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!

In celebration of their recent launch at Costco last month, the kind folks at Matty M sent over a pair of leggings that are now available at the wholesale retailer. The durable and affordable leggings are made in the USA. I chose to take them on our adventure to Marfa, where I paired them with a vintage ethnic top and a vintage silver ethnic necklace. I also added a vintage gold sequin jacket and vintage evening heels for a more “twilight bohemia” look. The leggings fit like a second skin, while also creating a slimming waistline. Not all leggings are made this well, nor are you able to comfortably dress them up or down. Affordable, name-brand, good quality basics that are available at Costco?! Sign me up!

Purchase the leggings HERE.
