And Saving The BEST For Last, Paris Fashion Week.





Louis Vuitton... This is what fashion is all about.  As if Marc Jacobs' own collection wasn't amazing enough, he had to take my breath away with his show for Louis Vuitton.  The escalators, models in pairs, colors, and patterns were all perfection.  Talk about ending Fashion Week with a bang...

Fashion Month Is Coming To An End; NYFW


I always look forward to September for multiple reasons; the cooler air allows me to finally stop profusely sweating, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back, and my entire month is devoted to FASHION, with the 4 most important Fashion Weeks in the world!  Starting in NYC and ending in Paris, fashion comes alive in the most wonderful cities.  From daring street style to the jewels of the runway, my mouth salivates as I swoon over couture.  Here are some of my favorite looks from my favorite Spring/ Summer 2013 shows, starting in NY, and ending in my favorite place in the world, Paris.

Leather Leggings: Night









Leggings, Buffalo Exchange/ Hem-line Blouse, Buffalo Exchange/ Pumps, Zara/ Jewelry, Buffalo Exchange tooth necklace, Pamela Love, Vintage, and Free People Rings.

With the same leggings seen in the previous photos, I put a look together perfect for any night out!  The high-low, sheer-back shirt dresses the leggings up, and I added spiked heels and red lipstick to finalize the outfit!

Leather Leggings: Day











Leggings, Buffalo Exchange/ Shirt, Vintage/ Jacket, Rogue Wave Surf Shop/ Shoes, Steve Madden/ Sunglasses, American Apparel/ Jewelry, Pamela Love, Free People and Vintage

So, as my last post mentioned, I recently found a great pair of leggings with quilted leather detailing from Buffalo Exchange, and if you ask me, every girl should have a pair of leather leggings in her closet.  Since I find leather leggings to be such a fashion staple, I decided to wear them in two consecutive blog posts, showcasing one day outfit and one night outfit.  For my day outfit, I couldn't decide which of my favorite prints to wear; Leopard or Tribal.  This was a major dilemma for me, so I decided to combine the two.  With my leather leggings, I wore my vintage leopard top, and my amazing custom jean jacket from Rogue Wave Surf Shop in Charleston, SC.  Playing with prints is one of my favorite ways to experiment with fashion!

Deciding the location of the shoot was easy.  While trying out various running paths around Austin, I stumbled upon a sight that I found simply AMAZING.  I've already expressed my love for graffiti, so it should make sense as to why I fell in love with a hill consisting of layers upon layers of graffitied concrete.  Each slab of concrete displayed different artwork, and each told their own unique story.  After spending what seemed like hours exploring this marvelous hill, I knew it was the inspiration that I needed for my next blog post!  Enjoy!

Out With The Old, In With The New







Between my internship, job, and travels, I've been super busy this past month, and shamefully realized that I haven't been blogging!  Although I do blame my busy schedule for my lack of posts, I also blame my wardrobe, which seemed to be collecting dust.  With summer officially over (although it doesn't feel over here in Austin), I felt it was time to clean out my closet, and trade in my old clothes that I don't wear anymore for new fall goodies!  As hard as it is for me to part with any belongings in my closet, I knew the time had come.  I brought my oldies into Buffalo Exchange, and with the credit that I got for them, bought just what I needed to start blogging again; fashion inspiration!  I ended up finding two extreme tail-hemmed blouses (a trend that I love and find to be flattering on me), leather leggings, floral wide-legged pants, a bleached silk and leather blouse, and of course, a leopard top (leopard is essential for every season)!  Nothing inspires me like a good day of thrifting!!
