spring obsessions! jeffrey campbell & erin wasson x rvca

hooray for spring...fashion! florals and neutrals and wedges...oh my! i can't get enough of spring's fabulous trends, and, lately, i have not seen a jeffrey cambell shoe i don't love. most of them are unattainable and on backorder for months, like the jeffrey campbell pixie, my FAVORITE wedge ever. i can't even get it until may...so sad:
available in early may at need supply co. (which is a fabulous, recently-discovered site!), $172

And here are the two pairs I couldn't resist (and were available!)
jeffrey cambpell tick, sold out; get on the wait list at solestruck.com $170

jeffrey campbell mary rocks, $120 at lorisshoes.com
AND if you use code 'toutie' when you check out, you get 20% off at lori's shoes! final cost for these puppies: $96!

LAST, but not least. THE NEW ERIN WASSON X RVCA HITCHHIKER DRESS is finally out! Wow, took too long. was supposed to go on sale the end of february, but was unattainable until today:
erin wasson x rvca sweet hitchhiker dress, $90, available here at revolveclothing.com

ANOTHER deal! Use promo code 'tulip' and get 15% off at revolve.
total cost for the dress: $76.50.

savvy shopping ;)

80s comeback

i kinda love big shoulders.

yes, it's true -- you have to be super careful when choosing your silhouettes. Many vintage 80s tops and dresses with shoulder pads absolutely engulf my narrow shoulders, so, big shoulders don't always work.

but, a little goes a long way. i adore this ruched shoulder black cardi which i picked up at h&m in michigan during christmas. it is the perfect amount of big shoulder-ness for me!

wearing: jcrew top, h&m cardi, f21 necklace & ring, asos zipper leggings, f21 booties

just had to throw in this pic of my sis & booey. i miss them :(

so, break out the shoulder pads (in moderation, naturally). just remember to only test out one 80s element at a time!

outfit of the day: sunny skies

we've had some nice weather in austin during the past few weeks; we finally seemed to have been escaping the last bit of a chilly texas winter...
however, tonight they're saying we could get snow tomorrow....up to an inch!
...i'll believe it when i see it.

took these pics a few weeks ago near sunset, on a day where the sun finally inched its way out of the clouds. the sky and view of downtown austin were lovely!

boo & i are wearing: silence & noise dress, h&m jacket, target tights, bebe booties, lots of vintage necklaces, h&m scarf, marc jacobs sunglasses

outfit of the day: warm winter day

we had a few warm winter days in austin after a lot of chilly texas days! it finally was warm enough for me to be comfortable wearing a skirt. i took boo out into the sunshine to take pictures with me. he loves the sun...and taking pictures.

wearing: jcrew button down shirt, f21 skirt, guess nude heels, h&m bracelet, jcrew necklace, vintage sunglasses

come back, austin sunshine! lately, i've had to go back to the winter wear. been busy doing photo shoots & fashion shows -- did a fashion brunch at sagra yesterday with megan summerville lingerie & tracy tenpenny jewelry. Look for an article in the austin statesman on thursday, february 11th!

inspiration - lady gaga and elton john opening performance at the 2010 grammys

dear lady gaga,
i love you.

how can you not love her? she certainly puts on a show. she looks fab, as always! her performace with elton john to open the grammys was great; loved the green sequin outfit - especially the shoes (still have to find a picture of her entire performance outfit; will update when i get one!).

Megan Summerville & Tracy Tenpenny runway show

this happened a long time ago....last year in fact. still, i'd never gotten the pictures up from the show, and i finally want to share them! it was a show i did with Megan Summerville lingerie & Tracy Tenpenny jewelry - two fabulous designers. Here are some shots from Chad at la pistole - all pictures from la pistola's site, www.lapistola.com
i did the jewelry styling for this show, so i tried to find pictures where you could kinda see the jewelry...

(look, i'm in the background! yay)

seeking the perfect pair...

Lately, i've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of pants; it has been an exhausting experience. i still haven't found exactly what i've been looking for, but here are a few contenders, at least in terms of shape. I'm looking for something slightly higher-waisted, kind of tapered, and with the option to roll up the bottom to show off the shoes. here are a few i've come across with potential:

I really like these topshop cropped pants...they're also completely in line with the khaki trend. $70 at topshop.com; not a bad price. they could work.

a pair from reiss.co.uk - also cute; not entirely sold on these, though. still, cute. cost: $95

a nice pair from asos.com. i do really like these. still, hard to tell how the fabric will look in person...and returns to the UK suck. still, at $76.49...it may be worth it to test these babies out.

these may win the contest. super simple, super cute jcrew cropped trouser at jcrew.com. for $118, i may have to think this decision over a little while longer.

a mad men holiday

My company had a mad men themed holiday party this year; here are some of my fave (and incredibly fashionable) pics!

my lovely team

my boo & myself

my fave set of pics - best friendies fighting over our true love!

I am wearing: Milly dress, crinoline, f21 necklace, h&m earrings, satin gloves, dolce vita shoes, asos back seam tights. also wore my kate spade jacket...will have to see if i can find a pic.

We had an amazing time, and the photographer was fabulous. I do have some more individual pics from my own camera, but I have to upload them...which I'll do soon! In my pics you can see my entire outfit.
