This is a photo shoot I did a few months ago with some very talented folks.  We shot at a great, new restaurant in Nashville called The Flipside. I am still dreaming about the tater tot nachos.  Yes, you read correctly.. a dish with tater tots and nachos!! 

The decor of this place inspired me to style the fashion as modern day, retro.  

This team was so fun and great to work with, we have so many amazing talent in Nashville.  Love being apart of this community!

Saturday Night Fever....

Outfit Details:
** Jumpsuit: Vintage (love this one) / Heels: Donald J. Pliner (old) / Necklace: Lovmely via 9th&Elm (get here) / Belt: Vintage / Bracelet: Vintage / Watch: Vintage / Ring: Hardwear Merry / Earrings: Nora Catherine **

I came across this bright little number on a recent trip to Vancouver. The color is what attracted me, then the fit and comfort sold me. I am looking forward to layering with blazers for Fall. 

A great, delicate necklace has been on my wish list for months. I finally found one on 9th&Elm, which is a great shopping site for unique clothing, accessories and home goods. This Lovmely necklace was perfect for an outfit that has so much going on.

What items are on your wish list?  

Hello flyways!   Geez, where's hair and make up when you need them? :) 

Thanks, to my girl, Abby for taking my pictures!

Cherry Blow Dry Bar Has Came To Brentwood, TN

I finally had the chance to try out the new Cherry Blow Dry Bar in Brentwood, Tn.  It's such a great place to have someone else do your hair for a night out.  Not to mention a good blow out tends to last a few days.  Who doesn't want to not have to style their hair for a few days?!

They offer many different styles to choose from: Big and Bouncy (our choice), Straight Out, Wonderous Waves, Beachy Keen, Short and Sweet, Up and Away, On the Fringe, Braided and Giddy Up Pony. 

Each blow out is only $35 and they also offer extensions and treatments for additional prices. 

We turned our visit into a girls day, sipping some bubbles while enjoying some great girl talk. 

Cherry Blow Dry Bar uses all Kevin Murphy products which are all sulfite-free and they can cater any products to what works for your hair.

Exploring the Girl I Am....

Outfit Links:
** Skirt: Revivalist / Dress worn as a Top: Pura Vida Vintage (also seen here) / Heels: DMSX by Donald J. Pliner (get here) / Belt: Vintage / Ring: Hardwear Merry / Earrings: Unknown **

I had the chance to meet the ladies behind the Revivalist brand.  What stood out to me first was the message behind the label - "Our mission is not to create another mold for women to fit, but to accommodate their lifestyle and magnify their existing beauty." 
What a great message for all women.  I am guilty of questioning my body based on the trends that are popular, cough...crop tops...cough....  We, as females, can be so hard on our selves and I love that this label tries to create designs that don't want us to question our size or shape.  
These ladies are trying to get more funding to "kickstart" their message and designs to the public.  You can see their Kickstarter page here.  Also, below is their amazing video.

I love this floral skirt and couldn't wait to style it.  The original pattern was hand painted by the talented ladies, Monica and Megan, of Revivalist.  Crazy awesome, right?! I paired it with my newest vintage find from Pura Vida Vintage, which is actually a dress.  The skirt of the dress help add some volume to show more of the floral skirt. I wanted to make it as full as possible to get a bigger impact.  Also, I love the texture of the top which I thought was a great contrast to the bottom.  Added some gold accessories to add a little shine and called it a day!  A bright and cheerful day.  

Thank you, Abby, for taking my photos.  Had so much fun! :)

Hometown Hidden Gems: Nashville - Pura Vida Vintage

I am participating in RelayRides' Hometown Hidden Gems campaign. They are a peer-to-peer car sharing, rental company (kinda like Airbnb for cars). Pretty smart idea and very inexpensive compared to car rental companies.

They are getting together people's favorite spots in cities around the country to help out all the travelers out there. Giving tourists non-tourist options. Travel like a local! 

Of course, I thought of my favorite shopping gems in Nashville. Pura Vida Vintage is one of my favorite places to find one-of-a-kind vintage items at a great price. It is located on the famous Music Row which is home to everything music business. It in itself is a place to see. 

PVV is able to fit such a variety of items in a small space, yet not feeling like you have to dig.  Everything is merchandised in categories, which as a stylist I love! It's so easy to comb the entire store to find your can't-live-without items.

I tend to make a pile of options to try on, then head to the dressing room. 
This seems to always become a fashion show between Krystle (the owner) and I, which makes it so fun! She loves getting to see her customers enjoy vintage as much as she does. 

** Also, if you find a great piece but needs a little tailoring... well.. there is an in-house tailor shop on site.  And customers get 20% off alterations! **

 {Sorry, everyone.. I bought this lovely dress, but everything else I am wearing is still available.}

See, a fashion show! I felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.  Well, minus the hooker part, oh, and Richard Gere's credit card...   

Don't worry boys... she has an entire side of the store dedicated to you! It's probably one of the best, if not THE best, place to shop men's vintage fashion and accessories.
