Charleston Wine & Food Festival Kicks Off + What I Wore + Kate Spade Sale

Yesterday, I kicked off my Charleston Wine and Food Festival Experience with a Wine Blending Class.  I don’t know what was more fun, attempting to make some tasty wines or meeting the people at my table.  One couple (a pediatrician and a dentist in the Air Force) was visiting from Oklahoma and another was visiting from Portland, Maine.

I’ll have to admit, I was pretty overwhelmed when I walked into this scene.  But it ended up being so much fun!  And the wine was fabulous!

Melissa Ann Barton, Mod Squad Martha, who used to cook food for the famous in Nashville, even at the CMAs!, whipped up the most amazing dishes to pair with our wine.

I had some of you ask where my purple ring was from.  It’s from the same local boutique where my Charleston Rice Beads necklaces are from, Candy Shop Vintage.  She’ll have a booth at the Culinary Village, so if you’re there, stop by!

Can you tell we were having fun?

The best part about all of these dishes was the vinaigrette she used, which was Melissa Ann’s very own!

Such a wonderful experience with Stuart and Patrick from The Wine Foundry and Melissa Ann from Mod Squad Martha.

Cannot wait to use her vinaigrettes in some upcoming dishes.  If you’re at the Culinary Village this weekend, she’ll be there too.  She’d love for you to stop by and visit!

What I Wore

My dress is now $175 off and currently available in all sizes! I went  with a medium in this dress for length.  It’s a little shorter than her other ones, but  I still love it.  I’m 5’6″ if that helps.  I’ve had this one since this past Fall, wore it with leggings and booties then.  So versatile!  // Cardigan (same style, slightly different color) // Bow Wedges (Y’all, I LOVE these wedges!  You may remember them from this post a few weeks ago.  They’re new, but such classics that I’ll have them in my closet for years and years to come.)

The best part?  They’re currently 25% off with code: PURPOSE.

Big News!  All of my Kate Spade pieces I wore a few weeks ago are currently 25% off with code: PURPOSE.

These earrings are currently 25% off!

Love this little front pocket, for easy storage.


If you had your eye on my pink crossbody, order it now while it’s 25% off!  That’s $75 off! Don’t forget to use code: PURPOSE at check-out!

  1. Hey! What is the name and color,of the pretty pink nail polish you wore to the wine tasting?!!! Thanks! I’ve been looking for a grown up looking pretty pink color!

    1. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried powder polish after not liking the gels the only time I did it. It’s #127 I think?
