I'm currently exhausted from a misguided day of DIY philanthropy. (I stupidly offered to paint my friend's apartment and furniture. Enter Murphy's law, and she now temporarily lives in an apartment with a lot of half-painted walls and objects.) However, I have a bit of energy to review what happened during my uncalled-for holiday absence. Friends? Family? Joy and good cheer? Yes, yes. And a lot of pretty new things.
|the big one. nicer pictures of our apartment, coming right up!|
|Tracy Reese coat from Anthro – on sale for ~$85 down from $288 right before Christmas. |
Technically I bought this, but the boyfriend wrapped it and called it a Christmas present.
|the salad plates and the napkin holders|
|Touch glove from Echo|
(you can keep them on while using your smartphone)
|velvet pillow from Urban Outfitters|
|bow necklace from CuteAbility on Etsy|
|why yes, I am a dork.|
And, inevitably, reckless after-christmas sale shopping:
|Dress from Zara with an adorable print of women walking dogs|
|J. Crew bronzed leopard shirt, $10. Waaaay prettier in person.|
|Simrin Optic Linen Napkins from Burke Decor (to make into pillow covers)|
Including, as always, some killer finds at Last Chance:
|three dots dress (but in purple), $13|
|Rebecca Taylor dress, $13|
|Alice boots by Tracy Reese, $50|
Now that I feel utterly spoiled, overindulgent, and guilty, I promise that (a) the family time and holiday cheer was by far more important and enjoyable than the presents, I was just being sarcastic; (b) my next post, which will NOT take two weeks to appear, will have actual content, like possibly some "after" pictures of my aforementioned friend's bedroom.
