Once upon a vintage lovers dream...

Hello Everyone, I have been out of the fashion blogosphere for a little while as I am 8.5 months pregnant with my first baby, it's a girl!!! Indeed the fashion gods are on my side ;)
 I can try to blame my lack of blogging on my pregnancy, but quite frankly it is mostly due to the fact that there have been very few newsworthy fashion events going on lately.  That is, until now...
Not one, but two of fashion's heavy hitters are auctioning off their wardrobes.
Firstly, the late great Diana Vreeland's wardrobe will be auctioned off this weekend by Kerry Taylor Auctions. For anyone who does not know the legacy of Diana Vreeland, she was the editor in Chief of both Harper Bazaar and American Vogue with a career in fashion spanning almost 50 years. You can only imagine this woman's archives being that she was close friends with every legendary designer that lived. The most sought after piece is the haute couture gown she commisioned from Yves Saint Laurent  to wear to the Met Ball in 1985 which is embellished with  Lesage embroidery, beading  and golden glass stones, is expected to sell for between £2,000 to £3,000. []
The second collection up for sale is that of  British journalist Suzy Menkes. She will be auctioning her collection off at Christie's. Menkes also has an extremely impressive background in fashion and will be selling off  her archives which she has held in storage for many years. Some of her collection includes iconic vintage pieces from the house of Pucci, Ossie Clark, YSL and so many more. As a major vintage collector I will be tracking these sales. If only my budget allowed me to buy some of these pieces...this is what dreams are made of.

Nashville Symphony Spring 2013 Fashion Show featuring Monique Lhuillier

Every year the Nashville Symphony hosts the most anticipated fashion event in town, The Nashville Symphony Spring Fashion Show. This year's presentation featured Monique Lhuillier's Fall 2013 collection hosted by Gus Mayer. Lhuillier's inspiration for fall 2013 drew from objects found in nature such as spider webs and malachite gemstones. It is apparent in her  focus on precision digital prints and texture. I have posted some of my very favorites from the collection...enjoy!

Big thanks to the Nashville Symphony & Laurie Davis

This is the Joint

 In case you haven't noticed Nashville is on the radar for some amazing fashion folks lately...hello Grace Coddington, Andre Leon Talley and Sally Lyndley to name a few.  In addition to the people of fashion gracing our stage, are the iconic fashion images curated by Susan Sherrick and Libby  Callaway for their latest endeavor "The Joint."  The joint is a new series of pop up art shows with themed concepts. Being that we are in the midst of Nashville Fashion Week, the pair cleverly picked fashion photography as the first theme for their showcase. Images by  Richard Avedon, William Klein, Horst P. Horst and many others. This is seriously one of the coolest and low key installations of some of fashion's most iconic photos. A must see!

Shopping Night Out Afterparty, Nashville Fashion Week Day 3

Yesterday's evening festivities were held at Kocktails and Kouture, a new concept boutique in the Gulch. The Bodden sisters have juxtapositioned a women's boutique within a nightclub setting which makes for a rather glamourous vibe!
