Cheap and chic

Despite the fact that the name makes me feel awkward, Nasty Gal is a really fantastic website with inexpensive, trendy clothes. Just look at all these finds! And I really like all the girls' sassy poses.

Aspen Contemporary

When Brad and I recently took a bike ride from Aspen to the Woody Creek Tavern (that's another story for another day), we rode along the mountain side and looked down upon this amazing contemporary house. I fell in love with the completely unexpected modern architecture. Randomly, today I stumbled upon a photo of the exact same house.

Hanging from the chandeliers...

Watching last night's GG, I noticed that Blair had a chandelier in her NYU dorm room...and while unrealistic, it got me to thinking about how much I like chandeliers... The great thing about them is that they come in literally every color, shape, and size (OH and lets not forget price!). Here are a few that I came across while browsing:

"Florette" Chandelier, Horchow

Bird's Nest Chandelier, Etsy

Red Pagoda Chandelier, Pieces

Veranda Round Chandelier, Pottery Barn

3-D Chandelier, Urban Outfitters ('fake', cheap!)

Wine Bottle Chandelier, Pottery Barn

Milk Glass Chandelier, Horchow

Goodbye Skinnies!

Rachel Bilson and Natalie Portman have helped me finally come to terms with the fact that skinny jeans look horrible on me, and it's o.k. to go back to boot cut and wide leg. That is all.

here's to hoping you have a very restful weekend....

(and I hear we might want to keep our phones readily available tonight, someone has a big dinner date....)

This is my inspiration for my new DIY project...I've wanted a blackboard forever, but most of the ones I want are a little expensive and/or just not the right size for what I want. We will see how/when this happens, but here's to hoping it is successful!

A Little Getaway

I love this Texas Hill country ranch that was just featured in Garden and Gun. I think I could really find myself here.

Found Barbara Hill Design while on the job hunt. She works alone with no employees in case you are wondering. Which is actually pretty cool.
