Texas & New Beginnings

What Is What down here in the big ol’ state of Texas?

Beyonce Texas

Alright y’all! Your girl has up and moved to the Big Tex, the lone Star State…and I am  ready to get this show on the road. I really wanted to focus on moving to Texas and other very important matters before I got back to steady posting. But I finally think I am settled and everything is almost pretty organized. There are a couple of loose ends here and there…but the blogger me had to tell the OCD/Virgo me to shut the hell up and get to it.

Coming up for the rest of this year, I’ll be exploring what this great state has to offer the fashion world, finding the perfect pair of $500 bucket list cowboy boots, and showing the world my spin on cowgirl chic. What I WONT be doing is falling into stupid stereotypes that northerners have about the south…and namely, Dallas, Texas. No references to 80’s soaps, no line dancing (unless im offered first), and no faux-dirty jeans. I’m quickly learning that this may be the south…but its no small town by any means. There’s much to see and do here in Texas and they even have their own fashion week. I plan to check out the malls, the thrift stores, and some of the flea markets and street fairs…this should be fun. I’m keeping an open mind, which is something I didn’t quite do in Atlanta. Eternal homesickness made me close myself off to everything ATL had to offer and that in turn made me miserable. I vow to not make the same mistake twice. I’m goin’ all out this time, and enjoying the experience.

So far I’ve gotten well acquainted with the Dallas Fort Worth Airport (which is literally the size of Manhattan), realized that Chinese food is NOT a good idea, and found my peace with not being able to see any Eagles or Giants games except on my phone. So far…so good.

The state has inspired me quite a bit! Since I’ve been here I’ve planned an article for you guys on how to dress for bipolar/quasi-constant warm weather. I see that I am definitely going to need to make some adjustments for 80 degree days in november. I’ve discovered that I absolutely must display how I wear warm fall/winter colors in an unseasonably warm fall/winter. I’ll also be writing to you about office wear, and the change of meaning of casual from one region to the next. Texas is bringing some pretty awesome muse-age along with it, and I’ve decided to go with the flow. So stick around to see what I find in this journey. And thanks for sticking around and sticking out thus far!

Public School Gets an A+ for NYFW Fall ’14!

Public School made waves this year with a womenswear debut!

Public School
Designers of Public School Dao-yi Chow & Maxwell Osborne

The wild card this year, in my opinion, was that damn Public School! Their menswear line this year was as expected, coming from a history at Sean John and using New York City as a muse. But the premiere of their womenswear line was awesome! Continue reading
