a YELP shindig

im excited to share an event with you all-
from the Yelp Team:
     To kick off our pledge to shop locally this holiday season, you and a guest are invited to the next all-Yelper party: Yelp’s Stylin’ Shindig! 

If you like to shop, if you like to eat and drink, if you like to dance… this party is for you: fantastic local boutiques will be bringing in their finest wares and selling them for at least 50% off regular price! We’ll have a bevy of wonderful drinks, local eats, and DJ Dibiase will be back spinning to get you dancing! Photography provided by Mike Cooke of Mikedesigns and Brittany Wages, and OMG Booth will be on hand with their crazy fun photobooth antics! 

** You must be RSVPd on Yelp to get into this event. We’ll be checking at the door!

though personally i have only shopped at The Beehive i’m excited to check out the other stores, brands, artists, as well as the sips + snacks! not to mention i’m all about Sunday Funday!

if you are not familiar with Yelp, you should meet and be very good friends. the site is a great way to research restaurants, salons, stores, hotels, nightlife, art and so much more. it really helped me when i first moved to Atlanta and still find myself referring to it weekly.

hope to see everyone at this event looking sharp!
have a good week,

flare deetz:
unicorn necklace: vintage, elephant necklace: j crew-gift from my brother’s gf, single chain: vintage, blue button: Kentuck craft fair, pink button: gift from friend after her trip to Spain
after spotting a shopper at UO wearing a very similar version of this coat all casual-like i’ve since decided it doesn’t need to be a super fancy night to bring it out. it’s no longer going to sit lonely in my closet just because it’s glamourous, i had fun wearing it to dinner and drinks as well as around town the next day.


big apologies,
with the new job and fighting off a nasty bug i’ve been hella behind on comments, outfits, news and all things internet related. i hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was splendid and you all are as pumped for the upcoming holidays as i :))
speaking of …. i have some BIG NEWS to share!!! recently i was asked to join forces with “ATL’s freshest girl-based blog” and local party promoters ::::

meet ZoeDarlin:
behind the lens is where you can find Zoe at most parties, although if you checked the dance floor first she could also be spotted in or around boogie’n down! being a grad of the Art Institute of Atlanta keeps the youngest Darlin on top of her game when it comes to capturing all the right party moments!

Blue Tiers

months ago i reluctantly tried on a blue tiered Lauren Conrad for Target dress at Rag-O-Rama..i think that girl is a joke but the dress was way to beautiful to pass up. plus it was super cheap-$12.00 i think..anyways the second i put it on i knew i didn’t care what the tag said, it was MINE! i’ve worn it many times now to several different events, here’s some photos of myself and the dress in action:
