Closet Overhaul

It’s all fine and good to clean out your closet. I’ve done it more times than I care to count. But what about turning you closet into something different altogether? Real Simple featured three closets that did just that… If you can’t use bright, funky wallpaper in a closet, you can’t use it anywhere! What a perfect little work nook, complete with DIY wrapping paper storage and a light drape…

Superbed

Lately, I’ve been seeing headboards paired with canopy beds everywhere! It’s amazing how trends pop up so suddenly and then, Poof!, they’re replaced with something else. Observe: I spied this one in one of my magazines not too long ago. Great mix of modern and vintage. Then, last month, I saw this one in Elle Decor, and a few pages later there was… … this one! Love ’em both. I…

Shaded Chandeliers

I need to inject a little bit of pretty into my day. I’ve been eyeing chandeliers with shades for a while. I love the look. It’s cool and modern. Maybe I’ll get one. Like the simple Rittenhouse Chandelier that we carry at the store. Nice and neutral. Interesting shape. It’s a winner. Rittenhouse Fabric Pendant at High Fashion Home, $599. I like how these chandeliers are all of the sparkle…

Running Wild

Judging by the crowds at Memorial Park at 5am on Saturday mornings, I’d say running season is in full swing. Time to tie on those sneakers and hit the pavement (or trail… or grass…). Currently, my running partner-in-crime, Cynthia, of Cynthetica fame, and I are preparing for the Nike Human Race, a 10K to warm up for the main event: the San Antonio Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon in November, and…

Whoever does the styling for Anthropologie is a sartorial genius! Every issue of the catalog is such a great source of inspiration for me, and this month’s was no exception. Some very lovely things caught my eye… Bespeckled tights for chilly days on page 27… A vibrantly colored rug on page 24… Plates to bring out your inner Picasso on page 21… Perfectly ladylike boots with a bow on page…

These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

I’ve been on the search for a tall flat boot practically since I came to be. The day after I started walking was when I started looking for that boot. Needless to say, it’s been a long, tough road. This year, I am determined to find that perfect pair. I like the distressing on these Vintage Tall Roadster Boots from J. Crew, but I wish it had a couple more…

Furniture vs. Fashion: Naptime

We spent one-third of our lives in bed, so surely the piece of furniture on which we rest says something about us. And wouldn’t you know it, a bed screams your style as much as, well, you. Call me crazy, but I fell in love with this simple silhouette as soon as it arrived in our store. The Paul Bed is a perfectly tailored shape paired with a luxurious fabric,…
