Today's travels

Today I hung out with my mom and my little sister-AKA the best shopping partners I know. We had some errands to run but of course wanted to pick up a few things. Today we showed an amazing level of endurance-we left in the morning and came back around six!  Here are some pictures we snapped today!

We were in Mango-WIERD STORY: at lunch, we had all agreed that we really needed to put 'gold sequined tube top' on our shopping find list. We head into Mango a few minutes later only to find a glittering spread of metallic tube tops! That's pretty random, I mean a gold tube top?? Anyway it was a pleasant surprise-I believe you should have as many glittery pieces of clothing in your closet as possible.

Shopping is hard. We needed to sit. So we all took turns sitting in furry orange cup chairs at Barney's Co-Op while we tried things on. My mom is fanning out her Carolina Herrera skirt in a fairly ridiculous way-she wears it with a Banana Republic cardigan, thrifted jewelry, her Omega Seamaster watch, and ombre Prada peeptoes. I'll have to ask Carol what she was wearing, but I can tell you that her adorable sequined sneakers are from Juicy Couture. And me-besides the mongoloid expression on my face-a Dries van Noten dress I just got at a sale the other day and my Margiela sandal boots.

Better view of my outfit and a view of the back-my favorite part of the dress. I just realized I am surrounded by bras in this picture-was not shopping for bras, how futile would that be for Flatsy Patsy like me. Also, at some point I added a belt I got at Mango.


After our very long day I'm totally exhausted but we did dress up in some of our new things when we got home-and took pictures too. Results of dress up experimentation to come soon.

Everyone looks great!But your DVN dress abs amazing!Yesterday I went to Le Form boutique (Margiela, DVN, CDG and etc.) and I saw wonderful DVN dress. Looking at you I understand how DVN dresses works. That dress in tender violet colour with yellow flowers and silver sequins adoration.
Thank you!

Yep-I love people watching at North Park, even though its sort of a haul from where I live (Trophy Club!)...it is the true Dallas experience! :D I love the Mermaid Bar! (even though I am vegetarian and no longer eat their (whisper it) delicious chicken and tuna salads)

I like to go on record and say that I adore the sheer genius of putting Dries van Noten and Margiela together. Sweet, savy and smart.

I don't know where you're based but will you be heading to the Margiela 20th Anniversary event at the MoMu in Antwerp? It will have Margiela archives and exclusive pieces made just for the event.

Weird. I was in Barneys today, and I thought it might have been you that I saw in the shoe department!!! Well, after catching up on your blog, I see that I was correct! Where did you get the Dries dress? FortyFiveTen?

I just love love love that dress. It's such an fantastic pattern, and I think the belt makes it look even more interesting. Great buy (and on sale, too!).

And I have to say that when I first saw those boots (and the shorter version you have) I didn't really like them. You wear them well, though, and have completely changed my mind on them.

Great blog (and style)!

I hope you never stop wearing those boots; they're plain enough to transition flawlessly through seasons but still look fascinating on their own.

Photo of Katherine

Your mother is fabulous and looks so effortlessly elegant!

Photo of Hannah

Your boots are amazing.. I can't wait to see the results of the dress up!

You are so fortunate. It seems like you have a very lovely family.

I still want to know why your mom got rid of her boutique. You guys have an eye for beauty.

And now my nosy self wants to see inside your closet, and the rest of your decor. I just think it is fun to see.
I love what you have shown us so far. : )

i love your Dries dress, the sleeves are gorgeous

i cannot believe that you used the expression "mongoloid face" I know you're young, but be conscientious about what you're saying. or do you only have fashion on your mind? perhaps you are just a blank canvas in every way?

Photo of Christina

yeah... the word "mongoloid" kinda shocked me too. not all your readers are from texas..

but i don't want this (my first) comment to be completely negative - i am so addicted to your blog right now! been going through from the start. going to be disappointed when i reach current entries!
