Jared Followill Lists Nashville Bachelor Pad

SELLER: Jared Followill
LOCATION: Nashville, TN
PRICE: $3,500,000
SIZE: 8,050 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Back in late 2009 Your Mama discussed with the children Grammy-winning Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill's $1,825,000 purchase of a modern-minded and newly constructed bachelor pad mansion in the leafy and prosperous Green Hills area of Nashville, TN.

Fast forward to last fall (2012) and the 25-year old platinum selling rock star hitched his love wagon to a slightly younger brown haired gal named Martha Patterson and, as rich and/or famous folk often do in the wake of marriage, divorce and/or a new baby, the newly-wedded couple hoisted Mister Followill's former bachelor pad on the market with an asking price of $3,500,000.*

Current listing details show the vaguely chalet-like and slightly cathedral-esque, three-story residence, completed in 2009, sits on just over an acre of hillside land with five bedrooms and five full and two half bathrooms in 8,050 square feet of fairly airy interior space.** The ceilings throughout much of the mansion appear to be nicely high and the wood floors in much of the house are graphically striated, wide plank, high-gloss, and Goddamn gorgeous. Large expanses and, in some cases, entire walls of windows suck up postcard worthy tree top, rolling mountain, and big sky views.

A compact entry opens into a spacious (and sparely furnished) combination formal living/dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a raised firebox with chatoyant stainless still surround. Say what y'all may but, even though we find the over-sized square mirror in the dining area appallingly pedestrian and the multi-candle centerpiece on the table wholly unnecessary, Your Mama thinks the George Nelson bubble light fixture and the Gaudi-ish dining room table and chairs are a exceptionally taut and rather inspired pair since—if you look closely—they speak the same language, as do the trio of sinuous electric guitars hung on the wall as art. Anyhoodles...

The sizable center island kitchen, outfitted with top-quality finishes and equipped with high-grade appliances, adjoins a family room where a group of caramel-colored tufted leather seating is arranged for optimal viewing of the flat-screen television that's mounted over another raised fireplace with another one of those chatoyant (and ever-so-contemporary) stainless steel surrounds.

The formal living/dining room and the family room both have long banks of glass doors that slide open to a kind of indoor porch with grey tile floors, high ceilings, and an entire wall of wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows. French doors on either side of a stone fireplace—one not surprisingly surmounted by a flat-screen boob-toob—open to a small, trellised terrace with a big view.

We're not sure where each of the five bedrooms are located but it seems clear from listing photos that in addition to whatever bedrooms may (or may not) be up there, the mansion's uppermost floor offers a central common space where Mister Followill has a cache of musical instruments, including a complete and probably loud drum set. A few steps up from the music room, a crow's nest lounge has more of those verdant, wrap round views of the green hills of Green Hills.

The finished area of lowest living level includes a number of recreation and amusement spaces such as a concrete-floored fitness room, a home theater with built-in wet bar/candy counter, and a temperature controlled walk-in wine cellar and tasting room minimally furnished with nothing more than a rustic farmhouse table and eight, Eames-designed Eiffel Tower-base molded plastic chairs.

A matching set of exterior stairs leads down from the slender terrace that runs along the back of the lowest level to a negative-edge swimming pool that fairly well mimics the residence's complicated roof-line. To one side of the pool there's a shaded outdoor kitchen/barbecue situation with four-stool snack counter and in the middle of the pool there's a raised circular spa. That means, of course, that every time Pacolito the house boy brings a fresh round of gin & tonics to spa-sitters he has to wade inconveniently ankle deep into the pool.

We confess that we (currently) have no inside intel about where Mister and Missus Followill plan to move but iffen we had to guess—and we don't have to guess, of course—we'd predict they're headed towards and similarly large and (arguably) more family friendly mansion in one of Nashville's more exclusive and expensive zip codes.

*Actually Mister (and Missus) Followill listed the Green Hills property back in April (2013) at the same $3.5 million price but it's now, after several prompts by a couple of in-the-know Nashvillians, that Your Mama is getting around to it. Don't hate. Sometimes, children, it just goes down like that. Anyways...

**Listing details from the time of Mister Followill's purchase put the house at 7,441 square feet. Make of the discrepancy what you will.

I literally decided what I was going to be yesterday and made my costume this morning!  I always do this every year.  I'm definitely a procrastinator.  My costume was inspired by the Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon "hashtag" skit.  I thought it was hilarious and immediately thought of myself because I hashtag everything on instagram.  So I thought it would be fun to actually be an instagram hashtag lol 
Some people might think I am a really serious person, but truthfully I'm really silly and I actually make fun of myself ALL the time so I knew I had to be this.  

To make this I just bought poster board and construction paper then used fabric glue to piece it all together.  Thankfully I had white eye liner left over from last year's costume so I was able to write the word "insta" in white. I spent no more than $10! Then I just put on any white pieces I could find in my closet.  I think it's more fun to create a costume than buy one! 
Have a fun day loves :)

Pop-Country Star Gary LeVox Lists Nashville Spread

SELLER: Gary LeVox
LOCATION: Nashville, TN
PRICE: $3,350,000
SIZE: 12,802 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Nick Nameless, a helpful little birdie down in the star-studded city of Nashville, was kind enough to let Your Mama know that top-selling singer/songwriter Gary LeVox of the pop-country trio Rascal Flatts two-stepped his Nashville-area mansion on the market with an asking price of $3,350,000.

Iffin Your Mama is being honest—and we always are—we'd come right out and spill it that despite having sold than 21 million albums, toured to sold out audience, and taken home more than 40 industry awards Your Mama wouldn't know a Rascal Flatts ditty if it came up and chawed off our ham hock. However, it didn't take much scroungin' 'round the interweb to figure out that Rascal Flatts' several dozen industry awards include (but are not limited to) six ACMS, five AMAs, six CMTS, seven CMAs, five People's Choice awards, one Grammy, and a star on the famed Hollywood Walk of Fame. Anyways...

Property records we peeped indicate Mister LeVox picked up the sylvan and rolling 2.62 acre property in March 2005 for $295,000 and it is he who is responsible for for the (almost garishly) opulent mansion that current digital marketing materials describe as a "grand Romanesque Villa designed by [Nashville-based architect] Mitchell Barnett."

Lantern-topped pillars and electronically operated iron gates mark the entrance to the multi-acre property that's located in a small, gated enclave of similarly sized mansions. The medium-length driveway slips over a gentle rise before it arrives at a rather grand(iose), double-wide circular drive that hugs a central fountain. A long flight of stone-balustraded steps climb (and climb and climb) up to a soaring, double-height portico with, when turned around facing away from the house, bucolic over-the tree-top views of forested mountains. Current listing details show the 18-room villa has a total of 12,802 square feet on two floors, plus a finished basement. There are five bedrooms, six full and two half bathrooms, at least four fireplaces, and, at either end of the house two two-car attached garages with direct entry.

We're not sure but the lack of personal effects suggests to Your Mama that Mister LeVox and family either prefer a type of day-core that looks and feels like a hotel or they've already vacated their unapologetically decadent suburban Nashville abode that sports an almost exclusively and rigorously adhered to brown, beige, cream and white color palette. The center hall entry has mottled mink and ecru colored inlaid marble floors, a double-height ceiling, and dual staircases that curve and float and were clearly designed with prom photos and over-the-top Christmastime day-core in mind.

A double-columned gallery at the back of the foyer leads to a spacious, step-down formal living room dressed with with a hulking carved stone (or, possibly, poured concrete) mantelpiece, a deep coffered ceiling, and painstakingly swagged and lightly pasamenteried drapery in an almost identical taupe shade to as taupe-colored deep pile wall-to-wall carpeting. The formal dining room has a fabric-paneled wall treatment that probably helps to deafen the clankety-clank of silverware during holiday dinners and both the formal dining room and the office/study that flank the foyer have mottled mink and ecru marble floors, French doors, and a fabric-tented ceiling. Personally, we don't care for or even understand a pleated and fabric-tented ceiling treatment but maybe we're funny that way.

The kitchen, fitted with raised panel cabinetry and chunky carved corbels, can be accessed from the dining room through a sink- and wine fridge-equipped butler's pantry or, less elegantly, directly from the formal living room through doorways on either side of the fireplace. The bullet-shaped kitchen has an a oval-shaped center island, marble tile floors laid on the bias, and dark granite (or some sort of stone) counter tops that seems to be a perfect match to the fireplace surround. The adjoining breakfast room has lots of windows but, as far as Your Mama can tell, no direct access up to the outdoor entertainment areas that run along the back of the house. The service area behind the kitchen includes a small home office with built-in desk and cabinets, a roomy laundry room, a powder room, and back stairs that link to both the upper level bedrooms and the finished basement.

A double-doored main floor master suite has all-but-windowless bedroom with raised corner fireplace as well as a separate sitting room and a wet-bar/morning kitchen. The a custom-fitted walk-in closet and dressing room is as big as a bedroom and a private bathroom offers a two-sink vanity, a marble-lined stall shower, and a soaking tube set awkwardly into a windowed niche (not-surprisingly) dressed with a bespangled balloon shade.

The five upper level bedrooms include a second, chandelier-lit master suite with domed ceiling, a quilted fabric wall treatment, and more swagged and pasamenteried drapery. There's also a corner fireplace, a two-room bathroom suite with super-sized circular bathtub, a compartmentalized and fitted walk-in closet plus an even bigger cedar-lined closet-room, and a private loggia with ceiling fan and fire pit.

There are at least two family room spaces on the upper level and down in the basement there's a game room with full kitchen as well as a home theater with rust-colored, extra- wide wale corduroy upholstered recliners. An extensive cache of listing photos Your Mama perused also show a long, skinny and kinda claustrophobic looking fitness room and several more less-than-optimally-shaped rooms of unknown and/or flexible utility.

For a 2.5+ acre property the usable area of the backyard is surprisingly compact. A curtained loggia with built-in barbecue station overlooks a small-ish, half-moon swimming pool that's set into a hedge-topped curved retaining wall. A think strip of terrace between the house and the swimming pool leads around the side of the house where a sunken trampoline is wedged into a corner of the house. Beyond that there's a flat bit lawn and a playhouse done up in the same "Romanesque Villa" style as the main house.

We're not sure of the LeVox family's future real estate plans but we do know that their old house, the one that's currently for sale, is located in the same small gated enclave south of Nashville where Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban once owned a home and where country superstar Kix Brooks owns a three-story contemporary on XX acres that backs up to an even larger spread with a modern mansion custom-built (and owned) by oft-reported to be divorcing but still touring together NashVegas royals Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

Your Mama Hears...

...from trusted tipster Babbling Babette that supermodel turned Emmy-winning reality t.v. power player and budding apparel tycoon Heidi Klum is fixin' to hoist her mock-Med mansion in L.A.'s Brentwood area on the market with a price tag somewhere around $24,250,000.

The German-born Miz Klum and her estranged hubby, four-time Grammy-winning musician Seal, purchased the estate out of foreclosure in late 2010. They paid, as per property records, $14.2 million so if Miz Klum gets anywhere near their (rumored) asking price she'll have earned a substantial profit, less carrying costs, upkeep and improvement expenses, and real estate fees.

We're not sure what, if any, improvement and/or alterations Miz Klum made to the roomy residence or property but at the time of their acquisition the spacious mock-Med mansion had 8 bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms in, as per listing details from the time, about 12,300 square feet of decadent interior space that included a wine cellar with tasting room, a cigar room with separate filtration system, a colossal kitchen with an early 17th-century Scottish mantelpiece, a domed library with a fireplace said to have been extracted from Napoleon's farmhouse, and a dining room that was originally installed in the Pierre Hotel in Paris and was dismantled and re-mantled in Brentwood.

The property spreads across 8.52 acres—or just over 12 acres, depending on where one looks on the internets—in the guard-gated Brentwood County Estates community where some of the other residents include (in)famously philandering former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and real estate size queens Tom Brady and Giselle Bündchen who recently had their custom-designed and—ahem—eco-conscious 22,000 square foot mega-mansion featured in Architectural Digest.

The children will recall that it was Your Mama who first let the celebrity real estate cat out of the bag a couple weeks ago about Miz Klum (and her new bodyguard-boyfriend) dropping close to ten million clams on a brick-built neo-Georgian-style pile in a little-known gated enclave high in the mountains above hoity-toity Bel Air.

Pleated Stripes & Pop Of Color: Lucky FABB Day 2

I wore this outfit for the second day of Lucky FABB and it's a little more girly and fun than yesterday's post.  The vibe was much different from the first day because it was held in the Conde Nast building (same building as vogue!), so it seemed a little more restricted but still amazing nonetheless.  We got to hear from many entrepreneurs like the founders of Polyvore, Birchbox, and Warby Parker.  

Skirt: (here)Forever21/ Top: (similar) MNG by Mango
Blazer: H&M (also love)/ Shoes: (similar) Breckelles
Necklace: Prima Donna /Bag: Phillip Lim For Target

I am probably one of the most indecisive people you would ever meet when it comes to two things: food and clothes.  Sometimes I am not that bad, but when I shop I swear I am the worst and it's only progressed over time lol I found this skirt and instantly loved it but I knew that I wanted to wear it with a colored top.  I had no luck finding one for awhile so I almost returned the skirt twice.  I decided to venture off into different stores finally and that's when I got lucky. I love the brand Mango but there are no stores near me except for their collection at JC Penny's.  There is not a huge selection there but I found this top and scored it for only $11 on sale.  I wish it came in other colors because I would have gotten more!  This is the perfect top to add a pop of color.  It's sleeveless so I paired this black blazer on top which I just found at H&M.  I love the cut of it.  I've been on such a blazer kick lately and this one will be in my next outfit post as well.  I realize I go through these phases where I wear the same type of piece consistently for awhile.  

One of the speakers I loved the most was Tamara Mellon, the co-founder of Jimmy Choo.  She now has her own line and we were all obsessed with her "leather legging boots"... all one piece! 

Another highlight for me was listening to Leandra Medine from Man Repeller.  I really loved her personality and way with words.  She is really talented and of course, funny :)

I finally came up with a costume idea for Halloween and hoping that I will be able to put it together in time.  It's really silly but very perfect for me at the same time lol Hopefully I can do it and share!

New Post on Eat Move Sleep Blog

Yesterday, the Dan's Plan blog Eat Move Sleep published a blog post I wrote about sleep, artificial light, your brain, and a free computer program called f.lux that can help us live healthier lives.  Head over to Eat Move Sleep to read it.

David Sedaris Buys Emerald Isle Oceanfront Getaway

BUYERS: David Sedaris and Hugh Hamrick
LOCATION: Emerald Isle, NC
PRICE: $825,000
SIZE: 2,640 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: By his own tally, Grammy-winning humorist and author David Sedaris is a bit of a real estate baller with an international property portfolio.The best-selling author, side-splitting story-teller, prolific memoirist, and engaging monologist and his long-time man-mate, painter and set designer Hugh Hamrick, don't maintain a vast stable of over-sized mansions and high-maintenance estates like most of the real estate ballers Your Mama discusses around here but they do, none-the-less, own at least eight relatively modest residences in (at least) three countries.

In addition to their current residence, a 16th-century farmhouse in the rural South Downs area of West Sussex in the south of England, the couple also own: their former home, a rustic cottage in an almost non-existent village in France's Normandy region; an apartment and a house in London; not one but three apartments in Paris;* a house in North Carolina, where Mister Sedaris says his sister lives; and, their most recent acquisition, we learned from Mister Sedaris's latest installment in The New Yorker, an ocean front duplex in Emerald Isle, NC that he and his mister picked up last summer (2013) for—as per property records—for $825,000.

The purchase of a beach house in Emerald Isle, NC, might seem a tetch odd for someone who has, for quite some time, happily lived abroad. But it makes much more sense if you know that Mister Sedaris grew up in Raleigh, NC, spent childhood summers with his parents and five siblings on Emerald Isle, and used to tell himself that he would one day "buy a beach house and that it would be every one's as long as they followed my Draconian rules and never stopped thanking me for it."

Listing details (and other information) Your Mama dug up indicate the unassuming—if downright unattractive, two-story duplex was built in 1978 on a high dune with unobstructed ocean views up and down the shoreline of the slender barrier island. All together, as per digital marketing materials, there are six bedrooms and four bathrooms in 2,640 square feet but, given the exterior symmetry, Your Mama thinks it's probably safe to assume that each of the units has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,320 square feet. One rental listing we turned up online indicates there's a (probably and hopefully double-locked) doorway that connects the two units that each rented for the 2013 season at rates that started at about $1,200 per week.

Our opinion, as informed by rental listing photographs Your Mama dug up on the internets, is that at the time of Misters Sedaris and Hamricks' purchase each of the units was inexpensively (and depressingly) decorated with a mis-matched hodge-podge of cast-offs and other furnishings that look like they were selected not for personal attachment or aesthetic satisfaction but rather for their low cost, long-range durability, and stain resistance.**

As per digital marketing materials, both of the units have upgraded kitchens, a description that translates for at least one of the units to egg-shell toned linoleum flooring, new and average-quality stainless steel appliances, and white cabinetry topped by cornflower blue laminate counter tops. A one- (or maybe two-) stool breakfast bar separates the kitchen(s) from the carpeted combination living/dining room(s). Large windows are filled with beach and ocean views and a door in the dining area connects to a shared, lower deck that runs the full-width of the duplex. The lower deck, shared by both units and shaded by the deck above it, has a handful of rocking chairs and not-rocking chairs, a couple of picnic benches, which we love because we love a beach-side picnic bench, and, somewhere, an outdoor shower area.

A brief and unscientific study of the window placement on the rear façade suggests to Your Mama that four of the duplex's six bedrooms face the ocean and that at least two of them have direct access to a shared, upper-level deck with a sensational and sea gull-ish view. However, butter beans, based on the various rental listing photographs Your Mama perused, we'd bet both our long-bodied bitches, Linda and Beverly, that all six of the almost comically bare-bones bedrooms were done up by the sellers with little more than decoratively questionable bed linens and window treatments.

A catwalk extends off the back of the lower deck and descends to another deck with built-in benches that's set half-way down the dune. Although this slightly elevated location would undoubtedly make a sweet spot to view a summer sunrise Your Mama imagines this deck fills up with with a kaleidoscopic tangle of beach chairs and umbrellas, booze coolers, boogie boards and other necessary beach equipment that turns it into more of an ankle-breaking hazard than a serene early a.m. spot to reflect on whatever it is one reflects upon when they staring contemplatively at the ocean.

*Private note to Mister Sedaris: You mentioned in this interview that you and Hugh sometimes just hand out the keys to one of your Paris apartments to friends, acquaintances, and virtual strangers. Well, hunney, if you ever feel like tossing them keys Your Mama's way, please do. We just j'adore Paris in the winter and promise not to leave any cut-rate cereal in the kitchen cupboard. Think about it. Seriously, think about it. Anyways...

**These are, to be sure, excellent qualities in furnishings for investment-oriented real estate that is regularly rented out to seaside vacationers who may or may not treat the furnishings in a considerate or even respectable manner. But, believe it children, low-cost, durable and stain resistance does not have to be this ugly. It really doesn't.

Sophisticated Chic For Lucky FABB Day 1

When figuring out my outfits for Lucky FABB, I just wanted to go with something chic and sophisticated.  This is what I wore on the first day and at the end of the post are some photos from the conference too :) 

Blazer (similar): H&M/ Pants: Cortefiel/ Shirt: Target/ Shoes (here): Forever21
Bag: Phillip Lim For Target/ Necklace: Charlotte Russe 

I've been trying to go to stores that I don't normally go to.  I think I get so used to the same "go to" places that I often forget there's a ton of other stores out there. So I ended up going to the Palisades Mall Center in NY (haven't been there in forever) and came across this new store called Cortefiel.
If you live in the area you should go and check it out because they don't have online shopping :( I fell in love with these pants because as you know I am all about a good print! They were a little more than I wanted to spend, but I knew I wouldn't be able to find these exact pants anywhere else.  They are so soft and comfortable too. I decided to keep the outfit black and white while throwing in pops of gold with these studded shoes and my accessories.

The lovely Editor In Chief of LUCKY- Eva Chen.
 I could seriously listen to her talk for hours.  Absolutely love her personality.

The gorgeous Eva Mendez came to speak about style and her new line with New York & Company.  I always liked her, but after seeing her in person and hearing her talk, I can now say that I love her.  I think it's hard to really know what someone is like when you only see them in movies or in the magazines.  A true opinion can be formed once you see first hand for yourself what they are like and she's a doll.  

The stunning Kate Bosworth also came to speak about style and her new line with TopShop.  I also loved her. I found her really inspiring and genuine.   Unfortunately I didn't get to meet her or Eva, but it was still a great experience to listen to their stories and their struggles and how they got to where they are today.

With these two lovelies Jessica & Paulina.

There were so many other incredible speakers on day 1 and as I mentioned in yesterday's post, it was a really positive and amazing experience.  

On another note, I can't even believe that Halloween is this week.  I always wait until the very last minute to figure out my costume but I might not even dress up this year.  I did a post on Fearless Fashionista for costume ideas for kids & tweens.  You can check it out here

Hope your day is amazing!

Roger Federer Going Modern in Herrliberg?

He may be in the sunset of an almost freakishly stellar career on the tennis court—yesterday he lost in the finals of the Basel indoor tournament in his home country of Switzerland to Argentine Juan Martín del Potro—but tennis titan Roger Federer still rakes in vast sums of money, some of which he spends on high-priced real estate.*

In addition to a villa in South Africa and a luxury apartment in Dubai the low-key but luxe-living 17-time Grand Slam winner reportedly maintains a number of properties in Switzerland including (but perhaps not limited to) a terrace apartment in the wee lake-side municipality of Wollerau and a pair of newly constructed and very contemporary side-by-side chalets in the Swiss Alps town of Valbella—one for him and his family and the other for his parents—that are reportedly linked by an underground passage.

Mister Federer's most recent addition to his impressive real estate portfolio came in late 2011 when he and his missus, Mirka, spend somewhere around 29,000,000 Swiss Francs for a vacant 5,800 square meter parcel high on a steep and scenic slope above Lake Zurich in the Laubhölzli area of the historic and wealthy lake-side community of Herrliberg. Your Mama's currency and land conversion contraption shows those figures equal just about 32.4 million U.S. dollars (at today's rates) and a bit more than 1.4 acres.

Of course, Your Mama really have no idea if or what exactly Mister and Missus Federer plan to build on the prime piece of property in Herrliberg but a little birdie—let's call him Caleb Clockmaker—recently pointed Your Mama's nosy nose to the website of a fancy Swiss architecture firm that appears to have been commissioned to design a glassy, spacious and modern-minded three-story residence for the Federer family.

No details of the sleek abode are included on the architecture firm's digital portal but renderings indicate there will be a carport/motor court beneath a giant circular cut out through which a trio of trees grow, lots of glass-railed terraces with sweeping views over Lake Zurich, a smaller secondary building—presumably for guests or staff, an outdoor swimming pool that will most certainly cost a fortune to heat in the winter, and, even though it's just a short walk from the TC Herrliberg tennis club, a private tennis court.

*The Forbes folks estimated Mister Federer's income for the twelve month period between June 2012 and June 2013 to be about $71,500,000, the vast majority of which was derived from appearance fees, exhibition matches, and fat endorsement contracts with brands such as Rolex, Mercedes Benz, Nike, and Credit Suisse.

Dynamite Style

Today I am going to introduce you all to a Canadian brand called Dynamite.  I'm working on something really fun with them in November that I will be announcing soon and can't wait to share all the details because it will involve you too! :) 

Dynamite's clothes are a nice blend of what I like to call sexy sophistication.  
They have great on trend pieces for both the working girl and the party girl at affordable prices.  With 295 stores worldwide and locations in 10 different countries, I really hope they open up more stores in Jersey! They are owned by Group Dynamite, the same company who also owns the store Garage, which you might be familiar with already.  Online shopping for the US will be launching very soon!  The really cool thing is that they have an outfit section on the site so that you can even shop for an entire look that they've already styled.  They also have different trend sections to make it easier to search for the pieces you want the most.

 Here are some of my favorite Dynamite looks to give you a better idea of the brand's style. 

They've really nailed the whole edgy chic mix.  I'm especially loving their collection of faux leather pieces for fall as well as their cozy sweaters.  Also trending in their stores are lots of black and white as you can see in the above images.  You can get frequent updates by following them on instagram @dynamitestyle.

Make sure to check out my previous post from today as well "A Perfect Match."
Have a great day!
