Snapshots from Austin

austin-motel Last week, I ventured to Austin with old & new friends for Amelia‘s Bachelorette. It was a blast – and it was so good to get back to Austin. Austin is a special place to me because I spent many weekends in college taking roadtrips for concerts and shows in the Live Music Capital of the world. My friend Taylor and I went a few days early and stayed at the Hotel St. Cecilia – and wow. I am in love and want to go back ASAP. Check out some photos from the hotel + South Congress area below.

Zang Toi Sea Island Recap

zang-toi-sea-island_1 zang-toi-sea-island_2 zang-toi-sea-island_3 zang-toi-sea-island_4 zang-toi-sea-island_5 zang-toi-sea-island_6 zang-toi-sea-island_7 zang-toi-sea-island_8 zang-toi-sea-island_9 You may have seen my post here about my trip down to Sea Island for the Zang Toi Fashion Show. As promised, here are some recap photos of the event. A huge thank you to Cloister Collection and Evelyne Talman for reaching out to me to attend this fashion extravaganza benefiting The Coastal Symphony of Georgia. Evelyn Talman was the main host of the event and had a Zang Toi Trunk Show in the days following the preview. A little more about the two stores: Cloister Collection is located on St. Simons and boasts ready to wear designers such as Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, Free People, Jack Rogers, Island Company, Hiho, Lisa Kerns Jewelry (a local jewelry designer) and many more.  Evelyne Talman is known on the island as a go-to for evening and special occasion and cocktail attire. Evening designers include Kathy Hilton, Marchesa, Daymor, Mon Cheri, and Marissa Baratelli.

I cannot reiterate enough how fabulous the event was, and how breathtaking beautiful Toi’s pieces were. This was not my first Zang Toi fashion show (see here), so I didn’t really expect anything less than stunning. Many of the pieces debuted were from Toi’s Spring 2014 Collection – the theme of which was “Ballet Babe”. The show resembled an elegant ballet with hints of ruffles and tulle. The beauty was definitely in the little details – the tulle, the embellishments, and the floral elements, the pastel pinks and blues, etc.

I’m so happy Izzy & I could attend the event together, and it was so refreshing to get to visit Sea Island again. I was reminded of how Sea Island really is the perfect quick weekend getaway from Savannah – or really many places in the South. My mom, grandmother, Izzy, & I had an amazing dinner & cocktails after the show. I can’t wait to go back to visit. The photos above were my top favorites from the entire show, which one is your fav? Mine would have to be the 5th photo. Stunning back. Happy Wednesday! XO, Stefanie

Venessa Arizaga Bracelets

venessa-arizaga-dont-worry A few years back I first saw Venessa Arizaga jewelry on Man Repeller‘s instagram, and I was immediately ob-sessed. Venessa Arizaga makes gorgeous and intricate necklaces, but what I am really drawn to are these fun friendship-esque bracelets. All of these bracelets are under $100 and have little witty sayings – making them such a great gift for a girlfriend! Some will even make you crack up – like this one and this one. I seriously want about 5 of these – and can think of a few of my yoga friends that would love this one. Which one is your favorite?

Jack Rogers D’Orsay

jack-rogers-dorsay Shoes: c/o Jack Rogers // Dress: GAP (old but similar here) // Bag: Celine // Necklace: Loren Hope // Sunglasses: Tom Ford

Jack Rogers is traditionally known for their iconic navajo sandal, but, this Spring they have introduced the Contessa D’orsay flat. These flats are a great transition in to Spring, while temperatures are still not quite “sandal weather”. I just adore this beige and navy pair. I am having a moment with anything navy. Which pair is your favorite?

Weekly Recap

I have been a little MIA in the past week – partially because I came back from being out of town very ill. A two-day stomach bug that made me capable of basically nothing, but I’m back. I didn’t want what I was doing last week to pass by too long without documenting.  Last Thursday, I went down to The Cloister on Sea Island for the Zang Toi Fashion Show. The last time I attended a Zang Toi Fashion Show was here from the MBFW SS’13 Collection. And I must say, this show hosted at The Cloister was amazing – I felt like I was at MBFW! As always in Toi’s Collections, I love the sophistication and femininity of his pieces.  I have more pictures from the runway show soon to come!

Also, while in St. Simon’s / Sea Island, I visited the Tibi Outlet. My entire look at the show was Tibi (top right). At the show, I wore this dress that I ordered from and these shoes. I also scored this dress and love the silhouette! Check back later  for more pictures from this show! XX, Stefanie

DVF + Andy Warhol

Everyone knows Diane von Furstenberg is a fashion icon, but how cool is the Wrap40 celebration? For those of you that don’t know, 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the iconic “wrap dress”. Watch the DVF Pop Wrap + Andy Warhol here. What do you think of all the celebration items? I’m in love.

Army + Leopard

camo-leopard Jacket: Gap // Tee: Madewell // Shoes: Steve Madden // Sunglasses: c/o Warby Parker // Jeans: Rag & Bone/JEAN // Lips: Chanel

Izzy and I, or I really should just say “I”, have not mastered the jumping shots. Partially because I do not have ups. Last time I tried to do this here with tennis shoes on, it was much easier! Anyways, I thought this laid back patterning meshing look was perfect for hump day! I’ve said time and time again I love pattern mixing – leopard + anything, stripes + polka dots, florals + stripes, etc. Keep it interesting. Happy hump day! XXO
