{Black} Style du Jour

Today was Dogtoberfest at The Domain and we definitely went in style!  Mr. Steven Jalapeño was his usual; an ewok and I dressed in my usual; black.  Black was probably the worst color choice to be around hundreds of dogs that drool and shed since it’s still 90 degrees outside!  So, please disregard how hairy my black dress is. 🙂

{Ask Ashley} Style du Jour

Every quarter I get the opportunity to contribute for Austin Woman Magazine in a column called Ask Ashley.  These are some of my absolute favorite shoots to do because I am able to portray my personal style, just like my Style du Jours, but get published!  In the latest Ask Ashley I focused on Splurge or Steal and compared my look to Kate Beckinsale’s.  We were pretty dead on with how close the looks were and mine was definitely a fraction of the cost!

{Jonathan Simkhai} Style du Jour

Most of you who follow me on Instagram saw the GORGEOUS dress I was wearing at the Jonathan Simkhai event at Neiman Marcus Austin, but I just had to do a full post on it to show how absolutely stunning it is.  It fit me like a glove and I felt like it was one of those meant to be dresses. You know how that goes…

Whilst all of the garment perusing and champagne drinking was occurring I had time to sit down with Jonathan and get a few details on the inspiration behind his collection.  If you haven’t seen his pieces yet, check them out here.  He has his collection in quite a few prestigious locations such as Neiman Marcus, ShopBop and Net-a-Porter.

Originally from New York, Simkhai, was briefly in town to show off his collection and head to ACL for the weekend. After chatting about how amazing Austin is and how I need all of his clothing, he let me in on a few secrets.  The main inspiration behind his collection was a vintage alligator skin cigar box he found at a vintage store in New York.  He wanted his collection to have a classic, manly feel that would appeal to any and every female.  I also wondered… After basing his entire collection on one amazing cigar box; he had to have bought it, right?! NOPE! With a hefty price tag of $2,700 he told me he would rather use that money towards designing a collection, and that’s just what he did.

Check out one of his most popular dresses that sold out on Net-a-Porter in less than 8 hours!

{Green Machine}

This is probably one of my favorite Style du Jours to date.  Only because I rarely wear outfits like this and the furry, green skirt was totally amazing, and a little itchy… But we’ll suffer for fashion, right???

This is my, I am itching all over, face! /

{Dallas} Style du Jour

Today turned out to be pretty amazing; weather wise!  It was about 55 degrees outside when I woke up this morning and realized I hadn’t packed ANY winter clothing whatsoever besides a leather jacket, shorts and short dresses.  I was headed to Dallas for a meeting with one of my favorite Texas bloggers, SideSmile Style, and I HAD to look super cute!!  I had planned my outfit out a couple of days ago and expected the weather to actual cooperate and get a little warmer than 60 and raining.  Thankfully, that leather jacket came in handy and then the sun peeked out and warmed up to 70!

Overall, it was a great day! I always love meeting fellow fashion bloggers and always love trying out new restaurants!! If you haven’t been to Scotch & Sausage, I highly recommend it! AND they allow pets on their patios. Even better!
