A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2014: The Best of Street Style


As New York Fashion Week comes to a close (and my carpal tunnel is flaring up), my favorite thing to do is catch up on all of the beautiful street style shots by fashion photography giants like Tommy Ton, Phil O, and Bill Cunnigham. They capture the catwalk, but more importantly they capture how the leaders in fashion- editors, stylists, designers, models, and bloggers wear the season's top trends in real life...or they're version of real life anyway.

What's more beautiful is the diversity, much like the thriving yin and yang of the people of New York. On the same sidewalk (glamorous in the movies though cluttered with scaffolding in real life) you find the socialite in a pencil skirt and perfectly pointed pumps next to the young model in her cut-off denim and studded boots, both equally stylish. I love you, New York.
