austin's tribeza fashion week

Eek. It's been too long since my last post! I promise, I'll get better....

I've been completely preoccupied with Austin Tribeza Fashion Week 2009; a lot was going on between that and all of my other work! Anyway, I haven't seen a lot of the pictures come out yet; in fact, I've only come across one photographer who's posted pics from the show & events. And the pictures which Tribeza has on their site are from the same photographer --JohnPesina at Here are the pictures so I said...I have my eye out for more!

These are the looks I styled with clothes from MissBehave Boutique and Tracy Tenpenny Jewelry:

look 1: only did the earrings here, and unfortunately you can't see them in this shot...

Look 2: This one is fun...there are a bunch of cute pendants/jewels are up on the neckline, too; again, I'll try to get some close ups.

Look 3: my fave; again, looking for a better angle! This necklace is awesome -- it's called 'the academy.' love it! also, fun earrings.

all pics from
this is a picture from Wednesday at Kappie's store, Beyond Tradition, on 2nd St. in austin. Me, Tracy, & Kappie....awww, cute.

That's all I've got for now....I'll keep updating!

more from the shoot...bad ass look

Here's another look from the photo shoot I did while my sister was here....we each did two looks. This is one of the "bad ass" looks I styled on myself...

flying! wish my arms wouldn't have been cut off :( still, cool pic.

close what the jewelry is doing!

one of my fave photos...also my current facebook pic.
wearing: asos denim, oasis studded booties, faux fur vest, h&m top, vintage bracelets & cuffs, necklace created by me (by combining 3 existing necklaces)

All in all, a successful shoot! More looks to come. Also have been working on a new lookbook for another designer...hopefully that will come together soon & I'll have more pics to post.

photo shoot with the sis

So, my sis came out for labor day, which was exciting for me! We had lots of fun running around Austin together, and we even made time for a couple photo shoots. That was a high priority on my list, since she's a fantastic model, as is evident in the photos:

model: sarah (sis); styling: me; she's wearing a kate spade coat, target cloche, vintage earrings, random bangles & bracelets, luichiny cutout booties

Lots more fab pictures to come....shot the sis in another outfit, and she tested the waters by photographing me in some of my self-styled outfits. Yay! It was a really fun Labor Day break.

outfit of the day: summer chic

And then it was September.........

Crazy. I can't believe that the summer months are pretty much over (even though it's still in the high 90s here in Austin...that ain't autumn weather, my friends)! Don't pack away your summer whites and florals just yet, though; you've still got time to relish in the beauty of summer's boho slouchyness (is that a word? probably not) and romantic ruffles.

Here are some pictures of an outfit I wore the other was HOT out = sweaty. I was trying to get an outdoor shot with the Austin skyline in the kinda/sorta worked; unfortunately, I can't direct and be in shoots at the same time. And the sun was crazy bright, so there's definitely over-exposure, too, sigh. Damn relinquishing-of-all-control. Hate it.

wearing: h&m men's tee, urban button skirt, jcrew floral belt, lots of vintage bracelets & bangles, flats from urban...forget what the label is called

Anyway, sorry for the lack of recent posts....the bf has been gone, and doing the whole attempt-to-take-my-own-picture thing is a lot of effort. Plus I've been doing some styling...yay! I'll post more this month...promise.
