We are friends, neighbors, and obsessed with all things style. Gina designs unique, hand-crafted jewelry and Jennifer practices the art of wardrobe management. It was only natural that they came together to launch a style blog.
I’m having yet another garage sale today (and, again, I am convinced that March is the coldest month in Houston). I’m working so hard on getting my house completely de-cluttered so that the re-decorating project can happen. I’m getting there! We’ve hit a slow patch today and of course I break out the laptop for entertainment. My best friend’s daughter had me look up her uncle’s website, Studio 44. Larry McLaughlin is a filmmaker and film teacher at Crockett High School in Austin. Studio 44 showcases a fictional documentary of a class who sets out to make a feature film. Their goal is to get into the ‘Kerrville Film Festival’ and become famous. These webisodes are hilarious; I’m including the first one below, but you can watch eight of them here.
I went to Larry’s wedding a few years ago. I wonder if he’ll remember me when he’s famous? I’ve been a hand model and everything; wouldn’t that count for something??
Or, are my feathers ruffled? Either way is apropos, in this case.
Last weekend, I replaced the filing cabinets in my office nook. While emptying the files, I came across this image I carelessly ripped out of a Lucky Magazine at some point, so I’m not sure which issue. I do know that file has remained untouched for quite awhile; it’s certainly not new. That image obviously made an impact on me then, but I think I have to love it even more, now.

Paris. Madrid. Rome. London. These colorful ads of Havaianas all over Europe make me smile. Simply brilliant. These photographs give me the major travel bug! Time to get some Havaianas in my fave Spring colors …
Trouble. This site has the CUTEST. Everything. And, good thing for us, there is a great promo going on now through April: 30% off with code: LUCKY09. I am the happy owner of the owl cuff below. Oh, and of this. And, I also love this. Seems like a flying friends theme, doesn’t it?
See? I’m in trouble…
Max Azria runway collection can be seen here. $100 off purchase of $300 or more. Code: SPRING09.
I found this great dress that will definitely take me beyond the daily jeans and t-shirt uniform. This purple asymmetrical ruffle dress is from the Max Azria Runway collection. I love the color and the ease of it! Lucky for me, there is currently a spring promotion of $100 off of a purchase $300 or more on the website. This style was sold out on line so I called the store on Madison Ave and they offered me the sale price, as well.
Here is how I imagine wearing this outfit:
The shoe must be high and probably be similar to the one in the runway shot. I think that the Hermes cuff that Santa brought me for Christmas will be the perfect accessory! Hopefully in a week or two, I’ll be rockin’ the new Charmed Circle 32” necklace I’ve been patiently awaiting (picture to post later). The stones will be the perfect color story for this outfit. I’ll have to work on finding a slouchier belt than the wide elastic one that arrived with the dress. I suppose that belt does hang on the hip if you are 6 feet tall and 100 pounds.
Ok. The dress is at the ready. Now I need a place to go……
