our lamar store in austin, texas is having a really cool event this weekend! in addition to a raffle and fall fashion ideas from our staff, they will be giving away FREE feather hair extensions and showing customers how to put them in their hair! according to our austin fp girls, this is the must-have accessory for next weekend’s austin city limits :)
doesn’t it look amazing with the hair in the french braid?? our austin girls are going to take more photos at the event documenting how to put in the extensions, so stay tuned for a how-to post next week! :)
and if you’re in austin, make sure you stop by our store on saturday between 1 and 5 for the event!
more styling inspiration for you today! we had our stylists demonstrate four ways to wear the lace mock neck top – one of our favorite layering pieces for fall and winter. featuring our lovely web merchandiser as model :)
the lace mock neck adds a touch of sexiness to a casual look of jeans and a plaid button down. i love how our stylists layered two plaid shirts to get a mix of prints! perfect the look with a pair of rad platforms :)
we have some really cool new additions to our vintage loves collection this week! our vintage buyer took ten pairs of 1970s and 80s round-toe western boots to upstate new york, where she worked with woodstock artisans to transform the boots into these one-of-a-kind works of art. our buyer loved these boots because the round toe makes for a better fit, and she wanted them to have the perfect wear and tear look. to achieve this, she and the artisans she worked with used sandpaper and then carefully hand painted each boot with woodstock artist michael r. so that each pair is truly one of a kind.
as she was driving one day, ali spotted this awesome 1940s chevrolet on the side of the road and decided it would be perfect for an impromptu photoshoot with the boots. the rusty, cracked paint and vintage style of the truck could not have made a better setting for the boots to be shot in.
ever since the vogue australia shoot featuring abbey lee with bright pink dip dyed hair, the idea of doing it myself has sat in the back of my mind, resurfacing whenever i saw someone else try the trend. here are some awesome examples that inspired me to say yes when I was asked to be the guinea pig for our how-to video :)
the best part about it is that my ends are bleached now, and when the pink washes out i can try another color. as much as i love the blue and green, i’ m not sure i could pull it off. as a brunette, i’m a big fan of the ombre look in the last pic – brown with blond ends. that might be something i’ll have to try.
