31 bottles for 31 years.

•••
Last year we did 30 bottles for 30, so this year it was 31 bottles for 31 years. They say you're only supposed to celebrate milestone birthdays really BiG, but I look at each year of life and progression as a milestone. Why celebrate the next year with less excitement than the year before?! I never understood this concept. My birthday brunch was loosely b[...]

Black Label Brunch

•••
I've had this Ralph Lauren Black Label Corduroy shirt for a few years and never got around to wearing it. With the unseasonably mild weather we've been getting all winter in Atlanta, it has finally dropped to make it cold enough to rock it. Heavier weights, textures and vibes abound. Never been a huge fan of the color blue, but have grown to respect the v[...]

Statement Scarf

•••
In the colder months, a statement scarf can take a look from dull to dapper, by adding colors or patterns to make it stand out. The best thing to remember is to not spend too much time with them. Throwing it on should be as effortless as your personal style is. In today's post I'll highlight ways to wear a scarf based on the occasion (or for absolutel[...]

Fly for Fall

•••
To me, Fly for Fall means to be confident in your look regardless of the weather, season or time of year. We all have a way we express our individuality through style... A lot of it comes from where we're going and where we came from. Growing up in Maryland (DMV), with most of my extended family living between there and New York, we grew up with a few Fall s[...]

Moët Diner En Blanc Atlanta 2015

•••
After attending the inaugural Le Diner en Blanc in Miami and Atlanta last year, I was looking forward to seeing how the dinner would evolve and grow... What new touches would they add? How would they keep it interesting? Their answer was: location! I don't know how they were able to pull this off (probably with the blessing of the Mayor), but they man[...]

The Panama Hat

•••
Physically in Atlanta, mentally in Panama...  Besides just being a cool hat, the Panama Hat actually has an even cooler story. It was originally named the "Panama Hat" when president Theodore Roosevelt wore it on his first trip to the Panama Canal in the early 20th Century, somewhere around 1915. Since that time, with it's lightweight, handwoven const[...]

Growing up with Gant

•••
I was introduced to the Gant brand wayyy back in middle school when I used to scavenge through the thrift shop with my family learning how to find the best steals... I had no idea then what Gant was, but I remember my sister telling me, "it was a good brand." I thought I was so cool in middle school rockin' my second-hand striped rugby (lol). In high s[...]

Shawl Collar in the Summer

•••
I'm used to seeing shawl collars on blazers, sweaters and jackets, but never on a short-sleeved shirt. That's why when I saw this one I had to have it. Clever the way they made a Fall look wearable and cool for the summer. I'm not even a big fan of the color grey, but it's growing on me, and figured that you can't go wrong with any neutral and dis[...]

Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills

•••
Had to be there for wedding of my friend, Lance Gross, and his wife Rebecca. It was not only one of the most beautiful weddings I've attended, but also one of the best event productions I've seen at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. After the ceremony, we flowed to the courtyard where there was a custom bar with handcrafted Moscow Mule cocktails[...]

Men of Style

•••
The Atlantan Magazine hosted their annual Men of Style Issue event at John Smoltz' private estate last Thursday, complete with lite bites, Scotch by Dewars, cigars and the amazing scenery of Milton, Georgia to create a full Gentlemen's Lifestyle Experience. It was a gorgeous property, with breathtaking views of green all around and we definitely l[...]

Bottle Service Brunch

•••
The Mills Branding team has started a Bottle Service Brunch event in partnership with our good friends Veuve Clicquot and Belvedere Vodka, hosted at Yebo. The event features high-vibe, musical brunch atmosphere complete with bottle service, the best mimosas, and a South Africa-meets-Atlanta brunch menu by Chef Phillipe Haddad. This Sunday we had the pleasure[...]

STK Midtown New York Anniversary | 34th Street Style

•••
Back to New York City for the second time in the last week. This time I ventured out in the street more via buses, trains, and The Metro... Amidst the motion, before STK Midtown, I was able to capture a few images to convey the dynamic interaction and diversity of the people in the urban setting. As I settled in and the evening progressed, I joi[...]
