Fashion's Night Off - John Thomas at Belk

Can we just say how delighted we were to come across this article in South Park Magazine about John Thomas, executive of private brands at Belk? This interesting guy came across our radar when he was on Project Runway for the Belk challenge. Come on people, admit it, it was great to see a  manly man on that show.

It introduced a level of, um, something we hadn't realized was missing, for lack of a better phrase. But I digress...

You'll find the article here and his wife Tatiana is as beautiful as he is handsome. And the house, so livable but so Garden & Gun at the same time.  And while the name of the article is "Fashion's Night Off," even in this causal setting, Thomas and his wife, along with their home, are what we think of as style-icious! (Rhymes with delicious!)

And as a former copy-writer can I ask who wrote that article title? "Fashion's Night Off."

Like "Fashion's Night Out," but better.

Not that we don't like prints, but sometimes you need something MADEWELL

At the Birmingham Fashion Blog, we love prints, we really do. They cover a multitude of sins, metaphorically speaking. But sometimes you just need normal. Chic. Smooth. Not all busy and bird of paradise-ish.

And now, you can find just those very things at Madewell, opening Tuesday, Oct. 16 at the Summit in Birmingham. But be forewarned, over size 14's will be out of luck. It's so chic, it's just for the tiny chicks.

We're ok with that. Those cute purses know no size.

Big things are happening at the Riverchase Galleria!

Just in case you haven't heard, the fashion capitol of the South is growing by leaps and bounds! The new trendy fashion store Cloochie opened today and Von Maur is slated to open in November at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, near Birmingham, AL.

We'll try and visit Cloochie soon and give you a report, but this lace skirt on their website is making my inner Stevie Nicks come to life, and that's a good thing!

And Von Maur? We've never had the occasion to visit one but we're looking forward to checking the store out. It's always exciting when you have more fashion to choose from.
