“Rosie the Riveter” became one of America’s most talked about campaigns during World War Two. The famous image depicting a woman- strong and fierce- clad in a red and white polka dot bandana and mechanic’s jumpsuit, exclaiming “We can do it!” became an icon for helping to recruit women to the munitions industry. The image is still to this day…an iconic part of our history.

I chose to wear my vintage mens mechanic jumpsuit that I found at an estate sale for brunch at the Kraftsmen Cafe in The Heights. I was meeting up with my friend Sofia, who is an amazing local photographer (find her on instagram @itssofiaemm) and Chasmine- blogger at The Glamazon.

After an amazing and tummy-satisfying brunch, we headed outside and did a mini photoshoot. The industrial and somewhat minimal setting outside the cafe resonated for a great photo backdrop. It was here that I showed that vintage mechanic jumpsuits are pretty badass, with or without heels.

KALEIDOSCOPE HOUSTON 2016 is a 3-day Fashion, Art, Music and Film experience presented by a creative collective of partners. The inspiration for creating Kaleidoscope is simple; bring the creative collective that is Houston and surrounding cities, then connect their talents to produce a show that is themed, multi-faceted, and within the city of Houston which will in turn help to boast Houston’s creative economy.

This inspiration led to the creation of Kaleidoscope which highlights and enhances the visibility of Texas established and emerging talent in the Fashion, Art, Music and Film industries.

As one of the nation’s fastest growing cities, Houston is the perfect blend of ambassador for arts & culture. Texas has emerged as an innovative and progressive cultural kaleidoscope.

Kaleidoscope focuses on the expansion of this culture by spotlighting the economic increase of fashion design, clothing merchandising, music influence, visual and performing art, photographic and cinematic film, and a variety of other art and entertainment.

Texas boasts a community of art and cultural assets that create a dynamic economic development in a multitude of national and international markets. Kaleidoscope connects the arts and culture sectors by bridging local firms to the community of artists, musicians, designers, performers, and film industry.

Bringing all of these dynamics under the umbrella that is Kaleidoscope is a step in paving the way to extraordinary through heavy local support. Please join the movement in the new revolution of creative. Kaleidoscope is an alternative consciousness of creative genius.

Lone Star Court – Austin, TX

Lone Star Court Hotel Austin

Whether you call it “An Homage to Classic Americana” or “Rustic Quintessential Texas”… The Lone Star Court is definitely one of Austin’s (newest) and coziest places to stay. The boutique ‘motor court of yesteryear’ inspired hotel stood out when I had to pick a place for myself and “the boy” to stay while visiting friends because of it’s hip decor and retro vibe (and thank goodness for New Year’s specials). The hotel is built like a complex, with a free standing front office; three buildings that house the 123 rooms that surround an open courtyard that is complete with fire pit, lounge areas, pool area and nature; two food trucks and the restaurant/bar.

After the easy breezy check-in, we whisked ourselves to our room on the second floor. After the quick ride up the elevator, we walked down the long exterior corridor to our room. Each room is outfitted with a relaxed porch-like setting, which includes a small table and two rocking chairs. I loved how they brightened the wooden walls with pops of orange in the chairs and the baby blue door. The room did not disappoint in interior design. The bed frame and bedside lamps were very industrial chic, while the sitting nook maintained a relaxed retro feel (I literally could have slept on the couch… it was THAT comfy, in my opinion). Other additions to the room included a vintage full-size refrigerator (well stocked, but for a fee), a large wooden wardrobe, a sizable faux pull-down desk with director’s chair and LATHER body products in the bathroom.

In the morning, we partook of the complimentary continental breakfast that was held at The Water Trough. The hearty breakfast included biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, a variety of cereal, yogurt and fruit, plus coffee, juices and teas.

Overall, I enjoyed staying at Lone Star Court. I thought that the staff was friendly and attentive. The room was clean and met my needs (plus, can never go wrong with cable and wifi). Had the weather have been more cooperative, we probably would’ve enjoyed the patio, food trucks and courtyard more…however there will always be next time.
