Wednesday Wishlist…

It’s been awhile since I’ve even wanted to shop… the chilly weather and dreary skies have kept me from thinking about potential updates to my spring wardrobe. But alas… no matter how cold it was outside today, it’s the first official day of spring! This should be celebrated with a cute skirt, striped top, and fresh new sandals for the season. Happy Wednesday!

Wednesday Wishlist…

Wednesday Wishlist: Fall TransitionThe transition between seasons often means a morning clothing crisis… if only my drawings would come to life over night and I could have a full closet of already put together looks!

This dress would work just as well with tights and a sweater for the cooler weather. I’d pair it with black chain strap flats and this covetable bag. Happy Wednesday!

Striped Curtains…

Striped Curtains DIYSo I’ve been searching for ways to upgrade our little apartment and came across these. They are the perfect way to make a statement and are in keeping with the BF’s two rules (no pink & no flowers!)

I bought simple curtains at Ikea and picked up 6 yds. of black cotton twill in the garment district. I chose to sew my stripes on instead of fusing them. It’s taking a bit longer than anticipated–lots of fabric in a very small space–but I hope to finish in the next couple of weekends.

Until then, my drawing desk is doubling as a sewing table. Living in New York sure is about making the most of your space!
