So I went to a movie on Sunday. Which is a big deal cause I have not been to one for about a year.
I saw Birdman. It is not the movie to see if you are afraid of heights. Like every scene was someone sitting on a ledge or about to jump off a ledge. I spent the whole time looking everywhere but the screen.
Don't get me wrong it was a good movie but even more the acting was ridiculous. I can see why it is up for all of the awards....but it gave me angst.
Movies are not cheap anymore. About 25.00 [movie and popcorn]. That is one reason my husband won't go with me. I want my own bag and I don't share. He doesn't understand that because it is more economical to get one large tub.
Nope. His hands are like shovels and it becomes a race. I can't take the pressure but more than that I find myself concentrating on getting my hand in the bucket than watching the movie.
So this is going to be my first fashion post. No worries....this is still a design blog and always will be. It's just that it took me a long time to define my style and quit buying things that hung in my closet so I thought I would share my wisdom with you.
Let's start with these....
J Brand Maria Photo Ready black jeans. Hands down the best ever. Yes...they are expensive but I wear them practically every day! [I have 2 pair]. They fit like a glove and do not fade.
I pretty much only wear these and regular jeans so that saves me a lot of money right there.
A white shirt is a staple for me....I have about a 100. Nah.... but one whole section in my closet is all white.
I love Banana Republic no iron fitted shirts but they run small so I go up a size.
A pair of black ballet shoes.
I have these Cole Hann flats and they are so comfy. I got them on sale and might buy another pair.
I am strictly a small cross body black purse kind of gal. I like hands free.
I like this one from BR. I never got into the large purse trend.
When I travel or need more space I use a bag like this also from BR.
I keep it basic.....
I love boots in the winter and I have both of these from Fry. The tall ones are 5 years old and at the end of each season I take them to be shined up so they are ready for the next year! Yes...they are pricy but I always wait for a 20% off sale. Plus they will last.
I shop a lot at BR, J Crew and Madewell. Here are a few great looks....
I recently purchased this scarf and shirt from BR. You can always catch a "40% of everything in the store" sale....which I did!
The denim work shirt.....I might have about 10 of them....if my husband is reading....which he never does but you can bet [with my luck] somehow he will stumble across this post....I only have 2.
Goes great with white and black jeans.
Again more neutrals.
I am sure it looks a bit boring to most of you but it saves me from standing in my closet....with that deer in the headlights kind of look.
It is a little like how I approach design....neutrals but then I can add some color and pattern with pillows.
Just to keep the design ball rolling .....this chair that I saw on Classic Casual Home slayed me.
