“I’m very thankful that very early on, I realized that the relationship I have with myself is very important and that I have to be my own friend. It’s been very helpful.” – Diane von Furstenberg

November is all about gratitude. We’re sharing 8 reasons we’re thankful this month, and we’re looking for opportunities to show appreciation more often. Because gratitude is a lifestyle, and we hope to wear it well.

We are grateful for:

  1. This new adventure called Est8te, curating collections of clothing, jewelry, handbags and more and for the relationships already established with clients and the new ones we have yet to meet.
  1. The Akola Project’s vision to build a global fashion brand created by and benefiting women living in poverty in five rural Ugandan villages. Their mission is to empower marginalized women to transform the physical and spiritual livelihoods of their families and communities through economic development. Their jewelry: Stunning.
  1. Places to go and Tory Burch shoes to get you there. From flats to boots and sandals to heels, we can travel with you from snow to sand.
  1. Ken Downing for teaching us to understand the allure of fur: “She doesn’t wear fur because she is cold, she wears fur because she is glamorous.” And we have you covered from scarves to vests.
  1. The University of Tennessee Medical Center Cancer Institute for its commitment to research and finding a cure. We are donating 10% of all sales this month from our men’s department to the institute. Stop by for Jeremy Argyle shirts, AG jeans and khakis and ALO exercise attire.
  1. Thanksgiving Day with family and friends. To commemorate those memories, we have Jonathan Adler frames to keep the beautiful smiles of your loved ones close to your heart.
  1. Party clothes for party season! Leona, Haute Hippie, Yoana Baraschi, Nicole Miller and more will be your shimmer and shine for the holiday festivities ahead.
  1. Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving is the traditional first day of holiday shopping, and we will be rocking the racks! All black attire is 20% off on Black Friday.

In gratitude and in style,

Mary Ellen and Nell
