Goodbye 2011! The Most Popular Fashion Trends of the Year

It's the end of the year which means it's time to compile a list (and convince yourself that next year you will be healthier)!  I sat and pondered about the fashions of this year, browsed my catalogue of Style Watch posts, and I have compiled a list of what I believe to be the most popular Fashion Trends of Austin in 2011...

Obsessed With: Leopard Skirt

I am currently obsessed with this vintage leopard print skirt from Splendor, the newest vintage addition to the North Loop shopping district.  The skirt is a size Large but has an elastic waist which means I can kinda make it any length I want depending on how I wear it - high waisted with a belt, or low waisted for a slouchy and longer look.  It works for daytime or nighttime, and is also super comfy.  I've decided that it goes with pretty much everything in my closet.  I'm in  leopard love!

Style Watch: MOSS One Year Anniversary

When: 12-09-2011

It was only a year ago that Austin's favorite designer consignment boutique opened its doors on South Lamar.  I recall snapping photos at the MOSS grand opening party last year and thinking that it was one of the more stylish crowds I had seen in Austin.  A year later at their anniversary party, I got to capture some awesome style once again...

Fun Fashion Find: Igntion Remix Necklace

This R.Kelly inspired heart necklace that reads "And After The Party It's The Hotel Lobby" might be the perfect gift for the girl with a heart (and sense of humor) of gold.

Found at Spartan on South Lamar, $70
or you can purchase online from the designer Erica Weiner's online store

Upcoming Event: MOSS Turns One!

Has anyone else been finding themselves watching that new show on Bravo, Fashion Hunters?  While it's not as painfully engaging as The Real Housewives of _____ (fill in the blank), I find it somewhat interesting in a less guilty way.  Besides the interesting fashion, the best thing about watching Fashion Hunters is getting to see all the crazy characters that come into the store to consign their designer pieces.  When I watch, I can't help but compare the consignment store that Fashion Hunters follows to the Austin equivalent, MOSS.  The last time I was at MOSS, Masha, one of the owners showed me an amazing little off the runway Chanel cropped jacket that an Austinite had consigned.  I want to know who these Austinites are that are buying and consigning awesome designer garments!  Maybe MOSS needs its own reality show...

Anywho, MOSS is turning one year old and they are throwing a party!

I wonder what their VERY (in bold!) special sale will be...

  • MOSS one year anniversary
  • special sale
  • cocktails and sweet bites
  • MOSS
  • 705 B South Lamar

  • Friday, Dec.9th
  • 6 - 9pm

My Outfit: 90s School Kid

What have you been wearing lately in this gross weather?  When it starts to get chilly, I turn to button downs, mostly of the plaid and flannel variety.  I walked into Sugar Mama's the other day and I swear the guy working the counter and I had the same shirt on.  Oh well!

The best thing about this outfit, besides the fact that I'm wearing super thrifty things that came from Goodwill and TJMaxx, is the bag!  This classic looking purse is actually in fact a CAMERA BAG.  It's so genius and one of the coolest things I have ever purchased online.  It's the perfect bag for a fashion blogger like myself who has to look cute while also carrying around a camera.

Some of you may or may not know that I work for the Austin based watch company TIKKR.  A lot of people ask me what I do at TIKKR and, well, that's hard to answer because I honestly do a little bit of everything and it changes a lot since we are a very small company.  But one of my favorite things that I get to do is photo shoots!  We recently came out with a brand new band for our interchangeable watches and I had to figure out how we were going to market this new band in an email.  I wore the watch around for a day and all of a sudden I realized what the dotted band reminded me of and I came up with the idea to make a Comic Book.  I wrote this story, styled, and directed the shoot.  I also got the fun part of editing the photos and making it look like a Comic.  I don't normally blog about my day job, but I was really proud of the final product of this and wanted to show y'all because this is the kind of stuff I love to do.  Bam! Pow! Check it out!
