Its perfect for the beginning of Fall in Texas. The color screams Fall, but the cut makes it able to wear in the Texas heat! I’m really loving the lace sleeves on this one. Its very For Love and Lemons-esque, but without the price-tag, don’t ya think? Also, I’m really into the body-chain trend. You can wear them with swimsuits too…. sooo hot. Here’s all the outfit deets:

Clothing Emergency ft. Free People, H&M, and Forever21

So, on my way back home (to Dallas/Fort Worth) from Los Angeles (Click here to see the coolest things about LA, according to a future-resident), I decided to deplane a little early in Austin, TX to go to the X-Games….. which was a totally spontaneous and exciting decision. The only problem: I’m a diva, which means I always check my big-ass suitcase, which means all of my belongings were in Dallas.. and I was in Austin with only a purse, two pairs of shoes in my carry-on tote, and exactly one outfit.. what I wore on the plane.

At this point, as you can imagine,  I had a little bit of bargain shopping to do. I headed over to the closest shopping complex in ATX [The Domain] and went directly to Neiman’s. Okay, thats not the bargain part.. but I’m addicted to Chanel makeup and I can’t stray from my loyalty to those products. The lady at the makeup counter totally hooked me up [and became one of my best friends] and gave me a full face of makeup, my essentials [here, here, and here] and a ton of samples of cleansers, moisturizers, perfumes, etc. Extremely helpful considering my situation.

Then, I needed clothes that weren’t going to cost me five bajillion dollars for a weekends worth of outfits. So I hit up Free People [favorite], H&M, and EVEN Forever21 [<– I was actually pleasantly surprised with what I found here.. usually not my style]. These stores sold clothing that ended up being perfect for the X-Games.. super light and airy for the sauna that is Austin, Texas.

These outfits were perfect for an event like the X-Games.. especially for the concerts. Basically each night consisted of idiots throwing their beverages around the crowd and bumping into everyone else, and these clothes held up nicely. I also wasn’t too concerned about them getting ruined. So, next time you are attending a festival, outdoor concert, etc. stop by a store like Forever21 or H&M and invest lightly in some cheap, trendy pieces.

OH:: and the X-Games were SO badass. I hate to admit it, but Kanye West’s performance was absolutely incredible.. Yes. I said it. He was really good. And yes, I kind of hate myself for coming to that conclusion.
