tattoo style.

I got my first ever tattoo last week in Dallas, TX. It is something I've thought about for 20 years... I wrote about it, shared about it, and suddenly it was the right time for this rite of passage. I knew I wanted a retro, round, very vibrant and colorful design to match my aesthetic... this is a piece of art that I will wear forever and it had to be right on! I traveled to see friends and work with an artist with 20 years of experience that I trusted. It hurt like hell, and the process was more complicated than I realized, but I'm so happy with the result!

While I pulled from lots of things, this design came the closest to articulating what I wanted:

Dallas!

I visited my dear friends in Dallas this weekend, my first time really experiencing the big city, and had a blast. Went to a swanky holiday party, out on the town, and ate some delicious food. The weekend called for a bit more upscale dressing than bumming around Greensboro, and I was up for the challenge. This is my very first LBD! The fit is not bad for having zero time for alterations. It has a sexy gold zipper all the way up the back too! I am wearing my Grandma's beautiful chartreuse pearls and clip on earrings Happy I love this rusty red blazer as well - it needs to come out to play more!

holiday partyin'

What I wore to my work holiday party- a semi LBD, wool with flecks of all colors ... love this dress and feel so grown up in it, but its pretty hot and I've only worn it a couple times!
