant find one thing I don't like about it.  In fact, Im having trouble narrowing down my selections.  All I know is I must have the sequin skirt, MUST HAVE for sure.  

Click here to see the rest of the looks from fall as well as a behind the scenes video with Jenna herself. 

Lauren Moffatt: Fall 2010

I had never heard of Lauren Moffatt before until reading the recent issue of Lonny Magazine.  Let me just say it was love at first site.  The way her Fall line is styled is what really drew me in. I love the mix of fabrics, patterns and colors.  Being born and raised in Northern California I have always been a fan of layering! The school girl chic vibe was also a nice touch.  This season, I vow to try the whole sock and heel combo and I plan to actually pull it off.  Stay tuned...

Be sure to check out Lauren Moffatt's website to see the entire Fall collection, as well as the Gold pained "hand & foot" chair on the homepage, which is to die for!

Triumph Inspiration Awards: My Favs!

I came across the Triumph Inspiration Awards via Frou Frou Fashionista.  Find out more about the contest by clicking the link above.
 You have until August 31st to enter to win 2 tickets to the VIP Triumph Inspiration Award Ceremony.  The contest is open worldwide (except for those in the USA)  Bummer!  Either way I can still cast my vote here... above are my four favorites! 

How To Dress For Success... Edith Head

I came across these amazing illustrations on while browsing LiveJournal here and immediately rushed to and purchased the book How To Dress For Success by Edith Head.  I simply had to have it for my collection.  Edith Head is one of the greatest costume designers of all time with some of the greatest films of all time under her belt, including my all time favorite's Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany's.  She was sought after by most of the leading ladies of the 40's & 50's including Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn.  I mean that's SOME track record if you ask me.  Edith Head was an amazing women who could make the ordinary, extraordinary! 

She sure had a lot of wisdom to share as well, my favorite being... "You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it".  Working in the fashion industry I can tell you know truer words have ever been spoken.
