Viva La Veronica!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of being in Veronica Swanson Beard’s “showroom” – which, I later found out thanks to Bazaar, is actually her apartment. And what a beautiful, cool, downtown meets uptown chic apartment it is! I only saw as far as the distinct kitchen and living room, but the rest of the rooms look just as fun and lively….not to mention that amazing outdoor space. Check out the pictures from Veronica’s feature, and check out the Veronica Beard line she has with her sister-in-law, Veronica Miele Beard. Removable dickies on blazers?! Love.

The bits I saw:


and the bits stashed away somewhere in the three stories they have that I didn’t see:

Making Ikea Interesting

And happy Monday to you all! My first post back from the fashion trenches has nothing to do with fashion, thankfully. This is an ingenious idea I came across on L’internets a while back that I have been dying to share with you. Everyone (yes, everyone, I know you Park Avenue girls have them too!) has a little bit o’ Ikea in their apartment. Just because I’m sacrificing quality – sometimes – doesn’t mean I should have to sacrifice a little style. Bring on O’verlays, the brain child of Danika and Cheryle, two design-focused friends. They are fretwork overlay panels that can go on any secondhand or Ikea-type piece of furniture for a totally custom look. They are paintable, too! Check out some of their patterns (and amazing PRICES!):

How affordable is that? Now onto the good stuff…check out the finished images of how awesome O’verlays + Ikea can be!

I’m planning a trip to Ikea this week to get a new dresser – which O’verlay should I get?? xx

It's Over It's Over It's Over!!

Y'all. Fashion Week is DONE! My body has shut down ( I think it shut down sometime last Friday when I took a pause in the well-air-conditioned West Elm on 18th St) and I need to recharge. Let's meet back here next week and get fall coverage of fashion, home, gifts, and life in general going!

Watch and Love Alber a little more.

Three Cheers for Rosie!

England's greatest new import, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the VS model and budding actress, is also a huge style star. She gets it right always! Her acting leaves a little to be desired (I saw a clip from Transformers and she's definitely not quite there yet) but who cares because she looks so fab! Some of my favorite looks, below. Someone is definitely having the greatest style summer ever!
