I'm back from Texas Style Council! Oh my gosh, it is was SUCH a blast, and so incredibly hot in Austin! I had never been to Austin before, though I had always dreamt about going. It's such a rad city. There are certain parts of it that really remind me of Seattle, Portland, and my favorite street in Long Beach, CA. The heat was pretty unbearable, topping off at 104 degrees. Oof! But it was tons of fun beside feeling like I was on fire every time I stepped outside. There are a ridiculous amount of amazing vintage stores, my favorite being Uncommon Objects. It contains the most insanely beautifully collections of vintage objects I have ever seen. They were kind enough to let me snap some photos inside so I'll be giving you some sneak peeks into their store later this week.
This was the outfit I wore on the second day of the conference. On the first day, it was so hot outside that my shoes literally melted and fell apart. I was walking down the street with a few friends and my right shoe just fell apart! The whole heel peeled off and when I took it off, one of the straps suddenly fell off as well. It was 10 minutes before I was headed to a dinner with Minnetonka Moccasins so I had to run into a little store and quickly buy some shoes. I of course got blisters from the new wedges after walking a few blocks to the dinner, so boy was I grateful for the new moccasins that Minnetonka gave me at the dinner! I'll have to blog about them this week or next :)
After the dinner with Minnetonka, we all headed to the Lulu's Clothing Swap. Everyone at the conference brought 2 pieces of clothing and one book to swap. Dispersed through out all of the clothing we brought, Lulu's also planted a ton of their pieces. So when everyone rushed in to grab their 2 new items of clothing, I grabbed 2 lulu's pieces I was eyeing, one of them being this striped skirt. Because I am quite curvy up top, I get nervous sometimes wearing things two high on my waist or I'll feel like a big blob. But Chelsey convinced me that this skirt was made for my true waist. I'm usually afraid I'll look too cutesie cutesie in fluffy skirts like this but I actually really love this adorable fluffy skirt from Lulu's!
Here's a nice treat of a photo revealing a bit of the more bratty/sassy side of my personality... Oh lord. Thank you Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky for snapping these shots of me! I had such a fun time hanging out with Elizabeth all weekend, as per usual. She's from just 45 mins outside of Seattle and is my favorite Washington blogger buddy. She's endlessly entertaining and I can't help but get a little goofy around that girl ;)
