I've been saving up good kitchen display photos but neglecting to share them! I love everything in this photo.

This makes the Honor Roll

I love a makeover. Pretty much any makeover themed show I can watch at least once. That is one reason I'm in love with this. The other is because it's a makeover for teachers! Not only a makeover but a really good decor makeover.

Now, in reality I rarely visit our teacher's lounge at school. Ours isn't even called a lounge, it's a workroom. There is no lounging going on in there. It's on the opposite side of the building, it's usually taken up by teacher assistants laminating, and why would I ever have time to hang out in the teacher's lounge?

This is a teacher's lounge I could make time for, this is the before (ours is much more modern but still rocking the white concrete slab walls and coke machine):

Here is the after...

wait for it...

For my overflowing bookshelf...

this would be a good idea. I have too many books and even at school my classroom library is overflowing. Love these invisible floating shelves.

Fashion Week: Vintage Inspired Badgley Mischka Show

Badgley Mischka meets Ali MacGraw Headwraps- The pants already are a nod to the 70's and the head wrap and flowy top bring it all together. Also, thank you for styling the models with curly hair!

Also, a little bit Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver (hair, hat, midriff, hot pants, platform sandals!) :

Fashion Week: Monday

Finally something else to think about other than 4th grade lesson plans and such, it's Fashion Week!

I just briefly browsed today's shows but here was my favorite: Lela Rose

Jewel tones, ladylike small details, and side braids. Sadly my hair could never really rock the side braid.

Because most days I just want to remove my cabinet doors, grab a few cans of paint and do this:
