Both of these books I ordered off of Amazonand I bought them used for a fraction of the price! If you do this, I would recommend buying the versions in the best condition listed. The books will still be discounted, but when the vendors say "showing a few signs of use" they aren't lying. I was lucky that both of these books arrived on my doorstep looking crisp and clean and oh so pretty, just the way I was hoping! After having such a good experience with Yves Saint Laurent: Style and Yves Saint Laurent: Icons of Fashion Design, I definitely plan on ordering more books shortly.
I am taking decorating a little bit too seriously, considering I will only be occupying this apartment for a year (not sorry). I went up this weekend, though, just to pick up my keys, check out the space, and figure out what I'm working with. Good news, the space is a lot bigger than I remember from back in September when I signed the lease! I was thrilled by most aspects of the living situation, aside from the fact that my closet is only a foot wide by a foot deep. Thinking on my feet, I bought a night stand with some extra storage, and refurbished an old jewelry cabinet of my mother's with ample drawer space.
I am so excited to get up to school, finish moving in my belongings, and photograph the entire space for an apartment tour post! I wish I could do that today ladies, trust me, but unfortunately I am still in good ol' Pennsylvania, and Syracuse will just have to wait a little bit longer. Until then! Xoxo
