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. 

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.)
