a fancy bedroom feature


Last month I had the pleasure of having my bedroom and vintage collection featured in the San Francisco-based magazine Asterisk. The photos were taken by Jeremy Joven, the incredibly sweet founder and editor who certainly had his work cut out for him. I don't think he realized just how many things I have tucked in every corner of my apartment... my closets are literally bursting open! You can peek at the final result (including an interview) right here. They also featured me alongside some lovely fellow Bay Area bloggers here.


Wearing a 1960's shift dress I found at a vintage store in Santa Rosa.



I always have a rotating selection of dresses hanging on my door... partly because of space issues and partly because I love looking at them!


The heart-shaped frame contains a photo of my cute parents when they were about my age. My mom is making a goofy face... I learned from the best.

I collect oversized silk blouses with funny animal prints. How could I resist?



I have some pretty strange books in my collection... the sillier and weirder the better! Face Lifting By Exercise is one of many gems...







Some of my favorite shoes... from left to right: 1960's clear vintage heels, 1960's orange brocade heels, 1980's Ferragamos, silver sparkle mary-janes from Tic Tac Toes, and Chelsea Crew heels.

Three vintage purses. The gorgeous red velvet clutch is from Bohemian Bisoux Vintage, one of the loveliest Etsy shops ever.

This was an honor to look at!! Thank you for sharing, your space is amazing!! I bet its also gorgeous at night, all the colors coming out in different ways...

And aren't those hangers the best!? I swear they double/triple the amount of space in a closet and make every piece hang perfectly...love it

your clothes is soooo oh my god i have no words, and your rooom, speechless! I will never in my life have such amazing collection of clothes, or anything like this!

When you come to Cali, you oughta bring that white lace dress with the yellow bow sash so we can be matchy-matchy, though mine was wildly hacked by me and so not as pretty as yours, but even still I think it’ll be an awesome photo. Thank you for making me feel better about having such a massive wardrobe. (hee-hee). I enjoyed touring your room!

Jennifer said...

Hi guys! You know what i love about this room? That it looks real and not staged. It really is suited to what it seems like (because obviously i do not know you) your personality. :) Very cute. I am almost done with mine, and i'll post it. Maybe you can check it out.
