Dressing Room Hijinks and More

Ahh, what a week! Yesterday I was so happy to get out of my work cave and go spend some time with my family. We had so much fun taking my sister to the mall and watching movies all night  now that she is home. I tried on a few things myself...I have fall fashion fever, someone cure me!! All items available at Neiman Marcus.

My followers on Instagram voted the little black A.L.C. dress a clear winner.

  I tried on THAT Isabel Marant dress!! So Texas.

My actual outfit I wore. Patchwork jeans by Maison Scotch and Vince knit sweater.

The graphic leather panels on these Rag & Bone pants were very 70's racer cartoon--I like with the sneakers!

This Alice & Olivia groupie coat--had to  just slip it on. Cha cha!

I snagged these Golden Goose sneakers on sale a while ago and I am so happy I did. This version of them is next on my want list.

A shot from inside my apartment yesterday morning. I'm kind of a brass & gold person.

Sweet Melanie, she hates to get out of bed in the morning, poor thing.

A delicious chocolate mousse from La Fiorentina on Sunday! It tasted as good as it looks!

Haha--okay, this is an oldie but a goody. Townsend checking out my portrait of him as a dog celebrity.

I have had so many questions about who designed these boots, and I hate to break it to you guys, but they are vintage. Got them in Austin! Boots of a lifetime, for sure.


Another thing I've had a lot of emails about: this faux fur is by DKNY, and you can still get it here! It's super cute for layering, and the perfect weight for schizophrenic Texas winters.

Till next time!

Button-sleeve charcoal turtle neck from a thriftstore, skirt from H&M, Nike sneakers, men's watch c/o Daniel Wellington

This is one of the looks I styled for the next Thrifstore Essentials story my mom and I have been working on. The sneakers are actually my mom's, I'm obsessed with them, and they're 45% off right now so I might have to snag a pair. I'm so into this watch right now, when Daniel Wellington offered to send us one of their watches, I immediately fell for their mens collection. I have barely taken it off since it got here!

What I wore on a rainy, windy day when I ran out to get lunch and window shop with my mom. The tuna sandwich at the Mermaid Bar is my favorite thing to eat in the world. My mom fell in love with this cape at Diesel, I loved it too!

Wearing Rag & Bone the Dre jeans, Prada bi-color brogues, Madewell belt, Tory Burch sunglasses, and Zara scarf.

When Valentino wrote me to tell me that my mom and I were going to be the lucky recipients of a special shoe gift, it was like Christmas and a birthday wrapped into one! Every day we waited for the Fedex truck, saying "This is the day! The Valentinos will be here!". This went on for almost two weeks and then we started to get a little concerned. The shoes were stuck in customs and after much ado, they finally arrived. Phew!

These beautiful shoes given to us by Valentino are part of a limited collection of 100 pairs. They are all sold out now unfortunately. I am beyond grateful to have a pair in my closet to call my own--thank you so much to the Valentino team!  (P.S. if you are a fan of these shoes, get a load of the rockstud flats....aren't they dreamy!)

Wearing a faux fur leopard jacket by DKNY, Rag & Bone for Intermix jeans, white tank, RRL d-ring belt, a patchwork leather Dolce & Gabanna bag, and a quartz lollipop necklace c/o Ippolita, and sunglasses by Tory Burch.

We decided to throw a little party at my mom's house to celebrate the addition of Melanie to the doggy family! We did it with a birthday cake because that's the only dog cake we could find, but are there really any rules about when doggy birthday cakes are appropriate?? Melanie didn't think so! Kim and Mel are wearing matching polka dotted Martha Stewart coats we got at Petsmart. Gotta love embarrassing your dogs!

I love Melanie so much, I am so lucky to have found her! She is feeling a little down today, because she got spayed yesterday. Poor baby. We're having a nice relaxing girls day in.
