This is what I wore to the Texas Style Council event in Austin Saturday night. Fun people, free drinks = Good times! I really enjoyed the vibe in Austin, even though my mom lives an hour away, I don't go there often. It was very freeing for me, individuality is definitely encouraged and I loved every minute of it.
After meeting up with my partner in crime (if sneaking into public places to change clothes is a crime) we figured out that we didn't have anyplace to change clothes. Where we were staying were both too far away to go back to just to change. So we decided to sashay into a swanky hotel somewhere with bags in tow, change clothes and la-di-da our way on out.
belt: vintage (it's all metal!)
wedges: Steve Madden
What we actually did was pull over because we couldn't find a parking space at a hotel, saw that we were at a hospital and stealthily snuck in to use their restroom. And of course I made multiple wardrobe changes, so we came up with a code knock, code word and backstory as to why were in the hospital to begin with if we were stopped. Reason? Sick grandma. Name of said grandma? Why Grandma of course.
I won some Claire Fong earrings at the Lulu's spin the wheel game!
I somehow lost my card case with my identification on the fricking street and a lovely Austinite contacted me via Facebook and got it back to me thanks to some teamwork by Reiko and Tina of T Minus T Plus. WHO doesn't love Austin???
I wish I had taken advantage of the photo booth more (or tried to be more photogenic, I was clowning around a lot) had I known that the photographer was so AMAZING!
But I did manage to photobomb Erin from Work With What You've Got, I haven't seen her since the summer even though we both live in Dallas I forgot how hilarious she is!
