In May, the Jacksonville Symphony Association introduced Courtney Lewis as its new music director.
The First Coast has no shortage of pizza places. No matter how you slice it— thin and crispy, thick and chewy— good pizza always has an audience. V Pizza, a new Italian-inspired eatery, specializes in Neapolitan-style pizzas (the thin and crispy kind). What may set them apart is that they’re professing to do things the old-fashioned way.
Chanel bag (found at a China Cat estate sale) It’s no secret that I love a good estate sale. There’s just something about hunting through mounds of jewelry and piles of clothes and returning triumphant with that one special item—a vintage Dior dress, a mirrored side table, a gorgeous LANVIN necklace… Recently, I spoke with […]

Come Friday and Saturday evenings (and pretty much any weekday during lunchtime), the eatery is packed to the exposed rafters with hungry customers.

Brick-and-mortar stores and e-retailers are marking prices down like crazy, in anticipation of new styles which will be on racks before […]
A few things I’m loving lately: Anything with an eye motif (if you follow me on Instagram, you know I recently got a pretty cool evil eye mani, from M.A.D. Nails),), Zoe Karssen printed tees and sweatshirts (I picked up a Zoe Karssen bat tee at Nordstrom Rack at the Town Center), the new Proenza Schouler […]
I went to the opening of the new Madewell store in Jacksonville recently, and it was an absolute blast. If you’re unfamiliar with Madewell, it’s owned by J. Crew and, though it has a similar vibe, I like to think of it as the sexier, less buttoned-up, slightly bohemian little sister. The brand hired a […]
