The countdown to the 21st Annual
Jeffrey Fashion Cares
officially began last night as hosts and patrons gathered at Jeffrey Atlanta at Phipps Plaza. Many mark Jeffrey Fashion Cares as the kick off to the Fall fashion season in the south and based by the energy and enthusiasm at the Patron Party, there is no doubt that turning "21" will be epic! JFC will be held on Monday, August 26th at the American Cancer Society and will benefit
. Caren West PR, as well as the event Co-Chairs, were very tight-lipped about event details which could ONLY mean one thing - BIG, something big is in the works! Promise to keep you posted. *For complete Jeffrey Fashion Cares information, visit their website,

He's handsome, talented and knows how to design for women and that my lady friends is what you're gonna really love about fashion designer
You can find his designs all over the USA but in Atlanta, the Hilton Hollis label is exclusive to
located at the
Shops Around Lenox
. I had the pleasure of monopolizing nearly ninety minutes of Hilton during his two-day Trunk Show at Tootsies. [So I can tell you first hand that he is an amazing and gifted designer.] His aesthetic is clean and modern. His approach, innovative wearability. What does this mean for you? Fabulous clothes that are on trend and fit beautifully. Hilton's sensibility with textiles is rich. He uses bold colors in combination with sumptuous textures like soft leathers, chiffon, velvets and crepe satins. As a designer, Hilton naturally stays current, which in turn, which keeps you always looking fresh. But the Hilton Hollis woman is more than that... she stands out [in a great way!] The secret may lie in the impeccable construction and attention to detail. Creative and intelligent patterning, darts and seams in strategic places, like the waist, hips and thigh areas work with every body type to flatter, enhance or even subdue. One thing is certain, you will turn heads when when wearing Hilton Hollis.
for Coke! NO not that kind of coke [anymore]...
The fashion designer is the 2013 creative director for Diet Coke, replacing 2012's creative director,
Jean Paul Gaultier
. In celebration of Diet Coke's 30th anniversary, Marc Jacobs designed three limited edition cans representing three decades. So why is Marc Jacobs shirtless in the ads? What does that have to do with Diet Coke? Nothing. The designer is almost 50 years old, has a rock hard bod and loves to be naked. Read more about Jacobs / Diet Coke,
Am I in love? Obsessed? Deranged? Or just a Thom Browne stalker. Maybe all of the above. Either way, I can't seem to get enough of all things TB. Noted, I've been a fan long before our First Lady "introduced" him to America, so to speak. [Have I mentioned that I have played with most of the clothing in his Tribeca showroom? The fit is as impeccable as is the style.] I'll take the pair pictured above, please.
