It’s Back: Midtown Pop-Up

1 Dec

If you’re looking for ways to shop local/indie this season (and if you aren’t–why not?), check out the Midtown Pop-Up, returning this weekend to the Midtown Mile. Stop by on Thursday after work (5pm to 9pm) to shop the Clothing Warehouse, Drew Lewis’ new private label menswear, En Paris gifts and Revolution 11 vintage apparel. Then come back on Friday and Saturday for more from Olive, Pieces of Me, Lisa Jill, Kristi Hyde and Junebug, plus Sinless cocktails and Rockin’ Cupcakes. Not only will you get your holiday shopping out of the way early this year, but you’ll be able to bask in the (smug) satisfaction of knowing that you helped a small business.

Midtown Pop-Up. 999 Peachtree Street. Dec 1-3.


Start A New Tradition: Taste of the 4th

30 Jun

You can’t watch the legendary Lenox Square fireworks on an empty stomach. This year, we have an easy solution, and motivation to get down there even earlier to claim a good spot. Ford presents Taste of the 4th in the Main Stage lot from 2pm to 6pm, featuring bites and sips from some legendary Atlanta restaurants (Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, Morelli’s Ice Cream, California Pizza Kitchen, The Palm, Red Brick Brewery and more). Tickets are $10 each (best price for food in Buckhead ever), and proceeds benefit the Atlanta Mission. Plus, you get first dibs on prime seats to the big event.

Taste of the 4th. Monday, July 4th from 2pm to 6pm at Lenox Square. Tickets available at Ticketmaster.

What’s In Store: Diane von Fustenberg Home

10 Mar

Diane von Furstenberg started conquering women’s closets in the 70’s with her iconic wrap dress–now she’s tackling the rest of your house with her new bedding and dining goods. The wide variety of duvet covers and sheets range from colorful patterns to feminine florals and butterflies to subdued neutrals. Her dinnerware is similar–there are bold, asymmetrical shaped plates as well as simple mango wood pieces with gold leaf flourishes.

Prices for bedding are more similar to what you’d pay for one of her dresses, but the dinnerware is more affordable. The mix of neutral pieces with colorful ones means that you can probably find something worth investing in no matter what your taste may be. What more could you expect from a woman who has been in the fashion industry long enough to see bellbottoms come back in style three times?

Diane von Furstenberg Home. Available at Bloomingdale’s and online.
