Blog Nashville

The other night I had the great honor of attending a Blog Nashville meet-up event!
Blog Nashville was started by Jess & Jess who are two of the sweetest ladies around.
They hosted a fun night of vintage shopping & drinks at Pure Vida vintage in Nashville.
I took a few quick snaps of the shop that night, so many great vintage finds to be had. 
I may have snagged myself a piece or two :)

1950's Red Ball Gown - I wish I could have had a reason to buy this! 
I definitely would have been "all dressed up & no place to go".

Vintage buttons turned into hair pins

Regretting not buying these! The most adorable riding boots.

Vintage dresses for days

...and of course there was shoes

 Here are a few of the beautiful ladies I got to meet that night. They represent some of the fabulous fashion blogs Nashville has to offer. Not only that but they are also kind, welcoming ladies. Coming from someone who is fresh off the boat & new to Nashville, it was so nice to meet some locals who I can now call friends. Make sure you stop by their bogs & see all they have to offer!

Gearing Up For The 4th

4th of July is next week!
 I love celebrating the 4th, its a day where you get to show national pride &
 the bigger & brighter you are about it, the better. Here is some outfit ideas for
 the 4th to get your creative juices flowing.



Glitter, Glitter Everywhere

If there is one thing you can say about me it is that I love some good glitter! But I am always faced with one very important question... How to incorporate glitter into my daily life without looking like a 12 year old!?! Thankfully I have been introduced to make-up glue. BA STAR has this magic glue that makes glitter stick & goes on super easy & thin but washes off easily. I love it because it allows me to apply it as a thin line above my eyelashes so that I create a glitter eyeliner of sorts.
BA Star has heaps of different glitter options & they are being so kind to give Scuttle readers 50% off of their great products right now! Check out bastar.com & snatch you up some great eye shadow deals using the code below:

I am not a tee girl but this is a tee worth wearing!
This is a Johnny Cupcakes shirt that I actually scooped up at the Buffalo
Exchange store in Atlanta. Definitely one of the best thrift finds! 
This tee has lead me to the Johnny Cupcakes site one to many times
 causing me to dream & drool over all of the other cupcake options! 
This tee & this tank are definitely on my love list!

Don't Judge A Blouse...



 This is the last of my GA photo repertoire! I took this the day before we moved in hopes of posting but the day just got away from me. So here is my last salute to good old GA (until I go back next month for vaca of course :). I bought this shirt because a friend persuaded me to but I wasn't very convinced that it would get much wear because I don't ever wear orange (this is the only piece of orange clothing I own). But let me tell you, I was wrong! I have worn this atleast once a week. It is super comfy & it dresses up or down nicely. So it is fair to say don't judge a blouse by its cover... you know what I mean!

A few things need to be organized & pictures need to be hung, but for the most part we are settled. Now onto the hunt of finding the rights shops, eats & Nashville friends!

Your regularly scheduled Scuttle posts are now back up & running!

Box After Box After Box

Excuse me for being a bit MIA. I am in the midst of moving. Tomorrow morning I will say good bye to good old ATL and head off to Nashville! I am very excited but ready for the boxes to be gone. I just wish they could unpack & organize themselves. Makes me wish magic was real right now!
