July 17, 2009


I have to say that I much prefer the bleak and dreary dustscapes of Texas to the urban sprawl of Tokyo...I always have.

My mom and I shot each other in Roanoke, just a minute or two away from home. 
We loved these funky chairs lined up in front of this restaurant. 


Wearing a J. Crew pleated bib front shirt, J. Crew bracelets, shiny brocade pants from 'furfur', and Chanel bowtie heels

I love the small town feel. There is nothing like it. Glad you are back safely and love the Chanel booties.

Those brocade pants are too gorgeous! I agree with you -- I LOVE the "bleak" Texas and Oklahoma landscape...so peaceful. Have a lovely weekend!

Pants are rad as can be.

I love Texas and it's quirky culture. NYC, LA, Paris etc are fun to visit and delve into but I absolutely love living in Texas and find it peaceful, beautiful, inspiring and full of an almost lackadaisical energy.

the outfit below with those same pants was much more successful than this one.

Hi Jane! I have a pair of pants that are kind of like yours but I was not sure about a top idea. This is a great idea for me. <3 Ava

I love the last picture, you really live one or two minute away from there ?? With that kind of shoes, you're not afraid of the dust are you ?

Where is it located in Texas ?

i've been digging your outfits as of late, but this one not so much.
i like all the individual pieces, but together it looks a mess.

Photo of Kelly

Babe's Chicken! Ha-ha. Your shoes are killer!

Photo of Emma Baise-Moi

The pattern of the pants is gorgeous.

But myself, I'm more of an urban sprawl girl – but then again, I have never experienced anything like what Texas must be like.

Photo of dannie

i love the bows on the shoes
the individual pieces here are great, cant say i like them together though

Photo of katie

I like that you didn't match the shirt with the pants. It looks much better to be less matchy matchy.

i love these pants from fur fur and I had no idea that Laforet carries their merchandise!

Those shoes are like "naked" chanels.

PS. totally awesome pages of you and your mom in Vogue! You guys look drop dead.
