A few snapshots from our little spot at the Austere Magazine Party in Dallas last weekend. We had a BLAST — we made tons of new friends, a few sales, and feasted our eyes on some pretty sick style.

Thanks to the people of Dallas for making the event so memorable. And a very huge shoutout to Austere Magazine for featuring us in their magazine and letting us vend at their amazing shindig.

I may not know Cari Cat’s real last name, but false name or not, Cari is a genuine badass with a versatile style. She hops from one end of the style spectrum to the other without a hitch; she has this incredible knack for fusing her “5 year old tomboy self” with her most feminine looks, yet it keeps a crucial balance. The pieces she brought were all tried and true favorites that you could remix together with ease and get the perfect, simple ensemble for any occasion. And you really can’t help but love a girl who brings her best friend in tow AND a bag of Cheetos for a little photoshoot fuel! Sounds like the perfect balance.  Geena 


THV: What’s your major? 

CC: Fibers (it’s a studio art)

THV: Who/what influences your style most?

CC: I draw inspiration from music mostly male and female artists. I love Alison Mosshart’s style but I wouldn’t say mine is anything like that. I try to stay true to what goes with my petite frame… first thing that calls my attention when shopping is color. From there it’s just a matter of what looks good. I keep it simple for the most part.

THV: Is there a particular decade or era that you feel inspires you more than others? Why?

CC: 50’s and 20’s. I like the drop waist in dresses but I also love the feminine high waist of the 50’s. I can still be a little spazzstic when it comes to dressing up. I’m willing to try anything but I also can’t help dressing like a grown up version of my 5 year old tomboy self.

THV: What initially draws you to a particular piece of clothing or accessory?

CC: Black, black, and more black.

THV: Is there anything new that you’ve been experimenting with lately, as far as your usual style goes?

CC: Platforms and peter pan collars… trying to do the girly thang more often.

THV: Name the perfect get-up that you’d wear to a concert of one of your favorite bands.

CC: My friends’ bands are some of my favorite bands! I mostly go for comfort. A lot of shows I go to are my friends’ bands.. so usually don’t go dressed to impress buuut. High waisted jeans, crop top, and flats. Or a simple dress and cardigan.
