These are definitely the areas that have come along the most – what you don't see is the pile of crap sitting on the other side. I also turned the actual bedroom in this apartment into my office/studio and it's still a hot mess. My bed is on the other side of the sofa, still totally spartan, and I'm waiting on a shelf unit that takes 10-12 weeks to make to divide the room. And we're gonna go very very dark on the wall that the sofa is against. It's going to get super moody in here, and I'm looking forward to that. I'm still hunting for the right lounge chairs and tiny bedside tables that can actually fit in the space. Plenty of work to be done, but that's the fun of it.
On a side note, one of my favorite online retailers is doing a little something different this Black Friday. Everlane will be investing all of the profits from Black Friday sales into making the lives of their factory workers better. They're starting small and focusing on the factory that makes their silks and button downs (of which I have lost count of how many I own...). I'm eager to see where they will go with this and what kind of tangible change this will mean for the factory. If you haven't checked out their new arrivals, I'm most excited about the silk camisole – a girl can never have too many, as well as the stationery because a hand-written note in the mail goes a long way.
Ok last bit of cheesiness before I sign off – thank YOU for still coming to this little blog of mine. I know my posts are irregular and it's gone pretty silent compared to past years, but I'm resolving to work on that. I realized I've been shooting a lot less personal work and I don't want to lose that or stop posting here. Now... onto Turkey (or more likely, Chinese food with my parents)!
