I used to have my own two bedroom apartment, where the second bedroom served as the “office” area where I did homework. Since I work all week and go to school at nights, it is nice to spend my weekend time mostly at home, even if I am doing homework. It did help to have that separate space in which to get away from everything. Right now my boyfriend and I share an 800-s.f. one bedroom. I love our apartment, but we DO need more space. Lately I have been daydreaming about how I would decorate my own office area if I again had one.
If you can’t tell already from many of the things on this blog, I am a big fan of black and white and high contrast in general. I also love metallics and clean, modern lines. Some of my favorite pieces lately, when put together, remind me of sort of a modern Hollywood Regency style.
I have the Audrey Hepburn print and the zebra rug, but everything else is on my wish list.
Marni is an Italian fashion company that’s been around since the 90’s – it is sometimes described as “bohemian”, but most of my favorite pieces from Marni are pretty classic. I am pretty eager for spring to come – as much as I love snow, I would rather be wearing white than walking in it at this point. Here are a few white and black Marni pieces that I love right now ~
I love this bracelet– I always love the ribbon-tie on bracelets and necklaces though I am not sure how practical that is when you’re wearing it.
This tote continues my tote bag obsession – it is a simple design but there is some variation in the linen that makes is beautiful.
I am obsessed with white with black piping on just about anything so these Marni square-toe pumps fit the bill. They’re on sale right now – 50% off!!
This Marni Cotton Short Dress is really simple but I love the ribbon on the back – I am wondering what accessories would look great with this? I am sure there is a belt that might add some shape if need be?
This clutch is 50% off right now – Maybe it’s a black and white thing, but I also happen to be obsessed with zebra print.
It’s Saturday, so I am in my usual routine of gym, coffee, breakfast, laundry and homework. Fun, huh? At some point this weekend I am going to go see my friend Leah’s new baby too! So excited!!! But anyway, with everything on my list I shall leave you with this – one of my many Shopstyle ensembles I put together. I am sad the Aldo purse sold out before I could get it. I am pretty sure if I win the lottery I will buy every color of those Tiffany sugar stacks rings – they look great with just about every outfit. I included my favorite perfume – Dior Addict 2 – I am pretty sure I am the only person who actually likes or even knows about that one 🙂 And of course, Christina Hendricks? So beautiful. I love Mad men – the story line is great and all but it’s the retro imagery that I love the most. Have a good weekend!!!
