Arabian Nights | Dorm Ditto #9

(above and below dorm photos belong to Pleaides)

While browsing Flickr, I came across Pleaides' photos and found a dorm room that was definitely different. Pleaides loves the colors of the sunset and used rich crimson, orange, purple, wine, and gold tones in decorating the space.

(*)
The bed looks especially luxurious with its warm layers of color and plush pillows.

(**)
Pleaides used what looks to be a fancy, shimmery shower curtain or window panel to close off the closet from the rest of the room. That blue lantern hanging to the left of the closet is the perfect touch!

(***)
Pleaides calls the room "Indian-Moroccan-Bohemian" and it definitely gives off that vibe. She scavenged thrift stores, Ebay, and clearance tables at home decor shops to accessorize the room without breaking the bank. I like that pretty fabric draped over the desk.

She created quite the romantic, Arabian-inspired space, huh? To create this look, it's a one-stop-shopping trip. Hit up World Market and all you'll need to pull off this look is some belly-dancing lessons.

All of this can be found at World Market!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
