THE ANKH

This incredible ankh necklace is a gift from Nathalie and Fernand of Hanna Bernhard. Natalie and Fernand and their son visited Texas this past week. We met up for dinner and was very suprised and honored to be gifted this beautiful ankh Natjalie and Fernand had designed for me. I can't get over the intricacy of it. Thank you so much Nathalie and Fernand!

I've come down with a cold after my week of travelling...the recovery period has given me copious amounts of  time to try on clothes, take photos around the house with my mom, artfully arrange family photos, and try new hairstyles I learned on Youtube.

Wearing a Junya Watanabe fall 2007 flight coat, two Free People lace skirts, leather beads by the Woods, claw necklace by Pamela love, vintage amber stone necklace and Tortellani cross necklace.

ANTIQUING

Glad I got to wear this 60's Bonnie Cashin jacket before it hit the 70's here in Dallas--these pictures are from an antiquing trip in Dallas last week. My mom and my aunt and I went to White Elephant and Lula B's antique malls. Wearing Prada platforms and Current Elliot jeans with a red sweater I got at Lula B's.

FROM VEGAS

Here are some pictures we snapped during our time in Vegas. Kim loved soaking up the sun by the pool.

View from the Cosmopolitan's poolside lounge.

Wearing an amazing 80's dress I found at Lula B's antique mall in Dallas last week. Worn with Jean Paul Gaultier for Target jacket, Hue tights, and Alaia leopard hiking boots.

Brought some tasty burger bites and steakfries from Holsteins and Shakes to eat outside. Mmm.

Kim has been the best dog ever on this trip--she did photoshoots and live interviews and panel speaking and didn't bat an eye...she is the most laidback dog. I'm in New York for the second Bar III launch  party with Macy's (co-hosting with my friends Elizabeth from White Lightning and Rumi from Fashion Toast and Travis and Josh from Street Etiquette) and some meetings. After that its home to Texas :)

BOOMERANG

 

Hi from Vegas--I'm here for the WWDMagic fashion tradeshow and Teen Vogue's fashion blogging discussions. I was just in Vegas last month and here I am again! My mom is with me, and we brought our dog Kim. She has been a great traveller. We're at the Cosmopolitan and the room is amazing! Last night we watched the Grammys with Kim. Since I don't have TV at home, I love watching TV when I travel. Sadly this hotel does not have the Boomerang channel--I love cartoons, espciallu 70's and 80's cartoons. Thundarr the Barbarian is my favorite. I made a gif of me living in my own cartoon...

The Michael Jackson-ish jacket I'm wearing is a find from Palm Beach--I'm in love with it. The fur and leather coat is 60's Bonnie Cashin. The red striped sweater is 80's Balmain (mom found it at the thrift store for 25 dollars) and the skirt it Ivan Grundahl. The dress with the long yellow sleeves is my 70's 'folkloric' dresss, and the crazy space dress is somehting I found at Lula B's this week in Dallas and I think I'm going to wear it today.

Off to the Teen Vogue Blogger Lounge...have to prepare for a little public speaking. Always nerve wracking. It was so much fun seeing Jane Keltner de Valle and Andrew Bevan from Teen Vogue at the Bar III party last week. Thank you Teen Vogue for having me out!

Can't wait to share some pictures of Vegas--until then!

The Annie Hall Coat

These are some leftovers from our snow storm--it was a perfect oppurtunity to wear this 70's Bill Blass coat. Worn with Rugby by Ralph Lauren carpenter pants and pleated chambray shirt, and my trusty Ann Demeulemeester triple lace boots.

My mom found this 70's Edouard Rambaud choker and it's my new favorite piece of jewelry ever--not an understatement.

SHOE REVIEW-PRADA & MIU MIU

I have to be honest---shoes this seaon were kind of a let down. My stand-by favorites like Ann Demeulemeester and Dries van Noten and Celine didn't deliever at all. An exception to this would be Prada & Miu Miu.. Miuccia is never afraid to have fun with the shoes.

Kind of a naughty show girl vibe at Miu Miu with the spectator & butterfly lace up details. The lime green version is my favorite.

I do have one gripe with a pair of shoes at Prada....

The baroque leather bootie would have been a solid 10 if it wasn't for that horrible gimmicky espadrille & foam platform. I made a helpful diagram here to illustrate my point. What a tease--because if you changed the ugly platform to a beautiful solid leather wedge this would be the best shoe of the season for me. I am praying Prada had the good sense to make an all leather variation of this shoe for retail.

These shoes at Prada were amazing though--the checkered woven platform cutie is high on my wishlist.

 Fashion month is right around the corner, so here's to hoping that we'll see more cute shoes!

TEXAS SNOW

We have been having so much fun with this freaky snow storm this week. I have never seen anything like this in my life. It was so strange walking around my neighborhood yesterday and seeing everything completely whited out. It's been like this for four days--and you know what they're saying, they expect more snow on the day of the Superbowl! Even Prince cancelled his show this week. I

It was so fun watching the neighborhood kids play in the snow and taking their pictures. They haven't been in school all week.

I'm wearing a 70's fox fur coat--I got it in Palm Beach. It's in great condition and it was a good deal--I can't take it off! Wearing a 50's fur hat I got on eBay...with Y-3 pants and Fiorentini & Baker midcalf cowboy boots.

 

Everyone's cars were stuck--this guy below was driving around giving people pushes. Even Mr. Sky Blue pools did. I hope everyone in the area is super careful on the roads this week! Or any snowy place for that matter.
