Rainy Day on South Congress

I had a great time in Austin with my aunt and my mom these past two days..we stayed at the San Jose Hotel.


Maybe all of these plants liked the rain we experienced on Monday, but not me. We didn't let the crappy weather ruin our short trip though.

A slice of apple pie at the Woodland Cafe, my favorite food on South Congress. It reminds me of Twin Peaks. As Agent Cooper would say, "This must be where pies go when they die".

Right down the street was Uncommon Objects at 1512 South Congress Ave. You can spend hours in this store..and I think we did.


A trip to Austin isn't complete without a trip to Feathers-I love this store. The owners Emily and Masha are so sweet. It is extremely well edited and they're always getting new stuff! Mom and I came home with some things we love.

Eventually the sun came out, and I was able to debut one of my purchases-a little 70's navajo-style vest I picked up at New Bohemia.

These pants are 'new' too. I got them a week or two ago in New York at What Goes Around Comes Around. I am obsessed with vintage Yves Saint Laurent bloomers and I finally found myself a good pair! I was totally stressed out when I got to New York, but then I found these and the trip was all worth it. I love them. 



These Pradas were the only shoes I brought on the trip-they are from fall 2006. These are some great shoes. Prada Fall 06 was one of my favorite seasons for Prada ever!

Coming up next...my favorite store in Austin! Expect a post soon.

What Goes Around Comes Around is such a great store.... many of my dollars have gone towards clothing from there haha. They have really good sales every so often, if you get on their mailing list they'll email in advance for the warehouse sales. It'll give you yet another good reason to fly to NY or LA!

I was gonna say that the exposed skin at the sides is too much for me, but I can't! I absolutely LOVE this getup! Work it.

If oyu're a twin peaks fan you should come to WA, we've got the actual Twin Peaks diner, hiking and some excellent milkshakes out in North Bend.

Not much fashion though, unless you're into fleece.

Minus the second to last picture, these are the best pictures I've seen of you to date. I don't know what it is inside of me that wishes you were a few inches taller...maybe it is what you wear. Oh and I don't know if I'm the only one who noticed but you'll be on next week's episode of MTV's favorite travesty called "The City." Vogue is one thing, but no more playing in the mud with MTV!

Photo of Cate

Love It. PS. You are going to be on next week's episode of The City? Sweet!

Photo of Jyun

That is one hell of a pie. Must eat it once before I perish.
P.S. The frilly bottom of the pants make them look like two blooming onions.

Photo of Emilie

Oh this hotel is so cute, like your outfit!

Photo of Phils

It's crazy how you change the image people had on texas (well at least mine!) and it's a compliment!

Photo of Cecylia

I'm French and I went to Texas when I was 14 and I had the worst time ever. But now that I see all your pics, I just want to go back there and visit some more.

First off : super cute outfit! I am swooning over the shops you visited...I could probably get lost in them for days looking at all the treasures!

Photo of CarolineLindsey

Hee, I totally came to comment on the "City" sighting and realized someone already had, of course:) You have to give us the dish on Olivia and if she's really as horrible in real life as they paint her on the show! Cause I just don't want to believe that she is because she's so pretty and I love how she dresses...sigh, so shallow.

Photo of Pen

I love this look, I like the idea of combining a so stylish pair of trousers, to a rustic top with ethnic jacquard, you always manage to create strong contrasts with impressive results, a true fashion stylist!
