Friday's Fancies::Blog Swap Edition

This has possibly been one of my most favorite Friday's Fancies to prep for yet!  {AV} paired me with Eileen from A Creative Day for a blog swap this fine Friday.  She could not have picked a more perfect partner for me.  I have nothing but amazing things to say about Eileen and had a blast working with her throughout the week. She is so sweet and let's not forget, talented. Get on over to her blog today!

Hey Everyone! I'm Eileen from A Creative Day and I'm so excited to be over here at A Simple Affair for Friday's Fancies Swap Week! Carly is such a sweetheart, isn't she? I've LOVED working with her the past couple of weeks, and she is fast becoming one of my blogging bff's :-)


This week of Friday's Fancies was wide open for us to decide what we wanted to post about, so Carly and I decided to take two of our latest obsessions... these shoes and this pendant, and each design looks around them.  So fun, right?
gold 

































For my outfit, I chose to pull pieces that would still let the shoes be the star of the show, which they totally are. Such rockstars, don't you agree?!
This is my dream foyer design. Graphic wallpaper, a rosewood console, and antique rug mixed with my favorite books and fun accessories from Furbish feel sophisticated and still relaxed.

Thanks so much for having me over Carly, much love to you all! Make sure you head over to my blog to see Carly's looks, you don't want to miss them :-)
