Outfit Of The Yesterday (Denver Home & Garden Show)

 ♫:Sprawl II – Arcade Fire x Soulwax

The Great Remodel of 2011 was put on hiatus over the winter for a few different reasons, mainly being the snowy weather, travel, the holidays, and blah-bah-blah-busy crap. But now that the weather is warming up, we have been itching to get back into it.

Well. I’ve been itching to get back into it.  Husband just wants a functioning bathroom or two, he says. Whatever. It’s hard being married to someone so high maintenance.
So! Our official remodel schedule for this year is still pretty big. We need to:
  1. Finish two of our three bathrooms (one being our on-suite, which is getting a total gut and revamp)
  2. Figure out what the heck to do with those ugly, unfinished stairs
  3. Draw up some ideas for our broken main floor fireplace to make it both functional and pretty
  4. And get some furniture and furnishings.
  5. I mean any furniture and furnishings.
  6. Cuz we have none.
So we went to the Denver Home and Garden show! And found nothing.  Except a map that did nothing to tell us where the buried treasure was even though we looked really hard:
And some total (cute) weirdo in a yellow shirt warmin’ his backside on the fire pit. Jackpot!

This is what I wore:

Blazer: Zara (similar here) (similar here) (similar at Forever 21)
Tank: American Eagle Outfitters (similar at Forever 21 in “olive”)
Belt: The Limited (similar here) (similar here for $11)
Pants: GAP, old (similar by All Saints) (similar for under $30
Necklace: Forever 21, old (similar here) (love this, too)
Ring: Yves Saint Laurent Arty in Aqua (buy it here) (similar here for under $100) (another option under $100)
Watch: Michael Kors Oversized Rosegold Watch (buy it here) (similar by Fossil)
Shoes: J Crew Savina Studded Sandals (buy them here) (similar by Nine West) (similar under $100)
Bag: Marc Jacobs Cooper in Nude (buy it here) (similar by Fossil) (similar by Rebecca Minkoff) (similar at F21)

    oh my God, I was laughing so hard at your Home show experience!! It sounds just like when my husband and I go!  I just walk by all the shouting vendors looking straight ahead while by husband is trying to get me over to the shouters booth!  I don't even know why I subject myself to it cause I am always so uncomfortable.  We have a home show this weekend to go to in fact.  I can hear the shouts already!! hehe

    Love the white blazer over the neutrals with the turquoise accents!  I feel you on the house remodel stuff. Although I'd trade you tupperware wardrobe storage for the 1979 avocado green linoleum currently *gracing* our kitchen and dining area.  Our last home show experience was pretty much exactly as you've described, too. :-S  May sit those out in the future.

    a)  I am so jealous of all the reno you guys get to do, perverse though that may seem.  As an apartment dweller who watches design shows, I am DYING to personalize my space but really, I can't.  Looking forward to seeing what you do!

    b)  That's the best take on all-neutrals I've seen in a while!  I like that you used cream/brown/army green colors instead of the beige on beige thing.  Looks lively but sophisticated.

    You look awesome and stylish. Loved your outfit and necklace!

    Great look! Love the blazer and your necklace!

    You are too funny and good luck with you quest for new furniture. Have you thought of West Elm, I love their stuff. 
    Well, even if the show wasn't too successful to find new furniture, you at least looked fabulous. Happy Weekend.

    Ack! The people at the show sounded like a nightmare! Reminds me of the carts at the mall when people try to get your attention. I actually had a salesman run after me and say, "You dropped something!" which obviously got my attention…then he basically said, "No you didn't, but let me tell you about my product"  ?!?!? My heart was racing with anger!

    Cute outfit! Love the pop of neon. I am seeing a lot of neon yellow lately…hoping to find myself my own pop of neon. A belt is a great way to do it!

  • Susan Leiser

    Great story, Chloe. I can't believe you ditched your old furniture BEFORE purchasing new furniture. OMG. That's giving me hives just thinkin' about it.

  • Mary Ann

    You always have such fabulous blazers! (love the necklace, too!)

  • TheKimmieChronicles

    Ha! I had no idea a home show would be so daunting and that overly pushy salespeople still exist. True story: a few months ago the Hubby was warming his tush on an outdoor fire pit at one of our local shopping centers! It must be a tall-guy-freezing-his-butt-off kind of thing. :) Love the outfit! Can't go wrong with neutrals and texture.

  • Rachel D

    Cute shoes! Almost as cute as your studded Valentino's!

    Hilarity – fairly certain you were the best dressed person there :)
