That empty apartment above just so happens to be my new home in Philadelphia and I'm so incredibly excited. I looked at all kinds of places, old and modern, some with fancy pools and gyms, but in the end I went with this charming old place. It was the first one I looked at (of course) and the built-in bookcases, hardwood floors, high ceilings and beautiful moulding all won me over. I can perfectly picture all of my belongings filling this place up. I can also picture cocktail parties and slumber parties. I don't know if Philadelphia will ever feel like home to me in the way that San Francisco does, but it sure will be a lot cozier in this apartment.
I've been much too distracted to take any outfit photos and I don't want to scare off any of my new acquaintances just yet with outfit documentation requests (ahem), so in the meantime these Instagram photos will have to do. You can follow me here if you like weird socks and cute animals.

Quickly becoming a local.
Um, they were $1 and I had to.
I was lucky to meet some wonderful girls during my first few days here.
Obviously I've been hunting for all the vintage stores... already found a few favorites.
