marfa my dear

Pin It
marfa, marfa, marfa! every time i mentioned that i was roadtripping out to california from austin i was told that i absolutely had to go to marfa.  so go i did and boy am i glad.  for starters the drive out there was incredible.  there were deserted desert highways with endless sky, there were teepees, there was prada!  it felt like stepping back in time or onto a movie set.  and you better believe i relished the fact that i was walking the hallowed ground where dame elizabeth taylor and her diamonds once walked while filming giant!  it was an amazing stop and it definitely piqued my fascination with west texas.  you better believe i'll be back sometime soon and i'm sensing some hot springs and some chihuahua desert in my future.  but for now, it's back on the road and onto new mexico!

on me: vintage dress, vintage belt, shoes from urban outfitters.

on me: vintage paloma picasso gold plated necklace, vintage silver cuff, oakley frogskins.

party like a lone star

howdy from the road!  molly and i trekked over to austin to try to do our part to keep it weird and to soak in some local culture.  by the end of the weekend molly was y'alling and yeehawing with the best of them.  we started our tour of austin on south congress and obviously fell in love with everything we saw because let's be real, what's not to love?  from the food trucks to the amazing antiques to the vintage mecca that is feathers, it's a goldmine of cute.  the next day we took on burnet road and guadalupe street and we ended our tour with a trip to red bud isle on lake austin where ghosty proved that despite being a city dog she's got some serious swimming chops.  and we did it all in new vintage duds we scooped up along the way.  i've said it once, i'll say it again, it's all about shopping local!  

the one and only austin motel.

vintage heaven on earth.  go swoon over what alex wore and their latest additions on their blog!

the graffiti says it all, miss you mang!

sadly molly and i had to part ways after austin.  she had to get back to real life and i had to get westward ho once more out on the open road.  i didn't get very far as i decided that our next stop would be san antonio.  blame it on my constant hankering for mexican food.  i showed ryan the sights and tried to instill a little texan pride in him.  after the alamo, some of the best tex-mex in the world, and a little chicken fried steak i think it worked!  next stop, marfa.  gotta keep that texan pride going!

check out the mocs on crockett!
