Summer Summer Summer

it's here. The best time of the year. Sunshine & no
schedule. No homework. And less clothes. Especially
since it's already hit the triple digits down in Texas.
I just can't wait for a three week stay in Chicago at 
the end of this month. I'm excited to truly experience 
one of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen.

I got this Maude cropped loose/sheer tank and sort of acid washed 
pleated shorts at Langford Market ( and this is
my wonderful sister's Crochet Pocket Pendant from Free people.

Royal Wedding

Is there more to say?
how can you not love these two? I know it has nothing
to do with fashion. But believe me, when her dress is
finally shown, it will be. Just enjoy obsessing over 
the fairytale romance of the 21st century.

Like Father like Daughter

The fun things in life...
I love my father. This might be my favorite picture of me and my
dad. Together we do embarrassing things, speak out of turn, and 
it goes without saying, dress fabulously. Sometimes...
at Urban Outfitters. (fyi, he usually looks more normal)


"I ain't ever seen no white boy 
wearin a Dashiki before!"

This is in no way a racist comment. It was actually said directly to a friend of mine who 

purchased a Dashiki (african tunic or shirt) from Goodwill the other day. The cashier was 
amused by this odd purchase, it was one of those random finds that for some reason 
you can't pass up. Even though he is planning on wearing it to school simply because 
he lost a bet, it actually gave me an idea. And now I want one. Badly.
I can see one working perfectly with white shorts or pants.

Something I Wore

Something I wore..
     I wore this to my school's annual Christmas Banquet.
Something that the administration of small private school believes 
is the equivalent of a prom. But everyone one knows that just 
because you have a party dress and a date does not mean that a
lame meal at a country club at 7 pm, which included a motivational
speaker, is in no way a prom. Despite this, I got to dress up,
even though in the life of a uniform wearing high schooler every
occasion other than class is a time to dress up, it was a little
     I Purchased my dress at Neiman Marcus, it is Aiden Mattox and
falls around 5 inches above the knee, has bat sleeves, and cut
outs on the top of the sleeves. It is also completely covered in
sparkly beads and sequins, which is really the reason I bought it.
I'm sort of obsessed with sparkles, but not in a tacky way of
course! The shoes were a last minute-night-before-the-event steal.
Even though bought out of necessity and there weren't really any
other options, I ended up loving them. Who can hate a neutral
platform pump? Overall I think it was a success.

Hello There.

So. I'm back. 
I doubt any one really missed me, considering the lack of readers and viewers of my little baby. But still, I feel like 
I ought to keep her going just in case it ends up benefitting me somehow, hey why not? It's fun!
Well, even though my life has been thoroughly packed with school, journalism, art deadlines, and, well, simply 
having a life, I've still been spending time skimming magazines, reading, watching, and of course, shopping 
for clothes/beauty. Also spending time in Austin with my sister has been my favourite thing this semester and 
I've been soaking up some ATX vibes which might just be the catalyst for this little endeavor. Whichever way, and 
for whatever reason, I've returned. And I'm feeling excited. 

For my first Little favorite, I give you the featherluxe® feather hair extension.
I got one in the beautiful 

and one-of-a-kind ATX. At Mana Culture. Of course I went to the boutique for the feathers (the girl who does them is
 really just using space at the boutique) but I was blown away by the unique, handmade jewelry they had, as well as 
clothes and shoes.

I love my feathers. You can choose from a ton of different colors and types to make a bundle for $20. Completely

worth the awesome feeling of having feathers in your hair, channeling the air element, and looking awesome. 
It's going to be a sad day when everyone starts to get them! So get them soon while it's still cool!

If Only I Lived in a Cold Climate...

Faux Fur Coats.
Always remind me of Mimi from RENT. Therefore, it's a necessity. 

The Youth
this editorial from The Ones To Watch is perfect. I love the whimsical feel. I also love the Archive bustier on the lower right. If I'm not mistaken the rest can be found at the ever applicable American Apparel and Topshop.
