rachel roy on her influences

I want to hear about the women that inspire you. 

Mine are more personal than celebrities…my mother, my girlfriends, women I have worked with…

I would love to hear about who you look up to.

four floor lamps for under $200

A lot of New York city apartments don't have overhead lights…our new place included. 

So, you have to add where you can with floor lamps, table lamps, task lighting and may even sconces. 

For today here are four great floor lamps that won't break the bank.

Last week we discussed the beauty of the étagère, and it's possible use in our new apartment. And while I'm fairly sure that's what we will go with (since this is a rental) I would like to take a moment to discuss the étagère's larger and more permanent cousin….the wall-o-books. 

My girl Jamie has documented the art of the bookcase for years, and I often find myself pinning her "Bookcase of the Day" with sheer delight. A whole wall of books? The styling possibilities are endless. 

All white? 
Grouped by color? 
Spines in? 
Spines out? 

Don't even get me started of the accessories...

The most important of which is the ladder, my personal favorite and the key to channeling your inner Belle. 

But seriously, I would take any of these beauties.
