Weekend Links: Houston, We Have a Problem!

Friday, September 25, 2009

You know how I said I was finished with posting New York Fashion Week pictures? Well, I couldn't resist posting these style photos. It would be selfish of me to keep these to myself... From the Preen Line party at the Soho Grand...


Lynn Yaeger, fashion writer, style icon. Love her so much. I saw her at most of the shows I attended. And she was yawning at Erin Wasson. LOL.




Fabiola Beracasa, who apparently writes for Interview now, huddled in a fashion sandwich with an unknown beauty and the designers for Preen.

By the time most of you read this, I will be on a plane, headed to Houston for the weekend. Why Houston, you ask? Because it's probably the furthest you could get from the buzzing metropolis that is New York City. I'm feeling a little burnt out from Fashion Week and my dayjob, and in need of some serious R and R. Rain was forecast for Miami and New Orleans and since the Mr. and I have friends in Houston, we decided to go there. Anyone have suggestions for things to do, places to see? The Mr. and I also finalized plans for our five year wedding anniversary trip next month: two weeks in Tokyo and Thailand. I am dreaming about all the food, shopping and spa treatments our trip will yield as I type... Ahhhhhhhhh. It's time to relax.

Hope you enjoy one of the first weekends of Fall, and if you have time, please visit these weekend links:

Style Bite just posted some of my guest editor picks or "bites" from Opening Ceremony. Check them out. I think I'm ready for Fall right now!

I am very jealous of the bloggers who got to attend London Fashion Week. Check out Street Style London for some amazing street style and Wolf Whistle, among other fashion blogs for coverage!

The Swelle Life is giving away a Parisian inspired top from Supanya. Deadline is this Sunday. So enter now!

Savvy Mode is giving away a black diamond pendant. So awesome. Enter here!

Carlotta My Way is giving away amazing skincare. Check it out!

And if you're just catching up on Dream Sequins, you can catch:
An Award!

I want to thank the lovely Haute Shopper for bestowing a "Divine" award on my blog. She has been studiously profiling boutiques around the world on her blog, and I love visiting for my vicarious thrills.



The name of the game is to list five guilty pleasures in life. What are yours?

Mine are:
(1) TV shows (Mad Men and Glee top my list at the moment);
(2) A deep and abiding love for wine (especially of the bubbly variety);
(3) Spa treatments (although I've been so busy that I haven't had as much time to indulge as much as I would like);
(4) Twitter ;) and
(5) Online shopping.

I would like to tag the following five bloggers who are MY guilty pleasures at the moment (to borrow the phrasing from Ms. Haute Shopper):

Ciao Chessa! (she's just awesome, alright?? a talented photographer)

Lady Lunacy (another amazing photographer and her blog is just amazing- check out her NYFW backstage shots- GORGEOUS)

vitaMinn style (she is oh so creative and divine with her style)

Nini Style (OMG this girl recently rocked over the knee boots like crazy and inspired me to try them out myself)

alixrose (we recently hung out at Fashion Week and I already miss her!)

What will you be doing this weekend??

Okay, D, this is a pretty weird coincidence. I didn't really know what Preen was, but @ London FW I kept running into a woman - a designer. We had spoken the first day at her exhibition booth, about doing some fashion shoots, and when I saw her again I said what is her name and I could have sworn she said 'Preen'. So I've been googling Preen while trying to get all this other work done, and my friend has called from NY & will call again in a few minutes. God knows why I decided to take a break and click on your blog to relax, and there's that Preen thing again!

Now I'm thinking maybe she said Reem??

Anyway, have a great time in Houston. Haven't been there in ages so can't help out on that front, but safe trip.

xoxo

dot said...

alexkeller said...

corrie said...

Aw, thanks lady! Have fun in Houston. I went there once and I'd have to say the best part was the Mexican food. Biggest margaritas you've ever laid eyes on. "Everything's bigger in Texas" is completely true.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Always spotted Lynn Yaeger at Watanabe front row seat...she is as interesting as the show most of the times... xo*

Taylor Sterling said...

I wish I could have gone to London fashion week, NY was amazing but London would have been a dream.

la petite fashionista said...

nookie said...

Oh and at least hubs reads your blog. Mine reads the comments...and *ocassionally* the posts...

kpeach said...

I think Lynn is my hero and thanks for the Friday procrastination links:) xo

The Haute-Shopper said...

Hahaha... love the fact Ms. Yaeger was yawning at E. Wasson! I can kinda understand her ;-) Have fun in Houston! I've never been, but the hubby has traveled through Texas and actually quite enjoyed it (I'm guessing the steaks played a role...). Very cool you're going to Thailand and Tokyo. I really want to visit the latter again, haven't been since I was 6 years old, but never really appreciated it as a kid (besides all the Hello Kitty merchandise). I'm heading to Tunisia, so fingers crossed I'll find some great markets...

The Socialite said...

Great pictures! I loooove Mad Men as well! ;)

I'll be relaxing this weekend. i need a long nap!

Hope your weekend is lovely!

lisa said...

Have a great time, Dream Sequins! You definitely deserve some R&R after all the hard work you've put in this NYFW.

Gabbi said...

I love Lynn Yaeger's photo the most! Wish I had the guts to wear hair and makeup just like that.

Have a wonderful trip!

Francie. said...

im not sure i've been thrown onto the twitter bandwagon yet, perhaps soon... Ms Yaeger, what a trendy!!

Have fun in Houston! We want a detailed report when you get back! Unfortunately, it's been more than 11 yrs since I went so I'm no help there.

And super thanks for the award! What a very nice surprise! You really made me smile this morning when you told me about it!!
