No Tricks, Just Treats

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! This year, since the engagement, we didn't have that much time to come up with something crazy. We decided about 2 days before what we were going to be. Plenty of good ideas were thrown out but we had to keep in mind that we'd only have 2 days to prepare. We decided on something pretty vague so that anyone who wanted to join could also be in! Cowboys and Indians! I loved it!

Me and my cowgirl friend (Can you tell she's supposed to be Jessie from Toy Story 3?) hehe

My cowboy! Bang Bang! HAHA

Four little Indians!

I got this dreamcatcher in Ibiza, Spain 5 years ago and finally got to bring it out! One of my favorite souvenirs!

All of these photos were taken at home before we headed out to a block party in our local gayborhood. It was pretty fun, just soooo packed. I wouldn't have minded it but with a group of 15+ people, it was a PITA to get around. Once we found a place to drink, there we stayed and all hell broke loose after that. Lol needless to say, I spent a lot of time the next day in bed. =X

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope everyone is blessed with just treats and no tricks this year! :-)

My costume: Forever 21 low headband, earrings and suede shorts, fringed top from Nordstrom Rack, Steven by Steve Madden 'Intyce' boots, feather necklace from dollar store, colorful feathers from Michaels Arts & Crafts, leather cuff bracelet from Venice Beach, dreamcatcher from Spain, homemade arm cuff thingy

She's country

Forever 21 crochet layered top and necklace, J Brand denim shorts, Roxy suede cowboy boots, Michael Kors ceramic watch, Tylie Malibu hobo bag, Rayban sunnies

It's that time of year... State Fair of Texas! :-) That one time of year you can eat all the fried food you want without feeling guilty! I went on UT/OU weekend, the most crowded weekend of the month, with all the Texas and Oklahoma fans in town. You'll hear fans from rival schools screaming at each other. It's a pain in the rear getting around, but still fun.

All girls in Texas own at least one pair of cowboy boots and this is the most popular time and place to sport them. I got mine years ago, in college, for only $5 at PacSun! Remember that store? Haha! They were marked down from $100 some dollars! I got one pair, and my friend got 2 pairs! Why not, right? I'm now on a mission for some red leather ones (although my friends who are UT fans might abandon me). Yee-haw!

Hard at work :)

Fashion for a Passion is an awesome annual event where artists bring their talents together to give back to a cause. Against The Grain Productions raised over $20k from this event for supported orphanages, their artistic scholarship, and community outreach programs. I'm so glad to be a part of this special event. It feels so good to give back to the community! Please visit ATG's blog to read more!

3rd annual Fashion for a Passion

Kensie white cheetah print brocade dress, F21 nude jewel necklace, Guess pumps, bracelet from LA's Fashion District

Just a preview of ATG Against The Grain Productions' 3rd annual Fashion for a Passion charity event! These are some photos my friend took during the show... I didn't have my camera on me all night since I was working the event (yes, that black wire hanging on me is a walkie-talkie, lol). Still waiting on professional photos so I can post more, especially of the collections showcased. 'Twas a great night with so many different artists coming together to raise funds for Asian orphanages. We are so thankful for everyone's support of our cause! A more detailed update later this week!
