Every month, we get especially giddy about our WWW: Hearts story, and our reasoning is simple: whenever we come across something that leaves us smitten, we just can't keep it to ourselves! So, what's on our radar for November? For starters, we're dying to see Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn and have a hunch that it is going to be a box office hit. In addition to our cinematic excitement, we're also craving the entire 10 Crosby by Derek Lam collection and lusting after a pair of essential Topshop boots. But that's just the tip of the iceberg, dear readers. Read on to see the rest of our obsessions and let us know which ones are your favorites too!
Ellen von Unwerth: Fräulein by Ingrid Sischy ($70)
Equal parts provocative and fashion-forward, Ellen von Unwerth's photos are always captivating and unforgettable, to say the least. Fans of the photographer's keen eye will fall head-over-heels for Fräulein, a stylish tome that features over a thousand of von Unwerth's spellbinding, fashion-meets-fetish photos. Inside, you'll find sartorial splendor galore, including shots of Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Natalie Portman and more. All in all, we simply can't recommend this book highly enough!
Erickson Beamon + BaubleBar Collaboration
A statement piece of jewelry will instantly punch up any outfit, which is why it's the perfect choice for festive gatherings. Accordingly, we've got our eye on Erickson Beamon's new collaboration with BaubleBar, as it features seven covetable, vintage-inspired necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. The limited-edition line is a fraction of the cost of Erickson Beamon's signature jewelry, making it all the more enticing! Although we adore everything, our favorite piece is the Dirty Glam Necklace ($165). Simply wear this eye-catching necklace with an LBD and you'll have a foolproof ensemble for the upcoming holiday season! Better snag one before it's too late; all pieces are made-to-order and will start shipping mid-November.
My Week with Marilyn
It's hard not to be intrigued by Marilyn Monroe's glamorous and iconic life, which is why we're definitely anticipating the release of My Week with Marilyn, starring Michelle Williams as the blonde bombshell. Set in England in the summer of 1956, the film chronicles the week Monroe spent exploring London with Colin Clark, an assistant on the set of her film The Prince and the Showgirl, which offered the actress an escape from the pressures of Hollywood. The film will be released on November 23rd, and we can hardly wait to catch a glimpse of the legend's life and, of course, her wardrobe.
J Brand for City Year 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans ($144) in Vine, Plumberry, and Apache
As if we didn't love J Brand enough, the denim experts have given us another reason to buy their fashionable duds: one hundred percent of the proceeds for their 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans will be donated to City Year, a non-profit organization that aims to reduce the high school drop-out rate. Available in three chic colors, the jeans are sure to make a great addition to your fall wardrobe while helping a worthy cause-so in other words, what's not to love? Whether you dress them up with heels for a night out or team them with high-fashion sneakers for the weekend, this is one purchase you definitely won't regret!
Topshop Chicago Side Zip High Leg Boots ($190) in Black
One of our favorite things about fall is bringing out those beloved boots that have been stashed away all summer. This season, we'll be adding Topshop's Chicago Side Zip High Leg Boots to our collections, which were made in honor of the retailer's new store in the Windy City. With their simplistic design and streamlined shape, they're an extremely versatile option-trust us, you'll get a lot of wear out of these boots! We suggest pairing them with gray skinny jeans and a stylish parka once the chilly weather hits.
10 Crosby Debuts First Collection, Resort 2012
Without fail, Derek Lam's collections always leave us swooning. But along with the irresistible clothes come hefty price tags, so we were thrilled when we heard about the designer's new lower-priced diffusion line, 10 Crosby. And as if that wasn't enough to make our hearts go aflutter, we were completely sold when we spotted Hanne Gaby Odiele in the lookbook images, which had us dying to get our hands on the collection pronto. Our favorite look, you might ask? The Indigo Sleeveless Wrap Blouse ($295) and Indigo Tweed Denim Skirt ($325), which makes for one stellar look in our minds. We'll be waiting with bated breath until November 15, when the collection will be available online.-Erin Fitzpatrick
