The 21st Year


Strawberry cake, a birthday party with family, red roses, gifts from Charleston, a visit from TJ, coffee with a lifelong friend, Chez Fon Fon for dinner, and a brand new Addison Story dress: all of those things were part of the day that rang in my 21st year!

Local Eats and Outdoor Waits

I know I am about to have a good time if it involves a night out with this fine lady at Chez Fon Fon, and last week was no exception! Our hour long wait paled in comparison to the decadent meal of fresh ingredients and one of my favorite desserts in town: chocolate caramel-nut tart. Frank Stitt is a genius. Oh yeah, and the conversation wasn’t too bad either… We stayed at our table for hours and I’m sure that the waiter (and the people waiting) wanted to kick us out long before we said our final adieus.

I also love how they often play James Brown remixes at Chez…

I heart Birmingham. And summer. Which I think I’ve made pretty obvious by now. Well, I’m off to Nashville for the weekend to celebrate TJ’s birthday and attend a wedding!

Anna in The Magic City!


Taking a break from Cairo….Here are some photos from my time with Anna the other day! Miss Bodenhammer is a talented photographer, a super kind individual, and loves her some Urban Outfitters! Our time together was phenomenal-it consisted of lunching at Chez Lu Lu, rummaging through her closet full of the cutest dresses ever, choosing from my many lip colors, and zooming from store front to store front. Enjoy!







Anna, you rock. Thank you classic Birmingham store fronts (Highlands Bar & Grill, Renaissance Records, Reed Books, and Zoe’s Consignment & Vintage) for letting us use your facades! Everyone should visit ALL of those places.

P.s. I could listen to this song over and over (Basic Space Pariah Remix, by the XX) and it is the most adorable video, but the saddest French film!! I love watching her dance around.
P.s.s. Guess what? I am going to Florence for a few days to provide some extra hands during a week long shoot…for Billy Reid’s Spring 11 collection!
