Brilliant Decor Idea for that Bookcase You Have

Where’s the best place to store and display your prettiest things and prized possessions? In a bookcase of course! I’m not sure if you call this a hutch or a bookcase or a shelving unit – but let’s just call it a bookcase. I saw the idea a few weeks back on WhoWhatWear and was smitten! Luckily for me, we already had this piece of furniture in storage! You know when you go places and you need to do something or display something to make it feel like home? Well, this is the first thing I did and let’s just say, it immediately made the place feel like mine! While this is definitely a ‘girly’ area, the flat screen TV and DVD player are sitting atop it – so CMV can’t be that upset. Right?

Brilliant Decor Idea for that Bookcase You Have

I tried to style each section so it ‘went together’ –  whatever that means…but I had so much fun putting things together and displaying my shoes, books, purses and jewelry!


Here we have some vintage purses. The far left clutch and the shoes to the right belonged to my grandmother – as did this elephant figurine, which I use to hold bracelets. The shoes, I don’t wear anymore since they are so fragile (I used to wear them ALL the time) but the clutch I still use a lot! Books pictured here: Harper’s Bazaar Fashion, How to Look Expensive and Cupcakes and Cashmere.

Sparkly Vintage Purse

I love these two books: Style Feed (about fashion blogging – so pick it up!) and The Extra Half an Inch. Most of my small delicate earrings and rings are stored in these little dishes. I also “made” these shoes. Kind of. I bought plain black shoes at DSW and glue-gunned on black sequins and fake flowers from Michaels…

Coffee table books and heels

 Ah, my Grandmother’s Ferragamos…in love with these! She passed them on to me for my 25th birthday!


Shoes as bookends? Always a stylish idea!


Stacked Spring scarves & a floral crown…

Scarves and floral crowns

What do you think about this idea? Would you try this in your own home?

Overall Chic with Kensie & a GIVEAWAY!

OverallChicwithKensie1I’ve been fan of kensie for awhile now! For those of you who don’t know about kensie, its an amazing clothing brand that brings runway fashion mainstream and more accessible – and might I add, their stuff is SUPER cute! Right now I’m totally digging these overalls! Like I mentioned last week, I’m loving the return of the 90s and you know I was all about the overalls back in the day. While these overalls would be so fun dressed up for a music festival or paired with some converse sneakers, I decided to switch things up and go for a more girly-glam look! I chose a plain white tank, then added a mint tweed jacket (a $20 score from H&M), some gold heels and a vintage bag and scarf for some flare. To top off the look, I added a little sparkle with one of my current favorite statement necklaces!

Now for the BEST part of this post! I’m teaming up with kensie to do a GIVEAWAY where the winner will get to CHOOSE a piece they want from kensie! That’s. right.
