Smarty Fall Fashion Giveaway Week continues!! This is hands down my FAVORITE part of…
Following months of anticipation, Neiman Marcus and Target Corp. unveiled their unprecedented holiday collection. The collection, which features 24 of America’s preeminent designers—all members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA)—will be available Dec. 1 at all Target and Neiman Marcus stores, as well as online at Target.com and NeimanMarcus.com. In recognition of the 24 designers who created products for the holiday collection, Target and Neiman Marcus are donating a total of $1 million to the CFDA.
To accommodate anticipated demand, Target and Neiman Marcus will limit purchase quantities of the limited-edition collection. Guests can purchase up to five of the same item per transaction at Target and Neiman Marcus stores, and online at Target.com and NeimanMarcus.com. Items range in price from $7.99 to $499.99.
Smarties, we’re super excited to bring you the Scoop on the most anticipated Grand Opening to hit Ballantyne Village, The Cheeky Bean boutique. This is not just another swanky fashion boutique. As soon as you step foot in the store, you will notice a difference. You will feel like you’re hanging with your favorite gal pals, but you’ll spend a fraction of the price as traditional boutiques.
Owner and Smarty Mama, Justine Hundley, greets you with her infectious smile and treats you just like her own family. The best part about her store – you won’t find anything in the store for over $100. We Smarties bow down to Justine for that pledge! But don’t be fooled, the quality is not compromised one single bit, nor is the fashion statement you’ll make. The Cheeky Bean is an online women’s contemporary clothing boutique focused on bringing you the very best in all things fashionable, fabulous and affordable. What I loved most about this store is all of the stripes, color and patterns – everything in there made me feel beautiful!

And last but certainly not least, we introduce you to our final Smarty Fall Fashion Giveaway Designer, Gina Made It Headbands. As a curly haired girl, Regina von Schack of NYC always kept an eye out for comfortable, chic headbands to help with those unruly hair days, or to keep the beach breeze from creating a wispy mess! As a designer/stylist she figured it wouldn’t hurt to try making a few bands herself
Her line began after years of creating decorative party headbands for birthday girls and brides-to-be. Her younger sister, who at the time was a senior at Marymount School of NY, started wearing her headbands to class and people began asking her where she got them. Mimi’s response: “Gina Made It”!
Today we are featuring fab accessories for the new Smarty Mamas or Smarty-Mamas-To-Be. Smarties meet Chewbeads, nontoxic jewelry for moms and safe for babies to tug, touch and chew.
Chewbeads are the genius creation of Lisa Greenwald. Shortly after the birth of her son, she recognized quickly that he loved to put everything in his mouth and her fancy necklaces were a favorite. Like most moms, she didn’t feel comfortable letting him chew on them, with concern that they might break or have unwanted chemicals. As a veteran of the fashion industry, she had an amazing collection of necklaces and bracelets, so with those as her inspiration, she set out to create soft, non-toxic jewelry, which was colorful, chic and, above all else safe. Hence, Chewbeads!
Today we present Erin McDermott Jewelry!
Erin McDermott’s jewelry has been featured in fabulous fashion magazines including Real Simple Magazine. She lives right here in Charlotte and is on her way to celeb ranks! Erin’s gem business was born when she took jewelry design classes and fell in love with the process of creating jewelry. She uses semi-precious stones, sterling silver, organic forms, textures, glass, freshwater pearls, wood, and unique materials to create her amazing jewelry. These materials help Erin create jewelry, which is classic but also modern and unique.
Happy Thursday, Smarties! We are having a BALL with the Smarty Fall Fashion Week. It’s so fun to give our Smarty gal pals pink & green presents every day of the week and it’s not even Christmas! Tune in through Sunday as we unveil a new giveaway daily.
Today we present Jude Connally!
Jude Connally’s tagline says it all:
“Style that has less to do with what you wear and more to do with who you are.”
Living life to its fullest and embracing moments to connect, create and explore – is the passion and inspiration behind Jude Connally. Getting dressed is so much more than putting on your clothes each day. It is defining and expressing who you are.
Our Giveaway Week is kicking into high gear this hump day. Remember to check us out every day through Saturday as each day we’ll unveil a fabulous new designer so you can reinvent your wardrobe. Actually today, we’re going to pay some attention to the hubby’s duds.
Today we present Southern Tide!
Southern Tide was founded in 2005 by then 23-year-old Allen Stephenson, who traveled to Italy and became inspired by some of the most beautiful elements in the world. From historical architecture and couture clothing to high-performance sports cars, he noticed common threads – exceptional craftsmanship, clean lines, fine quality and classic design.
This inspiration led Allen to create Southern Tide. In designing his first piece, he enabled the best in design, balance, harmony and quality the space to complement each other, resulting in what many regard as the most comfortable polo shirt in the world – the Skipjack polo, which has become insanely popular on college campuses, particularly in the South, and now they have a collegiate line.
