Steal Her Style: Rachel Bilson

I have a huge style crush on Rachel Bilson. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look anything short of fabulous. She knows how to be casual and look like she’s not trying while still managing to be chic. Her staple pieces are plain, white v-necks, fitted blazers and boyfriends jeans.

Home Chic: My Home!

dream desk

I’ve finally finished decorating the apartment and I am so proud of it! It’s the first time I have lived somewhere and had full control over decorating decisions. In San Diego I had roommates, in DC I had roommates and in LA I lived with my sister but in Dallas I live with my bf and he sorta let me take the reins.

Of course it’s not a house so you can’t really make it your own but decorating helps!

I took it one room at a time and worked slowly and I am so glad I did. When I finished one room and the excitement of seeing it completed wore off, I would get started on the next. It prolonged my enjoyment. Of course, the decorating is never really finished. I am always scouring Home Goods, antique stores, World Market and Pier 1 for more items. I just love making my home a nice place to be.

Below is my completed apartment!

Kitchen:

This was easy to complete considering it is a beautiful kitchen to begin with. Dark mahogany wood, granite counters, green sub-way tile back-splash, dark wood floor…all it took was a few easy touches. A golden peacock feather serving-tray from India, a cookbook display (which is extremely useful), a spice rack and a few odd- and-ends. It is my favorite room in the house.

Pretty In Pink : Best Dressed Met Gala 2014

met gala 2014 pink dresses

I think it’s safe to say the ladies in pink stole the show. Whether it was the sweet bubble-gum pink cut to structured perfection on Kate Bosworth, the exciting fuchsia on Reese Witherspoon or the mix of two pinks in a perfect cropped-trend moment on Emma Stone, these ladies in pink stole the show.

My overall favorite was Emma Stone because the slight mid-drift hint, the two pinks, her messy braid…it was so fun. It was young but still classic and it fit her personality so well.
