Color Blocking 

This is a trend that really started popping up the first of the year... Remember Gucci totally kicking things off with their spring/summer collection?!

I was a fan back in the 80's (ok so maybe my mom was since she was still dressing me in the 80's) I was a fan this summer and plan to keep my fall full of colour and block away!

Color blocking for the kiddo's in your life!

And your tootsies

1, 2, 3, 4

So are you planning to take this trend into your fall wardrobe as well?!

Do I Dare???

This is one DIY that literally makes me sick to my stomach with fear of a big ole' disastrous mess!

As you know I am working on my DC home office (super excited) and I can picture exactly how I would like the finished product to look.  However, one key piece I am lusting for is NO WHERE to be found. 
I have been on the hunt for an 8 x 10 pink (preferably hot pink) chevron rug. 
The darling Cassandra of Coco + Kelley and Rue Mag directed me to the most perfect rug but, had to pump the breaks when I saw the size.

I've continued the hunt today but, now officially think I have bumped my head and lost my mind because I am actually considering taking matters into my own hands and making the rug!?

diy via
Am I crazy to take on this challenge?  Have I completely lost it?
Please tell me my dear DC readers you know exactly where I can find one darling pink chevron rug?!

Quote Of The Week

"Take chances, take a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up and with whom, it always ends up just the way it should be. Your mistakes make you who you are. You learn and grow with each choice you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel, always.
Be you, and be okay with it."  

Make it a great week loves...

Sunday Sanctuary

It has been a weekend full of accomplishments!
I took full advantage of Irene and spent my days indoors making things happen!
Major progress on my home office...I even picked up a few goodies for my guest room and bathroom!  I have amazing parents and a big thank you goes to them for ALL their help this weekend!!

My closet is my next project...I have started the "out with the old in with the new" process but, still want to completely gut and install new shelving and definitely need some serious organization for my shoes!

Here are few closets that inspire me...

Some of you may recognize this fab space belonging to Jen Ramos

So did you have a great weekend? 
Were you able to make a few accomplishments of your own?

I hope everyone stayed safe during Irene and hopefully there was not too much damaged in your area!

Cheers to the Weekend...

It's been a long week...I finally am caught up from vaca (even while battling a nasty cold) and have even made MAJOR progress setting up my new home office!! GO ME!

My weekend will consist of making even more headway on my office, reorganizing my closet (out with the old-in with the new) and working furiously on DC prints so we can get this shop launched!!

If you follow DC on FB, you know that I am obsessed with hurricane's and in my next life I WILL be a meteorologist so yes, there will be serious Irene tracking going on at Casa Ashley as well.

Come Sunday...I plan to cheers my accomplishments with this tasty lil' treat!

Wishing you a weekend filled with your own accomplishments!
Cheers my darlings!
