An outside beautifully styled luncheon where a gal can wear leather, eat beautiful flowers and drink flower-iced lillet is my kind of luncheon (especially the leather part). Cassie’s black and white lambskin leather tee paired with the white tulle skirt makes my mouth water… without even tasting the flowery menu. The oversized jewels and luscious flower crown aren’t missing their cue to scream “statement” either!  I’m not sure the legality of wearing leather to afternoon luncheons, but clearly… these gals are pulling it off.  bien fait!

It was in Oxford, MS., home to a thriving and diverse music scene, where her love for fashion and music inspired her to open her first boutique. After several years in the retail business and a growing desire to become a designer, she decided to sell her store and relocate herself and her daughter to Savannah, GA where she recently finished her final thesis collection at SCAD. Atwood’s designs have a sense of femininity with a rocker-chic vibe. She currently divides her time as a freelance fashion stylist, designer and the joys of being a “not your average” soccer mom.
