Shop Local Social UPDATE!

Happy Friday to all!

We've ordered some really fun decorations for our SHOP LOCAL SOCIAL photo booth and they have started coming in!! We are going with a "browns, creams, and coraly oranges with a shot of turquoise" color theme!.  We are in LOVE with these tissue pom poms from our new favorite etsy shop

We are also pretty excited about the props we ordered from The Paper Stache... This picture will give you an idea of what you'll have to choose from while cheezing in front of the camera!

Ladies, did we mention that our photographer, Byron Wilkes, recently won the award for "Best Arm Candy" at the Jackson Free Press Chick Ball?  We can't wait to meet him... We hear he is pretty awesome!

To our VIP's:  Get excited! The swag bags are filling right up! We add something new to them pretty much every day! :)  As of this very moment, we have ten VIP spots left to fill.  We will find our last ten lucky winners next week.  If YOU want to be a VIP and your name is not already on the list, all you have to do is keep a really close watch on our Facebook page.  When we post a status update to the effect of, "Be one of the next three people to comment on this post and you'll get a spot on our VIP list!," then you comment at that time, on that post, and you're golden!

We look forward to seeing ALL of you at the party! With your friends. In your party gear. Ready to go!

See you on Thursday, 4/28 from 5:00 to 8:30!! Can't wait!

Around Jackson: Blithe and Vine

We wanted to share with you one of our favorite hot spots in Jackson!  Right now--well, always, really!-- we are loving Blithe and Vine!  Blithe and Vine is a new women's clothing store in Fondren Corner, right in the heart of Jackson.  It is a beautifully decorated store (good job, Lisa!) that is definitely worth a trip!  Not only is this a women's store, it is also a children's store! CosmoTots, which has been around for some time, is in the same space as Blithe and Vine.  The kids' clothes are so cute, you'll find yourself saying, "Do they make this for adults?!"

Liz Spratlin and Missy Massey (they are actually cousins!) bought CosmoTots in 2009 when it was just a small corner space in Fondren Corner.  Look how far they have come in just two years!! They ended up with about half of the old Max Furniture space after they went out of business and compltely gutted it.  They enlisted Lisa to steer them in designing the new space.  In a matter of just a few short months, walls were ripped out, the space was drawn out, things were on order (furniture, fixtures, AND clothes!) and the store was named.  It was quite a whirlwind!   Today, it is a beautiful space with two REALLY cute and fun girls keeping it running!

Be sure to make plans to attend Blithe and Vine's upcoming Spring Style Event on March 9!  They will have former Lucky Magazine editor Kristie Ramirez there talking about upcoming trends and her take on the fashion industry.  This is definitely something you do not want to miss! We will be there! :)

Be sure to visit Blithe and Vine's beautiful new website and mark your calendars for this fabulous event!  And tell Liz and Missy we said hi!
