one of the advantages of living in a college town is the extra perks that come with a university. of course, we all know about football games. and the georgia bulldogs are off to a great start this year. 3-0 in the SEC. GO DAWGS. when the dawgs play Ole’ Miss come november 4th our house will be bustling with friends and family and, of course, i’ll share our tailgate party.
but UGA also has a performing arts center where all sorts of wonderful concerts, recitals, plays, and ballets take place. so mr. style and i sauntered down to ramsey center to listen to the 3B’s – Bach, Brahms, and Beethoven. to make things a bit more interesting, the pianists pounded the keyboards on instruments said composers played. the harpsichord, fortepiano, and a baby grand.\
most of my day-to-day outfits come from affordable brands like Talbots, J.Crew, Ann Taylor. and we all know i’m a sucker for clothes that hail from Target. even H&M and Zara have some darn cute stuff that i sport from time-to-time. but i have never hesitated to add luxury brands into the mix, especially when it comes to work or evening wear. akris punto happens to be a favorite high-end brand of mine due to their beautifully constructed garments. last fall at New York Fashion Week i had the pleasure to visit backstage then attend the akris punto show. the theme focused on romantic evening wear, and the gowns were absolutely spectacular!
luxury brands tend to focus on small details. notice the double pockets on the right side. or the stand-up collar with button flap. the dress has a fun and flirty hemline with slits on either side and flounce in back. this is what sets a luxury item apart but also drives up the price.
and we all know how much i love pink!
what a delightful way to spend a sunday afternoon! there’s something soothing about classical music. especially when a harpsichord is involved. i hope you all enjoyed your weekend, ladies! can you believe it’s monday?! back to the nine-to-five grind.
