Belk #Happyhours @ Girls’ Night Out Recap

#HappyHours

Thank you to everyone that came out for last night’s Belk #HappyHours @ Girls’ Night Out event. I had an absolute blast hanging out with some of you, styling Belk customers, playing with henna, and, of course, meeting Chip & Pepper. What a whirlwind of an evening!!

I started off the night at the henna booth. These two ladies are ridiculously talented. I don’t have hands steady enough to do the work they do. Just check out my hamsa art that they did….

They also had my favorite Flash Tattoos and I went a little crazy. I think I ended up with 4 total, but my favorite by a long shot was this one they put on the top of my foot that reads, “Love Your Life.” I think it’s a great reminder to stop worrying so much about what other people have or may get to do and just really love the life that you’ve worked for and that you have.

Love Your Life

Next up was our style section where shoppers could come up, get styling advice, enter raffle prizes and just hang out with us! It was so much fun meeting some of the Belk shoppers and answering questions for them!

Before I knew it, designers Chip & Pepper had grabbed the bloggers to try on some of their fantastic denim. Y’all know I would live in denim if I could so I was all for it. What surprised me most was the color I ended up with. I’m usually a basic, dark denim wearer. However, these guys had this amazing gray color that intrigued me. Here I am with Pepper with my new gray jeans!!

The guys were evening signing the jeans that people were buying all night. Such a cool keepsake!

Theses two are seriously amazing. They are so much fun and really down to earth. They must have taken 1,000 photos with people last night and they were happy to be in every single one. I sure hope they enjoy their time in Savannah and will hopefully come back and see us all again soon!

All in all it was an honor to be one of the 4 local bloggers Belk selected for this event. I just loved meeting the other three fashion bloggers and getting to know them. You know, one of the main reasons I was inspired to start ShopMySavannah.com was seeing how well all the stores here worked together. They all create events together (Fashion Night, Fashion Week, etc.), cross promote each other and just generally support each other as opposed to competing with each other. It’s such an incredible group of local shop owners we have here and I just knew that’s what I wanted to be a part of it. I think the local blogging community can do the same thing. We’re all so different, both in our styles and blogs, and I’m looking forward to continuing to connect with these ladies and promote the great things they are doing!

Who were the other three fashion bloggers you ask?

Taylor: Lights Camera Catwalk

Julia: Glitter and Juls

Emily: The Style Hunter

Definitely stop by their sites and follow them on social media! They are all fabulous.

Thanks again to Belk for putting on this great event and for allowing me to be a part of it. It was a wonderful opportunity and I had a great time!

Happy Shopping,

Junior League of Savannah’s 67th Annual Thrift Sale and Preview Party

09/30/2014 / , , , ,

Junior League of Savannah

It’s almost time for one of the biggest thrift sales (if not THE biggest) in Savannah. This Saturday marks the Junior League of Savannah’s 67th Annual Thrift Sale and it’s one sale you seriously cannot miss. As many of you know, I am a member of the Junior League of Savannah and I absolutely love it. I’ve met friends that I’ll have forever, have worked on initiatives and projects I never could have imagined otherwise, and I know that each and every day this group of women is making a difference right here in the Savannah community. To make all these initiatives possible though, the league has to raise money too…and that’s where the Thrift Sale comes in. This event is the single largest fundraiser for the Junior League and plays a major part in the amount of money we’re able to give back to the community through projects and donations.

So, how does it work? Each year members, along with their friends, family and co-workers, donate everything from furniture and TV’s to baby clothes and holiday decorations, in order to fill the Savannah Civic Center full of thrift. Then, on Saturday morning, everyone in the community is invited to come and shop said items! There is always so much see and buy and you can bet that there’s always some hidden treasures too. Three years ago I came across a gorgeous Ethan Allen hutch for just $75! After I picked myself up off the floor from shock, I quickly put a sold tag on that baby and off it went to my house.

Now that’ I’ve sold you on going…because seriously it’s the greatest ;)…here are the details…

Junior League of Savannah Thrift Sale

When: Saturday, October 4 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Where: Savannah Civic Center (301 W. OGLETHORPE AVE, SAVANNAH, GA 31401)

Tickets: Tickets are $5 and can be purchased here.

New this year: The Thrift Sale will only be one day (Oct. 4) and this year includes women’s business, cocktail, and formal attire! (PS: I’ve already seen 2 BCBG dresses with the tags still on…just sayin’.)

Important details: The event is CASH ONLY so make sure you have cash on hand. No strollers or carts allowed.

But wait, there’s more! Each year the Junior League hosts a cocktail party (referred to as the Preview Party) the night before the event where ticket holders can shop the thrift sale early, enjoy dinner and enjoy cocktails all while participating in the Silent and Live Auction! The only catch is that to purchase thrift sale items the night before, you’ll pay double the price listed on the item. This year’s auction is going to be great too. I was just at the Civic Center checking out some of the items and I’m beyond ready to bid. We’re talking Satchel, Kate Spade, Dooney & Burke, Michael Kors, Lilly Pulitzer, and more. I could go on for days. I swear there are hundreds of items. They even have stuff for the men, including an awesome hunting trip! So, here are your Preview Party details….

Junior League of Savannah Preview Party

When: Friday, October 3 – Doors open for Thrift Shopping at 5:30 p.m.

Where: Savannah Civic Center (301 W. OGLETHORPE AVE, SAVANNAH, GA 31401)

Tickets: Tickets are $25 each (price will increase on Oct. 1) and can be purchased here

New this year: It’s a Masquerade event so don’t forget to grab your mask if you dare! Also new this year is the ability to support the event through a Patron Sponsorship. For more details, or to purchase, click here.

Important details: Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for Thrift Sale shopping with the Preview Party cocktail and auction beginning at 6 p.m.

Meet Sarah Helen Drew

09/06/2014 / , ,

Good morning, y’all! Today is a very exciting day for ShopMySavannah.com. I am so proud and excited to introduce you to my very first contributor, Sarah. When I first started ShopMySavannah.com in 2010 it was just this tiny blog hosted on blogger.com where I shared my opinion on fashion and featured the best local shops Savannah had to offer. Never in my wildest dreams did I think back then that I would end up with a full-blown website, much less a contributing writer! Like I said, today is a very exciting day. I just know that y’all are going to love Sarah as much as I do. She’s simply fabulous. So…without further ado, let’s meet Sarah….

Meet Sarah Helen Drew

Meet Sarah 2

Sarah Drew sometimes forgets she’s not Carrie Bradshaw. Having recently moved from the heart of New York City to sweet Savannah, you will find Sarah bouncing around downtown seeking out the latest trends, meeting new people in the community, reading a great book in Forsyth Park, and smiling at the cutest Chihuahuas (she left Stella, her two pound pup back in the city, wardrobe and all). If you spot Sarah with a dashing Navy Officer, that’s her husband to be. She recently said yes to the dress, of course, after saying yes to the man!

 Sarah worked for Vanity Fair Magazine back in NYC and is especially excited to spread her love of fashion, writing, and events in the South. As a contributor, Sarah will explore all the local wonders that Shop My Savannah has brought to life. Regardless of the city, Sarah will always be in a fashion frenzy! Watch out as she dodges the horse-drawn carriages rather than those crazy yellow taxi cabs.
