Hud Luxe-going out of business

Hey local Nashvillians,

Check out this email I got from Hud Luxe. You should be able to get some ridiculous deals at this upscale boutique in Green Hills. I've gotten several pair of jeans from them, and their selection rocks (men and women). Let me know if anyone gets deals there!

Dear Loyal Customers,
We are sad to say that September 30th will be our last day of business; Everything in the store must go!!! Fixtures, Display Cases, and Clothing! Please come in and check out the insane deals we are offering! Thank you again for 3 years of Business.
Sincerly Hud Hudson and staff

Calling all Fashionistas

Alright ya'll...I need your help! That's right, Holly is asking for fashion advice. This Wednesday, I am heading to the Ryder Cup with my hubby. For those of you who don't have the privilege of sitting through countless hours of golf like I do, the Ryder Cup is an international golf tourney between the US and Europe. It's the best players from US and Europe playing against each other as teams. Fun, right? Anyway, they alternate having it in the US and Europe. Well guess what? It's in Louisville, KY this year which is only 2 hours away. Tadd's been planning for us to go to this since they announced it's location. He's so excited!

Anyway, what do I wear? Tadd says whatever clothes I wear, I need to wear my tennis shoes...what? NO way! They are ugly. As Jill told me, it's OK to can fashion when exercising. They must be functional! So I got ugly functional exercise shoes, and I'm NOT wearing them to an event where I will be seeing famous people! Even though Tiger Woods and Adam Scott won't be there, I still must look my best. OK, and I guess I need to be comfy. Lot's of walking, and probably hot. So what to wear people?

Any of you who have been to a PGA event, please tell me what to wear!

Eye Opener

I have always known that I don't know how to decorate my house. I know if I see something I like. But I have no idea how to put stuff together, how to hang things on the wall properly, or how to decorate my bookshelf.

Tadd has been trying to get me to hire a decorator, but we haven't had the money to put into it. About a year ago, Tadd's sister moved here, and I've always loved how her house looked. Not that we necessarily have the same taste, but I always admired how everything looks so put together. So I asked her to come help me with my dining room.

She came over last Sunday, and we've kind of been working on it a few days this week. Last night we went to Pier One and bought a few things...not much at all, and worked on my mantle above my fireplace. Ya'll I can't stop looking at it. It is so pretty. And the funny thing is, after I painted my dining room when we moved in this house, I only liked it for about a month. It is yellow, and I just thought it was too bright. What I learned after working with Kelley, is that I don't hate the color...I hated the rest of the colors I was putting with it! Alpha Gams, picture Amy Ingall's red, buff and green AGD know the TV room? That's how my dining room looked, and I hated it.

Now, we still have yellow walls, but the rest of the color palette is browns, and lighter greens. It is warm and yummy! I've walked through there like 50 times today on purpose so I could look at it ;)

I guess the point of all of this is that just because you can dress your body, doesn't mean you can dress your house (and vice versa). Dressing me comes naturally to me, and dressing my walls comes easily to my sis-in-law...thanks Kelley for sharing your God give gift with me!

P.S. I thought about posting a picture, but you wouldn't get as excited as me since you didn't see it before...should've taken before and after pics. I guess I didn't know how bad off I was until we redecorated. Probably what my clients think about their wardrobes before I get a hold of them!

NY Fashion Week

Well girls, NY Fashion Week kicked off on Friday at Bryant sweet day, I'll be there! In the meantime, I'll be looking at designers runway collections, online, and in magazines so I can bring you all of the Fall must haves. I've already seen some cool trends that I can't wait to try (if my pregnant belly will allow it!). But I'll wait until I have my finalized list of favs before I post about it.

oops, here are the pics...

My this short-sleeved suit with the puff sleeve
Great color choice
Really cute tie belt
Modern, yet classy and sophisticated
The infamous "$300,000" outfit...which I read about. This dress was actually $3,800 and her earrings were $340,000. Which were probably borrowed. But if not who cares...she is a self made millionaire, and has seven kids. You spend whatever you want Cindy. You are fabulous!
(Don't you love how I wrote this like she reads my blog...ha!)

Cindy McCain

I'm not here to get into a political debate...I simply want to say what I think about the fashion at the RNC. Cindy McCain has got it going on! Not just at this convention, but everywhere she goes. She takes the average "suit" and takes it to the next level. She is not afraid of color, and she knows what looks good on her. Here are a couple of pictures so you can see for yourself if you haven't been watching on TV. I saw something on the homepage of Comcast that she was wearing a $300,000 outfit...which I think is a load of bull. But if isn't...who cares. At least she spent the money on something that looks good on her! If nothing else, she would make a very pretty First Lady.
