I spent last weekend in Austin, Texas. While I love Houston I am quick to tell anyone from out of state that Austin is the best city in Texas.

I had hoped to take
more street style pictures, but two things stopped me. One, I forgot my camera in the room a few times; two, I haven't gotten over the awkward feeling of asking to take someone's picture. People ask to take mine often, and it is always nice to feel some appreciation, but for some reason I feel as though when I ask others it would be a nuisance. My solution is to order business cards with the blog header and email to pass out when asking for street style pictures.
While googling the gun print dress, I came across a new blog that looks awesome, Gertie's Blog for Better Sewing. She is a fan of the gun print dress and posed the question to her followers, what do you say to the world by wearing this dress? The responses were varied, mostly nay, I even left a comment.
