Last week I traveled to Vancouver (somewhat last minute) to help orchestrate several shoots we had planned for Tomboy KC. It was freezing and rainy (hence the beanie), but we were able to pull out some majorly cool stuff despite Mother Nature’s attempts at spoiling our fun. I spent the weekend dressed like it was February (Spring, are you on your way?), but it was nice to get some final use out of my Stuart Weitzman 50/50′s that I finally broke down and nabbed during Fashion Week. Be sure and keep your eyes glued to TKC for upcoming features on some seriously talented individuals with sick style.

In other news, Charlotte Dellal (better known as Ms. Olympia herself) also happened to be in town and we joined her for a little dinner hosted by The Room at Hudson’s Bay immediately on arrival. I must say, I have a major girl crush.

I bought a backpack

Calypso-Striped-T-Shirt-Sty Zara-Gold-Slide-Sandals-Sty Elizabeth-and-James-Backpac Zara-Sandals-Elizabeth-JameWhen I was packing for South by Southwest, all I could think and talk about was how much I wanted a backpack. Like really wanted one. Call me crazy, but I am really loving the return of some of these 90′s trends. As my BFF says, from here on out you can just call me Lisa Turtle. With my decision to turn 2014 into 1994 made,  I scoured the internet, researched the backpack styles on the market and their price points and then called it quits. My search had taken too long and there was no way I would have it before I left. So I scrapped it. But before you get too upset, the story doesn’t end there. As luck would have it, while in Austin, I happened into the best Last Call known to man and ran across this Elizabeth and James number (the EXACT one I had had my eye on in stores). What in the world was this bag doing there? What was this if not fate? Needless to say I nabbed it at over 50% off and left the store feeling pretty good about myself.  I’m still confused, but who am I to say what gets sent to Last Call.
