Let's just say it, Austin is not known for fashion, food yes, fashion no. I should have known that it wouldn't be like Dallas of course because the culture of the city is completely different. However, I never expected it to be that bad!
I could describe it as pretty much handing out coupons for stores in the mall and the only runway show I saw was in Dillards where the store associates modeled the shoes that are currently for sale in the store. Nothing new, no up and coming designers, just Sally from sales rocking some Gianni Bini wedges.
Even though there was no networking, I did get to see some old friends and enjoy a Cappuccino overlooking the lake at Mozart's.
Before I headed home, I had lunch with Jen at the Blue Dahlia and it was delicious! I highly recommend checking it out if you're in town. And after you eat, head next door to the adorable shop Take Heart.
I loved all the raw wood displays and the simplicity of the shop.
We chatted with Nina, the owner who was so cute and sweet and I found these adorable handmade ceramic catch-alls.
They will be perfect on my desk!
Be sure to check out Take Heart and say hi to Nina! Tonight is the first Mid-Century Modern home tour for Historic Tyler and I can't wait to go see one of Tyler's Wilcox homes. I'll be sure to take lots of pics and fill you in tomorrow!
