I see you, Monday! @goop
In The Art of Self Defense, probably the best film I’ve seen so far in 2019, the main character wears his karate belt everywhere, because it empowers him. I kinda feel the same way about my SXSW badge. What an experience! Also pictured: the @goop face roller, the only thing I bought on this trip #faceroller
Day 5! A blur or panels, talks and music: got inspired by the travel tales of @alphajada (do you know about her?!), listened to @amandashaps and gang discuss healthy food trends, saw @koshadillz and @lolakirke perform, and watched the most perfect, singular film #theartofselfdefense can’t wait for it to come out! Plus a very spontaneous @elizabethstreetcafe dinner with Bay Area delegate @meganpapay. Leaving Austin tomorrow full and inspired.
Took some time off on @sxsw on Day 4 to walk around South Congress. Some color was much needed after all the conference halls! But also: panels on the future of wine and meat, @gwynethpaltrow, @aidybryant, the women of @booksmart and the obvious @goop pop up (where, I must admit, I bought a rose quartz face roller)
SXSW Day 3 was both full of FOMO and joy: a fascinating panel on journalism and AI with women from @qz and @washingtonpost, then an uplifting conversation with @newyorkermag staff writers (how do I get to be their colleague?!) @frynaomifry and @doreenstfelix, checking out ‘activations’ and lastly, the parties (Facebook with @toroymoi then @goodomensprime). Today I’m seeing (and wearing!) stars ⭐️ Check out my stories 😜
Day 2 @sxsw: Saw @soledadobrien (she’s so gorgeous! So smart) interview the CEO of @voxmedia, heard @martinoxon talk about TV and vulnerability, had a much needed break by the pool at @thecurrentglobal Innovation Mansion, laughed at the @rottentomatoes panel (where the audience got to yell “Your opinion sucks!!” at folks who, say, hate Finding Nemo) and wandered from a Japanese comedy/nudity show to a Mexican tequila party to a British ‘algorithm rave’. Not tired yet. #sxsw #sxsw2019
Thanks to the stranger who took my picture against the only white wall in Austin, you can now view my SXSW Day 1 outfit
So, @sxsw was kind to me on my first day: I came here to connect to industry colleagues and leaders, learn about innovation and, well, obsess over celebrities coz I’m a human. Today I heard @calm founder chat mindfulness with Matthew McConaughey, watched @hillarykerr and @busyphilipps talk about being a ‘pusher’, saw my faves @justinablakeney and @jengotch laugh about ‘procrasturbation’, said hi to the amazing @heymichellelee of @allure and stopped by @incmagazine and @fastcompany ‘houses’, plus talking local fashion at @kendrascott and meeting creatives from all over. Prepare for more updates, I totally bought into the hype!
Vintage shopping is best done with friends 😜
Sumer must come soon so I can wear all these hues by @aligolden, the most Tel Avian design in the Bay
This weather is not to my liking! Can’t wait to escape to @sxsw next week. What should I pack?
Did you catch my latest for @sfchronicle_style? @santavenetia and @les.femmes.libres are two chic local women-owned brands I fell in love with in the process of writing, and you should know about them!
Ready to watch the Oscars! #oscars2019
Not the right day to start J.Lo’s #10daychallenge #NoSugarNoCarbs @bluestonelane
