What I Wore: Beaded Vintage Sweaters Edition

Hello, my name is Maggie and I am a hoarder. It's been about two days since I've kept something that I probably won't ever need. It's a problem. I am looking into support groups and trying to throw little things away here and there. Of course, it's so handy, what if I need that thing in the next 5 to 10 years?!!? Ugh, ok, so I'm not making wonderful progress in my hoarder-ism. However, it does sometimes have it's upsides - like when thrifting. Having a hoarder's eye makes for great finds when vintage shopping, which is why I started my Etsy shop.

I just had to buy cool things I found, whether they fit me or not. Eventually I had too many vintage pieces and not enough room. I put up a lot of pieces in the Etsy store that I would like to keep, but I just don't have the room, every once in a while though I find piece that I just can't give up (sorry world!).

Monday Design: Parisian Interior Design

Have I mentioned I love the French? If it hasn't been obvious up to now, it will be. Especially when it comes to interior design and architecture because I want nothing more than to live in a rustic French home with exposed stone walls. Nothing more. There, I just told you my life goal. Now we're besties. Right? Any-who, since that very much isn't even close to the case for me right now, I'm constantly day dreaming about it over the internet. That's why this architecture and design team was a no brainer.

Photo Friday: Grainy and Grimy

I don't remember how I stumbled across Jem Goulding's work, but I do know that I was instantly mesmerized. Something about the raw images and blurry shots brought me back to my punk rock days in high school where a little chaos made for a perfect day.

What I Wore: The Vintage Checks Edition

Every once in a while, I like posting a look using something from my vintage Etsy shop, Stranger Than Vintage (self promo, sorry!)! I love all of the vintage pieces I pick up, obviously since I chose them, so I like trying them on and showing them off. I have to tell you though, sometimes that just makes me want to keep the dress or shirt or whatever. I'm seriously debating about this one.

Monday Design: New Blog Obsession

I'm on here all the time chatting about my design obsessions and my photography obsessions and my fashion obsessions, but never do I really talk about where I pull a lot of this inspiration from. I am a blog hound and I'm sure many of you can understand that. Working in online media makes it really easy to "stumble" across new blogs and awesome content curators. I can say I have favorite blogs, but I probably can't count them on two hands. Today though, I wanted to share a new interior design blog I found that I cannot stop browsing through.

Photo Friday: Let's Find Momo!

This is probably the cutest photo project I've seen in a while. Have you found Momo yet? Sometimes it's easier than other to spot him, but I love looking anyway. I wasted more time than I should have looking for him when I first ran across the site.

Monday Design: Living in an Art Museum

Ever wonder what it would feel like to live in an art museum? No? Just me? Okay then. But I'd imagine that Luis Bustamante had the same thought when planning the design of this voluptuous Spanish apartment and in all of his work. The volume and shape of the furniture is balanced beautifully against the classic sculptural pieces. But what really caught my eye right off the bat was the perfect drama of interior design in all of Bustamante's designs.

What I Wore: The Let It Snow Edition

It's snowing! Okay, not right this second, but it's been snowing in Chicago for the past couple of days. I keep going back and forth on whether this is a reason to be happy or sad. Two days ago, when I almost slammed into the back of a car trying to break while going 15 miles per hour, it made me sad. Today, it ain't so bad.

Monday Design: Cozy Fireplaces

It's really snowing here in Chicago now. After a few dry and cold months, I am now remembering why I hate when it snows in the city. Travel times are terrible and everything is a dark slushy mess. All I want to do right now is curl up under some warm blankets in front of a ride and read or knit. Doesn't that sound pleasant  Too bad that's not happening for me any time soon, but maybe it is for you? If it is, can I come over? Please?

Photo Friday: Wanderlust

It's freezing here in Chicago. Beyond freezing. Like negative degrees freezing. All this cold is doing to me is making me catch the travel bug. Unfortunately, since I have neither money or a buddy to travel with, I have to settle for living vicariously through the interwebs, which is how I found Lukas Kozmus.
