Not Bad Knock Off

overstock

 

I spotted this chair on Overstock today and my mind was swimming with the possibilities.  For the price, I’d remove the faux-Missoni print and recover the chair with a solid leather fabric or bold print!  Chiang Mai Dragon would look fabulous!  I’m loving this print too…

Shoe to Space

When I spotted this shoe I immediately thought of the blue wall color in Carrie Bradshaw’s redecorated NYC apt.  I thought I’d post a budget friendly shoe option for once – guiltless shopping right before Christmas!

What’s better than a gift guide with all ideas under $100?  A guide where you could buy all of your gifts for that special Material Girl (or Guy) with just the click of the mouse.  Trust me, it’s crazy out there – I should’ve done more online shopping!  I feel like I just got home from combat after spending 3 plus hours at an outlet mall…shudder.

The Material Girls have created a “master” gift list so that you can wow those special ones in your life with something creative AND price conscience (seriously there are some great deals on here).

This Furniture Friday was no easy task!  Typically when you add any kind of moving mechanism to a chair it suddenly becomes completely hideous!  But let’s be honest, a chair that moves is functionally amazing!  My personal favorite is the Eames Lounge Chair.  Covered in Missoni…perfection!

I spotted these beauties on the Zoe Report and was instantly smitten!  I think this living room (via this is glamorous) is the perfect translation from shoe to space!
