Had the honor of co-hosting #HudsonWasHere denim event at Saks Atlanta with Hudson Founder & CEO, Peter Kim. Proud to also be joined by Celebrity Stylist, Renaldo Nehemiah & Elly Karamoh of Heidioki Bespoke. Two fellow Lifestyle Influencers that I respect dearly.

The event played host to about 75-100 guests with music and cocktails by I.W. Harper & Ciroc. The hit cocktail of the evening was the Bourbon Bonfire – here’s the delicious mix:

  • I.W Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
  • Apple Tart Shrub
  • Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Vanilla Syrup
  • Black Walnut Bitters

This has been one of my favorites the entire fall/winter season. Once you have 1, you’ll surely want another. Don’t take my word for it, just try it for yourself. This is the first cocktail I’ve had with Black Walnut Bitters and have since made it a permanent fixture on my home bar. I’m learning to appreciate the details of my drinks more and more. It’s amazing how a couple dashes of bitters go  a long way to enhance the finish.

Hudson has always been a leader in the denim market because they’re one brand that consistently brings fresh looks and stays ahead of the fashion curve. Also, a true testament to their brand is the craftsmanship and wearability. The denim wears well for years and even in the slimmer fits they have a stretch that flows naturally with your body. To me, comfort in denim is even more important than the look. If you’re perusing their collection at Saks, depending on your body type, be sure to search and try the Sartor Slouch Skinny fit. There are also other great fits based on your desired look.

A special shoutout to Saks Atlanta Marketing Manager, Camille Binder and the entire Hudson team for the opportunity and hospitality. The photos from this event are from the ever-so-talented Kayla Madonna, whose work you can find featured on a lot of my previous blog posts and Instagram favorites.

Look forward to sharing more fashion and lifestyle events with you to close out 2017, including a charity ball this Saturday with Guestlist ATL and an epic NYE Bash for the ages!

Cheers,
