Happy Fridayy’all! So if you follow me on social media, then you probably saw that I was in Atlanta for most of last week working the Atlanta Apparel Market. What does that mean exactly? Well, I was working in a showroom with my friend Lindsay to show the spring 2017 lines to different buyers from all over the southeast. The week was extremely busy which is why my posts have been somewhat sporadic but now that I’ve caught up with life, I thought it would be fun to share a little recap with you guys!
This top and cardigan are from the Bobeau cozy collection– the fabric is incredibly soft and these will be available for holiday.
So what was the coolest part about this? Seeing all the trends for spring when it’s just starting to get cold outside. How cool is that?! As far as a trend forecast, frayed hemlines will be huge and chambray and off-the-shoulder styles won’t be going anywhere soon.
As far as visiting Atlanta, we ate out most nights but our big group outing was to Ribalta in midtown that had some of the most amazing pizza. Another night we got sushi and Lindsay took us to a “surprise” location for dessert. We all got cake at Café Intermezzo and on top of being the cutest little restaurant, the cake was out of this world. I got the tres leeches (their best seller) and I’m still dreaming about it. Worth every calorie!
Love The Mart! I was suppose to attend this event too but was unable to make it. Looks like you had a great time!
Have a great weekend!

Oh my goodness, this so sooo cool and I'm totally jealous!! So much fun you got to help out and try on different clothes for people. I'm always so fascinated as to how the mart works and with people buying collections and whatnot. I guess you have to be a retailer or purchaser to get in?
How incredible to see this in person and get to participate. It looks amazing!!

I used to work at a boutique and the part I miss the most is going to the buyer's shows! I love the layout of this one. The Merchandise Mart in Chicago doesn't have an open atrium like this one does. It's interesting to hear your side of it from the seller's perspective. Such a fun experience! BTW, I love your bag in the group picture! Is that a Vera?
