Friday Favorites, vol. 48

1. dance parties Whether spontaneous or planned, the very best cure for the blues.

2. clothing swaps Simultaneously score fab new things and purge your closet. Win win.

3. composition books

4. street style blogs Some of my faves include Urban Weeds, The Sartorialist, and Copenhagen Street Style, which is now closed...(sniffle).

All of these inspirational sites made me want to start my own street style blog to showcase the unique style I see every single day in Austin.

5. fashion shows

You may have detected a theme here. This weekend is the first, fabulous Texas Style Council Conference, dreamt up and organized by my dear friends Indiana and Grechen. Nathan and I are proud sponsors of the event! We'll have a photobooth at the dance party on Saturday Night at Bo Concept on 2nd Street. The party is from 7-11 and open to the public! ($5 at door) On Sunday, there will be some amazing panels (featuring our lovely and beyond talented friends Kendi! and Bryan!) and I plan to take along my trusty comp book to take notes on everything the speakers have to share. The weekend kicks off with a clothing swap tonight and concludes with a fashion show on Sunday night. I can't wait to meet new friends and take lots of great shots for the Texas Style Council AND for my street style blog.

P.S. Next week we'll be shooting some street style coverage for SXSW so be warned. If you look fab, we'll find you. Threat or promise? You decide.

Everybody, Everywear: Polkadots (otherwise known as My Friend Linda is a Genius)

You may already know my wonderful friend Linda from The Auspicious Life. She's not only terribly clever and cute, she's one badass teacher. I know firsthand. We were lucky to have her as a teacher at my school before she moved away to teach in Portlandia. Anyway, Linda emerged on the style blogger scene a while ago with her personal blog, and then she came up with this insanely good idea. What about a style blog that shows how everybody everywhere styles a specific piece of clothing? She calls it Everybody, Everywear. Genius, I tell you.

Well, this month's challenge is polka dots, which are near and dear to my heart. I realize I'm not a style blogger. But what the hell? Here's how I style polka dots. (Keep in mind this is only one of many polka-dotted skirts in my closet.) See how everyone else styled their polka dots on Everybody, Everywear.

P.S. The Texas Style Council Conference is THIS weekend! Who else is giddy as a bright-eyed tot on Christmas Eve?
