that's what she said

you guys didn't know i could look so good, huh? you wanna know my secret? well, i don't think that would be fair. but i will say that merl took some pretty rad photos of me on our trip to austin. i literally couldn't post these fast enough! she's pretty much a flippin genius. and i love that she named these photos '70s model.' makes me blush EVERY TIME!
so these were taken on a break during the conference day of TxSCC. the weather had been so very warm the day before, but sunday was cloudy, windy, and a bit cool. perfect time for me to whip out the LEATHER shirt i bought while shopping on congress ave. seriously, i do believe this thing was made for me. and the best part was that it was on the clearance rack. 50% off. heck yes.
i STILL can't wrap my head around how awesome that weekend was. truly spectacular. will you guys promise me that if you weren't able to make it this year that you'll be there next year? please? you won't regret it.
and i wanna give a shout out to tree and kimball! yes, you were represented at a blogger conference. does this make you want to blog????????

You are so pretty anyways, but Merl definitely captured a different tone in your photos! Her photography is off the chain:)

And that leather shirt looks so good on you. Especially the way you mixed it up with the black dress.

**And hopefully I'll be able to make it next year.

You DO look gorgeous! And yet, I'm pretty sure this is exactly what you look like in real life. Merl is an excellent photographer: she showed the world how pretty you are to people who see you in the flesh. :)

I'm still obsessed w that leather shirt. YAY for the sale room!! Well, I guess it was more of a hallway...

You are so beautiful! Geez! You really do look like a 70s model. What awesome photos.

And the leather shirt is just too much! That's definitely one of those pieces whose novelty value somehow just makes it the coolest thing ever.

I've missed reading your blog! I'm happy to be back in the game :)


Amanda said...

Ahhhhh. That leather (!!!) shirt is just perfect with your oxfords.

You look so pretty in these photos, i especially love the last one. The TxSCC sounded amazing. I'm glad you guys all had fun.

LOVE. Your outfit is amazing. Black and brown combos can be so chic when done right, and this is very right. However, I am CRAZY obsessed with your hair in these shots. I am going through a weird hair transition right now, and I miss my big curls. I may just stare longingly at your head for the next month or so until mine come back. Please don't be too weirded out.
