Pick Your Side: Margiela vs. Hello Kitty.

Which one will you be attending tonight? Lucky for me, I'll be at the Forever 21 at Americana which is hosting the Hello Kitty launch party and which also neighbors to H&M. File as sneaky, sneaky.

ApartmentPhile: Black Beauty.

I'm not sure what the deal is with my current obsession with all things dark romance (hmm...very 'Fifty Shades' of me) but in my quest to pre-design the perfect studio space for my next apartment I have found it rather difficult to envision exactly what I want the living/lounging space to look like. I've gone back and forth with three other options (you can find the first here, the second here and the third here) and although this one does seem very close to the first, it brings in a little more direction to the actual pieces that I might purchase: a ghost chair for the hand-crafted desk (side note: I love my boss and her furniture-building maverick boyfriend), a black-dyed Indian rug, a charcoal tufted settee, black and white floral curtains with lots and lots of leopard accents, and maybe a leather club chair (just like that lived-in Proenza Schouler bag). Ok, and maybe one pop of color with that light pink/coral/plum pillow. 

But all this does bring up the question: can I live with just one little pop of color in a pillow? Guess I'll have to sleep on this Fifty Shades... File as tied up.

Fashion Month Roundup: Taylor Tomasi-Hill.

Why wear it once when it's just so goddamn fabulous?

You can never go wrong with a knee-covering hemline and a tiny- little waist to boot.

C'mon, how can you NOT smile looking at this dress?! Also see: TTH in Comme des Garcon shorts here.

 I'll vote for a risk-taking outfit any day over a t-shirt and jeans. #CallMeCrazy

ApartmentPhile: My New Place.

So my official move-in date may not be happening for another two weeks, but that doesn't mean that I can't begin the decoration marathon for my brand spanking-new art-deco studio. And that cute little drawing above? That's my place!! Stay tuned over the next few weeks, because I'll be sharing all sorts of home posts here from the beginning stages of inspiration (coming very shortly), a couple DIY Ikea hacks, definitely some flea market hoarding and of course, the finished project! If you could ever really call any of my spaces "finished." File as more to come!

P.S. Clearly this is NOT drawn to scale, but you get the picture!
