I was lucky to spend a weekend in San Miguel de Allende two weeks ago, with Farfetch and LA based clothing label Haney. Mary Alice Haney is a red carpet stylist turned designer and spending the weekend wearing her Studio 54 inspired party dresses was an absolue blast. Just check out the selection on Farfetch right now! I have been going to San Miguel de Allende for 15 years now and this trip brought back so many fond memories, and experiencing the city with some friends who had never been there before made it feel extra special.
I have been looking at menswear a lot more lately, and I really enjoyed spending time looking at the recent menswear collections and taking notes for myself. Here are some of the shows I most enjoyed. I really loved Lemaire’s menswear collection best of all (not just because I am a massive Can fan). I will be trying to interpret the look on my own for the coming months!
CELINE: L.A. Glam Rock
Isn’t it great when you find something not too expensive that reinvigorates your wardrobe? I got these Mango pants on ASOS. They were $66 with the sale they had. I’ve been wanting wide leg pants for a long time but I couldn’t settle on the right pair. I like that these are black because they can go a bit more rock and roll. I wore them one of my all time favorite t-shirts. This is a Billy Ray Cyrus t-shirt I found over a decade ago, and I wear it all the time in real life but never on my blog for some reason. It feels relevant with Old Town Road mania right now!
These pants are sold out, I am sorry to say! But I looked online for another cheap alternative. Check out these H&M wide leg jeans, they look really similar!
I got this pale yellow wrap dress when ASOS had their 25% off sale last week. I am so glad that I got it, the puckered lightweight fabric is perfect for the balmy summer weather and I really like the empire waist and swingy shape. I had a birthday dinner for my best friend at my house this weekend and I wore this dress. It was so nice to have something pretty to wear that was so comfortable and breezy. I wish this dress was available in more colors. I would buy it!
I always get questions about these shoes everytime I post them. They are L’Autre Chose, and I got them on sale last year from Yoox. Here are some similar styles, since these shoes are no longer available. I love a low mary jane heel.
Good morning! Just a little PSA…the Net-a-Porter summer sale has started and also, ASOS is offering an extra 25% off all purchases right now with the code SPRING4IT. Fun! I am dying over everything Molly Goddard and Cecilie Bahnsen on the Net-A-Porter sale, personally. Below are some more of my top picks!
Some swingy dresses from Molly and Cecilie and Jacquemus…
- Jacquemus pink swing halter dress
- Cecilie Bahnsen velvet swing dress
- Molly Goddard ruffled linen dress
- Molly Goddard ruffle daisy halter dress
When I posted this picture on Instagram, a lot of people messaged me asking how I did my hair like this so I thought I would show you how. You can watch my IGtv episode to see how I did this hairstyle and read on below to break down the products I like to use and why. I have had a lifelong obsession with big hair. Maybe it’s because I am from Texas, maybe it’s because I am obsessed with sixties hairstyles. Probably it’s a little bit of both.
My hair texture is actually very fine and quite straight, so it takes a lot of products and tricks to make it big and voluminous. Here is what I use to cheat big hair.

I am feeling excited about summer this week and I’ve been doing a little shopping to prepare. I am looking for silk tops, cute boxy jeans, strappy sandals, and for new scents too. It gets so sticky and hot here in Texas, I am trying to look for lightweight clothes I can pair with killer jewelry like this Chanel chain belt for impact!
I feel like I’ve been getting a lot of cosmic signs from the universe lately that I need to spend some time thinking about Elvis, so I have been watching a lot of Elvis movies lately (and reading Elvis biographies and listening to Elvis and music tangential to Elvis). Elvis was extremely stylish, impossibly good looking and could wear clothes like no other rock star really ever could. Most of his movies revolve around him being surrounded by extremely hot babes, so there is plenty of fashion inspiration to be found in them. I probably will be doing more than one Fashion in Film feature on Elvis movies for this reason.
As I was perusing his filmography one day, I stumbled on the trailer for Tickle Me (1965). The trailer tries to sell you on the idea of Elvis as a champion rodeo rider (saloon crooner by night) but you don’t get to see him ride a horse or a bull at much at all. That’s because this is really a movie about Elvis working on a weight loss ranch for models and celebrities.
When I was watching the trailer for Tickle Me, I thought to myself “Why on earth is there a remote ranch populated only by beautiful young women in bikinis and Elvis?”. That was a silly question! Of course, it was a weight loss ranch, and it is explained early on that this weight loss ranch is for models and celebrities only. So a weight loss ranch for women who don’t need to lose weight at all. Makes sense. It’s a perfect excuse for Elvis to be surrounded by perfect 10s.
There is some business about buried treasure and a haunted hotel with some Scooby Doo level hi-jinks. Jocelyn Lane plays Elvis’s love interest and she is adorable. There are two scenes where she wears chic pajamas and one scene where she wears a to-die-for split orange and yellow dress. Elvis wears all these fantastic pastel western shirts and pants, and no one could make them look as good as he did. At the ranch, they drive these cool pastel Jeeps to get around. This was a movie Elvis made in a hurry to pay off some debts to the IRS and it shows, but you know what…it’s still a really fun movie! All of the musical bits were great, Elvis really inhabits his persona in these. One of the early scenes where he sings at a saloon and drives all of the women wild to the chagrin of their male companions is probably my favorite. I think what I most enjoyed was that this was a movie made on the premise of Elvis working at a weight loss ranch for models and celebrities, a premise so absurd and delightful that this movie could not possibly disappoint me.
Tickle Me (1965) can be rented on iTunes or Amazon for your viewing pleasure.
