Wowee, what a trip. Had a nice quick short get away with my gal pal Shana to Austin, TX. We met up with my British friend Scott who just moved there, so it was a real treat!
That place is no joke. It is indeed the vintage mecca of all meccas. I was unable to photograph it all, as a lot of stores in Austin don't allow photography in the stores. I was able to get one blurry picture of Shana in this amazing mint condition black cocktail dress wih ostrich trimming on the bottom. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it was such a steal at $40!
That kind of dress would have sold between $300+ easily in LA or NY..or any fine high-end vintage store. Good finds over there, geez.
Amazing stores to check out: Roadhouse rags, Thrift town, and a lot of stores on Congress street-most especially 'Prototype.'
Lots and lots of eating. If you don't know me by now, I simply love love love food, right next to clothing/fashion. Who doesn't? Did a little bit of partying at the Beauty Bar over there, that was fun. Lots and lots of eye candy. It really is the live music capital of the world. We we're able to catch the band "cribs," and the front man of Moldy Peaches' new band. Pretty cool. :)
Anyway, I'm out. More to come soon. Have a good week ya'll!
