It’s easy to grab a pair of plain solid color curtains from IKEA or Target, but when it comes to mixing patterns with rug and curtain pairings, it can take a little more finesse.

I have a gala to attend in February and like any good debt monster, I want a new dress. So, time to get busy with my favorite hobby: online shopping for literally anything. The event dress code is cocktail to formal and based on press photo stalking from last year’s gala, pretty much everyone was in cocktail dresses. I don’t love rewearing clothes to events that I’ll potentially be photographed at (diva status here) so I thought Rent the Runway would be a good option here. I’m a generous diva though, and there’s no point in keeping all my hard work to myself, so here are my favorite Rent the Runway little black dresses and a Rent the Runway referral code for $30 off your first order.Keep Reading

In DIY by Michelle KowalskiLeave a Comment

If you went online in the summer of 2016, you’ve inevitably seen Shibori dye and the indigo everything as a result. Shibori is essentially tie-dye but using only indigo instead of the rainbow of colors. Which makes it pretty much foolproof since there is no risk of accidentally using too many colors and dying your shirt poop brown (we’ve all been there). The kits are easy to find online and the real fun comes in with trying all the different Shibori folding patterns to get one of a kind results.
