In what way(s) is your home your own “Fancy Tree House?”
Well, in a way it’s my own little secret clubhouse. I’m home during the day with my pup, and we listen to silly music and try on clothes a lot. I would imagine that tree houses are made for being silly and not much else.
Describe some of the accessories which adorn your home.
I just got a dinosaur planter from Plaid Pigeon on Etsy that I love. It’s so playful. I love my autobiographies and trinkets that remind me of some of the people that inspire me most (Goldie Hawn, Sandra Dee, Nancy Drew).
Much of your wardrobe eventually ends up for sale in your vintage store. Do you similarly rotate items in your home?
No, I don’t do as much home shopping as I do wardrobe shopping. If I kept all the clothes I bought, my loft would look like the scariest episode of “Hoarders” you’ve ever seen. I have to be sentimental somewhere. I guess that’s where home décor comes in.
One of Coury’s favorite films “Butterflies Are Free” (1972).
A rolling rack colorfully displays your wardrobe. Because your clothing is always visible, do you ever catch yourself dreaming up outﬁts?
All the time! I just meander over and start putting fabrics together and getting excited for the weekend’s activities!
Do you consider your home a ﬁnished product, or are you continually on the hunt for details / ways to enhance it?
Not at all. We’re just renting here so it’s all temporary. You’d better watch out for my craziness once we buy a house. I’ll be out home shopping every day!

Many of your pictures include your pooch — tell us about her!
She’s a Boston Terrier and she is the sweetest, smartest, bestest girlie around! She’s my little buddy all day.
