Hi guys!

This is an outfit I wore last week to work one day. I keep seeing these ridiculously chic women wearing satin bows...under collars, as chokers, hanging down from the neckline of dresses. I knew I had to get one! There's this adorable stationary store in NYC called Paper Presentations in the Flat Iron district that not only has decorative paper, but all sorts of colorful trims. I bought two yards of this black satin for $1.99 and picked up a skinny bit of red velvet, too. I've never been a huge necklace lover, so scarves and various types of trim fill that space marvelously!

It has been a very busy weekend here, so it feels nice to lay in bed with my tea to write this blog post. I had a roommate move out and another move in which set the apartment is a state of disarray all weekend. I've been about Brooklyn trying to thrift pieces little knick knacks we now need, and hauling it all back to the apartment. Then my OTHER roommate and I made the trip to IKEA today to buy furniture we're missing. Kinda odd when you have a dining room table with no chairs to sit in lol. Anyways, it was a long trip to get there, haul everything back, and then put it all together this evening. My wimpy little arms are crying! :'( I can't lie, it does feel nice to have these new things to make our apartment feel home-y again. I love spending time at this place! It's the perfect refuge at the end of a long day.

Will be back soon with another post: Happy October! Perhaps the greatest month of the year :)

With much love,

Lauren

Lovely look!

Indiana is getting an Ikea soon and I'm overly excited for it, haha. I think it's a sign of my transition into adulthood.

Very chic, done w/ thrifting style :)

I have to ask - did you go to the IKEA in Elizabeth, NJ??? I remember very clearly when that first opened - such a big deal! WOW! We all headed up there to see this new style of furniture & etc ... and ... well, some of us loved the store! but were kinda bugged that it was right under a flight path for Newark Airport and you couldn't talk to one another in the parking lot EVEN IF YOU YELLED!!! ;) ... anyway - hope the new roommate is as wonderful of an addition to the apt. as you are :)

With love,

Jeannee,

We actually went to the one in Brooklyn in the Red Hook neighborhood! It was my first time going and like you, I loved it! Such an innovative shopping experience for home goods. x

HOW rude is that anonymous fool! I adore wearing ribbons or lady ties from shirts. I was SO happy to find a vintage black lady tie bow in a charity shop a year ago or so- it looks really sweet hanging down from a shirt like the nice D&G stripy one I got for £1 You look beautifully chic!x
