As we headed up I-65, my friend Sarah & I could feel ourselves unwinding from the crazy week that we had just escaped from…luckily our knowledge that Nashville was on the horizon put us at ease…And so the weekend began!!
A little food, a few honky tonks, some great friends and A LOT of shopping made our first trip to Nashville unbelievable!
Once we got in town we immediately headed for a delicious ‘global cuisine meets the south’ meal at the posh Boundry. After sharing the BEST pizza I’ve ever had with my friends (the lobster BLT pizza is a must, trust me!), I indulged in the scallop special, tres magnifique!
Ok, ok on to my favorite part of the weekend…the shopping!! (Side note: click on pictures to make them bigger & more beautiful!)
I have to say my favorite shop & my most successful shopping experience was…Venus & Mars Vintage. The precious house was full of wondrous treasures from vintage dresses to reworked vintage jewelry. To make my experience there complete they were hosting a Alice in Wonderland tea party upstairs, OMG can I pleeeeeasssseeee move in?! Thanks.
Next on our shopping adventure we hit up Savant Vintage Couture. Inside was a fabulous mix of vintage light fixtures, furniture, shoes, colorful slips and even a luxurious fur selection! I could have literally tried on everything in the store!
A gorgeous & colorful array of vintage slips…
My fabulous crafty friend Hallie lovin’ her a creamy leather vintage coat! My guess is she’s still having dreams about this find!
Where to begin about this jewel of a boutique….basically Imogene & Willie is to.die.for.
The store located in an old gas station is owned by Matt & Carrie Eddmenson who have work experience with some of the best denim companies in the world..J Brand, Diesel, Levis and more! Needless to say this is why they opened their very own concept boutique that also houses a custom made denim bar if you will. It is one of the most homey & delightfully southern boutiques I have ever experienced. And the customer service (that includes their adorable yellow lab!) is impeccable, making you want to lounge about the store with your new friends.
A travel blog post would not be complete without a little photo shoot of my favorite purchases…
Colorful vintage dress from Venus and Mars with a tulip skirt and embellished waistband. Worn with my new Maison Martin Margiela nude sandals….love them both!!!

Au revoir Nashvegas, hope to visit you again soon!!
