When I wrote my review of Red Apple Lipstick, I got a comment or two on how some were distracted (I assume in a good way!) by what was going on in the background, so I figured it may be a good time to share a few pictures of my beloved vanity.
I spent quite a bit of my time in Austin just wondering around its downtown and south side. There is so much to see and do in Austin and I know I just scratched the surface of a great city with beautiful signage, delicious food, deep history, and fun people.
Not pictured, but experienced was a fabulous burlesque show at Maggie Mae’s which also included a screening of Burlesque Assassins, a highly campy film. Check and see if there is a screening come to you soon! Because if you love burlesque, you’ll love it! Portlanders, there is a showing on March 30th in case you’re interested! I won’t be attending though because I’ll still be in Palm Springs.
I really didn’t get too many pictures of myself during the trip, mainly because I was on my own and didn’t have Patrick to be my personal photographer, and when we did get together at the end of the day, were were often busy and it got dark. Also all photos at The Jackalope were heartbreakingly bad. I’m so bummed I didn’t get a good photo on the giant jackalope, because, in case you didn’t know, I freakin’ LOVE jackalopes. But I did buy a t-shirt though. Anyhow, that wraps up the posts on Austin. I may squeeze in a post or two before heading off to Palm Springs next week.
For the most part, my wardrobe can easily be split up into three sections…dresses & skirts, WWII working girl/Kathrine Hepburn, and cowgirl…today I want to highlight a favorite piece of mine from the last category there, my Mexican blanket skirt.
The skirt appears home-made and I’m dying to try and make one myself. My dad gave me a 70s blanket to use, since there was no way I’d cut up a nice older blanket.
