Donna is a lover of pin-up and what better home for her addiction than CBville! Doesn’t hurt her hubby is a photog, who took some awesome shots of her that you can see below! Read more… ;)
Age: 41 (shh don’t tell!)
Occupation: Office Manager at the UofM Athletics Development Office
How long have you been shopping at CrazyBeautiful: about a year
Why do you love shopping at CB: the selection of clothing is very eclectic …kinda like me!
Describe your personal style in 3 words: retro, vintage, unique
Recent purchase from CB you can’t live without: Motel leopard print pencil skirt
Current favorite trend: 40’s & 50’s vintage & pin up
Must-have songs you listen to when getting ready to go out: I like so many different styles of music that I am likely to be listening to ANYTHING. My current playlist includes tunes from popular artists like Adele, Evanescence, and Within Temptation to more obscure stuff from Tarja and Poe. But you can usually bet at some point I am going to end up listening to Lies of the Beautiful People by Sixx A.M.
Favorite place to people watch: I love watching people at the FedExForum during the Memphis Tiger Games because you are guaranteed to see the Who’s Who of Memphis in attendance.
Best place for a date night: My husband and I like to go to the Hi-Tone to watch some good old fashioned burlesque. We also enjoy listening to live music at The Spot in Hernando, MS or the Fill’n Station in Southaven. At the moment we really like the new Memphis band Unkle Daddy.
Best place to go with your girlfriends: We usually end up a Swanky’s or Chili’s because we can have food & a few drinks without having to go to a bar.
Best brunch spot: Fratelli’s in the Garden (at Memphis Botanic Gardens) they offer a different kind of menu and what girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by art & flowers! I ALWAYS order the “Ile de France”, a sandwich made with Turkey, Brie & Pear slices.
One must-see place in your current town (& WHY): The Memphis Zoo – one of the things Memphis has definitely done right. I can take just about anybody with me and have a great time. They also hosts a lot of unique after-hours events. Besides who doesn’t like the zoo?
Here are some fab pics she submitted that were taken by her hubby!
We look forward to playing dress-up Donna!!! See you soon ;)
This past weekend on the 25th, we held our first Local Love Sunday! The in-store event will be on the last Sunday of every month and feature a different local artist each time.
For our first round of local love, we featured our dear friend Ashley. Creative mind behind Hustle & Sew, Ashley is a crocheting fiend! From cupcakes, to rings, to purses and even ‘brass’ knuckles, Hustle & Sew is a growing brand that will continue to explore mediums and produce adorable items.
Our shoppers loved the gifts she had to offer! (& we may have picked up one or two things for ourselves ;] )
We had too much fun (as always) playing dress-up with all our customers!
Heather & Chelsea Bugg of LadyBugg Bakery in Hernando, MS are suckers for pin-up! Here they are modeling new HELL BUNNY dresses! We love supporting other local business women, but they do make it easy by spoiling us with treats ;) Pictured above are the Olivie Dress in Mint on Heather, and the Rocket Zombie Mini on Chelsea.
Who says fashion & cupcakes don’t go together?! YUM!!
The worst part of playing dress-up: decision time. Mother-daughter duo Tess and Esther had quite the afternoon with mimosas and dresses…
Kat, one of our long-time CB loyals, has been another victim of the awesome-ness that is HELL BUNNY!! Pictured on left is the Mexico 50’s and on the right the Olivie makes another appearance with the Smooches wedge!
Sadie J. Byrd of The Memphis Belles also swung through, looking ever so lovely in Trashy Diva!
Here’s 3/5 of the CB gang showing their love for Hustle & Sew
L-R: Addison, Ashley (H&S), Taylor & Eryka
See you next month, ladies!!
Hello ladies! Eryka here <3 It’s hard to believe that it’s already that time of the year again: VALENTINE’S DAY! You either love the holiday or you hate it, but regardless of your particular status this year, whether in a relationship or single, it’s a day to get dolled up and hit the town! Use it as an excuse to finally cut the tags off of that dress you’ve been saving for a “special occasion” and just do it! Whether your signifant other is pampering you or you’re treating yourself to a day of self-indulgence, open that box of chocolates, pop that bottle of Sofia, get yourself a new shade of red lipstick and have yourself a truly amazing day!
CrazyBeautiful is proud to annouce our most recent collaboration with the talented Amanda Hill of AM Photography. All of the pictures posted in this blog were taken from our Valentine’s day photoshoot with our lovely model, Miss Sadie J. Byrd of the Memphis Belles. Isn’t she just a doll!
