Decatur Wine Festival

It’s hard to believe with the deep freeze we are experiencing now that just last weekend I was sipping wine at the Decatur Wine Festival.  It was a sunny, crisp autumn day that was perfect for a wine tasting.  Well, actually anytime is a perfect time for wine tasting, but I digress…..It’s an annual event that I try to attend every year.  Last year I procrastinated in buying my ticket and it sold out!!!  I vowed that would never happen again so I purchased my ticket well ahead of time to ensure I would be able to enjoy this highly popular festival.

It was warm enough to wear this great shirt dress I got at an Alternative Apparel warehouse sale for only $15!!!  I paired it with some cognac-colored boots for comfortable walking and a pop of color cobalt blue bag.

It was packed with happy wine lovers.  You knew people were starting to feel their wine when they began dancing to the music.

Some of the lines were a little long for the complimentary food items but it’s not as bad as long as you have wine while you wait.  There was food from great restaurants like Souper Jenny, Parker’s on Ponce, Iberian Pig, and more!

Fall Trend: Crocodile Handbags

If there’s one ‘it’ bag you need for this fall season, it’s a crocodile handbag.  I know it can set a fashionista back several thousand dollars but there are many faux croc options available that are just as beautiful.  When I think of a crocodile handbag, it instantly brings thoughts of luxury and sophistication like the iconic Hermes Birkin bag.  I personally love a classsic top handle satchel bag, but designers have created some amazing crocodile handbags in all kinds of styles.  You will no longer be limited to brown and black with this closet staple.  Tory Burch has a beautiful cobalt blue tote as well as a juicy red choice by YSL.  If you really want to be funky, try a two-tone bag like the Dolce Gabbana pictured below.  Either way, you can’t go wrong with purchasing this timeless classic which will continue to be relevant for many seasons to come.
