Passion For Savannah Fashion: The L.A.B

Leave a comment

Well, you can’t be called “Queen Bee” without a passion for Savannah Fashion and I’m so looking forward to all the great looks parading around Savannah this weekend.  To be sure you’re stylin’ and profilin’ with the best of the Irish, check out the creations by The L.A.B.!

The L.A.B. is a fab fashion design house in Atlanta

“We are getting excited about this coming weekend!  I am an Atlanta-based fashion designer and will be selling my original designs on River Street (including St. Patrick’s Day graphic tees & GREEN accessories).  I will be posted up right in front of Mad Hatter/Bernie’s!  Thanks so much!”  -Lindsey, Head Designer for The L.A.B.  Continue Reading »

Move Over Cinderella: Flip Flops Are The Glass Slippers Of The South

That's So Savannah/busybeevacations.comYes.  That’s so Savannah.

Look.  Even in winter, we usually have just a few days to sport our new wool coats.  It’s just the way it works.  The new winter coats hit the racks and we buy them.  I don’t make the rules.  I do, however, draw the line at rotating my cute flip-flops and sandals in and out according to season.

You see, we walk in Savannah.  It’s a beautiful city all year round, so we don’t need closed toe shoes with platforms, thick soles or seven-inch heels.  Well, okay.  We have them.  After all, we do attend parties and there are times we’re required to stand for presentations or pose for photos with really tall people, but for the most part we walk.

You probably have already figured out by now that, yes, I am pretty much responsible for the nose prints on the store windows of Globe Shoe places to stay in Savannah/busybeevacations.comCompany over on Broughton.  To make amends, I sometimes even go inside the store.  After all, I did just walk all the way over there  and if I walk out with a cute pair of shoes, oh well.  It’s really all about the journey and looking good, isn’t it?

I say so long as a body, woman or man, takes pride in putting together a smart outfit with cute sandals or flip-flops and includes a proper pedicure in his or her beauty regimen, it’s a fashion do!

I hope the next time you see me you’ve been inspired to go foot-tastic!  And remember, no wise-cracks if it’s in the dead of winter.  I’ll be the cool chick rocking a new wool coat and fun flip-flops.

It’s so Savannah and I can’t wait for you to come see for yourself!

The Wearing of the Green

Ladies, if you are in town for St. Patrick’s Day, you need to don the green (unless you like to get pinched)!

Luckily one of my go-to boutiques, Red Clover, has an ample selection of goodies including this adorable t-shirt that is easy to wear with jeans or a skirt and is super comfy for parade festivities!

Wanting to go dressier or in need of a touch of green that will  also multi-task for Saturday’s parade? Red Clover will not disappoint.  I picked up a cute silk top  today – they are still getting green in!

Cafe 37 – c’est bon!

In honor of being March 7 (3/7), I decided I’d write about one of my favorite places to eat and visit, Cafe 37 & 37th & Abercorn Antiques & Design!where to eat in savannah, dining in savannah, best food in savannah

The fabulous Cafe 37 has been a favorite of mine for some time – the food is the focus in this straightforward 10-top cafe. Cafe 37 is housed in the carriage house of the property and you dine downstairs while the busy waiters rush upstairs to the kitchen. If its nice out, you might like to sit outside in front of the cafe.

Cafe 37 in Savannah, Georgia serves up simply delicious French food

I have to say that my favorite lunch fare here CURRENTLY has got to be the pork sandwich.  Its served on rustic French bread and has so much succulent pork that I always just give up and take the second half home,that is unless I’ve had a glass of wine prior (tee hee).

Our helpful waiter suggested I add green apple to the sandwich last time and I will be ordering it this way again in the future.

The Roquefort pear salad at Cafe 37 is a favorite among regulars

Other favorites — for a cold day, the French onion soup in veal stock is the epitome of decadent;  the oyster po boy with the fabulous tartar sauce takes me back to my time at Tulane but without all the grease (I was told that the oysters in the oyster po boy are fried with some vodka so they are extra crisp), and the Roquefort pear salad is always a tried and true favorite that always seems to be a special.

After your belly is full, mosey next door to explore the antiques in 37th  & Abercorn Antiques & Design or to  201 1/2 Cottage behind the big house. To read more, click here:

In honor of it being March 7 (3/7), I thought it would be a fun idea to showcase 37th & Abercorn Antiques & Design located (you guessed it) at the corner of 37th & Abercorn in Historic Savannah, Georgia.

Shop Savannah - you'll find things you never knew you needed at 37th & Abercorn Antiques & Design!

The cottage to the left (above in the photo) is particularly adorable and currently houses J’ai La Peche, a particularly clever shop of antiques and repurposed items.

Inside 37th AAD, you’ll find everything from antique brooches your grandmother would have worn to original artwork by Savannah artists like Hattie Saussey, and also gently used Louis Vuitton luggage & handbags!

Some of my friends over at Modcottage Designs recently started renting a booth at 37th — more to come on this team but here is a sneak peak:

More to come on Mod Cottage as Busy Bee is currently working with Vic & Lana to finish out a townhome in the Victorian District.

Whatever you are looking for (or even if you’re not), 37th & Abercorn Antiques & Design Center is the perfect place to pick up a little piece of Savannah that you can take home with you.

Thanks for buzzing by!

Oh, happy day!

Sneak peak of spring at Globe Shoe Company in Historic Savannah Georgia

Who doesn’t like to be happy?

My good friend, Sarah Rundell, used to give me little gifts in college. She would call them “happies,” just a little something to keep you going and ranged from three cheese bagels to a bag of skittles.

My little “happy” for my Busy Bee fashion friends is a glimpse of spring courtesy of Globe Shoe Company located in Downtown Savannah’s Historic Broughton Street shopping district.

Pop into Globe and see what they have for you – they always have a lovely outdoor window display where you can truely shop (then, drool) the newest looks from the likes of Stuart Weitzman, Sam Edelman, and Cole Hahn (I recommend their Nike Air flats for navigating downtown Savannah’s cobblestoned and bricked roads).

Many more “happies” to come – thanks, Sarah!
