Leather Jacket at Ragstock

I've been perusing the internet for a leather jacket for some time now but came to the conclusion that you really need to try one on in person to see if it fits. So I wandered around Wicker Park today and tried on about 15 jackets, ending on this one for only $20 at Ragstock. It was a tough decision without anyone there to give me a 2nd opinion. A little more masculine than I had intended.

Blog's 1st Birthday

I just realized that it's been one year exactly since my first post. I started this blog as a creative outlet and as a way to store the ideas I had about decorating, fashion, and cooking. Thanks to everyone who has been reading and commenting. Your thoughts mean a lot to me!

Spring Cleaning

I'm on spring break until next week, and instead of going to the Bahamas, or Mexico or something like that I've decided to rearrange our living room! I made a little entertainment center out of the Ikea Billy shelves we have. I had to cut a hole in the back of one of them to fit the TV though. I guess that's one of the perks of not owning "real furniture" (we got those Billy shelves for free because they were here when we moved in). I took a large kitchen knife and literally sawed the back out of the cardboard shelf so that the TV would fit.

End Tables

I'm planning on doing a little spring cleaning/revamping of the apartment. This will give me a chance to find some things I'll need when I live on my own. So it's time for some end tables. But I'm wondering how much these should match your coffee table. I found these for $50 on Craigslist, pretty great huh?

Totally random, but if you had a week like mine you might need a little giggle.

Emikli Art

How pretty are these illustrations by Eugenia Tsimiklis? They are so girly, exactly what I feel like spring is going to look like. Also, I have made the decision to ditch the concept of roommates and get my own place starting in June and can not wait to put up art on the walls.from Happy Cavalier

Hello!!...and Puella

PHEWWW! I was gone a long time. I really missed you all, and am hoping you missed me too. I won't bore you with stories of staying up late writing papers, or about being quiz-master at pub quizzes to make extra cash. All I will say is that I recently discovered Puella and am loving their dresses. I wore the one above to my birthday party this weekend and am already trying to think of excuses to put it on again. (Macy's recently had a sale and many of their print dresses were half price!)
