My new favorite outfit

Dress is from Spool No. 72

Lots of clothing-related posts recently, my friends. But there's just something about the warm spring air that makes me want to redecorate...myself!

Chez moi, numero trois

You may remember previous "Chez moi" installments, such as this one and this one. Well, onward to the next!

This is my desk area. It's still very much a work in progress. I'd like to keep adding more framed photos to that wall and let it keep growing, but as of now it's still in its nascent stage. The desk itself I've had since high school - I bought it unfinished and dear ol' Dad stained it. (There's also a bureau and bookcases that match.) My room is a bit small, though, so there's no space for a chair. I bought a stool last year at Target but it's too high so most of the time I just use my bed. (The bed and desk are only about a foot and a half apart.)

Here's a close of up the ephemera. L.N. Fowler Phrenology skull was a Christmas gift from my parents; butterfly is from Bug Under Glass. The trophy is a cross country award for "most dependable player" from my freshman year of high school. (Notice also the "get out of bed and go for a run" inspiration board of sorts in the left of the top photo.) There's more to the story of the trophy, but suffice it to say I had a really hard time when I first started running and I've kept the trophy as a reminder to always stick it out when things get difficult.

And we're back!

$29.99 (a steal!) at Target

I had a bit of a mini shopping spree at target today. Among my purchases were these Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges.

And yes, that is velcro you see.

{How cool is this vintage postcard?}

I'm traveling to Hawaii with my best friend Karla for the next 2 weeks -- blogging will resume once I'm back!

Brimfield self portraits

I took this at Brimfield last year (it's my reflection in a mirror, in case you can't tell.) I kinda like how the photo turned out so I thought I'd share!

Here's another mirror-reflection self portrait, this time with my mom:

The Brimfield Antique Show is held yearly in May, July, and September and features over 6,000 dealers spread out over 23 fields. In the past we've had really great luck going on the last day of each session, as you're more likely to get a good deal. The dates for the 2010 shows are May 11 - 16; July 13 - 18; September 7 - 12. One year, my mom and I saw Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler. True story.

Style icon: Reese Witherspoon

You may have noticed that there are some common themes that run through my posts: classic American style, 1950s silhouettes, stripes, nautical colors (hello navy and brown and red!) So it should come as no surprise that the celebrity style I covet is Reese Witherspoon. Check out some of the shots below -- here's someone I'd love to share a closet with!
