So, for a while now (seems like forever, but it's only been about 3 months), I've had to shift focus from fashion to home decor. Don't get me wrong, I LOOOOVE home decor. After I got past most of the furniture selection process and got over my commitment issues with that (ish), it's been smooth sailing. The loft is coming along nicely and I can envision what it will look like when it's all done.
The thing about moving into a new place -especially moving into a new place where you decide to sell all of your old stuff and start from scratch with new stuff - is that is takes so many resources in your life. Time, money, energy... all things that I don't have any excess to spare. So it feels an AWFUL lot like cheating on my wardrobe. And as much as I miss buying clothes, every single time I find a cute pair of jeans or shoes or a dress... I immediately calculate in my head the cost of those items. NOT just in terms of $ though, I'm talking opportunity cost. (Let the finance profession nerdiness begin.) I calculate what I would be giving up in home furnishings and decor to buy that dress or pair of shoes. So, as much as I want these Louboutins (so bad it hurts)... I need a dining room table. Sigh. And as my mom would most definitely remind me after reading this, please Lord - let these be my biggest problems today.
Here are more of the images from Pinterest that keep me inspired to focus on the loft for now. I'll post pictures of the new place soon!
