There is something special about the Montrose area in Houston,TX that somehow reminds me of Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles. I know many people including my mom don’t like LA, but to me LA is home. I’m not going to lie; it wasn’t all perfect when I first moved to Houston. To me, it was just a big quiet city with no character. If you ever been or lived in the Hollywood or Silver Lake neighborhood, you would know what I mean by character. So, even finding a small part of that world here, it makes me a happier girl. I really like the Montrose area, and I think nowhere is as cool as Montrose in Houston! ( If you know any other places, please let me know since I’m still a newbie ). For a change of scenery, my beau and I try our best to go there at least once a week. We love the people there and we always find ourselves talking to different artists. I adore all the little cafes and vintage shops, and love meeting creative people who can teach you something great without teaching you, if it makes sense LOL.
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny Saturday in Houston, especially after days of rain and thunderstorms. We had to take advantage of the beautiful weather to have an outdoor lunch. We went to a very cute English pub called Black Labrador and ended up taking the blog pictures there. For this beautiful day, I felt the need to wear something comfortable yet chic and sophisticated at the same time. That’s exactly the reason why the main item of the look was this pretty dress from Urban Outfitters. The very first thing that attracted me about this dress was the buttons on the A-line skirt. The triangle cutout is placed perfectly where it accentuates the slimmest part of the body, which makes you look skinnier than you are. I probably bought this dress for less than $25 and wore it a million times because it’s one of those effortless chic dresses that you can dress up or down. I set the dress with a pair of black-strapped heel sandals to make it look dressier, and added a fringe bag to make it appropriate for the daytime. For accessories, I wore my Mother’s vintage scarf and stone choker to give it a more 90s look since we are all into it for the past season or so.
What do guys think of the look? I would love to know what do you guys like to see more in the future posts. 🙂
