Just Get Me A Really Big Closet

Fast Fashionista turns three today!

First of all, thank you to all of my readers and supporters. You all mean the world to me. I love that my little hobby/labor of love has been a place for you to come to. Be it fashion or food or whatever else I'm glad you're here for the ride. I thought this would be the perfect time to share my dressing room with you.

 Before I say anything else let me take you to a cold November day when we were buying our house. "Babe I found your closet" he says after the inspection. Mk knew while we were looking that I needed two things 1) a dressing room and 2) a huge bathtub. I had plans of making one of our bedrooms into my closet. But with MK's idea we decided to roll with it and do the attic. Once we got our ducks in a row, my sweet Dad built stairs to the attic in one of our small rooms, and construction started in August of last year. I know you're going to ask so yes, I very much will miss the pink room with butterfly border.

Some of these are Iphone photos so bare with me.


So since this was just an attic there needed to be windows. It was amazing to watch our construction team put them in! One day there were no windows and just like that there were.


The contractors were in and out in two weeks and MK and I are all about DIY and we painted and painted and painted...and then painted more.

Not only did my sweet Dad build the steps he also helped MK while he put the floor down. I helped some too!


The floor was done and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. It was time to start building wardrobes. Before we started weddings and every free second we had it was building the wardrobes.


Once the wardrobes were done it was all about the island assembly. Thank goodness for this man of mine because I would not have had the patience or building smarts for that matter. Perla was always there to assist. 


Building three chandeliers took up a lot of time but we got it done.


It took three months to finish the closet and I was in by the end of October. I wanted to get some final details complete before posting it online. Here are pictures we just took yesterday. Let me know what you think?

I'm so happy to be able to share this with you. I want to take a quick second and thank my Husband for putting so much time and effort into this project all to make me happy. I lucked out that for sure. Thank you MK!

On The Job

Last week was really weird. Also very busy. I thought I would share some of my very on the go looks and a little of what I look like on the job. It's all about finding a good pair of shoes! And of course cozy sweaters. Isn't Fall amazing?

Have a wonderful Monday, hope there is a glass of vino at the end of it.


More Is More

...and less is a bore right? That's what Iris Apfel says and she is basically my idol so I'm going with it.

It's no secret that I love my Target stops. It's so therapeutic to grab a Starbucks and float around buying things you don't need. That was not the case when I saw this almost perfect fall vest. I was in love! But it needed something...

I mentioned in pervious posts that my Mom is a costume designer/seamstress by trade, so after texting a pic of these vests to my bestie, telling her she needed them too, Mom was my obvious next call.

Me: Mom I need ostrich feathers.

Mom: Do you think I just have those laying around?

Me: Yes. I desperately need them for a vest.

Mom: I have them. Stop here.

 Off to my Mom's work I went where she totally saved the day by adding my feathers. I mean how cute is she? Look at that plan of attack in her eyes! I've always felt very lucky to have a Mom who is always adding a little more sparkle to my life.


The moral of this story is that nothing has to stay the way it is. Always look for a way to make something more even if just slightly.

Happy Labor Day!

I hope it greets you with a day of relaxing and a drink in your hand.
