prada winter 2010 lookbook
can i call something beautiful that isn’t technically beautiful? cause i would definitely refer to prada’s fantasy lookbook. kp

its 90 degrees out
i’m enjoying a cold cup of tea while people watching from my apartment in downtown chicago. i bought this cheap allegro tea from whole foods last week for only about $4, and i’m just now trying it for the first time. its a light, floral tea, and yes, i do have classy mason jar cups. i’m also enjoying my extensive decemberists playlist on itunes. kp

i'm officially addicted
to the library. it probably wasn’t the best idea moving in right next door, because every time i look out my window to see the gargoyles, i’m reminded of just how many books are being held inside those walls. currently, i have ten books checked out. two are non-fiction, the other eight are fictitious. currently i am reading my little war by flemish author louis paul boon. its one of...
breakfast for dinner
my hubby, cody and i had my homemade buttermilk waffles for dinner last night, finally utilizing our awesome table. obviously, mine is the one with a load of sugar and a dr. pepper sitting right next to it. kp

and just to be mean;
here’s a picture of the lake and millennium park today from my bedroom window. i know, this apartment is sick. kp
here’s my new shoes from nordstroms. they might be returned very shortly because after walking from cody’s apartment to the train station, my feet were bleeding (and no, i’m not exaggerating, my feet literally bled). maybe they just take a while to break in. or maybe they’re no good. either way, they’re nice to look at. steve madden ‘trouser’...
table for two
we finally found a place for our table. it’s a “norden” gate-leg table that seats up to four from ikea for $179. it has a beautiful glossy finish (unfortunately, one of the corners was chipped when we pulled it from the box, shame shame ikea). both sides of the table fold down to make the table less than 10 inches wide. the table also has six drawers (three on each side, all of...
all the pretty horses
i love love love this leifsdottir “horse play” printed silk dress. if i wouldn’t feel guilty for dropping three hundred dollars on a day dress from bloomingdale’s, i would buy it in a heartbeat.
hey all, sorry i’ve been mia the past week. i was busy moving back up to chicago. this time, not in the dorms. my roommate morgan and i got a beautiful place in the south loop, with a view of the library and lake. it has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a kitchen with dish washer, a living room with hardwood floors, an in-unit washer and dryer, and best of all, the cta train platform for...
