My Entry | Outfit to Room Challenge

Just made my entry for the Moxii + Threadcase Outfit to Room Challenge.

I started out with Threadcase's Cowboys and Indians dress because I love its toasted gold color.  Then I added the Chic Southern Belle Hat since it's an adorable bad-hair-day coverup for fall. ;) 
I threw in a pair of suede pumps in my favorite color (turquoise!) and a red belt.  I'm a sucker for the mustard + crimson + turquoise color combination.  I finished off the look with pearl earrings, a cute scarf with words printed all over it, and the Colonel Mustard Clutch for its bold mustard color.
As for my room... I went with Moxii's Luxe Linen duvet because its creamy color reminded me of the scarf in my outfit--and also because the blue wall Moxii photographed the bed in front of went perfectly with my pumps.  I tossed some Coffee Bean Bag Pillows onto the bed since I'm in lust with burlap right now--and I thought the print compliment the scarf, too.  After adding the burlap pillows, I decided on Tree House Window Panels because they have that same rustic hue.  I also fell in love with the red Azalea Stencil Velvet pillow and added it onto the metal chair. I accessorized the room with a brightly colored floral chair that pulls all my colors together, the lovely Red Roses Wool Hooked Rug, the Antique Blue Taper Candle Holder, and a Note to Self notepad.

I could totally see myself wearing that outfit and leaving in that room. :)

I'd love to see your entries!!




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.
