Decked Out

6.06.2012


Vintage blouse and bracelet, 
Thrifted bodycon skirt (similar style here), 
Vera Wang wedge sandals, 
Mossimo cardigan (similar look here), 
Franco Sarto glasses, 
F21 floral bib necklace, 
Michael Kors Tortoiseshell watch.

We're back! Well, I'm back. I know it's only been a few days but for me it seems like an eternity as I've only just gotten internet in my new apartment. Five days with no internet access for a web geek like me is torture. Luckily, I've mostly been distracted with getting settled in the new place. It's such an amazing apt, with huge tin ceilings and 1920s tile flooring (it used to be a candy store!) - but the biggest challenge is that I have zero closet space...no, actually ZERO closets. So, you know, I'm currently surrounded by huge stacks of shoe boxes and feeling like the scary junk lady in Labyrinth

To help me de-stress Lauren was able to convince me to take a break from all my unpacking and enjoy the warm weather on the rooftop deck of our good friend (and fellow Southside Heartbreaker) Kara. Kara and her beau created a fantastic urban oasis complete with hammock and plush deck pillows that we put to excellent use.

PS. If anyone has any creative ideas on building storage space, I'd love to hear them!

xx, M

  16. Hi there! I live in the UK now, but I used to live in Canada. You'll never believe it, but in the UK, people didn't usually have closets. Instead they would have a piece of furniture called a wardrobe, and they put their clothes (their wardrobes) in it. Actually, it is still relatively uncommon to have what they call here, a "built-in wardrobe" (closet to you and me.) Go figure!

    Cheers,

  23. Gorgeous! I love the golden hues :) My little shoebox apt barely had any closet space either (C'mon nyc!) so I had to buy a clothing rack...Kind of thinking of getting another one :)

  26. Love these sun kissed pics! The new apt sounds beautiful but, living in an old building in LA, I know what you mean on no closet space! I always use those long clear storage boxes to keep sweaters or season clothes under my bed! I have racks on the back of doors for belts and scarves to still make it look cute! XO

  36. What great heels! Glad you are getting settled in. On HGTV, I've seen designers put beds on risers to get more storage height underneath. I use clothing racks for closet overflow, and can't live without them!

  63. Great Labyrinth quote :-) The challenge of no closet space in NYC is a big one. I also have a (very organised but still a) heap system in my flat!

    I need more bodycon skirts in my life... fabulous look
