Kate Spade Charlottesville Opening | The Pursuit of Style

I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting to share this invitation with you! Next week, September 5th, I’ll be in Charlottesville, VA hosting an event with kate spade new york and InStyle. This is a pinch me moment for sure, so I hope you’ll join me for sips, snacks, and some shopping (with 20% off!) I’d really love to meet you, so if you can make it please RSVP to by Wednesday, September 4th.

P.S I’m planning to drive up early so if you have any recommendations for things I can’t miss while in the Charlottesville area I’d love to hear them.



If the boyfriend and I weren’t celebrating our anniversary this weekend I’d be on the next Amtrak train to NYC right about now. Why you ask? To wait in line for the D. Porthault White Sale!! If you’re anywhere in the vicinity of NYC you must go and report back. I want to see pictures and hear details! Of course, if you’re feeling generous you can pick me up a little something too!

Here’s the info:

When: January 17th-February 15th

Where: 470 Park Avenue (on 58th Street) New York, NY

Details: Discounts between 40-80%!!


One of my New Year’s resolutions is to put my passport to good use and travel. I enjoyed visiting new cities all over the US this year, but in 2011 I’m craving something more adventurous. These stunning photos of the Uttarayan Kite Festival in India remind me why I love traveling so much. There’s just so much inspiration to be found in the culture and tradition of new places. The Kite Festival takes place on January 14th so if you’re feeling spontaneous you still have time to pack a bag and jet off. Be sure to report back!


Recently I had the exclusive opportunity to interview three of my very favorite bloggers Katie, Jane, and Fallon, who have teamed up to create what is sure to be an amazing publication, Matchbook Magazine. I’ve been anxiously awaiting its launch so you can imagine my excitement to be able to chat with these three talented ladies! They’re all sweet as can be, and I’m sure you’ll feel like you’ve just gotten off the phone with your closest girlfriends after listening in. Plus, you know you’re curious to hear your favorite bloggers’ voices (I know I always have been!) So, without further adieu, I hope you’ll join me in learning a bit more about Matchbook and the fabulous ladies behind it!
