MY DAY





Boy Oh Boy.....I never thought a fashion post on dresses would create this much controversy!

While I appreciate everybody's feelings about cheap clothes....sweat shops etc.....I was just trying to give a price range for everyone and of course I realize that in all likelihood most people who read my blog could be older.....I don't discriminate on age, sex or religion!

Just to be clear....I did show a few dresses that might need a wrap [which I'll often wear if I feel too exposed] AND I will also wear a bra when appropriate....although I do admit to being drawn to outfits that I can hide the fact that I loath bra's!

So I think we should all agree that the world is full of people who are a different size, age, rich and poor who can make their own choices everyday accordingly.

I also say we lighten up and get back to design capish?

Like I have been whining about for a month....things are pretty hectic around here for Sherika.

I've got 2 showhouses to produce [how does someone go from saying I will NEVER do a showhouse to getting involved in 2 at the same time] so making some quick decisions is imperative. 

I might also add....I seem to be frozen right now when it comes to decision making.

My day on Monday was driving around trying to get my Pinewood Forest showhouse nailed down.

First place was Ikea where I have not visited in a while....


This bed must be new and it was adorb.

This fabric....

A new pillow....


Throw


Rug...

I picked up a few things....

While I was in the area I stopped into Serena and Lily

They definitely have a look and I love it....



So fresh and pretty....





Yes please to this bench!

And these baskets....

Started working my way back to Buckhead and stopped into one of my favorite shops....Antiques and Beyond and saw this piece of art that was pretty swell....

Then I headed to World Market which used to be right next to my grocery store but they had the nerve to move to another location.

This rug and pillows below are new!




And of course no day is complete without a stop into HomeGoods!

 I was pretty tired when I came home:)

Shopping can do that to ya.

So one more thing about the fashion post....and the online store Shein.  I actually googled them to see if there were any reviews and found one here and here 

There was definitely good and bad.....

Who is glad it's Friday.....can you see my hand waving wildly in the air:)

I have to agree that I was taken aback by some of the comments on your fashion post. I guess you and I are less serious about such things and go along with I'm okay, your okay and allow people to have an opinion of their own without reprimanding them. You know you are popular when people start criticizing you! LOL Love that striped chair from Serena and Lily and the brightly color fabric from Ikea is a keeper. So many fun things at Homegoods!! Just keep being you and don't let the negativity change who you are and what you want to show us. I love to see where your mind will take us next!!!

You are such a productive woman! I had to go back and read the fashion post comments. :) I remember thinking that I would need a strapless bra...and that some would be good for a balmy vacation. Anyway, I love your fashion posts!

I still have the plant from IKEA that you said you can't kill...and I've ignored it and it's in a dim foyer and is still going strong after four or five years!

Thanks for the links to the reviews on Shein. I had googled it myself yesterday and saw a. Wide variety of comments and if your will for the “hit or miss” way to buy, then go for it! I thought the styles you shared were very cute, but I won’t be giving them a try.

You’re my kind of shopper, going to all those great places in one day. The only one you missed was Target! Loved everything you shared. I’m heading to my HG store today, haven’t been in a week! I’m lucky I have 2 within a few miles of my house!

Happy weekend!
