From footwear to furniture...

I usually only post about the shoes I'm currently obsessed with, but nope. Not this time.

I assumed my next post would be wedding-related, but because I'm still mildly cracked out from jet lag, I'm gonna completely switch gears and show you the new furniture we're buying this week.

(Side note: It's OUTRAGEOUS that I'm not allowed to spend all of our wedding money on shoes/handbags, no?)



Couch to replace our sectional.

Chair to add to the mix, but in this celadon swatch:




Bookcase to go behind the couch, in a richer espresso color.




New dresser (with mirror) to replace the hand-me-down that's literally older than I am.



Of course, all of this will require us to clean up our place and rearrange a few things... But it looks like I'm finally going to have a grown-up apartment! PEACE OUT, cheap post-college shit.

Who will come over and help me decorate?? Jessi, I'm talking to you.

Love your furniture pics. And your color palette definitely reflects some of (a lot of?) the stuff in my own home. You have great taste! Yay to graduating into adulthood!

Holy crap, I love your new couch! It looks so welcoming and comfy! And I'm green with envy over that bookcase. I want one of those! Does it come in a lighter color, like oak?

It must be so nice to ditch the hand-me-downs! I can't wait to start from scratch and pick all new furniture!

Can't wait to hear about the wedding!

Oooh, I LOVE that bookcase! But you're going to be a little sad to toss all your Ikea-caliber crap, aren't you? Yeah, I wouldn't be either.

Drooling over the mirror! Soooo glad you're back. Missed your snarky self! Hope the honeymoon was amazing!

Nilsa: Thanks!

Phil: This makes it hard for me to tell you... I'm having second thoughts about the couch... As for the bookcase, as far as I know, it only comes in Espresso.

Jessica Maria: Me too!!

Maris: I promise, I'm going to post about the wedding soon. :-)

Alexa, Ashley and Jenn: Apparently, the four of us have FABULOUS taste.

Stealthnerd: PEACE OUT Ikea.

Rebecca: Good to be back!! Aw, I missed you guys.
