"Get Ready For The Summer"
This image me think of Summer of Love
So I was in Vermillion at North Hills in Raleigh, NC doing a little tweaking and styling on the interiors front) because the ladies there definitely do not need my help on the fashion end) getting ready for their upcoming "Get Ready for Summer" trunk show starting tomorrow Wednesday May 25 continuing through Thursday May 26, 10-6. This trunk show is just in time for Memorial Day weekend, because it us upon us and do you know what you are wearing or packing? If not you might want to stop by Vermillion!
The featured items are vintage jewels from Carole Tanenbaum, tunics from Tunic Love and "watersnake" bags from Beirn bags. On top of all these fabulous well priced I might add find there will be tunics from Tory Burch and Anya Hindmarch with 15% off tomorrow.
Tunic Love has affordable tunics ready for Memorial Day weekend wherever your destination may be. Chic over a swimsuit or skinny white pants you really cannot go wrong. The best part about Tunic Love is their mission statement.
1) To deliver quality and happiness (yippee if I a can buy one, is happiness to me) by using the finest quality of materials and fabrics.
2) Supporting the community and local artisans. Tunic Love's mission statement says that when "when you decide to wear Tunic Love your contribution goes directly towards supporting local communities, weavers and seamstresses who devote their entire lives to their craft."
3) Support children in need. By buying 1 tunic your purchase is matched by a gift of a basic set of clothing from Tunic Love to a child in need in the developing world.
Ladies support the cause and your closet!
Supporters of Lead Uganda came together to enjoy a fashion show and silent auction. Here is a beautiful model sporting a tunic by Tunic Love.

"The Watersnake Bag"
Seriously...I am getting ready to do a post on turquoise and how it is the "color" of the summer. This bag is out of sight, unfortunately I think it is sold...I will find you, ha! Not to worry there are many more in beautiful colors as seen below.
The Watersnake Jenna Hobo Bags
The story of Beirn is a mother Rita Overzat and her two daughters Ali Trier and Jenna Overzat. After a whirlwind of travels to many countries they decided to design a bag, the Watersnake as a memory to their trip to Indonesia just for themselves. After receiving positive feedback from friends and retailers in 2007 Beirn officially launched their signature "Jenna" hobo. Beirn has since evolved into a company with colorful belts, ballet flats, sandals and as well as many GORGEOUS handbags that are sold worldwide and here at our very own Vermillion.
More Ballet Flats and Thong Sandals
