The calendar has officially flipped to the month of love, and the Magic City will soon turn pink and red in celebration! This month, we’ve teamed up with two fabulous local boutiques, Moda and Monkee’s of Mountain Brook, to style nine romantic looks for wherever February takes you. And what better backdrop for a photoshoot than the gorgeous new showroom at Lolo French Antiques?!
Today’s beautiful models are two representatives from our local Kendra Scott store located in the Summit. It was such a treat to get all dolled up with store manager, Kamrie Meyer and assistant manager, Ashley Bailey! They’re rocking style suggestions for upcoming Birmingham events: RENT presented by Broadway in Birmingham, Casablanca at the Alabama Theatre and the Twilight Supper Series with Chef Adam Evans. These are all ideal events for Valentine’s, Galentine’s or any day this month!
Happy Valentine’s Day, B’ham! Now, let’s get to styling.
The Event: Casablanca at the Alabama Theatre

Grab your Valentine and enjoy a sing-along performance with the Mighty Wurlitzer, followed by a showing of the classic favorite Casablanca. Sip on a very special Valentine’s Day cocktail, glass of wine or beer, and snuggle up with your best guy or gal. The night begins at 7 p.m.
What to wear: This Valentine’s Day, keep it sweet and simple. We suggest pairing your most festive sweater with a comfy pair of jeans and a cute (and warm!) pair of booties. If you have plans to hit the town following the film, slip on a cozy LBD, and you’ll be ready for the best Valentine’s Day in the Magic City.
