in yesterday’s post, i recommended adding a pop of pink to liven up a room. well, here’s a little inspiration for the skeptics. go ahead and admit how dope a pink mirror would be in your foyer…i’ll wait…
instagram is my favorite social media platform because of my love for photography. it gives me a chance to see glimpses of beauty from other people’s lives in real time. check out some of my favorite instagrammers; they’re so dope until you’ll download instagram just to follow them.

ever the procrastinator, it only took me six months to paint my chalk board wall. here’s what i used: rust-oleum chalk board paint, small brushes, roller brush, edger and tape.
it’s warm in dc and i’m loving life, shopping at zara, decorating my apartment with tulips in mason jars, growing herbs on my balcony, enjoying photo shoots with friends and breaking records for the many, many ways that i can wear chambray shirts.

i moved into my new apartment over the summer and didn’t have the urge to decorate. instead of forcing the process, i decided to wait until the home decor spirit struck. well, it finally happened. while on the way to my favorite ethiopian take out spot, i stumbled upon simon vintage, a haven for well curated and reasonably priced vintage goods. never the person to walk past a vintage or thrift store, i swiftly walked in and found a gem of a place.
i spotted the green cubes and instantly thought they would make an excellent coffee table. the owner thoughtfully suggested i place a piece of glass on top that a previous customer had taken from a large coffee table. due to my self-control issues, i was forced to also purchase the vintage ceramic lion. needless to say, i’m in love with my new coffee table–much classier than those wood palettes.
btw, that black and white photo is a picture of my granny at 14. everybody thinks it’s me–our resemblance is crazy!
good wood, a cute hideout in dc’s u street area, hosted a happy hour last friday. the store’s inventory includes vintage furniture, clothing, and perfume–a deadly combination for a girl like me.

we here at politics and fashion reject the notion that personal style and interior design are synonymous with materialism and over-priced goods. wednesday windup is devoted to this concept by providing some “hump day” goodness with affordable price tags. enjoy!
instead of lattes, my weekly splurge is fresh flowers. i love the way they brighten a room. peonies and sunflowers are my favorites, but i’ll literally take anything that has a green stem and place it in a vase. this bunch was only $2.99 at the grocery store and it’s lasted all week thanks to some tlc.
what are your splurges?
