    Hi Nicole! I am a long time reader and I just had to comment on this post…first, congratulations on the article (you and the rug both look amazing…a pink chevron rug?! Yes please!) and second, oh your kitty cat! I love black cats (we actually have two) and I love that your kitty is in the picture looking so cute! :-)

    Congrats Nicole! I looooove Anthology and it’s so exciting to see you in there.

    I hafta say, I’m loving the intense contrast in this photo. The hints of blue in your tights & on your cat look pretty neat. Also the tips are of your hair looks pretty awesome with the light coming through. Have you ever thought of doing bleachy tips?

    love love love it

      Oh, there’s no bleach. That’s just the way the light is coming through.

    You look amazing *love that Ponte dress* and I just subscribed, Yay!

    Maybe I can convince hubby to get me a Madeline Weinrib rug for our 10 year anniversary next year :)

      We got ours for our 4th anniversary, so I’d say it would be excellent for a 10th.

    That’s awesome! Congrats! Off topic — Where did you get that elephant stool in the background of the pic? We just found out we are having baby girl (our first) and the theme in her nursery is going to be elephants!
