November is the official kick-off to the holiday season, and now that cooler temperatures are finally in play, we’re thrilled to showcase some fabulous fall fashion for three amazing events: The Girls Night Out party that kicks off the Junior League of Memphis Merry Marketplace; the Howl at the Moon fundraiser benefiting Streetdog Foundation and a Memphis Grizzlies home game. Here’s what to wear!
We asked Wardrobe Stylist Jamie Yarbrough of Style by Jamie Lea to help us select three great looks for each event. Jamie’s an expert at helping her clients put together on-trend looks that both incorporate their personal style with their current wardrobe and with new pieces she selects especially for them. Jamie’s expertise includes total closet and wardrobe evaluations, plus a cool online tool for her clients created from photos she takes of each piece of clothing, allowing them to easily create a look for any occasion.
Merry Marketplace special events chair Ashley Eyles, production coordinator Andria Lewis and production chair Amy Spicer are our models this month, showcasing clothes from Sachi, Lansky 126 at The Peabody and The Attic. The Junior League graciously hosted our photo shoot at their beautiful Community Resource Center, and we think you’ll love these what to wear options Jamie coordinated for some great November events in Memphis!
