Two of a Kind

The only upside to being stuck at home all day yesterday (aside from the 24-hour-pajama-party and watching Midnight in Paris) was that I got a head-start on scouring the internet for today’s Two of a Kind post. I think I’ve missed a few weeks of these, sorry about that. I mean, I’m not really, you’ll survive, but it feels good to be back in the saddle so to speak. It also feels good to be back at work today. There is only so much moping around, pallid with nausea that even I am capable of. In case you’re curious though, Fitz is an excellent nurse-slash-blanket. He literally laid on top of me the entire day and snoozed away.

I’ve tried to expand my search for Two of a Kind’s to more than just comparisons between clothing and accessories, because I’m noticing there are a lot of similarities between home decor items and fashion, too.

1. Dress / 2. Duvet Set / 3. Scarf / 4. Rug

If I never saw another Herve Leger bandage dress again it would be too soon, but the moment I saw this tonal blue one I knew I’d seen something similar with that Urban Outfitters duvet set. I really like the graduated ombre stripes of both, though you could never get away with wearing it in the same room as the other. And it goes without saying that I am head over heels in love with both that Kate Spade scarf and that wild, bright rug from CB2. The latter isn’t really my style (ie: it’s not stark white) but is the spitting image of the color and details of that scarf. It was a completely happy accident that I stumbled on it, but now I can’t stop staring.

  • Wow you’ve really surpassed yourself this time, perfect matches!
    Quite like the rug, and as you know I’m on a look out for one. Maybe a touch too bright though?
    PS have you invited Sam round to do your hoovering for you? xx
    Hope you’re feeling better chicadoo xx

  • I’ve just now realized that I think I need my rugs to be symmetrical. I’m not sure what direction to put it in. That being said, quite some nice pieces you found there. Perfect matches. I love this series; I’m glad to see it back. That scarf is a perfect pop of color. I can see it working from summer straight through fall.

  • Erin, you outdid yourself this time. Each pair is a perfect match. I bet one would blend right into the bedding when wearing that dress to bed ;) Love the scarf! Hope you are feeling better today!

  • Great matches, duckie! The bottom stripe on the duvet does remind me of NHS green, though …. :/
    Speaking of which – glad you’re feeling better! :D xoxo

    P.S. That Fitz is such a sweetheart. :)

  • Oh I loved Midnight in Paris and totally agree that fashion trends flow right into interiors many times. Hope you’re feeling better!

  • Another great round of pairings. I don’t know how you do it. Hm, I’m thinking the rug would be a nice pop of color in an all white interior. Shake things up a bit. ;) Glad you’re feeling better, Erin.

  • I’m such a sucker for anything ombre. i couldnt agree more about the Herve Leger situation but that dress is VERY appealing. I wouldn’t mind the bedding either…the large scale stripes are kinda cool. I’m glad you are feeling better, puppies really are the best nurses. P.S. FItz is probably the cutest puppy name ever. Just sayin’ .

  • Super matches, you really are very good at this. I’m liking your extension into a broader product range. Oh to have the body to get into a Herve Leger dress :-(

    Glad you are feeling a little better x
