  2. My name is Laurin Schreiber and I work for the San Francisco local fashion designer, Effie’s Heart (www.effiesheart.com). I came across your blog recently and was intrigued by your fashion insights and indie designer finds. We would love for you to spotlight Effie’s Heart and showcase our upcoming lines. We have samples available to send to you and more information per your request.

    Look forward to speaking with you

    I love the deconstruct shirt, over skinny jeans with smushy bag and black kohl around eyes. I go for flats with this. Love your taste, Laura.
    If I was rich you would be my stylist.

  8. Hi, I just read your comment about Chloe Dao’s Fall show. I was there yesterday…hope you enjoyed it.
    I think you like fashion in all its forms, so I just wanted to let you know that “fashion week” is still open!:) On November 6th 2009, here in Houston, another company is having a fashion show. The name of the company is FrancescaBachour and the designer and the manager are both Italian. I’m the manager. And I would be delight to have you at my show too.

    I actually got your website address from a girl that you met at the Lot 8 Houston Fashion Week Announcement party! Her name is Ashley Horace. I am a fashion blogger (just recently started) and I was sad that you had already left when she said she met you! I love your site and you are a great writer! It is nice to know more bloggers in HOUSTON!
