Green Pleats + Chambray + Snakeskin | What I Wore Wednesdays (8.28.13)

I've had some recent requests from some of you lovely readers to bring back more fashion content, specifically Polyvore sets and outfits that I actually wear. So to start, I'm kicking off this new Wednesday feature. I'll share what I wore and I'd love for you to create a Polyvore set and leave a link to it in the comments. Whether you're dressing for campus, your internship, a job, or brunch with the girls... now's your time to share. 

Today I wore a green, pleated hi-lo skirt from Target. I tucked a chambray shirt into it and rolled up the sleeves. I added a metallic gold belt, my snakeskin flats, and my favorite pair of big black-fading-to-clear glasses. Oh, and a little reddish coral lipstick. 

What's you wear?



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.
