Finding joy, beauty and a little retail love in Williamson County one find at a time! Here’s our list for October, curated just for you–with a couple Nashville ones thrown in as well!
Pumpkins suddenly seem elegant when fabricated in velvet. Each stem is signed by the artist–and the jewel-like colors look beautiful against tarnished silver and mercury glass. Pumpkins start at $11 at Avec Moi.
Williamson County Coordinate Poster
Add a graphic print to a photo collage for some contrasting substance. This piece is perfect to mix in with a wall of black and white family photos. At ReDo, print by The Old Try, $89.
A perfect gift for under $5 does exist. I want a few to fill a vintage jar for my guest room. I’ll add note asking guests to take one as a memento of their visit. Cross Rocks, $4 at Serenite Maison.
Fall and Halloween Decorations
Boo-tiful decorations that delight young and old alike add some happy fall ya’ll to your home. The selection at Polka Dots and Happy Thoughts is amazing.
Pony Hair Chair
An unexpected update on a classic, pony hair makes this chair read wildly sophisticated. The Chalina Armchair, $1,149 at Fresh Style.
Pretty Cloth Napkins
Almost too pretty to use, these napkins will elevate any dinner party. By Whisper Linen, set of four napkins, $165, iron crown napkin rings, $55 each, at The Iron Gate.
Faux python jacket
This jacket, with slimming black side panels and luxe hardware, is the perfect day-to-night piece to add an element of cool to your wardrobe. Faux python jacket, $189, at Stacey Rhodes Boutique.
Back Bow Tee
Baby soft cotton tee in a deep blue hue gets girly with an oversized bow that reads a bit impish rather than saccharine sweet. Perfect for Saturday when you want to throw on leggings and run errands in comfort, this long sleeve tee is comfort meets charming. $102 at West & Company.
So much to love about this dress–snappy geometric print, crisp collar and cuff detail and rounded hem with subtle side slits. Pair with boots and you look instantly chic. Print dress, $189, at Vignette
Pearl and Leather Bracelets
From local designer Vincent Peach, these bracelets take classic pearls and add an element of edgy glamour. Pile them on for a boho-vibe arm party, or wear one solo for striking simplicity. Starting at $220 at West & Company.
Is it too early to talk coats? No, because if you don’t pounce on the really cute ones, they get snapped up, which this season means be on the look out for cute blanket coats. Here is one that calls for pouncing. Coat, $112.99, at Blush Boutique.
Two Faced Shadow
Perfectly curated collection of nude–but not boring-eyeshadow? Too Faced Natural Eyes is perfection with three large base shadow colors and six accent colors that can create everything from a daytime not-wearing-any-makeup look to date night smokey eye. Too Faced Natural Eyes, $36 at Parlour 3.
Fall is the season to embrace a bold lipcolor. Make your favorite shade last all day by lining and filling in your entire lip with a coordinating lip pencil. Apply lipstick over the pencil and you are good to go. This pencil, by Smashbox, is my absolute favorite since it never needs sharpening. Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner, $20 at Cosmetic Market.
Why do we dread the nightly ritual of washing our face? This magic mitt may make it (almost) fun. Wet the super soft cloth and it removes even waterproof makeup with no scrubbing or black mascara induced raccoon eyes. The cloth washes clean with soap and water. Makeup Eraser, $25 at Parlour 3.
With Halloween right around the corner, a favorite scary page turners needs to be showcased! Set in New York City in 1896, Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, an “alienist”, as psychologist were called in the infancy of the science, helps solve a series of brutal murders with the help of a few famous historical figures like a young Teddy Roosevelt. (Who once served at New York City’s police commissioner.) The Alienist by Caleb Carr, $17, at Parnassus Books.
Get ready for all your fall celebrations with this newly released cookbook chock-full-of celebratory recipes from the hosts of the popular series The Chew. The Chew A Year of Celebrations, $19.99 at Parnassus Books.
Apple pie in a glass–with just enough kick. The fall cocktail menu is out at Gray’s on Main and the Fox Hollow, with Armagnac brandy, apple butter, ginger and lemon, is delicious.
