MINT by Jodi Arnold

Van Jean, a boutique on the same street as M, is having Jodi Arnold of MINT come to Columbia tonight to show her new winter and holiday collection. I can’t wait to see her new designs and meet her! I made this dress Monday night and I am considering wearing it! I am newly obsessed with sequins!

The weekend

My Clemson reunion weekend was amazing! We all said it felt like we had never left. I love that place. I wish we could have gone for a week.

Friday night I wore the gold dress and LL wore the dress with the cut out in the front. I did not get any good pictures of her in the dress, but I have a few of my gold dress.

It rained all day Saturday, so I mainly wore a raincoat, but I did get a picture of my butterfly dress with my cousin Sydney who is also wearing her ellen&ollie dress!

Clemson Weekend!

Friday night:

I can’t believe it’s finally here! We are going to Clemson today! I can’t wait to see everyone! I haven’t seen most of them since graduation. The first 2 pictures are what I am deciding between to wear tonight. I am leaning more towards the gold dress. I am going to make that dress with sequins where the gold is when I get home from this weekend. The next 2 pictures are my choices for the game. It is a 70% chance of rain on Saturday. My entire 4 years at Clemson it did not rain a single game until our very last game. This was the Carolina Clemson game and it has rained at all the games since then. Laura Lee has packed lots of ellen&ollie too so I will be sure to post pictures on Monday! Ahhhh I’m so excited!

Ole Miss!

The Carolina Ole Miss game is tonight. This dress just sold at M to an Ole Miss customer! I didn't even think about it being their colors! I'm thinking about wearing this style dress but in a purple fabric for the Clemson game this weekend. I will have dresses for both teams at the game tonight!! Go Cocks!!!

I cannot believe I had to order new labels already! I remember when my cousin Brian told me the smallest order I could make from the label company was 100. At the time I thought I would never use up all of them. 100 dresses is a lot. I ordered 250 this time, so I have a lot of dresses to come in the future!

New Dress for Sugar

Sugar sold out of this dress in the other fabric, shown in an earlier post, in 2 DAYS!! I couldn’t believe it when she told me Monday that they were all gone already! These are the new dresses for Sugar. I like this print with this style dress better than the last one.

Gameday Dresses

These are a few dresses I made for M for Carolina's first home game Saturday! Cait, the model, works at M and already bought the dress with the bow at the neck! I am going to the Clemson game next weekend and I am thinking about making the first dress in purple or a new style that I haven't put up on the blog yet.

The Business Cards are in!!

My grandmother with a few of my cousins!

My cousins, Samantha and Lucy, with Samantha wearing one of her ellen&ollie dresses.

Yesterday we had an 80th birthday party for my grandmother. My cousin, Brian, brought me the "first round" of business cards. He says the colors aren't right yet, but they look perfect to me! He made these on his new letterpress.
