Kicked Back with Sydney

    Après date nightcap, wearing my favorite vegan leather Sydney Brown booties.  Made in LA, the entire pared-down but funky line is made with recycled, eco-friendly materials.  I am wearing the platform boot in plum, $200.  Side note:  I love the idiosyncrasies in the wood, and the fact that each pair is handmade and one-of-a-kind.


    On The Catwalk

    Anyone else a Project Runway addict??  Last night I was lucky enough to have a front row view of creations from very talented designers of seasons past.   The runway show/ party is called FashionXDallas, and it was so much fun spending time with one of my best girls, Brittany (who, incidentally, owns Milk & Honey:  a boutique full of cute, affordable, eco-friendly pieces), and meeting some of the designers. Auf Wiedersehen.

    My look :

    Badgley Mischka blazer cape, available here

    Black faux leather bell bottoms, available here

    Necklace and faux snakeskin clutch are from Brit’s store, which you can browse at MilkandHoneyBoutique.com.


    Chic Boutique

    I absolutely adore the Dallas store Milk & Honey!  Owned by one of my very dear friends who believes that you shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to look fantastic, the store features clothing that often has a boho Cali vibe at a very reasonable price point… And, always, lots of cute cruelty-free options!  Today’s look, all available here:  “Hollywood” faux fur jacket in black, $82, and “Flare To My Boho bellbottoms, $58.


    Oh, You Smoothie

    Amazing (if I do say so myself!) smoothie, made this morning using my Omega 8006 juicer.


    • 1 frozen banana
    • 5 strawberries
    • 5 chunks of pineapple
    • About 10 grapes
    • 2 big handfuls of lettuce
    • an apple
    • half a carrot
    • half a cup of organic dairy free vanilla-flavored coconut milk
    • chia seeds


    Baby, it’s cold outside!

    …Luckily I’m keeping warm in my favorite vegan leather moto jacket from Free People (available here), boyfriend cargo pants by Current/Elliot, and the “Remix” boot from NastyGal.com which features red laces, a 4″ heel, and a padded faux leather ankle. These boots are super comfortable, great for fall/winter, versatile (I’ve also worn them with a little black dress), and affordable at only $88, available here. Woop woop!


    Asheville Exploring

    What is the upside of having a 76-year-old father who fancies himself a vagabond, moving frequently from state to state?   Visiting him.  In this case: getting to explore the chilly, bohemian, and gorgeously scenic city of Asheville, NC.   The cold didn’t keep me down, thanks to my head-to-toe faux leather get-up (a.k.a. “Asheville Tuxedo” ??)

    Jacket: Free People vegan leather hooded moto jacket, $168 (other colors available, and the hood is removable for a dressier look),  available here.

    Pants:  Larsen Grey Hannah and Gracie with faux leather side panel.

    Shoes: Nike Free Run 3 in magenta.

    I am in love with the jacket and cannot believe how authentic it looks and feels. And- if you haven’t been to Asheville, you really should go check it out. Hippie Heaven!

    Give A Damn. Many damns. More damns than anyone.
