And to commemorate the occasion I decided instead of outfit photos (because, who really wants to see what I look like in yoga pants and an ugly tee shirt) I would take pictures of my decorated and clean apartment! I am no interior designer by any stretch, but I do know what I like (vintage and retro) so that basically encompasses my decor choices. So hopefully you like what you see!
This was a project from Style School that I finished a couple of weeks ago. It took me awhile to find the right kinds of milk glass vases. I'm very particular about milk glass, since I love it so much!
And of course the dining room which we try to use at least once a week. Normally we find ourselves eating out for dinner, but I make sure we use this place on Thursdays.
Another style school project was the inspiration board. This was my favorite and it's usually a topic of conversation during parties or get togethers. Oh and my favorite thrift find of all time has to be my mid century credenza. It's the perfect place to hide my crafting supplies.
Oh and I'm proud to say that my dresser typically looks like this all the time. I try not to pile things on top of it because of all the perfume bottles. Nobody wants spilled bottles of perfume and having the house smell like a french whore house (as my friend's mother use to say when we were 13 playing with the perfumes at the cosmetic counters at Target). We would smell awful!!!
And just so we're clear, I never make my bed. My dad used to make me do it military style everyday so now that I'm an adult it's my one little rebellion (that and my tattoo which I got on my 18th birthday).
My collection of mid century kitchen ware is ever growing. It's my new passion, aside from fashion.
So there you have it! A little snippit of my daily surroundings.
