Breast cancer awareness and philanthropy has always held a special place with me and even partially let to me choosing my college sorority (ZTA) based on it’s affiliation with breast cancer education and awareness. That being said I was very excited when I was invited to participate in the Cure on the Catwalk event for the second year. Meeting and getting to know woman who are strong, brave and kicking cancer’s ass is very rewarding. Let me share this year’s experience with ladies of the Pink Heels Foundation and Southern Blog Society-
This year I was paired with Kristen, a 27 year old breast cancer survivor who’s beat it twice now after being diagnosed at the young age of 23. She and I were matched with LuluLemon Athletica at Shops Around Lenox where met a week prior to the event to pick out our catwalk looks. Though choosing a look encompassing pink wasn’t mandatory we both agreed that pops of pink would be a good choice. After choosing our looks and thanking the gals at LuluLemon we walked over to Seven Lamps and had some drinks and really got to know each other with conversations about beer, music, boys and Atlanta.
Because the event was end of September we didn’t want to look to Summery and also didn’t want to look TOO athletic because we knew we’d be around boutique dresses and high heels. We thought that the herringbone was a good fit for Fall and the plum with pink stripes wasn’t too much of that color we both don’t wear that often.

Getting prepped and ready for the catwalk with makeup and hair stylists from Van Michael Salon in Buckhead. Kristen was given a cute pink hair extension to sport for the night and I requested a low side bun with braids.
At first we didn’t know how in the world we’d fit in with our athletic wear with all the dressed up cocktail attire and then we just said, whatever, and had fun with it (see below photo of Kristen running in place on the catwalk!) Much to our surprise we fell in love with our pants of the evening! Her structured herringbone and my harem pants we both so comfy and stylish we were wishing we could take them home!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that this moment was captured! Let me explain. So, Kristen and I were goofing off and joking about how we were the “athletes” of the group so we said we were going to jog out to and from the catwalk and when we were supposed to pause and ‘strike a pose’ we were just going to run in place. So that’s what this is, her running in place! So good.

Thanks so much to all the sponsors, Pink Heels, Van Michael, W Buckhead, Southern Blog Society and especially Kristen for a wonderful event!


this weekend was pretty laid back with a last minute potluck held at my house and a trip to Madison, GA to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and eat true country food. before skipping town i grabbed some brunch and beermosa’s at Midway pub and wore more ivory and blush-two colors i’ve really grown to love to incorporate in my wardrobe. encountered a furry friend that posed for the glam cam!

outfit: top H&M, bottoms Hotkiss, kicks Frye, bag Kate Spade 

remember the brand Hot Kiss? i do! wore it back in the day and while shopping at TJ MAXX in Cocoa Beach, FL back in August found these light washed floral skinnies. even though i’m not a huge fan of lowrise jeans anymore i had to have these (esp at $19.99!).

gotta love a deal and a throw back to high school!

next post: photos from Cute on the Catwalk!



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!


not the biggest fan of pink but i sure do love little pops of pink on these ladies! Stockholm Streetstyle always has the most inspiring images,
happy FRIDAY!
