For those of you who may be new to Style X (pronounced “Style by”)rustic pillow covers, here’s the skinny:

What is Style X?

It is the official fashion discovery showcase of SXSW. It’;s a celebration of up-and-coming brands and designers from around the world (50 pop-up shops) along with an inside look at the fashion industry from thought leaders and some pretty spectacular runway shows featuring SXSW musicians as the models.

When is Style X?

Friday and Saturday, March 16–17, 2012 from noon to 8 p.m.

Where is Style X?

Exhibit Hall 4 in the Austin Convention Center (enter at the corner of 4th &; Trinity Streets). It’;s so close to all the action that every SXSW badge is picked up next door to where Style X takes place.

Why go to Style X?

Because it’;s the newest aspect of SXSW and will give you an inside look at what’;s next in the fashion industry.

In addition, BERNINA will be there and will host the first ever “Make and Take” sewing lab at the Style X from noon until 8 pm. Those who stop by will have the opportunity to create a variety of free projects on a BERNINA 380 sewing machine, including their choice of a unique iPad ? or tablet case, smart phone case or eReader case and a fun project for wear made from wool felt. The “Make and Take” sewing lab will be supported by Sew Much More, a BERNINA dealer in Austin, Texas BERNINA machines and accessories will also be available for sale at the booth.

BERNINA is also sponsoring the BurdaStyle and Style X Design Challenge. The three lucky winners and designers of the Style X Design Challenge will show off their rock star fashion looks worn on the runway by a true rock star featured at SXSW Music!

For the BurdaStyle and Style X Design Challenge, BurdaStyle asked its members to post one fashion sketch and one mood board detailing a rock star fashion look on its website by February 7, 2012. From the entries, BurdaStyle, BERNINA and Style X selected three finalists, which included one menswear look and two women’s designs. The winning designs are featured on the BurdaStyle blog Each finalist will also create a one-of-a-kind look for a well-known musician that will be showcased during the Style X Runway Show Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17 from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

If you love to flip through our catalog, you’ve probably noticed that we love to mix and match different bedding collections together. It’s a fun way to bring pattern and personality into your bedroom, without creating a busy space where your mind won’t be able to rest. That’s why?when we’re designing our bedding collections, we take care to coordinate all of the colors so they can work together.

For months I’ve been waiting for our outdoor dining chairs to arrive so I could share the room, but even without, we’ve been using it frequently by pulling our kitchen or dining room chairs in. I can’t resist a beautiful evening dining al fresco. When we purchased the home, I wasn’t sure if the screened porch or the deck would be the outdoor dining room. The screened porch is actually 3 rooms from the kitchen while the connected deck is off of the breakfast room. We decided to take advantage of the screens to eliminate the risk of bugs and made a slight accomodation in the room to make eating there more convenient – a ?buffet!

1. Remove everything & start fresh. It’s amazing what you find when you start by removing it all – even if by one section at a time. I discovered that I no longer wanted/needed a lot of what was in my closet. Clothes that no longer fit my body or style, things that don’t belong there {like baby dolls!} I love Apartment Therapy’s tip to see what you’re really wearing…flip your hangers around & after a month remove anything with areversed hanger.
