Happy Easter! These photos are from a few weeks back and somehow I am only getting around to posting them now. I am still editing all the pictures from Marfa last week. This weekend I am in Tulsa, Oklahoma visiting family. It is one of my favorite secret shopping cities. Always find amazing vintage here, I have to show you as soon as possible! I got a crazy fur cone hat and a sheer pink fifties dress that are to die for. Enjoy your weekend!

My mom and I headed out to Marfa brimming with inspiration and new ideas and methods we wanted to explore. We were making the long drive to Marfa and took some backroads along the way. Soon we reached a land of brushy sandhills and eery see-sawing oil pumps. It was perfect, we knew it was exactly what we needed. We pulled over on the side of the road, lassoed our chihuahuas to the steering wheel, layed our suitcases out on the side of the dirt road and did an impromptu styling session. It was insane and hilarious, but such a magical moment for us both.

Wearing vintage clothing from Feathers boutique in Austin. That striped sweater is 80s Givenchy Sport and the skirts are 70s.

I got this cool G.R.I.T.S. Outlaws shirt in Austin last month. I love the look of leather pants and concho belts. This one is my mother's, she got it in Santa Fe twenty years ago. These pics were taken on the ride back to Dallas yesterday morning! We drove nine hours and were still in the same state...wow!

NIGHT AT A HAUNTED HOTEL

Wearing shorts c/o Amber Sakai, a vintage fur coat, a Chan Luu sweater, and Prada pumps.

When we arrived in Big Springs, Texas, we had no idea that we were stopping in one of the creepiest towns in America. We spent the night there in the Hotel Settles on our way to Marfa. The hotel has been recently redone, and it is spectacularly beautiful. We enjoyed a nice dinner and spent a while in their Pharmacy bar, where we got to talk to some of the employees and the sheriff. They warned us of all the unsettled spirits that inhabit the hotel and recounted many of their own supernatural experiences! (Flickering lights, apparitions, exploding glasses!) Right after hearing all of this, I checked my instagram. My picture of the hotel lobby was flooded with comments of people claiming to see a 'skull' in the photo! How creepy is that?? Big Spring itself is a pretty spooky place. Paul Harvey has said, "If you want to commit murder and get away with it, go to Big Spring, TX.".

The bad juju in the place was undeniable. My mom and I both woke up at 3 AM, she had felt a huge gust of freezing air come over her and then suddenly there was this weirdly human-sounding tapping in our room. We both heard it! It was as if something was trying to get our attention.

Still, we loved Hotel Settles and want to return some day soon. The beautiful ballroom we shot in was my favorite part. We are now safely in Marfa and have been having the time of our lives. Cannot wait to share more!

Now I get to show off some of my own Red Valentino! I absolutely love this dress, it has a very Western saloon feel to it. Perfect for a Texas girl. The Rochas Victorian-style granny boots were made for it!

I love to pile on layers of black, since it is the color that goes with everything. I recently styled a look for Michael Stars wearing some of their new spring collection recently...here I am wearing a sleeveless muscle tank and shirred skirt by Michael Stars with a Richard Chai shearling aviator jacket and vintage mens ankle boots.

Vintage Chanel Jackets + Boyfriend Jeans Three Ways

IMG_3624-2

I have been really excited to share this series! I did three looks with three different vintage Chanel jackets, all with the Chimala denim ankle pants. I'm not exaggerating when I say I'm in love with these jeans.

First off is the classic black & white boucle Chanel jacket. Worn with a vintage flower brooch, Martin Margiela yellow puffer clutch, and Balenciaga sandals.

Next is a emerald tweed epaulette Chanel jacket, worn with the Chimala jeans, a lace camisole, vintage jewel necklace, enamel bracelets, and Dries Van Noten beaded sandals.

Now here comes some real style!! While we were shooting this story, my mom's neighbors walked by with their fabulous 7 year old poodle Tasha. She's my new fashion icon. I want a pink afro and a black polo shirt now too.
