I am really inspired looking through the Hermès archives recently. It was so good when Jean Paul Gaultier was doing and it and Christophe Lemaire has done a really wonderful job there too. Actually a lot of these photos are from his debut F/W 2011 collection there. He achieved something there that no one else could dream to touch on. I am so happy to be revisiting it.

I took serious advantage of Rugby's Black Friday sale. As you might have heard, Rugby is shutting down all of it's stores very soon. If you follow my blog, you might have noticed I am kind of fanatical about all things Ralph Lauren, and Rugby is especially near and dear to my heart. I am so glad to get a few more pieces before they close their doors!

Wearing a Rugby silk plaid dress, Rugby arm warmers, Zara vest, vintage beads, and Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

IMG_0640

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I can't wait for tonight, I get to spend it with some of the people I am most thankful for! My sister Carol is baking away right now. Orange chocolate chippers, brussel sprouts, turkey, potatoes....mmm. Now is not a bad time to mention that I am very thankful for the culinary talents of my mom and sister.

And I would like to express my greatest THANK YOU to everyone who has read or is reading this blog! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for checking in with me. I've had so many readers touch my heart and my family's this year, and you make up A LOT of what I am thankful for today!

Whether you're stateside or not, I hope you get to spend tonight with amazing people (and pets, because they're family too)!

I have to say, I'm completely disoriented by this weather. We shot this outfit yesterday afternoon, it felt like it was June. I am wearing a Tobi surfer sweater, One Teaspoon bonitas shorts, a Rugby men's belt, a watch c/o Daniel Wellington, some old turquoise and silver jewelry from my mom, and Golden Goose superstar sneakers.

HAIR INSPIRATION

Tomorrow I've got a hair appointment with the talented (and stylish) Jessica. My head is always swimming with idea those few hours before a hair appointment....maybe I'll go silvery blonde, maybe I'll cut bangs! I usually end up doing a variation of the same. Better safe than sorry. In any case, here are some of the dreams I'm dreaming lately. I'm really into architectural and compact hairstyles recently, but then I love my big Barbie hair too.

I was so excited to get my hands on a few pieces from the Margiela for H&M collection. I've admired the originals for so long! My mom and I had so much fun grabbing these--not that many people were there for the launch here in Dallas, so everyone was able to take their time and try things on. I met lots of people while I was there, by the end it kind of felt like a private party! I heard that wasn't the case for shoppers elsewhere! We even went back with my dad to look at the collection. He got a a coat with a severed collar and the same fair isle sweater I bought. I have to say I was pretty shocked by his sense of adventure! Haha!

I'm wearing the Margiela for H&M oversized turtleneck, folded skirt, and candy wrapper clutch with Margiela cut-out boots.

Also wearing the Margiela for H&M perspex boots with vintage cut-offs, shiny Kova & T leggings (thank you to Kova & T for sending me these!) and Style Nanda jacket.

A lot of people on Instagram were asking for a tutorial on how to do the hairstyle I'm wearing. Thanks for your feedback! I will be posting a how-to for this look next week!
