Last Week, I ...


...Tried out red lips and realized by days' end that I had covered every inch of my pout in about 20 layers of lipstick. Oh well- all the better to smooch you with, my dear.


...Celebrated officially moving out of Studio 54 with a Champagne toast at the new place. The Bubbly was a thoughtful gift from my Cousin and his Wife. The Boy and I enthusiastically opening such a gorgeous bottle at such a happy moment in our lives reminded me that I need to think to do more giving like that. Friends: Expect more Bubbly at your Milestones. PS - Studio 54 got its name because I needed a blog label for it and I lived in a Studio. Henceforth, all posts about the new place will be under MINI PENTHOUSE- because I live on the top floor. I know, I know- my creativity knows no bounds.


...Immediately went to ZGallerie to browse their merchandise and steal ideas. This mirror is gorgeous but for 399- no way. Luckily... I found a great alternative which will be revealed in a DIY post soon.


...Received my new prescription Warby Parker glasses. Make no mistake that these are the most Hipsterish thing I own... BUT, they're kinda fun. I think I'll keep them around to rock as my funky pair. PS- I am a smiley person, not sure why so surrious here-probably because I had just arrived home from work.


Now in the words of Jay-Z: on to the next, on, on to the next... happy new week!

I need new glasses so bad! Those are really cute

Leia said...

Those red lips look beyond gorgeous on you! And I looove the mirror you found. Since I'm decorating my new place at the moment too, it's fun seeing what you do with yours and the ideas you come up with!

And your glasses are awesome! I need a new pair, but I'm not sure what style to go with. My husband randomly said "I don't like your glasses" the other day, and since I wear them 90% of the time, I should probably get something he likes, too! :P

I was just going to say, what's up with you not smiling in ANY of the pics in this post! I coudl understand the first pic where you were showing off you red lip... But then I was wondering what's up! lol Love the glasses, the red lip and the bubbly! A very thoughtful and beautifully presented gift indeed. Looking forward to seeing this mirror DIY post, you always come up with great things!

You seriously look incredible with red lips, Caitlin - love love! :)

HailesHeartsFashion said...

I now fancy a glass of Champagne :) also, you can never put too much red lip stick on, better than it fading!

Cute blog, I am now following you

I also have some hipsterish glasses, but honestly they are the most comfortable frame to wear all day on your face! My boyfriend always jokes about my "hipster glasses" and that I am a "closet hipster" but I just love my glasses! They look great on you & really suit you!

Love these photos! Especially the gorgoues champagne and flowers collage. Those hipster glasses suit you! I had no idea they did actual prescription, proper hipster glasses haha!!

Jax said...

Champagne is a great gift for friends at their milestones! Glad you enjoyed the bubblyy hahaha

Love the glasses!!! They are super cute. I recently bought a super expensive pair of Prada glasses that I refuse to wear b/c I hate glasses. My contacts kill my eyes, but I still can't bring myself to wear the glasses. :( lol

Happy New Week to you too!!

Johanna said...

That mirror is so awesome. I've seen it a few places and now I know where to get it. Love!

SG Angela said...

I recently discovered how red lipstick makes me look like an entirely different person. more old world glam. : )

Mandy @ In the Fashion Lane said...

You look fab in red, I love that you had a hipster disclaimer and champagne to celebrate is always a fun plus! Cannot wait to see your next DIY! That mirror is awesome!

bananas. said...

so many people annoy me with their "hipster" glasses...partly because a) i know they don't really need them and b) they don't fit their personality or style whatsoever.

that said, i really like those thatchers on you. they're perfectly fitting without being overly hipster or obnoxious.

Allison Patricia said...

I love red lips and have been trying them myself as well. I always feel like theyre going everywhere and they fade so fast! any tips on making it last???

Love, love, LOVE the first photo! Red lips deff suit you. I don't think I ever had champagne, need to change this asap. "Mini Penthouse", too cute. Love the mirror, not the price. & I am sure whatever you DIY mirror is, its way better. Freakin' love your "hipster" glasses. I wanna pair now.

Megan said...

love those glasses.

and red lips look good on you!

and im a little taken aback by the fact that sarmin (above) has never had champagne. if i had the money id fly to her place with a bottle and enjoy it with her. but im poor.

June said...

Nice post! I like those glasses on you :) All settled in the new place with your boy?

You look amazing in those glasses! Good selection for sure :) It's super sweet that your friends sent you that champagne! I love it when friends do such sweet things, especially when they're unexpected. I'm so happy for you guys and your new love nest!
