a little rock-n-roll retail therapy

I can't believe how much I missed pictures!  Are we not so spoiled with our instant gratification?  I know I am.  Five bucks paid to Goggle and I'm back with a little eye candy for ya.

I rarely post about fashion, but I am so loving some of the things Garnet Hill is currently offering I just had to share.  I love this look...but really I think I love this model and this braid.  (sidenote:  are you typically drawn to models with your hair color?  just curious)

These boots are so sexy and refined.

I start living in boots and dresses as soon as there is the first slight chill.  Yes, this look is
how I define rock-n-roll these days.  You can't much hotter than her.

And this coat!  Love it.  Okay, what about this coat with a white J Crew tee and black
leather pants.  I don't care if leather pants are in or out (nor do I know), but wouldn't that outfit be cool?

This piece of art is rockin, I think.  Remember this from Atlanta Home & Lifestyles Christmas House last year?  My client and I spied this at Stanton this week.  It was 1,200...now 199!  I don't see this working in many rooms...but it is incredible.

These are the bentwoods we got for her breakfast nook--I love the use of black metal here instead of wood.  Adds a little spice to their kitchen.

It's slowly coming together (capiz pendant and window treatments to be completed soon)  And we'll change the centerpiece...:)

I think this black moulding is really sexy.

I am loving our new bar downstairs!  We paired black iron vintage sconces with two deals
from Ballard's Backroom (the stools and mirror).  The stools got four coats of white dove (leftover trim paint--semi-gloss).  I told Chris he needs to have the guys over and play cards.  He kinda laughed at me. I guess it isn't quite manly, is it?  (letters from Hobby Lobby)

For another texture, I love some black or cream felt pillows in a room.  Aren't these pretty?  (from PB Teen)

I love this white capiz table lamp, too.  Wouldn't this be nice as a desk lamp or maybe a countertop in a kitchen?  Somewhere unexpected.

And Anthro is rocking it out with this coffee table.  How unique!

And maybe this mirror...

In this bathroom instead of this white one (I LOVE this simple skirt.  When I rented a home in Little Five Points in my '20s I cut my green silk Anthro skirt and velcroed it to my sink!)

And these shades....somewhere!!

And I love these Old Schools from Emerson Made.  Bell bottoms are so rock-and-roll to me.  But I have always been a little on the hippie side.  Here is evidence below:

I pick up the boys from Mom's Morning Out and Wyatt has his entire lunch left.  I guess I can't blame a two year-old for not wanting sugar snap peas, organic carrots in a bamboo bowl.  Liam said, "Mom, why can't we get red boxes like Luca gets (read Happy Meal)."  Sorry, boys.

Thanks for hanging with this scattered post--Julie


  1. Hi-
    I was wondering where the cute little lamp shades can be purchased? They are darling and so unique. Your little boys face with that bowl of veggies is priceless!!!

  2. OH love that first pic with the drapey cardigan... so cute! Funny you say that about the models... I always notice the ones with brunette hair first... funny.... Awesome bentwood chair! Glad you got your pics back!

  3. I love the mirror over your bar, Julie. And I was having the same photo problem.

  4. You are really trying to push those "sugar snap peas, organic carrots" to a boy? Yuck. Well in might be OK with some chips.

  5. I never thought about it before, but I'm totally drawn to the brunette models! How interesting.

    I don't know if I've said this already, forgive me if I have, but I grew up in Alpharetta. It's nice to read your blog and feel at home. =)

  6. Julie dear, your blog lazy friend here...

    But you always have tons of good energy and eye candy for us! Love, no really LOVE that first outfit. All of it (and I am not even blonde!)

    The last image is priceless! Whyatt is too adorable for words, and his Mama gets 5 stars for making the veggies look extra hip and fun!

    Happy weekend to you.

    ox, Mon

  7. I love your scattered posts! Love the chairs and how that area is coming along. The bar area looks great too. Plus - I would love a pair of those boots! Have a great weekend.

  8. Great eye candy! Love the clothes and your bar and everything! Have a great weekend!

  9. Love those boots too! How funny is that with the lunch...my eight year old says the same..."you never pack anything good in my lunch" which really means "why can't you pack me cupcakes like so and so get..."

  10. I'm so glad you mentioned Garnet Hill. I'm in need of some new sheets and have been racking my brain trying to think of the name of that catalog! It's been on the tip of my tongue for about a week, thanks!

    oh yea, the new bar looks great! would love to enjoy a cocktail or two there :)

  11. Where are the lamp shades from? I really like them. Love the new bar area!
