There’s something so irresistible about the combination of powder pink with black and white stripes – to me, it epitomizes retro Parisian chic more than anything (and as you can tell, I’m obsessed with all things Parisian-inspired lately). I’ve been sadly lacking in the blush department as of late though, mostly because all of my clothes are apparently hidden – I used to wear these Shoppalu pants all the time (cases 1, 2 and 3) but as is often the case in tiny apartments with poorly planned floor/closet plans, I can only ever access about 8% of my clothes, and these pants were only finally uncovered this weekend after a major cleaning haul. 
I’ve decided the only thing to do is either find an apartment with another room or with my boyfriend’s go-ahead (slash potentially if I absolutely need to without consent), I may start to convert the living room and dining room into a boutique of sorts. You know, have my favourite heels lined along the bookshelves, some bags as wall accessories, stacked sweaters as bookends…nothing he could possibly object to, right?
But seriously, if anyone has any small apartment wardrobe tips, I’m all ears! I could seriously use the help. In the meantime, I’m trying to steal some tips from my girl Jen, who’s been extolling the virtues of buy-less-choose-well wisdom over at Her Waise Choice – I’m definitely overdue for a major closet clean out and maybe some more caution as to what I bring into our little space (tear).
On another less stress-inducing note (in fact, it’s something that brings about the exact opposite of stress!), if you’re in the Greater Vancouver area, be sure to enter my YYoga giveaway that launched yesterday! It’s only running until this Friday so get your entries in while you can! Happy Tuesday everyone πŸ™‚

    I hear you on small apartment closets… in fact, I've already commandeered both the closets in our house and my boyfriend's clothes have to go in a dresser and under the bed – whoops!

    I wrote this post: http://www.alison-elle.com/2011/02/tiny-closets-organization-101.html a super long time ago but I still use all of these organization systems today and they work for me.

    I'm having the same problem when it comes to closet space – I have none! My boyfriend uses up maybe… 1/7th of the closet? It's terrible, I have no room for anything, and it's always a pain to pull stuff out (or hang anything back in!!). If you ever figure it out, please let me know your tips and tricks! As of now, I have none, other than my boy's suggestion to "put some shoes under the bed" which, obviously, defeats the purpose of having them displayed to oggle at. Sigh.

    Great look today Alexandra!

    Now that I've started playing with a little more red in my wardrobe colour palette, I think that this soft pink hue will be next on the agenda!! Your pants look so lovely with your black and white top and the black coat…and goodness knows, I have plenty of black pieces of my own to work with!! πŸ˜‰
    Our secret weapon for extra storage in our small, one-bedroom condo has been Ikea's "Pax" wardrobes; you can add a whole wall of floor-to-ceiling, customizable space with those babies!!

    I'm trying to do as Jen is doing as well. It's been 28 days since I've been shopping… not like I'm counting though! πŸ˜›

    This is such a chic outfit! Love the pattern mixing

    This look is so pretty! The pink is a nice change of pace from the dull colours we get stuck wearing at this time of year.

    I find that with tight closet space, I utilize other areas for storage of out of season items. I have a ton under my bed right now. If I didn't do this, I literally would have clothes exploding out when I open my closet.

    I'm surprised by how well you match those leopard print shoes with different outfits. I'm so intimated by animal prints because I've been told it's hard to make them 'work'. Your photos provide great inspiration.

    Love your courageous stylish mix of powder pink stripes and leopard pumps!

    The designer of my dress responded quickly to inquiries and the dress did arrive faster than expected. For me it was a bit long, even with heels, and I'm 5'5. If you are petite, expect to have to have it fitted.

    Choosing the right tenant is about the most important part of the tenancy. If you find the right tenant the tenancy will in essence manage itself. There are many tools these days to check a tenant's financial and credit history, see more
