Literary Chic | Fashion by the Books

As autumn's chill hits the air, it's time to hit the books. (Not just your textbooks, though!) When temperatures drop, what's more appealing than curling up in a blanket with a good read and good cup of coffee?  Well, maybe taking that book from your couch to the streets... in wardrobe form!  Out of Print is a unique online shop specializing in clothing and accessories inspired by great authors and great stories.  Being the bookworm that I am, I'm quite smitten with their mission.  So I picked out a few (okay, eleven!) of their literary tees and daydreamed about how I'd style them.

I never posted a comment, but I've been following your blog for quite a while. :)
You have such a great fashion sense!! The colors you mix are perfect, and you make casual looks really feminine.

And I must say the bookworm that I am is in love with those particular outfits. :D


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.
