On Sundays I Smile - Week in review January 15th

On Sundays I review the past week and I Smile. I share these moments with you.


I'm spending this weekend in Austin, visiting with Grechen and planning the Texas Style Council Conference with Indiana. On my first night here, I walked down to 6th Street for a shot of whiskey and blues in a a tiny dark bar. There was also the best guacamole I've ever eaten, a barrage of stoned hipsters playing banjoes on the sidewalk, and a near-collision with a drunk girl who almost threw up on me - a totally average night on 6th Street, I was told.

While here in Austin I had the opportunity to meet Theresa of Tess Dress. I've never meet with a designer before and I really enjoyed taking a behind-the-scenes tour of her studio, seeing sketches of her spring line, and talking about our shared love of vintage clothing. Theresa was knowledgeable and a real joy to meet. I'm looking forward to working with her in the future!

Yesterday my friend Grechen took me to one of her favorite stores, Moss. Moss is an upscale consignment store, offering things like Christian Louboutain shoes and Prada bags and Moschino sequin and lace encrusted blazers and this absolutely amazeballs Chanel bolero that, at $1250, was a teensy bit out of my budget.

Also spied in Austin: Neon trimmed bags from Theyskens Theory at Barneys. Do want.

This week in thrifting, I hit the sequin motherload. While I was entranced by the floor-grazing pink sequin evening gown shown above, I decided to leave it behind, as I participate in few occasions that call for a floor-grazing pink sequin evening gown. It was pretty fantastic though.

Now it's your turn: What are some things that made you smile this week? Grab my button (created by Kate of Kate The Geek - HUGE THANKS to Kate!) and blog about your Sunday smiles; share your weekly smiles in the comments; or smile just because it makes you feel good.

As I'm scrubbing paint of my dining room table, catch up on everything from Dress With Courage this week:
