Cortona at Forest Park: Living Spaces for Fashionistas

For the record, I love my house. However, the architects definitely did not have a fashion-obsessed resident in mind. I mean, how am I supposed to fit all of my clothes, shoes, and purses into a shared closet that's the size of a. . .closet? Right now, my stuff is dispersed among 3 closets and a mega-wide dresser. Not sure what I'll do when Ruby's wardrobe expands beyond onesies and teensie pants. . .

The lucky new tenants at Cortona at Forest Park will not have this problem. I attended a Happy Hour event to preview their living spaces and could easily see myself lounging by the pool or taking a class in the top-notch fitness center. The lobby resembled an upscale lounge, complete with pool table, shuffleboard game, and beer on-tap. Chefs will be whipping up a storm in each unit's gourmet kitchen. But, my favorite part of the tour was dreaming about how I could make use of the enormous closets. I could actually organize my clothes and have a shoe rack in one place. Hmmm. . . I'm not planning to move anytime soon, but a girl can dream, right? Here are some pics:
The apartments had a nice mix of carpet and hardwood flooring.

Want to see the place up close, even just to picture yourself movin' on up? Cortona at Forest Park is hosting their Grand Opening at the annual ALIVE Magazine Hot List Party on 5/31/14. The party is going to be a blast with food tastings (yum) and creatively-flavored drinks from Pinnacle Vodka. (Have you ever tried cookie dough-flavored vodka? I know.) I'm super-excited because two of my personal faves, Retro 101 and Rung Boutique made the list as some of St. Louis' hottest shopping destinations. Another cool store that I reviewed last year, Artemis Shop, also received a nod! See the full list of winners right here. I was selected as a Hot List Blogger Host and will be giving away 2 general admission tickets to the party on Facebook. Hope to see you local stylistas there! :)
