the calm before the storm


This is a picture of my bedroom, and this coming Friday, there will be a gargantuan heap of clothes piled on my bed. That's because, typically, before I go out at night, I lay outfit options on my bed and try them all on. I am hoping there will be more viable possibilities than discarded ones on Friday, as one of my best friends and I are hosting a dinner party for Lucky's editor-in-chief. It will be an intimate gathering, but chock full of fancy people. So, the pressure's on, and I'm really wanting to hit it out of the ballpark this time. In my dream world, I'd have all three of the dresses below (by Issa, Missoni and Lanvin) as possibilities on my bed. Of course, in reality, I may only have one (if that!), along with an assortment of the usual Zara, H&M and vintage numbers. You know the fashion huntress I am! Anyway, I will be sure to show you a pic of what I settled on next week, post-festivities. Wish me luck!

Your blog is such a pleasant read. Very upbeat and simple. And I'm glad for the occasional glimpse into your personal life. Nice bedroom.

The Red Issa! Double Caps. It's so amazing, please update us on what shoe you wear to the dinner! P.s Your copy, to me, is the BEST in the fashion blogosphere. It's transparent you are a pro, and refreshing in a an arena of a liittle too much DIY writing and reporting. :) It is very inspiring to a fledgling writer/career gal like myself!

Hi Marlien!

I just adore your site and the design of your bedroom. I've absolutely fallen in love with the Manuel Canovas fabric you used as drapes and now I'm wondering if you'll share where your bed linens are from?

Thanks!
