Party Outfit and Fun Home Decor

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

The husband and I had such a fun time at the med school party last night! I ended up wearing the Trina Turk dress that I was thinking about yesterday. I had planned on trying on a few other options, but I took a nap when I got home (time change/work after spring break had me completely exhausted) and by the time I woke up I had to make a quick outfit decision!

(Can't tell because we take awful pictures but hubs wore a skinny tie. I LOVE skinny ties...they have such a fun retro/vintage feel!)


Since I'm in the middle of redecorating our bedroom (and now I've got my sights on the living room too) most of my shopping lately has been home related. This past weekend (ok, it was Saturday night) I bought a dyson ball vacuum! I am in love. I tried it out right away and loved it so much that after vacuuming every room I decided to use it on all the woodwork in our home (our apartment is in a very old house so there is a lot of woodwork)! I was one vacuuming obsessed lady!

(I'm pretty sure this picture if from the home shopping network website)

The Poe Cat didn't care too much for the vacuum, but he loved the box!


I had to find something else to amuse him though when he started trying to eat it...


Today after work I headed to Marshalls in search of new picture frames to replace the ones on our nightstands. Despite all the negative things I usually have the say about shopping here, I actually had quite a successful trip! I bought two of these pretty white frames! They definitely go with the room much better than the green ones we currently have. I also bought a fun, springy ironing board cover!



(I'm not sure there is any way to take an attractive picture of an ironing board, but you get the idea...)

I was feeling crafty when I got home so I used the leftover ribbon I had from updating our lampshades and made this little ribbon board.



I love it, but I don't know what to put on it! Pictures I suppose? I'm obviously slightly obsessed with DIY decor projects lately! Do y'all have any fun things you've made around your home? Where do you get DIY decor inspiration/ideas?

  1. I love that ribbon board, you are so crafty!! Yes, definitely hang it somewhere - maybe in an office or above your dresser, and put all your favorite photos in it.

    Beautiful dress too by the way. Cobalt blue is such a bold color and looks great on everyone!

  13. Love the dress. Very cute. I am so jealous over the vacuum cleaner! I've wanted a Dyson ball for so long but I always find a reason not to buy one (i.e. something else to use the money fore). :Sigh: Love the ribbon board. I'm sort of starting to get into the DIY thing myself. :)

  14. blue is so your colour! I have a dyson and the first time I used it I fell madly in love, I would spend ages using it so I could see all the dirt left behind from our old cleaner. Enjoy!

    Our cat does the same thing every time we have big boxes-- he has to hide in them! So funny. :)
