Falling Slowly

Posted by    |    November 21st, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Fall is slowly creeping in and I’m loving it.  I have so many light vintage jackets and fall is the perfect time to pair them with anything.  I found this top, jacket, and shoes at estate sales and my husband loves to call this my Sgt Pepper look.

What are you excited about pulling out of your closet for the cooler temperatures?

Dressing For a Texas Fall

Posted by    |    November 14th, 2011 at 9:50 am

-MORNING-

During a Texas fall morning you usually can get by with a light jacket and a scarf.

I’m wearing a jean jacket my dad just gave me that he’s worn since the 70′s and the briefcase he bought a week before he married my mom when he was in Hawaii for a military R&R.

-AFTERNOON-

By the time the sun has been up it gets pretty warm.  Take off some of your layers and enjoy the perfect temperature for a lunch on a patio.

I’m wearing a gown I bought from Neiman’s with no reason except I liked it.  I’m dressing it down with a women’s one-piece bathing suit underneath and a j.crew button-up tied on top.

-EVENING-

More then likely it will rain at some point in the day.  So make sure you have a pair of wellies on hand and an umbrella in your car.

I’m wearing my favorite Marc Jacobs rain boots that I got from Barney’s and a huge Nike umbrella.



Now you’re set to properly get by for a Texas fall day!  Please visit Kittens and Pitbulls to see the rest of the pictures from this shoot.

Darth Vader Behind the Mask

Posted by    |    November 1st, 2011 at 3:09 pm

When I put this black formal dress on to take an outfit post, I knew I wanted to dress it down.  I immediately thought of layering my leather jacket, but then had the idea to put a Darth Vader mask on with it.  I threw on some flat boots to add some masculinity and went with it.   (more…)

Fur and Dirt

I’ve had this orange and black two piece fur collar outfit for awhile now.  A co-worker of mine asked if I would include it with my vintage that I would sell and it never sold.  It caught my eye the other day and tried it on and fell in love.  I put my sheer Nanette Lepore lace top on underneath the jacket and stole Paul’s dirty hat to complete the outfit.

These Boots

Being in Texas I feel like everyone has at least one pair of boots in their closet.  These are my one pair from Cavender’s and I’ve had them for years now.  I wear them with everything and for every occasion.  They’re actually extremely comfortable now that they’re shaped to my foot.

I bought two different ponchos on my last trip down to Austin.  I picked them up at my favorite vintage store, Feathers on South Congress.  This hat was from a recent purchase at H&M.

Autumn Leaves

You can’t help but to feel like a woman in this below the knee dress.  It reminds me of autumn leaves and I am definitely craving that feeling as the temperatures drop here in Dallas.

Be a Man

You will always catch me rummaging through my husbands closet when I’m getting ready.  This outfit is all thanks to him.  I stole his Democracy of Nevermind jeans, Penguin tuxedo shirt and tie and paired it with my chain necklace, innocent vintage shoes I found at an estate sale, and briefcase found at a garage sale.

Lash Candy

I have a little secret to share and her name is Patience Manzare.  She is an amazing make-up artist and she’s my friend.  Trust me, I take advantage of her all the time.  From my wedding, to blog posts and even just before we go out to eat.

She’s even added lash extensions to her resume.  Now, I’m not that adventurous but others are raving about her extensions.  And if I were you I would contact her and tell her to give you the Sarah Beauregard discount!!

Check out her site Lash-Candy!


Outfit Post: Gypsy-African-Flapper What?

Posted by    |    October 3rd, 2011 at 12:47 pm

 

I found this dress and necklace at Flashback on my recent trip to Austin, TX.  I always look for prints that you wouldn’t be able to just buy at a mall when I look for vintage.  The hat and shoes I had found a couple years ago at an estate sale.  When I combined them all together I totally felt like a gypsy-african-flapper.

Garden Cafe made for a perfect backdrop to this dress.

Outfit Post: Dynasty

In Dallas there is always a black-tie affair to attend.  It’s always a great idea to snag a gown whenever the opportunity arises.  I found this gem at an estate sale for around $30 and have only worn it once to an Oscar watching party I had at my house last year. (more…)
