Spotty Dotty

blouse: Marshalls (similar & here too). shorts: made ’em (soon to be up on Shop The Closet – stay tuned!). shoes: Vans. purse: Forever 21. arm candy: Lauren Elan, H&M, Michael Kors. nails: Essie “Exposure”.

I’ve been obsessing over polka dots lately. I spotted (heh, no pun intened) this blouse at Marshalls when on a break at work and HAD TO HAVE IT. It’s got a hi-low hem and romantic sleeves. Versatile to wear with colored trousers and heels or with distressed shorts and sneaks. My kind of top.

DIY: Clothes Rack

It all started off with Pinterest. (It’s become a serious addiction people) The inspiration became an actually possibilty then turned into a trip to the local hardware where I bought the supplies and only spent less than $50. The price may not be accurate due to a love of candy at the register and a couple interior design magazines. Guilty, I know. Anyways……THEN, it was a reality. (More like a dream come true) I’ve always wanted a clothes rack in my room, but NEVER had the space for it until a little “feng-shui-ing” did the trick. This has to be one of the easiest projects ever. I think the hardest part is the drive to a hardware store, not even. I bought 3 pipes (3/4 in width is perfect for a standard hanger), 2 elbows, and 2 of those flat things to screw it to the ceiling. I think I might as well call ’em “feet”. Seems appropriate right? All you need to do is just screw all the stuff together and into the ceiling and VIOLA! You have a clothes rack! It’s so much more convenient to have this in my room especially when designating my outfits for the week. Plus, it adds that pop of color to my white walls.
