Touch Down: Super Bites & Top 5 Picks!

Hey there, ArtBLT’ers! Did you have a great weekend? The sis and I hope that your team won the Super Bowl. To be honest, we are not football fans–never have, probably never will be. There are some sports that we like, but football is not on the top of our list. Every year for Super Bowl we cook a meal and watch the commercials.

This year we got savvier and utilized our lovely DVR. She allowed us to fast forward through the game and watch only the commercials/half time performance. We pulled out the Chinet and enjoyed each other’s company. Can we say: SWEET! Read More

Tête-à-tête Thursdays: Prophetik Designer Jeff Garner

A stunning dress made by southern designer Jeff Garner. The dress is made of peacock feathers, a 100+ year old quit, and other materials!

Y’all will not believe who we met yesterday. A belle is on cloud nine and cannot believe we got to chat about fashion, life, the environment, and health for over an hour with one of the most unique designers of our time: Jeff Garner.

Having designed clothes/costumes for over 2,500 women and some men, inclusive of Taylor Swift, The Jonas Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, and Kate Middleton, Garner is a very unique sustainable fashion designer. An avid surfer, Garner sustains himself on berries and 3-4 hours of sleep! He told a belle that he is far more productive with less sleep.

What’s so unique about him you ask? Well, Garner’s designs are organic and he doesn’t use traditional harsh dyes on his clothes. His dyes are made at a community garden in Nashville, Tennessee. With Birmingham Fashion Week (BFW) 2012 on our heels we can’t wait to share his talent with you!

Fierce, right! Garner's face lit up when I showed him a picture of this gown!

My Heart is Swoonalicious!

The bottom of the cutest tote EVER!

It’s Hump Day friends. I hope that you all are having a great week thus far. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am to be back on the scene. I had surgery and aside from sounding like a scarecrow for over a week, a belle is starting to feel much better. Y’all know that the sis and I have what we like to call: “The Shopping Problem” so we had to celebrate my feeling better.

After dinner with the fam on Sunday we went into one of our top 5 fav stores, Brighton, and had a field day. A belle couldn’t believe the wonderful sale they were having. It only comes twice a year! If you adore flowers and hearts as much as I do, then you are in for a treat!! Read More
