Sweet Penny Lane.

White c/o Casper&Pearl "Penny Lane" floral lace dress, Silver F21 accessories, Ivory vintage Chanel purse, Tan ASOS suede ankle boots.
Morning Beautifuls!  I wanted to share with you a tiny sneak-peek of our apartment slowly coming together..one of the pieces I really admire in our apartment is this vintage sofa my roomie, Kaylie, found at an antique store.  Its still in really great condition and the soft ivory color and floral print is delicately beautiful.  The vintage piece complemented so well the beyond beautiful Casper&Pearl dress I received in the mail.  I am aalways in love w/ C&P pieces, they really are meant to have fun and twirl around in, ie. the last photo :p.  I love how the designer, Stacey, uses vintage fabric and comes up w/ an amazing dress everytime -- she really succeeds in bringing out the little sweet girl in me.
--
I'm going to the Alameda Antiques Faire today w/ the bf.  I'm on a hunt for more unique pretty vintage houseware pieces to add to our apartment; I hope to score: cup coasters, jewelry holders, maybe even a bed-side table.  The roomie and I are super obsessed with white/ivory furniture, leaving no room for bright colors lol..but, hopefully I'll find something..also contemplating of doing some apartment-DIY posts later on! :) 
Anyways, how have you lovelies been??  Right now I'm learning how to handle stress in the best way possible..the quote "Keep calm and carry on," really is true for me :p.  Aand, staying positive keeps me going.  I hope you're having a relaxing and fun weekend!  Btw, Happy October Beautifuls!  Keep inspiring (your posts aaamaze me everytime.)
♥, Kathleen.

WOow these uber understated ivory tones AND flirtatious play of lights § shadows next to you (highly) tend to make this Boudoir Elegance's vibrancy all the more appealing I can't help BUT say Dear !!!

You look so pretty and romantic, Kathleen! The vintage couch is remarkable. I'm a sucker for antique and French country furniture. The best place to get them are at estate sales.

I LOVE YOUR COUCH KATHLEEN! UGH it is so freaking cute I'm going to steal it foreal. Anisa and I were at the Alameda flea market too - we were tired, hungry, and thirsty about 80% of the time. Did you find any treasures?? There were sooo many cute furniture pieces, and I swear Anisa and I were staring at things and were like "This is SO Kathleen. I wonder if she has seen it..."

Miss you <3

P.S. Enter our giveaway for a Vintage Coach bag! :)
