Okay, when I first pitched this idea to Korin, I was saying, “Hey, let me talk about all of the awesome fashion I saw at SXSW.” Then I started to do some thinking and I realized that I did not see a lot of awesome fashion last week. Then I decided to show off all of the horrible fashion (there was a bunch – check out here and here). But I stopped myself again – you know why? Because while the majority of these women (and not a few men) looked so crazy to me, they probably thought that they looked good. And while I certainly did not agree, fashion is such a personal choice, that it really isn’t up to me to decide who is and is not fashionable.
However, since we’re here and everything, let me show off at least a few looks that worked, instead of embarrassing those who did not!
1. Adored Austin
This is what fashion in Austin when we are showing off for SXSW should be like! Simple, quirky, cute, but not overly ridiculous. I would so own that dress in black and wear it to every cocktail event this year. via
2. Austin Eavesdropper
All of these girls look so great!!! Trust me, this was not the norm last week at all. I love the neon, the skirts, the pastels, the gobs of pearls, the stripes. I just wish that I could see the shoes! But they are so perfectly Spring, I just feel like they can do no wrong. via
3. In Her Stilettos
Okay, so this is not Diya of In Her Stilettos, but Diya has a great eye, as well as a great fashion sense, so I figured we could showcase one of her chosen shots. I love the floaty (polka dot!!!!) skirt, that is kept so simple with a tank and flip-flops. People, this is how Austin girls really dress on our downtime. Not so much with the crazy hair and insane getups. via
