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

Only place in Texas I really loved was Ferris and that's because it had the whole small town thing. I didn't like mainstream Dallas (other than Park Cities), Cedar Hill, nor did I like Greenville.
Love those shoes! And the pants... And the pants and shoes together.

i love your outfit for today again!

i adore your style so much!

Hey hey! I'm loving your blog! It's great. What's equally as great is this killer outfit! I love the contrast between your very american, masculine shirt and your romantic pants. And those Chanel heels... well there aren't even words to express how much I envy you for owning those! And I agree... I currently live in the city, but there is nothing like it when I go out of state and head back home to Georgia. Nobody does the simple things in life quite like southerners! (Even though Texas and Georgia are very different kinds of south.) Again, love the blog :)

Those pants are incredible!! Love the eclectic mix of patterns/textures in your outfit with the laid-back shape -- it's genius! And those insane-hot Chanels don't hurt, either :)
