What I wore: Imogene and Willie 1 Year Anniversary!

Imogene and Willie knows how to throw a great party! For those of you who don't know about I+W, let me school you. The owners, husband and wife team, Matt and Carrie, come from extensive backgrounds working with premium denim brands like Double RL (RRL), JBrand, etc, before launching their own raw denim line in 2009. A year ago today, to be precise.

A quick google search of the store will tell you about their "impeccable selection of salvaged vintage clothes" or the fact that they have "blurred the lines between shop, hang out spot and restaurant". (Design Sponge) But in my words, they simply have a pulse on culture and an effortless way of creating and defining "cool". Just ask the hundreds of musicians, Nashvillians, friends and supporters who came last night to their one year anniversary party. Local artists sang in the fenced in backyard, the local taco truck came and provided fresh, spicy Mexican fare and sangria kept the whole party hydrated.

While I didn't have my own I+W denim on (I do love them though!) I thought I'd post a few pics (taken with my friends new 4G Iphone) of myself and friends while we talked the night away. I think we were the last to leave at 12:30 am...the party was that good!

I wore a little cotton, one-shoulder, mini dress with vintage jaguar belt, and my Nilah cuff from SLEEVELESS 2011 collection.

Thanks Matt and Carrie for bringing your vision of I+W to life here in Nashville. Just one more reason I love it here!
