Madewell in SF! (Oh, and I was blogged!)

I can now die and go to heaven. Why you ask? Well, Earlier this week (my favorite store EVER) Madewell opened it’s doors here in San Francisco!! They threw an opening party on Thursday night and it was tons of fun. There were so many stylin’ dudes and ladies there it was insane (which made it very hard to get to the open bar in the back, but my friends and I made it. phew!) I can’t wait to go back and get a better look at everything.

During the party a photo was snapped of me by Stylenik. They posted it, with some other great pics they took at the party. You can check mine out below, and the others here!

I’m wearing a BDG top and ecote belt from Urban Outfitters, vintage Diane Von Furstenberg skirt, asos tights, Me Too shoes from DSW, and necklaces from Nordstroms.

Thanks Stylenik!!

Local Natives @ Antone’s.

One of the best shows I saw at SXSW this year was Local Natives, and unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months you probably (and hopefully) know who they are. Last weekend they played a show here in Austin at Antone’s… and they killed it. Absolutely killed it. I can’t wait until I get the opportunity to see them again!

I haven’t had the opportunity to dress up in a while because I’ve been getting things together for Grad School in the fall, which means my wardrobe as of late has been overly casual and consisted of jeans and t-shirts. Shame on me, I know… I know. I felt super cute that night so I snapped some quick pics. (I’m still learning how to use my camera correctly, so bare with me.)

Austin Fashion Week Announcement Made My Heart Skip A Beat.

Launch787 announced today that the 2nd Annual Austin Fashion Week will take place August 14-21, 2010!

I didn’t get to go last year, mainly because I didn’t have anyone to go with… or the dough for a ticket. I’m definitely not going to miss out this year though! Looks like I’m going to have to put off my move to San Francisco until after this happens. This event gives me hope that I’ll be able to be a designer here in Austin, this city that I love so much.

Here’s the info via their website:
