02/09/2014 / Savannah Boutique Warehouse Sale, Shop Local, Shop My Savannah
UPDATE: Can you believe it’s already sale time? This Saturday is the much anticipated Savannah Boutique Warehouse Sale. If you’ve been checking their Facebook Page then you know what amazing deals these stores are bringing. So many incredible designer names all at 50-90% off! Below is the most up to date list of stores for your reference.
Hope to see everyone Saturday! I’ll be there bright and early!
It’s back!! Around this time last year the most magical thing happened. Several Savannah boutiques got together and decided to have a boutique warehouse sale! They decided they would bring their sale racks + newer items and mark everything down 50-90% for one day only! While some, aka me, might call it the “greatest day ever”, it truly became known as the Savannah Boutique Warehouse Sale.
Obviously something this awesome can’t just be held once and luckily the store owners agreed. So, go ahead and save this date: Saturday, February 22nd, 2014, and you can thank me later!
To stay in the loop, make sure to like their page on Facebook, here, and stay tuned to the site. I’ll be updating this post with participating retailers and other sneak peaks throughout the next few weeks!
Happy Shopping – J
01/29/2014 / BleuBelle Boutique, dejaBLEU, Event, Sale, Sale Alerts, Savannah Events
Happy Thursday y’all! I’m sure any of you that have been to the dejaBLEU designer consignment sale in the past need no introduction to how awesome of an event it is. Well, this year it’s back again and even better than before. Trust me. I’ve seen some of the stuff coming through.
For those of you not familiar with the event I’ll break it down for you. This event gives you the opportunity to sell your designer brand items and make some money AND you get to shop the fabulous designer brands brought in by others! So basically I get to make money to spend money. Story of my life, I tell ya! Haha.
Here’s how it works…you have 2 different options to sell you clothes:
1. You can make 60% by pricing your own items using their site registration system here.
2. If you don’t want to price your items, you can go ahead and just drop off unmarked items and you’ll receive 50% off the item.
Both options will grant you free access to shop the sales first at the preview party on February 6th from 6pm-9pm.
All items, priced or unpriced, MUST be delivered to BleuBelle Boutique between January 21st and February 1st. You still have a few days to get those items in and participate!
Don’t have any items you want to part with but still want to shop? For a $5 donation, benefiting the Savannah Arts Academy, you can join us at the Preview Party event! Then, the sale opens up to the public Friday and Saturday from 10am – 6pm and Sunday Noon – 5pm. They will also be having an extra 50% off sale on Sunday for those of you that are daring enough to wait to see if your favorite item is still there!
So, where is this sale at you might be asking? It will be at 706 Mall Blvd., Savannah GA 31406 (map below).

Hope to see lots of y’all there!!
01/07/2014 / Custard Boutique, Shop Local, Shop My Savannah, Trending This Tuesday, What I Bought
I’ve never really been great at wearing skirts. Especially in the winter. It always seems harder to put an outfit together with a skirt than anything else. Add in the aspect of it being freezing outside and I just can’t do it. Well, it’s 2014 and, although I’m not big on making a list of resolutions, I am deciding to broaden my horizons for the sake of entertaining you all! So, today I bring you- My Winter Skirt!
I had been eyeing this skirt from Custard for about 2 months. However, due to my lack of skirt wearing and fear of looking like an idiot wearing a skirt in the winter I never bought it. I think I tried it on 4 or 5 times though. In fact, I’m pretty sure I tried it on every time I walked into Custard. Well, while I was out spending some of my birthday/Christmas money I decided to try it on…AGAIN! But this time, I bought it!! I decided it was about time I rocked a skirt and this was going to be the one. Not to mention it was mostly black and I knew there just had to be something in my closet that matched. Plus, it fell into my “broaden my fashion resolution” so I really had no choice!
So what constitutes a “winter” skirt. Well, to me there are a few things that make a skirt more wintery to me…
1. It’s thicker. Instead of a linen or light cotton it has some substance to it and made with a fabric like a tweed.
2. Darker colors. When I see brighter colored skirts I think of spring…not winter.
3. Length. Longer length skirts make me think winter. I mean, if you can rock your mini-skirt with tights go for it but it always just looks so silly to me. Haha.
So far I’ve put together two outfits with the skirt.
The first is paired with a black turtleneck, my favorite long, gold necklace from Stella & Dot stylist Jessica Thomas, and my fab Kate Spade hat that I wear way too much!
The second is paired with a baggier black top, a shorter gold necklace from Kate Spade and no hat. I know. I know. It’s not all that much different but the top makes this a little more casual to me than the turtle neck.
With both of these outfits you could most certainly add tights and then go with boots or pumps.
I would really like to find a dark brown top and/or a tan top as well since this skirt is really a great combination of black/brown/tan.
I can’t wait to rock these two outfits I put together. Question: Which one is your favorite? #1 or #2? Comment below and whichever one wins out I’ll wear first!

I love fall trends. And by love and I mean LOVE!! For some reason I just really enjoy getting ready in this season. Maybe it’s the ability to wear a scarf on a daily basis instead of having to figure out which necklace looks best or the fact that I can wear jeans and not sweat to death. No matter what the reasoning though, this is definitely my favorite time of year. This fall I’m starting a new weekly blog post called “Trending Tuesday” where I’ll share my favorite trends for the season along with where you can find them locally!
First up – Leather. Both faux and real, little bits of leather are sneaking their way into every day pieces. I just love the items I was able to find at stores in Savannah. Dresses, jackets, skirts, etc. Savannah had it all. Up until now, I have never really bought any leather clothing but I’m definitely excited to purchase some this season. I’ll keep you posted on which of these items I get!
And what would a post about where to find fabulous leather pieces be without a photo of my favorite leather accessory store, Satchel?!
