Sorry for the delay in today’s post, I normally try to get them out early in the morning on Monday’s, but my business has REALLY been picking up and it’s been hard to get these posts done early. Anywho, this weekend was a very good one! Friday went to a party, not much to report there. Saturday night I went and saw How To Train Your Dragon, which is such a feel good movie you have to go see it if you haven’t already! But among the good food, and the good company, Sunday was the real gem of the weekend… I went to the medieval fair! Norman always has a yearly medieval fair and I’ve gone to the last two… possibly three, I can’t remember ha. This year certainly didn’t disappoint and all told I spent about 3 1/2 – 4 hours walking around taking in all of the sights and people. Good fun :). Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Enjoy the pics from the fair!

There was a wedding going on and these people made a sword bridge when they finished. Pretty cool not gonna lie.
And why wouldn’t the dogs have wings?
This guy was just a little too much…
She made my day haha.
Standing in line for home brewed root-beer
Couldn’t pass up a pic with the master wizard!
Ye old mead and apple tart!
Poor dog :(. It reminded me of Alice though ha.

This dryad was kind enough to put down her cellphone for a picture haha.

I was extremely pleased and surprised by this month’s (April 2010) issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly. I can’t remember the last time I flipped through their mag and got so many useful tid-bits from it. Maybe it’s just becuase I’m very much on the spring-bandwagon, or maybe they really stepped up their game on this issue. In any case, I’ve included a few iPhone (excuse the quality) pics of my favorite things from the issue. Enjoy, and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Hands down my favorite pick from the issue- The Lands End Canvas grey chambray shirt. I already ordered mine this morning ha. I mean come on, it’s $60 for this awesome shirt!

I already have a pair of desert boots, but these Calvin Klein Desert Boots kinda rock. And most people just don’t know how comfortable desert boots really are! (I happen to be wearing mine today)

This piece they did over an “updated college freshman look”. I think many should look to it for inspiration. Please take special notice when they say to throw out the sweat pants in favor of these khaki’s.

Speaking of khaki’s. I’m going to be picking up a pair of these these slim-fitting khaki’s from Gap ASAP. Classic certainly seems to be a big thing for spring… then again, when isn’t it?

Priciest clothing pick from the issue, this Marc by Marc Jacobs polo which goes for $150.

Okay maybe I lied, I’m sure the Lacoste blazer is more than $150, but without a price included… who knows :)? I really need to update my Lacoste polo’s, but I miss the small croc, I don’t like this new big one.

I want to get either the Bulova watch or the Michael Kors one… which do you think?

Equestrian Fashion Meets Equestrian Practicality

Posted in Fashion, Life, Trends, Weekend Recap with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 25, 2010 by Me & Marisa

This past weekend I was at a Three Day Event down in gorgeous Southern Pines, North Carolina.  My good friend Kate was competing her horse, so I went down to support and gasp at the crazy things these event riders do.  I rider hunter/jumpers, so we have a HUGE recipriocal fashion relationship with the runways.  If blue is a “hot” color according to a designer, the underside of our hunt coats or show shirts begin to incorporate that “it” blue color.  Very cool… yet more expensive to keep up with than regular fashion (average hunt coat cost is $250, and knowing me and my obsession with jackets, you guys can ONLY imagine).  Additionally, this “breeches” trend makes me laugh out loud.  Designers have been trying to get the pants with the knee patches to catch on, some doing well, others I just wanna be like, no, please, just stop.  Although I was at an event, so fashion is not the foremost importance, it is still cool to see how gorgeous the sport is and how much fashion really copies the “classical sophistication” of equestrianism.

Continuing on with the SXSW recap. Some of my favorite bands I heard while I was there were; The Woodsmen, Memory Tapes, Neon Indians, and definitely She & Him!!! Just going to do pics and comment along the way haha. Hope you’re having a great week, I’m SO glad it’s finally spring. I slept with my window open for the first time in 2010 and the fresh air was so great!

This was like the worst wreck I’ve ever seen, the car ramped the other car… and then they both kept driving.
Kebabs at Kebabalicious 3 in the morning haha. And these girls were awesome!
The only wardrobe shot I took the whole SXSW
From the left; Jahn, Cody, Tyler, Charles, Me  at She & Him

She (and Him for that matter) were great! And she was such a trooper becasue she went on without a sound check and instead of making us wait in the cold she said “Never mind, it’s fine, I’ll just belt it.”After She & Him, Tyler and I went to Aussie’s and had a burger and heard these guys. I forget their names though ha.

Wow! That’s the entire past four days of SXSW summed up into one word. Friday-Saturday I think was perhaps the most jam packed 24 hour period of my entire life and dang was it ever fun!  I got to Austin Thursday around 5:30 pm or so after a 6 hour drive that turned into 7 1/2 after traffic. I got off of the highway and rolled onto 6th Street only to have my brakes on my car complete cut out and to rear-end the car infront of me! Luckily I had slowed down enough that there was no real damage or anything, but jesus let me tell ya, you get your blood pumping when you find yourself surrounded by drunk and high hipsters darting out into traffic when you have no brakes on your car haha. Two hours later AAA arrived to save me and about $1,100 and two days later I got my car back. But that means the whole weekend I spent at the mercy of rides I could find and at one time a bus… But I think this was for the best as it forced me to get out and do a lot of things.

I’m typing this right now Sunday night where I just got home around three and took a little nap till about seven because I was operating on one hour of sleep… A move I don’t recommend for long drives haha. I still feel a little like death, and therefore I’m going to let the pictures do the talking so I don’t ramble and sound stupid :). Hope you had a wonderful weekend, and for those of you who it applies to, Spring Break!

My poor little car being taken away
Savannah and I went to Threadgill’s where Janis Joplin was discovered… and the chicken fried steak was amazing! I see why they call it world famous!I had to get a picture of the raccoon tail hat this girl was rocking
This girl was part of the band Eternal Summer (I believe was their name), the first band I heard at SXSW and part of the catalogue of bands at Gorilla vs. Bear
The Bitters from Canada
The Woodsmen were awesome!

NYC Fashion trip with AIW

Posted in 1 on March 18, 2010 by Me & Marisa

Last weekend I hitched a ride on the bus with the fashion students from AIW and we headed to NYC to meet with some buyers and merchandisers for children’s retail stores.  We had the opportunity to tour WeeKids, BTKids, and Squeeze jeans.  Everyone was so gracious to let us in on the industry inter-workings, secrets, and tips on how to succeed as  buyers, managers, and advertisers of children’s clothing. Pretty cool to be honest. and completely packed with “awww”s and “so cuteeesssss”… i guess baby clothes will do that to you 🙂 Here’s some pics! (marisa)
