Strange Addictions: Cream Lace

One section of my closet literally looks like that.  Ivory lace.  Once upon a time (or *ahem* several times) whilst shopping at TJ Maxx, I looked down at my cart of things to try on in the dressing room.  And what did I see but that 9 outta the 10 garments were cream and lacy... or had cream lace embellishments.

And while I know there are weirder things to be addicted to (thanks to reality tv for cluing me on those...) I must admit that when I end up wearing something cream-colored and lacy (or sheer, or crocheted) more than three days in a row... I might need to switch up my wardrobe a bit. 

Am I in a style rut?  Yes.  Is it so terribly bad to be stuck wearing pretty, white, lacy things?

I think not.

And I promise I don't have some awful, underlying, desperation to wear a wedding dress.
(I don't even having a "My Future Wedding" board on Pinterest, for Pete's sake!) 

I just love love love me some white lace.  It feels so very Victorian.  So very delicate and pretty and lovely.  So very Downton Abbey.  So very vintage.  And I don't see an end to this obsession anytime in the near future.  So bring on the lace!  (I'll just try to throw some color and other materials into my wardrobe every one in a while, too, to balance it all out.  ;)

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 .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
