Zara faux leather pieces

Even though it is still 95 degrees out, I'm loving (faux) leather looks and snagged the tee above from Zara just recently.  I can't figure out what to pair it with though (besides jeans), any ideas?  Also loving this leather and lace top.

Le Garage Sale August 2012

Made it down bright and early to the Le Garage sale and here are some of my favorite finds:

Shabd silk hand dyed top from Kickpleat.  I've been eyeing this beauty for a while and am so glad I finally got it--the fit is phenomenal and I love the unique print.

I always find a special piece or two at Herff Christensen and this short cardigan caught my eye this time.  Yay for local Austin design!

Etcetera, etc had a massive sale going on and I bought a few fun items, including this colorblock skirt by Australian designer Cameo.  Be sure to say hi to Emma if you're there!

Another store that I always hit up is Girl Next Door.  They stock contemporary labels like Splendid, Vince and Monrow and I managed to snag a black Rachel Pally skirt that is on my fall wishlist! (no picture, I'm sure you can imagine a black maxi skirt ;)

Finally, even though I have my tried and true favorite stores, Le Garage is great because you can always find someone new and awesome such as Raven & Lily--where I got this great necklace made by Ethiopian artisans using metals recycled from weapons.  I love the idea of transforming "something made for harm into something of great beauty."  Please be sure to check them out if you're headed to the sale or take a look at their website.

Remember the Le Garage sale runs today till 6pm and Sunday from 12-5pm.  Happy hunting!

Sales sales sales

It's that time of the year again for mega sales and since I love spring/summer items, it's my favorite sale season.  I've been trying to stick with my wishlist and it's going well so far.  Of course the big test: Le Garage is coming up this weekend!  Here are a couple of items that I snagged from the extra 30% Jcrew sale that I think will work well going into fall.  Today's the last day of the promo and there are some great deals to be had--go check it out!

I am partial to watercolor prints and their timeless appeal.  This dress is at least 40 years old and yet I can imagine a similar print on current runways and magazines.  I've been trying to be super picky about my prints lately, buying for longevity instead of cutesy prints that will be dated in a few years (put a bird on it, anyone?).  However, if I do see anything with a llama on it, all bets are off!

Topshop in Austin

First H&M and now, Topshop!  Our Nordstrom at Barton Creek will be getting in both the men's and women's collections.  Though Topshop is a bit hit or miss for me, I've loved the hits that I've gotten from there and now it'll be fun to be able to browse their items in person again!  Check out more lucky Nordstrom locations that will carry the line here.

(Thanks to fashionism for the tip!)

It wasn't until I got to work that I realized I chose this specific outfit as armor against an anticipated difficult day.  I needed to have all my ducks in a row, ready to do battle, and my outfit was my first line of defense.

ps: sorry this was the only outfit picture that came out.  I was super paranoid that a mosquito was buzzing around me but it turned out to be a poor defenseless plant instead.

Polka dot skirt

This little polka dot skirt was a thrift score from Chicago.  It's made of some sort of silky poly material so it's perfect for 100 degree weather.  It's a bit difficult to be fashion inspired when it's so hot out--thank goodness for AC!

Outfit details
Tee: Madewell
Skirt: thrifted
Shoes: Camper
Accessories: Jcrew belt and locket
