The place where I live, work, and love is coming alive! No, it’s not because of a bunch of creepy crawlies, it’s because of SXSW! For those of you who don’t know what the heck I’m talking about I’m talking about South by Southwest…
a Music, Film, Interactive and now Fashion mecca in the South where all of the cool people spend a part of their March (famous actors, musicians, leading names in technology…) to share and learn about all of the latest and greatest trends in technology, listen to the hottest bands in the world and watch some of the most amazing new films of 2012.
And now, the sound of real music to my ears, SX is also beginning to feature all aspects of the fashion world, from technology to style. You can learn how to use social media and all of the tools and technology to start your own fashion line or just become an even bigger slave to your (secret) obsession with it.
Did I mention fashion!?! Yes I did and on March 16th and 17th (of which my fashion stylist extraordinaire and sweetie Miramar is a part) Style X Personal Guided Shoppers will help you become an even more fabulous version of youreslf by styling you, giving you pointers on the latest trends, innovative designers and who to wear from the event.
Haven’t bought a ticket yet? There’s plenty of time and plenty of panels, fun, new friends to meet, and an amazing times to be had. Come on down, we know you’ll have a Dandi good time!
I don’t know where Andre 3000 of Outkast has been lately but I ran across a picture of him and realized that I would be very remiss if I did not include him here on PreppyBaba.com as one of my favorite Dandi’s.
In my opinion Andre 3000 is the king Dandy of the modern preppy world. Sure, some call his style ‘urban preppy’ but I think it is more than that. He has really raised the bar and elevated the playing field, turning a style that can tend towards the predictable into honest to goodness fashion.
In 2008 he started his own fashion line Benjamin Bixby, it got mixed reviews and has struggled though I saw an article as recent as October of 2011 where his line is now available in Neiman Marcus stores.
Sticking to your guns and being a trend setter is not for the faint of heart. I am inspired by Andre 3000 and will look for his line the next time I’m in one of my favorite stores to shop.
