Sports Illustrated hits Nashville for launch party

Word on the street is that Sports Illustrated has chosen the city of Nashville as it's destination for the launch of the Swimsuit issue. On Feb 11 & 12th, SI will take to the streets of downtown Nashville for a two day party including all of the models from the current casting and musical guests Kings of Leon and Mikky Ekko. In honor of this occasion I have chosen three of my favorite vintage shots of Sports Illustrated.

John Rawlings

John Rawlings was a Conde Nast fashion photograph from the 1930s-1960s. He had 200 Glamour and Vogue covers to his credit.





 I find his work fascinatingly simple and elegant.

Nordstrom Rack Nashville Preview Party.

Tonight I attended the Nordstrom Rack Nashville preview party. While I am no stranger to a crowded elbow room full of fashionistas, I was not expecting what I encountered tonight. I received an "exclusive invite only" flyer via email last month inviting all bloggers and fashionables to the new Nordstrom Rack (Opening Officially Tomorrow) funnily enough everyone and their mother showed up in every fashion. My guess is they had some trouble turning people away at the door. Nevertheless, it was an event I am glad I attended as I scored two pairs of Prada sunglasses that I have been stalking at for steal of a deal. For the savvy shopper it is stocked with some interesting RTW and bridge clothing lines at very reasonable prices.  I would have liked to have seen more designer and couture, but hey thats just me. Here are some of my fave finds of the evening!

I forgot the name of the designer of this top, but how cute are the tigers embroidered on the epaulettes?

Marc by Marc Jacobs pants $159.00
Kate Spade Lips sunglasses…Swoon! Only $59.99

DVF dress $350

Nordstrom Rack is located at
Brentwood Place Shopping Center
Doors open 8am tomorrow!

Missoni RTW Spring 15

Missoni is one of my all time favorite fashion houses. I am a sucker for texture and wild colors and they embody all of those. What I love most about Missoni is their ability to follow their own instinct on trends. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from their Spring 15 collection.

Bebe Buell...

…and Steven Tyler who bore actress Liv Tyler is the answer to the question posted on our instagram page. I have posted on the topic of this fantastic woman before, when her book "Rebel Heart" was released. She is one of my favorite muses of Rock and Roll. Not only is she gorgeous but her authenticity and true Rock and Roll spirit is unduplicated. Tomorrow night in Nashville, she debuts a new single and I, for one, am really excited to attend. Below are images of Buell with some of her closest friends in the Rock and Roll circle.

Be still my heart...



House of Holland nailed it with their 1960s psychedelic floral prints.
