fashion x home decor

Fashion and home decor definitely go hand in hand. I will be moving in about a week and am super excited about decorating my first apartment! So much so that I've been losing sleep over what color curtains I'll purchase and whether my dining room table will be wood or glass. A little much? Possibly, but there really is nothing like moving into your first place! 

My original idea for my apartment's color scheme was to go with light neutrals and bold golds with coral and/or pink accents. The fashion gods confirmed my plan. I was so inspired when I saw Alexandre Vauthier's Couture 2012 collection. Now I have a pretty good idea of how I will want my apartment to look. Take a look at some of the pieces from his collection and some corresponding photos of some beautiful homes decorated in whites and golds. (These outfits also remind me of Great Britain's 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony outfits, no?)

Excited for The Great Gatsby?

I am. I haven't read the book or anything (I'm planing to!), but I am very excited about the setting and therefore the fashion. Early 20th century fashion exudes class and prominence. Take a look at the trailer to see what I mean...

Fashion Inspiration

Even though it's been abnormally hot, extremely muggy and really stormy lately (at least in the DC area), I am still inspired by these cheerful outfits put together by one of my favorite bloggers. Check out these summery 'fits from her site
