Baby Got Black

The name alone made me fall in love with this mascara. “Baby Got Black”. But it was the built in mirror on the side and light in the cap that sold me. I buy and use a lot of mascaras. I admit, I haven’t been that loyal (I cop to any new mascara fad out there) until now.

I’m a smitten kitten. What pray tell, made me fall head over heels for this luscious lash treatment? Simple. I was at the gym yesterday and forgot to take off my makeup off. Ugh. And it was a pretty grueling sweat session. I kept mopping my face with my towel and rubbing my eyes. I knew I was going to leave with some major raccoon-face. When I was done, I slinked off the machine trying to avoid eye contact with my fellow gym goers. Imagine my surprise in the locker room when I looked into the mirror and I was completely smudge free! Huh… impressive. If this miraculous mascara can withstand my gym session, imagine how it will handle a regular day in Haute Houston, or a night out in a sweaty club (hey, if I do have to reapply, at least I have a mirror and a light at my disposal!)

Roman’s Top Ten Countdown # 7

Hi Everyone! This next one took me a while because I didn’t know what was worth the #7 spot. The Shi Shi Table (#049651; $859) is a mirrored gem of a table and is definitely a glamorous addition to your home.
The curved legs of the table is what makes this an outstanding piece, in my opinion.

Roman’s Top Ten Countdown # 8

This next post goes out to those of you who march to the beat of your own drum. The Drum Bookcase with Stand (#037428; $2249) comes in at #8 on my list and is from our new vendor, Halo. If you’re asking yourself if that name sounds familiar, it’s because it does. It’s the same vendor that brought you the Cushion Spindle Back Swedish Bench that you guys loved so much!

The shelves are 19″ deep and are big enough to fit Grammy and Oscar awards (I have so many that I had to buy two of these drums!), your design awards, or even your children’s most treasured trophies. The drum itself stands at a height of 4ft and 4 1/2 ft with the stand. This is definitely a piece that your friends would be envious of!

I *HEART* Emmas Design Blogg

Pssssssssssssssssssssssssssst! I have a little secret I have been guarding very carefully. It’s my borderline obsession with Emmas Design Blogg. I love Scandinavian design and white walls, muted palettes, pops of unexpected color, wood floors, gray and brown accents. (I lived for a year in Stockholm and to this day I want to move back. Jag alskar Sverige!) I used to save the photos she posted in my inspiration file but then I realized that I was saving basically every photo. Each day I pour over her blog to drool over some other perfectly lit airy space that could be a part of my ideal dream flat.
And then I added her blog to my blogroll of faves on my personal blog. But no one except my Mom and Dad read that. So now I’m sharing with you. Shhhhhhhhhhhhh.

HF Weekly Obsession: Sitting Pretty

It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these, but for this piece it is absolutely necessary. We just got the Remington Lounge Chair in Bevan Lilac on our floor and… wow. I really like it. Like, really like it. It’s so pretty! I am a happy little blogger.

Remington Leather Lounge Chair in Bevan Lilac/Polished Nickel, $1879 @ High Fashion Home.
But… during their Undeniable Value sale (going through October 12th), this chair is $1504. Not bad, eh?

HF Weekly Obsession: For the Ladies

We’re adding another facet to our little midtown store: boutique. The entire first floor has been transformed with the arrival of a few very cool and comfortable lines of woman’s clothing. We’ve even added a fitting room (a project that was tackled exceptionally by Cynthia, our store’s displayer)!
We’re slowly bringing in new lines of tees, dresses, and pants for your shopping pleasure. 

I love these easy, simple dresses from Dolan. I don’t care how cute something is if it isn’t comfy, but these feel as good as they look. We’ve got this dress in purple and a funky tie-dye.

Woman cannot live in dresses alone. On weekends, hoodies are key, and one with interesting details keeps you from that rolled-out-of-bed look (even if you did just roll out of bed). Try one from Splendid, the masters of comfort. We’ve got the one above in sunny yellow!

I think these satin harem pants from Maggie Ward are so cool. They’re as light as air, so when you pair them with dressy heels and a simple top, you’ll feel just like Lady Gaga (you know, sans pants).

There are only so many ways you can do a white tee, but I love the slouchy pocket on this one from K. Allyn. It’s a white tee, but fashionized. Get yours here.
