Modcloth sale!

Modcloth is in the midst of a huge sale right now.  Tons of cute clothing, accessories, and home stuff at great prices.  I’ve heard mixed reviews about the quality of their clothes, but decided to give them a try starting with the sale items (I’ve persued their site a lot but never purchased anything until yesterday).  I was in a very indecisive state of mind, so justified buying 4 dresses by saying it is in the name of research so I can share my findings with other potential customers!  lol!

I will follow up with a review of my purchases, but check out their merchandise (sale and regular price) before hot items sell out!

Does anyone have any thoughts or feedback on Modcloth merchandise that you’d like to share?  Please let me know – I’d really appreciate your comments!

Small bedroom? No problem with vinyl stick-on headboards!

A few weeks ago, my sister (who lives at home) told me she ordered a stick-on headboard for her queen-sized bed.  It sounded kind of cheesy to me, to be honest.  The only vinyl appliques I could think of were those of the child-like variety, such as princess castles, trees with cute little birds, etc…something you’d find in a nursery or kid’s room. 

On my next visit home, I took a peek at her room and upon first glance, thought she bought a new (real) headboard.  It looked pretty good!  And for a recent college grad still living on a budget, 30 bucks to spruce up an otherwise boring bed is a pretty good deal.

Of course, she scored on Etsy…here’s a picture of the “headboard” from seller artwallproject’s site:

I wish I knew about this before buying bedroom furniture for our guest bedroom…that room’s relatively small and a sticker headboard could’ve created the illusion of a real one without sacrificing space. 
I’ll have to take a picture of my sister’s room and post it up to show the results!

Anthropologie in-store crafting sessions!

Throughout the month of December, select Anthropologie stores will host special crafting sessions and/or reading hours for children.  Hopefully they’ll teach shoppers how to create some of those amazing displays they showcase!

All the stores around LA look like they’ll be hosting these events, lucky for me!  The complete list can be found on their Facebook event page, located here.

Who can pass up free crafting lessons and babysitting?!

LA Sample Sale – Rock Scissor Paper!

Rock Scissor Paper Studio sells a variety of cute, modern stationery with vintage flair to stores like Anthropolgie, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, and smaller boutiques.  Fortunately, they’re located in Los Angeles, and even better, their sample sale taking place this Sunday in the San Fernando valley is close to my house!

I’ve seen a lot of their merchandise in the stores above, and always forced myself from not buying too much of it since I already have a ton of stationery at home that I find too cute to use. 

Take advantage of this offer, LA denizens!!!
