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.

A waved wall which runs the length of the store is not only dramatic but alluring with an impressive collection of high end designer shoes and accessories by labels like Frye, Sperry, Jack Roger, Kate Spade, Hunter, Polo, Vince, Marc Jacobs, Alice & Olivia, Nike, Peter Millar, Cole Haan and more.

Mr. Winter Hodges. [Not only does he have a great name] but he is one of the nicest, most charismatic people you will ever meet. 

Helloooo signature cocktails! Peach Bourbon sweet tea and watermelon margaritas ... 

The crowd never let up! I looked at my watch at 7:20PM and William Wren was filling up quickly. It was after 9PM and everyone was still there! A stylish boutique attracted a stylish crowd.

Winter Hodges and I. Cheers!

Winter and publicist Caren West. I'd bet money they're talking shoes and bags, not "business." 

I can't resist a doggie. This four-legged guest was almost a year old.
