Summer Fashion Week I

It’s here! IT’S HERE!

Summer Fashion Week has finally arrived.

I'm so excited it makes me dance!

All week long, for your viewing pleasure, I’ll be sharing some of my pretty stinking fabulous personal fashion with you for the price of your regular admission. Can you believe that deal?

But, wait, that’s not all.

“It’s not????”

Since I know that some of you readers could give a fig about fashion, I decided to up the ante a little bit. Summer Fashion Week around A Foreign Land will also include a mini tour of CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee!!! That’s right. Not only will I be showcasing what I'm wearing, I’ll be taking you to visit a handful of sites around the Scenic City.

I'm. Not. Even. Kidding.

In an effort to make myself you fall in love with Chattanooga, this week we will be checking her out in all her summertime glory. AND as a special gift to Chattanooga readers, I’ll be keeping all most of my snarky criticisms to myself!


We’re starting our tour with this most fantastic mural at Main & Mitchell on Chattanooga’s up-and-coming Southside. Now, I'm not trying to name drop or anything (yes, yes, I am) but I kinda know the artist. He’s pretty fantastic and his name is Shaun LaRose. He has several murals around the city and you can learn more about his work here.

Which brings me to something I respect about Chattanooga, it has an active arts community. There's even an organization in town providing grants to get artists to move here and it's working.

One point for Chattanooga

Now, let’s get on with the fashion.


White Dress: H&M
Silver Earrings: Gifted from my very fashionable mother & step-father
(I believe they were purchased at the Shaw Art Fair last year… Mom, correct me if I'm wrong here.)
Silver Cuff: Also a gift, I'm thinking from my Mom, several years ago.
Black and White Polka Dot Ring: Thrifty find
Rhinestone Flip-flops: Bridesmaid gift from my sister’s recent wedding. They’re from Target I believe…

Just like in the spring, I'm fortunate enough to have my sweet friend Lexi taking all these photos with her fancy dancy camera. But I’ll brag more on her later. I PROMISE.

Now it's time for you to head on over to
and check out all the other fabulous participants
in this week’s Summer Fashion Fun.
