SHOPPING WITH ELLE: Must have shoes!

It's been awhile since I've done a 'Shopping with Elle' post, so it's only befitting that I start with one of the staple pieces to any wardrobe . . . . . . SHOES!  Behind I've snapped pics of some of my recent shoe purchases and I'd love to hear how you'd rock them.


I'll start first with the most shocking purchase of them all . . . . . flats!  While I typically wear heels with everything, however the summer months call for more walking and outdoor events.  Although they come in blue, black, and blush (as pictured here), I opted for the blush which can easily be worn with anything.

EVENT RECAP: Style & Spirits with Eunice and Iola Salon

This Sunday, I had the opportunity and privilege to attend the soft launch of Eunice and Iola Salon at Villa Antonio Ballantyne hosted by Detra Jones and Donna Riley, featuring salon owners Bruce Brown Jr (Master Stylist) and Kevin Long.  The event kicked off with a cocktail hour featuring a variety of hors d'oeuvres, baked pastries topped with fresh fruits, and signature cocktails.  Owners, Bruce Brown Jr and Kevin Long were on hand to meet and greet guest, as well as make initial introductions, as a host of stylish ladies (and a few gentlemen) discussed the latest trends and styles.

Royal Tea Party: RECAP

Last Sunday I hosted my Royal Tea Party at the NoDa arts district and I truly had a blast with these ladies.  We talked, we laughed, we shopped, we drank tea and ate delectable delights, but most of all we encouraged each other.  Check out a few pics below!
