Obsession: Rachel Zoe

14 Sep

"Style is sort of the best way to say who you are without having to speak."-R.Z.

The season premiere of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project brought a lot more than outrageous furs, big-framed sunglasses and the periodic “uh-mazing”s of celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe.  It gave fans an inside look to Zoe’s new fashion line.  I pretty much screamed, not just because of the clothes, but because the fit model was my high school friend Jordan.  It was crazy seeing her on TV with such an influential stylist.  She may have been the original reason why I tuned in that night, but Rachel herself is the reason why I will keep watching and have been obsessing about everything Zoe; including comedian Amy Phillips impersonation videos.

 

Not only am I obsessed with her line (available at major retailers like Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus) but I am completely in love with her.  I think she is AMAZING with her work ethic and passion for what she does and I only hope to one day love my job as much as she loves hers.

Decorating Obsession: Texture

28 Jul
Textured interior
It’s no secret that I have been consumed with shopping for my first apartment.  And by shopping I mean dreaming about all the things I wish I could have in my house.  During my nightly online shopping time I have spent plenty of time on various decor sites.  What I have realized is that I am obsessed with the idea of solid, textured materials in pretty much everything from bedding to bath mats to laundry bags.  I love the antique and feminine feel I get from these textured pieces.  Obviously I wouldn’t use all of them but picking the one or two pieces is going to be very hard.

To Buy or Not to Buy?

Sam Edelman 'Kellan' Wedge

I saw these on the Sam Edelman website and I absolutely love them.  Then I come to learn that they are available at Nordstrom, which means I could exercise my employee discount AND maybe use my Nordstrom Note that I will be getting soon.  Hmmm, decisions, decisions…

Obsession: Decorative Bedding

2 Jul

Since I will be moving into my very first apartment at the end of August I have developed a new obsession, decorating.  More specifically I have become obsessed with finding my perfect bedding.  Of course I have had my own room at my parents’ houses, the dorms and my sorority house but nothing to the extent of decorating that is completely mine. I really like the idea of texture and mixing neutral comforters with bright colored sheets.  I have found a ton that I like but have narrowed down my choices to four.  I have some time to decide but until then I will continue to obsess.
