Hello lovelies. Sorry for the delay but I'm super busy today. The week flew by, which I'm not complaining about. Also flying by, it's so windy in DC today. Power lines fell near my apartment so lets hope I have electricity when I get home. Any plans for the weekend?
Currently I'm working on an ad at work and my bosses want it to be purple and orange. With my artistic background I feel strongly against using these two colors together, they aren't complimentary. But then I saw Gucci using the combo in their Fall 2011 runway and thought to myself that maybe I'm just out of the loop.
If anyone is a fan of Charley Harper as much as me, or would like to learn more about him check out the recent article in House Trends magazine. Last year I was fortunate enough to buy my first original Charley Harper (seen above), I love the piece and hope to add more in the coming years.
After reorganizing over the weekend, G and I (mostly myself) realized that we have way too many books. Obviously my apartment isn't large enough for a library but a girl can at least dream for walls of endless shelves to hold every last book.
A colorful floral scarf. My current Burberry scarf screams winter; a pretty, pastel floral scarf would be perfect to mix with my winter coat at the moment to keep the sporadic days of 'spring' around longer.
Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend, and that you all had President's Day off. G and I did quite a bit of furniture shopping (and purchasing) this weekend. We finally ordered our sofa (pictured above) and I also bought a vintage cabinet to hide G's record player that has annoyingly been sitting in the floor of the back room since Christmas. Now we just have to wait until the end of April for the sofa!
Hello lovelies, I'm so glad it's Friday. G and I are going shopping for sofas this weekend, lets hope we finally pick one! I'm excited that it's a long weekend with extra time to relax. What are you doing this weekend? Hitting up any President's Day sales?
I'm obsessed with these shoes from the new BHLDN site. I'm trying to justify their purchase but I'm just now sure yellow satin bow pumps are the greatest choice for work. I think I need to think harder, so that they can be justified. ::wink::
G and I are finally tackling our back room. It has been the one room in the apartment we have sort of 'let slide' for over a year since it technically doesn't have a real purpose, besides housing the dog's cages at night. We are leaving the walls white because of all the concrete walls and exposed duct work. To liven up the one long wall we are hanging dozens of pictures and I think this one needs to be added pronto.
I love both my boys so of course when they insist on watching the Westminister Dog Show I'm happy to oblige. The best in show is crowned tonight. (They of course know they would win hands down, if only they weren't mixed breeds.)
Not sure about you lovely ladies, but I'm ready for the weekend (this is the first 5 day work week I've had in awhile).The weather is 'supposed' to be fabulous, hello 50s, so I hope to spend a majority of my time outdoors. Sunday G and I are heading to the Georgetown Flea Market in search of a vintage coffee table, or maybe more. Hopefully we can also pick up some brunch in the area. I hope you all enjoy your weekend and weather you are celebrating Vday alone, with girlies, or your man have a splendid time.
Today the Diane Von Furstenberg Home Collection launches. Check out all the items here. Most the pieces are a touch too bold and graphic for my home but the colors are fantastic and the shapes complimentary.
Can I just say how great Natalie looked at the Oscar luncheon this week. I know it is just a simple navy wrap dress but it looks fab and I love the punch of the red shoe. I like the similar feel of the green dress below, its similar and I feel it's perfect for spring and summer at the office and after hours (Maybe with a bright shoe to accompany).
