A few months ago, myself, along with a few friends of mine, ventured about eight hours to the west Texas town of Marfa. It was a fun mini-getaway and full of desert wanderlust and plenty of locations to do photo shoots. We stayed at the historic El Paisano Hotel, where legendary stars: Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean and Rock Hudson stayed while filming the 1956 movie Giant. I highly recommend staying there while in the area, plus they offer a great breakfast.

We spent two days exploring the area including: Chinati Foundation, the Prada Marfa installation, downtown Marfa, Tumbleweed Laundry and Frama Coffee Shop, Do Your Thing Coffee Shop, Ballroom Marfa, Rule Gallery and Marfa Book Company. We also had no shortage of kewl instagram-worthy murals.

Huge thanks to the lovely Sofia Emm for the photography. Be sure to also check out her work HERE. If you’d like to see my snaps of the trip, check out my Instagram HERE under #CaptureMarfa. Or check out the full lookbook!

Brands included in the shoot: Curated Cotton, Big Bertha’s Paradise, Marci Rosenberg Collection, Darylynn Eyewear, LA Hip Threads, Eado Vintage, Born Again Vintage, Debutante Clothing, Matty M, Melissa Velia and My Flaming Heart.

Mopeds and Wanderlust

Yesterday was the inaugural Villa Wanderlust event in Midtown (Houston). It was of course humid and in the 90s. I decided to finally wear my vintage floral halter jumpsuit from Top Vintage LLC. Despite it being polyester, which is known to be HELL in the heat, was actually fine (although maybe it was because this was a skin-bearing halter…). I also paired it with my white clutch from California-based Leoluca handbags and vintage, thrifted burnt brown woven slingback sandals. My blogger pal Shasie and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and the overall outside decor of the event’s venue- Wired International and were able to get some photos with clever backdrops, including a vintage moped!

#BiscuitPaintWall

The #BiscuitPaintWall is located in the trendy Montrose neighborhood of Houston. The wall is actually a part of the Biscuit Home retail store and has been drawing photography enthusiasts for months now. I had the opportunity to visit the popular photo shoot spot with one of my favorite local photographers- Brock Lawson, who indeed created some photo magic! I wanted to show the versatility of a vintage petticoat, so I took a white petticoat and thought that the Biscuit Wall’s unique and colorful theme would make for a perfect backdrop. All it took was a little fabric manipulation and some safety pins to turn the simple petticoat into an avant-garde dress. I also added a minimal baseball cap shaper that I thrifted awhile back, as a complementary accessory to the dress. The heels are H by Halston for Bakers.
