Girl Friends


have I mentioned that I have beautiful and talented friends? probably a few times. but it’s TRUE! can’t help but brag on them. regarding said friends I wanted to share a photoshoot my gal pal Jess Jones participated in with Stacey of Stacey Bode Photography at an old movie prop warehouse (um, talk about DREAM photoshoot destination!!!) Jess is so comfortable in front of a camera and you can really see it and I just adore her wardrobe! the outcome of their shoot was beautiful!
styling, hair and makeup by Jess Jones, photography by Stacey

after this shoot was posted I reached out to Jess and said “I MUST SHARE THIS ON MY BLOG” and she was all for it..then a week or so went by and then she told me Stacey had won “Best Photographer” in Creative Loafing’s Best of 2013 which is pretty huge around here! Big Congrats Stacey!

to read more about Stacey, view her amazing work, look into photos for your wedding/baby/self — check out her site.

*thanks for allowing me to share ladies!*


this is a bit out of chronological order but we shall just call it a “flashback” since it was Aug 22nd when I went out to dinner and art gallery hopping with some friends. documented mine and Elizabeth’s outfits along with a few snaps around the galleries in the West Side area and Poncey Highlands.
newest accessory: THE UMBRELLA.
always raining so why not have a cute one, this one is via Target!
Free People top and necklace, LOFT pants, RagORama boots and purse (vintage), Target umbrella, BCBG bracelet
American Apparel maxi, thrifted vest, TOMS+Serpentine edges 
after dining at Ormsby’s we headed to Kai Lin gallery to pop in and say hi to Jonny “Double Wolf” Warren and other artists hanging out drinking and doodling.

Sam Parker + Molly chatting and doodling
after Kai Lin we went to BEEP BEEP to view my roommate Chelsea Raflo’s exhibit which was showing from the beginning of August till now (show is about to come down). her and Mike Germon collaborated on a mixed show of some independent pieces along with a joint-effort mural in the back.
cut out stills from one of her stop motion videos
really need to watch her create each frame, one by one, and then to see it all come together and MOVE inside a video box she crafted by hand as well-so proud!
recognize the tiny person above wearing the ASOS Alice in Wonderland style dress? IT’S ELIZABETH from the above pics (with a lot more hair…this was pre-pixie cut obv..)! months ago, Chelsea and Eliz did a shoot together and Chelsea cut out some frames and used the stills of Eliz for one of the videos and then reused them in the dual effort collage, hoping we get to keep some of these around the house after the show comes down!

don’t know about you all but I’m glad my labor day weekend was chill. I desperately needed to catch up on some house stuff, freelance stuff and LIFE stuff.
good luck with going back to work tomorrow!

Blogger Brunch

after taking Monday evening to recoup from the weekend and get things together for the week (which most people do Sunday night, however, usually I’m still having fun!) I’ve put together the photos from the blogger brunch Natalie of Pocket of Presh, Kelly of R-Ki-Tekt and I had on Saturday in White Provisions. we met at the yummy West Egg and caught up on our busy lives and THEIR BABIES that are on the way-yes, they are BOTH pregnant! this is Natalie’s first and it’s too early to know the gender and Kelly’s second child but first boy-so happy for both of them! it was fun chatting about baby names, pregnancy stuff (yes, I find this interesting and not weird at all!) and we even went to the cutest kid store called Seed Factory. we also dropped by the Free People and SimplyPut. here’s what we wore:
I love how we all three wore complimentary patterns and colors! even though we all took pics of our brunch I didn’t take any with my fancy camera-just iphone for Instagraming-oh well, it was YUMMY! 
you can barely see it but Natalie has the cutest baby bump, eeeee!
she’s wearing a Loft jumpsuit and sunnies, Target shoes, Michael Kors watch, and Presh Studios clutch
Natalie made this clutch from soft perferated leather-all her designs are available on her Etsy shop!
how cute is her baby bump?!? talking with Kelly about children had me in laughter tears, she has the best sense of humor about having and raising kids.
Kelly made this necklace from geometric shaped hand painted wooden beads and sterling chain-all her designs are available in her Etsy shop!
she’s wearing Marshall’s dress, Target sandals, Kate Spade bag, necklace by (r-ki-tekt) and Gap sunnies
smiling for sun (finally it shows its BRIGHT face! but then it totally stormed…)
and now for my brunch baby bump!! 
I’m wearing a Madewell x Alexa Chung dress, H&M hat, Clarks wedges, Kate Spade bag and Clothing Warehouse sunnies.

best of luck to my blogger lady friends and their lil bundles of joy on the way!

tomorrow I’m going to see Jimmy Eat World, high school dreams coming true y’all!



now that you’ve gotten to know my gal pal Elizabeth, this next look will surely have you even more in love with her quirky taste:
-wedges by Steve Madden-
so Elizabeth, how did you score a TOMS bike?
It’s a special edition made for TOMS employees as a gift this past Christmas!

what is it that you do for TOMS?
I am the Southeast Retail Marketing Coordinator. I work with TOMS retailers in my region to get them trained on our company and products, get stores marketing and display materials for seasonal campaigns, organize and execute Style Your Sole events and be the eyes and ears of what’s going on at the retail level in my 7 states! 
-a sneak peak at her adorable home decor that will appear in the next post!-
top, scarf, skirt-thrifted, bracelets-Grandmother’s, shoes-Steve Madden, bike-Linus for TOMS

thanks for checking out the second part of my spotlight on Elizabeth’s style. i won’t say i’m saving the best for last…but the next (and last)look is pretty sharp!



meet Elizabeth
& her new pastel hair:

Elizabeth lives in a 1960’s carriage house apartment tucked away in the Virginia Highlands. When she’s not hitting the road (or sky) visiting accounts for TOMS..she’s decorating, cooking or catching up with friends. Her personal style is much like her abode: eclectic and improvised with nods to eras past. When I think of a someone who takes unique pieces and turns them into fashionable outfits and layers like a pro, I think of Liz!
see for yourself, below are photos we shot around the shopping and bar district in the VA Highlands as well as a few questions to get to know this fashionable Atlanta Lady:


What’s your secret to great finds?
Keep an open mind! You never know what you’ll find in that thrift store you always pass or at a big-box retailer’s sale. I never count anywhere out! 




Who’s closet would you most like to borrow from? 
To be honest…. any of the Olsens’.

What is your fashion faux-pas? 
I tend to over-accessorize. I just get excited about several pieces at one time! I’m always reminding myself less is more. 


What’s your favorite thing about your neighborhood? 

The big, beautiful trees and lush greenery. And I can walk to some pretty fantastic spots! 

outfit deets: 
jacket: Designer’s Closet by Billabong, top: thrifted (was a dress that I cut), pants: vintage via Rag-O-Rama, shoes: Urban Outfitters, brooch: from Flashy, bracelet: Macy’s, clutch: thrifted, sunnies: TOMS, hair: Green Peridot Salon-Tallahassee, FL

FYI: this only one of three outfits we shot so visit again (early next week!) for two more looks as well as a peak inside her adorable carriage home!

have a GREAT weekend party people!
