A big southern squeeze to everyone who joined us on Friday at SuthinGirl Presents Fashion, Food & Finer Things at the fabulous AC Hotel Atlanta Buckhead at Phipps Plaza!

We are a city of gracious and gorgeous people!

Sooooo many people came out to welcome the new hotel into our neighborhood! Thank you for making both the Luncheon and Cocktail Party events that will be long remembered.

The AC Hotel provided an incredibly chic setting for partygoers, and as we transitioned from daytime to evening, the sexy glow of the hotel created the perfect vibe for mingling and celebrating the start of the weekend.

FASHION

Guests enjoyed private shopping at pop up shops created by Uncoded Era, Shaye Strager – Style Ambassador for India Hicks, Nicole Miller Atlanta, Alton Lane, Salacia Salts and Sandpiper.

SuthinGirl pampered her guests with interactive beauty experiences by Max Sanchez and his team from White Salon + Spa. Some got the ‘it braid’ from fashion week while others opted for a head full of loose waves.

There was a fun Balmain hair extension bar, decadent massage chair (the fellas were lined up for that!), a nail touch up station and an esthetician giving complimentary skincare consultations with premium samples from CosMedix.

The lovely ladies from NARS Boutique Atlanta made sure every girl had the perfect pout with their super popular Lippy Bar.

FOOD

1Kept Kitchen & Bar treated our tastebuds to savory surprises all day: from pork meatballs to veggie empanadas, watermelon & feta flatbread to pimento cheese & bacon jam, truffled popcorn to grilled Yakatori chicken.

Decadent custom cupcakes by Create Your Cupcake and award-winning gingersnaps by Susansnaps provided the sweetest finishing touch on the evening.

The SuthinPeach

The mixologists at 1Kept created a special cocktail just for SuthinGirl: The SuthinPeach! Peach infused gin with prosecco. It’s sweet and bubbly, and guaranteed to make you smile.

FINER THINGS

I love art. Love love loooovvve art. I treasure the memories of a few shared moments with friends during each event enjoying some of the many beautiful original works by acclaimed local artists that were featured and offered for purchase by CSparkman’s Articurate.

Richie Nuzz and the band El Quattro entertained us during the evening Cocktail Party with their pop/hip hop blend. Talk about the perfect soundtrack for the event! Guests were treated to an exclusive performance of Richie’s new hit single, 3 Days.

We heart our media sponsors, Modern Luxury’s Jezebel and The Atlantan magazines! Everyone went home with the latest issues and we look forward to sharing more photos from the events with you in their pages.

These goody bags were the best I’ve ever done, hands down. And I take a heck of a lot of pride in SuthinGirl goody bags, so that’s saying something. Thank you to all of our generous goody bag sponsors including Allqua Alkaline Water (the reason I felt so good the next morning) and YoToGo Greek Yogurt Holders!

FUNDRAISING

Providing a give back opportunity at events is a long-standing SuthinGirl tradition, and makes for such a feel good. Thank you to the sponsors who donated over-the-top experiences and items to the Silent Auction to benefit Education Cures, and to guests who bid top dollar for them.

We are still tallying but it’s safe to say Education Cures was a big winner thanks to your generosity. I will post soon along with Katie Cyphers, founder of Education Cures, with an update on how much you raised and the immediate action that your dollars will provide for school age children in Sierra Leone!

MORE! MORE! MORE!

I love the warm hugs, new connections, vibrant energy, positive feedback and creative inspiration I get from events like these. Trust me, I’m looking forward to the next one just as much as you are!
