My Carrie Bradshaw moment

Two months ago I experienced what I call my "Carrie Bradshaw moment". My Mr. Big not only asked me to marry him, but he also completed my dream walk-in closet in the very same weekend. How did I get so lucky?? And although there was no Manolo, the sparkly diamond ring was a pretty good substitute ;)

When we moved in, this room was basically a concrete box with a hang bar already installed. We purchased this snap-in laminate flooring {it looks like real hard wood!} from Lumber Liquidators for under $300 and Wes installed it himself. With quite a few layers of self leveling concrete and some sweat, he was able to finish the floors in a couple weeks and it completely transformed the room. I made plenty of trips to Ikea for the perfect organizers and the room went from a concrete box to my own personal boutique. Of course, I am still putting the finishing touches on it, but every time I walk in I'm reminded of Carrie, and I can only hope to be half as fabulous as she was.





Until next time...

Pattern Mixing

Mixing patterns is a fun way to spice up your outfit when you're in the need of an update. The key to successfully wearing this look is to mix a bold pattern with a more subtle one. It's also best to try and incorporate only one bright color, as more than that can become too busy. Have fun!

A little sequins goes a long way

I have been crushing over this sequin jacket for some time now and the new year was the perfect time to wear it! Sometimes, when you are feeling a little blah, just throw this baby on with a pair of great jeans and a tee-shirt and you're instantly the life of the party. Cheers!
