.Busy Bein' Busy.

    SXSW is over (has been over) and I had way too much fun! I had a great little gal friend who took it upon herself to RSVP me for all the hip kid parties and jesus she kept us busy! Free food, free drinks and free shows! The amazing guy she is seeing is in a band that played quite a few shows during the week and had some artists passes that also helped to get us into a tough one...Perez Hilton. Nerd. I know. I will say this though, they had a free photo booth and that right there had me sold! I will eventually upload our little photo strips, hopefully.
    The city was most definitely over run with hooligans, but I enjoyed running amongst them looking for the next free drink! I did end up paying the price for my actions and ended up sick for two days or so, but I can't complain too much. A little zinc, sleep and vitamin c and I was back no problem!
    This morning was also another local fun day full of hiking, swimming and grilling! Lily is still trying to recover from her crazy antics while out at the green belt today. She was one happy little pup! Although, I am a little out of shape (UGH) and definitely needed a nap straight away upon hitting home. Things are great here in Austin and I can't wait to discover even more!

.Gettin' Excited.

                 It's almost SXSW! So many plans for next week! Count down begins!!


.Anthropologie Uncovered.

    One area of Anthro's apparel that sometimes goes overlooked and is sometimes misunderstood is their Lounge wear. I may be a little partial to it seeing as how in my store I am the "specialist" and have free range to merchandise my little room of lovely items, but I really do get behind the product. I always get the question of, "can you wear this out, or is it meant for sleeping?". The way I try to explain it goes as follows: we call it lounge just because it is a little more unstructured and less detailed then the regular apparel in the store, the fabrics are softer and are mostly cotton, but are definitely meant to be worn out! Some are sheer and do need something layered underneath, but the store carries the most beautiful slips and I have made them a staple in my own wardrobe! My main reason for writing this is the upcoming weather and particularly in Austin, SXSW. These chemises are PERFECT for running around town, going to shows and keeping cool in this weather (the pricepoint doesn't hurt either!). Here are some of my favorite pieces right now!

This one I actually just purchased and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I always get really wonderful compliments on it too, but it is pretty much sold out!

  This little chemise is so sweet, but definitely needs something layered underneath!

   I am so excited for this romper to hit stores! It will be perfect for SXSW and definitely a central Texas summer must have!

                                                                                   Happy lounge shopping!
