Winter is on its way out and spring is just around the corner. Our dreams of warm sunny days and blooming flowers are starting to become a reality. Kickstart the spring season with three fabulous March events, and kiss those winter blues goodbye with some fresh new looks! What better way to enjoy Memphis in style than to enjoy a rock legend like Stevie Nicks at her Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold Tour, or by dancing the night away at the Red Shoe Gala? Then, to get your creative juices flowing and your green thumbs ready for spring, join The Little Garden Club of Memphis for their Happenings 2017 event featuring Putnam & Putnam.

Our models for this issue are three StyleBlueprint readers: Lindsay Dotson, Erica Zimmerman and Anna Wunderlich. The fashion experts at Kittie Kyle, Lori James and Joseph helped me style these three lovely ladies for our photo shoot, which took place at the iconic Peabody Hotel!

The Event: Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold Tour

  • Wednesday, March 8, 2017
  • 7 p.m.
  • FedExForum, 191 Beale St., Memphis, TN 38103
  • Tickets start at $47.
  • For more information, visit stevienicksofficial.com.

Stevie Nicks’ 2014 album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, is a compilation of 14 unrecorded demos that chronicle memories and emotions from her legendary career and life. And these “songs from the vault,” sourced from 1969 to 1995, are the highlight of her 24 Karat Gold Tour. “From the very beginning of the first song I wrote before I turned 16 to the last song I ever wrote, there’s a certain thread that I use because it’s just what I do,” writes Stevie of the personal album. “The songs are all about love and heartbreak — how to pick up the pieces — how to keep moving.” She is considered by many to be the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, and she is coming to Memphis, so don’t miss it!

What to Wear? Rock ‘n’ roll stars should be celebrated with rock ‘n’ roll style. Stevie Nicks is known for her bohemian style — flowy fabrics, platforms, over-the-knee boots, fringe and lace are all part of her signature look. Take a page from her style book with these looks from Kittie Kyle, Lori James and Joseph, and don’t be afraid to show some skin — just keep it minimal and tasteful.

Lindsay, Erica and Anna are ready for a night full of music and fun in these bohemian inspired outfits.
