Clink Pop Fizz

Thursday night Kate Spade of Nashville hosted the most adorable event for the bloggers of Nashville! Always enticed by the colorful displays and immaculately curated interiors of this store; I was elated at the opportunity to capture some of the creativity behind this brand. The event spotlighted the launch of their latest fall collection "Travel Colorfully" a kitschy rainbow assortment of leather goods and cheeky handbags. Of course my favorite item was the Lucky Cat from the "Hello Tokyo" collection, as well as the amazing floral printed dress of the "Shanghai" collection.
If you would have asked me 10 years ago if I would wear anything Kate Spade I would have laughed in your face. These days, with the help of creative director Deborah Lloyd. There is not an item in the store I wouldn't wear. Everything from the color choices to the embellishments are so carefully thought out not to mention, the vintage influences are some of the best I've seen on a modern brand. Stop in the store sometime, I promise you will be inspired beyond your wildest dreams!

Nashville Symphony Fashion Show 2014

Every year the Symphony Fashion Show is one of the shows I look forward to the most of any event in Nashville. It is not only the most beautiful venue Nashville has to offer, it is the amazing presentation and exquisite execution that keeps me going every year. This year's featured designer was Christian Siriano. As a fashion addict I am always one to stalk the collections seconds after they hit the runway, however, to be perfectly honest, his collections were never on my radar. That will be changing as I was absolutely blown away by every piece that was sent down the runway. His silhouettes were modern yet classic; a nod to Dior's revolutionary new look. Cinched waist lines and full gorgeous skirts, and the hats, oh my goodness the hats! Everything from the color stories to the divine fabrications were the work of absolute precision and genius. I could seriously go on and on, but I will leave you with some photos of my favorite looks.

Big thanks to Dave Felipe, The Nashville Symphony, and Gus Mayer

Private Edition Blogger Party

Since having baby, my blogging days have been few and far behind. Eight months into Mommy hood there are  seldom  events that really motivate me to leave my baby at home. The Private Edition blogger's party, however,  is one of such events. When I worked in cosmetics, YSL and Laura Mercier respectively, I met so many amazing ladies and gents that it is always so nice to run into a few familiar faces. Not to mention the other lovely blogging ladies of Nashville. For those of my readers that don't live in Nashville. Private Edition is a Nashville staple in the luxury cosmetics and cosmeceutical circle. Posted below are few of many amazing lines that Private Edition carries that are hard to find in our fair city. Manager, Hollie,  is a go to for any skincare tips and tricks as well as  a full staff of highly skilled artists. Private Edition is one stop that should most definitely be on your radar.

Wine Women & Shoes

Last Thursday proved that nothing can stop women from getting their shop on. With temperatures in the low 20s the 2nd annual Wine Women & Shoes event was packed to the gills with women doing just that, getting their shop on! Each year The YWCA of Nashville gathers the most stylish shops, salons and people for this event with hopes of raising funds for the Weaver Domestic Violence Center. It is stated that one out of every 4 women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime and the Weaver Center is paramount in helping these women safely flee these unfortunate situations. This years event featured amazing live and silent auction items, a fashion show and a live performance from country artist Ashley Monroe.  Not sure if their numbers are in as of yet, but judging from their tremendous turnout they exceeded their goal by a longshot.















Big thanks to Jenifer Lyle, Michelle Mowery Johnson
and the YWCA
