The yellow color of this jacket just puts me in a good mood. The cropped silhouette, paired with the almost tribal beading is so chic. Easily paired with jeans and a tank, this jacket is a great wardrobe addition. But it's the color that keeps me feeling so cheerful!

Every girl dreams of a huge walk-in closet to house all of her beautiful clothes and shoes. Or maybe that's just me... either way, when I moved into the apartment that I now call home, I saw that there was the perfect little room that could become that walk-in closet. Over the past few months I have made that dream into a reality! Here is where our story begins:
a closeup of my wallpaper
I must say I was extremely happy with how the wallpaper turned out. It was exactly what I envisioned from the start. And for anyone who is wondering, wallpapering is not for the faint of heart. It is serious work, it took us 10 hours to wallpaper my small room!
And then the day came: my installation. Here are the results, with descriptions of the walls of the closet.
a view from the doorway
the right side, all shelves and drawers
the left side, hanging space and shelves above
that same side, once i put everything in its place, lots of gorgeous hanging space, and shelves above for shoes.
the right side, with sweaters on the shelves, an area for jewelry, and handbags and wraps in the cubby section. still lots more room to grow. time to shop!
So there you have it - the dream closet! I have resisted the temptation to sleep in there so far, but I still can't believe how great it turned out.

For a while now, I have been dreaming of getting a Goyard bag. For anyone that isn't familiar, they are the gorgeous printed totes that you see on the street all the time, with the Goyard signature logo print. They are available in many colors (green and orange are my favorite) and sizes, and you can get them monogrammed. Every time I spot one, it makes me green with envy! There are a lot of fakes out there too which look convincing, but I am after the real thing...
