ROAD TRIP-off to Austin

I'm in the middle of packing for a short road trip to Austin...I'm going with my mom and my aunt Karen for two days of vintage shopping & really good Mexican food. I love Austin, I can't wait to go back. The shopping there is so great!

Before I go, some pictures of tasty junk food I consumed this week with two of my best friends.

 Curly fries at Pizza Hut..nice blue nailpolish Viky!!


Jumbo sized gumdrops..they look so pretty but after eating five of them you kind of want to heave.


Corey tackles Viky


Viky tries on my Ray Ban glasses

Showing off an AMAZING jungle green velvet wrap skirt..it's vintage YSL, I can't stop wearing it. Definitely packing it for this road trip. 
Worn with a mohair Prada cardigan, vintage belt, and Prada sling backs.


Mm McDonad's ice cream!! Haha, I'm sorry for such a boring post. I've been busy this week organizing upcoming trips.

Can't wait to share my pictures of Austin with you guys...until then!

No! This is not a boring post at all! I think it's always so nice to see a tiny glimpse into each fashion bloggers life. (Granted we don't need or want every little detail...) But it is always nice to get a taste for their everyday life. It gives this cyber world and these online connections a more tangible element. And certainly for someone who is as big of a deal in both the blogging and fashion community outside the internet as you are, it helps to understand how "normal" you are. The fact that you go to the grocery store to buy junk food and goof off with your friends is precious and priceless. (Of course you look more stylish doing so than most people could ever hope to...) I guess what I'm trying to say is that it brings that relatability factor. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, just a thought. Thanks for sharing with us the everyday fun and happenings.
Great outfit! The velvet skirt is beautiful. A truly wonderful piece!
Have so much fun in Austin! Can't wait to see the pictures...

Hope you're enjoying your stay here in Austin. So much to do. Lots of small authentic Mexican food on South 1st St. Check out the Art of Jewelry Boutique(opened this month) and partner gallery Art on 5th(cool Dr. Seus exhibit) and how could I forget my besties jewelry store, Fashionique Boutique in the Mueller Center. Buffalo Exchange and Cream Vintage on the drag (Guadalupe St.)near campus.

You have a little something of Bree Van de Kamp in your photo. Being soooooooo classy in such a place !!!

Photo of Marloes vandenBerg

Not a boring post at all! I love your outfit, especially your jacket and glasses.
I love the USA grocerie stores, they are so huge and sell really typical American products. I really miss those stores!
Have fun in Austin!

Photo of Margaret

I hate that the Americans wear sweatpants all the time. And they're usually dirty, too long and don't even cover their asses! I can't stand seeing someone ass or "sexy" lingerie everywhere! And I don't understand why does almost everyone wear something from Hollister every day. Hoodie from H., tank top from H., jeans from H. That's a hell. Each of these clothes scream: That's made by Hollister! As I have the same amount of money as normal teenager who works after school I'd rather buy something from American Eagle or the other brands. They don't have big prints thrown all over their clothes. I mean I don't buy a t-shirt which says to everyone: "I'm from AE" I wish I could wear really high hills like you do but I don't know how to walk in them. Ok, if they're wedges or they don't have something skinny, long under my feet that I can easily break my legs it's not a big problem. But still the ones which are so high aren't available for me.

Your fan from Chicago (the hell full of rarely washed sweatpants, Hollister teens, and those who think that they're emo, but they're just weird "WTF's").

wow, this gumdrops... superb!!

Photo of ely

the last pic is my fave.

love how the ice cream cone's at the forefront and the background is just slightly out of focus


Photo of Margaret

I guess I spelled wrong these "heels". Ha ha. But why do I care?:) I'm not American, I'm just couple years in the US.

Photo of Gina

You won a award on my blog :)

Not boring at all! It's nice to see you live nrmal live -just in the middle of vintage ysl and other goodies-

wow, what the hell? People are getting pissed off that you dress up to go grocery shopping? I love it, you look fabulous! You don't need a special occasion to look great! I go to UT and I dress up to go to class everyday while everyone else on campus is in running shorts...but running shorts aren't my thing, so I wear what I want. Some of you commenters sound ridiculous...go back to your sweatpants and old t-shirts and whatever and stop reading fashion blogs!

Photo of regina

hi, I don´t know if you even notice my comment but I just want to send you one.
Your blog is damn nice:D

Photo of Vanessa @ Chic and Charming

Market chic! You're not the only one who dolls up to go to the market. I've been doing that for years. It makes me feel pretty and it's inspiring to look at.

I love your glasses, by the way. Keep the posts coming! You have a style that's inspiring. :)
