A “Wearing” With Friends

Alexis

I have the most talented friends.  We of course all know Erin takes amazing photos.  I also count an editor of one the most popular shopping and lifestyle blogs, a principal graphic designer, a jewelry designer and small business owner, and what can only be described as a rock star among my closest friends.  Here are two more ridiculously talented artists I had the pleasure of enjoying drinks with at Motor Bar in Detroit a little while ago.

Alexis is a digital producer at Skidmore Studio and freelance designer.  She’s one of the most creative people I’ve ever met and is always brimming with ideas that no one else would think of.   It truly seems that nothing is impossible for her.  She also happens to be a great person to go to when I need to vent about any personal problem.

Alexander, A.K.A. Greater Alexander, is a Detroit-based indie-folk artist.  He almost seems like the next coming of Paul Simon, yet he manages to still evoke a genuine uniqueness in his music.  Listen for yourself here.

Yep, everyone I hang out with is super-talented, and I wear jumpsuits and write about it ;)

Hey there, Baby Doll

Ace & Jig

We all love a little 90’s nostalgia from time to time, or at least I do, and I love me a baby doll dress.  They can be dressed up or down, and they’re perfect for spring with some thigh high socks and ankle boots, and when summer arrives, they can be worn all on their own!  As much as I love clothes, there’s nothing better than when it’s nice enough outside to wear just one piece!

Mercury Burger Bar

Everyone in the North East feels my pain right now.  If you don’t, you soon will.  (Don’t worry friends and family on the coast, your day will suck tomorrow as much as mine did today!)  Just two short days ago, I was sitting at my picnic table outside enjoying a beer with Josh and Laika, wearing a tank top.  I was wearing the tank top, not Laika.  Anyway, we woke up to snow on the ground this morning.  Michigan is weird.  New England is also weird.  April is weird.  It’s been 27 years of this.  None of it should be shocking to me at this point, but it still surprises me every time.  It’s as if I repress how awful the desperate wait for truly nice weather actually is.  April is definitely one of those months when you can be in a sundress one day, and have to break out the boots, cashmere, and jacket the next.  At least there are milkshakes and burgers in the world.

This Day Was a Dream

macarons

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hosting the V2V + Jenny Yoo trunk show event in Ann Arbor, with V2V bridal coordinator and fellow Lionel Richie enthusiast, Leah.  We had a lot of fun, and it was so great to see some fellow brides have that ah ha moment.  A huge thanks to Tea Haus for supplying the macarons, to Everyday Wines for the champagne, and to Heather Nash for taking these beautiful photos.  A BIG thanks to my friend, Stephanie, the stunning bride-to-be pictured here.  She happens to be marrying another dear friend of mine, and I’m so excited for their wedding!  Of course, none of these is the dress she’s officially wearing on her day (couldn’t reveal that one duh) but if these ones are the no’s, just think how gorgeous she’ll be in the yes!
