Living







Outfit Details:
Love Label striped top - c/o Very
skirt - vintage
vintage fishies necklace - gift from my mom
Seychelles Ampersand heels - c/o ModCloth
Crocus yellow tote - c/o L.K. Bennett
lipstick - MAC Dish It Up 

I've been talking about my move but haven't really shown you a peek at my apartment, yet! You still aren't getting much of a view with these pictures, save for the brick wall and the same vintage, shutter style dresser I've had since I moved to New York (thanks, mom!). I promise that once things are set up a little more, I'll do a little photo tour of the apartment. I'm pretty thrilled with the space; there are exposed brick walls in every room and I actually have space for my clothing! I stayed in my little, run down apartment for much longer than I wanted to in order to save up for a place I loved. When I first moved to Brooklyn, I didn't even have a closet and my room was the bigger one in the apartment, at 8x9 feet. I then moved to a place that had a couple of small closets but was actually a step down from my first place, only it was in a better neighborhood. Now, I am finally in a place that I can comfortably call a home. I love the apartment and the neighborhood (I'm still in Park Slope). It makes such a huge difference to actually like where I'm living. It only took five years!

  12. El look es genial, pero lo que más me gusta es el collar de peces vintage. Colecciono collares con pececitos desde que leí "Cien años de soledad" de García Márquez ¡es precioso!

  35. Okay, I have a question for you, maybe a couple:

    1. Where do you store all your clothes, shoes, and handbags that you get? Please tell me, so I can get the same organizing/storage system.
    2. CUTE Shoes! I guess that's not really a question
    3. What setting do you have your camera on?

    Love this post and photos.

  36. Sounds like your move went smoothly!! I struggled a lot when hunting for my first solo apartment and as perfect as I thought this place was when I first signed the lease, there's definitely something left to be desired. I am going to keep my fingers crossed that Seattle has just as beautiful places as New York with the exposed brick walls!!

    p.s. your outfit is ADORABLE. I love the stripes paired with the plaid!

    ReplyDelete
  37. The exposed brick walls are amazing, I'm excited to see more snippets of your place. Love how you mixed the stripes and plaid too... such a cute look, Keiko!

  44. It took me almost 5 years too! Was living in a teeeeeny tiny 4th floor walk up on the Upper East side for 4 1/2 years, and just made the plunge to Brooklyn (Ditmas Park). It's definitely a bit of a change, but my place is THREE times the size (with my own huge walk-in closet!) for the same price as my old shoebox on the UES. :-)

  83. I love exposed brick in houses. That is one goal I have (when I can afford a home) - is to find one with brick. Even just one wall haha
