My wedding shoes are one of my most prized possessions, even over my wedding gown. I knew that when I got married one day that I would put more effort in to finding the perfect shoes than the dress. I was completely right. Don’t get me wrong I love my dress, but I absolutely adore these shoes. Valentino sure makes one hell of a comfy heel to wear all day long. The bright pink and bows are what drew me to these. I also love that I can wear them with so many pieces too!  This dress is always one that I pull out of my closet when I need to dress nice, but want to stay comfy as well. It is just like wearing a giant tee and I am so fine with that. My GiGi New York clutch is one of my favorite bags, sometimes I even bring it while running errands because it’s pretty big to fit so much in it. Plus the fact that it can be monogrammed doesn’t hurt either ; )

(Disclaimer: this room was pretty difficult to photograph and edit since it’s so dark)

This was one of my favorite rooms to create when completing our house. Every single room in our home is very light and bright, so I wanted to do something completely different in here. I was really aiming for a very Mad Men feel and I think I got pretty dang close. I just love how swanky it looks and all the dark colors. I think that If I were a room, this would be it. The background is dark with bright touches. While thinking of what I wanted, I decided to go with a deep navy paint with a matte finish. I did not want any kind of sheen or shine. When looking at the room, I think that the Prada sign and the light fixture really bring the whole room together. It will make me sad to leave this house one day, simply because of all the hard work and personal touches we have added throughout. Through the whole process, I have realized how much I love decorating. It’s like styling an outfit but on a grander scale.  This work has definitely been a labor of love and an amazing first home.
