Well, so far 2010 is going well! The Year of the Man Makeover launched, and I've won both of my 2010 Scrabble games. On Saturday I went to a dinner party at my friend Emily's house and I met and got to know Byron and Allison. Okay, actually, I had met Allison once before at a pizza place, but I hardly talked to her, so I'm not counting that! I thought they were such a cute couple and the epitome of Austin style, so I had to have a snapshot of them for Adored Austin. This makes Byron and Allison my first street style couple!
They were kind enough to write down where all their clothes and accessories had come from but I lost the paper. I seem to recall that most of their clothes were from Buffalo Exchange and his bag and scarf were gifts. I told Byron that he needed to launch his own Lookbook.nu page. Those glasses! That bag! Perfection!
In this new year, Hubs and I have fully committed to a new church. It's small but we really love it and their vision for the city. Sunday services are pretty casual, and I appreciate that I can still dress like me:
date: 3 January 2010
dress: thrifted F21 (Savers)
sweater: vintage, estate sale
bag: vintage, My Favorite Place (Atlanta)
boots: thrifted Minnetonka (Buffalo Exchange)
coat (in hand): J.Lo
tank (under dress): American Apparel (SXSW flea market)
necklace: courtesy of Accessorize.com
I got a pretty raw (but honest) question about my sense of humor on my formspring this morning.
Q: Why do you want me to ask a question, if your going to give lame off the wall answers instead of the truth.
My answer was not the most kind or graceful answer-- in fact, it was a knee jerk reaction, but I do have some goals for the new year (neé resolutions) that include being more kind and loving. But something that is not a goal for 2010? Toning down my sense of humor. I'll be nice, but I can't promise that I'll be serious! Besides, like 90% of the time I feel like my life is a sitcom.
