Ikea. In Style.

November 16, 2009

 This weekend I shimmied into a sequined and lacy little black dress and the boyfriend donned his best black suit . . . and we went to Ikea.  Yes, we’re just that classy.

Doesn't everyone dress up for rug shopping at Ikea?

Oops! You're not supposed to open unbought boxes to peek inside . . .

Oh wait, we’re not that classy.  But doesn’t the suited-up boyfriend fit right into the Ikea warehouse?

The candlestick he's holding just adds some bling to his outfit.

 Ok, ok.  Enough funny business.  Only I would want to go to Ikea en route to a wedding.  Don’t laugh – it’s worth it to avoid making a separate trip in DC traffic!  And I had to get some shelves so I could do this:

Details to follow.  And if you’re curious?  I did not wear those flip-flops to the wedding.  I donned some killer 4-inch heels that destroyed my feet.  No pain, no gain, right?

    You crack me up! I hope you had as much fun at our wedding as you did at Ikea ;-)

    Can’t wait to see what you finally did with that wall. And don’t suppose I could invite you over sometime soon (aka when the boxes are emptied) for some design advice (and wine of course)?
