This past Friday we celebrated the end of Ivonne’s singlehood at a restaurant that was so breathtaking its patrons needed oxygen tanks. Seriously, there was a man on oxygen a few tables over from us and everyone there was at least 40 years our senior. We know where it’s at.
I wore a simple black strapless dress and a boutonniere I crafted for all of us for the occasion. Nothing says party like matching ribbon flower brooches.
I scored these Lucite pumps on eBay and I got the bright pink pedi with Ivonne at the Aveda Institute.
The food and the company were both excellent, plus we looked super cute. Best wishes Ivonne!
Last Sunday Ivonne and I had our makeup done at The Body Shop as part of a beauty event at the Dallas Galleria. It was awesome. They have a new makeup line that is seriously gorgeous. Shalini Vadhera did our makeup. I wish she could come over and do my makeup daily. Or I could come to her. I’m flexible. Let me know what works for you, Shalini.
I wore a vintage hat-type thing that I scored in Canton for $5. The lace top was my Grandma’s and I wore floral shorts from Urban Outfitters. I foolishly didn’t get an outfit shot, so here’s a super-attractive photo of me talking where you can see my clothes:
Here’s the eyeshadow palette from their new Brush with Fashion line. The art was designed by a student at the London College of Fashion.
Thanks so much to The Body Shop, Shalini, and Rebecca Levy-Levitt, who invited us to the event!
This weekend I went to the Deep Ellum Arts Festival where there were local artists and bands and jugglers. Yes, jugglers.
I attempted to tie a turban a la The Glamourai, but it’s not as easy as she makes it look. I also might not be able to pull off a turban, but I won’t let that deter me from practicing scarf origami until I have something resembling a turban atop my head. I settled for a scarf-as-headband instead.
I ate a Tex-Mex place called Monica’s that has vegan enchiladas! They were marked on the menu and everything! And they were delicious. These are them:
Even though I feel like we’ve all been sated with Charlie Sheen jokes, this pice of chalk writing elicted a giggle from me:
I don’t know if the spelling was accidental or intentional. I’m not sure if one way or the other would make it funnier.
A few months ago my cousin and I made a trip to North Carolina. In Charlotte we visited the Levine Museum of the New South, which I highly recommend. They have a section that looks like an early 20th century store and they even let you try on some of the clothes, which is amazing because everyone knows the worst part of museums is not being able to touch the stuff.
We also went to Asheville, which was adorable. And delicious. Really good food. It’s a vegan paradise.
This super-classy establishment was right next to our hotel. Asheville is all kinds of charming.
This used to be a sunflower.
