dreamin' of a DRESSING ROOM....

On of my favorite things to fantasize about is building my very own, Personal Dressing Room (PDR) slash Master Bathroom combination.  For now, lets just discuss the PDR.  I have been a pretty committed runner for about 15 years now and not one run is complete without my mind trailing off about winning the lottery and A: having my mom never work another day in her life, B: playing the Santa Claus of $cash$ with my good friends + family and C: having the most insane, jaw-dropping, gorgeous Master Closet/Dressing Room/Bathroom filled with equally insane shoes, handbags, accessories, clothes, etc. ever.  Call me materialistic.  It would be my vice.  Or should I say it would be encouraging my already (semi-starving at the time being) vice.

here are a few to fantasize about:

Long have a few girlfriends of mine called our routine of getting ready together, “Models Inc.” As in…”Missi, Chrissy, Sara – you guys should come over to my house and we’ll pop open a bottle of Pinot, throw on some Too $hort and Models Inc.”  It is a favorite part of life to play out for me, and here are a few inspirations and pieces I would put into my little pink, marble and crystal couture world….

  1. Yeah, I have wanted a PDR for years! A girl can really get to stylin' it up if there's room... In my dream home I have this with a beautiful vanity, plenty of room for shoes! I'd also like a partially screened in lanai, a Malm fireplace in the living room and a BIG lush back yard.

    P.S. LOVE the soundtrack!!!

  3. That room with a zebra rug is perfect! I can imagine walking into such a wonderful dressing room and just feel the cozy atmosphere delve in. The vintage mantle is amazing! Such works of the mind are timeless. These ideas are suitable for any setting, even for those who are thinking of cabinets NJ for their homes, I should say. Great post.
