This is the second part of the post (but the first part of the evening) I shared with you last time. It is my favorite moment of “going out” because I get to eat amazing food and to laugh out loud with my friends and hubby. Both the decor and the food in this restaurant, called NAVA, are in Southwestern style, influenced by Latin flavors. Chris, who is from Arizona, kept saying that is it is more Southwestern than the Southwest. I should have brought my lasso to fit in better but also to catch the waiter who disappeared quite often.
I love going out and hanging out with my friends but two hours in the evening I usually feel like taking my shoes off and curling up on the coach with a book. Do you ever feel that way?
But this past weekend I survived heroically and I had a great time with my friends in a local restaurant called NAVA. I don’t get to dress up for the evening much so I really liked this occasion to sparkle a little.

Last night I had the great pleasure to meet Scott Schuman, the creative force behind The Sartorialist. Scott was a guest speaker at the Savannah College of Arts and Design. His speech was both inspiring and informative. There many points I would like to share with you from his lecture but there are a couple of them that really stuck with me – that is branding yourself and being self-aware. Both points deal with finding what you are best at (or not), what comes natural to you (or not), what you are all about (or not) and use that to brand and differentiate yourself. As probably many of you, I am still in search of what I do best.
Did you have to go through that process and find yourself? What did you do? How did you do it?
My photos with Scott did not turn out but here is what I wore:
Shirt: ZARA, Pants – BlankNYC , Scarf – Collectioneighteen, Glasses – Armani, Shoes – Audrey Brooke, Clutch – Kate Landry
I had so much fun during Lady Gaga’s concert on Monday in Atlanta. She puts on an amazing 3-hour non-stop show full of outlandish outfits and incomprehensible but fun monologues. I love dancing, so I really enjoy her music but her messages are not always clear to me 🙂
We could not bring cameras in so I did not try but I should have – I would have had so much more food for my blog if I did. I love watching people with creative outfits and even more the reaction of other people towards those outfits. Some of my girlfriends did their make up at MAC and I love their colors.
Here are some pics from the venue:
I can’t wait for the summer to be here. And wearing a nautical theme outfit is one of the reasons. My next step is to add some red and gold tones to the outfit itself to add some splash. The Michael Kors purse will do that for now.

I was not bold enough to wear the little “captain’s” hat from Florence. Maybe next time…
