High - Low Fashion

The "high-low" fashion trend is nothing new. Remember when Sharon Stone turned red carpet heads at the 1998 Oscars in a Gap shirt and Vera Wang evening skirt? (Flawless, btw!) And it's perfectly okay for men to follow the trend as well. For some us, it's a more realistic (affordable) approach to fashion and personal style. I've always said, it's not what/who you wear but how you wear it. In this photo, I am wearing a denim shirt by one of my fave retailers, Banana Republic, the slim cut cargos are Gap, purple suede shoes by Cole Haan and the blazer... drum roll... Salvatore Ferragamo. Bam... and that's how you hit the high note!

Fit for a Diva


livi-rae-double-divas-fashionado

I know as much about fitting for bras as I do about birthing babies. BUT luckily, these Double Divas, Molly Hopkins and Cynthia Decker, are experts and will take great care of you. [I do know] a well-fitted bra is everything and since many women have never been professionally fit and measured a visit to the Livi Rae Lingerie boutique is a must. But wait!! You can't make it up to Livi Rae on Barrett Parkway OR you don't live in Atlanta... hey, NO problem! Molly and Cynthia have designed a genius way to offer their customers the Livi Rae experience from the comfort (and privacy) of their own home. Via SKYPE, you'll get a bra fitting session with Molly, Cynthia or one of the experts at LiviRae. Watch the video above for details. 

AND just to say "thank you," use promo code LRBLOGGEROFF and get $10 off any online purchase at Livi Rae! *Good through September 30th.*

Luxury has a new zip code in Atlanta. If it's been a while since you've been to Virginia Highland, then you are overdue a visit. Veteran retailer, Winter Hodges,offers you a shopping experience with the opening of his third location in VaHi. First came the sophisticated 310 Rosemont, followed by it's younger sister Winter Wren and now, the swanky William Wren, shoes and accessories boutique has arrived. Upon entering William Wren, the most enticing scent of rich leather says "welcome, come in." It's a fabulous sensory overload like no other, because while the smell of leather is seducing you, your eyes are feasting on the super-sexy store layout and your fingers want nothing more than to feel the merchandise.

What Your Clothing Says About You (Whether You Like it Or Not)

by guest author: Alison Stanton

You might not realize it, but every time you go out into public, you are telling total strangers about the type of person you are based on what you are wearing. 
Granted, these snap judgments might not always be fair, but as Psychology Today notes, our clothing says a lot more about us than we might realize.
The following examples give some insight as to what types of threads are most likely to be seen on which types of people:
