Free People: THE RIDE

Free People puts so much thought into their catalog’s story lines and photography it blows me away.  For this month they enlisted one of my favorite models, Erin Wasson, a free spirit babe who knows how to rock some flowy boho clothes.  She is the definition of hip if you ask me. Not only did they choose the perfect lady model they also enlisted a hottie as her motorcycle riding boyfriend that proposes to her in the desert.  This brand knows how to make an out of the ordinary catalog and that also goes for Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters-who are under the same corporate umbrella. See for yourself and then follow the link at the end of the post to view the video!

Free People’s March collection sheds its winter layers and embraces a bare look for spring. The collection features an eclectic mix of pieces from ‘barely there’ tops layered with strappy bras, to bold South American-inspired denim, and breezy maxis. Accessories focus on long drapey chains and statement arm cuffs to complete the look.

Watch the video of the romantic cross-country motorcycle ride here!  Not that I’m thinking about eloping-my mom would kill me as we both want to plan a beautiful rustic Southern wedding-but wouldn’t that be adventurous/thrilling/fun/romantic?!

PS: It’s my birthday month and I’m not picky, love the whole collection, hint hint wink wink! (But if you twist my arm to pick I’d love the red maxi!)

12762307055_431fdf5957_bHope everyone’s week has gotten started on the right foot. I’m in the midst of wrapping up my last week of work before starting a NEW JOB! Next Monday I’ll be working at Indigo Studio as their office administer wearing many hats and handling many roles. I’ll be doing everything from office duties to renting camera equipment, helping on shoots, organizing and hunting down props and assisting the producers and CEO. I’m extremely excited for this new chapter of my life!  While I’ll miss the little family I’ve built working at the mart and designer studio for the past three years it’s time  to move on and is actually quite overdue.   My current boss’s are very happy for me and know that this is a step in the right direction for my future. Wish me luck!
12762444463_aba03de686_bI’m wearing an Urban Outfitters jacket, Pamela Love for Lucky Magazine shirt, H&M skirt, Sam Edelman boots, Kate Spade purse, TOM sunnies and H&M beanie. Wore this to The Warren for some biscuits and gravy and beermosas. If you like beer and orange juice than a beermosa is your new friend! It’s like a mimosa but in my opinion better because champagne is a recipe for a headache or belly ache for this lady. I’ve made them at home using Hoegaarden or Blue Moon and had them out at restaurants, do yourself a favor and try it out!

NYFW: Best Streetstyle Sites


*above photo by Angel’s Point of View

Each New York Fashion Week season I mainly get excited for one thing: STREET STYLE. Since I’ve only experienced the event from home via the internet, Instagram or Twitter the most realistic aspect to me is style on the street. I have several go-to sites for the best coverage of what I like to call “the concrete runway” and I wanted to share them with you, not an any particular order, here they are:


Mr. Newton


He’s a photographer and blogger with an eye for pretty girls in pretty clothes and usually snaps good angles. I like that it’s not always super fancy attire that I can actually relate to my own style.


Jak and Jil


Shot by Tommy Ton this blog is full of high-res up-close shots of fashionable men and women.  I’ve always enjoyed his focus on accessories and shoes.  His work is on and so you could also visit those sites to see photos that don’t make it to his Tumblr.


Harpers Bazaar


Harper’s is always capturing great street style and are a go-to for festival style as well, really like their large high-quality images. Also they take notice to fashion bloggers which is something I definitely appreciate.




As well-rounded as the magazine, is loaded with fashion week information such as complete shows and street style. Chose the above photo from the current NYFW because I’m mildly obsessed with her coat, ok, very obsessed!




I feel like this is a “DUH.” but their street style photography is different than the common strike-a-pose full outfit shot and like you’d expect they have detailed coverage of all things fashion week related even parties!


Vanessa Jackman


I really admire Vanessa’s site, it’s clean and simple, her photography is beautiful and she seems to really connect with the people she photographs.  The photos are soft and nicely edited. She travels all over the world so you can see style from Paris to Milan.


Refinery 29


Big fan of their emails which are usually funny and informative and also a fan of their style coverage from fashion week to the day-to-day streets of large cities, R29 is a must for a daily site and NYFW.

Additional great sites to visit: Style Caster, Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue or fashion bloggers that are in attendance such as Blonde Salad or Song of Style.  Have a super weekend!


A little behind with recapping the Leslie Tessler trunk show but hey, better late than never, right? The event was small and personal. We met the designer, determined our personal color palette and nibbled on sweets while catching up with fellow bloggers.

1. White Professional Color Lab helped a few select bloggers determine our personal color palettes. First step was determining if your skins tones were best suited with “warm” or “cool” and then within those two categories you were given a palette. I was told I looked best with warm colors and was given the “fire” palette. Each of us were so different, super neat process! As it turns out the dress I wore fit into my palette, guess I know what works after all this time of figuring out what doesn’t through trial and error!
2. Faux fur collar accessory Leslie offers to spice up the capes.
3. Capes waiting on the racks for a new home.
4. Lovely environment for the trunk show!


Banana Republic dress, Anthro booties, UO socks, vintage hat
Since I’m an lady on a budget I unfortunately didn’t leave with a beautiful new designer cape but I do still have the really cute one my friend gave me in the Spring and will totes be rocking this thing through the Fall/Winter!
This weekend’s photobooth I set up at Backbone Fest hosted by Birds of a Feather Creative was a sweet success as was the festival!! It was so much fun seeing local ladies showcase their unique talents! Can’t wait to see what next year brings with all the girl power surrounding this event!

ATL Streets

in this month’s issue of Jezebel I have photos featured in both the Street Style section and Best-Dressed ATL!!!! here’s a snap shot from the digital copy that you can view here.
loving the very-on-trend crop tops, the zig zag pants and turban and the dude rocking some white denim-go you!
here’s my little contributor’s blurb, the question for this month was “what is your idea of a ‘perfect date’ around Atlanta?” I described mine and Dustin’s second date. after tossing around the frisbee we wanted to get more competitive and so we set up a frisbee golf course (placed 3 different objects in different areas that you had to throw and get closest to, while tallying up tosses) lucky for our competitive personalities we tied each time! sweet memory that I think is perfect :D
