Mon petites, the words Moda Operandi brings such delight to my soul that it's on the brinks of insanity! The uber haute site that allows you to shop straight off the runway (literally - the trunk shows go live in a blink of an eye) for F/W 13 the streets will be alive with the sight of hauteness thanks to this ingenious site. And fear not mon petites, if ordering and waiting for frocks is simply not your thing you can order from the M'O Boutique - it's just as fab. Here's just a few of my fave pieces that were up for grabs...

Some girls dream about meeting Mr.Right but if you are like me one dreams of having the most amazing wardrobe and Opening Ceremony produced just that. The F/W 13 collection speaks to the city girl who has Uptown taste with a downtown vibe and it's just works! Now if I can just get my hands on each and every piece I will be a happy girl!
