I've always thought photos of people in their natural state of being are more interesting to look at, before I even knew who Mr. Cunningham was. Snapping a candid shot also takes out the clumsy "Hi, I write a style blog you've never heard of, can I get your photo?" chat. The bottom line? People, as strangers, fascinate me, and capturing the essence of an event can be done without anyone posing for their photo.
So here are the rest of my photos from Monday night's Rock the Casbah Fashion Show at Phara's outdoor patio. Some are candid, others are not. Either way, I hope you enjoy this little piece of Austin.
Laurie Gallardo: her radio personality matches up with her personal style.
I like the floral pattern on the stripes.
Juliana and Amy, from Blackbird Clothes & Curios.

I like how she tucked the handkerchief halter into the high-waisted shorts.
Still wearing her skirt from Splendor, this model has the look of a genie.
The lighting was done by ILIOS.
This is designer of the leather pouches that were shown during the Green House segment of the fashion show.
I have to give props to the belly dancer.
Phara's, as we were leaving.
At Epoch with a muffin to-go: Lisa; many thanks to her for getting me to the show!
My tights and boots are from Wet Seal, while my shirtdress is from Target. I say "shirtdress" because it was meant to be a kid's shirt, with an attached cami underneath. I cut out the cami long ago.
If you would like to see my photos of the fashion show, I posted them on Tuesday.
