HAPPY VALENTINES!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day!
My mom recently moved into her new place and I love this crazy green velvet loveseat she put in her bedroom. Doesn't Mr. Paper Mache Tiger look cute next to it? We're having so much fun staying up late decorating our respective spaces.

I'm wearing a 70's polyester disco dress that I've had since I was fifteen or sixteen. It's absolutely one of my favorites!

MY NEW CLOSET

Kind of in love with the set-up in my closet--so much space and I can see EVERYTHING! This will make getting dressed so fun. Still need to work on accessories storage. Is it weird that I have more silk scarves than I have pairs of underwear?

IN MY NEW PLACE

I am so sorry for the lack of updates--I have not been able to get internet as quickly as I had hoped in my new place. I've spent the last three days trying to get my apartment together, with the help of some amazing people! It's got a ways to go but I am already so happy here.
My new place is in a very old-school apartment complex and  comes with a cast of characters. I've twice spotted an elderly gay couple pushing their bulldog in a baby stroller and walking their italian greyhound along side.

You can see a bit of how it's coming along in this photo--I'm wearing some neon shorts sent to me Notify (thank you, I love them!!) and my favorite Stylenanda sweater.

I can't wait to show more once it comes together! Now I understand why they rate moving as one of the most stressful life events you'll go through. It's getting there though!

(I had to bring some toys of course, and my new kitty Gish)

NEW APARTMENT

I'm so in love with my new apartment, here is a quick glimpse of it! It's a work in progress. I can't wait to move in.

Wearing Madewell Skinny Skinny jeans in white, thrifted Pierre Cardin velvet jacket, vintage western floral shirt, and Laurence Dacade mid-calf boots.

My mom and I went by White Elephant Antiques and Lula B's yesterday to pick up some knick-knacks to fill up my apartment. I also found an amazing dining table at Again & Again!

This is called a tantalus--how cool is that??

My favorite booth in White Elephant!

My mom and I fell in love with these guys at Lula B's. They make a great couple, don't they? The kitty is mine and I've named her Gish.

A Few Moments from 2011

Happy New Years everyone! What a year it was. This morning I went through a year's worth of blog posts. 2011 holds a lot of special memories for me and I'm sad to say goodbye to it. The new year is going to be full of exciting changes though. Before I jump into 2012, I'm going to post some of my favorite memories from 2012.

Kim is easily the most important part of 2011 to me. We adopted her in February and I know I'm going to sound like a crazy dog lady (which I am), but I cannot tell you how much joy she brings us. Kim is so effervescent and hilarious...truly an ethereal being. We are all so lucky to have these special animals in our lives!

The year started off with two trips to Las Vegas--one to speak on a panel for Kodak at the Consumer Electronics Convention and one to attend WWD's Magic tradeshow with Teen Vogue. The CES convention was so fun! Vegas was so surreal. My mom and I wondered around Crystal shopping center people-watching...seriously fascinating crowd. A lot of crazy looking people. We probably fit right in though, with Kim tucked under our arms ;)

These totally insane Yves Saint Laurent platforms were purchased while we were in Vegas (naturally)! I love this photo of my mom and my sister and I wearing them. I wore these shoes about every day this summer. I fell really hard at a party in them--like head over heels. Sooo embarrassing.

I got to meet so many other bloggers I admire this year and see so many of my other blogger friends! It's so cool to finally get to meet someone who you feel like you know already because read their blog. When I got to meet Alix I was pretty starstruck--I love her blog so much!! This was taken while we were on set for Glamour's Young and Posh photoshoot-shot by Garance Dore. Garance is so sweet and funny. We got to see each other soon after when were in Palm Beach for the House of Lavande dinner party.

This year I had the chance to interview Nicholas Kirkwood, one of my favorite shoe designers, while he was in Dallas--what an honor! He was so much fun to talk to.

Had a brief fling with bangs this spring. Not my favorite look, but my mom and I enjoyed doing this photoshoot. Lesson learned: no impulse cuts in 2012.

I was in New York for a weekend during August, and I came back to find our studio totally made over! My mom amazes me with the speed with which she can complete a project. We love to hang out here now! I'll be sad to leave it when I move.

My mom and I co-hosted at Miu Miu's Fashions Night Out in New York this September, which was a blast! I was with some of my favorites that night--Tavi and Elizabeth namely. Miu Miu sent us some of the fall collection samples to shoot before the event. To shoot that collection was a dream come true for us! We shot this all at a local feed store.

I was the Fanastic Mr. Fox for Halloween this year--it came together very last minute but sometimes that's how things work out the best!

This year my mom and I got to meet one of our idols--Kelly Wearstler. Kelly is one of the sweetest people I've ever met! I remember how excited we were to be at a dinner party she hosted in New York this fall. What a magical night! My mom and I were thrilled to be able to shoot her new clothing line. When the boxes arrived, it was like Christmas morning. We used the beautiful wrapping paper as a set backdrop.

 

Shooting the Reed Krakoff pre-fall collection was pretty amazing--Reed is one of my favorite designers. I had the chance to meet him in New York earlier this year--definitely a highlight of this year! Reed is so kind and warm.

My mom and decided that we liked these photos the best out of all the ones we took this year--we had planned to shoot it somewhere else, but then my mom was just testing the light while I was getting ready in my bedroom and happened to get something really cool.

This is one of my favorite shots I took of my mom from this year! It looks like she is casting a spell.

My sister's return from school for the holidays was one of the happiest moments of 2011. We miss her so much and are having so much fun now that she is home for the holidays.

 

Shooting with Mario Sorrenti in November was definitely the most nerve-wracking thing I've ever done. He's used to shooting supermodels, so shooting me had to be a looooong way down from that. You can't imagine how self-concious I felt walking into his studio!  The shoot ended up being insanely fun and Mario was the nicest person you've ever met. I cannot wait for the project to debut this year!

What a crazy year. Thanks to all of the amazing people who made it so special--and thanks to those who keep tuning into Sea of Shoes!
