Editor’s Letter For TRIBEZA , as it is for many magazines, the September Style issue is a big one! Instead of just telling you about the dynamic photo shoots and interviews in this issue, I wanted to give our readers a look behind the scenes at just how it all comes together—it's not without the help of some of Austin's brightest creatives. We look forward to seeing all of you at this year's Ninth Annual TRIBEZA Style Week. Get all of the details on the week of events on page 60, as you join us in celebrating the new and much anticipated season of style that's upon us.

Lisa Siva

PUBLISHER George T. Elliman

It's not often that you come across a super star intern like Lisa Siva. A UT Plan II Honors student, she started at TRIBEZA as an intern two years ago and quickly grasped our specific vision and purpose for the magazine. She joined our staff as the editorial assistant this year. Lisa is a brilliant writer, a savvy content developer and just about the most kind and gentle soul you will ever meet. And if you can't already tell by the photo, she's a model too! We asked Lisa to move from her behind the scenes work of interviewing subjects, writing, copyediting, brainstorming story ideas and much more to in front of the camera for "When In Austin" (page 76), where Lisa and two other UT students created a week's worth of stylish looks all from locally owned Austin stores. We feel so honored to have a gem like Lisa on our team and will treasure our time with her until she sets sail to NYC upon graduation in May.

From documenting the round table discussion of "The BBQ Kings of Central Texas" for our May Cuisine issue to interviewing stylish musicians for our March Music issue, cinematographer Kyle Osburn of Blind Dinosaur has been bringing our stories to life with videos. This month, he interviewed all of the "Style Icons," which you can check out at tribeza.com. Osburn says: "Austin is such a diverse city with many different styles. It was a lot of fun to document some of the most stylish people in town for the rest of Austin to see."

Bill Sallans

Photographer Bill Sallans is just about the most friendly fellow around. He puts all of his subjects at ease with his warm and sincere demeanor. We enlisted him with the big challenge to photograph our first ever list of 12 "Style Icons" (page 80). He captured each of them in the location of their choice for a true production feat with all of their busy schedules. Of shooting the Style Icons in their elements Bill says: "What stood out to me the most was that each of them had a unique point of view and their fashion sense was a big part of who they are as people."

TRIBEZA Style Week Ads Just before our former designer Avalon McKenzie left TRIBEZA for a great job at Free People in Philadelphia, she dreamed up the concept for this year's Style Week advertisements that was then executed by photographer Adam Voorhes and designer Robin Finlay. Many readers have asked if we actually carved TRIBEZA Style Week in to the bottom of a pair of Louboutins or spray painted a Chanel bag. And, the answer always is "of course not!" It's all the clever styling and Photoshop work of Adam and Robin.

Oh, dear God. The curse and abomination of women everywhere? “You mean cellulite?” I ask, nonchalantly.

girls who once looked to me for confirmation that they looked pretty are now talking about my outfits behind my back. We made a beeline for Gap and they collected a pile of things for me to try on. The first order of business, apparently, was new shorts to replace my baggy, knee length, Old Navy cargo shorts circa 2005. They had me try on a pair of cut off jean shorts, the kind I used to dub “Daisy Dukes” because they were so short-short and frayed. I pulled them on and scrunched up my face at my reflection. “Mom! You look awesome! Much better. Get those, for sure.” Both of their blond heads bobbed approval. Good Lord, I was stuck. I can’t complain that middle-aged thighs do not need to be showcased. I cannot mention that the length of the shorts (or lack thereof) hit my thighs at a most unflattering point. I cannot mention that just because they sell your size in a particular style, does not necessarily mean you should wear it. I just sighed and bought the damn shorts (which, by the way, they made me change into the next time we were in a dressing room). For the rest of the day, I shyly yanked them down every time I caught my reflection in a store window. I relayed the story at my running group the next morning, to many chuckles. I also wanted to clarify so that if they saw me running around town looking like a Nair ad (we-wear-short-shorts— remember that song? If you do, you are also too old for the shorts. Sorry.) That it was not my idea, and I did not think I looked hot. I took those shorts for the team, people. I can’t tell my gorgeous

girls, who are still blissfully living life relatively free of weird body issues, that middle-aged thighs should be politely shrouded, or that my strong runner thighs might warrant longer shorts. The day got more uncomfortable than my wedging shorts. “What are the weird dots that people get on their legs and stuff, Mom?” one of my girls asks me. Hmmm, dots? “Like, freckles?” I ask, half-listening while window shopping. “No, like little dimple-holes.” Oh, dear God. The curse and abomination of women everywhere? “You mean cellulite?” I ask, nonchalantly. “Yes! That’s it! Satellite!” I smirk and don’t correct her. And I yank my shorts with great gusto. Why are they asking this? Is my satellite showing in these shorts? I swallow a giant lump of paranoia and channel my inner grown up. “Why are you asking about cell…er…satellite, honey?” I ask sweetly. “Oh, because I saw a lady at the beach with it, and I wonder if you get it because you don’t use sunscreen?” Ahhh. “You should always wear sunscreen, sweets. You know that.” “Yeah. I know. You wanna getta ice cream cone?” I nod, and they take off to look at flavors. I order a double scoop. I want everyone to see me eat it, in my short shorts, wee-wee-wee all the way home.

Emily Whittenburg Owner, Magpie Fields

A

t the heart of Magpie Fields is owner Emily Whittenburg’s unmistakable wanderlust: three years ago, Whittenburg and her husband, Josh, left their home in Louisiana to teach English in the Czech Republic. Over the course of their travels, Whittenburg discovered the bustling Kolbenova flea market in Prague, where vendors spread their blankets along an open field and hawk their one-of-a-kind wares—some new, others centuries old. “I’d never seen anything like it,” she says. “It was inspiring just to rummage through goods that were so well-crafted and had a story behind them.” Upon moving to Austin years later, Whittenburg launched Magpie Fields, an online collection of vintage and global goods named after the open-field market that first sparked her “passion for history and uniqueness.” Today, Whittenburg continues to seek out intriguing pieces from around the world, combing the markets of New York, Canton, Round Top and more for handcrafted goods and vintage treasures. In addition, Whittenburg often adds her own, restorative touch to her antique finds, like the set of old, cast-iron keys she repainted in vivid hues. Ultimately, from Turkish killim pillows to an exquisite, 1940s Italian chandelier, Magpie Fields offers an escape into an extraordinary world of adventure. “It’s quirky and eclectic but timeless,” Whittenburg says. “Magpie Fields reflects the spirit of a traveler.” Emily Whittenburg’s collection is available at magpiefields.com. A portion of proceeds from all sales benefit a charity of the customer’s choosing. L. SIVA

9 Questions f o r E M ILY

What is the most beautiful place in the world you’ve visited? For natural beauty, White Sands National Park—it’s absolutely breathtaking. Architecturally, Venice, Italy. The city is deteriorating in a beautiful, sorrowful way: the colors, the smells, the sounds…it’s all these elements combined that make it the most beautiful. Who are your style icons? Jean-Michel Frank for timeless furniture design; Frank Gehry, who pushes the envelope in architecture and Kelly Wearstler, who has mastered interiors and now fashion. What is your most treasured possession? The wedding gift from my husband, a memory box

42

september 2012

that is an antique printing press drawer. His mom still has one hanging in her home in New Orleans, and now we have followed suit in the family tradition. We fill each little slot with our life’s little trinkets—be it a birthday candle, wine cork, rock, etc. This box is an evolving story of our life. Where and when are you the happiest? Traveling. Experiencing a new environment and learning about a new culture. What is your favorite time period? 60s fashion and interiors were both spot-on—a more modern version of the 50s, naturally. If you were an inventor, what would you invent? A language-translating earpiece that instantly allows me to understand the native language of wherever I’m travelling (response-translating mouthpiece patent pending…).

If you weren’t in your current career, what would you be? It would definitely be something in art or design— maybe an art teacher. I loved teaching kids abroad, and it would be even better to throw art into the mix. What was your favorite article of clothing when you were a child? A gift from my grandmother—a red, full-length nightgown that I wore until it was above my knees. It was fancy and made me feel extra special! What is the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? My most challenging moment was definitely my most rewarding: leaving my comfort zone of life in Louisiana and moving abroad when we had never left the country before. My husband and I took a leap of faith then, and now, we can’t seem to get rid of the travel bug! P h oto by Jay B S au c eda

Indiana Adams Founder, Adored Austin

A love of thrift has followed this fashion blogger through life, from preschool show and tell to motherhood.

I

was four years old when I realized I wasn't like the other kids. My grandma had just dropped me off for preschool when my teacher took one look at my empty arms and asked, “Where's your piece for show and tell?” I glanced around the room. My classmates clutched their favorite blankets and books. A couple kids smugly showed off Cabbage Patch dolls and talking Teddy Ruxpins. Me? I came prepared to show off my “new” sweater. I use “new” loosely here because by no means was my sweater fresh off the rack of our local department store. The sweater I sported was something I found with my grandma at a yard sale two days prior. Bright teal with white lambs and pink hearts woven throughout and topped off with puff sleeves that engulfed my spindly arms, this 1970's castoff found a second life in the closet and heart of a preschooler a decade after its birth. While other kids bragged about their last birthday gift, I chose to showcase what I believed was a true treasure—a crazy, unique sweater acquired for the bargain price of one dime from an old lady who lived down the street from me. Every weekend of my childhood was spent at yard sales, flea markets or sifting through the racks of my grandma's resale shop. For nearly every milestone in my life, I can connect a piece of second-hand clothing: I wore

a $5 powder blue taffeta gown in a preteen pageant I begged to do, I donned used cowboy boots in the first school play I was in, and I was wearing thrifted jean cutoffs when the man I would later marry became my boyfriend. I have no doubt that my grandma's love of buying castoff remains the biggest influence on the way I shop and dress. While my blogging peers get frantically excited about the latest New York fashion shows, I get excited about a 50% off coupon for my favorite thrift store. Despite having a blog that does relatively well in the fashion blogger subset, I don't know if I can ever say I was into “fashion.” I can't look at a magazine editorial and pick out the Marc Jacobs pieces versus Michael Kors. I don't own a Chanel jacket or a pair of Jimmy Choos. Sure, I've bookmarked a dreamy Proenza Schouler handbag or two on Pinterest, but honestly, my go-to bag is a little leather clutch I found at Texas Thrift a couple years ago. When flipping through thrift store racks, I find myself hugging garments to my chest and imagining the colorful lives the clothes used to lead. I wonder how they fell from grace; how were they once so beloved but now hang dejected with an endless army of injured, forgotten comrades? Then I check my pocketbook and make a few rescues: a

1950's ballgown here, a hand-painted kimono from the 70's there. Like my grandma, who, incidentally, still goes to yard sales on the weekends, I believe second-hand clothes have stories to tell, and I want to hear them speak again. In a very small way, I see my thrift store adventures as a tiny analogy to my own life story. After my father's death and my mother's choice to give up custody of me, there were times I felt abandoned and unwanted. My grandparents swooped in and saved me. They were the ones who mended my tears and ultimately gave me the voice to share my story. More importantly, though, as I grow in my faith, I'm starting to see that this story of redemption—that is, taking the castoffs and the declaring them treasures—is exactly how God sees me. My penchant for dressing a little offbeat caused me to be a bit of an outcast in the small town where I grew up. Even in college, my old lady sweaters and animal jewelry made me an anomaly in a sea of mall brands. But as I've entered into my 30's, I'm finally seeing that that's okay. One of the reasons why Austin instantly felt like home to me is because we are a city full of people who learned at an early age that we weren't like the other kids. Plus, no one here has ever scoffed in my face at an ugly sweater I've worn in public, so that's pretty cool. P h oto g r a p h y bY M i c h a el T h a d C a rt er

Ballet Austin’s Fête 2012 Friday, September 21, 6pm The Driskill Hotel balletaustin.org

T

his year, Ballet Austin will spirit guests away to the whimsical world of The Nutcracker with Fête 2012, a show-stopping tribute to the timeless Christmas classic. Marking the Golden Anniversary of its Nutcracker production, Ballet Austin presents a sparkling evening in two acts: inspired by the elegance of the Victorian era and the magic of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, the Fête dinner and fête*ish after-party promise an enchanting journey to the land of sweets, cuisine and the arts. Upon arrival at the Driskill Hotel, guests will find themselves immersed in the opening party scene of The Nutcracker. Complete with extraordinary floral designs by Mandarin Flower Company and a sumptuous, Victorian-inspired menu, Fête will bring the Nutcracker to life, as characters emerge from the ballet and into the festivities. Taking cues from Victorian holiday celebrations, Fête begins with a Nutcracker-themed dinner and cocktails by TWIN Liquors, while classical strings usher in an unforgettable evening. Fête’s second act plunges guests into the fantastical world of Clara’s dream for fête*ish. Larger-than-life sets and surprises around every corner await, as guests dance the night away to the sounds of Austin’s own Invincible Czars, followed by Mandy Lauderdale and Grammy award-winning DJ Spinderella. Over the course of the evening, Ballet Austin will also unveil a program celebrating the countless “Nutcracker Moments” that have shaped its community of dancers over the past 50 seasons. Proceeds from Fête and fête*ish support Ballet Austin’s education and outreach programs, which benefit over 57,000 Central Texans every year. “First and foremost,” says Director of Development Christi Cuellar, “we want guests to walk away feeling good about supporting Ballet Austin.” R.

Jennifer Balkan

I

t wasn’t until after Jennifer Balkan received a PhD in sociology from The University of Texas that she finally embraced her desire for artistic creativity. “I felt so strongly about painting that I realized there was nothing else I wanted to do,” she says. Today, she still uses her bold sense of symbolism and broad color palette to integrate psychological and sociological concepts in her pieces. “Even when I paint still life set-ups,” she confesses, “I can’t help but create some psychological tension or drama or dynamic among the inanimate objects.” When Balkan first began painting in 2001, her work was largely narrative, incorporating masks and other props to stage an explicit scene. However, over the course of her career, Balkan’s work has evolved to create starker and more introspective views of her subjects. Her piece entitled “What We Have,” for example, reveals the energetic compatibility between two young women, who share a “deep, platonic intimacy.” This painting coincides with the theme of her latest collection, which works to encapsulate the intimate moments of a person’s life through a barrage of circles, representing the lens of social media. “What We Have” also projects a whimsical image of childhood, complete with pigtails, bows and lollipops, a theme that runs throughout Balkan’s work. “Things are often candy coated,” Balkan says, “but with something a little more bitter inside.” For more information on Jennifer Balkan and her work, visit jenniferbalkan.net.

Dog & Pony’s Third Thursdays This month marks the second anniversary of Dog & Pony, a retail store transformed into a collaborative space for the creative community. In addition to overseeing in-house projects, including a forthcoming music video for Anastasia Dimou, owner Star Lee opens Dog & Pony’s doors on the third Thursday of each month, from noon to midnight. Once the sun goes down, guests enjoy drinks and photography by local artists, as they browse the wares of online retailers like Splendor Boutique and American Icon, who, for a single evening, share a brick and mortar space with Dog & Pony’s own line of custom denim. Ultimately, Lee looks forward to expanding Third Thursdays into a neighborhood-wide event with other retailers on Guadalupe. “We want people to know that they can come here and find things they didn’t know about before,” she notes. For more information about Dog & Pony’s Third Thursdays, visit dogandpony.us.

Jai Mayhew Though Jai Mayhew began her career as an art model, she soon found herself fascinated by the other side of the lens: “I just fell in love with photography and couldn’t put the camera down,” she remarks. Over the past two years, Mayhew has been cultivating an eye for female sensuality, and her work, alternately stark and decadent, has graced the pages of Austin Lifestyle as well as the Vogue Italia website. “I think it’s fascinating how a woman’s sensuality can be soft and vulnerable and yet completely overpowering,” she observes. Whether Mayhew’s photographs are set in a wonderland-inspired garden, at sea or in the dessert, each one thus offers up a striking portrait of a woman full of life and daring. “I like to portray women as sensual but strong,” Mayhew says. “That, to me, is hard to look away from.” Look for Jai Mayhew’s work in this month’s Austin Lifestyle and Glassbook.

International Afrik an Fa shion Week Austin

Next month, Austin’s fashionable set welcomes the city’s first ever International-Afrikan Fashion Week Austin, produced by Runway Underground. A week of pop-up shops, trunk shows and presentations around downtown Austin and the East End, I-AFW/A aims to bring the work of local and international Black designers to the forefront. From concept to production, each show will be thoughtfully shaped by the members of the Runway Underground network, whose makeup artists, stylists, designers and models produce a variety of events throughout the year. “There are many incredible stories and great folks who work with and are members of Runway Underground,” says founder Nailah Akinyémi-Sankofa. This fall, I-AFW/A marks the network’s coup de théâtre, as members from all walks of life—East African refugees, a trained opera singer, an APD officer— gather to celebrate the burgeoning community of international artists across the city. International Afrikan Fashion Week Austin will be held October 4-11. For more information, visit runwayunderground.webs.com.

most prized possession was a red coat with a faux furEditorial Assistant, TRIBEZA trimmed collar. It was a coat fit for a queen, enveloping me in its satiny lining and rich, unmistakable color. Over a decade later, as I have had wonderful opportunities to meet and write about Austin’s vibrant store owners, jewelry makers and clothing designers, I’ve realized that we all have our own red coat of sorts—the pieces that transform us, the pieces that are windows through which our brightest selves shine. Today, that self is a little Françoise Hardy and a little Jenna Lyons, feminine, with a few touches—a bold boot, a tailored blazer— borrowed from the boys. And with Austin’s eclectic array of well-curated local boutiques, from Girl Next Door’s youthful elegance to Fawn + Raven’s speakeasy atmosphere, this city has been the perfect place to discover a style of my own.

designer Kaidon Ho found himself in a forBlogger, kaindonjetaime.tumblr.com est clearing, where a blade of black quartz had erupted from the soil. “It was magical,” he says. “I wanted to capture that visceral reaction.” That dream fueled his senior collection, Rêves Violents, whose garments call to mind both the nightmarish and the beautiful. His collection’s dark, challenging aesthetic trickles into his personal style, which the designer likens to that of Daphne Guinness. As he strolled along South Congress, Ho pulled together looks with an androgynous take on menswear, noting, “I can’t seem to not suffer for fashion!”

In a converted house on East Sixth Street, Papi Tino’s serves up a modern take on the Mexican cantina. Inside, a warm, wood-paneled interior greets the culinary explorer with nostalgic touches, from an old upright Aeolian piano to a vintage jukebox. Diners can enjoy a sumptuous menu of Latin American fare, including a mouthwatering Ceviche with mango and creamy Enchiladas Suiza. Those seeking a refreshing nightcap, however, can head to the intimate bar, strewn with strands of lights that illuminate Papi Tino’s bottles of unique, flavorful mezcals. Whether you’re in the mood for a hearty meal or a drink on the eclectic patio, Papi Tino’s offers the perfect place to linger the evening away.

New SUPER shades and the perfect vintage size 38 Schott Perfecto leather jacket. And I always need new Red Wing boots.

Who is your favorite designer? I'm fascinated with Rose Marie Reid's vintage swimsuit designs. Her suits were beautifully fitted and impossibly flattering. She designed exclusively for the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Joan Crawford. Which decade in fashion do

you identify most with?

I love bits from every decade, though vintage 50's and 60's styles fit best. Those dresses with the tight-nipped waists were made for my particular shape. If you could trade wardrobes

Paul Qui & Deana Saukum CHEF/ Bon Vivant and Professional Eater

What was your favorite piece of clothing as a child?

Deana: I remember having a t-shirt with a big hot pink happy face on it that I really liked wearing. It was very 80s. I remember it made me feel happy. Paul: Nike Air Jordan 3’s What is your current wardrobe staple? Deana: Comfy one-piece rompers or jumpers. Shirt dresses. VPL bras. Who is your favorite designer? Deana: Alexander Wang. I love how he is able to balance sexy, feminine, masculine and sporty at the same time. His use of different textures is amazing. I can’t get enough. I am also really fond of Christopher Kane and Carven. And The Row. Duh.

What’s your favorite decade in fashion?

Deana: I love them all! My favorite really changes day-to-day: Sometimes, I identify with the grunge era of the 90s, especially when I choose ripped jeans, paired with T-shirts over dresses. I also love the 60s and 70s boho look with loose-fitting, flowing pau l a n d d e a n a PHOTO G RAPHED by C h r i s t i a n R em d e

dresses, kaftans and batik prints. And then there’s the 80s, with all that neon and short, tight dresses, skirts and acid-washed jeans. I am really happy to see the return of the peplum. If you could trade wardrobes with anyone liv-

ing or dead, who would it be?

Deana: I really would love to look like Victoria Beckham for a day or Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. Paul: Hiroshi Fujiwara. I would kill to have a tenth of the sneakers in his collection. What is your favorite place in the world

to shop?

Deana: NYC, LA, London, Paris, Copenhagen and Tokyo are all great cities to shop.

What did you purchase on your last trip?

Deana: In NYC, I purchased a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti black suede pumps with gold-plated five-inch stiletto heels, a sheer knit plaid Alexander Wang dress, Rachel Comey flats, a Y’s oversized top and a few pieces from Maje that I really love. Paul: A Commes des Garçons sweater.

What items are currently on your fashion wish list?

Deana: A new fall/winter Celine handbag. Paul: Junya Watanabe denim/plaid coat. Common Projects black sneaker with gum sole. Helm Handmade Boots American made line. Maison Martin Margiela low-cut paint splattered sneakers. What do you love about the fall season

in fashion?

Deana: Layers, textures and patterns! Grays, blacks, tans, creams and browns, with pops of jewel tones or brighter accents (red, green orange, feathers, fur, lace, everything!). It is going to be very exciting.

Who has been your greatest style inspiration?

Deana: Seeing the street style in every city we visit. This summer alone, we have been to Paris, London, Tokyo, Copenhagen, NYC, LA and Madrid. Each city has been very inspirational style-wise, each in its own way. When I am at home, my best friend, Betsy Granger, is my biggest style inspiration. Paul: Deana Saukam. tribeza.com

You can often find Elizabeth Spruiell cruising in her '89 Land Cruiser. She says: "It's one of my favorite things on the planet. It's understated and solid, but still a total looker."

Elizabeth Spiurell Oil and Gas At torney, Aspiring Entertainment Big Wig and Image Editor for Austin Tidbits

What was your favorite piece of clothing as a child? I don't remember anything specific, but I was always beyond giddy for back-to-school clothes.

What is your current wardrobe staple?

Boots/booties and sunglasses. Most people probably don't know my actual eye color.

Who is your favorite designer?

Ralph Lauren. He's created so much more than a look; it's a lifestyle. You're covered from the ranch to the Met Ball—I love all that Americana!

could empathize with being caught between expectations and rebellious desires.

If you could trade wardrobes with anyone living or dead, who would it be? Daisy Buchanan. Or David Bowie.

What is your favorite place in the world to shop? Does the Internet count? It would take 12 steps for me to quit Shopbop.com—I visit it daily. Otherwise, I'm desperate to go back to London and hit Portobello Road. I wasn't ready for it the last time I was there.

What’s your favorite decade in fashion?

Where was your latest shopping trip to and what did you purchase?

The Jazz Age—late 20s, early 30s. The ladies were finally getting to break free a bit, but not without some opposition. I think I

I went to my hometown for its massive flea market a few months back, hoping for some home goods, but I couldn't pass up a vintage

tribeza.com

Levi's denim jacket I'm currently distressing. It fits like a glove. I also bought some Mexican vanilla.

What items are currently on your fashion wish list?

Some zany denim, a touch of tweed and anything Rag & Bone. I will be passing on peplums, however.

What do you love about the fall season in fashion?

Plaids, herringbone, knee socks, houndstooth and reveries of actually needing a coat.

Who has been your greatest style inspiration? My close friends. It's easy to be comfortable and my most authentic self around them. Plus, I absolutely count on them to let me know when I'm looking a mess.

Renaissance Man

The Hyde Park home of Bobby Johns and his partner Steve Shuck was the perfect place to capture Johns’ style. “I love to entertain and am most comfortable in the home that we have created. My personal style mimics my taste in design, which ranges from classic to eclectic.”

Bobby Johns C o - owner of M ercury Design S tudio, S TAG + Operations M anager for Bunkhouse M anagement

What was your favorite piece of clothing as a child? I owned a yellow studded denim suit that I wanted to wear all the time. It was my first experience expressing my confidence through my personal style.

What is your current wardrobe staple?

Mostly denim and lots of it, but a great pair of worn-in boots will always be in style.

Who is your favorite designer?

It may be surprising but it’s Ralph Lauren—the collections are so vast that I always find something I like, and these pieces never go out of style.

Which decade in fashion do you identify most with?

There isn’t any one decade I identify with solely. I've always incorporated vintage into my wardrobe, and I always will. I believe that everyone should start with an understanding of the silhouette that best complements their body and build from there. The high-waisted cuts of 1940s suits will never agree with my frame, but the classic tailoring of the 50s is something I feel very comfortable in.

If you could trade wardrobes with anyone living or dead, who would it be? Paul Newman in the 50s, Mick Jagger in the 60s, Cher in the 70s and David Bowie in the 80s.

Where was your latest shopping trip to and what did you purchase? I was in NYC this past spring and found the most perfect pair of busted Chippewa snake boots at Quality Mending Company.

What items are currently on your fashion wish list? A tribal print suit, the perfect white shirt, and I never pass on a great hat.

Who has been your greatest style inspiration?

I've always admired those people who have fun with fashion and understand that it's always changing and shouldn't be taken too seriously. I did have the opportunity to meet one of my style icons several years ago—Derrill Osborn. As the original men's buyer for Neiman Marcus, he has been responsible for creating men's style in the US for many years. He is eccentric, exudes classic style and dresses everyday to be noticed.

That would have to be a tie between Iris Apfel and Yves Saint Laurent. Iris is a women who understands that "the only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize." Yves Saint Laurent's designs were cultured and sophisticated. I am particularly inspired by his Moroccan period.

Drawn to the juxtaposition of bold public art and the historic Texas Military Institute Castle, Marcus Hersh notes, “I love that artists have taken something that was once an eyesore and made it beautiful.”


the GlaM Bohemian

Elena Garcia Event Coordinator, C3 Presents

What was your favorite piece of clothing as a child? My USA leotard that was just like Mary Lou Retton's, embroidered Mexican dresses, and anything that was purple! What is your current wardrobe

staple?

Jewelry! Lots of jewelry! Who is your favorite designer? Matthew Williamson and Elizabeth and James. Matthew Williamson's use of color is addicting, and Elizabeth and James is edgy, feminine and classic all in one. Which decade in fashion do

you identify most with?

Probably the 60's and 70's. I love the hippie, vintage, bohemian vibe the period represented and the freedom of it.

If you could trade wardrobes with anyone living or dead, who would it be? Elena Garcia loves the quiet charm of The Hotel Saint Cecilia, designed by Liz Lambert. “You completely forget you are located in the heart of downtown Austin,” she says.

Patricia Field! I cannot imagine how incredible her closet must be! Or Blake Lively—in real life and as Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl. Her wardrobe is just so unexpected and brilliant! What is your favorite place in

Intermix in The Hamptons or anywhere in Florence, Italy! Where was your latest shop-

Classic large Chanel flap bag and the rounded Ray Ban Wayfarers. I have a sunglasses addiction—just ask my fiancé! What do you love about the fall season in fashion? Boots and layering. I could die happy wearing a great pair of slouchy boots, a grandpa cardigan and a chunky scarf. And of course, lots of jewelry! Who has been your greatest

The people around me. Austinites in particular, but no matter where I am, whether it be in Chicago, IL, or antique shopping on the streets of Fredericksburg, TX, I am constantly pulling inspiration from my surroundings. tribeza.com

I'm all over the fashion map. I do love women's fashion from the 1940's and 1970's. Women's fashion started to develop and change during the 1940's. As for the 70's... God bless the jumpsuit! If could trade wardrobes with anyone living or

Lisa: I love the menswear look for women. Give me a suit, a hat and wingtips, and I am happy.

Who has been your greatest style inspiration?

Jim: For me, the following men are more aspirational, as they are singular and unapproachable stylistically: Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, Miles Davis (no one ever wore black better than Miles). Lisa: I am inspired by women who wear their clothes with confidence. It doesn’t matter what size you are or if you are wearing a burlap sack—if you throw your shoulders back and walk into a room with confidence, you own your style. tribeza.com

J. Miguel Rangel Artist + Creative

What was your favorite piece of clothing as a child?

A pair of green army pants that I wore with shiny black tuxedo shoes. I went everywhere in them. I felt pretty.

What is your current wardrobe staple?

A pair of brown Lucchese Boots. I've had them for a decade now. It’s like Gucci to a Texas cowboy, but I'm no cowboy. Which decade in fashion do you identify

most with?

I'm a product of Generation Y—everything goes. Some days I can feel a little 50s; other days, I’m more 1920s.

If you could trade wardrobes with anyone

living or dead, who would it be?

Steve McQueen. What is your favorite place in the world

to shop?

To shop or borrow? My childhood best friend, Marie Ely, has tons of amazing pieces that her father, Joe Ely, wore. If I'm lucky, her closet is sometimes my favorite place to rummage through. Where was your latest shopping trip to and

what did you purchase?

Room Service on SoCo. I bought a pair of Levi's. The store is full of seemingly simple pieces that, when closely examined, display some awesome attention to detail.

What items are currently on your fashion wish list? Anything by Tom Ford. What do you love about the fall season

in fashion?

Layers. You can change your whole look with a well-tailored coat. Who has been your greatest style inspiration? My soulmate and best friend, Kelly Framel (blogger behind The Glamourai). She keeps me on my toes and looking good. I can't walk around with the likes of her unless I'm up to her standards, which have made her quite successful. tribeza.com

MY AUSTIN

Ross & Erin Bennett’s

South Congress

I

grew up in Austin, and I’ve spent most of my life living here, watching as the city has really grown around me over the past several years. To say I love Austin is an understatement—the possibilities the city has to offer are endless, and there are always unforgettable experiences to be had. Each day promises a different adventure, whether it is a new restaurant, clothing boutique or just a secret corner of town waiting to be discovered. Ross and I own our clothing business, and I still work full-time as an assistant buyer for a beauty product distributor, so weekends tend to be when we get to hang out and do most of our exploring. We usually start our Saturdays off by waking up late and taking our time, making the most of our morning. After a hearty breakfast, you can usually find us strolling around town, most likely on one of our favorite streets in Austin: South Congress. We like to wander around together, getting lost and discovering all of Austin’s hidden gems. One of our personal favorites is the Mighty Cone—the Chicken Cone is to die for! After grabbing a bite to eat, we head to the shops, where the real treasure hunting begins. Each store is unique and has an ever-rotating assortment of clothes, gifts and antiques. Anything you are looking for you can probably find on SoCo. A few of our favorite stops include Kendra Scott, Maya Star, Tesoros, STAG and Allens Boots—because after all, we are in Texas! After a tour of South Congress, the cravings kick in, and we make our way to the famous Big Top Candy Shop. We head straight to the back to peruse the bulk section, filling our plastic bags with an assortment of goodies. As we load up on our favorites, it is always fun to scope out all the random treats, like the bacon icing, the lollipop tree and the oversized taffy bars. We just have so much fun looking through the entire shop—we feel like kids again, swapping goodies with one another and sipping handmade cream soda from the soda fountain. South Congress is most definitely the go-to spot if you want to get a taste of Austin in a day. From digging around thrift shops, to indulging in some of Austin’s best eats, South Congress really does have it all. ERIN BENNETT

Dandy’s: The Gentleman’s Store Dandy’s Co-Owner Wendy Bykowski takes us back in time with turn of the century style. Dandy’s offers everything a modern dandy needs, from a floppy bowtie to the perfect hat.

After their own turn of the century-inspired wedding, Chris and Wendy Bykowski created Dandy’s for the modern gentleman with a vintage spirit.

D

Dandy’s is located at 1202 South Congress Ave.

Chris and Wendy Bykowski unveiled their classic boots at last year’s South by Southwest.

tribeza.com

The Bykowskis take inspiration from old photographs and Buster Keaton’s silent films.

andy’s is an escape into an early twentieth century haven: the bustle of South Congress fades, replaced by the smooth sounds of jazz, as you enter a world of sack suits and suspenders, herringbone and handkerchiefs. Owners Wendy Bykowski and her husband, Chris, have always been fascinated by decades past, but they have a particular affinity for the turn of the century. “It’s the last wearable era,” Bykowski says. Evoking the time period through vintage-inspired fabrics and shapes, Dandy’s offers classic style for the modern-day gentleman. In addition to an extensive selection of boots, custom and ready-to-wear hats, a full shaving section, gramophones, pocket watches and other accessories, the duo’s specialty is the custom suit, which often begins with a modernized sack suit silhouette that customers can then personalize with their choice of fabric, liner, overall fit and more. “We want guests to have an experience at Dandy’s,” Bykowski says. “They can get measured, enjoy a glass of scotch and have this beautiful piece of clothing they’ll be able to keep forever.” L.

Ricky Hodge’s Bowtie Anna Wintour has her sunglasses, Karl Lagerfeld his gloves—and for Ricky Hodge, his crown jewel is the perfect bowtie.

R

icky Hodge doesn’t dress like your typical hairstylist: whether he’s backstage at a fashion show or behind the chair at his eponymous salon, he’s never without a signature bowtie. “It’s conservative meets rock and roll,” Hodge says of his distinctive style. Pairing buttondown shirts—short-sleeved, to showcase his intricate tattoos—with jeans and wingtips, the hairdresser loves the juxtaposition of timeless and edgy elements, drawn together by a classic bowtie. What began as an effort to set himself apart from the largely head-to-toe black ensembles of his peers has since become his trademark, the heart of his unique style. Over the past two years, Hodge has amassed a collection of 75 bowties, but he also looks forward to making his own from old haberdashery shirts. “Anybody can wear a bowtie, but you have to come up with your own style around it,” he says. “And that’s pretty much how fashion is made, anyway.” For more information about Ricky Hodge, visit rickyhodgesalon.com.

razzled foodies, take heart: Your quest for a top-notch meal prepared at a fast-food pace is over: Fresa’s has arrived. This tasty and super-convenient drive-thru restaurant is serving up high-quality Mexican food at lightning speed. Cruise through its central Austin driveway—just look for the neon chicken!—and in minutes you’ll drive away with a complete meal fit for the fussiest foodie. Fresa’s specialty is grilled chicken. But not just any old yard bird: Fresa’s pasture-raised poultry comes exclusively from Peeler Farms in nearby Floresville. Offered in two flavors— achiote and citrus or oregano and pepper— chickens are marinated then slow-grilled over

hardwood charcoal, resulting in juicy, flavorful meat and smoky, charred skin. Served as complete family-style meals, whole or halfchicken dinners come with rice, beans, grilled onions, jalapenos, salsa and tortillas or rolls. The classic half chicken achiote-citrus dinner was more than enough food for my sweetie and me. Wrapped in butcher paper, the moist meat was liberally coated in red achiote spices and surrounded by grilled onions and whole jalapenos. We pulled the meat off the bone and tucked it into warm, homemade tortillas. A squirt of fresh lime perked it up to perfection and the delicious salsas—a smoky red and fiery green—added extra zip. Mexican rice was studded with chopped carrots and charro beans were savory and satisfying. In addition to complete dinners, Fresa’s offers torta sandwiches, entrée salads, side dishes, desserts and drinks. We started our meal with the Chopped Salad, a garden-fresh mound of baby spinach topped with marinated chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, red onion,

queso fresco and a sherry shallot vinaigrette. We couldn’t resist ordering supplemental sides of eschebe vegetables and grilled corn. The eschebe was a delicious medley of grilled cauliflower, onions, jalapenos, carrots and red cabbage. The grilled corn was authentically slathered in mayo and crumbly cotija cheese, but didn’t travel well and arrived soggy and bland. For dessert, we indulged in one of Fresa’s homemade ice creams: rich, creamy strawberry dotted with real berries. Fresa’s sells an assortment of beverages including Mexican sodas, fruity aguas frescas, creamy horchata, beers and modestly priced bottles of wine. It even sells a Michelada ‘kit’ containing a pint of chilled seasoned tomato juice, sliced limes, cocktail olives and seasoning salt. When you get home, simply add beer (that Fresa’s conveniently sells) and enjoy. It’s amazing the quality and quantity that Fresa’s turns out of its compact space, the former site of a photo developing shop and a coffee bar. Somehow the tiny two-story building now houses a hulking eight-foot grill downstairs and a kitchen and office upstairs. Launched by the folks behind culinary dazzlers like Lambert’s, Perla’s and Elizabeth Street Café, Fresa’s has taken fast food to new heights. Austin’s frazzled foodies are breathing a sigh of relief.

SEPTEMBER 2012

tribeza.com

t was a cold day in November when the HELM office called in lunch at Veracruz All Natural. “Oh great,” I thought. “Another taco trailer.” This uneducated thought was long before the scrumptious Veracruz All Natural Sandwich (or what I like to call the V.A.N.S— no relation to the shoes) first bequeathed my oral sanctum with enlightenment. And then and there, I was proven wrong—this was not just another taco trailer. Since that day, my weekday lunch hours are increasingly graced by the smiles and sweet, hardworking attitudes of the two sisters who own and operate Veracruz All Natural. The vegetarian tacos are my next favorite, while my family prefers the Migas and the La Renya. One of the craziest things is the tacos stay hot for a super long time. Like, a strangely long time. They come out piping hot and full of fresh, local ingredients, and they stay hot...and stay hot...and stay hot—as if there is some sort of secret special heating ingredient. And no, it’s not the foil. But whatever it is, it can’t be an additive or preservative, because V.A.N. is 100% All Natural. In between orders, the lovely hermanas make fresh salsa in

their molcajete, which you don’t want to miss. Add it to anything you order there lest you miss the icing on the cake. The other, must-have taco complement? One of V.A.N.’s top-notch smoothies or agua frescas. I often get their “Mr. Z” smoothie with pineapple and kiwi, but you can also make your own with grapefruit, pear, mango—lots of fun options, all made with 100% real fruit. If you’re feeling frisky, though, try the corn in a cup with parmesan, lime and chili powder (although I suggest you hold off on the chili powder for the kiddos or if you are known to share your corn in a cup with your dog). Please note that the V.A.N. menu is sometimes “under construction,” but don’t worry, the hermanas de V.A.N always come back with something strong. And last, but by far not least, you must know that there used to be a huge snow cone on top of the trailer that is now hiding behind it, but if you get close enough, the red spray-painted foam looks like a gigantic brain. My son thinks this is awesome, and so do I. Joshua Bingaman Joshua Bingaman is the founder of HELM Boots, a collection of classic, hand crafted boots for the footwear connoisseur.
