pretty closets

these closets are beautiful and inspiring. makes me want to ditch my 2 x 4 closet and devote a whole room to clothes, accessories and old magazines.

complete my life

so this is the next big thing that will complete my life...

a guitar would be wonderful to have laying around the apartment. i can't play, but i'm obsessed. hopefully i can find a vintage acoustic guitar once flea market season starts up again.

a little new orleans in philadelphia

visiting my friend susan always makes me dream of hot summer days in new orleans. old school jazz music and glam rock bands are always playing in the background. relics from her life in new orleans sit around her loft apartment. we looked through inspiration photos she collected from vintage magazines and old fashion books and sipped on bottles of beer infused with lime.

for dinner susan made the best vegetarian spread... wild rice dressed with parmesan cheese and yogurt, spinach salad with blue berries and sunflower seeds, and a side of fresh green beans.

i learned one more thing about susan last night. her jewelry line, esther k., started as headpieces (shown below) and progressed to necklaces from there. susan is now busy working on new pieces to add to her collection. expect brass cuffs adorned with trinkets and crystals in the near future!!
