New Addition: Lucite Love

Sorry I missed you yesterday. As we're getting ready to go to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for the Spring 2012 lines, things are getting a little crazy trying to prepare for that, get the magazine to press by Friday, and take care of all our other office to-do's. My apologies, darlings.
Moving on. As a post-grad with an eye for design, my new home is coming together slowly but surely. Most of the pieces in my home are hand-me-downs or second-hand refurbished items I've tackled as a DIY. However, I'm keen on adding tiny personal touches here and there (as my budget grows) that exude my taste. One of the first things I knew I wanted to add was a lucite chair to my vanity (who's chair needed replacing anyway).

Given, most of the images above use a lucite chair as a desk chair, but that doesn't seem very cozy to work in now does it? But I'm still so drawn to lucite, (and perhaps a little late to the train on this) and thought one would work perfectly at my vanity. It's fresh and modern without being too in-your-face, and works well with both timeless and trendy pieces. I found this one for what is an absolute steal on eBay (seriously, go check it out) and, after some encouragement and validation that it was a must have from my other half, bought it right up for said vanity.

It should be arriving any day now. Next on the home to-do: split my spare bedroom into an office/guest room!

Can I just say that if you don't take 100000+ photos from Fashion Week I will personally die?

Seriously. The level of jealousy I have right now is like...through tha roof.
