Look what we found on Instagram:
While downtown Memphis was crawling with the undead for the Sixth Annual Memphis Zombie Massacre last Friday, we found some lively style-ites milling about South Main for the May Trolley Tour.
Have you waited your whole life for a chance to be featured in the Flyer's Fall Fashion spread? You have? Well, then take the elevator to the Peabody Rooftop Party tomorrow at 6 p.m., and show us why you think you should model for us!
Flyer Reader: "Did you see that hottie in the Flyer's Fall Fashion spread? I'd like to befriend him/hire him/date him/buy him a snow cone."
See how this works?
If you can't make it to tomorrow's party, don't fret! In addition to the May 24th Peabody Rooftop Party, we will be searching for models at the June 21st, July 19th, and August 16th parties.
So get your darling faces out there and be discovered.
My lovely co-worker Bianca — who, you'll remember, introduced me to magnetic nail polish — led the charge last week for our company's participation in Bike-to-Work Day. (We won third place! We got a plaque! Read all about it here!)
While this was certainly a feather in our company cap, nothing could eclipse Bianca's joy when she received her New Kids On The Block bike basket liner bag from Salvaged Stitch on Etsy. Having just procured a wire basket for her adorable mint green cruiser, Bianca was thrilled to find a liner bag with handles for easy transport and a theme her 10-year-old self would be proud to peddle around.
And now, here's my favorite anecdote about Bianca and NKOTB: In the fourth grade, she gave a copy of NKOTB's "Please Don't Go Girl" (on cassette tape, of course) to her best friend who was moving away.
She's got a cool bike basket liner and a heart of gold, this one.
I feel good about two things today: One, James Brown is alive and well on a Madison Avenue sidewalk.
What first caught my attention was the casual but professional mix of a blue jean shirt and a black pencil skirt, paired with nude patent flats (from Payless!)
So far, it's been a service targeted at women. Women who, like me, delight in all the little sample bottles and enjoy a child-like sense of glee at opening a surprise package every month.
But dudes like surprises, too! And now they can join in the fun: Birchbox Man is here and it caters to the manicured man you've always wished you could be.
For those of you unfamiliar with Birchbox, here's a little peek at what I received in my April box. It had an Earth Week theme, and most of the products were natural and/or organic.
Of course, the man's version would look a little different (and for some reason costs $20 a month instead of $10?) Essentially, you'll get "grooming" products instead of beauty products, but the other services, like rewards points and tips on how to use your Birchbox samples will be the same. Go get your groom on.
On our way to get a morning coffee fix, we ran into Heather from The American Institute of Architects in Memphis. She looked too adorable for us not to stop and ask about her outfit.
