My favorite day of the week has arrived. And not a moment too soon. Why does the week after a holiday always seem to drag on and on? I'm also excited for today because I'm thrilled to have Shavonda from A Home Full of Color over. Shavonda and I come from the same world when it comes to design and I always look forward to seeing what she does because so often I think, "that's exactly what I would do." And I've loved following her progress as she and her family took the plunge into a smaller (three cheers for small living) home and have been working their tails off to make it their own. I just love her. And to top it all off, I so agree with her Fess Up. See for yourself!
Hi Everyone! For those of you who don't "know" me, I'm Shavonda and I blog over at A Home Full Of Color. I'm BEYOND excited to be here today. I absolutely love Elizabeth and her Fess Up Friday series is one of my favorite things ever. I've been low key hoping and wishing I could take part in it so when I got the invite I immediately responded with a "Hell Yeah, I'm in!".
Ok so lets get to the nitty gritty shall we. Gosh I feel like I'm watching a torrid episode of Maury and we are just waiting to hear if the boyfriend's uncle's cousin's brother's next door neighbor is or isn't the father!
Ok so here goes.....I'm fessin up to being a total and complete HYPOCRITE. I blog about creating spaces on a budget and I'll give a major side eye and an "#aintnobodygottimeforthat" to a full priced side chair from Restoration Hardware, but put me face to face with a pair of these:
Or one of these:
and I'm done for. Designer shoes and handbags are my weakness and I'll gladly spend big bucks on em. I don't dive into fashion very much on my blog, but I love it almost as much as I love interiors...almost. Its kind of ridiculous...I mean there I am rummaging through the clearance aisle at target while carrying a $350 handbag. #dontjudge
Now don't get me wrong, my design approach is completely based on a splurge and save foundation so I will incorporate expensive pieces into my interiors as well, I just always feel I need to rationalize those purchases. When it comes to shoes and handbags I don't. I just do it quite simply because they are gorgeous and I like em.
So who's with me? Any other closet couture hoarders out there? Come out come out wherever you are!
Thanks so much for having me Elizabeth. Now if you'll excuse me I gotta go check on my ebay bids.
