interiors / kira's boho bedroom makeover (in under $600!)

for kira's bridal shower gift, we had our guests pitch in to create her dream master bedroom. it was so much fun shopping for her and picking out things that we knew she would love. our funds weren't unlimited so we had to shop on a budget (though, let's face it, when are we not shopping on a budget). we started with the duvet cover from anthro- it was to die for and it was one sale for $70! score! then we went to target and got those awesome end tables, the art, the lamp, and some of the accessories. next was marshall's for all of those cute pillows. see below for the full list of where everything is from, and how we managed to makeover a bedroom in under $600!

fashion / vintage dress + green shades

this dress is possibly the luckiest vintage item i have ever found. when i studied abroad in london with kira we used to devour portobello road for hours on end. we stayed so long that we could never make it to the end of the road. we finally realized that we needed to start from the bottom up. we took the metro a couple of stops down, and found the mecca that is at the end of portobello (not quite as picturesque as the first few blocks, but wayyyy more affordable). that's where i found this dress that has accompanied me to some major life events. like my interview at anthro (that i was late for an didn't get the job because of it- i'll never learn). i love it so much. 

i paired my (old) teal t-straps (seychelles from anthro), my gold bow headband (from anthro), bright blue earrings (world market), and green warby parker sunglasses.
