if you follow me on instagram, you probably know how flipping excited i was to be part of the blogher '13 conference fashion show on saturday!
thanks to giftbar, we were outfitted with amazing looks from local designers and boutiques, and thanks to the Ulta beauty team, our hair and makeup looked fabulous!
i can't wait to see the professional photos, but here are a few behind-the-scenes shots i snapped:
Ulta beauty exert, Sam, and i!
and now, i need your help!
we are trying to decide between two fabrics to upholster our new parsons table (for diy tutorial click here). both are faux animal skin vinyl from JoAnn on sale for $20/yd: one is a black crocodile (here) and the other is a black and yellow/beige python (here). vinyl is a great choice for recovering furniture on a budget because it mimics the look of and durability of leather, for a fraction of the price.
JoAnn is quickly becoming a favorite for affordable, stylish fabric for our DIY projects. the faux croc suede fabric that we used to reupholster chair seats (here) was also from JoAnn.
both were unavailable in store, so we bought 3 yards of each so we could make a final decision in person.
what do you think? i love the python, but i was hoping for more black + white and i'm not sure i'm digging the buttery yellow.
regardless, we're going to have lots of extra fabric that i'll have find something fun to do with.
