Happy Friday!!!

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.

Have a good weekend!

DESIGNER OF THE WEEK: MARNI (in black and white!)

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.

Aaaaaand back to the black piping again – I love this Large Suede Satchel:


Well that’s it for me – Have a great week!

Not So Lazy Saturday

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!!!
