What my trip to Austin yielded..

Pretty amazing stuff!! I think I'll be going back with my friends sometime this year for another shopping trip.

Somone commented asking if I had been to Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds-yes, I did go with my mom and we were mesmerized by their endless collection of costume jewelry-I've been trying to find some animal brooches and they had like an entire zoo of animal brooches so I brought a few home.

The necklace is so sparkly and over the top-when I've worn it I've noticed people's eyes go straight to my neck-it's hard to miss.

Style Station was a random boutique off the side of the highway that had vast quanities of cowboy boots, Levi's, and some vintage clothing. I think my mom and my grandpa and I are going to go look at boots there sometime next week.

:) Excited to wear my new things.

Hi. You have a lot of fans here from the Philippines. I love gold jewelry too and love stacking them together like you do. Can you take a close photo of your gold watch with the gold bracelets? Thanks!

Absolutely amazing finds! I love the black fur cape especially

Photo of richel

I really really love your blog. A lot. I tried doing my hair just like your second photo, but it didn't work on me. After seeing how you successfully mastered the look maybe I'll try again!

Would you like to exchange links? Because I'm just too in love with all of your looks.

Photo of Lol

please please please learn that less is more.

Wearing 75 layers of expensive designer pieces does not make you fashionable.

Photo of Love-Lee

You always have really cool ideas but you should really work on what fits you and what doesn't. Some of these outfits (#3, #4 & 5) are REALLY UNFLATTERING

Photo of anon

deleting comments doesn't make your style any better

Photo of eliza

Photo of Zoe

I think sometimes more is more! I like how you are so inventive with your style, so many people play it too safe! fashion should be fun, a bit of irony makes every outfit more interesting

Photo of Key

Do you really go to school with them? :O

I love those animal brooches! ...I collect animal jewelry indeed :-)

Photo of Tamar

How i long for the day when animals will start stripping the skin off humans and wear them as clothes - using loose terminology like '50's glam' and 'vintage' to describe a period where humans heads were stuck so far up their ass that they saw luxury in a product of animal cruelty - the more rare the animal, the better.
this is the year 2008, we are not idiots, fur is murder.

Photo of Poster Girl

Wow, you found some really beautiful pieces. So you made it to Lucy In Disguise With Diamonds! I could spend hours in there :) The shops on SoCo were my favorite when I went to Austin on vacation.

Photo of Linnea

My grandmother has the giraff! I think it looks exactly like yours! Strange, because I'm from Sweden.
