The Bat Flight - is not exciting...sorry.

We read about the nightly bat flight in Austin and made sure to hike out there to check it out. Honestly, it looked like a big swarm of insects filling the sky - not exactly exciting.
 

Didn't really wear the right shoes for this event.



 
Downtown Austin is really nice though, and we dined at a swank restaurant after the bats let us down.

Texas state capital building and some shops in Austin


 
The capital building was very ornate and quite impressive!




Here are some great shops we found in Austin -
TOY JOY - has a Sanrio ROOM! HELLO HELLO KITTY!



Buffalo Exchange is one shop I like to stop at in any city we visit. I happen to be wearing something I found at the Philly location in this photo. I always find great dresses for great prices at Buffalo Exchange. I found a great casual Betsey Johnson long sleeve babydoll dress with allover skull print at this one!

I am always happy to find a tea shop! This shop had a marvellous selection of teas and a very sweet gal working there that gave us lots of info on things to do and see in town.
YAY TEA EMBASSY - Austin, TX. I bought Vietnamese Oolong tea and Peach Apricot Honeybush tea.

Shopping Austin, TX - "SoCo"






Really fantastic shop called Uncommon Objects - but a bit overpriced, otherwise this hat would be MINE!

Gruene, TX - Market Day

The first HOT day of our HOT trip - we drove outside Austin to check out Gruene. The flea market was FANTASTIC and the little shops in town were fun too.
 


I LOVED all the furniture at this booth and absolutlely will have a bench like this someday! - one of the more colorful ones though.




 
I LOVE SHOPPING! And hot weather! This trip was full of both!

SHARON NEEDLES! Drag SUPERSTAR!

Hello!
 
We took a trip to Texas last month to see my favorite ICON  - SHARON NEEDLES star in one of my favorite shows - The Rocky Horror Show
 
It was FIERCE! And Fabulous, and Fantastic and totally worth planning a vacation around!
 
 
Sharon has been SUPER SWEET both times I've met her at an event. She told me she wanted to steal my dress. She's PERFECT!



Industrial Ken is super awesome for joining in the fun! I guess he realizes he has nothing to worry about if the stars I idolize most are men in dressses (oh how I hope to meet RuPaul someday!).



My favorite Betsey dress and my favorite Steve Madden wedge heels seem to be made for each other!
