Austin Street Style'd by Allison and Brandi.

This outfit was styled a few weeks ago by my friends Allison and Brandi. The clothing in this photograph is from the Austin thrift staple Buffalo Exchange, which offers a great selection of second-hand fashions.

Austin Street Style: I fell in love with a girl at the car show!

Her name escapes me, but this lovely lady allowed me to take her photo at the car show that visited Austin last weekend. Her outfit reminded me of this old War War II poster of Rosie the Riveter.

The car show was amazing! I love seeing vintage hot-rods. I had a great time, walking down South Congress.

I still have no computer access at home and school is very busy right now (along with a few other students, I am making a window display for Mychael Knight's visit).

The good news? I am turning 21 in eight days, and am looking forward to that very much!

I am trying to come up with a giveaway idea, as then I can just let that run for a week or two...ha, this no computer access is making me so lazy.

Hope all y'all are having a gorgeous, fabulous day and remember, you're never fully dressed without a smile!


Slight Hiatus.

So...my Dell laptop died last Saturday. The motherboard fried because I was using a generic plug-in battery.

So, if I only post every once in a while for the next few months, that's why.

Here's my favorite Spring Break outfit from this past week (I start Spring Quarter on Monday):

I went to the Mansfield Dam outside of Austin in Rasta-colored Kustom sandals ($15 at the Round Rock Billabong outlet) and my tie-dyed dress from Mazatlan, Mexico (15 pesos...8 years ago). The wind was wild that day: despite the fact that I was trying hard to not repeat Marilyn Monroe's scene in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch, I was comfy. To me, comfort is key when I'm not at work or at school.
