The city of Memphis starts to buzz when spring temperatures begin to warm up. The Bluff City teems with fun and festive events, and we want you to savor the season — and to feel chic and confident while doing so! Here are some gorgeous spring looks that will have you feeling fabulous for all of your activities this March.
Three awesome upcoming events, in particular, include Cirque du CMOM at the Children’s Museum of Memphis, Vintage901 Spring Festival, and the GreenShoe Gala at Shelby Farms Park. Get ready to rock these looks from Mednikow, James Gattas, Dazzle, Oak Hall, Mozelle Boutique and Sachi — all styled by the fabulous Caitlin McGill of CRMstyles.
This month’s models work with Vintage901, a community nonprofit with events and weekend experiences, including the Vintage901 Spring Festival, where relationships are formed over shared interests: wine, food and music.
The Event: Cirque du CMOM
- March 2, 2019

- Children’s Museum of Memphis

Presented by IBERIABANK, Cirque du CMOM is a major annual fundraiser for the Children’s Museum of Memphis. Enjoy an evening of fabulous food from local restaurants, drinks, live entertainment, the ever-popular silent disco and so much more! Funds raised through this event go straight to the museum to help with programming and exhibits, to expand outreach programs, increase museum access to under-resourced children and families, provide educational resources to teachers and much more.
What to wear: This is what we like to call a “creative cocktail” look. It means something different for everyone, but for the gals, we recommend a fun dress with a pair of heels and some bold statement jewelry. Fellas, tie and sport coat is spot-on!

Wine lovers, foodies and music aficionados mark your calendars for the Vintage901 Festival hosted by Vintage901, Inc., a nonprofit organization created by a woman with a dream to incorporate culture, community and purpose into a weekend-long wine and food festival that brings people together. From the Grand Tasting at Crosstown Concourse to the Sparkling Brunch at Shelby Farms, this two-day wine, food and music festival will showcase the flavors of the world.
What to wear: This is more of a casual occasion, so break out some stylish jeans or a pair of slacks paired with a fun blouse or sweater, and polish the look with some heels.

Find your best green accessory, and head to the GreenShoe Gala! Emceed by Ron Childers and Joyce Peterson, this is a festive evening of dinner and dancing, plus a wine and whiskey pull and a Kendra Scott jewelry pull. Proceeds from the evening help keep Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline clean, safe and green.
What to wear: This is a dressy occasion, so we recommend wearing your favorite “LGD” (little green dress) or cocktail gown. Men can either dress in a black suit, slacks or even a nice sport coat. Don’t forget your green accessory!
