  1. Hmm.. I think I'm leaning towards "vintage vixen" as my first choice.. with "the classic" being 2nd. and "zig zag zen" with the red pumps being my 3rd choice.. although.. the truth of the matter is--you'll look wonderful in any of them. :-)

  2. I vote two of the same: vintage vixen, zig zag, and princess!

  3. My three picks:
    1st The Fashionista
    2nd Zig-Zag Zen
    3rd Cute and Cozy

    Have fun :)

  4. vintage vixen, fashionista or classic. But all are great!

  5. Vintage Vixen and Classic are so cute! I am so glad I came across this blog! I googled "how to decorate with cork boards" and somehow your blog popped up, haha. But I'm so glad it did because you have such wonderful ideas! And , hey, if I save $$ my husband is a happy guy! Looking forward to more cute ideas:) Thanks!

  6. Vintage Vixen or Made about Plaid.

    Definitely not the ribbons and bows, unless something happened to all the other options.

  7. I like the fashionista and I really do like the country girl option . . . I have a dinner party at 3rd and Hollywood next Friday--I'm coming over to raid. :)

  8. Hey Lindsey!

    The design of your necklace and earrings look like my girlfriend's collection. She's also making her own accessories. I remember when I bought brass rods for our bed, she also came with me to our trusted brass tubing supplier just to buy brass for her necklace.
