The Last Night, Not the Last Time.

Tonight is my last night in Texas and I do not want to leave.
Good times.
Meeting new friends in Dallas, touring the Mavs locker room, Denton.
Cycling along the Riverwalk in San Antonio all day and night.
Finding tea houses and exploring mansions in Houston. Walking miles and miles with good friends and good conversation.
Enjoying the peace in Hidalgo. Roadtripping to Corpus Christi, standing on the edge of the seawall.
Palm trees, cacti and aloe everywhere! Anyone who knows me well knows how much I adore palm trees.
Five weeks have sure flown by :)
Surprisingly, this is the state that reminds me the most of home. Interesting.
I'll be back soon.

Texas Thru Instagram Pt.1

The Internet is not cooperating with me this week, so here's another post from my phone! It's been a while.
Currently chilling in Corpus Christi, browsing art galleries, tea houses, walking along the bay, all while soaking in the endless sunshine and palm trees :)

Toronto Fashion Week Part 1

This post is terribly late, but it's here now!  I will do my best to catch you up as much as possible of all the fun that happened ;)
Toronto skyline from the rooftop of The Thompson Hotel.  Including the Rogers Centre, where our show was held.
Toronto was such a blast, meeting numerous fascinating and creative people during Fashion Week.  Got into some fantastic events such as the Adrian Wu show and the J.Lindenburg after-party, among others.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show and the way it was presented.  The designs first appear complex and unapproachable, but upon closer inspection you realize they are simply, bizarrely wonderful the way they are.  This contrast was expressed between the dreamy forest runway and the severity of the Kabuki masks, all set to Yann Tiersen's whimsical soundtrack for the film le fabuleux destin d'amélie poulain.
Overall, it shows to look past the first impression; to look at details before pulling away to see the full picture.
Kreesha Turner was at the show.
